IM LOOKING ON FACEBOOK AND I KEEP IN TOUCH WITH A COUPLE OF FOLKS THAT I GREW UP WITH AND WENT TO SCHOOL WITH. WE TALK ABOUT PEOPLE THAT WE SEE FROM OUR H.S. DAYS AND ITS AMAZING HOW THEY GREW UP TO BE.

SOME OF THE SMARTEST PEOPLE IN H.S. GREW UP AND AINT DOING 🤬 ! 85% OF THE GIRLS ARE 2-3X THEIR H.S. WEIGHT AND THE DUDES ARE JUST "WORKING" IT'S KINDA SAD THAT PEOPLE JUST LET YEARS PASS AND DONT DO ANYTHING TO BETTER THEIR LIVES

    I'm doing better than most of the black people I went to high school with, it looks like im the only one with a legitimate shot to be rich. Im the only one making moves in AND outside of the classroom. Most of my classmates are now STILL living at home and are working full-time minimum wage jobs and they arent in college. A lot of them are having kids already and are really 🤬 themselves up for their financial futures, I feel bad for em...

    4 of em died so I'm doing better by default.

    I'm doing better than a lot of people I grew up around but as far as school goes, I'm doing well.

    Majority is mostly fat and yes including the guys or fatter, some are doing decent and to very good. The ones doing poorly I don't know. So I'm 28 now and doing pretty well for myself. So I guess we'll see.

    I don't talk to anyone from when I was younger.
  • VIBEVIBE Members Posts: 54,384 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I know a few who have done time for robbery or 🤬 , murder and I know some who have died.

    Crazy when you reflect on the who's because some of them are surprising.

    I think I'm average. My high school valedictorian still mystifies me though. he went to vanderbuilt and graduated with honors in chemical engineering, then graduated from harvard law school, and he gets out of the seminary as a catholic priest next year. Saying he was the tokken black in high school is an understatement. The white girl that finished salutatorian got a full ride to Dartmouth but turned it down and went to the local college because she couldn't be away from her parents. I think she's teaching at the highschool now. The blacks from my highschool generally do really really really well. My friend is an electrical engineer for Ratheon that has multiple satellites that he was the lead on the project in space right now, one home girl is a pharmacy tech in florida and My home girl flips houses all over dfw.

    Most of them seem happy with life.

    So that means they are doing well.

    'Winning' is all I have to say about my situation to a lot of my fellow classmates. Out of my circle of friends with the exception if 1 I make more than all of them(although fortunately none of us are struggling). Also I'm one of the only two to not have kids out of all of us(even though everyone predicted my mannish ass to have em first).

    The rest of those 🤬 I went to high school with I kind of laugh at them. I told them not to take out those expensive school loans for college, they told me I was stupid. Now their credit is 🤬 for life, while I'm about to buy myself a bomb ass spot out in Frisco in about six months with no co-signer.
