High School Tag


1. DID YOU DATE SOMEONE FROM YOUR SCHOOL?

Kinda! Luke Austin was his name but he was home schooled for everything but choir. His dad was one of the councilors and did some magic to allow his son to take choir classes!

2.WHAT KIND OF CAR DID YOU DRIVE?

That depended on what car my parents had available. Mostly the Honda Civic.

3. DID YOU PASS YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE TEST YOUR FIRST TRY?

How could you not? Of course I did!

4. WHERE YOU A PARTY ANIMAL?

Not at all. I had no social life what so ever!

5. WERE YOU CONSIDERED A FLIRT?

Not really.

6. WERE YOU IN BAND, ORCHESTRA, OR CHOIR?

Choir. I was in the top choir all 4 years. I was in the show choir for 3 of those years. You could say that I was pretty awesome. One of the top soloists!!!

7. WERE YOU A NERD/GEEK?

I don't know the difference actually. I was kinda a neutral student.

8. WERE YOU ON ANY VARSITY TEAMS?

No....but I was in a ballet company that took up most of my life. I would love to go back and dance again. It was one of the highlights of my existence.

9. DID YOU EVER GET SUSPENDED/EXPELLED?

Not even close. I was a good student. Always did my homework and studied for my tests.

10. CAN YOU STILL SING THE FIGHT SONG?

Never learned it.

11. WHO WERE YOUR FAVORITE TEACHERS?

I graduated 6 years ago. I don't think I can remember any of my teachers names. I liked my Pre-Cal teacher and my choir directors Mr. Rabon and Mr. Weir.

12. WHERE DID YOU SIT FOR LUNCH?

I didn't eat lunch. I had early release and would eat when I got home.

13. WHAT IS YOUR SCHOOL'S FULL NAME?

Humble High School

14. WHAT IS YOUR SCHOOL'S MASCOT AND COLORS?

Go Wildcats!! The colors were purple, gray and white.

15. DID YOU GO TO HOMECOMING AND WITH WHO?

N
ever cared to go. That's a lie. No one ever asked me! I was too busy dancing my butt of to go.

16. IF YOU COULD GO BACK AND DO IT AGAIN WOULD YOU?

A part of me wants to because I look so much better now. Boys might have asked me out if I looked the way I look now then.

17. WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER MOST ABOUT GRADUATION?

I graduated on a Sunday! Kinda sucked actually. My family never owned a camera and they forgot to buy a disposable one. My parents didn't want to spend money on the Sabbath so we have no memories photographed from that day.

18. WHERE DID YOU GO SENIOR SKIP DAY?

To school. I didn't want any make up work!

19. WERE YOU IN ANY CLUBS?

Not exactly. Does KDT (the ballet company count)?

20. HAVE YOU GAINED SOME WEIGHT SINCE THEN?

Remember I said I graduated 6 years ago. Of course I've gained some. About 10 lbs or maybe less. Let me say that I wear a size zero. That 10 lbs was necessary. I've filled out since High School!

21. WHO WAS YOUR PROM DATE?

Johnny Flores!

22. ARE YOU PLANNING ON GOING TO YOUR 10 YEAR REUNION?

Never got invited to my 5th. I probably wouldn't go anyway!

23. DID YOU HAVE A JOB IN HIGH SCHOOL?

Didn't have time for one. I danced at the studio 4 days a week, taught at the studio 2 days a week and around Christmas time I had extra rehearsals on that 7th day of the week.

So I thought it would be neat to show some of my High School Pics so people can get a look of my High School life. Warning: Most of the pictures are of ballet!!!!

Arabesque: One of the basic poses in contemporary classical ballet. There are four; 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th arabesques.
Attitude: A pose on one leg with the other lifted at a 90-degree angle (similar to arabesque) with knee bent and not dropped. Arms are to corresponding leg. Bent knee allows body to bend and turn.Kimberly, Emily, Me and Lauren
*My three best friends in High School*
They were so sweet and came to support me while I performed in the Musical Oklahoma. It is sweet because they went to the rival high school. (Except Lauren...she was in the 8th grade)

Wow. Thanks for all the pics. It was cool to look through them all. You must have had some major leg muscle.
