Like, OMG, You Guys!...

So I came across something pretty classic while surfing the internet today at work. After finishing the newest episodes of I Love Money, Entourage, True Blood, The Cho Show, and Best Week Ever, understandably I was bored and didn't know with what to fill the rest of my day. And then I found this...

Back in junior high, my friends and I would write each other notes in class all of the time! We (or more commonly, I) would start with a sheet of looseleaf in first period, right about a page and a half, and then pass it to a friend to respond in the next period. I was always the one who wrote the most, though I can't vouch for the level of content. Mostly, I was just always bored (I guess some things really never change!) and refused to take real notes in class, so I'd write to keep myself busy and also looking like I was working productively should my teacher glance my way. For awhile (well into high school, when those I had been close with since kindergarten and I had all gone our separate ways) I kept those tattered sheets of paper, folded into tiny squares and paper footballs, in a "memory box" in the drawer under my bed, but I tossed them before I moved out to California. For awhile, I was kind of bummed I purged myself of my past in such a way, but now I'm super glad I did, though, because I know just how embarrassing it would be if one of my childhood friends still had them and scanned them for that website!
