Unbelievable, I know. But I was there and did, in fact, graduate.
I'm sure you are all very skeptical of this, so I am going to share with you "High School Alison." An Alison from 5+ years ago. Seriously, how does time go that fast?
|Please refrain from giggling until you've reached the end. Ah, whatever. Giggle all you want :)|
First off, you must know that I was a huge band nerd. I lived in the band room (minus freshman year when I was still figuring things out). My friends and I, when we could, would eat lunch in the band room with our band director.
Some proof of my nerdiness. My friends and I became the "3 BG's" - meaning 3 band geeks - and made ourselves some awesome t-shirts with our little "cheer".
I was involved in jazz band, pep band, a musical pit (at a totally different school), and summer jazz camps.
School colors were green and gold and this was spirit day. That's why our faces were painted and we're wearing silly outfits.
My Friday nights/weekends involved movie nights and bonfires. You should also know that my friends and I never drank. We never really swore either. We just hung out and got high on life, dude.
My best friend lived in the country and they had a big gravel pit so we could have big bonfires if we so desired.
My best friend and I made puppy chow ALL. THE. TIME. I don't know why we did, but we were addicted. Most of the time someone would end up throwing it during the movie and we'd find it weeks later under couch cushions.
|See all that chex mix? Serious sugar coming.|
I was also involved in golf the last three years of high school. Unfortunately I only have one picture of me golfing. You get the idea, though.
|Not a very good picture, but at least I have a ball and club!|
My friends and I were also very crazy. We would wander around stores taking funny pictures and planned a couple of new year's eve parties that were very fun and non-alcoholic, of course.
My best friend and I went to prom and tolo together. Once we went as each others' dates.
I had short hair most of my high school career and even did the whole bleach blonde on top with dark underneath.
I even graduated from high school and left to go to college across the mountains. You'll get some fun pictures from that time later, promise.
There you have it. High School Alison. And a major photo dump. I hope you enjoyed looking at a younger me! Maybe I'll scan some older ones for you to giggle over.
