My typical day in Junior High...
Wake up and put on the shirt that four of us bought at L.A. Gear on Saturday, along with my coveted acid washed Guess jeans and my jean jacket. Curl my bangs into oblivion while the rest of my stick straight hair hangs doing absolutely nothing. Perfect.
Head out the door on my ten speed to meet up with my other friends who are riding bikes today. Three of them are wearing "the shirt and jeans" as planned. We arrive at school and go to our first class. As people start to notice that we match, we act very cool, as though nothing out of the ordinary were happening? "What? Did we plan this? No, this is just one of those crazy coincidences that are unexplainable." And then we go about our business.
Classes are sometimes fun, sometimes not fun. You've got to love Mr. Hamilton and his giant tub of Costco blow pops that he sells to the students. As long as you're not obnoxious with them, he doesn't mind if you eat them in class. What's that you say, Mr. Hamilton? Only three people didn't lie on their homework yesterday, and didn't change their answer to the one you gave out, which couldn't have possibly been correct? And I'm one of them? And Pennie's NOT?! Wow, thanks for the kudos. She'll awkwardly lie her way out of it later.
Lunchtime! We convene on the sidewalk right in front of the painted mustang picture on a classroom. There's about 10 of us most of the time, give or take a few, and it's especially nice on a cold day when we can huddle together and keep warm. They won't let us into the library or the cafeteria on the coldest days, because for some reason, they hate us. That's all I can figure.
After I enjoy my home made by me lunch, we're all off to "walk around." No special place to be...no goal or end point...we'll just walk around. And look cool with our matching clothes.
Time to go home! We ride our bikes back to our neighborhood, after a stop at the Fremont Market for some Popsicles. Back home again, and on goes the t.v. for some after school MTV. Because it's all about the music videos on MTV, and I'm hoping to catch Vanilla Ice or Salt n Pepa today. Homework? Yeah, whatever.
After a nice home cooked dinner, we head into the family room to watch the latest rental from The Wherehouse -- a favorite past time for all. Eventually I head to my room to listen to some Debbie Gibson or Tiffany on KMEL, before turning in for the night in my very yellow themed bedroom. What a day.
