Recently, on Facebook I joined a page for my senior school. Now I find my ‘year’ has organised a reunion in August. I could easily get there. It is 45 years since we began our journey, aged 11. Now, I’m just considering whether to go – or not. What would you do? If you would go – why?
It’s in Brighton, at the Marina for those who know it. And it’s just a ‘drop in for as long as you want to’ event, so easy enough for me to get to, and I’ve had some private messages suggesting people actually want me to go! I am amazed at this, because I find it hard to believe anyone actually remembers me, and very hard to believe it matters to someone if I’m there or not.
I guess because I’m asking this, I want encouragement to get there. But why? I only had one ‘friend’ at that school, and I still see her regularly, we’re best friends. She won’t come, it’s her ‘worst nightmare’. But I’m just curious … and I’m wondering why?
What do you think? Have you been to a school reunion? If it’s just a time to show off, I’m not interested. But it it’s not that, then why go? What will we spend the time talking about?
let me know what you think. Is it a good idea to go?
