Show & Tell: High School Memories

This weeks show & tell theme is: High School Memories
1. Tell us what kind of student you were in high school {popular, nerd, sport obsessed, choir, etc}
So I actually think I fall into a lot of these categories. I would personally never call myself one of the popular kids, but if you ask people from my class they always tell me I was. I think it was more that I hung out with the popular kids, not that I was necessarily popular lol. I was also part of Volleyball, flag football, and softball, so I was in the athletic group too, but in sophmore year I decided I would rather get a job so I could save up money for a new car, so I quit sports. I also took alot of advanced classes, graduated early, and got good grades, so if you ask my hubby and friends they like to pick on me and say I was a nerd too.  
2. Share with us some high school pictures. We know you have them somewhere.
me, stephanie, bridget, and staci (first day of school, not sure if it was freshman or sophomore year)
me & heather (softball practice sophmore year)

me & ashley (junior year)
me & hubby (this was actually during the summer when we drove with my parents to new jersery)
& last but def not least, me & hubby at my senior prom
3. Tell us about your school. Private? Public? How many in graduating class? Mascots? School colors?
Funny, I had the choice to go to a local catholic private school, which all my closest friends were planning on attending. I had taken the entrance exam and even had all my papers ready for admissions. Then at the last minute, when I found out that my parents would have to pay extra for me not being catholic (were presbyterian), joining sports teams we would have to pay extra, and realizing i had to wear a uniform everyday, I decided I would go to our local public school. I believe my exact words to my mother were "I would rather you buy me a car and cool clothes than have to pay all that in tuition!" lol. 
I have absolutely no clue how many people were in my graduation class. It was large though. But I technically graduated early, so I didnt take any classes in the spring semester, but I did walk across stage with the rest of my classmates.
Our mascot was "the flying L's" and yes anyone who has gone there will tell you they always get asked, what the hell is a flying L? short story, it was originally Lauderdale L's but one year there was a boy who ran track and the day after one of the meets he was in the newspaper for winning. The title of the article was "Look at that Flying L!" End of short story.
Our colors were blue and white with the occasional gold added in.
4. Tell us about some of your favorite memories of high school. Or what stands out the most? Any teachers? Specific classes?
One of the best memories I have from high school is of course meeting the love of my life. I meet my hubby in one of my art classes. You can read all about our love story if you want ;)
But a few other favorite memories include:
  • baseball games and being a diamond darling (we announced and kept score up in the box on home games)
  • journalism class where I was in charge of selling ads in the back of the yearbook (aka-i got to leave school everyday during third period to "sell ads" lol yeah ok)
  • fourth period weight lifting (yeah basically never went to that since i left during third period)
  • Mr. Detloff - hot but totally perverted chemistry teacher
  • pep rallies - where i wore waaaay to short of shorts (soffies)
5. Tell us a piece of advice you would pass on to your children or any child entering high school.
I want my children to know that its important to have good grades and to go to school. However, I also want them to know that these will be the best years of their lives and to enjoy being young. You can be responsible and smart while also be part of sports and going to parties. As a parent I will hope we trust each other enough like my parents did with me to know not to get in trouble. 
Now dont forget to go link up and share some of your high school memories!
