WWTK -- Back to high school

I know, I know, I'm a day late, again ... hey, I live on the other side of the world.

This week Kensie and Scriptor wants to know all about high school.

1.) How were you as a student?

Mmh lets just say that if I were to go back to school today, knowing what I know now, I probably would have worked a little harder. I was not the worst student but I was by no means a straight A student.
2.) What was your favorite subject and did you excel in it?
English & Geography - Loathed Math, still suck at it.
3.) What - if any - is your fondest school years memory? 
I have loads of good memories from high school. That is, after all when I finally met Himself. But I went to a really small school, on a farm so everyone knew everyone. Plus we got into loads of trouble for some rather innocent pranks and behaviour.

This photo was taken my last year of high school - it is the entire school plus staff. I'm in the top row

4.) Did you attend college and if so, how was that experience?
I did not. Was accepted for teachers training but before I got there things changed and I never did go.
5.) Would you go back to school - be it in person or online - if you could? (Or to earn another degree?)
I have thought about doing it quite a bit over the years but we've either never had the funds for it or just not the time. Plus, someone in our house needs to hold down a 'normal' 9 - 5 job

Now, if you haven't yet linked up do, it's fun.


  1. Eh, for the most part, math is useless anyway! Thanks for linking up.

  2. I hate math too! I am terrible at it.

  3. that was fun to read - Math is also NOT my strong suit. I didn't know you met hubby in high school!! cute :)

  4. Wow, you went to a tiny school! I think smaller is better. Here in the US, the number one job of public schools is crowd control! I was late to the party, too! ;P

  5. I graduated with 1300 people....just in my senior class. A bit different than yours!

  6. I never cared for Math myself. Small is good, but when I ended up in high school, I went to the largest in the state (Iowa), one of 5 high schools. I ended up graduating with 862 people...sadly, you don't know everyone when you graduate, some you may know just by face. Small is much better.

  7. That is a very little school! Prob like the size of Lexie's where every grade only has 30 students. I wish I'd tried a little harder in high school, too. :o/

  8. That is a really small school! My senior class was at least three times as large!

  9. I liked reading about your thoughts on school, I agree a pretty small school

  10. Heya i'm for the first time here. I found this board and I find It really helpful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to present something back and help others like you helped me.

    Here is my web page;

  11. I recognize that place and some of the staff! I went to school there, too. :)
