What are your memories of high school?

I was in North Hall and very shy. One day in Mr. Mead's history class we were all out of control. Mr. Mead told us to settle down and one young man said he had one last paper airplane he needed to throw because it had an important message. Mr. Mead allowed it and it flew right up my skirt. I was horrified!
