My medical school didn’t have an official yearbook.
For this reason, one of the students in our class, let’s call her Donna,
decided to lead us in creating a yearbook. We all wanted a yearbook, so
everyone was very eager. I myself dedicated a lot of my time to help
work on the pictures and the design. We also sold advertising space to
local businesses and a lot of people’s family members bought ad space to
congratulate the graduates.
When graduation came, Donna told us that the yearbooks were not ready,
in part because it significant number of people had not paid for them on
time. So she didn’t have enough money and they missed the publishers
Over the next year or two, we got intermittent updates from Donna about
the publishing process and had to keep giving her updated mailing
addresses for when the book was finally ready.
It is now over a decade later, and I still have not received the yearbook that I worked hard on and spent $50 for.
At this point, I’m not going to make a thing of it. Donna is my Facebook
friend, but not actual friend, and I can’t imagine bringing that up to
her. And sadly, I’ve not really kept in touch with any of my med school
friends. So I suppose it’s possible some people did get the yearbook
and it was actually printed. But the last time I asked somebody about
it, which was years after graduation, nobody had.
So I have to wonder, what happened to all the money? I mean, we are
probably talking about $10,000 or so. Where are our yearbooks?? I
don’t even want it that much at this point, but I’m just curious what
