I was a freshman in college and very worried about my grades because my parents were paying my tuition and told me if I didn't do well I would have to pay the tuition myself. I really wanted them to know I took this expensive education seriouly.
I had a really cool english teacher who was pretty casual about things. He was getting ready to test us on grammer principles and things relating to that. He went over the review and kept telling the class we didn't need to study because the information was so basic that 1st grades could wing it.
When I got home I went over the materials and burst into tears because it looked so difficult to me. I thought about what an idiot I was that 1st grade material look extremely hard. I was so scared about looking completely stupid in clas,s so I studied for 3 days, staying up until the wee hours memorizing the info. My friends all talked about how relieved they were to have one less thing to study for thanks to our wonderful english teacher. I didn't say a thing.
Well, testing day arrived and I felt confident I had finally mastered first grade grammer that somehow I missed way back in first grade. I wizzed through the test and was so relieved that no one would find out what a dumb blonde I really was.
The following day the results were in! Much to my shock I was the ONLY person to even pass the test! I got 100% while eveyone else failed. The teacher thought I was brillant. He couldn' understand why no one else passed. Maybe because he told us not to study? Anyway, I learned it never hurts to study even basic things in life.

In the Spring of 1997, I played a character named Sarah Brown in the high school musical "Guys and Dolls".  Noel was also in the musical...  along with his friend Todd (the guy who thought I had bad B.O.)

Anyway, I was required to do a few kissing scenes with a guy named Rick Davies, and since Noel and I had been going out for a couple months, he was very uncomfortable with this.

One night, during a live performance, Rick starts moving his lips around and kissing me for real!  I was stunned!  He was a great kisser and had very soft lips (ha, ha... just kidding Noel)

Once the scene ended, Rick started telling everyone about the kiss.  He said it was an accident.  He, apparently, wasn't thinking and it just happened. 

Noel found out and decided to take matters in to his own hands.  He started yelling at Rick.  I wasn't there, so I'm not sure exactly what happened, but I heard that Noel actually said "Three

The Beast. This is one of many times I almost lost my beast of a car. For those who never seen my car let me describe it for you. It was a 1984 Buick LeSabre. Literally a box on wheel. Fit 3 people in the front and 4 or 5 people in the back. Comfortably. And I?m sure like 5 bodies in the trunk. ? not that I tried or anything?.hehehe..Well In the winter it became my 1000 lbs sled as I attempted to stay on the road.
Well on this particular day we wanted to go sledding so we drove down to the lake were the best hill in the area was. Of course, rather then park a safe distance away I parked right on the hill and slid down into a snow bank. Being the bright guy that I was, I figure if I floored it I could get out. Well it turns out when you floor a rear wheel drive car on ice it just fish tails all over the place. This not only took me out of the snow bank, but brought me inches from the edge of a cliff which was just over the lake. I thought I was done for. My . . . Read More..

It was the end of my senior year of high school, I was 18 -years-old. A little background: I moved to Springfield in October of my senior year because my dad got transferred from his job. I was pretty fine with the move because for one thing, I had moved alot in my life, I didn't care for the small town of Kirksville, Missouri we moved from, and I loved meeting new people.
I was sitting at home bored one Friday afternoon and thought I would call my girlfriend Julie and see what she was up to. At this point I had never met Jeff, but he answered Julie's phone with "Hi, you have reached Boston Market, Julie speaking." I was really puzzled and told him I had the wrong number. Jeff laughed and told me he would get Julie on the phone for me. When Julie answered she told me that her friend Jeff was over and he was joking around. Julie told me she was going to the movies with her boyfriend Jake, and their friend, Jeff, and she invited me to join them.

This would not be a big deal, but the math teacher used to hate and
refused to allow any jackets in the room, even though it was kind of
cold in there once and a while.

She was going along teaching, when she basically tripped a little and
picked it up..

The jacket obviously was mine and had my name on it.

Kevin and Dave Clingan just laughed and laughed.

We used to do other things in that class like always would call on
each other. If you answer a question right, you picked the next
person to answer.

Kev would always reply "CLINGAN!!!" in such a funny manner.
