10 Reasons Why I Didn't Go To My High School Reunion

10. I don't have much Success to flaunt- aside from my never ending college career.
9. I didn't even like high school- Why would I want to go relive it?
8. I never got an official invite.
7. I would have had to PAY to go.
6. Being grossed out thoroughly by lame displays of affection whether it be genuine or fake-There are reasons why I haven't talked to anyone in X number of years. I keep in touch with the people I want to keep in touch with.
5. People still aren't over their cliques, jealousies, successes, failures, envies -- and will never just be people who shared a formative time in their lives.
4. I would rather poke my eyes out than see any old flame I might held for someone back when I had horrible judgement and no esteem.
3. I don't care to see how the hot girls/guys have let themselves go- life happens. If you are happy, who cares what you look like.
2. It's 3 hours of my life I can never get back.
1.Gross superficial Chit Chat- I would say over and over with a plastered smile, "Oh WOW, that's so great you're married and or pregnant again. Your life is so fascinating." And I can't imagine a bigger waste of energy.

Maybe these are my own issues but the truth is I just have no desire to (keyword here) reconnect with old associates from High School- or anyone I might have purposefully let go. It's in the past.

I'd rather do something more interesting about my future.

You make me laugh....

I have to admit, my 5 year reunion was a total bust. (not to mention that my husband at the time was completely high) Same old stuff...same people thinking they are better than everyone else.

Went to my 10 was even MORE lame (if that is possible).

I may THINK about going to my 20th...but if thinking does me any good, I will decline. Besides, I already keep in contact with the people from high school that really mattered to me.

Oh, and just for the record...success is measured by the individual. For what it's worth, you are awesome in my eyes.

Wow, a nice cynical post! It makes me lol.

Sucks that your High School blows though. I had it lucky, my tiny hick school class got along pretty well.
