Stolen from Valerie, because I really suck at updating this lately. And because I was in high school oh so long ago.

1. Who was your best friend? Hmm. I had a close group of friends. There were 6 of us. But I'd have to say Michelle was my best friend.

2. Did you play any sports? Nahh. I was a Yearbook & 4N6 nerd. I did bowl in a league for all 4 years, but my friends never considered that a sport.

3. What kind of car did you drive? I had a Dodge Spirit, then a Plymouth Breeze.

4. It’s Friday night. Where were you? Football games in the fall. Basketball or wrestling in the winter. And during the spring? Probably at home, or with friends.

5. Were you a party animal? Heck no.

6. Were you considered a flirt? Nah... I don't think so.

7. Were you in the band, orchestra or choir? Band all 4 years. Pit Orchestra. Pep band. Dorain Honors Band. SWAL Honors Band. Middle School Honors Band. I was such a band geek. How'd I get so good without practicing?

8. Were you a nerd? You could consider me that I guess. But I got along with pretty much anyone... except my friends at times.

9. Were you ever suspended or expelled? Nahh.

10. Can you sing the fight song? Heck yes. Even though I was usually playing it: "We're loyal to you Fennimore... We'll ever true Fennimore. We'll back you to stand as the best in the land 'cause we know you are grand Fennimore! U RAH RAH! We're in the fight Fennimore, so show them you're might Fennimore! Our team is our fame protector, on boys team for we expect a victory from you Fennimore! (yeah, they changed boys to team after I learned it. Bad habit I have.)

11. Who was your favorite teacher? Any one of my English teachers. I loved them all.

12. What was your school mascot? Golden Eagle.

13. Did you go to the Prom? All four years. Never had a date, just went with friends.

14. If you could go back, would you? Maybe. Just to do a few things over again.

15. What do you remember most about graduation? My party. And Jordan, the guy I walked with, sniffing our lilies as we were walking out and saying, "Man! These smell like SHIT!" as we walked by, oh, about 20 camcorders.

16. Where were you on Senior Skip Day? Hitting up the Malls in Madtown.

17. Did you have a job your senior year? Dietary Assistant at the Good Sam. As much as I complained about that job, I miss it.

18. Where did you go most often for lunch? School. Unless it was something nasty or during exams. Then I just skipped.

19. Have you gained weight since then? Nope. Lost :D And hoping to lose more.

20. What did you do after graduation? Worked all summer, then off to school.

21. What year did you graduate? 2006.

22. Who was your Senior Prom Date? Well we had Junior prom. But I didn't have a date for either.

23. Are you going/did you go to your 10 year reunion? Probably. So I can be skinny and laugh in all the fatty's wrinkled faces from all their stupid fake baking.
Oops. Did I say that out loud. Silly me.

So I've really been slacking on this. I dunno... guess I suck... lol. 16 more days until I move in... not that I've been counting or anything.

Oh, and Stef. That song is Beautiful Disaster by Jon McLaughlin.

I think I love this song. Listen to the lyrics closely. I like them. Sound like me? Maybe? Kinda? A little?

Wooo Chicago! Amazing. Kayla's friends were wonderful. My time there was definitely short, but way sweet.
Kayla picked me up and then we headed to her place in Madison. The whole reason she was going to Chicago was to drop off a veil that she made for a friend, and it ended up snagging. She had to start it all over again so we chilled (ok. Roasted, her air wasn't working) in her apartment, and finally hit the road at about 6... ending up in Chicago at about 9:30. We met her house group, and they were an amazing bunch of people. Her friend Tricia was super nice, and we talked right away, which isn't an easy thing for me to do. We then went to her friend Emily's apartment to crash... and I think I fell in love. With the apartment I mean. It was an old house with 3 stories, and they lived on the 3rd floor. It was so sweet and little.. and aw.
We woke up about 9 the next morning and Kayla had to finish up the veil. So after a quick stop at Jo-Ann's and a grocery store to pick up some munchies, we headed to Starbucks to get coffee and finish the veil. Mmm I think I'm starting to like coffee. Anyways, we finished the veil. And then I got to experience the L-Train for the first time! That was fun... I ended up doing a lot of waiting for Kayla. She had to take care of some college stuff and some bank stuff. But I got to see where she used to work, and the custom-fit shoe store where I saved her from countless hours of boredom (I would talk to her on MSN when I didn't have class). Then we met up with her ex-boyfriend (I seriously think she was trying to set me up with him, but it's painfully obvious that he still wants her). We floated around lake Michigan for about an hour... then went and got some amazing ice cream, which Larry paid for. Then we had to drive around and find a place to leave the veil, and that took longer than expected.
Finally we were on our way home. We stopped at the Belvedere Oasis and realized that we hadn't taken many pictures, so we figured we better get on that. And we were outside on these tables, at 11 pm taking all these pictures. And a semi driver honked at us, and we were like what the heck? And we realized that he was laughing at us. I'm sure he thought we were drunk!
I learned 2 things. That if I ever decide to move to Chicago, for some strange reason, I'll already have friends there. :) And #2. Don't wear flip flops when you walk all over Downtown Chicago. Can you say Blisters? Ouch.

But I'm home, safe and sound, and hopefully planning another trip soon :D
