High School Memories Meme

Stolen from Lee who stole it from Dawn. Who wants to thieve it next?

1. Who was your best friend?  I had several.  Calleen of course.  But also S.  Lived with S and that put an end to that a few years later.

2. What sports did you play?  I have the coordination of a rock. None.

3. What kind of car did you drive?  K car.  Can't remember what year. Maybe an 88. It was a hunk of junk but usually got me from point A to point B...except that one time I ended up having to hitchhike. Did not like big hills.  Or anything above 90km/hr.

4. It's Friday night, where were you?  Either working at either Wendy's with the gang or at the movies with everyone else. Or driving around looking for something to do.

5. Were you a party animal?  Went to a lot of parties but didn't really "party" at them if you catch my drift. I was usually the DD.  For the most part I saved my partying for later years.

6. Were you considered a flirt?  I don't think so.  Not then.  Too shy and insecure I think. Still shy although no one believes it, hmph!  Although maybe Melis can say otherwise since she actually went to high school with me.
7. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?  Ha. No! I have even less musical ability than I do coordination.

8. Were you a nerd? More nerdish than actual nerd.  I think I was just generally regarded as a loser.

9. Did you get suspended/expelled? hahahaha no.  They literally gave me master keys to the school on more than one occasion.

10. Can you sing the fight song?  We didn't have one. Hell we didn't even have a cheer.

11. Who was your favorite teacher?  Mr Crane - 11th and 12th grade bio (which I took in 10th and 11th grade respectively).  Mr Crane rocked. (Melis will second me on this one.)
12. What was your school's full name? Yeah, not putting it here.  Initials MRHS.

13. School mascot? Vikings.

14. Did you go to Prom?  Yep.  Certainly was not the time of my life. My date kinda sucked. Not as much as my best friend's date sucked. He made her cry. I threatened to send him back to his home (he was "from away") in a body bag.

15. If you could go back and do it over, would you?  Hell no.

16. What do you remember most about graduation?  Feeling happy. Like my possibilities were endless. Like I was going to accomplish something.  That I had done a good job, that I had done things right.

17. Where were you on senior skip day?  In class. Skipping on that day would have resulted in suspension.  Besides, whenever I wanted to skip I just called my mom or sister and they signed me out of class (Mom, I'm bored and I have no tests, can I leave?)

18. Did you have a job your senior year?  Yep, Wendy's.  Surprisingly good times.  And I still eat there so I think that says a lot.

19. Where did you go most often for lunch? Most days a local bakery my sister worked at.  It was cheaper and healthier than the caf.

20. Have you gained weight since then? Nope, lost.

21. What did you do after graduation? Calleen, S and I ditched our boyfriends (well, C had since dumped her loser prom date, YAY!) and our families, drove to "town" and went out for Chinese food. I had been to the grad party for that last two years anyway, so I knew I wasn't missing much.  I wanted to spend grad night with my friends. Even though S and I aren't friends anymore it was still the right decision. (Y'all thought I partied that night didn't you?)

22. When did you graduate? 1997

23. Who was your Senior prom date? My then boyfriend, H. We did the long distance thing for awhile during first year.  But he was an ass and cheated on me.

24. Are you going to your 10 year reunion? Hell no.

25. Who was your home room teacher?  We were semestered so we had two.  Need to think...I think it was Mr. Lelecher first term and Mr. umm what the hell was his name? Mr MacSomething. McQuaid maybe... (Melis, what the hell was his name? I think you had Econ for homeroom too. I've already packed my yearbooks.)
