Hi! It’s Jilly. As I’ve been trying to make our apartment a home I’ve come across some…interesting things. One thing I found was my old junior high and high school yearbooks. Looking through them reminded me of how fun and awkward a time junior high is. Btw- isn’t “awkward” an awkward word?! Even typing it is awkward. Aack!
I thought I’d share with you guys some of the hilarious things from my old junior high year books. Join me on a blast from the past!
First, behold my 8th grade portrait. Uhm, can you say “Yikes”?! Wow. Just…wow.
Unfortunately, I only look slightly less geeky now. *sad face* But, what I really want to know is WHO picked out those frames?! They cover half my face!
The next gem is all those clever little poems people wrote in the book when signing their names. Here is a sampling of the amazing poetry found between these pages.
“God made wind/God made the waves/God made surfers/And surfers are babes.”
“Spring has sprung/Fall has fell/3 more months/And we’re back in jail.”
“When you are old an cannot see/Put on your specs and, of course, think of me.”
“I auto cry'/I auto laugh/That you would want my autograph.”
“Some write for money/Some write for fame/But I write only to sign my name.”
“God made rivers/God made lakes/God made you/We all make mistakes.”
Oh! And don’t forget the “crack” jokes! It is junior high, after all.
Another hilarious slash mortifying find was a picture taken during my English class. Check out that amazingly awesome sweater! It’s, like, “Ta daaaaaah!”. You are all hoping I still have that sweater so you can borrow it, I know.
The funniest thing in the whole book had to have been this.
What’s so funny about a choir picture? Everyone looks nice. Nothing out of place. Wait..why is there a “#8” written on the page? THAT, my friends is the most embarrassing part! Back when I was in junior high I went through my yearbook and marked every.single.time my crush appeared in the book!! As you can see, this was the 8th appearance. *shaking my head* Guys, please tell me I’m not the only boy-crazy, teenage girl to do something like this! Because if I am the only one, well…I don’t know what to say about that.
I hope you enjoyed our little junior high flash back today. To see me embarrass myself more, follow along through GFC, Facebook or Twitter. Stay cool! Have a fun summer! Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do!
