High School Meme

I have seen this High School meme at It Coulda' Been Worse, Musings of a Housewife, and at Mindless Chatter of a Busy Mom. All three invited everyone to play along. It seems like fun, so I decided to go ahead and do it.

1. Who was your best friend? Patti- we still keep in touch today although neither of us writes as often as we should. I'm also responsible for getting Patti addicted to blogs. So far she only reads but I know one day I will convince her to start her own!

2. Did you play any sports? Ha! One time I joined the track team because you didn't have to try out. Funny thing was the coach actually expected me to run. So, eventually he told me it would be better if I were no longer on the team.

3. What kind of car did you drive? I didn't drive until I was out of high school. I had friends who could drive- what did I need to get my license for?

4. It’s Friday night. Where were you? Hanging out with friends. Bowling, skating, eating, football games, basketball games, or just at a friends house.

5. Were you a party animal? Nope

6. Were you considered a flirt? Yup

7. Were you in the band, orchestra or choir? Choir

8. Were you a nerd? Nope

9. Were you ever suspended or expelled? No, although I did have detention and in-school suspension.

10. Can you sing the fight song? What's a fight song? Apparently I can not sing it since I didn't even know there was such a thing as a fight song.

11. Favorite teacher? Probably my calculus teacher.

12. What was your school mascot? A golden bear

13. Did you go to the Prom? Yup and I ended up marrying my date!

14. If you could go back, would you? I love my life now, but I loved high school too. I loved being with my friends all the time. Now that I look back I realize I basically had no responsibilities and that was certainly nice. So, I would love to go back and have some more carefree days spent worrying about boys and what to wear!

15. What do you remember most about graduation? It was hot. The ceremony was long and boring. We smiled for lots of pictures and gave lots of hugs. I also remember one of my closest friends Renuka, who had moved far away after 11th grade, was able to come for the ceremony.

16. Where were you on Senior Skip Day? At school. Apparently word got out of the plans of our senior skip day. We were threatened that if we skipped our class trip would be canceled.

17. Did you have a job your senior year? One day a week I cleaned the home of a family friend. I also babysat.

18. Where did you go most often for lunch? A local pizza place or Subway.

19. Have you gained weight since then? Considering I barely weighed 100 pounds and wore a size zero in high school, I have to say that yes I have gained weight!

20. What did you do after graduation? That day? There were lots of fun parties afterwards. One funny memory took place at my friend Sheli's house where Rich threw Patti (totally clothed) into the pool. I'm sure Patti is smiling fondly at that memory! If the questions means- what did I do after that day was over- I spent a year working full time at a day care center and part time as a cashier at CVS. Then I went to college.

21. What year did you graduate? 1995.

22. Who was your Senior Prom Date? Rich

23. Are you going/did you go to your 10 year reunion? Nope. Maybe I'll go to the next one. We'll see!

If you haven't done this one yet, play along! Leave me a comment if you play along so I can read yours!

Ah yes, high school was fun times! Are there really many people at all who have not gained weight since those days???? I can remember saying over and over to friends then how bad I needed to diet becuase I was 109 pounds! I probably messed up my metabolism back then making it hard to diet now! lol Oh well!
Loved your memories! Thanks for sharing!

I enjoyed reading this--it's great that you had a good time in highschool. I did until 12th grade, that was the year from you know where for me. I wouldn't want to go back--oh, I've gained weight too. I can't believe there are actually people who haven't.

I did this on my blog and I linked to yours. It was fun. I also remember thinking that I needed to lose weight in high school -- I'd kill to be able to fit into my highschool jeans again!!!!
