High School

1. Did you date someone from High school? No, I didn't date anyone in any of my high schools. I was that much of a social outcast.

2. What kind of car did you drive? Toyota Tercel then a Ford Ranger

3. What was the most embarrassing moment of high school? I accidentally walked into the boys restroom ... while the guy I was totally "crushing on" was ah ... you know.4. Were you a party animal? Right ... that's me. Hah. I was never invited to a legitimate high school party. So I never had the chance to discover if I was or not.

5. Were you considered a flirt? No.

6. Were you in Band orchestra, or Choir? No
7. Were you a nerd? Well, I think being a nerd you have to be smart. Considering I worked for C's in some of my classes ... I'll have to say no.

8. Were you on any varsity team? No, I played provincial level soccer though.

9. Did you ever get suspended or expelled? No. I was way too boring.

10. Can you still sing the fight song? I don't know if we had one ...
11. Who were your favorite teachers? Mrs. Dyck. She was mean, insightful, funny.

12. Were did you sit during lunch? At home. I was that unpopular, I had no one to eat with. Except when I went to LCI for that one semester - then Mark French (love you, Frenchie)

14. School Mascot? Rams, Pride, Bulldogs

15. Whom did you go to Homecoming with? I'm Canadian - we don't do Homecoming.

16. If you could go back and do it again would you? I would rather eat a light bulb, very likely less painful.

17. What so you remember most about graduation? I didn't go. #1 I had no one I wanted to ask (well, I did ... but Trevor Zuba was my brothers best friend, and I still hadn't crossed that particular line) #2 No one asked me #3 I worked instead

18. Were did you go Senior Skip day? You mean one entire semester? I think I just stayed home and took care of my moms day care kids

19. Were you in a club? The Yearbook Club. I took the pictures and got commercial sponsors.

20. Have you gained some weight since then? Entirely too much.

21. Who was your prom date? Didn't do this either.

22. Are you planning on going to your ten year reunion? Did not go. No desire to bring up painful memories, thanks.

23. Looking back what advice would you give yourself? Don't worry about other people. Just take care of yourself. In two years ... none of it matters anyway.

Oh sweet pea! why do they try and torture us with memories we would rather keep hidden. Loved your answers. I thought you were writing about my high school experience.

Ditto on the comments above. Mostly Jr. High for me, although I can still relate to a great deal of it. I didn't go to my grad either... Didn't attend reunion.

Thanks for visiting my blog. There are also a bunch of groups of facebook that support families of Aspies and Auties, which you may want to search out... Very supportive, and they can give a good idea of the kind of relationships, jobs, etc. that other HFA people have proven themselves capable of sustaining... It's quite encouraging!
