Show & Tell Monday - High School Days

Happy Monday!  As usual, the weekend went way too fast!  I'm doing another link up today because well, I'm lazy and these are easier posts...I can just answer the questions and not really have to think :)  And I like meeting new bloggers through these link ups.  So here we go.  This week it's all about high school.

1. Tell us what kind of student you were in high school {popular, nerd, sport obsessed, choir, etc}.
I'd say I was a sporty, popular girl.  Sport obsessed?  Yeah, I guess that could have described me.  I played basketball and volleyball all four years and they were my main sports.  I also played softball for two years and ran track for one year.  I have played basketball since I was in 2nd grade (and way before that in my dad's barn with my brothers) and went on to play in college.  Other than sports though, I was a good student that didn't really get into trouble.  I got good grades and studied hard.

2. Share with us some high school pictures. We know you have them somewhere.
My damn scanner won't work and I have no idea how to fix it.  But I do have these already on my computer of some of my best high school friends.

My bachelorette party
The four of us played in 3 on 3 basketball tournaments from 2nd grade until high school.  Tons of them!  We even got to go to Florida to play.  So many great memories!

3. Tell us about your school. Private? Public? How many in graduating class? Mascots? School colors?
It's a small, public high school.  I think our graduating class was about 90, which was actually one of the biggest class sizes for our school.  We were the Redbirds and colors were red and black (typing that made me chant to myself "We are the Redbirds, and we are proud...") haha.  Anyway, it's a small school in a small town.  There wasn't a lot of diversity.  It's a tight knit community that really rallies around the sports teams, especially football.

4. Tell us about some of your favorite memories of high school. Or what stands out the most? Any teachers? Specific classes?
Most of my favorite memories are from playing sports.  To be honest though, I have such a horrible memory and don't remember a lot of my high school days.  It was pretty boring for the most part, which was fine with me.  It was all good, but I don't really care to go back and do it again.  I was glad to be out of there.  I had a lot of great teachers, but my favorite was Mr. Peterson.  He taught computer classes.  I enjoyed the classes, but mostly I loved Mr. P because he would always write me passes to get out of study hall to come down to the computer room and mess around.  It was much better than sitting in complete silence in study hall.

5. Tell us a piece of advice you would pass on to your children or any child entering high school.
Life is too short to stress about the small things in high school.  Yes, I know they will seem like big things at the time, but you will look back on it some day and realize that who you went to prom with and your friend that was talking behind your back will not matter in 5 years.  Work hard for good grades and have fun.  Don't forget that even though we may make you angry, your parents love you and will always look out for your best interest.  I promise I won't let your Daddy open the front door with his shot gun when your date picks you up for the first time.

Link up and share your high school memories!
