Forever Words

I recently came across a few of my high school year books and was reading through them, feeling nostalgic and such. I thought, hey, why don’t I share all of these funny autographs with the blogger world. And since a few of you reading this blog went to high school with me, we can all enjoy the regurgitated words of old friendships. I won’t include ALL of them, because, well, I had to get a whole ‘nother yearbook to hold all the autographs so that would make for a particularly long post. Ok, not really. I will just omit the lame-o ones where so and so tells me “you are cool, never change, have a great summer, C U next year” sort of crap. Besides, it’s already going to be a long post.

So in no particular order, here is what people thought about me and said to me at the end of my Junior year at South Summit High School. Fight on for SS High!


Holly, its been fun having a locker by you. Thanks for being such a nice friend to me. Have fun!
-Your friend, Robby Brimhall

Holly, I can’t even explain how much I love you (in a different way…I love Ben [Lee] that other way) Tapestry is so much better with you in it. I hope you sit next to each other next year! I wish you were on drill team. -Liesel [Pederson]

Holly, next year we should become buds. You and Sandoval should party. Your bud, Ethan [Atkinson]

Holly- Well my bestest friend in the whole world!…Ahhh, we have both learned so many things this year! We are both so much more mature and better people. Hopefully throughout our lives we can stay friends. But until then, I will still bother you with my never ending problems that you don’t want to hear. Well, I guess all else I could tell you is that I love you so much! I if were a lesbian, you would be my secret lover! (j/k) Well, anyway, (save the worms!) Love you/Myndy [Wadsworth] XOXO

Holly Be gentle with Sandoval. He is fragile. I think you are cool. -Your bud, Curtis Cox

Patrick Martin signed twice for some reason. Both are…interesting.
Holly, you are sooo sexy. I want to make mad-hot-wild-kinky sex to you. Call me and we’ll set up a date or we’ll just do something else. -Putt [Patrick Martin]

Holly, In order for us to further our friendship/relationship we must continue to talk, and do more activities together. I must also bring about the point of your astounding beauty and charm. The magnificence of your character is also very, how do you say, intriguing. And lastly, YOU ROCK! Love, Putt

Holly. Like I said before Holly Carb[orators] are the best and so are you. You are funny and you know what is up. Have you seen the Matrix? We are like the people who aren’t batteries. -Rhett [Phillips]

Holly You are not the girl I remember last year. I always thought you wanted to beat me up! But now I know that you are a doll! Tapestry has been cool! Sorry I thought that…Now I know better! Have a great summer and I’ll see ya next year my senior Friend! Love Megz [Page?]

Holly, I will never forget the first time I worked with you at the pool! You told me how you wanted to pose for a picture. You always amaze me! You are a great friend and I will miss you when go to school! At least we will always have the pool! See you around! PS You’re awesome!-Jody Rydalch

Whoever said we were related? 🙂 If you want to get into the “western stuff” I’m the one that can help! 🙂 GOod Luck! MaryLou Blazzard [my second cousin]

Ok. Here we go again. How are you? Whats up? Dont you thnk this yearbook signing thing is weird? Just think about it. You bought this expensive book for…for…$30.00 ($33.00 if you went to the Yearbook Dance) and you let all these people write in your own personal book. Now correct me if I am wrong, but society is weird. This whole thing is just crazy! Who cares…ah, anyway…In 20 years you’ll read this (maybe). My dad hasn’t even looked at his and he is still living and breathing. My point is: It does not even matter what I write in this book, so I’ll just sign my name. JAMIE LAMBERT. There.

Hey Holly Have a cool summer, dont party too hard, call if desired. See ya on the blocks! Love, Conor Jensen

Dearest Holly- blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah -Love, Sandoval [my boyfriend at the time]

Hey Hotty Girl. I love you. We should hang this summer so I can stay out of trouble. You are a good strong woman and I wish you well. Have fun and be wise. -Ian George

Holly! Hi cutie! I’ve loved getting to know you a little better this year. You are someone I seriously look up to. I value your opinion you’re so honest, I love that! We MUST hang out this summer- I still can’t tell if you really want to or not, but I do, so tough luck! 🙂 Love your guts!! love/Tahnie [Moon]

Holly- Soccer was a blast! The tapestry trip was even funner I am so glad I got to know you this year. You are very awesome person. Never change for anybody! Sorry I never kept my “No Sugar Diet”! Love, Juli Walker

Holly, You are one of the coolest and unique people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. You are wonderful becuase you are a trail blazer and you are so individualistic. I hope we can hang this summer! Kurt Walker

Hholly if love was people, I’d be China. Love love love love love ya! Keep in Touch! -Mardee Goodwin

Part II: What I said about love and people and a certain Asian country was true. However, I’ve decided that I need to expand on that a little. Holly, how much have we been through together? Between good boyfriends, and bad boyfriends, sneaking out and tanning on your roof, riding on your Trail ’90 everywhere Those were the days! I can’t think of anyone else I’ve ever had such fun with ! You opened my eyes to a lot of thing I couldn’t (or wouldn’t allow myself to) think upon on my own. What can I say? I hope hope hope you come to my graduation, I cannot think of a better graduation gift than to see you in the crowd as I walk through the gym of SSHS for the last time! -Forever, Mardee [Goodwin]

