    My 10 yr is coming up and I’m so pissed they’re planning it the day before I fly home for the holidays. I would totally go. I sort of lost contact with a lot of friends from HS and I’d love to reconnect.

    ETA: I was in an IB program so mine would be maybe 100 kids that took classes together all 4 yrs. My larger hs had a reunion over the summer and I had 0 interest in that.

    I skipped my 10 year- I didn’t talk to most of those people in High School, why would I want to talk to them know?  I might consider going to the next one, some of my friends who went said they had a nice time.  Plus mine was on labor day weekend, and I had reserved a camp site for our mini-moon last spring!

    Went to my 10 year and it was pretty uneventful. I pretty much keep in touch with everyone I wanted to, coming out of hs!

    I’ve only been out of highschool since 2009 so it’ll be a while for my reunion, but I’ll definitely be going. I come from a really small town (our highschool was only 200 people and I went to elementary with most of them) so it’ll be fun to have everyone together and catch up (:

    I have no interest in going.  I don’t keep in touch with most of my high school friends, and the ones that I do talk to still, I keep up with on my own.

    I clicked No, do not want, but it’s more accurate to say that it just wasn’t enough of a priority to give up the other things I wanted to do those weekends. Plus, the planning committee always seems to want to make it this big, expensive, fancy thing that I just can’t afford. If it were convenient, and easily affordable, I might go. I’m already still in contact with the people I want to be in contact (thank you, Facebook!), though, so maybe not. 

    So maybe my vote should be Sure, if it’s convenient. And affordable. And I felt like it.

    The people from high school that I want to keep in touch with I already do.  I have no interest in going back in time and thinking about where everyone is today.  I’m happy in my life, and the people who matter to me are a part of it already.

    Maybe? But mostly because I want to see the train wreck most of my class became. But I don’t feel much need to go back, they were awful to me then so why would I want to see them after they popped out 5 kids from 4 baby daddys and got a beer gut?

    If there was no Facebook, then I would of gone this year because I would be curious how everyone was doing. But since we do have FB, I don’t see the point.

    Plus I hate the boring little town that I went to high school in & am in such a different place that most of the people I graduated with (for example, about 90% of my class has kids) and the reunion included several family activities – which is not my scene.

    Mine will be this year. I will NOT be attending. If I don’t talk to you after 10 years, I really don’t care to start now. I’ve kept in touch with all the people I cared about.

    Nope. Not because I didn’t enjoy high school, I just have zero interest.

    I went to a very indie/alternative high school. Reunions must not be in our collective DNA, because I don’t know of a single graduating class that has planned a reunion. And since I have no desire for a reunion, that’s fine by me. I’m not one to intentionally re-live the past, regardless of how entertaining those years may have been. ;).

    Edit: Thanks for making me realize that it’s been 15 years since graduation. I think that realization just aged me. LOL

    I went to my 10 year and then went a couple years ago when my school (which doesn’t exist anymore) they had the first all class reunion.  My class had a 25th reunion last year but I didn’t go.  Now they do an all class reunion every year.  I have no need to see people every year. 

    I live about 7 hours away now.  I’ve moved on, gone to college, built a career, and am getting ready to get married for the first time at the age of 44.  I’m not saying this to sound snotty but I have very little in common with one of my friends from HS that got pregnant and married our senior year, stayed there, and is a grandmother that works at a local convenience store.  I also don’t want to make her feel bad because we chose two entirely different paths in our lives.  Maybe she’s happy and I hope she is but what on earth would be talk about?

    I keep up with several friends on FB.  That’s much easier.  🙂
