Mission Mountain School / Get together?
« on: June 03, 2006, 01:29:00 PM »
Hi guys-

I was wondering if we set a date for a get together of former MMS students if any of you would be interested. We would do it at a neutral location (not MMS). It would be a way for old friends to reconnect, see each other and their families. By holding the get together away from MMS the hope would be that ALL alumni would come and feel comfortable.

Please let me know what you think of this idea, as it will take some work to put together

The only thing I meant from my comment was I had/have enough issues with out adding another to the pile!

Anyways- I am good. Married for 8 years now. I have 4 kids. Reed is 8 (you can do the math there), Erin is 6, Sophia is 4, and Sydney is
2 1/2. We live just north of Seattle and love it. WE bought this house last summer and it was a good thing. Enough room for everyone and the dog.

I have been working as a nurse for the past few years and hate it! So this fall I am opening my own preschool. It has been a lot of hard work, but is much more suited to our life fight now. My husband Jay works for Microsoft (so you must have hit a sensitive note with the comment to Jessica). He has been there for 6 years and likes it quite a bit.

I have a good relationship with my parents. They are still here in Seattle. So my kids see them a couple times a month. It took having the kids though to get to a place where we were even talking again. I didn't do so well after MMS either. There really was not "plan" when I came home. I ended up living with friends then boarding school then in my own apartment all too graduate high school. I just was never able to live with my parents again.

I was at the alumni reunion this past summer. It was very strange. John and Colleens girls are very cute. But living in that very small town they don't get much interaction with other children their own ages. It will take its toll on them, the whole small town thing that is.

I've talked with Katie H on and off since we left the school. I also talk with Addie periodically. A friend of mine saw Ashley a year or so ago at REI. They spoke for a while; I guess she is living in CA now. Nadine is out here. Jessica lives about 15 minutes from my house. They were over for Easter.

I think it would be fun to get together with everyone, not at MMS (since that is a very sensitive subject). What do you think?

Here is my email

It's funny, I had know idea that this forum or any of this was going on. I just was surfing the web one day and came across it. Of course then someone asked about Addie and I couldn't keep my mouth shut.

E-mail me a picture. I'd love so see what you look like theses days.

Love always and forever,

"For whatever its worth, I don't beleve Shayna had a mental illness, coming from that place that could explain the diverging subjective experiences."

Thanks for that vote of confidence Kat!

By the way, how the hell are you?

Again you would have me say something that I do not see as true. I did not feel that John caused abuse. Mike, Deb, Gary and Colleen were all apart of daily life, John even less so when I was there. Obviously things have changed seeing as how John and Colleen are the only two founders left. I hear what you and some of the other girls are saying and that is your reality, not mine. So for me to post things about John or MMS that are as negative as what you and some others write is just wrong. It goes against everything that I stand for in my life. MMS was not a walk in the park. It was hard and at times and really sucked, but it taught me to appreciate what I had before I went, and what I have made for myself and my family since I was there. I am a better person due to my experience, which includes all the people I met at MMS.

What would you have me say? You are just as much of a bully as you accuse John of being! Because I feel differently then you, you call names and make accusations, how is that any different then what you accuse MMS of doing?

Mission Mountain School / What ever happend to TARA?
« on: May 31, 2006, 05:51:00 PM »
That probably does come a cross the wrong way. I apologize for that. Tara was a girl from a very troubled background and no MMS was not the right place for her. She needed full psychiatric help. With Tara around though it did make life very
Interesting and quite comical at times. I wish her nothing but the best in life, and I truly wish the best for her truly wonderful family. They were amazing!

How am I a vigilantly? I simply am trying to help whom ever would like Addie?s info out. In the mean time, since I did not jump on your band wagon about the "abuse" at MMS you attack with all this about being neutral and complacent. How can I fight a battle I did not even know was waging until I happened onto this site? How would I have known about it? I did not feel abused, and so went on living my life with the thought that other people were in the same boat. Yes you could call this ignorance, but I was able to take my experience at MMS and keep going, it did not drag me down or weigh on me the way it obviously did you and others. I am happy in my life, I am happy when I think back at MMS. No I did not like pulling Spotted Nap Weed for days on end out of a hoarse pasture, or chopping quarts of wood. But it was a very colorful time in my life from lots of stand points. Who knows where I would be today without MMS? I got myself to a place where I needed to be away from my family, friends and environment. I was out of control! I wont go so far as to say MMS saved me, but they surly helped me!

And my saying "play nice" means don't diminish someone else?s success just because you can?t see past your anger.

I'd also like you to clarify how I have not been honest about MMS. I have not said it was all peaches and cream, on the other hand I have not said that I found it to be pure hell. Where do you pull your judgment from?

What is your problem? I did not suggest that Kat give up her fight, or anyone else for that matter. I simply asked if on a Posting asking about someone if we couldn't keep it calm and maybe more on topic.

As for who I am, I am a mms alumni. Why do you need more? I was there close to the beginning and have been back a few times since I left. My name wont matter to most of you, and since you are post anonymously who are you to talk?

Back to the original question, what ever happened to Addie? If you'd like to be in touch with her I have her current phone number. So if the person that first posted this question will leave me a private message with their contact info I will give it to Addie so she can call you.

Kat- this set of postings has turned into one like all the others, ranting and raving about MMS. Please think about refraining from posting on the neutral subjects if you can't play nicely!

The only thing that I remember about Sam is when they found chicken bones in her dresser drawer. Never heard a thing after she runaway.

Jessica looks great these days! She has a one year old son Mac and is married to a guy that works for Microsoft. They live in Seattle and are remoduling a house that they just bought. Before she had Mac she was teaching high school.

At this point I'd say she is quite a success.
