I am Mormon. High school is not a good environment for a Mormon who wants to keep his standards. I was elected president of my class. My mom cried, my dad took me to Maggiano's, and I received more handshakes and pats on the back that day than I had ever received in my entire life. I got my first real girlfriend, Allison Wruk. Entering the presidency in my junior year, I had many ambitious goals. Of course, it was then that I realized I had no real power to do what I wanted. I made a couple of mistakes at the end of junior year. One of them was breaking up with Allison. The other was giving up the presidency to Lindsay Thomas. Of course, it was better in the long run but I really would have liked to have made the speech at graduation. Oh well. (Courtesy Nate Peterson)
