    Question 20 Year High School Reunion - To go or not

    Advertisement



    I am having very mixed emotions about going to my 20 yr high school reunion. Currently slated for Sept 30 this year. On one hand I'd like to go and see what everyone looks like, on the other hand I wasn't overly popular and haven't kept in touch with anyone from school. I would have liked to have lost a few more lbs before I went as well. I feel like I'm not where I'd like to be at this point in my life. Has anyone gone to their high school reunion? Was it worth it? I hate to spend $130 for a night and I didn't end up having a good time. Any thoughts?

    I went to mine and had a blast! I couldn't believe how old everyone looked. We now have a yahoo group for our class. Re-kindled many lost friendships.

    I went to my 10th (9 years ago) and was disapointed. The people I wanted to see were not there, the ones I could care less about were. I have not been to one since. I am in a similar situation to you as I do not keep in touch with anyone from school. I guess for me its just a art of the past. no need to go back.

    Well, go get a makeover right before you go and rent a Ferrari or Porsche.

    When they ask how you have been, say "Just great". When they ask where you have been, say "A little here, a little there".

    Well I guess I have done SOME things that others may have not done, currently I don't have a house, just an apt. But I have gone on 3 cruises, 4th planned for December. Not everyone there could say that. My school was/is a fairly well to do area, but my family have moved there BEFORE the area became 'ritzy' so we weren't rich. Just don't want to have egg on my face. I guess worse case scenario would be I chalk it up to a learning experience and move on.

    At 38 you really shouldn't care anymore about what others think. Just go have fun!

    Re: 20 Year High School Reunion - To go or not

    I dont mean to be the party pooper but if it was my turn to go, no way. I would rather do anything else at all than go to a reunion.

    There was nothing wrong with my class, or school, but I just dont find the need to go and show off to my old classmates and have a competition on who is better off in life. Im sure that is just stereotypcial of class reunions, but if I were to go to one and people would start showing off and saying I am a doctor, I married your ex girlfriend, I would just be so disgusted and have to leave.

    Plus all the people that I want to talk to that were in my class I still talk to. And that is very few! I see them from time to time and most of them are still without a good job, and live a very bad life.

    This is all my opinion, but if you want to go to your reunion TechieGirl, GO. Dont worry about showing off, dont worry if you have a few extra pounds, just be yourself. And if they dont like you because of who you became then they are still in high school, and you are the one that actually graduated.

    Mine wasn't about who did better, stuff like that...it was different then I expected. Everyone was just very excited about seeing each other.

    By then RIM will have come up with a device that's implanted under our skin and has camera lenses in our eyes, so every day we'll be able to see the world through each others eyes.
