RE: What happened to the people you grew up with?
I'm still in contact with most of my friends that still in the city. We're not as close as we used to be, but still talk.

For example, I have know this girl ever since I've known my self.

Couple of buddies went into the military, went to the middle east, and didn't come back the same people.

As far as I am aware, no one has made any major news for doing anything really good or really bad among my childhood cohorts.

There are a couple of buddies from high school who I never hung out with much that, thanks to Facebook, I really wish I had. And, also thanks to Facebook, I have come to realize that the people I did hang out with the most are the ones I'd rather not interact with today. Funny how time can provide that perspective.

Same here. Same old groups hang together. I never was a joiner in high school. Went back (left there over 35 years ago) a couple of times. Very depressing trips.

We even had some contact when I was in graduate school and even when I started my career in academics. After that, we lost contact, but I always thought that we would reconnect and reengage where we left off. Well, my mom went to his father's funeral and asked about my friend and was informed that he was in jail. A google search indicated that he had two convictions, one for child pornography and another for soliciting sex from a minor (he was caught in a sting operation). To say I was shocked would be an understatement.

I know the feeling...

One of my old motorcycle riding partners (and I do mean old -- he was in his 70's) knocked up his girlfriends granddaughter who was living with them... She was 13.... She turned him in when she got an abortion. The woman at the clinic who notified police was a mutual friend...... She was thunderstruck.....


It's like WTF were you THINKING, dude?????

He did 12 years...

He's out now -- nobody's seen him...

Nobody wants to...

Yeah, it's like my friend had kids. They must have been devastated along with his mom and dad whom I remember fondly. WTF. How to ruin your life and everyone's around you...

My two best buds in HS: One got pinched for stealing a car, went to jail, promised restitution, got released, and promptly left the state. Haven't seen him in decades. The other got saved in a big way, and now lives in Washington state, works as a carpenter (snork).

The two people voted most likely to succeed, didn't.

Who says I grew up ? Weeping

Mostly they are still around ... my besties from High School I still talk to, some I see, the one time I go to church on Christmas Eve witn me mum.

Some of them I see at Cal Tech or up in LA now and then.

RE: What happened to the people you grew up with?
Actually there was a girl I pined after in church and HS whom I know I scared the crap out of being all hormonal and emotional stupidly thinking if I just said I liked her enough she would like me. I would like to find her, unlikely, but if I ever did I would like to tell her I was sorry. Hormones really fuck your reality up.

I still have some contact with old school friends. One did time for molesting his 9 year old step daughter. He's back on the streets but keeps a very low profile. I saw him recently and totally blanked him.

A few died, some had kids. Purposely didn't keep track of most of them. I've met a few who say they knew me, but I don't remember them (memory loss from trauma).

RE: What happened to the people you grew up with?
I'm still in touch with a fair few from High School but they're more acquaintances than friends. Uni friends are closer. Couple have died. None done anything hectic that I know of. One uni acquaintance is super duper successful - literally making millions. But I never really liked him that much... Plenty of them have had kids - like, nearly all of them Confused I don't think I'd have granted any of them a reproduction licence but no one asked me.
