Just recently some old high school friends started up a discussion on Facebook to put together for our 15 year reunion. Coincidentally enough, I saw this article pop up: https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/6/15/15757708/hometown-stay-leave Which I found pretty interesting. I don't know if I fully agree with all of their conclusions, but I found it an interesting read. One thing I noticed that they didn't touch upon was the "Big Fish in a Small Pond" effect. There are a number of people I knew in high school that, while a big deal (or relatively big deal anyway) in their teen years, discovered they weren't all that important out in the big wide world and then retreated back to the small pond. Certainly not the case for everyone, but there are definitely a few prominent examples off of the top of my head. Focus: How many of you wound up staying/moving back to your hometown? Would those of you who have moved ever considered moving back? Any interesting examples of people you know who stayed or moved away and then came back? Alt-Focus: I think it's been the requisite year or so since we've had a thread shit talking reunions, so I figured we could do that again easily enough.
