High School Reunions - been to one? - Page 5

post #61 of 92
I completely forgot about high school reunions...I think my 5 year was supposed to happen sometime in 2008...I guess either I just wasn't invited or no one gave a shit. I'm guessing the latter. That's what happens when everyone from high school is on Facebook and we can see what other people are up to without going through the hassle of actually meeting in person. I guess there's always the 10 year when all the girls are older, flabbier, and have kids and the guys are fat and work in a factory somewhere...

Seriously, if you think this is a plan for more action, get used to handjobs. From the hands of a "Dr." of DDS. What we are intrinsically, rarely changes. And it never changes just because we get a certain degree.

I have yet to attend any of mine. My 20th is coming up in a few years. If I'm in that part of the continent, I'll attend. If not, no big deal.

I beg to differ. Lots of women will fall all over a doctor. Of course, they're typically the type you wouldn't want to marry and would go anywhere they see $ signs not just the Dr.

I will give you that. I've seen similar things in action many times. As anyone that works in health care knows, quite a few of the young women are hoping to get their "Mrs." degree. But a person rarely goes from g33k to playa just because they start to make (or people think they do) good cash. Take the cash or social standing away, and you're still basically the same person you always were. Usually. In rare cases, people do actually change.

You can still dream. Be that rare case.

My graduating class had 700 people. I think I know a few hundred of them, but have only kept in contact (by contact I mean at least occasional interaction) with 50-100.

Holy hell. My class had like 900, 780-ish of which actually graduated. I've kept up with 1 person.

Once I got on facebook I got pinged by around a dozen old classmates, some good friends, some I have no idea who they are but they say we had a class together and I'm all WAT??!! ...fine, if you must.

Jeebus. My high school, Grade 9 up, had about 1100 people total. Not quite as Little House on the Prairie as Kwilk's, but that was a big school you went to.

Er.
Um.
I will only admit to attending three or four reunions for classes that were not mine.

Went to my 10 year. It was so mind-numbingly boring that I was gone after an hour. I did get a good laugh though to see all the old "cliques" still hanging together. I'd rather wished I didn't at all, as some of the hot cheerleaders I knew got fat & ugly.

Just went to my 20 year in October. That was a blast. 20 year = open bar. 10 year = cash bar. That was all the difference in the world. Now that everybody reconnected, they're having "reunions" every couple of weeks. I get invites on Facebook, but I've seen enough of these people for now.

I think it's the third biggest district in the state of New York (pretty sure there are a couple on Long Island ahead of us). My sister is currently in tenth grade and, IIRC, her class has ~1,000 students in it.

I've only been out 3 years and this has already happened.

My man, it weirded me out. I had to check my senior yearbook, because I was doubting myself. I thought "maybe they looked hot to me back then because I was a horny teenage virgin." Sadly, no, they were hot then and fat & ugly now.

My 20 is next year too. I've heard it said that the 10 year is the "fooling yourself" reunion where you try to act like your life is awesome and can't be topped, but the 20 and beyond are "real," for lack of a better word, because everyone's full into adulthood. So that you're not who you were then is perfect reason to go.

I hate that this forum has become so dominated by young people. Or is it just my imagination? It seems when I joined just a few years back everyone was older. Was that just my imagination?
