North East High School
Graduated, June 1988
I graduated 7th in my class out of 142 students -- the top 6 were girls (ugh). There ain't a whole lot I can say about the high school years that most of us don't already know. I was a geek, I wasn't liked a whole lot, my clothes were always out of style, etc., etc.
I filled my high school days with being in band and chorus, and joining more clubs than I can remember right now. Heck, one year I even went out for track! And here is something scary -- I had some of the same teachers that my parents had.... eek!
A lot of my teen angst and events of my life are documented in my diary (which is not online at this point). It's interesting to go back and read parts of it now and then. There are so many things I have forget as time goes on.
There are very few people from high school that I keep in contact with. Most of the friends I had are either in other places, or they just don't care anymore.
I still take a lot of pride in my hometown high school. My winter hat is from my school, and I have several clothing items with my high school's mascot and/or logo. I get the reports from my mother as to the status of our teams. She's a TOTAL sports junkie. And I've been on a kick to get clothing that's maroon and gold, my school colors.
I can't believe that my high school class had its 20-year reunion in 2008. Unfortunately I wasn't able to go - they picked a bad night (a Friday night) for the reunion, which basically screwed any of us that live out of town. I was able to make the 15-year and 10-year class reunions. At both events, I had a lot of fun catching up with people, though now with Facebook, it's been a lot easier to keep up with people that I haven't seen in years. We'll
have to see what happens for the 25-year reunion.
