Sunday Five - Classmates
I sometimes wonder what happened to some of my high school classmates, and likely they wonder what ever happened to me. Probably not what they would have predicted, hence this weeks Sunday five.
1: What line of work would did your classmates in high school think you would do?
2: Where did your classmates assume you would end up living?
3: If your classmates voted you most likely to? What was it that they thought you were most likely to become or do?
4: How many children did they assume you would have?
5: Did your classmates believe that you would finish more education?
1: What line of work would did your classmates in high school think you would do? Everyone assumed that I would be a photographer. I made a living for a couple of years, then moved on.
2: Where did your classmates assume you would end up living? I split high school between Michigan and Florida, both assumed I would stay in Florida, and I did for 18 years.
3: If your classmates voted you most likely to? What was it that they thought you were most likely to become or do? I think I was most likely to be boring.
4: How many children did they assume you would have? At least two, I have none.
5: Did your classmates believe that you would finish more education? Most of them did, I have talked with them and they remark about how smart I was. I didn't think I was smart or would go on. It was a few years later that I realized that I could do many things if I applied myself.

1) I haven’t a clue, they couldn’t figure this queen out.ReplyDelete
2) They thought I’d stay in my hometown in Virginia as I was quite proud of that little place.
3) I was voted Preppy-est dresser, they thought I’d become the gayest man ever.
4) None, see answer to #3.
5) Yes they thought I’d go on to obtain a degree and they never imagined me flunking out, which I did.
1. I have no idea--probably a teacher, which was true.ReplyDelete
2. No idea--I guess I can't remember ever talking to anyone about the future.
3. I wouldn't have been voted anything. I was one of 624--hard to stand out. I WAS one of four commencement speakers, but not because of grades--we had to try out. I was shocked to learn I had been chosen.
4. No idea.
5. Most definitely.
