Sunday Social - Middle and High School

What was your biggest middle school fashion mistake? 

I don't think it was a mistake back then, but I cringe now when I look at pictures. The Midwestern grunge look was big when I was in junior high. I wore a lot of plaid flannel shirts and there was also overalls. There were even short overalls for the summer.

Who were your best friends in high school? Pics?

I'm actually not really even friends with the girls I hung out with in high school. There were five of us all together. We went to different colleges and just drifted apart. I am Facebook friends with one of them and we do sometimes talk on there, but she lives across the country now. I won't post pictures since I don't know how they'd feel about that.

What was a typical weekend like for you in high school?

If it was fall, then typically I spent my Saturdays at marching band competitions cheering for my friends (they were all in it) and my brother. The rest of the year, I probably just stayed home or went shopping with my mom. I didn't get my driver's license until after high school, so I had to get rides to hang out with my friends. Sometimes, we got together on Friday or Saturday nights and just watched movies or went to a local coffee shop.

Did you have any boyfriends/girlfriends? Tell us about that. 

No boyfriends in high school, just a lot of crushes. I'm actually pretty glad for that now because I see how teenagers act about their boyfriends and it's pretty ridiculous. I was already ridiculous, I'm sure, so I didn't need that added stupidity of mooning over someone.

Did you have any secret codes with your friends? Spill your secrets! 

We usually had code names for our crushes so nobody would know who we were talking about if they overheard us or intercepting one of our notes. I was in high school before texting, so we still wrote notes and folded them up all fancy.

If you could relive one day/moment/experience from middle school or high school, what would it be?

Hmm, I didn't really love junior high or high school, so I'm not sure that there's anything I'd like to relive.



  1. It's funny how many of us had secret code names for our crushes -- we were so cool! Stopping by from the Sunday Social, happy to meet you :)
