What was I like in high school…do we really want to go there? Hmmm…

Well since you asked…and by you I mean

Mama’s Losin’ It

Yup, it’s time for her weekly link up again, AND I’t s Thursday – time for another Thursday Throwbackso this week I try, without totally mortifying myself, to tell you about the me that was 10 years ago.

Let’s kick things off with a couple of pics…most of my pictures from my school days are stashed away at my parents, hopefully to stay that way, these are a couple I stole from my moms Facebook to give you a glimpse of high school me


While a pics worth 1000 words I still have lots of words so here we go-

  • I was a chatterbox
  • I was ridiculously shy –Not as weird of a combo as it sounds…once you get to know me I never shut up, it just takes me a while to open up to new situations & people
  • I had learned what a flat iron was so at least I didn’t look like the fuzzy end of a qtip like in my jr high days
  • I wasn’t cool by any means but I’d say it’s safe to say I wasn’t a total dork either
  • I died my hair purple, then blond, then redish-orange…hell 1/2 the time it looked like a skittle threw up on my head
  • I was naive yet thought I knew it all and thought I was invincible – Okay this one’s ALL teenagers…oh and speaking of all teenagers, like the rest of them, I knew it all at 14, 15 , 16, 17, 18
  • I very uninvolved in most anything school / extracurricular related
  • Unathletic – I was such a slacker I signed up for aerobics and dance classes over sports and P.E. classes to avoid actual physical activity
  • Had a complete lack of school spirit
  • Average grades….not because it was the best I could do but because I was okay with that
  • Sheltered from a lot of ‘typical’ teenage shenanagins..I saved most of my shenanaginizing for a few more years
  • I was cool with everyone but as for true friends I always kept only 1 or 2 close friends at time
  • Worked from the time I turned 15 until I got pregnant in my college days
  • Shoppaholic

That’s about it…I was more or less just there in high school…and I was cool with that. Looking back it’s funny how some things never change…I’m still a shy, shopaholic, chatterbox who stays close with only a few people…and I’m cool with that. I guess that’s the biggest difference (besides getting more beautiful and wise with age) between 27 year old me and high school me is a lot more self confidence, I’m a lot better at rolling with the punches, oh and I have a little more common sense (at least I’d like to think so), but other than that I’m still just me – I guess it’s true, we are who are 🙂
So…Who were you in high school? Was it High School Hell, a blast and a half, did you skim by like me…tell me more!! (Oh and don’t forget to link up when you do:) )

    I’m with ya on points one and two… they seem like they’d be incompatible, but it just means I have to take time to get to know someone before I turn into that chatterbox!

      And you are def not alone! Loved your post (I tried to comment on your post on your page but I’m fighting a losing battle with word verification lol) I can never keep up with the laundry. And I HATE folding clothes! One day I may catch up but for now it’s a losing battle for me

  2. Your high school pictures look good. If only I had a few that don’t send me running for cover to hide my embarassment over big hair (80’s). then a few years later I went to the extreme with hair flat on my head. I went out of my house like that?

    I enjoyed reading your post. I’ll be back soon 🙂

    hi from mk’s

    Your outfit in your Senior pic is too cute! I was friendly with everyone in high school. They were not my favorite years, but not the worst either. 🙂 I think it is sooo cute your mom keeps you pics on Facebook. 🙂

    I always like people that don’t leave it out all there for everyone to see! My Mom never would have let me paint my bedroom that color! So bright and cheery!
