Fun Fact Friday

It’s that time again!

I’m calling today the Middle School Edition

  1. I learned how to type in the sixth grade the old-fashioned way: stickers on the keys. I can still type without looking at the keyboard.
  2. I used to freak out my students by looking up but still typing.
  3. I got asked to my first dance in seventh grade–the Valentine’s dance at school.
  4. We met there and he ignored me the entire night–good times.
  5. I wore a red t-shirt,white, tight-rolled jeans, and Reebok high tops.
  6. I broke my ankle in the eighth grade.
  7. I was trying to do a high-kick in cheer leading practice, I stepped on it wrong, and crack.
  8. When I told the cheer leading advisor it really hurt, she told me to stop whining and put some ice on it.
  9. I got my first two C’s in middle school–one in Spanish and one in Intro to Physics.
  10. I never took physics again–not in high school or college.
  11. I’ve managed to get on fine without it.

  1. I've never taken physics, either!

  2. sitting on the mood swing at the playground says:

    I love it that you remember what you wore on your date! Everyone teases me because I can identify when a photo was taken by what I was wearing.

    Also, intro to physics in middle school? Yikes!

  3. Small Town Girl says:

    What exactly were the stickers on the keyboard for?

    Yeah, intro to physics?!?! I don't think we even HAD physics in my high school!

  4. The stickers on the keyboard were there so you couldn't see the letters–you had to learn to type from memory.

  5. White Hot Magik says:

    Tight rolled jeans….was there too girl.

    I thought the reason physics was tough because it was one of the last classes I took in college and it challenged so many preconceived incorrect notions I had. I worked really hard for B.

    I got a C first nine weeks in typing only class I really recall having to work hard at in junior high.
