Central or North?

Things That Are True If You Grew Up In Pickerington

Ohio: fields and farms as far as the eye can see. Plopped amongst all of these, just East of Columbus, lies Pickerington- a rather large suburban town. But if you grew up there, you know there's more to it than that.

1. The rivalry

When you say, "I'm from Pickerington" the first response you get is always "North or Central". The rivalry is so big that people from other towns know about it.

2. Violet Festival

During the summer of junior high/ high school, the best time was during the Violet Festival. You could ride rides, eat food, and see your friends you hadn't seen all summer.

3. You played a PYAA sport

If you played any sport when you were younger, it was probably a Pickerington Youth Athletic Association sport.

4. Football Friday Nights

From junior high to the end of high school, every friday night you were at a football game with all your friends. But the best was the North VS Central game by far.

5. Driving to Reynoldsburg for Chipotle

The only bad part about Pickerington is that we don't have our own Chipotle but luckily the Reynoldsburg one is close to home.

6. Hanging out at the local schools

You would always go with your friends to the elementary/middle schools to hangout on the playground even after school and during the summer.

7. Going to Circle K / Wendy's

Depending on which side of Pickerington you lived on, going to Wendy's or Circle K was a daily activity.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.
