why facebook is weirding me out

because i just realized yesterday that everyone and their dog from high school is on the damn thing.

and their friend's list reads like our high school yearbook. it's like 95% high school people, 5% relatives/others. it's weird.

a shitload of people from high school married eachother. i mean, A LOT. not necessarily people from the same graduating class, but still- it's like the school met up and coupled out.

everyone is totally still in eachother's lives. i get the impression that they talk daily and hang out often. i think i've kept in touch with 2 people since high school. and really, that's pushing it since i can only think of 1 that i truly kept in touch with since graduation day.

all the chicks from high school? they look fucking hot. even 2 and 3 kids later, they are all freaking gorgeous. (please note, this is not one of the things weirding me out, but it had to be mentioned cause it's awesome)

Everyone from my high school is on there too. It's been fun however, to reconnect with them.

I love it. LOVE. And to tell you a specific reason would hijack your entire comment thread.

Hardly anyone I know from HS is on facebook. Okay there are 40 from a class of 400 but only one of them am I friends with. The people I'd like to connect with aren't on there. Go figure. My husband has more friends on facebook from my HS than I do and he didn't even go to my school. He was a band geek and in a Drum and Bugle Corp that were mostly from my school. He has more fun at my reunions than I do. I figure the next one, he can go to it and let me know how it went.

I agree that Facebook can freak me out.... I moved far away from my highschool city and it's weird to see people who still live there, and will live there their whole lives...

Yup, you guessed it. I still hang out and talk with most of the peeps from HS... only because we are all here in Simi Valley still, Miss Nor Cal!!!

And I do think it quite odd that most of our class is either married or dating those from the 89 class. WTF??!!

Yes... I'm guilty of this as well.

Andie said...

there are a ton of people from HS and college on there for me!

it's crazy!

you wanna be facebook friends, ster? ;)

Agree. Facebook is effing weird, man. It's like, Sure, I'll be "friends" with you but do I seriously need to know ALL of your comings and goings (via the Status line)? I haven't even thought about you since HS... and yet I now know that you stay home from work one day per month with "horrible menstrual cramps."

Wow.

The HS friends have just started coming out of the proverbial FB woodwork for me as well. Like you, I'm amazed at how many of them have kept in touch. Frankly, that sounds like too much work for me. I'm thinking that once every 10-20 years is working just fine for me.

just want to be clear that anon is NOT talking about me. i don't stay home with cramps. LOL

beth said...

Jarrard said...

I feel like I could have written this post. I totally get what you are saying and realized that I have kept in touch with one person and she is still my best friend after 22 years.
I agree with the Crackbook comment, but Stephanie Meyer has become my crack dealer - sweet mother that Edward Cullen can join my FB friends list anytime!!!
