Sunday Social (38)

Linking up with Ashley and Neely for the Sunday Social

For secondary school I went to a grammar school and was at the same school for seven years. As far as I can tell middle school roughly equates to being a junior (11-14) at the Grammar School and high school being a senior (14-18).
  • What was your biggest middle school fashion mistake?
    Happily at most UK schools, mine included you have to wear a uniform. Unhappily ours was hideous and therefore probably counts as a fashion mistake. Let's face it though, it was the 80s; apart from my penchant for dyeing my hair pretty much clothes generally were a fashion mistake.
    Hair also a mistake!
  • Who were your best friends in high school? Pics?
    I still know my best friends from that bit of my life. For the sixth form you got to request your classmates, so most of my best friends were in my 'home-room'. A few of my best friends didn't go to the same school as me, we knew each other from Church/Youth club. I'm not sure that I should post pictures of any of them - they might kill me (it's that fashion thing again)! Also some of them have kids old enough to surf the net now!
  • What was a typical weekend like for you in high school?
    Dull. I wasn't much one for going out really. I never went to any of the night clubs that were famous with the kids of our area, and only sometimes went to the pub. Mostly I stayed at home and read or practised my music (told you, dull!).
  • Did you have any boyfriends/girlfriends? Tell us about that.
    Not really. I was a late developer! I had my first boyfriend when I was in my last year of senior school. We had absolutely nothing in common and had met at a friend's birthday party. We did have some nice dates, and hopefully he found a better romantic interest! We went out for about 6 months and then when school finished so did we.
  • Did you have any secret codes with your friends? Spill your secrets!
    Not that I can remember. How dull!
  • If you could relive one day/moment/experience from middle school or high school, what would it be?
    I'm not sure that I would. I found secondary school quite a difficult period in my life. I made some life-long friends, and had a good education (which I wish I had paid better attention to) - but no moments stand out that I'd want to have back. It's more the bad ones that I can recollect, and once was enough for them!
