Were or are high school kids in the USA so clearly labeled: jock, band member and nerd? In my school days in Romania most kids were none of the above. There were a few kids into sports (they were not very popular, they worked hard and their grades suffered), even fewer played musical instruments and there were a couple of people who were a sort of nerds, but they were more like grade chasers that put emphasis on memorizing and less on thinking. Kids were mostly divided into smart kids, medium smart and those who had difficulties learning. Oh and choir was mandatory so we all had to join in.

I never even made it to senior year because I was sick of that bullshit, so I got my GED when I was fifteen. Never regretted it.

Of course you may ask! I was suspended for...get this...for wearing my skirts TOO short! One more suspension and I would have been expelled. My sweet mom had to come in and plead my case because..also.get this...she made many of my skirts :) The school admin backed off at that point. Regulations required that if you knelt down, your skirt should touch the ground. This was the late sixties, man! That regulation changed shortly after we graduated.

In going over your answers, beyond the choir thing (Icannot sing to save my soul), you sound fairly similar to me. It's very cool that you've kept in contact with highschool friends :)

Ha! That's amazing.

Yeah, I have four high school friends who I'd still consider my closest friends, though unfortunately we don't see each other as often as I'd like.

Even if you can't see your friends as often as you'd like, that you know people who knew you back when is pretty awesome. I cannot say the same :)
