Through our years at New Haven High School, we all experience things that happen to us, in and out of the classroom. Here are some stories from the students, and the things that have happened to them.
Sophomore Audrey Ford stated, “Freshman year, I was doing the butterfly during the Swimming Intramurals, but no one told me that it was only down [the pool] and not back. So I swam back while everyone was screaming at me to stop.”
Freshman Keegan Huff said, “I spelled my name wrong when we were signing our social contracts in physical science. People still call me Keggan.”
Senior Zack Vedder pronounced, “I started a chant for a volleyball game (‘green green, white white’ cheer) and I yelled, ‘yell green green’. They repeated, and then I yelled ‘yell green green’, and I messed it up and everyone knew it. Then I made another attempt the same night, and I yelled, ‘yell green green’ and they repeated. Then I yelled, ‘yell white white’-- they repeated-- and then I forgot the last part and there was awkward silence and I looked stupid… And everyone came up to me saying they would give me trouble about it, including the principal and the superintendent.”
Sophomore Kamryn Poe stated, “The most embarrassing moment for me was during my freshman year softball season. In the Owensville tournament, my team and I were warming up and I ran straight into the collapsible fence. It fell... and so did I. Right in front of all of my friends, their parents, and the opposing teams.”
Freshman Austin Tegeler said, “Probably the most embarrassing moment would be when I farted in Mr. Tucker's class.”
While some people own up to their embarrassing moments, others would like to keep themselves anonymous.
One person pronounced, “It was the beginning of this year, and we were in PE swimming. And when we went back to change clothes, I had left my towel and all of my clothes in the locker room. And someone had taken them all but my boxers, so I had to walk out of the locker room in just my boxers looking for my clothes. The guys and girls were laughing, and I know now to keep my clothes where I can see them.”
Another person stated, “All of Spanish 1, because I could barely speak one word of it the entire year. They call it a Romance language, and I could have been asexual in that class.”
Embarrassing things happen to everyone, so what is your embarrassing story?
