7 tips to help you enjoy your class reunion
We all have a golden time in our life: our high school days. That is a beautiful stage in our life when we do what we want. We had a lot of fun with our friends. Those days are unforgettable. If you are having a class reunion, we have some tips to help you reduce your nervousness and anxiety and have fun.
1. Go with a friend
If you are attending the meeting for the first time, we suggest that you go with a friend. This will help you control your nervousness and anxiety.
2. Take a look at your old yearbook.
Before heading down the avenue, it’s a good idea to take a look at your yearbook. This will be even more useful if you’ve almost forgotten the names of most of the friends you had in high school.
Even if you recognize most of them, it will be more difficult for you to remember their names. Therefore, your yearbook will be worth a scan. If you want, you can take the yearbook with you to the party. Other friends who may be going through the same situation will thank you for this favor.
3. Use Facebook
Today, social networking sites like Facebook have done a lot to make meeting experiences that much more enjoyable. If you stay in touch with your high school friends on Facebook, you will see their photos from time to time. This will help you remember their faces and names very well.
4. Be proactive
Once you are there, you don’t sit in one place waiting for others to come to you. You may feel nervous or shy, which is normal. We all go through these kinds of situations. What you need to do is find some familiar faces and start a conversation with them. Your shyness will disappear in a few minutes.
5. Introduce yourself
It is not a good idea to ask someone if they remember you. Sometimes recognizing you won’t be difficult for them, but they won’t be able to remember your name. This can happen to everyone. So what you need to do is say their name before greeting someone. And the best part is that your friends will greatly appreciate it.
6. Forgive everyone
If you run into someone you don’t like or someone who hurt you during your high school days, know that it’s over. Chances are, that friend doesn’t even remember what he did to you. Even if they remember the incident, they may not be happy with what they did. So what you should do is smile and give them a hug.
7. Don’t talk about politics
A high school reunion is not the best time to talk politics. They got together to talk about their great time together in high school. You don’t want to have a heated argument about something you weren’t a part of back then.
So, if you follow the advice given above, you are likely to have a great experience during your high school reunion.
