Like Ohmigod, High School!

What year was it? 1987-1991

What were your three favorite bands/performers? Depeche Mode, the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel (I was a very strange teenager)

What was your favorite outfit? Levi's 501s and something comfortable on top. Okay, I'll admit it, my favorite outfit was my Tall Flags (known elsewhere as Colorguard) Pep Uniform, which was the short-short cheerleader skirt and short sleeved sweater with my name and high school proudly embroidered on it. I believe this monstrocity still lives in my parent's garage.

What was up with your hair? Do we really have to talk about this? It was very long, and for the last few years it was fashionably spiral-permed. We'd just gotten out of the huge bangs of the mid-80s, but the bangs were, uh, larger than they are today. There was a lot of mousse and hairspray involved.

Who were your best friends? Nell, Sarah, Sarah, many (but definitely not all) of the girls on the flag team, and other band people. Interestingly enough, my arch-rival and bitterest enemy was also named Shelby.

What did you do afterschool? I don't know--watched Oprah? Went to my French tutor. Practiced flag twirling.

Where did you work? I didn't. School was my job, and I didn't do a very good job at that, either.

Did you take the bus? No, I walked uphill both ways. I mean that literally. My parents lived in at the bottom of two hills, and to go anywhere you had to go up one side and down the other, and the same to get back.

Who did you have a crush on? Multiple crushes throughout the years, none of whom I care to mention here.

Did you fight with your parents? Oh please, who didn't?

Who did you have a Celebrity crush on? You know, I can't think of anyone in particular who I had a crush on.

Did you smoke cigarettes? Nope--gross

Did you lug all your books around all day because you were too nervous to find your locker? Yes I lugged my books around all day because we got the same locker all 4 years and mine was in a really bad location, and it was on the bottom and a pain in the ass to get through. Actually most of the time I shared my friend Sarah's locker.

Did you have a clique? Sort of. Freshman year I was in the Drama group, then with the band geeks, but I also kinda had my own friends.

Did you have a “The Maxx” like Kelly, Zach and Slater? I have no idea what this is. Is this from the OC?

Admit it, were you popular? Popular in the sense that everyone knew who I was--yes. Popular in the sense that everyone wanted to be my friend--no.

Who did you want to be like? Carol, this girl on my flag team.

What did you want to be when you grew up? an actress

Where did you think you’d be at the age you are now? Accepting my Best Actress Oscar

Who are you going to pass this on to? I dunno, who wants it?

Borrowed from Mom With Attitude.

HI Shelby, this is nice, you wanted to be an actress!!! Did you do something to reach this goal, i mean visit some Theater Schule or some workshops? Why you decide to go in technical direction?
Best wishes,
