During my junior year, Fred—one of the Fantastic Four seniors a year ahead myself—discovered Wikipedia. He also discovered how to make new articles on Wikipedia.
does anyone from Holy Family know that you write/write about your past?
A few, yes.
Thanks Our pasts are pretty different (taught CCD from 7th & still went to Mass after) but there are some eerie similarities (graduating class of 14; class before had 4) & basically the same amount of pentup cynicism Q: has anyone looked at your past & said "you can't be a writer b/c you have no clue what REAL ppl are like, you sheltered catholic bitch." how would you respond to that other than "shut the fuck up, you don't know what the hell you're talking about" b/c seriously I get this so much
I’ve never gotten that, I don’t think, but it was sort of an anxiety of mine not too long ago. But it’s not something to worry about, IDK, because honestly, when you’re around such a small group of people for so long, you get to know each of them REALLY well, which can be way more useful than barely knowing/not knowing three hundred people in your grade.
And if someone didn’t buy that I’d just be like well, Emily Dickinson never left her house, and both Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters would be super sheltered by modern standards.
Tim Vargas had the extremely useful quality that he always wanted to do something. He always had get-rich quick schemes and unrealistic prank ideas.
It's been a while since you posted a story here! Which story is coming up next?
I was just thinking about this last night. I’m not sure. There’s a good scavenger hunt story I’ve been thinking of doing, as well as a prom or two.
What happened to Frost? He's listed as being in the grade ahead of you, but in Fredgate that class is down to just Paul, Ted, Hank, and Fred.
That class underwent some changes. They began as the Dirty Dozen, and then this one girl left halfway through their senior year and they became Ocean’s 11, and then after sophomore year five people left, but one came, so they were the Magnificent Seven, and then by the end of their junior year, three left, including Frost, who wanted to go to a public school to play on a real soccer team. Or something.
This is a story of lies, betrayal, and corruption.
I should note that I play only a very small role in this story.
It’s the story of the Inaugural Student Body Slash Senior Class President election, which occurred during my junior year of high school.
Okay, so you had some really EXCELLENT escapes... what about the pathetically horrible almost-escapes, or were y'all such cool cats that that never happened?
Ahem, of course we never got caught doing anything!
Wellllll, sometimes we got caught. There weren’t really many other “escapes” per se, on that kind of epic scale…. there were lots of times we ditched P.E. or study hall and sat in the chapel and got in trouble for that, but those aren’t really interesting stories, although I’m sure they’ll appear as portions of other stories.
Oh, there is one GREAT time that we got caught. That’s a great story, but it’s a part of the senior prank story, so when I get to the senior prank story, I’ll talk about that.
