High school meme

I got this MEME from Real and since I have not much else to say today ... Check out the photo from my senior class - can you find me??????

1. Who was your best friend?
Daniela and Sylvia but I didn't met Sylvia until Dani and I got to our High school (the german school system is a bit different and not everyone goes to high school) Dani and I were together in Grammar school and then went on to the same gymnasium while some of our classmates went to realschools and vocational schools ...)

2. What sports did you play?
Sports teams in Germany are not tied to schools - but I was in a swim team and was part of a life guard association

3. What kind of car did you drive?
well I had 2 simson bikes my first was a red S51 and I loved it but it was old and kept breaking so I bought this really cool metalic blue one which kept breaking too.

o when my mom drove me to the repair shop she saw this brand new red scooter and bought it right then and there and I had that one until I was 18 and got my car divers license and for my birthday I got my blue Trabant.
The trabant used to be built in my hometown before the wall came down and it was out off all the once I have driven since my favorite. Who cares that it only goes 60 miles an hour. You could fix everything on it with duck tape!

4. It's Friday night, where were you?
since the age of 13 I went out every weekend so the chances were I was at the "Erle"

5. Were you a party animal?
ahmmm yeah I was famous for my parties everyone loved coming since there was allways enough booze and food

6. Were you considered a flirt? I don't know I never knew when guys were interested. I guess

7. Ever skip school?
Who me? ahmm gee

9. Were you in any clubs?
none but my own but then again there were no clubs in our schools

10. Suspended?
never !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As far as my teachers knew I was a grey mouse that didn't do anything bad

11. Can you sing the fight song?
whats a fight song?

12. Who was your favorite teacher?
I don't remember honestly it wasn't like I paid THAT much attention. I was to busy catching up on sleep so I'd be fit for practice and dancing.

13. What was your favorite class?
Swim class in 11 & 12 grade we had to choose 4 different PE semesters I picked swimming, volleyball, judo and tennis. In swim class all I did was goof off since i already knew everything so unless the teacher had me demonstrate stuff I got to just play in my own lane. loved it!

14. What was your school's full name?

15. School mascot?
no such thing

16. Did you go to dances?
what? like school dances now I told you we didn't have those school is there to be learned in nothing more - and yes I may have attended a few back in grammar school when it was still east germany.

17. If you could go back and do it over again, would you?
I mean it was great no responsibilities and stuff but no i don't think I would

18. What do you remember most about graduation?
skipping it to go camping with my friends, my social life was never in school or with school people i had my friends outside school and thats who I hung with (except for Dani and Sylvia but they didn't hang out with me to much since I was kind of wild but they'd come to my parties)

19. Favorite memory of your Senior Year?
field trip to Paris I guess oh and last day of school were we TP's the principals car and spraypainted it.

20. Were you ever posted up on the senior wall?
i doubt I would have if we had one - well maybe next to a condom wrapper since I was the one person everyone would hit up for condoms thanks to me having an unlimited supply at the AIDS foundation.

22. Where did you go most often for lunch?
Grahams Bakery they had the best french baguettes with lettuce and eggsalad. To this day I will not be in my hometown without stopping by there. (my school was in the city so we could walk everywhere in town in no time)

23. Have you gained weight since high school?
oh hell yeah liked doubled

24. What did you do after graduation?
i didn't go to gratuation remember I was camping and that night drinking with some lifeguards I had met until midnight and then drove 6h to get to my life guard duty station.

Oh you mean like after in general - ahm got married (twice) moved across the world ...

25. When did you graduate?
July 1996 don't know the exact date since I wasn't there

26. Where are most of your classmates?

27. Did you have a high school sweetheart?
no I don't believe in dating people from your school or work. I did see someone be he was part of the clique I hung out with. I loved when he came to pick me up from school in the winter and we rode the bus (public transportation there are no school busses) home together.

28. Have you changed since?
mhh yeah my hair is back to its natural color I work on the weekends instead of going out and so forth. Being a grown up sucks!

29. Have you been to your high school since you graduated?
yes last year for the first time it was my 10th high school reunion. oh but wait it was somewhere else and my school is not a school anymore so I guess the answer is no. (I did walk past it a few times)

So did you find me in the picture above??? No well here lets take a look again click on the photo to enlarge it.

That's a pretty neat meme, I may have to try it sometime. Always fun to find out about high schools outside of the US.

jin said...

Cute bikes & car!

Very neat read, especially since you grew up in Germany!

The Phosgene Kid said...

Dino aka Katy said...

Nicole - do it, it was fun

Jin - yeah for Jin

Phos - ever thought about getting classes?

REAL said...

Your version of the meme was a great read.

Sweet scooter - I was "looking" at a couple when the gas prices where so very very high. That is until everyone in my family started making fun of me.

I guess they just haven't seen FLCL.

Nosjunkie said...

Steven Novak said...

There was like 3,000 people in my seior class.


schaumi said...

i went through the german school system and the american school system. i stayed confused all the way through, therefore.........
i did a whole bunch of skipping of classes...:)
and yes, german youth have outside sports clubs and other venues and cafes at which to socialize. it's not all done through the high schools.

Dino aka Katy said...

nosjunkie - thats okay I forgive you you can try again :) welcome to my blog

Steven - yeah it was a small school. remember there are 3 different type of school the one I went to only the people smart enought to go onto colleges were there

Schaumi - I bet you were confused. Things were bad enough for me when the wall came down and the east german system changed to the west german one. I miss cafes
