I was surprised that they thought we didn't HUNT!
I was thinking that too!
Yeah! me to I have a lot of family members that go hunting.
I am surprised that all of you like sweet tea. MMS
Sweet tea is amazing though!
I love sweet tea. It's like all that I drink!
Sweet tea is amazing my mom and grandmother make it all the time and it's my most favorite drink ever also Arnold Palmer <3 If only I could drink it all the time.
I don't like sweet tea
I was suppressed that the Auburn students said that calling northerner's "yankees" was for older people and not a lot of people do that in the south.
Yeah lol. I don't even know what Yankee is supposed to mean.
I guess that applies for Redneck too.
It really surprised me when all of you thought is was getting cold at 65 degrees, to us that is warm and we would all be swimming at that temperature.
i dont know about anyone else around here but 65 is warm for me...
Not all the time Justin, it always depends on the wind chill don't forget about that but yes, 65 is warm to us especially in like September and October, like it started snowing on Halloween or a little before, and it was extremely snowy and cold in November, our summers start late and end early it's not to fun.
yeah it's usually not cold at 65 degrees but when it's also windy it feels alot colder
I was very surprised how people in the south could't wear leggings. Lots of the girls at Mattawan wear leggings all the time.
This is actually a very complicated subject. A lot of debating went into creating this rule, and there is still a lot of controversy surrounding it. There are exception to the rule; for example: If your shirt comes down at least 4 inches above your knees, it is acceptable. You can also wear them under skirts, but skirts aren't really that popular. If you get caught wearing leggings, you will be asked to call your parents for them to bring you some pants, and if they aren't available, you have to go to ISS.
That sounds kinda rude like we can't wear really short shorts and we can't wear spaghetti straps, but we can wear leggings but skirts aren't very popular here either, we don't usually get the chance to because always cold when we get the chance too.
y'all are so lucky- our dress codes are pretty strict!
What really surprised me was the temperature in Alabama, 50's and 60's are warm for us in winter. For about a week we had temperatures in the negatives. What's the coldest it's been for all of you?
the coldest it got here was either 8 or 14 but its usually not that cold here.
I was surprised when someone said that 50 degree weather was cold there. Also some said that you wouldn't go swimming in 75 degree weather because it is too cold. It was cool that people in the South have such different opinions than us because we aren't used to each other's weather conditions.
I was surprised that it was 65 degrees down there.
How was also surprised on how you guys say Y'all
It got to 8 degrees once.
It got to -40 degrees last year
it snows every 4 years you are SOOOOO lucky
It surprised me that some of you wouldn't go swimming in 75* weather, I guess we've just gotten used to the cold as today we've hit a heat wave of 30*, so when it gets 75 its perfect for swimming.
A heat wave of 30*? That's cold!
If you live in Michigan, 30* is a heat wave. It helps to grow up here, you get used to it. I know that when I go down south, it is always too hot for me. Some of us wear shorts in snow. I'm not kidding.
what surprised me the most if how much we have in common, like music and fashion. Also how much of y'all drink sweat tea, and how y'all say "you guys" instead of "y'all".
I was surprised when you all said that the temperature was 65 degrees there- That is like Summer to us!
I can't believe 65 degrees is like the summer to y'all! I wouldn't even swim in 65 degrees weather
i was surprise when they liked the same type of music as us
I was thinking the same thing for you guys.
Have y'all ever seen over 100* heat?
No I don't think so, I'm 13 and I've only been in 96 degrees when I was in 4th grade in Michigan. When I visited California for the summer I was so excited it was so warm well, HOT I guess you could say I was in a sweater and shorts in 121 degree weather
Yes we have, a couple of times last year
Nathan, yes we have seen over 100* heat up here. It doesn't happen very often but there are a few days in the summer that get up to 100. Last summer I think it got up to 105* at one point. How hot does it get down there?
I think we have seen some last year here, in AZ I have seen 114* whats the hottest weather you have seen there, Nathan?
Yes! It gets to be 100 degrees or over a couple times in the summer.
I have experienced that before! It felt terrible! Even the pool was too warm to swim in.
I was surprised by what weather you considered to be hot an cold. It shows how different our climates are.
I was surprised that we have a lot of stuff in common like fashion, and music. I was expecting for all of us to have different opinions.
Yeah me too. I think it's cool that you use monograms on your jewelry and clothing.
