Default What some of my classmates ended up doing...

What do you think are the keys to success? Of course, what is success? I know of several classmates who have done pretty well, (millionaires +) financially, and with professional careers, doctors, lawyers, professors...

And some have raised families, been on adventures around the world.

So, I wondered WHO lived up to their HIGH school futures, you know where they predict what people will do sort of thing. Did the guys who were voted most likely to succeed, succeed? And what does that mean to them.
Hi Gordon,

Sounds fascinating!

I admit to sometimes Googling my old school classmates... One guy - who was a "tough kid" at a school I went to in Australia - dropped out of school. Then he became a butcher. Then he went to jail (not sure what for). His Twitter handle is "@felonXXXXX" (I've purposely left out the "X" parts). He's out of jail now - but I have no plans to contact him... (We were never friends, but we were never enemies either.)

A school friend of mine (from another school I went to) became a playwright and play director - though he couldn't do it full time. He won the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award a few years ago for one of the plays he directed... (We got back in touch and rekindled our friendship!)

Another girl I knew at school ended up winning the Ms Natural Olympia world title (a natural, drug-free body building competition). Amazing! (Not in touch with her at present, though...)

Another girl I knew from school ended up becoming a full time screever - that's a chalk pavement artist. She does commissioned works, and also does various festivals... (We're still in touch...)

I ended up going to 3 elementary schools, and 3 high schools...! (My family moved around a lot.)

Of course, some people avoid reunions for this reason - they're worried about the comparison. Of course, when you've done dozens of different things (like many on this forum), you can just pick the one or two you want to talk about, so it's not an issue...!

Looking forward to your update!

Best wishes,

Dien
