I Will Never Go to a School Reunion

    What Am I Supposed To Do There Anyway?

    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...

    Uh, No Thanks

    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...

    No Way In Hell.

    There is no way in hell that I am ever going to a school reunion. High school wasn't a good time for me. People didn't have anything to do with me in high school. The reunion wouldn't be any different. You couldn't get me to go to one of the things even if you chased me down the...

    Screw High School Reunions

    I wouldn't be caught dead attending any school reunions. I despised school. For me it was just this place I was forced to attend, and where I never wanted to be. I had no friends. None of the boys in my class wanted to go out with me. I was one of those kids who was too...

    Did Not Want To Be There In The First Place, So Why Would I Go Back Years Later?

    One thing I told myself is that I would never go back to a school reunion. Why would I want to go back to place that i despised in the first place anyway? To me, a reunion is for people who either need to bring about their success or for people to recapture there youth and need...

    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...

    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!

    I'm Living My High School Reunion

    I live in a pretty small town, so I basically always end up running into a lot of familiar faces. It sucks! Not that I hated them them or anything, but they always ask too many questions about my oh, so bleak life. "What are you doing now?" "Are you in college? Which one?" "What...

      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...

    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...
