1. Did You Go? ( why or why not) /What year?

Sorta. I was a bridesmaid in one of my best friend's weddings that same weekend, so it was tricky and I missed a lot of the official events.

2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

Not at all.

3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when you went?

Nah.

4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?

Since I was hardly there, nothing I can recall.

5. Any disappointments?

Didn't get to see everyone I wanted to see given I was only able to pop through for a lil while.

6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your reunion?

Not really.

7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?

In the age of social media, there aren't many surprises on this front.

8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?

Conversely, in the age of social media, it's fascinating to see who takes strategic pics to disguise their weight gain. Some people were a LOT heavier than I expected. I hope my poker face didn't show that...

9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your reunion?

Not particularly, but it's about the journey, not the destination, right?

10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?

Not particularly.

11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?

Didn't really have one. My crushes are all still pretty dope, tho.


12. BONUS: 15/20+ year reunion.... how was that?

I guess if we were having a 15-year, it'd be happening sometime in the next several months. Though there's been this recent all-school reunion thing that's been happening. Perhaps there'll be something tied into that? I haven't heard any buzz about it so far, tho...

I feel those reunions are for the folks who were popular or made super friends with folks from high school.

My graduating class had 700+ folks. I am not in touch with any of them.

We still got stuff from each reunion even if you didn't go as log as they hadcurrent information.

Forgot to say that social media does all the work for you if you want to be nosy. You just made me go look lol

it was supposed to be last may. not many people responded. then it was push to this past october...again not enough people responded. finally it was allegedly moved to this coming may and i haven't heard anything since.

fact is, Facebook ruined school reunions. I literally see everyone I'm interested in seeing (my friend from HS that I'm still friends with) and I know what virtually everybody else I'm remotely interested in is up to thanks to their Facebook. Why on earth would I want to schmooze with a bunch of people I don't really care about. The mysterious element of "i wonder what _____ is up to?" just doesn't exist anymore. the romanticized "high school reunion" from the movies just doesn't have a place anymore in my opinion.

Not to mention times have changed. 28 year olds just don't have the lives past generations have had. Most 28 year olds are either still in school in some regard, or are just starting to settle down with someone (save a few early birds). people stay single longer. I feel like the 20th anni will have a much more interesting turn out for this generation.

What I can say though, is that going back to it....you realize a few things. I actually felt like damn...I wish I had ventured outside of our Black circle a bit more. And maybe that wasn't all that possible, since I wasn't an athlete and really had no reason to roll with the White people there...but still, I feel that the cliquish ways of High schoolers (hell, of humans) can limit our overall potential. And I say that because most of the "clique" I rolled with is doing decent as a whole, but surely not exceptional....and that's actually the reason that noooooone of my boys came back. Most felt like they weren't doing well enough to even want to show their face. When I told them that barely anyone from our class was doing "great"...they were just like "damn....well....that shit was still probably wack!"

>1. Did You Go? ( why or why not) /What year?

Yep, 2012 (c/o 2002)

>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

Barely (c) Donna Goudeau

>3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when
>you went?

Nah. I knew it wouldn't be any "I wish I coulda had you" girls there. And I didn't have anything to prove to anyone

>4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?

1. Talking to 4-5 of my homegirls there...NONE of them remembered who the Prom Queen was. When I said "It was Jessica Jones" they said "you mean Jessica Hart?" and I said nook....Jones! And then someone said "wait, Jessica Jones signed in....*looks around*..OH...her????"

2. It was 25 Black guys, 25 Black girls in my graduating class of like 365. At the reunion...only about 40 people came in total....9 of the Black girls came....I was the ONLY Black guy to come back.

>5. Any disappointments?

See #2 above...the fact that I was the only Black guy, and that only 40 people came.

>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your
>reunion?

Nah...just found it interesting that everyone there knew about my DJing, mainly thru Facebook. I think many of us feel like people ignore what we post, and if they don't *like* it, we feel they didn't see it.

