Greetings Everyone,

Isn't it great to be back together again? Maybe for some and maybe not for others. Some of you came to gloat about how your life has been others came to see old friends. Some didn't even show up.

I stand here today to talk about the old days. I remember like it was yesterday. Walking up and down the halls everyone pretending to be each others friends and coexcisting until we could get out of this pit of dispear. This is the one layer everyone saw. That is the fake part of this school. Everyone basically hated everyone. Everyone was willing to get to the top. Everyone wanted power and vengence. I was so glad I didn't let any one of you push me out of school before I could get my diploma.

Now, let's talk about the horrible or not so horrible things you all did to me. Some of you were actually genuinely nice and for that I say thank you. You guys are part of the reason I stay in high school. 

The jocks were the school's high part of the food chain. They could pick on people and get away with it because teachers would openly let it go. I got harassed sexually by some of you and you know who you are. Also I would like to give a shout out to the jocks who knew it was happening and did nothing. You guys are the best. I hope you are proud of yourself. As if I wasn't different enough you guys had to alienate me and taunt me. What was the purpose of it? Were you trying to knock me down so you could feel better about yourself or are you that threatened by me that you had to push me down in the dirt and keep me there so I wouldn't be in your way?

To the preps that dominated almost every club and activity we had. You guys were not very good at welcoming people in. You guys decided who was in and who was out. I want to point out that we are people and not fashion styles. We should be treated with respect and digity. You guys would demand and take jabs at the "outs" that we decided we could careless. It didn't hurt us at all but it probably hurt your club each time someone couldn't handle the judgement.

To the outcats thank you for trying to make me fit in your clique but it wouldn't have worked out anyways. We were all just "toys" that escaped from The Island of Misfit Toys. Even if we came together to form a clique we would have either disroyed ourselves or get destroyed from the other groups. 

Today I look at us and I see people that dropped out because of three things: 1. You got pregnant in college. 2. Your drinking was more important than studying. 3. You just couldn't do it. It is funny how I started on the bottom end of the spectrum and now I am surpassing all of the ones that left me hanging when I could have used a helping hand. I want to point out that most of you are done with school, I on the other hand am not. I am planning on getting a Masters degree and a PhD at UCLA. A highly respected University. It was so nice to see you all again.
