In ’83. some people did nothing but talk. It’s true. For some people, hearing and being heard was the ultimate goal. Activities along this line included: heater sitting, door standing, main hall shouting, and laughing hysterically at some poor fools joke that made no sense whatsoever. While some people flocked the hallways, other girls flocked to the home economics rooms. Here they learned to be good wives: cook, have a happy marriage, and sew clothing for their many children.
In '83, music was important. Taste was as varied as the individuals themselves. While the polo-clad masses worshipped Billy Squier and men at work, the outer fringes followed other bizarre groups. Punkers listened to China-white, dead Kennedys, and the psychedelic furs. Cowboys listened to Mel Tillis, Willie Nelson, and Kenny Rogers. Those who followed a different beat listened to Pink Floyd. Yes, The Who, Led Zeppelin, and the perennial Rolling Stones.
In’83, when nothing else was happening, we ventured across the street to . . .the ‘Y’. We watched sports events in huge, unneeded arenas, laughed at the students, and dreaded the day we too would own a back-pack.

In ’83, we learned a secret of high school-you don’t need to be with others to be happy, and you don’t need to be isolated to be alone. We learned that being by ourselves could actually be fun. We found that it gave us time to be ourselves, and know ourselves. We also learned that you could be alone in a crowded bus, or a windy mountainside.
