1. What was your high school decade?
I went to high school in the 80's. It counts from Form 1 (1983) to Form 5 (1987).
2. Are you still friends with your high school friends?
Sadly no. I have lost touch with all of my high school friends. I have not kept in touch with any of them and neither are there any high school reunion that I go to. I am not sure if that is even a practice here in the first place.
3. What was your favorite thing about high school?
I would say joining the uniform society. I was active in the St. John's Ambulance and there were lots of activities to attend to. We have foot drill in the hot sun in our uniforms, some girls actually fainted instead of assisting others. We participated in mock accidents and how to attend to injured casualties. We learned nursing skills like bandaging, made slings and tourniquets to stop bleeding, made hospital beds solo or with a partner, took tests and went for competition. That was fun. I was even on duty at a real religious festival celebrated here in Malaysia where there are many folks cramped in a cave. So we St. John's Ambulance were called in to assist those who fainted or had injured themselves.
4. Your least favorite?
Dissecting frog and insect at biology lessons. Ewww...I was praying hard that I wouldn't get such assignments for the real exam. My prayer was answered. Phew!
5. Did you have a high school sweetheart? And how did that work out?!
Yes, I had. Even though I was in an all girls' school, I managed to get to know a guy through these gatherings of uniform society members. He was a scout. So we met at one such gatherings and both our schools also organized outdoor trips. We dated for a few months and I was not ready to go further. I broke it off.
6. Would you do the whole high school thing again, or is it better left in the past?!
I would go through it again if I had the choice minus the dissecting frog or insect part.
