Quick Flashback to Senior Year

In my mom's group, people are posting their senior pictures, so after I uploaded mine, I figured I'd share it here.  I was in the class of 1999.  Gasp!  I know!  It sounds like an eternity ago!

I have 5 different senior pictures, or something crazy like that, but this is the one I uploaded, so this is the one you get.  I had so much fun taking these.  And I ran into someone later in life that said they saw my picture in a flyer, but I don't know that for sure.  Kind of cool if it happened.  It wasn't this one, though, it was a black and white.

Anyway, senior year.   I was actually tan for once in my life because I cooked at night at BW-3 (now Buffalo Wild Wings) and then during the day I'd sleep on the deck.  Yes, it takes me that many hours of sunlight to not look like a vampire.  That was probably my favorite job ever.  We had a lot of fun, I really love to cook, and, even if the hours were bizarre and I didn't get to go out much, I still enjoyed the night shift.  I'd work from 5pm until close, which normally meant that I'd get off as early as midnight if I wasn't the closer, 2 am if it had been dead and we could clean before it actually closed, or between 3-6 am if it was a rough night.  Not surprisingly, my parents encouraged me to stop working there by October of my senior year because the hours were hurting my schoolwork.

During senior year, I was pretty typical.  I had such senioritis, had already been accepted into colleges, and was just having fun.  I was SOOOOO ready to move on, but thinking back I enjoyed my time there, too.  Isn't that always the way? 

What are your senior year memories?


  1. I was class of 1999 too! Oh my god, are we old now? Scary. I was cool and joined band my senior year so I could be near my future husband. It doesn't feel that long ago, but I sure like life now a whole lot better :)

  2. An eternity huh? LOL! I graduated in '94. My husband is EVEN OLDER. I like to tell him I caught his "old" by osmosis because I was nice and young when we met.

  3. I LOVE flashback photos. PS- nice bangs :) I had some too lol

    I was class of 2001!