>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?

Nahh

>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?

Nah

>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your
>reunion?

Never really thought of it much. I had assumed I may be married, but I wasn't, and most folks weren't. Also, I was SHOCKED to talk to a few White folks who I didn't really know, and find out that they had struggled in the job market just like most of my friends had. I always felt rich White kids would have it all handed to them.

>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?

Ehhhh, nah

>11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?

Never had one. One girl I had a tiny crush on was there, and still looked cute, but I ain't say anything.

Yes/ graduated in '94

>
>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

Not really

No, just to have fun

Nothing really

>

Maybe that more people didn't show up.

>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your

Nah, alot of stuff was a distant memory. Like there were no emotional connections to certain things.

>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?

Not really, my boy and his wife hadn't started Black and Married with Kids at that point I don't think.
>
>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?

at that moment no, but now.........


>
>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your

Other than not being married, I was working and funning it, so that was good enough.


>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?

Eh, not really, it just was what it was.
>
>
>11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?

She didn't come, but I did wind up sleeping with a girl I was real cool with and flirted with when we were in school.

>12. BONUS: 15/20+ year reunion.... how was that?


we didn't have a 20...it's kind of crazy, but folks just sort of let the date pass by. I think my whole class is kind of apathetic to it. Plus with FB, and get together's, you can see and talk to whoever you want when you want.

No. 2010.

>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

No, I didn't even consider it.

>3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when

Have a busy enough life that I don't need to go to a school reunion.

>4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?

Apparently some people actually went.

>5. Any disappointments?

No.

>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your

Only that I have no interest in anyone I went to school with that isn't currently in my phone's address book.

>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?

No idea.

>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?

No idea.

>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your

Absolutely.

>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?

No.

>11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?

She's been a hardcore porn star and is now married with two kids to the guy she went out with after me, who stuck by her through the whole thing. Bullet dodged!

>1. Did You Go? ( why or why not) /What year?

Yes I went in 2004 bc I wanted to know who was fat and how fat.

>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

It felt geeky and unnecessary. And nosy.

>3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when
>you went?

Who fat? How fat? I wanted answers.


>4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?

I got high with a friend from 8th grade. And found out I was probably the only person I knew who DIDNT smoke weed or use any other drugs during high school.

>5. Any disappointments?

Not really.

>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your
>reunion?

I looked even better than during high school.

>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?

No.

>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?

Not that I recall.

>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your
>reunion?

I was getting restless.

>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?

Not bc of the reunion.

>11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?

1. She has 5 kids and is cheating on her husband. Her lover lives next door.
2. He is on FB but posts nothing. He apparently showed up at an unofficial event I didn't attend. I'm still mad.

>12. BONUS: 15/20+ year reunion.... how was that?

I will not attend another reunion. FB is enough.


fuck you.

Didn't go, I was in a probationary period on a job I started so they wouldn't allow for the time off. I did go to the planning party, though. This was late 9o's.


>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

I don't see a reason for there to be any anxiety. They're people just like me.


>3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when
>you went?
>

Other than fellowship? No.


>4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?
>

Some people I were cool with didn't even remember me, and didn't believe I graduated with them. You'd have to be pretty crazy to lie about going to a school just to come to a dinner I paid for myself.
But the most surprising thing is that one of my classmates got arrested and did prison time for multiple counts of rape against teenagers (and I'm talking 13 and 14, not 17) that continued into his 2o's. He's now on the national list.


>5. Any disappointments?
>

No, I was glad to see everybody was doing well.


>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your
>reunion?
>

Just surprised how many women actually liked me when we were in school, and didn't say anything. Also how many of them were willing to let me have their way with them at that moment.


>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?
>

Aside from the sex offender, if that qualifies? One of my classmates is a pro golfer now and doing well for himself.


>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?
>

Nobody really fell off. Most of them are doing what they said they'd do, which I was glad to see.


>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your
>reunion?
>

Yes.


>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?
>
>

Yes.


