High School Flashbacks

I was tagged on Facebook by a former resident of Saipan. I have a good answer for #27, so I am going to fill this one out. Facebook will pull the RSS feed from my blog and automatically post this. I'll go back into facebook and tag 10 people after it posts (I think you can do that).

Here it goes:
Fill this out about your high school life! The longer ago it was, the more fun the answers will be!! At the end, choose 10 people (or more) to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.


IN HIGH SCHOOL DID YOU...

1.DID YOU DATE SOMEONE FROM YOUR SCHOOL?
In the 10th grade I dated a girl named Laura. I think we were together for three days before we broke up. She was my only girlfriend in high school as I was terrified of women until I was about 25.

2. DID YOU MARRY SOMEONE FROM YOUR HIGH SCHOOL?
No wife. No kids. No debt. No kidding.

3. DID YOU CARPOOL TO SCHOOL?
Freshman year I drove to school with my cousins, Chris and Jamie. I walked Sophmore year. Junior year I got a ride from Forrest down the street. Senior year I drove my neighbor, Craig, and my friend, Steve.

4. WHAT KIND OF CAR DID YOU HAVE?
I bought an 88 Honda Civic my senior year for $3000.

5. WHAT KIND OF CAR DO YOU HAVE NOW?
I have a rusted out 96 Jeep Cherokee that I bought for $3000.

6. IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT... WHERE WERE YOU THEN?
Showalter Field, getting ready for the 1600 m run.

7. IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT... WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
Godfathers.

8. WHERE DID YOU WORK?
Senior year I worked at the Magic Kingdom. I worked Parade Audience Control, then Splash Mountain, and then Entertainment. I was in Spectromagic almost every night.

9. WHAT KIND OF JOB DO YOU DO NOW?
I'm actually unemployed at the moment, but I'm an environmentalist.

10. WERE YOU A PARTY ANIMAL?
Not at all. I didn't drink a drop of alcohol until college and I've never done drugs.

11. WERE YOU CONSIDERED A FLIRT?
I was considered a social retard.

12. WHAT EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES WERE YOU IN?
I ran Cross Country and Track, played Soccer one year, and dabbled in Student Council and International Club.  I also belonged to a Karate dojo, but that was outside of school.

13. WHERE YOU A NERD?
Hell YES!!! I collected baseball cards, took 5 AP classes Senior year and got a 1470 on my SAT. I was a super-ultra-mega nerd.

14. DID YOU GET SUSPENDED OR EXPELLED?
Not even close.

15. FAVORITE HIGH SCHOOL MEMORY?
Probably the 4x400 m race at the Regional Track Meet Junior year. That story was published in the Marianas Variety and republished on my blog two years ago.

16. WHAT WERE YOUR FAVORITE SUBJECTS?
Physics and Math.  I hated English and Chemistry.

17. WHO WERE YOUR BEST FRIENDS?
Steve, Joe, and Juan

18. WHAT WAS YOUR SCHOOL'S FULL NAME & MASCOT?
Winter Park High School Wildcats

19. WHAT YEAR DID YOU GRADUATE?
1996

20. WORST HIGH SCHOOL MEMORY?
I really hated moving to Florida in the 9th grade. Things eventually got better.

21. IF YOU COULD GO BACK AND DO IT AGAIN, WOULD YOU?
Hell YES!!!

22. DID YOU HAVE FUN AT PROM?
I guess so.

23. DO YOU STILL TALK TO THE PERSON YOU WENT TO PROM WITH?
We don't talk, but we're friends on Facebook. She's married to another woman. That's hot.

24. ARE YOU PLANNING ON GOING TO YOUR NEXT REUNION?
Probably not. I missed my 10th in 2006 because I was in Saipan. Who knows if we'll even have another one?

25. DO YOU STILL TALK TO PEOPLE FROM SCHOOL?
I talk to Selena, but we didn't go to Winter Park at the same time. I'm also the only Wildcat within 7000 miles of Saipan (that I know about).

26. FAVORITE BAND?
In high school? Probably anything associated with Gangsta Rap (Snoop Doggy Dogg, Warren G, and Dr. Dre).

27. ANYONE FROM YOUR SCHOOL BECOME FAMOUS?
Not from my school, but Senior year I made out with a girl, Dana DeArmond, from a neighboring high school, University High School, who went on to star in Gang Bang My Face 3.

28. DO YOU STILL LIVE IN THE TOWN YOU DID IN HIGH SCHOOLl?
Not even close, but my mother still lives there.

29. DID YOU FOLLOW THE CAREER PATH YOU HAD PLANNED IN HIGH SCHOOL?
In high school I wanted to be a scientist. I'm an unemployed environmentalist, so I'm at least in the same ballpark.

30. HAS YOUR LIFE TURNED OUT THE WAY YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BACK WHEN YOU WERE PLANNING YOUR 'FUTURE'?
I thought I'd be married with kids by now.  Honestly, I never really though about a career much.  My goals were always travel and learning.

And honestly, when you get right down to it,
how many of us can say we provided entertainment,
relief, and--I dare say--education and instruction
to countless thousands, had our talents immortalized
on film, while truly turning our passion into profit?
That, my friend, is the true measure of success,
and the value of education.

Ah ha!

You commented on the embedded comment thingy!

I win!

...and I don't think Dana went to school to learn what she does for a living.

Yep, number 27 did it. But I still think you should poll your readers and ask what format of comment box they prefer: the popup style or the embedded thingy.


And, as for Dana, who are we to say what manner of education was actually dispensed at University High School? The true story may have simply not yet been revealed. Keep your eye on 60 Minutes.

I tagged 10 people on Facebook. Looking forward to the responses, but something tells me Brad Ruszala will be the only one to write back.

The Saipan Blogger アンジェロ・ビラゴメズ said...

They call it University High School because it is across the street from the University of Central Florida.

...and teachers sleeping with students is pretty common on Saipan, I've heard.

The Saipan Blogger アンジェロ・ビラゴメズ said...

Alright, not all that common, but I did hear this one rumor...

The Saipan Blogger アンジェロ・ビラゴメズ said...

So in reality it was just this one time, but...

By the way, I'm not a teacher...

My favorite memory of you in high school is watching you run. You were the best runner I have ever seen, and that's not just because I'm your mom! It's funny, because we were talking about your high school track days at dinner last night. Love you, Mom
