High School

I have seen this floating around blogland and thought it looked like fun so I figured I would answer too:-) Really I am just stalling because I am tired and don't want to do anything.

This was my highschool. It looked like a huge tin can and was so LOUD when it rained. The school closed in the late 80's and now it is just a gym. I think they use the old classrooms for the AWANA classes now.

1. Who was your best friend?
Her name was Dawn and we did everything together. She was such an amazing person and grew up to be just as amazing as an adult. She teaches high school math and lives in Florida with her dh and two boys. Oh and she could play the piano!!! She was the pianist at our church at 16 yo and was just amazing. I spent many nights sitting on the floor listening to her practice. I think I will call her when I finish this:-)

2. Did you play any sports?

I sure did! I played basketball and volleyball in highschool. I was also a cheerleader but that really isn't a sport:-)

3. What kind of car did you drive?

This one:-) This was actually the first of 5 Hondas we have owned. I LOVE HONDAS! This was an 81 Honda Civic that I kept until we traded it for a 1990 Honda Civic. I loved this car. I even learned how to change oil and brake pads on this car lol For those who live in Winn Dixie country if you look closely I am wearing the old polyester blue and white uniform from 20 years ago. OH MY WORD that thing was HOT!
4. It’s Friday night. Where were you?

If I wasn't at work I am sure I was either playing in a sport or cheering for one OR at church.

5. Were you a party animal?

NOT EVEN CLOSE! I was Miss Goody Two Shoes. This picture probably tells the story for you

Yes I am standing at a pulpit in front of the church lol I was voted Most Christian Leadership.

6. Were you considered a flirt?

Probably just the opposite.

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

I sang in choir for 3 yrs even though I can't sing:-) I still tried to make a joyful noise.

8. Were you a nerd?
I don't think so but if I was it doesn't bother me..it still wouldn't;-) I never fit into just ONE group because I played sports, cheered and made good grades so I was just friends with everyone. I still don't like cliques and I try to go out of my way to include those who are "different"..I totally respect when someone has their own opinions and stands up for what they believe in rather than go with the crowd.

9. Were you ever suspended or expelled?

In high school? NO;-)
I was suspended in the 6th grade because I was a bully. I know that is hard to believe for those who know me now BUT before I was saved at 12 I was quite the bully in school...I wasn't at home but only because my older sister was MY bully. I actually called the girl I tortured in school back in 1993 after watching a show about how a bully ruined this one persons life. I called her and apologized profusely for the things I did and she just laughed and said it wasn't that bad. It took me a long time to get over that. Now I am the opposite because I have a hard time standing up for myself.

10. Can you sing the fight song?

We didn't have one lol

11. Who was your favorite teacher?

Wow I have sat here and really thought about this and I didn't have one. I guess if I had to pick I would say Mrs Peterson

12. What was your school mascot?

13. Did you go to the Prom?

Dancing was "of the devil" so we didn't have one;-) FTR I don't believe that now.

14. If you could go back, would you?


15. What do you remember most about graduation?

Honestly this will sound silly but I was worried about all the partying that was going on after. Everyone booked some hotels at the beach and they were planning a huge drinking party...the parents knew but I was concerned about the things that could happen with all the alcohol...ok maybe I was a nerd lol
16. Where were you on Senior Skip Day?
We didn't have one...I couldn't skip anyway because I was too busy and didn't have time. I worked in the school office so missing school meant missing work too...I couldn't afford that;-)

17. Did you have a job your senior year?

I worked in the office at school and at Winn Dixie after school. I had to pay rent somehow and I do know we are still talking high school:-/

18. Where did you go most often for lunch?

The Sheik. I loved their steak in a sack with grilled onions and extra mayo. Plus that had that ice like Sonic does to go with the best cherry limeades. I know this has nothing to do with this but they were so good that when I was pregnant with my oldest and we lived in West Palm Beach I drove almost 5hours for one. I had issues

19. Have you gained weight since then?
ROFL! I was 87lbs when I got married. I NEEDED to gain weight...maybe not as much as I have but I don't ever want to be that skinny again.

20. What did you do after graduation?
I went home and prayed for those at the beach party. I truly was concerned and I do know that sounds pathetic but I was. I also went to Dairy Queen for a foot long chili dog.

21. What year did you graduate?


22. Who was your Senior Prom Date?

See #13

23. Are you going/did you go to your 10 year reunion?

The school closed and nobody planned one for the 10 or the 20th. Before I moved I still saw most of the people I graduated with so I already know what everyone is up too.

Quiet and shy? Really?
Umm Paul I don't think quiet is a word that could ever be used to describe me lol I can be shy but usually only for a few minutes when I meet someone for the first time....that doesn't usually last long either. I AM a talker;-)

paul said...

Ok, I'll concede on the "quiet." I believe you!

You have a lot going for you. You are going to be fine, just fine!

That's cool . . . ahhhh . . . the memories . . . everything in my HS ended up in hotel rooms on the beach, too . . . very sick stories came out every Monday . . . kept me very pure and very far from all alcohol!!! I did NOT want to wake up next to someone and not know or remember ... and I did NOT want to end up puking in someones car or parking lot or on the beach or over the balcony of the hotel room on the beach ... and I did NOT want to end up jumping off the balcony of the hotel room on the beach ... and I did NOT want to get stopped by any cops who most all knew my dad b/c he was/is an insurance salesman who had a LOT of clients on the beach!!!!!!!
