When I Was a Freshman - Nate Robinson (pg. 2)

Simon: What was your favorite class?
Nate Robinson: All my friends were in this class... uh, health class. I had this health class that was fun, I learned a lot. And math. I had a teacher named Mr. Hickey.

Simon: And your least favorite class?
Nate Robinson: My least favorite subject? Uh... I didn't have a least favorite subject because, I mean high school is so much fun. I had a class called business principles. Our teacher, everybody loved her, but she was like a drill sergeant. She was so hard on us and tough on us, she wanted the best for us.

Simon: Describe the friends you had as a freshman.
Nate Robinson: Yeah, I hang with them today! My freshman year, we could tell we were gonna be the big dogs. All the seniors, juniors and sophomores... everyone knew who we were. When I was a freshman, Jamal [Crawford] was a senior and we hung with him. He was the don of the whole school. My group of friends, I could list so many because there are so many of them. Now we all got kids.

Simon: Were you a ladies man?
Nate Robinson: Uh... I had a friend in my crew that all the girls liked. I liked girls, don't get me wrong. I loved sports. You could say I was a ladies man I guess, but I was more focused on sports and hanging out with my friends before girls.

Simon: Do you remember who your crush was?
Nate Robinson: Yeah, I had a crush on a girl that was a junior. She was the finest girl in the school.

Simon: Did you get nervous asking girls to dances?
Nate Robinson: Never! I was a dancing machine!

Simon: Did seniors pick on you?
Nate Robinson: Yeah, they tried. If any juniors or seniors caught any freshman in the halls, they take you and dump you in the lake by our school. I remember they used to chase you down. So it made you go to classes and not get caught. We used to just run from class to class. But they never caught me, I was too fast!

Simon: Do you still have your yearbooks?
Nate Robinson: Yup, I got mine at home.

Simon: If you could do it all over again, would you?
Nate Robinson: To see what it's like, yeah I would. I wouldn't change how my high school career went. But I would love to be a freshman again and go through it all, and see how it is and see what would have happened differently.

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

    Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
