Embarrassing Yearbooks

Do You Regret Anything You Wrote in Your Yearbook?

The glossy pages of yearbooks are in the air as the end of the school year nears, and I can smell the glue. And the regret. Whatever covertly clever words students submitted months ago will either make their legendary debut or suddenly seem mortifying.

Because high school administrators continue to demonstrate an unhealthy, and really rather embarrassing, interest in what kids write by saying things like "The students, the school, and this community deserve a better yearbook than what I have," it's only natural for kids to push it with elicit innuendos.

Did you write or do (even unsuspectingly) anything that made you want an eraser months later?

Pet Peeves: "cheating EMT's" was one on that list. Too bad that one is my husband now years later.... it is a pet peeve of mine since it was an awful hard time in our relationship, but now I'm reminded of it every time I look at my senior yearbook. No matter how true it is, and my hubby has seen it, but it still brings back the not so fun memories.

I have admitted in a yearbook entry that I forgot the school a classmate was going to even though had told me on more than one occasion.

Nope! I made sure I kept mine neutral about my boyfriend (he's still around so I guess it didn't matter) and everything else, in reference to friends is purely reflective of myself at that age. I was the editor that year though, and know of ALOT of people who had major regret. Mostly in regards to boyfriends/girlfriends, but some towards friendships that went really badly too. Quite a few people came up to me asking if they could change them before it was published, but they'd been submitted at that point and it was too late.

A love note to my then boyfriend in his yearbook. I'm sure it looks like I'm a stalker. He wrote a simple message in mine and I was mad about it then but now I'm glad he didn't go crazy like I did in his.

I don't think I ever wrote anything incriminating in yearbooks. I think I pretty much just wrote about memories we had or the typical, "Good luck, have a great summer, take care" kind of comments. I never wrote "Stay sweet!" though hahahaha

There are comments (like signatures/notes) written by some of my friends that I'd prefer my future kids don't see, or really anyone for that matter, but in terms of what I actually wrote as my grad write-up beside my graduating picture, no I don't regret any of it. Of course I noted friends in there who I am now not close with, but it is 100% representative of the time I spent in highschool and I look back on all of it with fond memories, so I am happy that it reflects where I was at that time in my life.
