Me during 8th grade. The journaling reads: 1995-1996 was a good year. My friends were Ashley James, Zack Rice, and Tammy Smith. I was a class officer. I was voted Most Academic, Ashley and I were competing for valedictorian at our graduation. I had a crush on the popular senior boy that everyone liked. I played basketball and loved it. The only fight I almost got into during the year was avoided by my quick wit and everyone watching. I felt like I was on top of the world in 8th grade.
