Class of 1997!!

Graduated from high school that year. Then I had 3 straight Fridays of bad luck: my car was totalled in an accident (the other guy's fault), i got appendicitis and had to have an emergency surgery whilst at a conference...my parents were two states away and had to give their consent over the phone...and I am one of those who hates doctors and needles with a virulent passion, and the last friday my parents and brothers headed back to Indonesia and I was 17 and alone in America. Moved to Minnesota knowing only 1 person and started college.

Definitely a big year for me.

I was a senior in high school- going to prom with Diemen (by the way D, if you attatch that picture, I'll kill you), singing all the time, and getting ready to go away to college.

Well damn...that's a good picture! And it's also the only high school pic I have on my 'puter. Ah well.

1997 - graduated high school in Oklahoma, went to prom in California with Pease (*picture two fabulously good looking people together in standard prom attire, with the standard fancy prom picture background* ), and then started college at the University of Oklahoma.

btw, some of these replies in here make me feel ancient. 5th grade in '97????

Oh please...your hair looks fine in that pic. besides, it was five years ago. You're allowed slack on any stylistic thing before college .

In 1997 I...

- packed up 15 years of my life in NYC and said goodbye to everyone and moved to the desert. I smoked a joint in the passenger seat of the Uhaul which my best friend was driving and had a nervous breakdown along with the first, one & only case of heartburn I've ever had

- then flew right back to NYC to attend Jeff Buckley's memorial service to say goodbye to him and had a nervous breakdown

- turned down PopMart tickets to opening night in Vegas because I was having a nervous breakdown

- had an affair with a younger man which led to a nervous breakdown

- hung out with my best friend who helped me through the nervous breakdown

So, um...it was a quiet year for me.
