-Earlier today, I decided to celebrate the seven year anniversary of Syracuse’s 1st NCAA Men’s National Title (in basketball) by tweeting what I went through that day.
Well it ended early and badly
. I was mistakenly tweeting #5yrsAGO instead of #7yrsAGO, so I’m going to do it here instead in 3 parts spreading out through the week.)
(Part 1-Early morning-April 7th, 2003. Syracuse, New York. On my way to Corcoran High School, Freshmen Year, Senior Class of 2006)
-Today is the big day, feels like nothing (if I admit that, I’ll smack my own self)
-Can’t…Breathe…ran to catch…the bus….my heart……gonna die…I picked the worst…day………….to die.
-OK I’m alright, now onto school, and (feels like crying) EARTH SCIENCE.
-Today marks the day I no longer fall asleep on the bus. I gon…..
-School? Crap I didn’t again.
-OK, on to my first class, Social Studies. Want to expect, ITS SOCIAL STUDIES.
-Well that was WAAAAAY too long, but it’s now the class Earth "Freckin" Science. Freckin trees and leaves and flowers and…trees.
-I really don’t like science. Will grass, trees and rocks and the earth’s projection mean anything 7 years from now? (Future self-NO)
-Why do I have to go there? Why do I have to take Earth Science? Why am I walking around the school for? What the heck is a Jayhawk?
-I mean really, what the heck is it? (Realizes the logo is a bird) Oh, never mind (leave me alone, I was a high school freshmen in 2003-yes I’m that young).
-OK class is about to start. Why is this room so small? Why am I all creeped out in here? Does a Science loving Mass Murder secretly take residence here?
-Should I by paying more attention to the teacher instead of asking questions? Why yes I should.
-What is going on? Man this class is stressful. But hey, the girl behind me is cute (quick note-That person became a friend a couple years later).
-OK, big game tonight so I have a *valid excuse to not pay attention. What happened in 1996 will not happen again. I hope. Yeah, I better pray before the game.
-Is class over? Come on end NOW? (Note-all of my classes in high school were 80 minutes long. Yeah it sucked.).
-Hey why is everyone talking about the game for? Shouldn’t we…What am I talking about.
-Everyone is Pro-Cuse so far. Of course they have to be…OR ELSE
(THANKS FOR READING, UP NEXT…WATERED DOWN DRINKS, SNOW, AND THIS ONE SONG THAT THEY KEPT PLAYING.
*A excuse for being dumb-Yeah I was young wasn’t I?
