1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?

Building sand castles in the long-jump pit. True story.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

It was a tie - Human Bio because Stanford would donate cadavers for us to dissect, and Computer Science because I rewrote Pong in Basic and passed the class at midterm. (It was a challenge the teacher offered every year. I stayed in the class after that because it was fun.)

3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.

I was literally the ONLY senior who didn't cut on senior cut day because my mom threatened to take away my car. It sucked to be on campus that day.

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)

I bounced between the alternative(stoner!), jocks, and braniac crowd, with a handful of preppy friends. My HS was actually very well blended, we had groups but most people belonged to a couple.

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?

I took Latin all four years.

1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?

None of them. I am a klutz and was never good with any sort of athletic pursuit. I prayed to be sick on field day.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

All of them. I was such a dork.

3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.

I didn't get my drivers license until halfway thru my senior year. I just had no interest in driving. The first time I drove to school, it was a foggy, misty morning and I forgot to turn the lights off when I got to school. I had early dismissal, and when I went to start the car, discovered the battery was dead. I went to the office to call my dad to come jump start the car. He did not want to come up there and told me to go ask the auto-shop teacher if one of the shop students could help me. Now, I was one of those egg-head, "Smart" kids and I did not associate with the shop students. They were those wild kids that smoked and drank and all that stuff. So I wouldn't even get in the truck with the guy who very nicely volunteered to help me. As I got close to the car, I started going through my purse to find my keys. Couldn't find them. Looked in the car and discovered that I had locked the keys in the car when I went to call my dad. So I had to go back to the office, call my dad again and listen to him yell at me.

By the time he got to school, the regular dismissal bell had rung, and the parking lot was full of kids when Daddy screeched in on 2 wheels and made this HUGE production out of driving around on the band field to get in front of my car and popping the hood. All the other kids were looking at me like, "Oh, yeah, you're the smart kid, all right."

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)

I guess, primarily the band kids.

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?

French for 2 years, Spanish for one year. And then I ended up living in Germany for 3 years.

1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?
I don't remember field day. I would have been good at hula hooping if they had it.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?
psychology and English

3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.
?? I must have blocked it out!

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, brainiacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)
I had friends in different groups. My main group didn't fit into any category. We were just normal girls.

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?
Spanish 1st-8th grade one day a week and then 2 years in high school.

1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?

We did but I don't think I had a good event. I wasn't much of a runner back then. I run a lot more now then I did then and some think I'm fast for my age. So I guess I wish I could have field day now. LOL.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

Math and Science. Although I took a bunch of architectural drawing classes in high school and some independent study in it. But I went engineering in college so never got into architecture.


3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.

In one of my high school english classes we were asked questions on a book I did not read. I was asked where the main characters hid in the book. One of my "buddies" whispered an answer to me and I stated they hid "in the tree house". Problem was, they were hiding in the garage. So I was just a little embarrassed.

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)

Jocks with Brains

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?

I took French so now I make great french fries and french toast

1. I was always awesome at running short distances. Less than a 1/4 mile and I could usually finish top two.

2. All through grade school it was math, I was even in a math club for two years. In high school it was art, absolutely adored the art teacher and it was the only class I could ever take with my bff.

3. Goodness I was so self conscious everything was embarrassing. The two times I got in trouble were probably the worst. I was a super goody two-shoes, and admitting the reason was so nerdy it hurt.

In third grade I wanted to spend extra time learning to type so I went into the computer lab during recess. The lab teacher wasn't present so when someone caught me in there unattended they made me sit on the red dot. Mortifying.

Then in the 5th grade one of my classmates had a little mental break down, he trashed the class room and was carted off by the police. The rest of the class was dismissed for lunch/recess. A few classmates and I asked the recess aid for permission to return to the class so we could straighten-up, once again, no teacher present so we were reprimanded.

4. I got along pretty well with everyone but I was super shy and kind of a loner. I kind of just bounced around and hung out wherever nobody mentioned how quite I was being

5. In elementary I was learning sign language, but then I moved and Spanish was the only option through high school.

1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?

I've never been to a track and field day but I was really good at cross country.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

English and history.

3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.

We used to hide our phones in our pencil cases so we could text during class. One day during a science lesson, my teacher caught me reading a text my boyfriend at rhe time had just sent me. My teacher took my phone off me and read the text aloud to the class. Unfortunately it was rather explicit in nature, detailing what my BF was going to do when he saw me. I was mortified but so was my teacher, he tailed off reading the text, went bright red and handed me back the phone. He began talking very enthusiastically about osmosis and didn't look me in the eye for the rest of the year.

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)

I went to an English all girls Catholic school. We didn't really have groups, just 'popular but bitchy', 'geeks' and then everyone else. I was in the 'everyone else' group. Not massively popular, not disliked, average grades.

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?

French and German. I suck at both.

