Weekend plans?

Where have you traveled? What places do you want to go but haven't yet?

What's the unhealthies food item in your house right now? The healthiest?

What's for lunch? Dinner?

There were two hundred and something in my high school graduating class, and it was an all girls school.  That same high school graduates about 100 girls now.

Wow, that is a small class, the divide b/w the haves and the have nots must have been real obvious.

I can't see much experience knowing different types of people in a class of 59. lol. I guess you NEED to travel to meet people unlike yourself then. Shrug.

"Where did I say that?"

In your post.  When one responds to someone else's experience directly and says "Gee and you thought I was ____________." You are responding to what that person was saying, comparing yourself to being not what they said (inexperienced) and that they are instead of you.  If that's not what you meant, you shouldn't type that.  

1. You need to quote things correctly.

2. I was speaking of all the times I have been told how unexperienced I am by living in the same area my entire life and not traveling out of North America.

I guess it just goes to show you that you can learn all about different people by not even leaving your area just by going to school and interacting and being friends with so many different types of people from all over the world.

"You need to quote things correctly."

No, I normally would quote exactly, but I was telling your what your repsonse meant.  Because you seem to think that even though you responded directly to someone else's experience, that you didn't say what you actually did say.

OMG that is a winner, you are TELLING me what my response meant? bwahhaa...I KNOW what it meant and it was a direct answer to what others have told me in the past about my experience in meeting people different than myself. lol.

Yep. We had three "sections" of English and other core courses in HS.  And in elem/middle, we had three secions of each subject.

There was absolutely not much diversity in my class - nor in my school.  We had two Asians in my graduating class - one had an american father and a Japanese mother.  The other was Korean and adopted by an American family at birth.  We had no blacks or hispanics.   Very very white Christian town.  It's one of the reasons I don't live there and don't want to raise my kids there.

Geez, Bord, you're so provincial, what with graduating with only 5 people from your high school in Japan.

We had about 400 students in my graduating class.  The school district (the whole county) is a little over 10,000 students.  Two (9-12) high schools, 4 (6-8) middle schools, one (6-12, I think) junior/senior high, and 10 (PreK-5) elementary schools.  The two high schools are much larger than the combined junior/senior high.  It's located in the Western end of the county where the population is much sparser.
