Saw this over at the Inn of the Last Home
and thought it looked fun.How many schools did you go to?My father was career military, so between moves and the natural changing of schools, I went to 11 before I went to the greatness that is UT. Teacher's nightmare or teacher's pet?I was fairly well behaved. A lot of it was that I had this weird nuerosis that went like this: I'd misbehave so the teacher or school would call my mom. She wouldn't believe them becuase, well, I was a sweet little angel. So, they'd tell her--why don't you come hide in the coat closet and see what he's really like...and she would and I'd act up and she'd come out and be horribly upset with me. Did you have a label in school? (nerd, jock,etc)I was kind of a geek...(huge shock, I know). But what else you gonna call the guy who loves Star Trek and Dr Who. What’s the biggest rule you broke in school?Shamefully one time in the 4th grade a girl shoved me and I hit her back. She cried, we got hauled to the vice-principals office and my parents got called. I wasn't supsended but I still get that sick feeling in my stomach thinking about it....Were you in any clubs or organizations?I was on the newspaper staff, I did Key Club and a couple of others. Did you have any nicknames in school?Yes I did and wild horses couldn't drag it out of me....Three subjects you enjoyed?1. Science in 8th grade (mainly had to do with the teacher)
3. Journalism Three teachers who inspired you?1. Mr. Miller (the 8th grade science teacher referred to above)
2. Mr. Dombrowski, my fifth grade teacher
3. "Doc" McPhearson Would you go back and do it over?Somedays I might, but others I am glad to be a grown-up. Let me say I'd only go back if I could back to when I was growing up. I wouldn't want to be in h.s. and face the pressures and situations today's teens face. It's just scary sometimes to sit back and think about ...Any major fashion faux paus? Bonus for pics!!I had one of those t-shirts that changed colors based on body heat. I loved it and thought I was too cool for school. I also had a Bart Simpson shirt for UT that said, "Eat my shorts" or something like that...I thought it was awesome. I also had a classic Star Trek t-shirt I'd wear on occasion...
