Nickname in high school?
Actually, went by my real name, John.

Is chess a sport? How about origami?

Had a circle of friends?
Yes, mostly nerds, and kids from my town on the other side of the tracks.

Best subject?
Math, Biology, Latin, French.

PE. I hated gym class, and skipped as much as I could get away with.

Rick. Also in junior high and college.

Worst friend?
My brother, two years older than me, could have been a lot nicer. (Copied from rootbeer1, but exactly the same sentiment).

Cafeteria food sucked?
Not really. I skipped lunch most days to hang out in the library with friends and save up my lunch money. We were kinda poor.

Wore uniforms?
If jeans and sweatshirts were a uniform. I did have a full beard, though.

How was the prom?
Don't know--didn't go. Couldn't afford it, and didn't drive, so there wasn't much point.

Some jock and cheerleader. The school was extremely sports-oriented.

National Merit Scholar, National Honor Society, English award, Regents scholarship. Latin Club, Astronomy Club, Chess Club, Key Club, Math Contest, TV production crew. What a nerd.

In my own little group, yeah. Especially senior year.

The Sound of Silence
