let me tell you a bit about high school roxy. my parents kept me extremely sheltered, which is possibly why i was so active in school organizations. i lettered in academics, choir, and a program called pals. maybe i have always been a dork… 🙂
while i was trying [and sometimes failing…obviously] to hide the camera remote, i found a small loot in my pocket!
i have no idea where the “i’m taken” from georgia came from…but things i can tell you about-
one of the main activities my friends and i partook: trips to the movies. hence a zoolander ticket stub from 2001. [technically i had just started my freshman year of college…oops!] sometimes we even saw two movies in a day. and paid for both! i was too much of a square to sneak in. 🙂
tangent: before daniel and i were dating, he worked in a movie theater. i remember going to see a movie or 2 just so i could hang with him. <3
the little pencil is also relevant to one of my high school activities: putt putt. i was always so terrible! but who really payed attention anyway? it was all about hanging out and goofing off with your friends. i feel old thinking about how much more interactive friends were. no cell phone distractions. at least not until senior year. 🙂
singing was also a huge part of my life. i was in choir all 4 years [and competed], took voice lessons, and sang at macaroni grill. 99% of the time i sang happy birthday in italian – all classical and stuff. one time a woman requested a disney song for her daughter – it was a lot of fun. especially since i had been working on “once upon a dream” for an upcoming choir show. 🙂 i really miss practicing over and over in my bedroom. each little part until i got it right.
you know what else was a lot of fun? community service for the organizations i was a part of. i got to spend time with friends, meet new people, and do things i might not ever do otherwise. some of my most fun volunteer activities include earth day festivals and international festivals. 🙂
