I enjoyed myself the most during seventh and eighth grade– I don’t remember having any negative experiences. All my friends then are still my friends now, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. It felt like there were no real concerns or pressure from school back then.
The only thing I can remember worrying about during middle school was what I was going to wear to the dances.
I had some of the best times at those dances. Even though I danced like no one was watching, I felt like everyone in the room was staring at me. It was always so awkward but so much fun at the same time. I remember always being so nervous before the dances, but as soon as I got out there on that dance floor, all my worries went away.
I guess you could say that dancing was my way of escape during middle school. Whenever I felt like things were getting too overwhelming or stressful, I would just put on my favorite song and dance like no one was watching. It was a way for me to let go of all my pent-up frustrations and just have fun.
Even though middle school is over, I still look back on those years with fond memories. They were some of the best years of my life and I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world.
What I loved most about middle school was the camaraderie of my class. It seemed like everyone was friends with everyone, and we all hung out together often. Of course, within our class there were still kids who gravitated towards each other more than others and were considered “best friends”, but the overall closeness of our class remained unchanged.
I remember going to dances together and homecoming games. We would go on field trips and do fun projects together in class. I think this closeness was partly because we were all going through the same things together. We were at that awkward stage in our lives where we were just figuring out who we were and who we wanted to be. We were all figuring out our place in the world.
I think this is why middle school was such an important time for me. I feel like it shaped who I am today. I learned how to be a friend and how to be there for someone during their teenage years. These are important lessons that I carry with me to this day. I am so grateful for my middle school memories and the friends that I made during that time.
Whenever someone’s birthday rolled around, we went absolutely nuts. That meant it was time for a birthday party – and boy, did we know how to throw one. I don’t know how we had so much fun at these parties but we always did. Playing hide and seek and spin the bottle seemed to be the best ingredients for a party that would be talked about on Monday mornings.
Our group also liked to go to the dances that were held in the gym. We would all meet up beforehand and do each other’s hair and makeup. It was always a big production. But it was worth it because we looked fabulous and we knew it. We would dance the night away and have so much fun. I remember one time, one of my friends got asked to prom by a guy she really liked.
She was so excited and we were all happy for her. But then she found out that he only asked her because he needed someone to drive him there since his car had broken down. Needless to say, she was pretty upset about that. But in the end, she went with him anyway and they had a great time.
I believe that the 7th and 8th grade dances will always hold a special place in the hearts of everyone who attended. It was so much fun being able to go to a dance and just hang out with all our closest friends while wearing jeans and a t-shirt. The best part was when all the girls would get into a big circle and make the boys, who were chasing each other around the gym, dance with them.
Then we would all just hang out and talk and dance with whoever. I remember at our eighth grade dance there were a lot of girls crying because it was the last time we would all be together before going to high school.
I don’t think that anyone really knows what they’re doing in high school. We’re all just trying to figure it out as we go. For me, I was really involved in theatre and that was my main focus. I didn’t go to many dances, but I did go to prom. That was a fun night. I remember getting ready with my friends and taking pictures. It’s funny looking back now at how serious we all thought everything was.
High school is a time when you figure out who you are and what you want to do with your life. It’s a time of self-discovery and growth. For some people, it’s the best four years of their lives. Others find it to be a difficult time. Either way, it’s a time that we all remember and look back on fondly (or not so fondly).
I loved to dance, so I and a few of my pals were usually the first ones on the floor, whether or not there were girls. Along with these ballroom dances came early adolescent drama such as a breakup or two people getting together at the dance that night would be the topic of discussion.
I liked to think of myself as being pretty good at these dances. I was always one of the first ones out on the dance floor and I would usually stay there until the very end.
When I look back at my middle school days, they were some of the best times of my life. Even though I was never really popular, I had a great group of friends that I loved spending time with. We would go to the movies, out to eat, and just hang out together. We would also go to dances together and have so much fun.
Those were definitely some of the best memories from my middle school years. Even though things may have been a little bit awkward at times, overall it was a great experience that I will never forget.
