Sometimes, when life seems to be dragging us to new places where we don’t want to go, it can be fun to remember old times.

Do you remember 7th Grade? I remember some pretty weird things.

Back In My Day…

– We had advisory instead of this new-fangled seminar stuff.

– Sevies had giant planners the size of a sheet of paper.

– Instead of getting lost on the first floor and second floor, we got lost in A pod and C pod.

– Mr. Fletcher taught math.

– Navigating around the campus meant going OUTSIDE.

– All classrooms had 2 doors.

– Classroom numbers went 1,2,3,4…

– Car traffic was slightly less of a nightmare.

– Classes went 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th on normal days.

– Block days were every other week.

– Building felt like an elementary school as opposed to an office building.

– Bathrooms needed biohazard symbols on the outside.

– Stairs were a theoretical construct that applied to other people.

– Announcements actually worked and didn’t cut off half way through.

– We had a gym.

– We had 8 classrooms outside the main building, not 1.
