Things I have learned that the teachers didn't teach

It's been awhile, but I figured I would see how many I would shock by making a post.

Anyway, considering I am graduating this coming Sunday, I thought this would be a great opportunity to share some of the things I have learned!

  • I cannot sing, do not ask me to unless you are purposely trying to lose your hearing
  • I cannot dance, I still do it just looks rather scary
  • I cannot dance latin style, the hips refuse to move independently of the shoulders
  • I run/walk better in heels (meaning I should put lifts in my combat boots)
  • I am a ditz, I admit it.
  • I have blonde moments, I admit it.
  • Power tools for gardening + me = 2 cut extension cords
  • Friends come and go, but stupid people last forever
  • Knowing the Heimlich maneuver on a lizard is not useful when a human is choking
  • Singing helps pass time when tying a rope bridge
  • The command Eyes Right does not equal Rear March
  • Do not trust anyone that thinks CPR is going to help when I have been hit in the face by a basketball
  • When friends are trying to teach me spanish, have a dictionary to make sure what they are saying is the actual definition
  • My friends love Dads burritos, including the hispanics
  • 5<4 (you had to be there)
  • A saber to the ear does not feel good
  • a rifle to the ear does not feel good
  • I am able to send a flag 20 ft in the air and not so much as blink when it comes down, throw me a rifle I duck and cover
  • It is okay if the person next to you falls asleep while marching a parade
  • I am a good shot... as long as I lay down or kneel
  • One person can make two other people get along and be good friends, just by being in the room
  • I sometimes do not catch on to things right away
  • When someone says learn everything, its for a reason so don't look at them like they are crazy
  • When taking a chemistry test for college it helps to remember the simple stuff as well as the complicated stuff
  • Math is my friend, do not be afraid of math... except, there is no reason for half the stuff they teach us
  • What I hear in song lyrics may not be what they actually are
  • I am conversational in acronym
  • I can tell a story in one breath, but I cannot guarantee if everyone will understand me
  • It really is a small world after all, that's why one of my old coworkers is now my student teacher
  • I'm a squeaker
  • Penguins have special capabilities, not to mention they are just plain awesome
  • Graham crackers have some sort of healing property
  • It is humorous to watch the aftermath of one of my friends flirting with my instructors wife
  • Nothing can really creep me out anymore, at least socially
  • I am a jungle gym for a 10 yr old and a 6 yr old
  • I have heard just about every blonde joke and variations there of.
  • It is perfectly normal for high school students to sing the oscar meyer song
  • It is also perfectly normal for high school students to be singing barney, twinkle twinkle, Im a little tea pot, and various other children's songs.
  • Sleep with one eye open, especially when coming home from a competition and there is cameras
  • The simple sport of badminton is not so simple
  • When doing a project for biology that involves lime jello... Do not eat your project
  • The majority of my class will have back problems in 15 yrs do to backpack that are at least half our weight
  • Keep military bearing now, cry later
  • I like children as long as I can give them back
  • My brain is dysfunctional, but it works
  • There must be complete focus on a 10k, unless there are goslings 10 ft away
  • Breakfast burritos after a 10k is not always a good plan
  • 0 dark thirty is a perfectly normal time to get up, just make sure Mom has coffee
  • It is possible to take over the world with ping pong balls, coke machines, and penguins
  • Singing in my sleep is normal, sitting up and saying, "Shut the f*** up Colyer" is not
  • I am the future of the US Army... That should scare people
  • "I am insane with long horrible intervals of sanity." -Edgar Allan Poe
  • I will always have that happy, clumsy aura about me... get over it
  • I no longer am a deer in the headlights, but I have my moments
  • I refuse to be a Leming, you can jump off the cliff, Ill stand and wave
  • If someone doesn't like the way I dress, than don't look at me
  • I have learned a lot, probably to much to list here, but at least I can say I caught the plane!!!
Hope this keeps you all happy for a few!
Thanks for watching me and supporting me through the roller coaster known as high school
