Then on your way to class you would be stopped by a crowd with someone getting light and the crowd clapping saying ahh ah ah ahh and then everybody would scream heyy when the dancer did something big. Soon enough, someone would come in the circle with the chicken noodle soup, and if they didn’t do anything special by the first two rounds, everyone would just walk away.
For fashion, there were so much more fads for the guys than the girls. For guys they had this whole new fad of the nerd look. They started wearing thick rimmed glasses, tight pants, and plaid shirts, with a Mohawk haircut. The fly guys would have on Pradas, Maurys, and maybe Nike boots in the winter; either way it was important to have on expensive shoes. Girls did share some of these trends like the plaid shirts and the switch from wide leg to straight jeans with the newest Jordans. We did have the Uggs fad, which everyone hated but eventually everyone wore.
In summertime, it would switch up to tights and long shirts with sandals shoes similar to Toms. Most of our trends were not originals, but things we saw growing up as 90’s babies. I remember a day could not pass by without a freestyle battle. Guys would come up with flows like LL (LL Cool J), and even DMX. Sometimes they would talk about someone clothes when they just weren’t keeping up. Or a guy would try to sweet talk a girl whose attention he’s been trying to get all semester, and then someone silly would have nothing else to say and start rapping about living environment class and make the teacher feel cool.
There were a lot of fun times in high school, especially with the smaller classes, where we really got to know each other after sticking together as freshman. There was always laughter and so many great memories.
