The School and Year you graduated?
Maria Regina Diocesan High School, 1970
(I didn't turn eighteen for another three months)
Nickname in high school?
(sound based on my baptism name)
Sport you were into?
no sports.My school's trophies were almost all literary,
I was a life guard, though
Had a circle of friends?
yes, we were more or less the hippies
I loved English and Biology and History. I could do almost anything but Math without blinking, because of this, I can use a slide rule. I had trouble with Spanish after a really bad teacher who later repented of how she had treated us and passed us all without any second year skills when she found out they were going to let her transfer back to the convent in Venezuela she had spent the entire year moaning about leaving.
My favorite class?
English with Patricia Arnaz. History with T. (I turned him on to LoTR) Comparative Religion with twin nuns Srs. Ascension and Assumption
Math, because I was born in the era of old math - new math - oops, old math again. Chemistry because of a teacher with no patience for me trying to do the math (If they had had calculators then...)
A teacher you owe life lessons to?
P Arnaz - treated me as a student in class, but as a friend after, because "I was worth knowing."
