Diary of a 7th grader

As my mom was cleaning out my childhood closet for the final time before I head out West, she came across a ziploc bag filled to the brim with notes from Junior high.  She brought them to me without reading them (she says…and gosh I hope) and I couldn’t be more happy!  What a treat to read all of the garbage that was going on with my hormonal pre-pubescent self! haha

(Disclaimer: I would love to give more context for these excerpts, but I honestly don’t remember what they were about.  Just pre-teen glory)

Here are some awesome excerpts either from me or to me:

“3 seats in front of me just asked me out!!!  I want to say no really bad, but I feel terrible cause he is my friend and it will be awkward.  ugh!  Why can’t the guy I like ask me out?” (ain’t that the truth sista!)

Who’s coming to this shindig of a party?  Gotta see if you guys are cool enough for me.” (I didn’t realize anybody was cool in Junior high)

You should ask anyways, the worst she can do is say ‘no’, and while that does hurt at least you keep your options open.”  (good to know I haven’t given any new advice since 7th grade…also that I’ve followed my own advice for almost 10 years now)

“When I get a secret, you can know 1st (that’s what friends are for haha)

I don’t know if this is a repeated online conversation, or if somebody made it up, but it is hilarious (initials changed for privacy)!

L-“I’m cold”
P-“I could think of a few things that can warm you up besides a hot shower…”
L-“so…”
P-“How far would you go with a guy?”
L-“depends on the guy”
P-“So how far with me?”
L-“I dunno”
P-“I wish you were here right now…”
L-“Bye. I gotta go vote”

Is that hackie sack for anger management?” (there was a crying face drawn next to this)

I ❤ him to death.  We skipped 2nd hour together and just sat and talked, but I still don’t know what’s going to happen cuz I kinda wanna be free right now too.” (I like that 13 year old girls are talking about “being free”)

Do you have perfume I can use?  Like Tommy or something?  You’re in French right?  Did u know that next year we get to go to France?”  (such a coherent train of thought, and also not true in the slightest)

I got such a kick out of reading these, but I am very glad I’m no longer in Junior high.
