You still exist! Hello and welcome back!

There was a forum makeover recently.

Hi!  It's nice to see a familiar face :)

The site looks nice.

So I ended up kinda sorta organising our high school class reunion after not having seen most of the people for 8 years. :eek:

What the hell am I doing with my life?

We didn't even have one since we ended high school. I do want to see most of the people and hear what they are up to.

Of course it is much easier if somebody else organises it.

But then, all I did was make a fb event just to figure out how many people we can reach. I don't have many contact info. :leaving:

Why wouldn't you attend?

Also, this new forum really has an odd choice of ads it displays. :lol: Now I see three ads for something which looks like a movie called "Tammy."

Tammy is probably a pretty bad movie, well I don't like most of the things that pass as comedies these days, but I find it amusing that those ads are coming up!

Morning :), I hope you all are having a nice start to the weekend.

Mine isn’t the best so far, I was meant to be going out to see a couple of friends last night,my partner was looking after mini Sith, I was literally ready and about to leave and it got cancelled last minute, it was something I was looking forward to all week :(. Anyway a new day and I’m feeling much more positive, we are going on a day out in the countryside, a nice walk, some fresh air and hopefully a nice lunch in a country pub :D.

Things will get interesting when people respond and you’ll have to find a date and a venue, agreeable for all 20-25 people in terms of location, budget and general taste. Or when they start taking offense if the date or venue doesn’t suit them, and get mad at each other for attending/not attending/joining or quitting the group chat/canceling, and fight over menu options. And when the day comes sit down and chat in the exact same old cliques they lived in during high school and you realize  that there’s essentially no news you haven’t seen on Facebook already and very little happens to 21st century people between the ages of 18-23 and 5 years isn’t enough to erase judgements, peer pressure and old grudges. 

I guess that answered your question :lol: but that’s my high school reunion experience, I’m sure it’s actually possible to make it work and have a nice time. Maybe 10 years is enough to mature people.

I’m sorry your evening was cancelled but today sounds like a lot of fun. Especially the fresh air and the pub lunch. :leaving: 

it’s disgustingly hot in the city and it’s rather depressing to know that I’ll be working all damn summer. I should book a spa retreat at least, or something.

Yeaaaaah ... I posted a doodle calendar with some date options and the date most people click, that will be it. If you don't respond, you have no right to complain after. If you want to see people, you will make time. Or suggest a meetup yourself.

Location is trickier indeed, but I really don't have the intention to figure our menus and budgets and such nonsense. I am pretty sure we will just meet at a café, everybody gets coffee or whatever they want and pay as they leave. End of story.

No real experience with reunions here, but as I said, I actually want to talk to some people again. And no, facebook doesn't really tell me much at all.

What is a Star Wars movie without Jedis, lightsabers, and the Force?

We had a doodle too, people still got mad. But this all depends on the individuals so I’m sure high school reunions can be organized in a pleasant way too. As I’m sure more happens in 10 years than 5, so there’s that too. This was just my experience and as a result, I’ll be skipping the 10-year one. I’ll maybe check out the next.

So shoot me, I actually thought Solo was alright :P I went in very low expectations and got an unambitious but perfectly enjoyable origin story.

I was very surprised by that cameo at the end though. Wonder why they chose that character.

I totally missed that one, only realized there was a cameo after I got home from the movies and read a couple reviews online.

Who would you have chosen instead to fill that function in the story?

The top half of Darth Maul. It would be nice to see his legs show up in the Kenobi film to kick Obi-wan's ass... :D
