You had a VERY hard stance on their choice of prom dress.

17. You went to a club fair and registered for ALL OF THEM. (And you'll still get emails from the scuba diving club years later.)

At least, we did.

19. You were afraid of any and all seniors. No question.

20. Unless one flirted with you. Then you were all about them.
