Senior Year {2004}

I saw Sarah answer these questions about her high school days earlier this month and thought that it would be a fun post! I went to high school in Charlotte and really loved all 4 years of it!

1. did you date someone from your school?
No I didn't. But in college I dated a friend from high school.

2. did you marry someone from your high school?
Nope! Patrick isn't even from my home town!

3. did you car pool to school? 
Not usually. Occasionally before I got my license I would carpool with a neighbor but more often than not my mom would take and pick me up. Once I got my license I drove myself!

4. What kind of car did you have?
I had my dads forest green Jeep Grand Cherokee.

5. What kind of car do you have now?
A Tahoe. Total #momcar

6. its friday night. football games or party?
Football games, followed by meeting everyone at Ben and Jerrys and then usually a sleep over at my house.
7. It is Saturday night?
I was typically hanging out with friends, maybe going to dinner or a movie and then probably another sleep over at either my house or one of my girlfriends.

8. What kind of job did you have in high school?
I didn't work during the school year but each summer I was a camp counselor at Camp Hollymont. I wouldn't call this work because I went for years and years and some of my best friends today I met there!

9. What kind of job do you have now?
After college I was an elementary school teacher but after I had Jack in 2013 I became a stay at home mom!

10. Were you a party animal?
Nope. Not in the least.

11. Were you considered a flirt?

12. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?
None of them! It wasn't a requirement so I didn't do any!

13. Were you a nerd?
No, I don't think so!

14. Did you get suspended or expelled?
Never! I definitely was not a rule breaker in the least.

15. Can you sing the fight song?
I can't even remember if we had one! How sad is that.

16. Who was/were your favorite teachers?
I loved all my teachers, but my favorites were Mr. Taylor, who taught me math! He was everyones favorite! I also loved Mrs. Bard, Mrs. Clark..I really could go on!

17. Where did you sit during lunch?
I can't remember! I think it varied by day. Senior year we would sit outside or in the senior lounge.

18. What was your school's full name?
Providence Day School

19. When did you graduate?
2004.. Which I really can't believe it was that long ago! Some days I feel like I just graduated and can't believe I'm 31 with 2 of my own kids!

20. What was your school mascot?
The PDS Chargers!

21. If you could go back and do it again, would you?
Yes, I loved high school! I loved my friends, the teachers, other than the school work I really had the best time!

22. Did you have fun at prom?
Yes, I did! Prom was fun both my Junior and Senior year.

23. Do you still talk to the person you went to prom with?
I don't talk to them, but I do follow them on social media! It's fun to see what they are up to! Both are married now!

24. Are you planning on going to your next reunion?
If my girlfriends go I will probably go! My parents still live in my hometown and most of my girlfriends from high school live there so more than likely we will end up going.

25. Do you still talk to people from school? 
I do! I have a great group of high school girlfriends that I talk to frequently. We were just talking about planning a fun girls getaway weekend. It's fun to see how we have all gone through different stages of life since high school. Most of us are now married and several of us have had at least one baby. I'm so thankful for this group of girls and love that all these years later we are still close!

So I was trying to find some photos from high school but those were the days before iPhones and social media (gasp!)  so all I could find were some from our college days, which is probably a good thing. High school was full of awkward moments and terrible outfits! Also would you believe it but I am a natural blonde! My secret is finally out :) I didn't have one of us all together but

*Linking up with Beth and Jen


  1. This is so fun!! I love the pictures you found too. I may have to do this.

  2. Love this survey! I enjoyed high school but college was the best. Hands down I would go back and relive college over high school--I was too obsessed with my grades in high school and before I left for college, my mom made me promise to relax and live a little bit haha! Love that you're a natural blonde but dye your hair. I'm the opposite :)

  3. I couldn't recall our fight song either... I will say that I can only spell my hometown through chants because I was a cheerleader.

  4. I love that you're still so close to your girlfriends from high school - its something I wish I had!

    I love how we all remember the special teachers whose classes you looked forward to and who made a lasting impression on us. Such a testament to the value of teachers!

  5. What a fun post! Such a fun walk down memory lane!

  6. I am doing this post. I LOVE it. So fun getting to know the high school you!!!

  7. How fun it is to reminisce! I love that you are still close to high school friends, though I giggled a little when you mention 2004 being so long ago. I was already out of college by then! Isn't it incredible how quickly time flies? Thanks so much for sharing at the #happynowlinkup!

  8. What a fun idea! I'm totally doing this too! Love all the throwback pics as well. I had NO idea you were a natural blonde!!! I never would've guessed that!

  9. What a fun post! I have a high schooler now and ought to do something like this! I have no idea either if my school had a fight song.... #happynowlinkup

  10. Fun to re-live the glory days. I'm impressed you still keep in touch with anyone from high school!
