Comments:

Married 13 years, divorced for 2 years, married again now for almost 21 years. Two children, lived all over California and now back in Utah because of a job. Like everyone else, I'm older. Otherwise, still the same person (non-conservative, non-morman and confirmed nonconformist). I'm still tall (5'11" at last measurment), but weigh 20lbs less than in high school. It took me until late 20's to loss my childhood "baby fat". I have furthered my passion for clothing design (specialty retro 50's wedding gowns and clothing) and after teaching myself, design knitting patterns. Sound engineer for a band, and a computer geek.

School Story:

Don't have much to say about the years commited to high school. Let's say the reality of my high school years were not as exciting nor as taudry as others chose to believe. I almost wish I could have experienced at least some of the things that were attributed to me. I wouldn't have been as bored. It was the one thing I learned in school, NOT to believe everything you hear about someone, make your own judgement. The high school experience was not funny other than the way any difficult experience can be sad-funny. If my years in high school had approached the imagination of some "special" people in school, I would enjoy the memories more than I do.

Who was your favorite East High Teacher? Why?

Mr (Dr.) Smart, Phychology, The ONLY teacher I remember as being able to think outside of the very little box the other teachers dwelled in.

What is the funnest thing you have done recently?

Decided last year that I was bored with trying to fight my grey hair, and I DIDN'T want to bleach it to match the direction it was heading (proud to say I've NEVER been a blonde) so I shaved my head. Liked it so much I have kept it to less than half of an inch. This from the girl who lived in a fall hair piece!!!

If you could have a "do-over" for one year or event in your life, what would it be, and why"

None. All events lead me to where I am, and I like it here. And I have never believed in thinking "what if". Learn (if possible) from mistakes, but every road has bumps and thrills.
The ONLY thing I regret,or would like to do over, is how I reacted to various things in my life, using my emotions and insecurities to make my decisions in dealing with the negative, instead of my brain. I should have used the reverse.

How have your priorities changed in the last 10 years?

I met the light of my life, my grandson, 2002. I have enjoyed him more than I ever thought possible. My priorities have not changed much, if I can wake up and look at myself and say "you are doing ok", and the people I care about, care about me, the rest doesn't matter. I learned years ago the only priorities in life that matter, are the one you set yourself, not what OTHERS say you should do.

Who would you most like to have lunch with?

Anthony Hopkins, myself 45 years ago.

Summarize the most important things you have learned since 1969.

Life has pretty much confirmed what I believed in 1969, nuff said. Thank god for Karma.

What question would you like to answer that hasn't been asked? Please answer it.

Are you kidding? If I haven't been asked the question yet, it is most likely because it was not that important, or, the person really doesn't want to know.
