Thoughts on high school, favorite classes or teachers, a good high school anecdote?

I wish i could go back in time to live a few more days at New Trier. I would go to a few favorite classes, take an extended lunch break off campus at the beach with friends and talk to as many people as possible. Then fast forward to my life now...life is good!

What were you listening to back then?

The Cars, Wang Chung, The Police, Outfield, David Bowie, Duran Duran, Eddie Money...the awesome list goes on & on.
