I was homeschooled until 7th grade, so I was pretty embarrassingly awkward when I finally hit the strange world of public education. I didn't even know who Ricky Martin was (hey, it was 1999!)
then you're going to hate hearing that I was in 5th grade in 1999.
Oh, it's nothing personal against any of you guys. It just makes me feel ancient.
In all truth, I am constantly impressed by traditional students. I definitely did NOT have the motivation and dedication to be premed at 18, 19, 20... So in short, props to you youngin's. I better go get back to my knitting and water aerobics.
Funny how the vast majority of people aren't normal.
I was definitely a huge nerd in middle school.
I guess some things never change.
I moved across the country in the summer between 6th and 7th grade. I was the new kid all through middle school. In high school I was one of the overachievers....speech team, NHS, National Merit, research at my local university, hospital volunteering.....you know, part of that group of kids whose conversation consists almost exclusively of talking about how busy they are. Sometimes I think back on that time and annoy myself. I definitely had NO FUN in middle school or high school.....
i peaked in 4th grade.. the two hottest girls in class liked me and i didn't know what girls were back then so it drove them crazy. plus i had this sick indian costume that i wore for halloween with real like handmade bows and arrows. i think that was the year i roundhouse kicked a soccer goal from midfield too.. it's been downhill since.
