High School Memories

I thought this would be fun. I've listed a few things about me from high school. I loved going to school, it was my sanctuary. I was a sponge, I still am. I loved learning!
 
I'm hoping you will list a few things you remember from high school too.
Okay here goes....

 I didn't belong to any one particular group of friends. I was friends with everyone. The brains, the jocks, the parking lot crew, the quiet ones, the loud ones, the artists and the theater crowd.

 I took college courses while in high school.

 I created artwork for the school magazine.

 I never bought lunch from the cafeteria.

 I used to speak French, Spanish and Turkish

 I loved classic films and jazz music


I  took extra credit courses during the summer. One year I spent three weeks recording deer droppings for the wildlife resources department!



Yes that's my high school graduation photo! Okay now its your turn!

Beautiful photo and see, I was right, you ARE clever. Unfortunately, I don't look back on my school days so fondly, and find that I have learnt much more since leaving school than I ever did in it!!

High school was okay for me. I was mostly a wallflower.

Fun post! I enjoyed learning more about you! There would be NO WAY I would post my high school picture. Yours is lovely though!

Nice photo. It looks familiar. I graduated around the same time! I was on the basketball team, in the honor society, and took nursing. I also was in with the popular crowd, even though I didn't do a lot of the things, or go a lot of the places they did. I 'had it like that'....personality! LOL Although the first part of High School I spent looking at my shoes...deathly shy!...Great post!

Guess this means you've "always" had it "goin' on". I'm not the least bit familiar with that. LOL!

No doubt why the popular guys were asking you out Katie. You were and still are a beautiful woman with a very lucky husband. I also enjoyed the post from back in 09.
Like Thisisme my desire for knowledge came after high school & I love watching documentaries and game shows that challenge my mind like Jeopard & Wheel of Fortune. I was very quiet in school & didn't even start dating until my junior year and then only because my best friend pushed me into it and even found me the blind date. I rode my bicycle into town which was about 1 mile to see my first movie at a walk in theater. Cost me 50 cents to see Yul Brenner in The Magnificent Seven. I still love that movie.

Well..first of all, I certainly didn't even come close to looking like that in high school..nor did I accomplish all that much. I spent it daydreaming of when I could get out and start my life.
My Senior picture was hidious!
High school was not my days of glory..I guess you could say mine came later. :)
This was just the cutest post...and..I love the button you made for Desiree! Simply beautiful!!

Congratulations on your 1500 followers! That's fantastic! :)

Oh..wait...there is something. I had the cutest, best looking guy in school and that's the honest truth. I had him for 43 years. This was the best thing about high school. Meeting him.

Your photo is beautiful! I didn't belong to any particular group either and had a lot of friends from all "crowds". I loved school and learning and wish there was a way I could make a living by taking classes now. Of course they'd have to only be what I am interested in. ;-)

Lovely picture, and that's very interesting about not being a part of any particular crowd. I prided myself on the same thing, still do. I like being friends with a variety of people with different interests.

I think bloggers tend to do that, or at least the ones I know do.

XO,
