Middle School Memories
Seventh and eighth grade years of school were the most fun for me. I can't remember a bad experience within these two years. I hung out with all the same friends back then as I do now and I wouldn't have it any other way. It seemed as though through middle school there was absolutely nothing to worry about and no real pressure from the school. My favorite part of middle school was how close our crazy class was. Everyone was friends with everyone and we all hung out together. Everyone still had their “best friends”, little groups within our class. These kids were with each other more than with other friends, but the class as a whole was still very close. We all went crazy when someone was about to have a birthday because that meant birthday party. I don't know how we had so much fun at these but we did. Playing hide and seek and spin the bottle seemed to be the best ingredients for a party that would be talked about on Monday. I think that everyone in my class will always remember our seventh and eighth grade dances. Going to a dance in jeans and a t-shirt to have fun with all of our closest friends was a highlight. It usually started out with all the girls in a circle eventually making the boys, who were chasing each other around the gym, dance with them. But I loved to dance, so I and a couple of my friends were usually the first ones dancing, with or without the girls. Along with these dances came some early teen drama like a break up or a couple getting together at the dance. They would be the subject of conversation for that night. At school we were in our own world and, looking back, I wish it never ended. I believe that all the good memories that came from middle school are what keep us so close as a class. Now that I am in my senior year it seems like all everyone talks about are the memories of when we were younger. This subject never seems to get old.
