Yeah, I know, high school is such a bittersweet time (or maybe just a bitter time for some), but every so often something crosses my mind and I just get all nostalgic. I was just looking at the group dedicated to my high school on Facebook and I went and looked up the school's website.
I miss a lot the friends I had in high school. I miss playing sports. I miss being on the step team. I miss a lot of my teachers. I miss the feeling of being on top of the world as a senior.
I went to:
Stadium High School
Home of the Tigers
Colors: Blue & Gold
Class of: 2005
-Top Notch Tigers or TNT (Step Team)
-Stadium World (Newspaper)
-Track & Field (more field than track)
Fun & Random Facts:
-I tried out for the cheerleading team
-I was kicked out of class once for receiving a piece of cake for my birthday
-I was once threatened, by another black student, that he had friends in the KKK who would "punish" me for being a "Black girl who was too proud" ...he seriously had issues being black
-I accidentally sent a chain email to my basketball coach that was all about the benefits of sex; he sent a response that simply said, "You better not be doing this." I wasn't.
-I was almost suspended on the last day of school, within 15 minutes of the final bell ringing
-Coach Clark (Basketball)
-Ms. Perkins (Freshman & Junior English)
-Mrs. Keeney (WA State History, Psych)

-Being a T.A.
Most Hated Subjects:
-Math, during the "Integrated Math" debacle
-Junior year, hands down. Senior year was great, but so many marvelous things happened during that 3rd year.
Go, Stadium Tigers,
