USC – Higher Education at the University of Shasta College

I continued on from SHS to USC. Junior College was in my future. I didn’t have a whole lot of dough for a university. My parents had been kind enough to provide me with some cash, it was about enough to cover 2 years at a university. So I decided to do the logical thing...

High School – It hasta be Shasta

After Nova I continued on to SHS. Sophmore year was fairly uneventful. I just kinda went to class feeling insignificant as a low level Sophmore. We did mess with Jaime’s car… as Pecos mentioned. Junior year things got a little more interesting. We now were all in cars, with mine now being the Firebird. Afterbirth...

Old Shasta and the Evil English Teach

I attend Old Shasta Elementary from kindergarten to 8th grade – I remember it the school proudly advertising itself as the oldest remaining school in California – I was for sure that the teachers there had been there since the start. We lived in a pretty isolated world out in Old Shasta, looking forward to...

SHS: Go Woofs.

SHS was awesome, and it was where all the Amigos Locos first kinda came together as a complete group. I met Guillermo first (actually I think he and I may have met at Nova), and we were lab partners in Raymundo’s Biology class. Guillermo used to pull all kinds of wacky stuff in there, and...

Stirring up the Nova Memories…

Eduardo just reminded me of a random Nova memory… My locker just happened to be right outside of Mr. Aznicar’s class on the second floor of the Green Hall. It was my one and only usefull locker throughout my school years. I never really used one before, and didn’t really use one after. And much...
Grant Elementary : Mi Escuela Loca

Grant Elementary : Mi Escuela Loca

It’s really impossible to sum up seven blissful years at Grant School, where I attended from 2nd through 8th grade. If I were to recount all the funny and cool memories I have of the place, my entry would be about a thousand pages. So, I’ll just jot down the few most memorable experiences off...

French History

College was just downright cool. everything about it was great. Even at a relatively small, conservative, catholic university, it was the best time. Academically, things were always interesting with peculiar mix of professors on staff. There were the liberal catholic priests who ranted endlessly about the injustices in the world caused by the U.S., juxtaposed...

SAC-STATE Slacker

Sacramento State provided me with a ton of very fond memories, unfortunately not many of them were actually school related. I have a few things however that did happen during school that do warrant retelling. FINAL EXAM I was taking a class called Oil and Conflict in the Middle East. I had been out of...

High School – Nova

Well the madness that was Middle School came to a end in high school… at least for awhile anyways. Like everyone else, I attended Nova. In general I really enjoyed Nova. But it’s kinda weird. When I think back, I don’t really remember any specific incident that was really funny or interesting. I just went...

Sequoia 8th Grade Year – The meeting at the bike rack…

8th grade may have turned out to be the most fun year I ever had in school. School was still super easy for me, so I put in very limited work and still got A’s. (this changed right after 8th grade…) So I spent most of my time at school messing around. One particular day...

That JaimeNacho sure plays a mean tetherball.

Eduardo’s discussion of over inflated playground balls has lead me to a memory that needs discussing. Put a hard yellow ball on the end of a 5-foot rope, attach it to a 7 foot pole, place two combatants in a circle, and have them swing the ball as hard as they can and try and...

Eduardo at Ellerhorst Elementary: Three Feet High and Rising

For kindergarten and first grade, I attended Ellerhorst Elementary in Pinole. It was a pretty neat school, and I can remember quite a lot about my days there despite my young age. A few random memories: 1. On my first day of school in the first grade, I opened up my desk to find The...
