I miss going to different conferences and being able to represent my class for various events due to my GPA which was and is still 4.0. Go on and say it,"teacher's pet" and I wear it proudly!!!! 🙂

I miss driving my Computer Science teacher's Lincoln Continental all around town when she would send me and a few of my friends out on errands to get her some KFC chicken for lunch. Oh, and sometimes when she had to leave for an emergency, she would let me take over the day's lesson plan (yep, I was a geek back then 🙂

I miss my science classes and two of my English classes. I also greatly miss the new episode each week of Star Trek: TNG! That was the highlight of my week.

I miss the wonderful weather in NC. Autumn was a time to reunite with my friends. I remember laugher, my friends and my teachers. I had great teachers that were truly interested in helping us learn and succeed in life. Life was simple back then.

I went to a Swiss Boarding School, graduating class of 3. Miss the tiny village!

Nothing! well, art class only!!

I've always said the only people in the world who understand me are the kids I grew up with. They'll always be my closest friends even though I haven't seen some of them for 30 years. Most people can't relate to growing up in the middle of farmland USA. Driving to school in the 8th grade doesn't happen in most places. haha

I can relate! I grew up in Nebraska 🙂

Field trips and Friday Night Lights with the Pep Squad, cheering for our Villanovans.

absolutely nothing - graduation day was the best part of the high school experience

Lots of things! Mostly the friendships, but I also miss my cheerleading days.
