My High School didn't have a yearbook. I graduated in 1981, and it seems like a lifetime ago. After a couple of years in the Army, then working different jobs after my discharge, followed by college, then my current job, it seems sooooo long ago.
I did, however, find a couple of high school crushes in recent years, thru Classmates.com. They're all married, kids, etc. now.

I graduated in 2004, but still live in my small hometown.

I rarely look through them. The people that I still want to talk have my contact information. Some I still talk to almost weekly. Others are on my Facebook and we talk occasionally.

I had probably half the class on my Facebook, but kicked most of them off. I don't need to know about someone's drug problems or what someone is up to that I might have ten minutes worth of interaction with fifteen years ago.

Once in a while I have. I just realized that my 25th year class reunion will be next year if they have one.

I knew there was a reason why I have been hitting the gym.

I put all my yearbooks away some where.


I go on facebook to keep up with a few people. The ones who were nice and decent. I have no interest in what the popular jerks are doing with their lives right now. Probably still reminiscing about their Glory Days in high school when everyone worshipped them.

Hardly at all and it is probably due that back in Mr. Schultz's time, that is all we really had. In our time, we have Facebook.

When people asked me to sign their yearbooks, I'd print my full name in small font in the upper left corner of the inside cover of the book...this was typically the space where people would write their own names on their copy of the yearbook. This practice was completely in line with the probably insufferably sarcastic personality I had at the time

I rarely look at mine. I go for years without thinking to look at them. Usually it's every several years after a major move and I find the box in which they are stored.

I was the Yearbook photographer so most of the photos in those were mine. The Xwife threw my Yearbooks away said they were a waste of time. I wish I could look through them again.

I hated high school.. I even burned the yearbook. I want no memories of my high school years cause they were pure hell for me.
