My 5th Grade Self

Location: The desk (again, but by choice this time)
Listening to: Fez on "That 70's Show"
Day's til Graduation: 48

Alright, I swore not to describe my day today, because I want to try something different. Not even the part where I practiced my duet with White Chocolate again and it was amazing. Or how I had to wait half an hour to practice because he was practicing with this other group or how he told me that he really just wanted to be done with the other song he's doing because practicing with me is more fun.

I will tell you about one thing from today: I got my 5th Grade Time Capsule. In 5th grade, we filled out this worksheet and put it in an envelope with whatever else we wanted to send to ourselves when we graduated. And it had questions like "Favorite Songs" and "Favorite books" and that type of thing. I'll give you the highlights:

Favorite Songs/Musical Artists: Avril Lavigne, Mandy Moore, Bowling for Soup, Simple Plan, All American Rejects, Good Charlotte, Elvis, and Harry Connick Jr. (I had an eclectic taste, even back then. This was 11-year-old me. I still like most of them, except Mandy Moore. I'm pretty sure I only ever heard her sing in The Princess Diaries and A Walk to Remember. Yeaaahhh.)

Favorite Books/Magazines: The Upstairs Room, Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl, The Hermit Thrush Sings, and Nancy Drew. (It amuses me that most of these books are about oppression/the Holocaust. I was an odd child.)

Favorite Clothes: Jeans, T-shirt, cool socks. (Cool socks. Definitely a winner.)

Classes You Did Well In: All of them. (It's true. I was a pretty smart kid. Modest, too.)

And this is the freaky one...

What are your future plans?: To become a writer, travel the world, and still have time to sit back and read a good book. (Some things never change.)

 There was also this:

Apparently I was going to send myself one of my favorite pens, but I forgot or lost it or something. So I drew a picture of my dog next to a tree with a wobbly looking sun shining over everything. And a smiley face leering in the corner. Cool, right?

And Hannah, to answer your question, I explain it fully here, but the short version is: My friend Jess and I love this movie (Fanboys), and one of the nerdy/cute guys calls himself "White Chocolate". And my White Chocolate is nothing like the one in the movie, but he's equally awesome. So Jess decided that that is his code name. Classy, huh?

Well, folks, I think that's it for today. Thanks for the awesome comments and such. If there's anything you think I should write about, lemme know. I'm open to ideas. :)


  1. Something's going down in that picture. If I were that dog I would not trust the disembodied smiley face.

  2. We were so cute back then.
    My English teacher in 9th grade had us write letters to our senior selves...we get them back on graduation day and I can't wait!!

    And thanks for the clarification..that's too funny :)
