End of Semester Meme Fun

As of 7:15pm, I am officially done with my Fall 2009 semester. Next semester is Student Teaching and then I’m graduating and shipped off into the big, scary world of “finding a real job.” I wanted to do a college meme, but since I’m not done I found this fun high school meme on a blog and decided to be nostalgic and give you all a glimpse of what I was like in high school. Since I’ll be teaching high school this was especially fun for me. Enjoy!

This is my friend Kelly and I in high school. Please excuse my visor. I got it in SF, wore it throughout my wine country tour, and still have it. I don’t know if Kelly still has her awesome pants, but I sure hope so. Yes, we are still best friends, FYI. I’m aware that I look goofy as hell.

Where did you graduate from and what year?
Hamden High, 2005.

Who was your significant other?
I’m only going to talk about important ones, haha. I guess Stan and his blue hair when I was a freshman/sophomore, and then Keith from then until now. There were some other people in between, but I’m all set with including them. Let’s just say these are the ones I DON’T regret.

Was your Prom a night to remember?
I went to two, Keith’s and mine. Keith’s was cool, but I was sick as hell. Mine was awesome. It involved a sleazy hotel room, dancers, and a graduation party the next morning. My hair was sick.

What was your favorite song you danced to the night of Prom?
I couldn’t tell you what was played. Sinatra was playing during dinner, but we weren’t allowed to dance during dinner.

Do you own all 4 yearbooks?
Yup, I’m spoiled.

What was your favorite movie in high school?
Idle Hands, SLC Punk, Billy Madison…a lot of the same ones I have now, but less zombies.

What radio station did you jam out to in high school?
I didn’t jam…I rocked. RADIO 104. You wouldn’t know how cool 104 really was. I woke up to Dee Snyder’s morning show every day. 420 Brownie, I miss you.

What was your number 1 choice of college in high school?
SCSU, the one I ended up going to. I only applied to one college and hoped for the best. Yay hoping!

Were you involved in any organizations or clubs?
French Club, GSA, and Culinary Arts when I was a senior.

What was your favorite class in high school?
The Restaurant hands down. I loved eating and cooking things. I ate my weight in hash browns, and back then, that was a lot.

Who was your big crush in high school?
I guess who I was dating. OH! And Mr. Sudusky. OMG.

Would you say you’ve changed a lot since highschool?
YES! I’m smarter, skinnier, and stronger. I also use more alliteration.

What do you miss the most about it?
I miss the easiness of it. I always had money back then for the movies.

Your worst memory of HS?
When I got dumped? That was serious business back then. And probably any Math class.

Did you have a car?
My senior year I had a cavalier. But until then Keith drove me to school junior year, and I always made us late. Before that, my Mom would drive me a lot because I never made it to the bus.

What were your school colors?
Green and gold.

Who was your favorite teacher?
Mrs. Frumento. She made me want to become a teacher.

Did you own a cell phone in high school?
Yup, a sick, thick, brick. Complete with blue LCD display.

Did you leave campus for lunch?
We weren’t allowed to, but we did anyway.

If so, where was your favorite place to go eat?
Chili’s…bottomless chips & water all around! And Acrop, which I still eat at quite often.

Were you always late to class?
First period, senior year…more often than not.

Did you ever have to stay for Sat. School?
Nope, I just got suspended. They jumped over Saturday Detention with me.

Did you ever ditch?
Yeah, a lot once I hit senior year. But before that I’d have my Momma call me out. I skipped once to go see “The Passion of Christ.” Good times.

When it comes time for the reunion will you be there?
If I’m not on the West, why not?

  1. Dude, I am totally jackin’ this theme. :)

  2. Hey! I found your siterather randomly through the blogosphere and wanted to comment! First off, I fuckin’ love your current theme. Pink, black, and grey work so well together, and the header’s just brilliant. Simple yet pretty. Awesome. <3

    As for your blog entry, I feel rather left out, as I was homeschooled for the entirety of my childhood, haha. I totally can’t relate to much of anything you’ve written about — Except for the bad fashion sense! You didn’t need to go to school to dress like a goofus in the nineties. It didn’t help that most of my clothing was second hand and much too big for me, either, haha. Oh, man.

    Another thing I wanted to comment on was your Health/Fitness section … I love it! So glad you’re promoting the RIGHT ways to get healthy and/or lose weight. Up until last year I’ve always had problems with this sort of thing … Problems of the eating disorder variety, unfortunately.

    I used to occassionally skip meals to lose weight, it wasn’t a major problem, really … Until those meal skippings completely took over my life and I wasn’t eating or drinking anything for up to three days. Now, looking back at the photos when I was at my lowest weights, I cringe, because I looked so horrible. Sallow, bony, sick, pale, weak. It’s hard to believe that back then I used to cringe when I looked at those same photos, but for a different reason — Because I thought I looked disgustingly fat.

    Anyway, I’m sorry for leaving my entire life story here, haha — I just wanted you to know why I’m so happy you’re promoting good, healthy, normal ways to lose weight! :)

  3. Jackin’ this meme, not theme. LOL.

  4. Oooh! What a fun meme! I think I’ll be borrowing this from you and filling it out in the next few days!

    It’s so fun to look back on old High school days. It’s nice to see how different things were just a few years ago.

  5. I used to skip classes my senior year too, actually I skipped school entirely most days, but it was still a good four years.

  6. I’m stealing this eventually haha ;)

    I love your photo. I can tell you are a lot of fun to chill with.

    I LOVED SLC Punk and Idle Hands (still do)!

  7. I want to quote your post in my blog. It can?
    And you et an account on Twitter?
