Social networks are really helpful huh? They can reconnect you to friends from the past, used to stalk your ex or current boyfriend, or if you’re anything like me.. search up that one kid you swore you were immensely in love with in 6th grade. That kid was Chris Adams. Oh, Chris. We had three classes together and he had 180 days to learn my name. But he didn’t. I can’t blame him. I was pretty dorky. (and let’s face it, I still am) Those days I would talk myself up to starting a conversation with him and in response I’d be lucky enough to get one word out of him. I remember one day in Language Arts, the teacher seated him in the desk right in front of me. One month later we we’re working on a class project. He turns to me and says,” Hey girl, can I use your ruler?” Girl?
Way to stomp on a girl’s heart, Chris.
I guess that’s why they call them “crushes”.
Hopefully in 10 years when I look back at my high school days I won’t be considered as lame as I was 5 years ago. And hopefully Chris Adams will notice me then too.
A girl can hope.
