A visit from a friend brought back so many high school memories. She brought our high school annuals (yearbook). I haven't looked at one in a hundred years. After looking through my 1975 annual I realized how I checked out of high school. There wasn't one thing or one photo of me in the annual. My sophomore year I participated in every activity I could and I remember the financial strain it was and how I really didn't enjoy it or fit in. So my junior and senior year I quit the activities. I liked school, did well and I did have fun hanging out with the not so popular people. My senior year I missed the deadline to submit a senior photo mainly due to lack of money. I remember finally getting my photos but sad to know I missed the annual deadline. I didn't attend any games, dances, prom. How weird to think of that now. When I graduated I was happy to be out of high school because I was mad about how my high school dealt with me as a Hispanic student and that's another story. I realized how my ''Westend" classmates I graduated with weren't in the annual either.
