#3 I remember a pep rally senior year when a kind of friend of mine blew up a condom as a balloon and started singing terribly into it. It was embarrassing and I was going to engage them to stop. Another friend of mine stopped me and said “let him. This is as good as it gets for him.” And f**k he was right.

#7 Todd “I went to 8 consecutive proms at the same high school.”

He was so athletic that as a Freshman he dated a junior and went to prom. Same with Sophomore year. Junior and Senior years he dated underclass girls. After prom he became a custodian. For the next 4 years he Matthew McConaughey’d his way through students.

When he knocked one up, he celebrated with his friends on a golf course and attempted to drive from that drunk and got in a wreck. There is a memorial golf scholarship in his name.

#15 “If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best.” Has nothing to do with peaking in high school directly, but damned if every girl who peaked in high school doesn’t say that s**t.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
