So I'm pretty sentimental. I have a great big box filled with every card I've ever been given. My mom started saving them for me when I was a kid and since then, I've kept 'em all. I can't imagine throwing a card away. I also have boxes of letters from my school days. Remember how we used to sneak them to each other between books and pass them to each other in the hallway? Ah yes, those were the days before Facebook and Twitter. Heck, we didn't even have cell phones until matric if I remember correctly? Most of my besties are scattered all around the world now and my heart pines for them. When we see each other, it's as if not a day has gone by and it truly is one of the best feelings in the world. Sometimes when I've had a bad day or I haven't been able to catch up with one of them, I dive into my box of letters and have a good laugh at our epic teenage dramas!
No names mentioned of course but here are some excerpts from the Exam Pad letters I will cherish forever:
LaLa, nothings wrong but I'm hot and bothered and worried 4 the 50000000 pages of BE we have to learn. This class sux. Thanks anyway Lala!
Lorr-in, D phoned me last night and he's going to give me one of his tapes that he's mixed himself. I love D. I gotta go cuz Pieters is trying to read this.
2 Lala, Thanx for the letter. I agree that we need to sort our love lives out.
La, I'm in history with the yelling pyscho. geeeez! I'm glad you're going to gym today, I think I'm going to try the super circuit. It's been a while buddy.
Hi, I just want you to know that I am always here for you, if you need anything, call me, whenever.
I don't understand why everyone is so bitchy. I guess it happens in all girls' schools. But the thing that you have to remember is not to take any notice if it.
I have LOTS of scoops. Won't tell you now...no time...as the bell is going to go. I went to movies and coffee with him..it was so great
I'm looking forward to tomorrow night but I am panicking. AHHHHH!!
J is so evil but I guess I still like him. This class is full of blairs. Well I have no scoops!
To Lorr-in, hey, guess what. I just got shat on by a teacher and it has ruined my whole day.
I'll give you more scoops later. I hate writing scoops.This woman is so irritating. But yes, we'll speak.
Well I'm in the crud. Speaking of which, you owe me some scoops. Hehe. Bye bye beavis.
L.O.L We sure were into 'the scoops' back then. Little terrors we all were. Haha. Love you guys. x
