Do you ever join class reunions?

For some reasons, I haven't joined one. I'd love to meet my old classmates and laugh at how 'big' we've become over the years. There's this bully boy who made my elementary school days miserable whom I want to kick now but he's already a priest. I'd go straight to hell if I ever touch his priestly bully face. Anyhow, my batchmates from my elementary school held a class reunion a few weeks ago. Facebook updated me with the photos they uploaded and yeah, they aren't cute anymore. I couldn't even recognize a few. Where have all the years gone by? Then yesterday, one of my friends from the same elementary school announced that she's getting married. I asked who the lucky groom is and she said, "Your seatmate in fifth grade." And I was like, "Really?", thinking long and hard who my 5th grade seatmate was. Then my brain started to register a familiar face of a young, thin boy along with memories of him copying my homework. But of course I didn't say that. Instead I asked, too eagerly and intrudingly, I'm afraid, "When did you become a couple?" She's cool enough to say, "After the class reunion." There you have it. A grand finale. Whoever said class reunions are terrible? Lol

We have never had one as far as I know. I tried to organize one but could locate only a few classmates and they were far away and so met up for coffee with only one.

I would love to meet my former class mates and just know how their fairing on. Sometime it is a challenge meeting a former classmate who has made it in life while we are struggling to make it.

@sol_cee Because Sherlocked I live far away and do not travel back to the United States. I do not miss it and do not miss the people I went to school with.

@sol_cee it was nice. the college reunion was last year. i did not attend that one. i even made a discussion about this:
This Saturday is the date of the grand reunion of the graduates of Nursing from 1978 to 1983. It is in line with our foundation day (St. Paul’s day) on January...

Never been to one though I've been invited several times. The schedule just don't match with mine. I can't imagine you being bullied. I was never bullied back in the school days and I've never bullied anybody.

@sol_cee I think they were threatened by you, that's why they did that. You're no meek.

I haven't attended any class reunion yet. Too busy or too something always... Like you, I don't often recognize faces from photos. But if those strangers said they knew me, then I must have known them too once upon a time.

Our school year gets together every year or so. Some of the people I don't recognise at all. It's a bit eerie when they look totally different.