>11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?

We didn't go to the same school. She dropped out of high school early on, and now has a few kids with a guy she's not married to. I think I did alright on that front.

We're trying to plan a 2o year reunion now, but that's a few years off so hopefully it goes well. And if this place is still around, you all will know EXACTLY what happened!

That's the benefit of being an old man on OKP


>1. Did You Go? ( why or why not) /What year?

1993-YEs, 2003-YES, 2013-NO because the class planned one of those "multi-year reunions" and made it crazy lavish and expensive...didn't seem worth it.


>
>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

10 year, I didn't think I was a successful as I should have been, but found out compared to many of my classmates, I was balling. 20 year, I felt like it was pointless because I still see the people I really had any interest in, but I went anyway.


>
>3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when
>you went?

Just to see people I haven't seen in a while.

>
>4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?

1993, I ended up hooking up with a long time crush. 2003, some people looked the same, some radically different.


>
>5. Any disappointments?

1993, some folks I wanted to see didn't come. 2003, same thing.

>
>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your
>reunion?

Nothing.

>
>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?
>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?

A lot of the cool/popular kids went on to have ...meh lives, while most of the nerds or quiet kids actually became successful.

>
>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your

1993, no. 2003, yes

>
>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?

No
>
>

1993 - see question #4... it didn't last. 2003, she didn't come. I suspect because she'd run into me.

In response to Reply # 0


          

I graduated from a HS that I attended for 2 years, in a city I didn't grow up in. While most of my classmates grew up with each other, I only knew them for a couple of years. Some of the people I was closest to were a year behind me too. No reason for me to go.

>1. Did You Go? ( why or why not) /What year?
Yes. Grad year 2002, reunion year 2012

>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?
Almost none...I don't get embarrassed or easily bothered by awkwardness.

>3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when
>you went?

No

>4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?

A lot more people showed up than I expected. I'd heard from friends that usually not a lot show up. And it was fun. I'd heard they can be lame.

>5. Any disappointments?

No

>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your
>reunion?

My educational accomplishments were pretty good compared to other folks even though I don't always feel that way.

>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?

Not particularly...you'd expect a surprise.

>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?

Same as #7.

>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your
>reunion?

Not quite. I'd like to have started a family by then. But I am fine with where I am in life so it's not an issue.

>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?

Not particularly.

>11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?

I never had one.

>

Hasn't happened yet

If they did nobody seen or got the memo cause none of my friends have brought it up and we left that school in 2001. I would go. I would love to see and talk to people and see how they all developed as people.

I really wanted to go after i saw that movie 10 Years http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1715873/

>1. Did You Go? ( why or why not) /What year?
Yeah I went...it was in 2010...
>
>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

Not at all. Most of us looked the same anyway and I haven't talked to most of them since I left HS.

>3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when
>you went?

Not really. I just wanted to have a few brewskis, see some folks, and visit my parents. I have to have at least two reasons to head back to the Carolinas...

>4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?
That I never got the picture I paid for...

>5. Any disappointments?
So there were 3 High Schools in the district at the time. Due to low turnout, they combined all three high schools for the reunion. To put it in perspective...there were close to 1400 students who graduated between the 3 HSs and only about 100 showed up. And most of the folks that showed up traveled to get back to Columbia. Hardly any of the locals participated.

And then there's what happened to the money? The venue only cost $400 and we only went to two places the entire weekend. It was $150 per person and all we got was that one meal at that venue. Where did the money go?

And the fact that I missed The Roots Picnic that year for this. The reunion as a whole was somewhat disappointing. Considering that I could have seen Public Enemy being backed by The Roots...in hindsight...I probably would have rather opted for that instead...

>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your
>reunion?

That I was better off than most of the folks there. Considering that I graduated in the bottom half of my class back then.
>
>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?
Nah. Other than me...everybody was where I expected them to be.

>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?
A lot of folks I expected there didn't show up. So yeah...there were a bunch...

