I would do it again.
High school that is.
My memories are packed full of sentiment and warmth.
- I dated a swell guy from 10th to senior year, Mike Laurence. We used to pass love notes between periods that said we'd always be together... and in a way, we still are, even if it's just a long-lasting friendship...
- although, it was my best friend Bridget and I who were voted best couple.
- A's didn't come easy, but they came nonetheless.
- So did opportunities to build self-esteem, like when I added class v.p. to my academia activities. Or when I discovered my chicken legs were built for sprinting. And I beat the 6-foot-tall German exchange student at the 100 meter dash.
Yeah, I would do it again. For sure.
And, I'd do it the same.
For me, high school wasn't a matter of surviving pre-calculus or the SATs. It wasn't being proud of the undefeated football team (we didn't have a football field or any other bells and whistles to boast about).
It was a matter of learning I was special.
Duanesburg High gave me that. What did high school give you?
