Except when I was in middle school, it was Junior High. And it was only 7th and 8th.
I dug this out and scanned it in to put on the get in touch page of my website.
It's the cover for an English project from 7th grade. I loved my 7th grade English teacher. And he thought I was talented. I still remember I wrote a poem which he read aloud to the class. I wish I still had it, but at his point, I only remember the first two lines:
A tiny shrew named Sammy came from his home one day.
He smelled blood from a human, and the sun let out a ray.
Genius, I know. :)
