Tonight I visited my middle school. It was Parent Night & my sister’s in 8th grade & the 8th graders were selling various things to raise money for Japan. The first class my dad & I visited was Civics. My former teacher, one of my favorites, Mr. Morra was the one in charge of it. Being in the classroom with him teaching the parents about some things students can do online to study made me really miss 8th grade. Memories came back to me, but some things that I tried to remember, I couldn’t. I had to stop myself from reminiscing because I knew that I would get teary-eyed. I got a hug from him before leaving the classroom & talked to him for a little while before he left the school. I also saw Ms. Roesch during Earth Science. She didn’t remember me, but she said I looked familiar.
8th grade was when AKM (Aileen-Kim-Morgan) formed. It happened in Mrs. Butler’s class because we had to think of groups we belonged to. Peter kept kicking one of the three of us out to add his own name.
8th grade was when we (Kim, Morgan, Amelfa, & I) met the Jonas Brothers. I don’t wanna go into that ‘cause it would take forever (‘: AMAZING DAY, I’ll leave it at that.
In 8th grade we had a Civics project that involved making a business or something. AKM was in their Blade of Glory phase & named theirs K Boom, but when Mr. Morra said it, he said Kaboom. When we corrected him, he said that he wanted to call in Kaboom instead, haha.
In Earth Science, somehow Kim always got away with switching seats to sit by me.
When Kim got partnered with her ex-boyfriend for 6 Minute Solution, we got my partner Zach to trade with her. One time we read our excerpts in country accents & couldn’t stop laughing.
On B days, when we had algebra with Amelfa, I remember them passing my fanfic folder around to read the chapter I wrote.
I can’t even remember anything bad from 8th grade ‘cause it doesn’t even matter now. The things I’m learning as a senior can’t even compare to the material I had to learn back then. I really do miss it. I’m going to graduate from high school soon. I’ll never have a schedule filled with the same people in each class. AKM will never have another class together.
It’s time to make the most of my senior year. I know I’m going to miss it.
