No, I don't think it would be because I felt judged necessarily but because there would be no point. I had no friends and no life other than being in my own head at that period of my life. If I really believed "high school will be the best time of your life" I would have honestly killed myself.
If you've made something of yourself and had good times in high school then I say why not, there will always be people who will condemn and judge no matter what you do.
how about a "I just wouldn't do it" option, I wouldn't go, but it was because I have nothing to remember there, seeing people and their happy lives may make me depressed, and I never really knew that many people anyway, and the ones I do know, 3 of them, I talk to on xbox live so I don't need to go to a reunion to see them, even though I never see them in the first place and just keep it on xbox. Its better to just forget it and hope I can have a new life somewhere else.
i would be anxious about it but I would definitely make the effort to go, I am achieving enough in my life atm to be proud of my achievements amongst others as well and would love to know what others have gotten up to.
I went to the 10 year reunion. It was the same groups hanging out together, the same girls were pregnant and the food was lousy.
I didn't go to the 20, s5 or 30 years. I have little interest in those people anymore.
I would go. Or plan to at least. People didnt like me at school, and dont now. I only left about two years ago, but I see people that are still clearly 'bothered' by me and it just makes me laugh. Other peoples opinions bother me but school people cant hurt me anymore. I have been a bit 'controversial' so people either kiss my *** or hate me. I find it rather amusing so I would go.
20 years isn't far away in my case; it would be 2011 for me.
I had no interaction with these people when I was in HS, so why would I go now to see what they've all done with their life? Which in every case, would be more than I have.
The only thing I have going for me is I'm not the weirded member of the class of 1991. Back in 1993 one of my former classmates (who seemed mildly retarded -- though I'm not sure what his issue was) gunned down the principal of our former HS. He was nutty enough that I could immediately guess who did it even before his name was released on the news.
Thanks to him I can't rank any worse than 2nd place for most odd.
