Linking up with TBB for TBB Asks again. The end of summer is here. September is all about school. It has been a long time since I got to do any back to school shopping. While I was a ball of nerves the first day, I loved the actual prep for it.
1.Did you love school or hate it?
Even though I did very well throughout school, I wasn’t a big fan. Kids are assholes.
2. Start school before or after Labor Day?
When I was in elementary school in Pennsylvania, it was always after Labor Day. By the time we lived in Georgia when I was in high school, we were starting around my birthday in mid-August.
3.Wake up: Eager Beaver or Slow Poke?
I definitely remember hitting the snooze button many times or telling my mom to go away.
4. Favorite Breakfast?
I loved French Toast but mostly ate cereal because it was quick.
5. Favorite Cereal?
6.School uniform or no school uniform?
7.New outfit for the first day of school or no?
Always yes! I loved picking out my school supplies and clothes for the school year. My mom always took us shopping. Choosing your first day outfit was the most important thing, was it not? It set your tone for the rest of the school year!
8. Walk to school or ride the bus?
I rode the bus every year until I could drive my junior year.
9. Backpack, tote or messenger bag?
Most years it was a Jansport backpack. I tried to make a messenger bag a thing for awhile, but always ended up back with a backpack.
10. Eat school lunch or pack lunch?
98% of the time I brought my lunch. Every once in awhile I would buy, but hardly ever.
11. Remember the little milk cartons? White or chocolate?
Since I packed my lunch, I didn’t really get the milk cartons at school. If I did, it was always chocolate. I wasn’t a big milk drinker. I preferred water bottles, juice boxes or capri suns.
12.Paper bag or lunch box?
Both. When I was younger it was a lunch box, when I got to high school it was mostly paper bag.
13. Favorite thing to do at recess?
Hmmm I don’t remember much about recess. Maybe swing?
14. Favorite back to school supply item?
Writing utensils! I loved picking my pens and pencils out.
15.Chalkboard or dry erase board?
When I was in elementary school, it was always chalk boards. I think in high school is when the dry erase boards took over all our classrooms.
16. Regular or mechanical pencil?
Mechanical! Who has time to keep regular ones sharpened?
17. Homework as soon as you get home or after dinner?
I really don’t remember this either. I know I always got it done.
18. Favorite after school snack?
fruit or celery and peanut butter
19. Favorite after school show?
My sister and I watched a lot of Nick.
20. Favorite subject in school?
21. Least favorite school subject.
Geometry was the absolute worst!!!! And often times, I was bored during history.
22. Name of your best friend in high school.
23. High school mascot.
I was a Wildcat for the first year and a half, then an Eagle when we moved to Georgia the middle of my sophomore year.
24. SAT or ACT
I took the SAT. Funny story, my first day at my new school in Georgia was the day they were taking the SAT practice test. Talk about getting thrown to the wolves, right???
25. Favorite year in school.
My middle school days. I went to a smaller school in Missouri then and I had such a great group of friends, was super involved in activities and just remember having a lot of fun.
26. Class ring or no class ring?
I had a class ring with my graduation year on one side, and my flute on the other. My birthstone was the stone instead of the school color.
27. Attend or not attend high school reunions?
Not attend. When I graduated high school, I had only been in school with those kids for two and a half years. I didn’t grow up with them. It was such a huge school, over 1,000 people in my graduating class. I care nothing about going to the reunions. Honestly, I only follow a select few people from high school on Facebook and haven’t seen any of them in years since I don’t even live in the same state.
I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend!!! I will be back tomorrow with weekend shenanigans!
