Have any of you gone to your high school reunion? If you have, how was the experience? If not, how come?
For those of you whose time for your first high school reunion is a ways off, would you go to your reunion? If no, why not?
Suffice it to say, the reason I ask is because I was invited to my high school's 10-year reunion (some time on Thanksgiving weekend, I believe) and I'm 100% certain about not going. Also suffice it to say, that I haven't seen say, 90-95% of the classmates since graduation (class of 300+). I have a couple of close friends who I still keep in touch and meet up with quite frequently, but most of the people I knew were either acquaintances or friends I wasn't really that close with and eventually lost touch with. I have no idea if people remember me as I'll have trouble remembering them and so, I guess that's the intrigue of the reunion, but the fascination is lost on me.
I don't know, I'm hardly nostalgic about high school. It was just a place I went to in 4 years and those were 4 years that floated by really. I was pretty popular, but I didn't really want to be. All I wanted was to go straight home or go to the gym and just live a quiet high school existence. It didn't pan out that way, for better and for worse. Aside from the few friends who I view as the siblings I never had, all I saw were people that just wanted me to keep them company and nothing else... but I guess that's the teenage mentality we eventually grow out of.
I'd say the thing that irks me most about my class and my high school in general are, well, it's a bit hard for me to describe right now. That's a story for another day, I reckon. I'll just say that those people need to realize there's an actual world outside a 5-mile radius of campus. I'll explain about that when I'm in the right frame of mind to.
