Are you going to ACCEPT or REFUSE your Class Reunion?

Did you receive an announcement about your class reunion? Our response may depend upon whether our experiences in school were positive or negative. If you were popular, had lots of friends, then your memories of school days are more likely to bring you a good feeling. If you were unpopular, felt invisible, then the old days are probably not something you like to think about. It may also be affected by how we feel about our current life. Whatever the case maybe are you going to accept or refuse it?

interetsing subject. my classreunion wa just fiew weeks back, and i went. i wasn't the most popular girl in the school or even in the class, but i steel went. it was an inetersting experiance. i got to see people who i haven't mate for 10 year. we exchanged our life experience. i had a good time. i have to say that none of my classmates changed a lot. we all had our problems, gained some weight, aspecially the boys, now men, but in the inside we were the saem people. i would recomend for everyone to go ,even those people who had thw worst time in school, now you going to get the chance to tell those people how succesful you are. it worth it.

i was more like the latter. i was the invisible one, not noticed that much, i wonder if they actually saw me going to school. i felt like i was just floating around in school back then. anyways, in my life, after graduating high school. being the not so famous the person i was, i was stuck at home most of the time. and that was my life most of the time for years. but i did have some or few friends back in high school. but i have not much contact with them after the school was over. so i was not really that close to them. but that is not the story. the real story goes like this, one day when life was so boring, suddenly one old friend who has not appeared or visited my home for years, came by my home, with another old schoolmate, not actually classmate like more a schoolmate, i was shocked . as that schoolmate was my high school crush felt more like my first love actually. LOL. and then they were asking me to go with them as i was invited to go to another schoolmate home who just came back to the philippines from United States where this friend was studying priesthood. and so i didn't come making excuse i was a bit busy and that i will go to them later and that they should go ahead. and so i didn't go there. i missed the chance. i really wanted to come but for some reason i could not open my mouth to say yes and was so tense. and then after two years, there was this reunion organized by the school for our batch only. so this is my chance to see my crush again. but i felt that my crush won't go there. or attend . as this time it was a school reunion not just organized personally by friends. this was organized by school themselves. and between those years when i didn't come to my former classmate house till the time i had received invitation to attend reunion, i was miserable state of life. because i lived in regret for not coming with them in this friend's house. there was this lingering thought that haunt me everyday that i have missed the best thing in my life. i was like thrown into some kind of depression. and then when this reunion was coming near. i received a call from a friend saying i should come and maybe my crush would go there and i could my find and see my crush there and that it is my chance to see if it will happen. and the organizers was pushing me to go also when the organizer called by phone but that organizer called all students of that batch. but it cost about $15 to attend that reunion. as we will be having the reunion in a restaurant with food already included and of course for rentals for the place and etc. i didn't come again. but after that event. the organizer came by my home and show the pictures of that event and i saw my crush attended that event. and i felt so sorry for not attending it again. hmmm. this thing really brings sadness to me every time i remember how i missed a big part of my life for not being able to be with my crush. it is like i was rejecting my crush. even my crush had this sad face when i didn't come when they invited me when they personally visited my home. but as the time they were leaving my home, i felt my heart was being crushed i wanted to say "Stay here, don't go!"

For me it will be very interesting to meet old friends. Whether I'm popular or not, I'll still attend the class reunion, because it is very hard to meet some old friends after school. It will be fun when you get to know how is others now, what they are doing recently. I just miss my class reunion last month because I have some other thing to do. It is quite sad for me, you really have to take a chance when there is an opportunities. Who knows that it will be great experiences for you, never try , never know.

I would feel very torn to receive an announcement for my class reunion. I live many miles and states away from where i graduated high school. I don't see being able to get there as a possibility. I would love the chance to accept and see all of my high school classmates, but i would probably have to refuse because of the distance to travel. If it were within my means to go, i would welcome it.

I didn't like my class so much to come and visit this reunions. another reason is that I'm not in my country for now. On my upcoming hollidays in November I'm planning to visit some of my classmates, those with whom still keep in touch. All of them are livig in different towns by now, so it would be kind of trip around country. maybe in 5 years or so I will consider to come and I hope some of people improved not just outside but inside as well.

Class reunions are definitely exciting, you get to see some old classmates and friends and it's kinda fund. But it depends really on the timing of the date because if its schedule would be on December perhaps a lot of batches can find time to attend but if not then perhaps i wouldn't respond to it either.

I attended my Grade school class reunion three months ago. After 10 years of graduating grade school we finally met each other again. It was a nice pool party and a bunch of reminiscing stories, non stop dancing and drinking. At first I was kinda nervous attending that kind of event because I was an honor student way back then and I thought of them thinking that they expect too much success from me where I feel like I'm not. But then I realized, it's not the reason why I shouldn't be attending. I'm attending because I want to see the people that has been a part of me. There's nothing wrong not attending a reunion but missing this kind of event would leave such a great regrets in your heart someday. ;)

if there's any reunion that will happen i will gladly go there, because its that time of the year where you could see your classmates from high school again, and catch up with things. and you could get to see your friends again, you old enemies, wondering how they have been catching up with them and finally become friends, even though its too late and all but at least you get to be friends after so many years apart. then you could see your old crushes, and those who had crushes to you. All those reliving moments are precious, so if there will be one i will definitely go whatever happens.

I had pondered the same nagging question last last month. I decided to go anyway, and I really had fun! :)) I would've missed so much if I hadn't gone! Plus, it's fun to find out what others are doing right now. :)

yes i will. i know it is where i can see my classmates again, but it is also a time to show what have you become after you graduated. and i am still nobody. so i don't want to be there just to listen to their success. i am just to ashame.
@kd_fmay (555)

I feel the same way. We need to gain more confidence about ourselves even though we feel nobody. I think it's up to us how will they accept us. Thanks for sharing jamed28! :)

My class reunion was back in July, but I didn't go to it. I went to the ten year and that was enough for me. I don't have any intentions on going to the 25th or 30th, or whenever my class decides to have it again. I'm just not interested in going to it.

I have a bunch of reasons not to go. First, I am a poor communicator orally. It would be awkward to go there and not interact with everybody due to my difficulty with speaking. A girl classmate once mentioned 'statue' at me when she saw how rigid my movements were and that I was as silent as the cave walls for her. After so many years I remain the same. The difficulty of life did not improve my condition. Even hope will not help so I figured it would do no good for me to see them again. I'd rather meet them in a less formal manner.

I got an invitation a little while ago about my class reunion, and there's definitely no one there that I really need to see again. There are some people that I'd like to see without having to see everyone that I don't want to see that might show up.

I'd love to go to my class reunion. It's a wonderful experience. meeting the friends with whom one have spent all their childhood is a great feeling. i was not a popular guy in a school. very few persons knew about me or rather i'd say i was almost invisible. but in 2007, I organised our first class reunion after passing out from school. it was great fun. trying to reach masimum number of persons is a great challenge. i was very happy that i was able to invite almost 70% of the class. and at the end of the party, everyone thanked me for my hard work. that was one of the best moments of my life.

I think I will still accept it even if I'm not so popular and nobody seems to notice me because I'm ugly bamboo girl that is full of inferiority complex because not only of my looks but I'm also poor girl wearing old piece of uniform and a pair of borrowed old sneakers. I will accept the reunion because I want to amaze them how I've changed because I'm totally different from the way i was before. Not only for my looks now, but my attitude and perception in life has changed, too. I want also to meet old friends who are as pitiful as me LOL! who also changed their way. Meeting old friends and reminiscing is the most important part, and I'm not ashamed that I was like that before, because if I haven't passed that road in my life, maybe I'm not here today.
