The Friday Five: School Days

Fro thefridayfive for 5 August 2011...

Bully, teacher's pet, geek, shy kid in the corner, or something else?
Shy kid in the corner. I wore glasses since my first year at school and was shortest person in class. I also was (and is) a loner and not good at making friends. So I was on my own, ignored even by bullies, not that we truly had them.

What did/do you usually eat during lunch time at school?
We were lucky to have a good school buffet. But I don't remember what was there... Just that there was a real food most of the time and almost always there were some fruits.

What did/do you normally wear to school? Thinking back to what you wore(if you've already graduated), do you like it?
During my first years school uniform was mandatory. Here is a picture of what it looked like, this one is dress uniform, the one for normal days had black apron made from sturdy cloth.
Then after 1992 (my 5th year) we could wear whatever we wanted, so I switched to white blouse / black skirt when weather allowed and jeans when it was too cold. In upper years I just wore general street clothes.

Any sports/activities/clubs you participate(d) in?
English language group in my 3rd year and then Dancing club for 3-4 years. After that I usually went to out-of-school groups.

Any worthwhile friends you (would) still keep up with after graduation?
The only friend I didn't loose is my almost-sister who I knew way before school. There are a couple of friends I wish I could get back in touch with, but I am bad at staying in contact.
