    Well, my 10 year class reunion is coming up next month so it made me wonder how long has everyone been out of high school? Would you go back if you could?

    I'll answer your latter question first- I have would not go back to school, even if I could.

    I have been out of school, since I graduated- Class of 1986.

    So, as you can see, I have been out of school for some 20+ years.

    Interesting question to post. Thank you. smile

    this is just a somewhat sneaky way to find out how old we are, isn't it?  well, I refuse to be suckered into it.  not that my age is so important or such a secret - its just the principal of the thing.  and if you wanted to know you could've just asked "how old are you" cuz you all sound like old farts!

      All I'll say is :   Whoa - I've NEVER, EVER, want to go back!!  (and my high-school years were actually pretty good by a lot of people's standards   smile  It's just being that age I'd never want to be again.  )

        I guess I was a bit over the top with that - like anyone really cares that I'm so over the hill, the hill has been washed away by all the water that's gone under the bridge - sigh.  I loved high school, most of it, and would go back there.  I DO go back there in my dreams, but they turn into nightmares where I cannot find the right classroom, or I look down and my skirt is missing!
        hmm

          Oh.... I don't think you were over the top at all.    If it makes you feel any better....      (sings not-so-loudly, and ever-so-melodically) "Slow down, you're movin' too fast. ....   Da da da da, feellin' groovy...."   (Of course, keep in mind I was a few years away from graduation.   hmm  )

    I have forgotten and no I will not go back. I had to walk 10 miles in a blizzard once to get there, I kept going in circles and then my horse spared me. :p

    I graduated in 1998-but u can't tell my age from that date,because I graduated early
    To answer the other question-i graduated early because I hated high school-i would not willingly go back to re-experience that sort of hell again

    About 10 years ago I was invited to the 450th anniversary of my school. I feel like I was a foundation student. I declined the invite (actually I threw it straight in the bin). No I wouldn't go back my education has been so much more enlightening since I left.

    21 years - Class of 1989. I went to a reunion two years ago but didn't really like it much. Mostly the girls all looked the same and the boys, who were very baby faced looking at school, were quite different.  I would NOT want to go back to school - I couldn't think of anything worse.  Not that I had a bad experience or anything, but life moves on and goes forward.

            The truth is, no one knows when middle age comes-- because we don't know how long we will live. I don't think I'm there yet, but I might have just skipped right over it without noticing.
