Going to a small town high school has it's awesome & awkward moments.

Awesome- less people competing for student council.....Awkward - no one wants to vote for you cause they all know you are the local stoner hanging out at the "smokin' tree".

Awesome - the graduated seniors come back to visit cause they still live locally.....Awkward - the same guys that graduated have no jobs and are hitting on the sophomore girls during lunch.

Awesome- you know everyone.... Awkward- you KNOW everyone and everyone KNOWS you

That's how it was in my small town. A high school that had an average graduating class of 65 seniors.
My junior year a student transferred into our small town school from a school in Portland. This was the 80's and I am tellin' ya she was not sporting polo shirts, bell bottoms or feathered hair. Here she is

Uh, what is with that hair?
I remember meeting her and my goody two shoes self thought hmmmm.
I remember that year for Spirit Week she came to school looking like this:

Teens of the 80's we all knew Boy George :)

Kind of different, but as I got to know her and talk with her I thought she is a lot of fun! Marcy became my friend and we were in school plays together (Auntie Mame) classes together(College Prep, U.S. History) and genuinely became friends. Now after school she had way more fun on the weekends than I did . :) haha But during school we got along famously. I remember wanting to share my faith with her but I never really did. I was too nervous, afraid that she might not like me. We graduated in '86 and didn't really keep in touch. Ran into each other a few times. But two years ago we reconnected. Here is my lovely friend now :)
She has two children and lives in the same small town as me. Not far from where we went to high school. It is funny how teens work so hard to get away from home and end up coming back to their roots. :) We have become coworkers and both work for the same non profit agency. I have told her how I felt bad about not sharing my faith with her in high school  and she has reassured me that it was no big deal. That my friendship in the midst of her crazy teen years was enough. She now has faith and a belief in God all her own. Looking back I have learned that friendship and love to someone in the midst of searching for answers is the greatest answer you can give.
P.S. She gave me permission and the photo to post this. Marcy you are the BEST!
