    Just wondering what Macrumors community did in high school for fun or what you parents forced you to do.

    For sports I run cross country and track.

    For the academic side im on the class treasurer and a student guide

    All them are fun and Im happy that my parents dont force me to do anything so what did you do?

    I did Wrestling and Baseball All Four years.

    Baseball was fairly easy not too much work, but Wrestling is by the hardest sport I have ever done, especially when you have to cut weight.

    Has anyone else done wrestling that can back me up?

    A lot of track work - mainly sprinting, but really anything up to 400m. :)

    I still do it quite a bit, it pays pretty well. I didn't actually get into Macs fully until after highschool. I wasn't a geek then, but things change... :D

    not in the traditional sense but i know what you mean. plus a good friend of mine was into wrestling (in school) for a while and he said it was harder than most people gave credit for. i think he just wanted to tackle me, which he succeeded in once via element of surprise, he was so proud to take down a near black belt (i was almost there at the time, red with a black stripe) i just thought the outfits were funny :D wrestling :p - but i got teased too (for: ) "fighting in your pajamas" :D hahaha

    I totally HATED and LOATHED high school.
    I think freshman year I was the V.P. of the horticulture club (I was a stoner).
    Being a stoner was the only way that I was able to make it through H.S. and living in the midwest.
    I got my first job at 15, I wanted to flee the midwest ASAP, whatever it took.
    After graduating, I worked two jobs for a year, and fled to California.

    Many felt the same way that I did, one girl and her boyfriend robbed a local bank after graduation so that they could get out of the midwest, they were quickly busted. A lot of others became heroin junkies.

    God i really want to get out of the Midwest ASAP. The only place in the Midwest I can really stand is Chicago or NYC. The part where I live I just cant stand the way some people think. There way to arrogent and closed minded.

    Duff-Man says...absolutely none. I had no use for the place and the last thing I wanted to do was spend any more time there (or with the people) than I had to. It was only after I graduated and started in the "real world" that my education really began....oh yeah!

    I don't know either. I'm not sure my school has a gov't...we've never had elections or anything.

    The highest athletic achievement possible: high school table tennis champ! Oddly, they didn't give me a school letter to put on my jacket. :confused:

    Also president of the computer class, trumpet player in the marching band and orchestra (even had a solo in the spring musical), and publisher of my own humor newspaper.

    Hey, I used to be cool! I wonder what ever happened to me?

    Marching band all 4 years - played trumpet. We were the best high school band in California for halftime shows at the time. We won all the competitions we entered in So Cal, then traveled up to the northern part of the state and beat the bands in a competition up there - which really surprised us. We did LA Rams, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers halftime gigs + the Rose Parade a few times. It was a blast. The Letterette's (flag girls) were hotties :p

    Also, jazz band, tennis (first team all league + league champs my senior year) and football (my sophmore year). Great time of my life, but so long ago :D

    If by NYC you mean New York City then i think you are slightly confused as to what the midwest is. :)

    Well anyway, I'll be a senior in HS in a few weeks. For sports I do Cross Country and Track (I did wrestling in 7th grade and I totally agree that it is very difficult), and I work on crew for the winter play. I'm also one of two editors of the Yearbook , which takes up insane amounts of time - I spent 30 hours at school last week finishing up last year's yearbook :( (last years seniors didn't finish it on time) (well at least we work on macs) :D
    Random other assorted clubs and stuff....
