Your best friend was?
Rick. Also in junior high and college.
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.
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.
Who were the prom king and queen?
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.
Were you popular?
In my own little group, yeah. Especially senior year.
Best song that reminds you of high school?
The Sound of Silence
