Show & Tell

I've got a bad case of the Mondays, so I've decided to do some Show & Tell to distract from that. I loove this link up. Probably my favorite and I've only done it once.
Head on over to From Mrs. to Mama and Show and Tell!
1. Tell us what kind of student you were in high school {popular, nerd, sport obsessed, choir, etc}
I really didn't fit in any sterotype. I had a few close friends, did alright in school, and wasn't really that involved in anything. My senior year, I was on the Drill Team (competative dance team) which made my name known, but I wasn't like all the other "drill team girls."
2. Share with us some high school pictures. We know you have them somewhere.

I want to say this was my sophomore year at a bowling alley

Ice Skating my my Letterman's jacket. I loved wearing it. Such an honor right?
Peer Leadership team
Senior Dinner-Dance
I've got more somewhere, but I can't find them...Maybe I'll add more later!
3. Tell us about your school. Private? Public? How many in graduating class? Mascots? School Colors? 
I went to a public High school. There were over 400 students in my graduating class. My school had the IB (International Bacclaureate) Program, so we had lots of smarty pants that went to Ivy League schools after high school. Our mascot was the Husky and our school colors were Green and White. Back in the day, We also had orange. Some of the old school drill team costumes had orange on them. They actually look pretty sick too.
4. Tell us about some of your favorite memories of high school. Or what stands out the most? Any teachers? Specific classes?
To this day, I'm not one of those people that wishes she could return to high school. It wasn't the highlight of my life so far. I wasn't cool, I never got asked to a dance, and I really didn't have very many friends. I did have some great teachers though. Namely, my AP Art History teacher Ms. Bradley. She spoke in accents according to where we were learning about and made boring stuff seem so interesting. And my AP Lit. and Comp teacher. He sang folk songs for our starters that were usually songs I knew. It was awesome.
5. Tell us a piece of advice you would pass on to your children or any child entering high school.
Don't try to fit inot any specific mold or group, but get involved. Do things that look fun to you and try out for everything you want to. Never be discouraged by the things that you don't succeed at. You're still learning about who you are and what your strengths and weaknesses are. Chances are, you won't succeed at everything.  It's nowhere near the best time of your life, but you may as well live it up while you can.
