Go Panthers!

So along with last week...more high school stuff.

Was the Senior Dinner-Dance not the most fun dance ever? EVER! Only seniors allowed. No one from other schools. No dates. It was held at a hotel. All of a sudden all however many hundred seniors were best friends. Honestly, it was so fun.

And me...again with the perm. But worse than that...I was plagued with the flesh eating bacteria. Not joking. I was bit by a mosquito carrying a form of it and my face was rotting off. I love that so many pictures from the end of high school are sporting these lovely scabs. At this point, I had already been to the doctor and it was in remission. It was looking much better, but never the less, the scabs were horrific. I feel I always have to justify why I look awful.

Not to mention the lipstick...that's for you Mary Jane. What can I say? It was the 90's. I'm not the only one with all that lipstick.


There was a Senior Superlatives award ceremony. I was voted both Most Outgoing and Most Spirited from my class. Kyle Lane was the only other person to win two awards and they were the same two I won. It makes sense...they go hand in hand. I was on a high from that all night. Those kind of things were such a big deal to me. I honestly didn't know if I'd win anything. We had a large graduating class.

As I'm sitting here at my computer, Parker just asked me why I was smiling. I can't help it when I look at these pictures. I have such fun memories of that night. Really, probably the most fun I ever had in high school.

oh yeah...the "flesh eating bacteria." If there was ever any weird disease out there, you got it. Remember when we found out you were allergic to your own adreniline?

Everytime you post pictures, I always wonder where you got a camera in High School. I don't remember every buying you one or paying to have pictures developed but you sure seem to have a lot of them.

your high school pics crack me up! that dance was fun.. i think. i actually hardly remember it!

Man, I still have a good time going through my old Senior Dinner Dance pics. I went without my camera, but that was ok because they gave everyone their own little disposable one. I loved High School, but the Dinner Dance was the perfect capstone to it all.

My junior yr I had a flesh eating bacteria type thing but it was on my legs! Both of them and it covered them entirely. And of course during summer. It was awful.

YOu still look super cute though! I had a great time at my sr dinner dance too.

I totally don't remember the dance. isnt that sad? I remember we had it but I don't remember anything about it. I guess HIgh school just didn't mean that much to me...sad, huh? But then again, I can't barely remember what I did yesterday.....Is there a cure for memory loss?

What was i thinking being blonde? honestly. you look adorable as always.

I love listening to your high school stories. You are so fun, I think that's why college for me was the best because we were roommates.

Nicole said...

I love reading your h/s stories too! I didn't enjoy it as much as you but I wish I would have.

How neat to have such great memories of high school! I got to chaperone Gennifer's Senior Dinner Dance, and be on the commitee to put it on too. It was great fun!

That was a fun dance! And you're right... for that one night it's as if our entire class were friends. Crazy. And Traci... I can't believe you don't remember it!!!

I can't believe you actually had a flesh eating bacteria- just unreal! That had to be scary!! you really can't see it that well in the picture- I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't said anything. You probably notice more because you know it is there and you lived it.

Looks like an awesome dance! Our school didn't do anything like that. Good luck tomorrow- I will miss you guys but I will see you Monday!! :)

i remember having a lot of fun at the senior dinner dance too... I think that was the most fun I had a school function. :)

I am a bit jealous of your wonderful high school memories. I moved around so much that I did not have enough time in one high school to make such long lasting friendships! I always had a good time, but all these years later I dont remember a whole lot about it! It does not surprise me at all that you recieved both of those awards..I am sure you could still nab one today:)

Heidi said...

WOW... you REALLY did love your senior year. mine was good, but not amazing, how you seem to feel about yours.
You are such a cute girl Katie! Love that it all made you smile too!
