High school ME

Remember high school YOU? The one that went to a Spanish Club meeting once, but once was enough to put it on your list of activities on your college application?

You thought you were so cool. But you weren’t.

Today, my mom was cleaning out some files on her computer and found my list of activities during my four years of high school. I was a Who’s Who (lame give-us-money-to-be-in-our-book scam if there ever was one), alter boy, Quizz bowl, basketball player.

Hell, I was an angel.

Meet High school me! (the formatting is a little screwed up, apparently I didn’t know how to make columns on word)

Man, you were a keeeeener! I was all about sitting in the cafeteria listening to angry music on my Walkman and deliberately not joining stuff.

However, I also thought I was so cool. And wasn’t. So we all have that in common.

Kelsey says:

I’m not sure what a keener is, but, yeah, I probably was one. A lot of the list is college application fluff.

I vaguely remember a literature club – we met once and watched a movie.

I was the Spanish Club president, but only ever attended one meeting and…here’s the kicker…I didn’t speak a lick of Spanish.

The fluff worked. I got accepted to college. Suckers!

Jenn says:

Kels, you bring shame to the Spanish Club…I was Spanish National Honor Society pres at my school and I did A LOT of work. But since we both got to put Spanish pres on our college applications, maybe I’m the sucker here (but a dignified sucker, thank you).

Kelsey says:

One time the Spanish Club went to Casa Rodriguez. I ordered a burrito. That’s the only thing I remember about Spanish Club. De nada muy mucho.

Let your voice be heard!
