High School Rings
Newsweek has a short article this week that talks about the growing number of home school students who are choosing to purchase high school rings. After finishing the article, couldn’t help but think that if I knew then what I know now, I wouldn’t have purchased one. Sure it’s a symbol of ones accomplish, but considering that they are so pricey and I stopped wearing mine about two years out of high school, if I had to do it over, I probably wouldn’t buy one. Of course, I didn’t really learn my lesson with the high school ring because after I graduated from Michigan I purchased a college ring. A couple years ago I stopped wearing that too. So maybe buying the rings are a right of passage. Every now and then, I put back on my college ring, but I can’t see myself wearing my high school ring again. For now, it’s tucked in my jewelry box collecting dust. Maybe if I went back to a high school reunion I’d pull it out again, then again, probably not.
