I Will Never Go to a School Reunion

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 357 People

    Ugh

    I went to a small school where everyone knew each other.  And we all grew up with each other.  And when I was young, I was friends with all the "popular" girls.  But, once we hit that middle school age...I apparently wasn't good enough for them anymore...

    Not Because I Don't Want To

    I will never go to a high school reunion, not because I don't want to but because I wouldn't know where to go. I lived in a midwestern state growing up and attended two high schools in my hometown. Due to an ex-boyfriend harrasing me I had to switch mid sophomore year. My junior...

    I Won't Go and You Can't Make Me!

      The idea of attending a High School reunion doesn't appeal to me in the slightest. There are only one or two people from my class that I'd ever want to see again which doesn't justify my dealing with the other 600+ who'll show up wanting to relive the "good...

    I Don't See The Whole Point.

    Personally, I have no clue why I would attend a high school or college reunion. I am quite an introvert. Creating a Facebook account was an annoying task to say the least. I spend most of the time deleting the account off and on, blah blah blah... lol I feel strongly that people...

    One Reason Only

    Im not that person anymore and I like it like that. I dont need others to pretend about what was when we all know the reality was a lot harsher than we want it to be.

    School Blahhhh!

    Everyone thought I was weird in school and I never felt like I belonged. I don't think I'll ever go to a school reunion because I never liked the people at my school! Too many snobs,too many *****,too many rapeist!

    3 Year High School

    The People I Would..

    hang around weren't really.. joiners. I've noticed whenever my graduating class thinks of putting together a reunion, all the "popular kids" are the ones that are going, I'd get along with them, but I really don't care how their lives are doing.

    Never. Ever.

    I am always annoyed when I hear people say high school is "the best years of your life." Um, maybe for you, but certainly not for me. I have no desire to revisit it or 99% of the people I knew at that time. Peaking in high school must be such a bummer. If being a...

    Catching Up

    School reunions are usually organised by those who feel they have the most to boast about. There's always a new mother or two on the committee, and the closest the class of that year came to producing a celebrity. Most often there's a doctor and a lawyer present, too. While...

    A Gathering Of Strangers

    I think it is sad how I spent all those years growing up with the same people, and yet, when it came time to graduate, I hardly knew anything about them. I didn't care to know them then, and it was easy to just grab my diploma and walk away forever. I feel like such a cold person...

    I Don't Remember Anyone From School

    The truth is id I think really hard I can remember just a few people from highschool. I have kept in touch with anyone and don't really care how they are now. I know this sounds calous and self-centered, but it is the truth. It was a long time ago and they have no impact on my...

    I Cannot Face It

    No, I will not go to a school reunion. High school was a terrible, traumatic time in my life. I was struggling with various issues of identity, not to mention ordinary pressures of adolescence and extreme academic expectations from my parents. I hated people for things they had...

    What The Heck Would We Talk About?

    I graduated from a very small rural high school. There were only 14 in my class. Of those 14 only three of us finished college. Only two of us went on to grad school and never moved back to town. Most got married right out of or soon after graduation (some 'had' to). They...

    Family Reunions Are My School Reunions

    I went to a few public schools until my 9th grade year. Then I was home schooled with my siblings. I finished out my home schooling, while my siblings eventually went back into public schools. Still, my siblings were my classmates for a few years. Therefore, my "class reunions...

    Best Day of My Life

    One of the best days of my life was when I left school. Twenty two years on, I do still keep in touch with one school friend, but have no wish to relive old memories with a bunch of people who I'd probably have little in common with now. Although some people do look back with...

    It's not that I hated school nor my batchmates. I have always loved school since I was a kid. However, I think school reunions are superficial. Except for my bestfriends who I regularly hang-out with, I am not the least interested in meeting my batchmates again. What am I...

    Don't Care About The People From School

    I'm done with that chapter of my life.  I moved on.  I have been out of school for coming up close to 20 years. I didn't go to school events there, missed my 10th reunion and don't care to go back. I keep in touch with the handful of people that I want to.  I doubt I would go...

    Probably no one at my high school reunion would remember me.  It was a pretty large class.  I'm not ashamed but I just don't have anything interesting to tell the other folks.  It would be very tedious.  Worse, I don't drink so I couldn't even get through it...