1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?
I was really good at eating the popsicles they handed out after the events.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?
I liked mini-courses the best; these were offered during period of about 2 weeks each winter, and were a complete departure from almost anything offered, academically, at the time. There were a variety of interesting vocational and artistic courses, as well as interesting trips. My first (and to date, only) trip abroad was for a mini-course....I got invaluable exposure to British pubs.
3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.
I got my period right before French class, and asked the teacher, before class started, if I could go to the nurse quickly. She pointedly asked me to explain, en francais, precisely WHY I had to go to the nurse. In front of the class. A friend came to my rescue, literally whisking me from the room while hissing, "she's got to go to the nurse!---NOT en francais--at the teacher.
4.
How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)
I grew up in the Land of Preppy. So that, as a label, is redundant, because we ALL were preppy. It's still the norm in the area. That said, I was a group-hopper. I didn't really think I fit in with any of the groups, but am told I did with all. Basically, I was a pretty good kid who did a fair amount of stuff I shouldn't have, while still holding down a job and getting good grades. Like most kids, I guess.
5. What foreign language(s) did you take?
French. It's been ever so useful. You know, like when reading menus. (Actually, my dog speaks French. I don't know how I figured this out, but he responds much more readily to commands given in French. So I guess it's useful.)

I was really good at coming in last in the 800 m.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

Sciences

During my sophomore year a girl asked for my phone number. I was so nervous I forgot my number and too embarrassed to tell her that, so I made one up. She never spoke to me again...

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)

Stoners/D&D outcasts

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?

English, that was tough enough, though I did have friends who took elvish and dwarvish (see question #4).

1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?

Jump Rope champ of 2nd grade! That was probably the last athletic thing I ever did. I actually lettered in high school for being the Varsity Basketball scorekeeper for 4 years...

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

Comp Sci and AP Bio

3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.

I used to wear loafers in high school, and somehow I was forever making the rear edge of the heel hit the floor just right so as to completely slide out from under me and down I'd go. Happened a lot.

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)

Braniacs and proud of it. That changed DRAMATICALLY when I got to college and flunked out of everything...

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?

French

1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?

I would not be good in any of these events. I was usually chosen last if we had to choose teams in gym class. But hey, I'm 55 and ran my first 5K this weekend. While I didn't "win" any race, I am quite aware that most 55 year old women including those more athletic ones I went to school with, were NOT out there running a 5K.
What was your favorite subject in school?


Math. Still is. I'm a math teacher and math professor.
3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.

Too many to mention but I guess the time that I was involved in writing a nasty letter to a bully and the principal ended up seeing it.

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)


I was most interested and somewhat competitive with some of the braniacs but I can't say they were really my "friend group." In fact the person who was 3rd in my class basically would not speak to me because he thought himself better than me. I was 4th and I wish I'd tried just a bit harder so I could have taken his rank position. Oh, well, a little late for that now!

I only had a couple of close friends and they were not braniacs, were more average but we did have some interests in common (like roller skating and chasing boys) They were not nerds, jocks or braniacs, nor were they preppy.

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?
French. It was the only one offered in my school. A lot of people did not take any foreign language. You don't have to. My daughter didn't take any in high school but ended up majoring in Asian Languages and Cultures in college (is now working on her Ph.D. in that same field).

HFSSC:
I didn't get my drivers license until halfway thru my senior year. I just had no interest in driving.

I didn't get mine until about that same time but unlike you it was not because I had no interest. It was because I was so nervous and had zero self-confidence. I failed my road driving test three times because of this. That was more than embarrassing; it was downright humiliating but I don't recall that the kids in school were aware of it so I didn't list that as one my embarrassing school moments. My younger sister got her license before I did. I can't think of anything more humiliating than that!

I was extremely invested in getting my license because my mother never learned to drive. A huge part of my life story is watching the sad life my mother lived, dependent on my father who treated her terribly. I felt her life might have been quite different if she had the independence that would come with being able to drive.

I don't remember if they had one and I would have sucked at any of the events. But now? I'd be best at running...best shape of my life and ran another 5K this past weekend.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?
biology - I wasn't good at it but the teacher was awesome.

3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school. I've blocked it all out...

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .) didn't really belong anywhere. I just showed up and got thru the days. got along with everyone and just floated around...Oh, and maybe a Mom to my younger sister and her friends...I was the one they called when they were in trouble and needed help, which was often. They were definitely the rebels.

5. What foreign language(s) did you take? 1 year of Spanish as HS senior; had only been made mandatory a few years before and it was either Spanish or French. we learned German at home

1. If your school had a track and field day, what was your best event? If it didn't then which event do you think you would have been best in?

Can running backwards be one of them? I was surprisingly good at running backwards very quickly.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?

Social Studies.

3. Tell something embarrassing that happened to you at school.

I'd often forget my gym suit at home and have to wear the ones the school kept on-hand....the shirts were usually still sweaty from the kid the class before, and the shorts were those 1970's style NBA-style daisy duke type-joints.

4. How would you classify your friend group in school? (Jocks, braniacs, band folks, Preppy, . . . .)

I didn't really have a friend group. I had a few friends, but none of us were distinct enough to be in a group.

5. What foreign language(s) did you take?

None, in High School. Wasn't required.

No one had cell phones when I was in high school. I can't remember if they weren't invented yet, or if they were too expensive for kids to have them.

Wow, I feel so old now.
