Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 🙂
Rob and I are saving our V-Day dinner for this weekend (Trader Vic’s, yay!) so we just grabbed Indian food for dinner and had a nice, relaxing night at home. Hope you all had a great day filled with lots of love, cheer, and of course, chocolate.
Anyway, a high school meme snagged from Sarah…
My senior year was 1996-1997.
1. Who was your best friend?
Carmen and Robyn. And they still are. (*waves*)
2. What sports did you play?
BWAH! I’m horrible at sports. In high school, I took dance to fulfill my physical education requirement. I wanted to avoid running track, playing volleyball, etc. But I was a songleader! That’s kind of athletic. Maybe.
3. What kind of car did you drive?
I didn’t get my license until last year so, yeah. No car in high school.
4. It’s Friday night, where were you?
Probably at one of my best friends’ houses. We rotated where we spent our Friday nights. We would rent movies, or go to the mall, or bake. If there was a dance or a game at school, we’d sometimes end up there.
5. Were you a party animal?
Nope. Plus, my dad was strict.
6. Were you in the “In Crowd”?
No. I guess you could say I was a “floater.” I had friends from the different cliques.
7. Ever skip school?
No. My dad would have killed me.
8. Ever smoke?
Never tried it. It just doesn’t appeal to me.
9. Were you a nerd?
I guess so. I went to a magnet high school so *everyone* was a nerd. And we were proud of it. 😀
10. Did you get suspended/expelled?
Noooo way. Again, see above comments on my dad.
11. Can you sing the Alma Mater?
Is it sad that I still remember it? And can recite the whole thing? I was a songleader, though. That’s my excuse. We had to sing the alma mater at all our games.
12. Who was your favorite teacher?
I have three…
— Mr. Bohannon who taught AP US History — he wasn’t necessarily the greatest teacher ever but he did know how to prepare his students for the AP test
— Mr. Kelly who taught Algebra II — he was totally easygoing and fun
— Mrs. Shoop who taught Spanish III and English IV — she wasn’t a popular teacher because she ran a tight ship and expected a lot from her students but looking back, she really challenged me and I appreciate that.
13. Favorite Class?
Spanish (all levels) and US History.
14. What was your school’s full name?
Gretchen Whitney High School
15. School Mascot?
16. Did you go to Prom?
Yes. But I went to both my Junior and Senior proms with my evil ex-boyfriend. I had a great time at both events but I kinda wish my memories were with someone else. :/
17. If you could go back and do it over, would you?
I don’t think so. I think as far as high school experiences go, it was a good one.
18. What do you remember most about graduation?
It was a blur so I don’t remember much from the ceremony at all. I do remember being overly concerned about that silly cap pushing my bangs down and giving me “hat-head.”
19. Favorite memory of your Senior Year?
Being on the Homecoming Court. That was such a great honor and I had a blast participating in the pep rally and all the events leading up to the game. Also getting my acceptance letter to UC Berkeley.
20. Were you ever posted up on the senior wall?
Uhhh, I don’t think we had one of those.
21. Did you have a job your senior year?
22. Who did you date?
I had 2 boyfriends in high school. Neither are worth mentioning here.
23. Where did you go most often for lunch?
Nowhere. My school didn’t have an “open lunch” policy. I usually just stayed at school and brought Cup O’ Noodles from home. What a horrible lunch, lol.
24. Have you gained weight since then?
YES. Please don’t remind me.
25. What did you do after graduation?
I went to Europe with my dad, then spent the summer hanging out with friends before moving to Northern CA for college.
It was kinda fun looking back at high school… 🙂
