Today, one of my best friends is having a baby shower for her very first baby! In honor of this momentous occasion, I would like to reflect a bit on her past.
Sarah is a a beautiful woman now but we’ve all had our awkward middle school/high school years, and yes, Sarah did.
This is my interpretation of her as a middle schooler. She told me how much she loved komodo dragons and angels. That was enough right there to draw a picture of it.
Remember how I told you about how I wrote multiple papers on Siamese cats? The second was only because I was going to do a paper on the Great Depression in eighth grade but it was too depressing (true story) so I chose to write about how Siamese cats make good pets. Have I ever had one? No. But was I convinced of their pet-worthiness and of sharing that information with my teachers? Yes.
Well, Sarah had to write a paper with a persuasive element, too. She decided to write about angels being real. I’d like to point out that this was a research-based paper; her teacher pointed this out, too. Sarah’s teacher tried to convince her that this might not be the best decision for a research paper, but Sarah in her infinite (yet lovable) stubbornness said, “Nope. I’m going to do it. Someone else already did a paper like this, so I’ll be fine.”
Oh, Sarah. Hahha. Luckily for me as her friend, she has moved on to a wider variety of interests that I can share an interest in, too. Sometimes.
