Happy Labor Day everybody! I’m still weekending on this long first weekend of September, but I’m linking up with Andrea and the girls at The Blended Blog for their TBB Asks Back-To-School-Edition! So I hope you enjoy these questions that will take you on a little trip down memory lane!
- Did you love school or hate it?
Even though I groaned about having to wake up early, I really did love school. I loved getting new clothes and all of the new school supplies too!
- Start school before or after Labor Day?
In Texas we always started school before Labor Day. Things have changed a little bit since I was in school, but we always started early August and got out of school way before Memorial Day. Now the kids normally start late August, still before Labor Day and get out closer to Memorial Day, sometimes afterwards.
- Wake up: eager beaver or slow poke?
I definitely was a lot easier to wake up when I was younger than I am now, although I definitely think that part of my problem now is that I have social media to look at when I wake up in the morning.
- Favorite breakfast?
I’m not a huge breakfast person at all, so I usually just stuck with cereal or toast for breakfast during school. That being said, if I’m going to eat breakfast, I’m always going to go for breakfast tacos because they’re the best!
- Favorite cereal?
Frosted Mini Wheats or Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
- School uniform or no school uniform?
We had those amazing school uniforms that included the pleated skirts…
- New outfit for first day or no?
When we didn’t have uniforms we always had a new outfit for school, and my mom always took a picture of us on the first day.
- Walk to school or ride the bus?
In Elementary School we always walked to school since we weren’t on a bus route, but when I started going to private school they didn’t have a bus route so my dad would drop me off.
- Backpack, tote or messenger bag?
Always a backpack, even in college!
- Eat school lunch or pack lunch?
I had a pretty good mix of both, but usually my mom would pack my lunch 3 or 4 days a week and then normally I’d get pizza on Fridays.
- Remember the little milk cartons? White or chocolate?
Yes! And I’m a white milk girl always!
- Paper bag or lunch box?
Lunch box! It was always so much fun to get to pick out a new one every year!
- Favorite thing to do at recess?
We always used to play games with each other which included a lot of tag.
- Favorite back to school supply item?
I always loved new markers and colored pencils.
- Chalkboard or dry erase marker?
Dry erase markers. I hated the mess that chalk made.
- Regular pencil or mechanical?
- Homework as soon as you got home or afternoon?
I’m still a little bit of a procrastinator, but I usually tried to get my homework done after I got home from school. If it was writing a paper, I usually got that done closer to the due date.
- Favorite after school snack?
Those Little Debbie’s Cosmic Brownies
- Favorite after school show?
My sister always loved to watch Doug and Rugrats after school!
- Favorite subject in school?
Math, I am an accountant!
- Least favorite school subject?
I was never a huge fan of science.
- Name of your best friend in high school?
- High school mascot type?
We were the Cougars
- SAT or ACT?
I took both, but did way better on the SAT since I forgot my calculator for the ACT.
- Favorite year in school?
My senior year! It was so much fun, and I couldn’t wait for college!
- Class Ring or no Class Ring?
I got a class ring, but I didn’t wear it after high school. I still wear my college ring, but that’s because the Aggie Ring is kind of a big deal.
- Attend or not attend high school reunion?
I have not attended any high school reunions. I don’t really keep in contact with that many people from school.
And there you have it! Are any of your answers similar to mine? Did you look forward to school starting?
