    So, what highschool activities was everyone involved in????? You know, the main ones. Thought it would be a good conversation piece for the lounge.

    Lets see, mine was 4 years of both French Horn and Latin.......It wasnt till I had to fight for my country that I started bulking up...........anybody else?????

  2. back in the day, i was in band (played the flute), i was in color guard (twirled rifles- like taps, and sabors), i did cheerleading for the football season and softball 3rd base.

    nothing else really.......i sometimes did creative writting back in the day after school but thats because the teacher used to give me a bus pass to get on the bus if i wanted to eat lunch off campus after school hours lol.

    ah memories :( 4+ years later

    Yes, it was aimed at me my Smurf-like friend, but who cares?

    I was the Goalkeeper for my Primary School's football team and we went on to win a trophy in both years I played in goal. One of those years I was the Captain of the team, and the year I was Captain I only conceded 3 goals in the whole of the tournament.

    Played Hockey, also in goal - for some reason I have a good reaction time - in secondary and primary school. Didn't win anything here but the two teams weren't really that good since they only started the years when I started playing.

    I also played in football in goal for my secondary school team (though not as captain) and when I was in both year 10 and year 11 the team came 1st and 2nd in the country for those two years. In year 11 the team won the Lancashire and Yorkshire Regional on the way to losing in the final of the National Championship.

    Also played keyboard - got a near maximum grade for my compositional pieces on my Music course in secondary school - and was part of the "Gifted" courses although that wasn't really saying much considering the competition I had back then.

    Aside from that I skateboard (footage on my MySpace) and concentrate on my University Course in Chemistry.

    I was homeschooled for High School. No sports to be had.

    But then, I spent all my spare time reading SF, so I wasn't exactly going to be a jock anyway.

    I had no urge to wear anything representing my high school. I was small and pathetic. Our football team won maybe 5 games in the 4 years I was there. I have bowled from 7th grade til the present.

    In primary I played tennis for my school in an UK school competition.

    I got beaten in the quarter finals in the singles and got to the semi finals in the doubles.

    The last game was rather epic..

    The ball came over and it was REAAAALLY high up in the air and I just leaped up to get it and I swear it felt like I was 6 foot up in the air, then I hit the ball and landed and felt really pleased with myself, but then I was told my partner was surposed to hit it or something so they got the point.. and won :/

    Didn't do too bad considering it was like the second tournament I'd ever played in.

    In my comprehensive I tryed out for the football team now there was two girls and ALL the others were boys. The teachers said that girls could try out so we did, but the teacher who was choosing the teams was sexist :/

    So even though I tackled EVERYONE and kept up with all the boys, and tackled them and got the ball and all that jazz, even set up a couple of goals, I still didn't get on the team, simply because the coach was a sexist bastard.

    I also tried for about 2 years to get a girls basketball team, but they wouldn't :(