>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your
>reunion?
Absolutely...a few days before I left I went to a NBA Finals game with my squad in it (Celtics)...so yeah...I was where I wanted to be.

>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?
Motivated? Nah...that was already there...

>11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?
She wasn't there...
>
>12. BONUS: 15/20+ year reunion.... how was that?

Just dawned on me that this year would be my 15 year...odds are I'm not going though. I have other things planned that will take priority.

>1. Did You Go? ( why or why not) /What year?

fuck yeah i went. i was excited. my graduating class was like 125 people so everyone was relatively cool. and we had some really pretty women and i had gotten better with age, and yeah....pretty much everyone was excited. c/o 1998.

>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?

kinda one. an ex who i broke up with. wasn't sure how that was going to go. she didn't show up anyway. and...we had ours on Drexel's campus which is a dry campus. so there was "supposed" to be no alcohol there.

>3. Did you have any specific goals you wanted to achieve when
>you went?

not really. i got some liquor in there tho. and not just a personal bottle. i showed up like if ya'll partying with me, then this is how we do things. and that's where the legend began.

>4. Most surprising thing that happened at your reunion?

Mr. D our 12 grade Psych teacher married a girl we graduated with. they both were there as a married couple. i mean...people kinda knew cause there were pics and stuff on myspace, but still. i was like hey Mr. D. he was like you don't have to call me that. its just Tim now. its messed up tho, cause he was probably like 24 teaching us in HS. and a 5-6 year age gap is totally normal at this stage of life, but it was just....different.

>5. Any disappointments?

i didn't get any pussy.

>6. Learned anything about yourself before/during/after your
>reunion?

i thought i was shy in HS. and i was. but i forgot i talked a lot. i was shy around you if i didn't know you, especially girls i din't. but if i knew you, you knew that it was jokes and fun and games and crazy times. so when i showed up 10 years later like BAM....let's party, people were like i knew you were gonna get crazy. they weren't even surprised.

>7. Anybody Blew up you didn't expect?

kinda. but not really. the big girls got bigger, but the normal sized girls stayed the same.

>8. Anybody fell off you didn't expect?

nope.

>9. Were you where you wanted to be in life at the time of your
>reunion?

i don't want to be in life. i just am where i am.

>10. Were you more motivated after your reunion?

no. i don't compare myself to others.

>11. High School Sweetheart? How did that turn out?

one didn't show. the other did and we briefly reconnected. she was on her way to being a pastor tho and that didn't last long. crush a-pleanty were there tho, and that was fun.

>12. BONUS: 15/20+ year reunion.... how was that?

we did a 15 year one too. just as good. this one we had liquor there and it was just a good time. afterwards a bunch of us got together and smoked weed, which i wasn't doing then, but had become prolific at since. and everyone was chilling. the next one is gonna be even better.

>please humor me...im going somewhere with these questions.
>Curious how WE deal with high school reunions.

note....my HS was 85% Black, 10% white, 5% Asian.

The walls from old cliques came crumbling down... we reminisced.... we made empty promises to totally hang out again in a week... and then the walls came back up and we returned to our regular lives.

I had one old classmate try to kindle a friendship... I was genuinely happy to see him thriving because he seemed like he could've easily gone the wrong way but we weren't tight in high school and I soon realized I really wasn't trying to build a friendship with him now.

>1. Did You Go? ( why or why not) /What year?
No. I was virtually unknown in school so it would've been a complete waste of time going. I would've been in a room surrounded by people that didn't know me so it would be extremely awkward to say the least. Graduated in '96.

>2. Any hesitations/ anxieties about going?
See above.

and i'm not on FB, so i don't keep tabs on folks from HS like that except for my actual friends. and we get together (shit, it's really only one dude and he's like my brother) often enough and communicate regularly, so i had zero desire to go to the reunion. if i lived in the same town as my HS i may would have gone to the "meet at a bar" portion of the weekend events, but i'm sure that would have been it.
