Samii Ryan’s High School Memories
To be quite honest with all of you, I hated high school. My mom always told me it was the best 4 years of her life.. SIKE. For me it wasn’t that great. I had a good time during the summers freshman and sophmore year, but after that things went down hill. I had no friends after sophomore year and it sucked. I hated going to school, hated going to classes, lunch.. etc. I would usually hang out in the photography or art room with my two favorite teachers. Thank god Jill came into my high school and we hung out at lunch and drove to school together everyday. Le Sigh!!!
Well, going back to school I might as well share some memories with you haha. (Don’t worry guys, just because I didn’t have a good time in high school doesn’t mean you won’t too!!
Was the first day of High School as scary for you as “they” make it seem?
The first day of high school, I don’t think it was scary, more nerve wrecking. Well usually kids go from middle school to the same high school in there district, well not me. My sisters and I moved around 10 times and we ended up going to our rival school Pocono Mountain EAST for high school. Yeah because we were supposed to go to WEST. Like a west side story thing.. Ugh I hated being the new kid.
Did you have a favorite class? Least Favorite?
I loved art with Miss. Bozanka and digital photography with Mr. Steinruck! It was the two classes I could just be creative and have fun in. My least favorite class was math & history…Wrong side of the brain.
Any special memories from school Dances/ Prom/ Homecoming etc? Did you attend them?
I actually was in the running for homecoming queen even though I didn’t have any friends I think I was kinda popular? I got 3rd place I think.. LAME. I didn’t go to my prom, Josh & I went to Chilis and ice skating instead, it was magical!
What is the best advice you can give about these kids starting freshman year of High School this fall?
Be yourself, and never let people bully you or tell you what to do. People will like you for who you are, don’t change the way you are to fit in.
One thing you wish you knew then that you know now?
One thing I wish I knew then that I know how is I wish I never only had one best friend my whole life. After we stopped talking I had no one to talk to. It was pretty rough not having anyone. I let my guard down and it really hurt loosing someone so close to you. Thank god I had Josh.
Well I mean my high school memories might have sucked, but I put together a gallery full of some old photos with Meg & Jill, field trips to NYC for art class.. etc!
P.S. I was on the varsity soccer team, and varsity cheerleading team. I was the soccer captain and then they kicked me off for casting for Blue Valentine.. YEAH!
Enjoy High School & be YOURSELF!!!
