100 lb. Club - OT: Has anyone heard from our Apryl?
06-16-2006, 03:23 PM
I'm not sure when she last posted. I hope she comes on soon to give us an update. She must have gone through prom and graduation already, and probably has found a summer job. I think when last we heard, she'd settled on UW-Madison for college.
Apryl, if you're out there, tell us how you are and what you've been doing your last few months in high school. Inquiring minds want to know!

OMG! YOU and I are on the SAME wavelength! I woke up this morning thinking about her!
06-19-2006, 03:33 PM
I am bumping this thread. Where the heck is she? If she is coming to Madison that means she might make a side trip to Milwaukee--AND HOW FUN WOULD THAT BE???!?!?!?
06-22-2006, 09:02 AM
Bump! Apryl - please fill us in, we're all so curious!

I PM'd her in the first part of May, and she said everything was good, and she was just busy finishing school.
I'll PM her and see if we can't smoke her out!!

If need be, I can make a road trip to UpNorth, Wisconsin (picking up taekwandomom on the way & roundrn & charbar of course) and we will shag her out of wherever she is hiding.

Apryl, sweetie....come out...come out, wherever you are!!!!!!!!
We miss you, and love you, and want to know what the heck is goin' on :lol:!!!!!

Thanks for missing me! :) The end of high school was insane. Seriously, it's June 25th.... and I have no idea what has happened in the last month. I feel like I haven't sat down yet.
So prom was disappointing.... except for the fact that I looked amazing, and that's all that matters, right? Just a lot of drama with the group I went with. So, basically I wound up dancing my booty off by myself on the dance floor all night, and then coming home and looking up at the stars by myself. I must say it was quite.... like a scene from a movie. But what are you going to do? If your friends are acting like idiots, you don't let them ruin your night, right? Right.
Graduation was also very hectic. I was a valedictorian, so that was amazing. It was one of my dreams since elementary school, and I must say putting that medal on was just like saying "how do you like me now?" to all of the people who hurt me over the years. There was a big party at my house after the ceremony... tons of people (most of which I'd never met) and lots of walking around and smiling and saying "Thank you! Thank you... UW-Madison, yes, thank you. Majoring in history and Spanish, then onto law school, hopefully. Thank you, thank you." It really was a great time though. It was such a whirl!
So, I'm going to attend UW-Madison in the fall. I went to orientation/registration last weekend. It was amazing! I can't wait to go off to college and get out of this small town and get off this insane pedestal I've been living on. I mean, there are going to be 5,600 freshmen... my city has 8,000 people in it! :lol: I can't wait. I'm not at all worried about being homesick or anything like that... mostly, I am a little scared about being in such a new environment, but I'll adapt. For classes, I'm taking 4th semester spanish, a medieval literature class, medieval warfare (history), and Western Culture: Philosophy, Technology, Science in the Middle Ages.
Sounds like a lot of stuff about the Middle Ages, huh? :lol: They make these little interest groups at UW-Madison where 3 classes have a common theme, so that you can get to know people a little better, so I signed up for one.
Anyway... now I work about 20hours/week in a clothing store, and am just trying to go through my things and get ready for college, and spend as much time as possible w/ my friends and my dad. But, now that life has slowed down (well, not exactly, but, enough that I can be online sometimes) I'm going to come back here. I missed everyone.
Thanks, everyone! Apryl
P.S. I'm going to attach prom and graduation pictures to this tomorrow when I have more time... but it's 2a.m. and I have to work in the morning! :lol:
Congrats Apryl on making valedictorian, that is quite an accomplishment! Also congrats on looking fabulous at the prom, sounds like you had a good time regardless of your friends being idiots! Can't wait to see the pics.

Valedictorian? That is awesome. Congrats!!
06-25-2006, 09:52 PM
I'm so glad you aren't dead in a ditch somewhere.
Sounds like life has been keeping you busy for UpNorth, but put your roller skates on, kiddo!! Madison's great, you will love it, STAY AWAY from Mifflin Street unless you go with a BUNCH of people and keep an eye on your *ahem* beverage the whole time.
Good to hear from you, can't WAIT to see the Prom pics. :D

Congratulations Apryl! Glad to hear things are going well.

Congrats on Valedictorian, Apryl! That is mega-fabulous. :D
Madison is a fabulous place! Lived there for a couple of years and if the rent wasn't above my means, that is where I'd still be living.
Course, I am a bit dissappointed you checked in. I was startin' to get all excited about SAPF's road trip idea. ;) LOL
06-26-2006, 08:02 AM
Apryl... this is such a great time in your life. Live to the fullest everyday!
5600 .. yikes! Are you going to be living on campus? Where are those pictures you promised?
06-26-2006, 09:40 AM
Congrats Apryl! We are proud of you for your accomplishments!!
06-26-2006, 10:20 AM
Such exciting times Apryl. It sounds like you have been super super busy. I can't wait to see your prom pics. :)

Apryl!! Congratulations on making your dream a reality. I'm so impressed by you--always have been. Looking forward to prom pics. Hope you have a great summer, and hope that you continue to let us know what's going on in your life.
