Why the big investment into an event with people you'll probably never see again once you leave high school?
The other day while going through some things I came across my high school year books.
I looked at my senior year, and saw that I had no memory of many of the people, and when I would try to name people I recognized, I couldn't even come up with their names.
High school was just a conduit to me that I had to go through to move on into real life. College was the same way. I remember a few people from college days, but never communicated with any exept one after graduation.
I know that sounds unbelievable to someone in high school, because that is their entire life. Looking back that period was so small and insignificant.
