sunday survey

this one's been floating around and I've been feeling left out, so here it is :)
fitting since I'm back in my high school neighborhood right now...

Back in the Day...

1. Did you date someone from your high school?
yes, formally Mike Dellerba briefly during my jr year and Chris Keldsen pretty much my whole sr. year. other randoms in there before that I dated but not dated.

2. What kind of car did you drive?
didn't... we lived down the street from the highschool and all my friends had cars so they carted me around most of the time :)

3. What was the most embarrassing moment of HS?
one afternoon a few of us ended up (obviously were very bored) sitting in a circle punching the person to the right of us in the arm seeing who would quit first. Oh, did I mention it was me and three guys? But I outlasted two of them, finally succuming to the last one. Who happened to be my boyfriend. Oh, did I also mention that I bruise easily? Didn't think twice about it, but woke the next morning with an ugly mammoth bruise on my upper arm. Which I didn't notice until I was already at school and wearing short sleeves. Needless to say, the bruise was ugly. Big and ugly. I had teachers sending me to the office to talk to counselors. Had to explain that YES my boyfriend did it, YES my boyfriend hit me, but NO it wasn't abuse, it was A GAME and NO I will never let it happen again. YES, in hindsight, a STUPID GAME. But honestly it didn't hurt (too much) at the time. And honestly people who bruise easily should not play such games. So poor Chris was grilled and embarrassed (and got kind of a frightening talking-to from my father when he got wind of it). I have to say that's about the most embarrassing thing I remember from high school.

4. Were you a party animal?
um, no. We did hang out till all hours of the night (morning?!), but the group I hung out with consisted of a majority of LDS good guys and gals, so it was a completely innocent hanging out. I went to my first "party" spring break of my sr year and had a shot of root beer schnapps. Woo-hoo!

5. Were you considered a flirt?

6. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?
band (flute) and choir freshman year

7. Were you a nerd?
maybe the first year or two
Wait. Saying i was a flirt and a nerd... isn't that contradictory??

8. Were you on any varsity teams?

9. Did you get suspended/expelled?
no. Well, in-school suspension for skipping school and forging re-admit slips, yes.

10. Can you still sing the fight song?
no, don't think I ever really knew it.

11. Who were your favorite teachers?
Mr. Dellerba, Mr. Kearsley, Mr. Duran

12. Where did you sit during lunch?
in the cafeteria with friends. Or an extended lunch at McDonald's... we had a closed campus but skipped a lot!

13. School mascot?

14. Did you go to homecoming, and with who?
just one year. With Mark Tomseth... from another school, ooh-la-la!

15. If you could go back and do it again, would you?
yes, I LOVED high school! Well, not the school part I guess, considering I was harldy there, but we had great times!!

16. What do you remember most about graduation?
not much about graduation itself... I more remember the last days of school and all the celebration stuff for the srs... having lunch out at pizza with so many great friends all together... and I remember fighting with my boyfriend all day.

17. Where did you go senior skip day?
it happened to be Cinco de Mayo so we went downtown to the celebration/carnival at Riverfront Park.

18. Were you in any clubs?
no. Except for our own Let's Ditch Everything After Lunch and Head Out to the Beach In Your Mom's Prelude club. That met bi-monthly or so.

19. Have you gained some weight since then?
oh, just a tad :)

20. Who was your prom date?
Chris. And even though we dated for almost our entire sr. year, our going to prom together was a last minute long story...

21. Are you planning on going to your 10 year reunion?
done. (five years ago already?!!?)

22. Looking back, what advice would you give yourself?
maybe actually go to class a little more? Be more confident, more outgoing, relax. Oh and little tiny yellow Datsun pick-up trucks?... aren't meant to hold 8 people at once. Especially if it's raining.
