8th Grade Looking Back...So Much To Say

Year: 1999
Age: 14
Grade: 8th


Finally, after three years of waiting, eighth grade was no longer in my future...it was my life. I was finally getting used to being a teenager and the year was pretty fun. So many good memories from that year...it's really too bad that I don't have the brain cells to really talk about them!

I had a great lunch table in 8th grade. Never before or since has my lunch group ever thrown me a birthday party. These folks went all out for my Blue's Clues birthday. Looking back, I don't know why I was such a huge fan of the show...maybe all that baby-sitting. I'll never forget that birthday...a great day of celebration...Blue's Clues style! Don't we look like a fun group??

I've always been an Icee fan. When I was little, we used to always stop at the Tom Thumb to get an Icee before going on trips. So, when my teacher asked a group of us if we would take a photo with some Icee cups so we could win a big Icee bear, I was all for it. The others happily joined when Mrs. Brittain offered extra points.

Laur,

1) we all looked pretty scary in middle school...hang in there, these next few posts will be redeeming 2)I think I remember every word to that poem 3) I don't know if she's seen it yet, but I'm sure it will get a great reaction when she does!
