Senior Year meme

I was tagged on Facebook (ages ago) for this meme about my senior year of high school. I'm not much into tagging people these days, but if you want to play along, great! And, what would a high school post be without some humiliating pictures? I scanned these from my scrapbook for your entertainment. You can click on them to enlarge and get the full value of their humor. I graduated in 1995.....

1. Did you date someone from your school?

2. Did you marry someone from your high school?

3. Did you car pool to School?
Yep, various people, various years. I drove my senior year, and sometimes picked up a friend "in town" on my way.

4. What kind of car did you have?
A rather unattractive olive green Oldsmobile.

5. What kind of car do you have now?
2005 Honda Accord and a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder

6. Its Friday night...where are you in HS?
I grew up in a football town, so if there was a game, that was the only place to be. Other times of the year, I would have been hanging out with my friends. We usually congregated at my house or my friend, Corby's house.

7. It is Friday night...where are you now?
At NIGHT I'm at home because we've got two little girls who need to go to bed, but in the evening I may be out to dinner, enjoying time with friends, or having an at home date with my hubby.

8. What kind of job did you have in high school?
I worked at "Little People Daycare Center." I ran their after school program during the year and their camp program in the summer. It was nice because it was just for a few hours after school, but I didn't have to work nights or weekends. My social life was quite important....

9. What kind of job do you do now?
Full time mommy and part time occupational therapist.

10. Were you a party animal?
Depends how you define party drinking, no smoking, no drugs. However, we were out late a lot and had a lot of parties. There were at least 30 of us in my public high school that were all Christians and had good, clean fun. We were together A LOT.

12. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?
Concert band (played the flute). No desire to be in marching band.

13. Were you a nerd?
no. I took academic classes, but it wasn't nerdy to be smart in my school.

14. Did you get suspended or expelled?

15. Can you sing the fight song?
If someone can start me off...maybe.

16. Who was/were your favorite teacher(s)?
Miss Hoover (Spanish), Mr Kensinger (Chemistry), and Mr Kreider (History)

17. Where did you sit during lunch?
Cafeteria...with my girlfriends.

18. What was your school's full name?
Manheim Central Senior High School

20. What was your school mascot?
a Baron

21. If you could go back and do it again, would you?
I'm happy with my life now, and I was happy with my life then. I am still close to many of my friends from high school and have many happy memories from those years.

22. Did you have fun at Prom?
A blast! And why not share a few pictures from that too...
I LOVED that dress. Especially the back. And my's in a banana clip, and yes, I loved that too. And yes, Jen and Jen, I'm taking you down with me. ;o)

23. Do you talk to the person you went to Prom with?
no...we're facebook friends though and if I run into him, we are friendly.

24. Are you planning on going to your next reunion?
Well, I planned the last one (with some friends). If one gets planned, I will go.

25. Do you still talk to people from school?

Thanks a lot for incriminating me in those photos, too, Lynn! Just kidding - we looked pretty good (for 1995, that is!)

It was a trip down memory lane for me, too, and made me once again realize how blessed we were to have an awesome group of Christian friends - that was a rarity back then and even more of a rarity nowadays. I only hope my kids will be blessed in the same way once they reach high school...

Mari said...

What fun! I think those pictures are great and you looked good!

Krazy Fam said...

Are you kidding me?? You were adorable!!! My hair was SO much worse!

Momma Roar said...

That was a fun trip down memory lane - that is exactly how I remember you and it was long curly hair that I thought of when SS and I first realized we both knew you!

What no mention of the Kreider's store? ;-)

"Barons charge on for MCHS to take this game in great victory so fight, fight, fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for MCHS Barons fi-i-i-ight." Take it Lynn!!

I still see Eric, he married my neighbor's daughter!!

Kristen said...

Musicaljean said...

Oh, come on, you girls were gorgeous! I totally remember being there for that photo shoot at your house.

I still see some of your high school crowd from time to time - mostly Krista and Anthony, of course!