Holly, Holy crap can I say that you used to intimidate me SO f-ing bad! I can honestly say that I am so glad I got to know you this year! (I’m not just saying that to sound like a dumb blonde!) You made the cruz so fun- who can forget Mr. “Wild Thang” and all thse crazy drunk men in their mid-fourties! But hey, dancing was a blast! Good luck next year! -Hillary Smoot

Holly, You are the coolest! Lets ride horses some time!!!- Later. Nick [Bishop]

Holly my dear, I hope you know how much you mean to me! You have been my friend for such a very long time and I hope that we will remain friends for even longer! I have honestly learned probably more from you than almost all of my friends. I truly appreciate the honesty I have been able to share with you. Holly- I know you will have success in all you do. You have a persistence that is unbeatable. It is, of course, hard at times, but never give in. Good luck in swimming next year. I’ll be at State. Come visit me in Provo, no matter how much you detest it! I love you! -Rachel Wagstaff

Holly. What do I say? How do I begin? My dearest “spurt” friend! I miss you between “Spurts”! You have no idea how much you have helped me this year. I will forever be grateful. Thank you for being there. Thanks for being strong even though all your friends have not had the confidence to be strong. Thanks for not hating me, even though I have so many quirks! You helped change my life even if you don’t think so. I will always be in your debt and your friend, so if you ever need a shoulder…Lets do stuff all summer! I love your so much and I can’t say thanks you enough. Have a great summer. Keep in touch! -Amy Shuppy

Holly, you are so awesome! You are one of those few people who doesn’t care about what anybody thinks of you, or you don’t show it anyway. Hey, its been real! -Trevor Rezac

Holly- We’ve never been the best of friends, but I wish we were. I think you’re an awesome person and you always know how to express yourself! -Tillery Stahr

Dear All-wise Holly, Hey, I want you to know something. No, not that I am closed-minded, but how cool it is that you are you. Most people, myself included, change overtime from trying to talk about their thoughts, to trying to be dumb and hide the person within so they are more accepted. You somehow have not done this and I do see it. Holly I wish you knew how I really was. Maybe you will one day. Maybe. – Jeffery Sargent

Holly. Thanks for being so cool to me and for being my friend even though you’ve told me a few things I didn’t want to hear.Keep in touch with me. See ya around. Kendrick [Woolstenhulme]

Holly, you are the fuzziest kid alive! …You have such wit and sociality! Love ya -Lindsay Smoot

Holly I have always enjoyed having you in class. You really “think” about things and that is fun! -Brother Cottle

Holly- Hey babe! You totally rock! Seriously you are so cool and fun to be around, you have such an interesting personality. I mean that. It comes from the heart! Sorry that I always worried about my hair when i was around you . I know you hated it. See you later. -Kensey [Roper]

Holly, hey girl. you’re really cool and unique. I like that a lot about you. And hey, there is nothing wrong with cheating…and thanks for not weirding out on me. Love, Palmer [Hagen] PS Tell Amy I LOVE HER!

Holly Holly, she’s so Jolly! You are the most unique girl I know. I really admire you for being you! I’ve had the funnest time in PSYCH with you. Have a great summer and get ready for next year! We’re gonna be SENIORS!!! See you around! -Megan [DeGerring]


Ok. So now I understand why I spent those $30 on my yearbook.  It feels good to remember who I was during the hardest part of my life. Apparently I came across as being a pretty cool girl who had it together. Man oh man, if they only knew! Well, either way, it feels good to reflect and remember all my friends and experiences of my high school career. I’d totally do it over again. Only this time, I’d be nicer to people, including myself.

Thanks guys, for leaving ‘forever’ words in my yearbook.

  1. Best idea for a post ever!!!!!!! Makes me curious of what people said in mine…in fact I’m going to go get it so I can share with you what you wrote…..

    Tahnie Moon,
    You make the stars fall-when you shine-(especially Tyler’s)
    I’ve really enjoyed learning about you and me-we have a lot in common. I think more than we both realize. You, Amy, & me need to hang more. Call me this summer.
    -Holly Butler

    Thanks for sharing and I couldn’t agree more with everyone’s comments. You are still the cool, likable girl that has it all together. Loved it Holls!

  2. Wow. What I wrote really sucked…I regret not having been more eloquent, nor expressing my thoughts in a better way?

    Are there do-overs in the yearbook world?

  3. Holly, good post girlfriend. My comment to you actually shows me that I am not that great of friend and I never have been. It also shows me that people loved you in highschool for some of the same things they love you for now. I guess people never change… only improve as I hope is what happened in my case. I have lost my yearbooks, did you know that? They have disappeared. Probably a good thing. Like I need THOSE memories. High school was very hard for me too.

  4. “Apparently I came across as being a pretty cool girl who had it together. Man oh man, if they only knew!”

    Man oh man! If YOU only knew! We go through life thinking we know ourselves and thinking what a letdown it would be for others if they only knew who we were. Maybe others know us better than we know ourselves. Maybe sometimes we should learn about ourselves from them.

    Just something to think about.


  5. I have been horrible about checking blogs lately. I happened upon yours tonight and linked to this one…didn’t realize it even existed…hope you don’t mind that I helped myself. I was really touched when I read that you included me from your yearbook. Even though I haven’t “really” been around in you in many years, I can’t imagine you ever changing from the strong beautiful person you were then.

  6. Holly, this definately brought a smile to my face. What a wonderful idea!! Miss you, and I need to finally meet your darling baby!
