ThrowBack Thursday- My 20 Year High School Reunion is this Weekend

Real Estate Agent with Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - 0480809

I cannot believe it's been more than 20 years since I walked the stage at Moody Coliseum at SMU in Dallas. I'm revealing my age by saying I graduated in May of 1994 from JJ Pearce High School in Richardson TX. (This picture was taken the Summer before Senior year, before I got contacts a couple of weeks later)

I got a lot of slack from friends when I didn't go to the formal night of our 10 year reunion, only the happy hour the night before. I also got a lot of slack when I said I didn't want to go to the 20 year reunion because "I see everyone I want to see on Facebook" to which people told me I couldn't live online and that it was good to see people in person...

Ok, ok, so I bought my ticket... and all week, all I've been hearing from people is they aren't going, they aren't coming into town, they won't be there... Seriously??!!

It looks like I'll be the only one there eating a buffet on Saturday night with all the food to myself! Yum!

Here's a picture with some friends at graduation. I'm on the far right with the red honors chords and frizzy hair as I had just chopped off about 12 inches the day before and I didn't really know what to do with it!! I still talk with 2 of the 4 people below... not bad odds.

Have fun at your reunion Donna. My 35th is coming up next month. Not sure I will be going though.

What I discovered at my 20yr reunion is that I couldn't recognize any of the boys!  At 10 yrs - not much had changed.  At 20 - WOW!  But the girls were easier.  Have fun!

Have fun at your reunion. I've not gone to any of mine and would not recognize a soul, I'm sure.

You haven't changed at all. I'm 37 years out of high school. Wow, how did that happen?

Jim, You look young.

Lynette, The good thing about Facebook is you already get to see most of them and how they've changed!

Daniel, Facebook helps!

Tammie, No way you're out 37 years!

Pfft.  I graduated in 1990, so that makes me even older than you.  I'm okay with it though.  My 25 year reunion is next year and I'm more than happy to go to it.

Have fun. You will definitely see so people and say "Who is that? You have got to be kidding!"

Heh, graduated in 86, so take that Amanda and Jared Christiansen, YOUR Fort Wayne Realtors    Wait, that makes me older....never mind I take it back!

I still live in the town where I graduated HS. I seldom go to the reunions.

I doubt I would go to a 25 year or anything after this one. With Social Media, if I'm not already talking with them, I don't see any point in needing a reunion to bring us together. This will probably be my last one, but no promises...

I didn't go to my 10 year, I may go to my 20 year when it rolls around.  I'm still of the "I talk to/see everyone I want to still" mindset.  We'll see if that changes.  Have fun at yours, hope the turn out turns out well.

I hope the event was fun even without your support group.  You never can tell how reunions are going to turn out, best to just have a back up reason for needing to cut out early!
