Where is the line....

This is my 1,021 post. This is my fourth year of blogging.

I've had things happen before because of this blog.

I've made great new friends in the blogosphere.
I've made money because of this blog.
I've become reacquainted with old friends because of this blog. *I'm still quite embarrassed of my pent-up, overwrought, decades (sadly) old jealousy.*
Iiiiiiiissuuuues!
I've kept my sanity because of this blog.
I've shared my deepest secrets with the world (ha!) because of this blog.
I've kept in touch with friends -- old and new, near and far -- because of this blog.

But I've never hurt somebody through this blog, however unintentional it may have been. And for that I have to formally, and bloggally, apologize to "She Who Knows Who She Is" for having potentially damaged her career and affected her life in a very negative way because of my stupidity.
I am so very sorry.

Oooh, I'm sorry! (I think it's not me). I hope she can forgive you and that her life truly isn't wrecked!

Jessica said...

All is well. I've been told to stop feeling bad.
So I'm gonna try that. :)

Andrea said...

Yes, you should stop feeling bad. You did nothing wrong at all, it was just stupid circumstances. Everyone should know it wasn't me because I don't have a career. At least not one that pays.

Speaking of old friends, who did you hang out with at Atherwood? You were just there for sixth grade, right? My best friend was Leigh Weisshaupt, and we always played with Lauren McAuliff, Shawna Pemberton, and maybe Katie Hall. I have not spoken to any of them in YEARS. :)

Jessica said...

WOW! Does that ever bring back memories!
Leigh Weisshaupt, Lauren McAuliffe,and Katie Hall I totally remember ALL of these girls, I guarantee I could recognize them NOW if necessary...but I have no idea where they are at now. They undoubtedly all went to Royal, no?

Shawna Pemberton...however...she went to Simi High, and I had classes with her actually. She became Shawna Hearn and she was such a funny, smart, quirky girl. I have a pic of her from high school somewhere. I'll have to dig it out and send it to you.
I have NO idea where she went post-Simi High, but knowing her, I expect she's stayed true to herself. That girl...oh, I loved her in high school...she was such a maverick. I wish I had the guts she did.

Jessica said...

Anyway...
My friends at Atherwood....so hard to remember...
There was a trio...Michaela Hardin, Whitney something and Kim something...that I was friends with (they were a grade above us though)
It's hard to remember who exactly I was friends with and who I just remember though....
I do remember certain names...like...Megan Buchanan, Carla Gerber, Scott and Jason Brown, Mackenzie W...something, Jessica Waugh, Andrea Loveless, Amanda Whipple....I could probably keep thinking and come up with more names!

Jessica said...

OH, PS, I was there 4, 5, 6...we were just in different classes until 6th grade...
I ended up in all the split grade classes....

Leigh and Lauren went to Simi High and Katie went to Royal. I think my mom still talks to Leigh's mom every few years but they all moved to AZ a while ago. Katie and I and Melinda Merrill were the only ones we really knew from Atherwood that went to Sinaloa and then Royal. Melinda and I were best friends all through junior high and high school- then she and I fell out of touch years ago but she found me on MySpace so we've been emailing lately and she is doing great- she is a scientist with a PhD! So she's doing well for herself. :)
Also, I totally remember Michaela and Whitney! They were both blonde and older and therefore very cool. I have always loved the name Michaela because of her! Also, do you remember Tom Noble? His middle name was Alan and I though that name was the greatest name I ever heard- Thomas Alan Noble. In fact, the only name my husband and I can agree on for a child is Thomas (Tommy) so that will be our first son, due in small part to ol' Tom Noble from Atherwood. :)

Scott and Jason Brown went to Royal, and Amanda Whipple and Andrea Loveless lived in the Bridal Path with me growing up so we carpooled to school and I babysat for Andrea's little brother for years.

Fun memories!

Tom went to Sequoia with me, and I think I remember him going to Simi too. He did not stay clean cut.
A lot of us from Atherwood ended up at Sequoia, oh the stories I could tell..
But not online, obviously! I can't keep wrecking people through the internet!

Well I saw your mention of Shawna Hearn (Pemberton). I can't tell you where she is now but I can tell taht after Simi High she went to Moorpark College for a few semesters. Obviously a money reason not grades if hse had half as much money has brians she would have been quite well off. After Moorparkt he plan was to go to Humbolt, which I believe she did, and get her Teaching Creditial then go to San Diego to teach.

MEMORIES...

We used to play the Ouija board at Shawna's house all the time when we would play after school. And she always had ballerina things all over her room because they were very into ballet. And I remember in about fourth grade she told me that she looked up the f-word in her mom's ancient dictionary and it meant "to prick", as in to prick one's finger. :)

Johnny said...

Some of the Ballerina stuff was still there in 12th grade. I had heard the storeis about the Ouija Board and the F-word. I hope she is well, she deserves it.
