I re-discovered a beat up shoebox of old notes I'd kept and of course I decided to read them. There was one this girl named Carlie in sixth grade had given me, titled "Lizzie the f*g," and said that I was jealous of her because these two guys in our class liked her and not me. It's true that I was pining away for one of them and it is beknown to me now why I ever did. She also called me fat on several occasions and got this other girl to look down upon me, too. It was one of my worst years in school. I don't know what I thought I had to gain from keeping these notes, but I guess I also figured there wasn't much to lose.
I think passing notes is a childish thing to do. Or maybe it's obsolete now that almost every teen has a cell phone and can text instantly. I say that it's somewhat childish because I didn't write a single note thus far in high school. Perhaps others still do and I just don't know or realize it?
This is a very tiny fuzz/wooden bear. Me and my friends in fourth grade used to collect and name them. They came in a variety of colors and some we pretended got married. In reality they go in bridal baskets or make tiny adornations to gifts and such. Yeah, we didn't care; they were our pride and joy.
This is my adorable plush Hamtaro. For those of you not familiar with the cute-as-a-button hamster named Hamtaro, he's basically just that but goes on adventures. It was a cartoon/anime show that I watched and fell in love with.
This is called a Boobah. [Don't judge me.] Someone brought one to school in fifth grade class for some reason and I was captivated with the thing. It radiates music, dances and farts. Lovely? No, quite terrifying. They come in different colors and yes, they are very much the rip-off of Teletubbies.
And now here's a shameful video of the actual Boobah show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJ-IIOXyMTA
Maybe this is why obesity has been an epidemic in America?? I dunno.
My day has consisted of being on the computer, cleaning/reminiscing and being lectured. I wish it wasn't so stormy out or maybe I'd be riding my bike and getting the much needed exercise. Not to mention just getting out.
