Secret Pleasure Secret Pleasure
My 10 year high school reunion is coming up in August, but I have to decide by May if I am going and pay for the tickets. I am debating if I want to because High school wasn't the greatest experince for me.

Wasn't interested...wasn't friends with 99.9% of my fellow classmates, so I wasn't about to drop $500 to spend an evening with complete strangers.

My 40th is coming up! Never been to one - not planning to start now. I wouldn't recognize a single soul.

I have absolutely no interest in seeing any of the people I graduated with.

Other because mine is NOT coming up, but I do plan to attend. I really love my town, however, I hated HS. I had a really bad experience during my sophomore year and when a girl found out about it, she told others and it caused me a lot of extra grief. I left HS early and immediately got my GED. I had went through the hell of it for so long that I couldn't take it any longer. It wasn't something as simple as having your phone number written in the boy's bathroom. It got pretty bad. What happened to me was humiliating and when this girl found out and told everyone, I really didn't think I'd ever stop feeling like trash about it. Things got worse and worse and eventually I felt the need to stand up for myself, which resulted in my second fight. The girl's boyfriend ended up beating the lights out of me (literally! Lol) and that was the final straw. I was suspended, he was too, but I left and never went back. Thankfully, my family understood. My dad had such a hard time with it. The guy who beat me up had been sort of bullying and threatening me and day after day my dad would call and ask him to leave me alone (lol love having a protective father!) and finally he got a little rude to the guy. He was 18 and I was only 15 so we went to our local police after my dad taking photos of my eyebrow swollen to hell and back, my cheek bone, head and my injured knee. Sadly, the told us there was nothing they could do about him hurting me and turned us away!

OK how the hell did I end up on THAT story?! LOL. I'm sorry. Anyways, HS was a bit** for me, I left. My dad and mom were really good to me during the struggle and encouraged me while I was getting my GED. SO my point (although I went crazy getting to it! lol) is that although I hated HS, I cannot wait to go for our reunion. Mostly because I made it through all those nasty, nasty things and am so good now! I am kind of proud of myself now that I think of it. It makes me feel good to be able to see the people that told me I would amount to nothing and let them see that it actually turned out opposite from what they thought. I also would like to go to meet back up with friends I've lost touch with and see how they are.

Heck, I'm only 22 now so my reunion will be long away, but I still think I will go. I still live in the same place I did when I attended school, but things have changed in our area and it'll be nice to go back and see everyone and maybe re-friend some of my oldies!

My high school had an all class reunion (very, very small high school, my graduating class was ~30 and it was the largest in the school's 30-year history) last year and I wanted to go to reconnect with some of the people I hung out with, but I realized I was likely to know very few of the people who actually went, and I was mostly interested in seeing teachers, who'd be difficult to chat with. I ended up not attending.

No HS reunion where I live, sadly. Though, I'm unschooled, so I'll be able to just reunite with myself or something. Would go if otherwise.

I don't know if my school does reunions or not. I haven't heard of any other classes having a 10 year reunion. I suppose I'd probably go if there is one.

I'm not sure. I didn't go to the 5yr because I wasn't satisfied where I was in life and didn't want questioned. Now that I've graduated with a bachelor degree and will hopefully be out of my mom's by early next year then I may go but only if my best friend goes with me lol. Most people I care to speak to are my friend on facebook. My graduating class had a lot of stuck up snobs which I still don't get because no one was rolling in cash at this school out in the COUNTRY so no one had any reason to treat others like crap or like they were better than someone else. Come to think of it, I doubt it. I was mistreated by the so called 'in group' crowd of girls and I don't care to see them even though some tried to be all nice toward the end of senior year and said something to me and my friend about how they don't know why were weren't ever friends. Probably because you were bitches and chose to stick your nose up at us. I was friends with anyone, I don't care what 'group' you associated with, if you were nice to me, I was nice to you. I was never a geek, outcast, or whatever and I never understood why those girls were SO mean to me and I still don't. I think I'm a fun, funny person and if you take the time to get to know me you will like me.
They can look me up on facebook if they are nosy enough to see what I have done with my life.

Like I said, I keep in touch on facebook or actually getting together with the people that matter from my class. I always felt I was part of the wrong class, I got along better with the year below me. The 5yr turnout wasn't so great from what I saw in pictures on facebook so I probably won't go unless my friend does and can REALLY convince me or guilt trip me into tagging along with her. I didn't like school much but outside of school, I had a GREAT time with my friends and those are memories I want to talk about and I still speak to them so I can get together with them. I also made a good bit of friends from other schools once I was able to drive. I felt like I didn't belong at that school (I moved there in the 5th grade).

When my reunion comes I definitely will NOT be attending. I have no desire to see those miserable people from HS ever again.

I have not decided if I will go or not. Mine is far enough away that I don't have to worry about it yet, but I most likely won't go. My hubby won't want to go with me. I really don't know if there is much for me to go back for. I only remained friends with one person and she was all that mattered. So, I doubt I will.

I graduated 2 years ago, I don't forsee a reunion ever happening. I might go to one, if one was planned.

I really don't plan on going to mine at this point, but maybe in the future if they announce it will be something special I might consider it.

Our class is so disorganized that we never had a 10th. I don't know if they'll make arrangements for a 15th since we didn't have a 10th or not. Having said that, my husband and I graduated together so I don't know if we'll go to ours or not if they ever have one.

I was going to go to mine last October but it would have costed $70 for me and my husband to go. The main was I was going to go was to show off how much weight I had lost and to show off my husband since I am pretty sure that no one in my class had married someone overseas. I was all excited about going until I found out it costed money to go.

I missed my 5 year and 11 year (they messed up 10). I'm friends with most of the people on FB anyway, probably won't go.

My five year is coming and I'm pretty sure I'll go. I'd like to see how much people have changed.

I went to mine. over all it was a boring time. I caught up with some of my old friends, but after that it was a waste of time. we have all moved on to other things.

Mine isn't for awhile yet, but I have no intention of going. I hated high school, and I was one of the most popular targets for bullying in the school. I have no desire to see people who used to tell me they were going to rape me on a daily basis.

My graduating class was so slackass that we're the only class in my high school's history to not have a 10 Year Reunion. Not that I could have attended, anyway, because I lived across the country and could barely afford gas to get to work.

I doubt we'll have a 20th, too. The only people I wanted to keep in touch with are on Facebook, so there's no point in seeing how successful the cheerleaders and award hogs are when I'm still in college and divorced. I've kept hold of my soul despite all I've gone through, which isn't an easy thing to show off at a reunion.

And all the teachers I liked either died or transferred somewhere else.

Hyacinthgirl - that's downright disgusting! And people wonder why some try to bomb their reunions in revenge?

Oh heck no. Sounds lame. I just don't have a reason to see all of those people -- the few that I would want to see, I've kept in touch with.
