I N V U 4 U R A Q T

In a couple weeks I will be speaking to a bunch of students about how to be intentional with your time at school. In order to start preparing for that, I thought it would be a good idea to remind myself what it was like to be in junior high and high school.




This is the first time I remember going through my yearbooks, and it was so much more fun than I could have imagined.

But man, if there is one thing that’s absolutely for sure, it’s that if I went back to high school now I would OWN it. I would crush high school.

I’d be amazing.

What I want to focus on right now, though, is the worst best thing ever:

Junior high yearbook signatures. (This is the fun part.)

For my future enjoyment, and for your present enjoyment, I’ve typed up some of my favorites with a quick response underneath.

“remember the good times!”
 -(what if there weren’t any?)

-Oh hey man it’s so good to see you thanks for stopping by!

“Hey sweets! Have a good summer!”

“Hey Tyler, I
-I 100% did not have fun.

“Hey sexy!”
-No. I looked like I was 7.


So glad I’m 25.
