GTKY - high school edition

With all the high school drama on here lately (thanks sparkly!), I thought we needed a GTKY!

What was your HS mascot? 

Did your HS have any fun/interesting traditions?

Where did you work in high school?

How did you get to/from school?

What were your extra-curricular activities?

What did you and your friends do for fun?

Do you still keep in contact with anyone from HS (IRL, fb friends don't count!)?

If you had to go back and do it all over again, would you?

  • What was your HS mascot? We were the Fighting Irish

    Did your HS have any fun/interesting traditions? we had a lot of fun Homecoming skits and each day of Homecoming week we had a different theme - like pajama day - which was fun b/c we normally wore uniforms. 

    Where did you work in high school? I babysat and had a real job at the dry cleaners

    How did you get to/from school? My brother was a year older so he drove us, and then I got the car when he went off to college

    What were your extra-curricular activities? I played sports, was in French club, and was a student ambassador.  That meant we went out to the grade schools and talked about our HS and then hosted students when they came to visit.

    What did you and your friends do for fun? Most just went to each other's houses.  We hung out in the Taco Bell parking lot often.  We also went to movies, bowling, and mini golfing and went to a lot of the HS sporting events.

    Do you still keep in contact with anyone from HS (IRL, fb friends don't count!)? Just with my BFF, though I haven't seen her in a couple years.  I'll randomly get emails from friends and I do hear about them through my mom and dad.

    If you had to go back and do it all over again, would you? Oh My Gosh, NO!!  No No No never ever ever, you couldn't pay me enough to go back.  Oh I was so awkward and self-conscious and awkward.  Ick, I get embarrassed just thinking about it.  I had a great time and had a really active social life, but I was too worried about what other people thought and trying so hard to fit.

  • What was your HS mascot? Blue Devil

    Did your HS have any fun/interesting traditions? hmm not really

    Where did you work in high school? A restaurant (Grandma's). I loved it. Worked there 4 years, since I stayed around for 2 years after I graduated to get my AA.

    How did you get to/from school? My mama! Until 11th grade when I got a car

    What were your extra-curricular activities? Band! Again, loved it. I played the trumpet, which was so much fun for pep band. In marching band I was in Rifles, and Jr and Sr year I was captain.

    What did you and your friends do for fun? Drove around. One of my friends had a cabin on the lake about 20 mins away. We loved spending time up there in the summer and occasionally winter. Didn't really drink until Sr year and even then it was sporatic.

  • What was your HS mascot?

    A sailboat... yeah. A freaking sailboat.

    Did your HS have any fun/interesting traditions?

    Our lake is a big deal ( the reason our town is as "uppity" as it is and why it's over run by tourists every summer >:( ) there's a park with a gazebo right by the lake, that's where our graduation is held and after all the graduates jump in the lake.

    Where did you work in high school?

    A couple places, a restaurant and a convenience store in the village.

    How did you get to/from school?

    The bus up until high school, then I snagged rides with friends who were older.

    What were your extra-curricular activities?

    I ran track, and I kicked a** at it until the stupid coach over worked me and I got a stress fracture in my hip... I haven't been able to run like I used to since then. 

    What did you and your friends do for fun?

    We drank in fields... yeah lol there was nothing else to do.

    Do you still keep in contact with anyone from HS (IRL, fb friends don't count!)?

    Well there's FI, and then there's my best friend (surprisingly we didn't really like each other in HS, we were "friends")  and then her boyfriend now was also my HS boyfriend. Other then that, I really could care less about anyone from back then.

    If you had to go back and do it all over again, would you? 

    No. I HATED my school, if you weren't rich and wearing the right clothes and carrying the right bags you were *** on their shoes. However... it is a fantasy and well, actually it's a bit of a goal too... to teach there. Kind of like my own private big FU, hopefully some of the teachers will be there still... probably several of the younger ones who were incredibly helpful and really truly were there for me. I want to prove to them that they weren't wrong about me. As for the others, more like a f*ck you look at me now type thing.