I was surprised that y'all like country music. I thought that was a southern thing
I was surprised that not all had strong accents.
I was surprised that a lot of you guys listened to pop or hip hop for music. I thought Southerners listened to country music.
I can't believe that you thought that we don't hunt!
I was surprised that we all are so much alike and no one even noticed, like we noticed our similarities and I noticed our difference.. did anyone else?
What surprised me is that one of the slang words you have is "Yeat"
What surprised me was that You had a fishing team. I was wondering how your school goes against other schools in fish?
Well, I was surprised that y'all down in the south like some of the same things we like here up in the north.
I was surprised to learn you aren't allowed to wear yoga pants or leggings at school!
I was surprised the most that they weren't that different from us then we are from them. We almost do basically the same things. What clothing is popular here is popular there, like clothing, sports, Etc.. I would say the only difference is the accents. Thats about it.
At first I thought you all were gonna be a bunch of rowdy rednecks. But after watching and listening to you I was quiet surprised how alike we were. For instance we talk the same and wear the same styles aside from the leggings...
we're not. a lot of people are not rednecks. some people are but we're all different.
I was surprised by how it was snowing but you didnt wear any jackets
Even though it was snowing, it was like 33 degrees outside, which is like the warmest it gets here in the winter. Nobody wears coats around here unless it is like 20 or below, which is... I don't know... ALL WINTER LONG!!
it surprised me how y'all say "pop" instead of "soda"
I was surprised at how we're all connected, and we have a lot in common; even if we live in completely different parts of the country. I noticed that just because we live in different states, doesn't mean that we're in completely different worlds.
you spell YEET like that not like yeat
I figured you guys would be Canadian as far as accents go.
Define "Canadian Accent."
Are you talking about that aboot/about stuff? That's more of a joke.
I was suprised that the Northerners have 16 point deer and we dont. I also was suprised that we have alot of things in common and we really dont have alot of differences because we are alike in some ways.
True and we enjoy of doing the same activity's
their accents sounded like ours
what surprised me was that yall don't use, "yall"
I figured y'all would have a Canadian accent!!!
We don't live in Canada though...
My parents are from the north and we often visit up there so im kinda used to the cold weather but i was still surprised when you said 60 degrees is swimming weather.
I was surprised to see that Michigan isn't as racially divers as auburn Al.
I was surprise by how you dressed. I thought most guys in the north had the military cut and not the air fro and flow.
Omg let me tell you that if we DID have to dress up, I wouldn't GO to this school!
I was surprised that you guys were aloud to bring jugs of tea to school! What kinds of rules do you have at your school? Why do you get to bring tea?
I was surprised to see a kid in the front row drinking out of a jug we can not do that here Mattawan.
I was very surprised (and very happy) that you guys have more band students in your particular class that choir students. About 1/2 of our grade is in choir. I am in band, though, and it has changed my life.
Band is awesome!
I was surprised that some of you guys for last hour were serious and didn't laugh that much. I mean our class is hilarious, trust me our teacher knows very much so.
@jay.D AJHS well thats just who we are up here in Michigan we got that flow.
I was surprised that you accents were hardly noticeable. It was also funny to me that you thought 30 degrees was cold! You get used to it!
I was also surprised somewhat the we both had the same popular smartphone apps.
Wow, if it was 60 degrees here, I would go swimming.
It surprised me that you used the word soda and not pop. Honestly I thought northerners used the word soda, but we apparently don't.
My new lifelong dream is to convince the teachers to let me drink tea out of a milk jug.
It surprised me when they were all kind of hyper and well awake. At our school everyone is quiet in class, and looks drowsy. js
I was surprised a lot of y'all like sweet tea
It surprised me that yall get to wear leggings and we don't. Im really jealous of that bcuz I love wearing leggings but I can only wear them on weekends.
I was really surprised that so many of them like sweet tea and drink it daily.
It surprised me that yall like sweet tea. Usually u cant get sweet tea in the north.
It surprised me that ya'll thought we were all rednecks?
What surprised me the most was that yall like sweet tea
I was surprised that a lot of Northerners have tried sweet tea and liked it. Because I HATE it!!!
I'm surprised that y'all get to wear leggings.
I am surprised that Northerners drink sweet tea too
*Be respectful.*Be clear.*Check your spelling.
