My great aunt just emailed me a PDF of a homework assignment I sent her when I was seven-years-old. I thought I would share a screen shot of it here on my blog. The best part is definitely the last sentence, haha!
I guess I always liked food and writing. And writing about food. And making sure my pets were alive.
On a random note, please tell me you’ve heard of stink bugs. It seems like they magically appear in Pittsburgh when the seasons change, or if we have a warm spell in colder months. I have been having such a struggle with these bugs! I have literally found dozens of them inside my truck the past few days.
The worst feeling is when I’m driving and I know a stink bug is flying around in my truck. I end up making faces like this.
Confused. Scared. Mad. All kinds of emotions going on.
Also, thanks to everyone who said they liked my fall-ish outfit in my last post! The jean jacket? I borrowed it from Hannah… without her knowing 😉
Have you seen/heard of stink bugs?
(If I see one more I’m going to cry. Just kidding. But not really..)
Did you have a favorite subject in elementary school?
(Mine were gym and English!)
stink bugs are the worst, they scare the crap out of me. so cute, I love finding old writing gems like that
Me too! They just come out of nowhere and swoop in for the attack haha,
That is the cutest! Oh to be a kid again 🙂
Thank you… and I agree. I wish I could be a little kid again sometimes!
I think I wrote something like that in 1999 for my second grade class too. Haha, fun times :P!
That’s pretty cool! If you find it, you should totally post it 🙂
My favorite subjects as a kid were probably reading and spelling… and then of course in like 7th grade we stopped those subjects and it became “language and literature” and that wasn’t very fun :(. Oh well. Pretty cool that you were writing about your animals back then too!
Haha I know what you mean! I liked reading classes… but when they got a lot harder–like studying grammar–I kinda hated them.
Haha! I love that last sentence, too!
I was just talking to my mom the other day and she was complaining about the stinkbugs, too. Fortunately, it’s not a HUGE issue where they live, but they still get a handful that sneak into the house. Do you remember seeing news coverage of people who had to literally sweep piles of them off their porch? UGH!
YES! That is crazy! I guess I’m kinda lucky I don’t have to sweep them out of my truck LOL!
NO STINK BUGS in LA… BUT… SOOOOOO many in Colorado and Wyoming (where I am from)… SOOOOO many! They’re like my extended cousins. LOL
I’m glad you’re not getting any in LA!!
I always loved English. So great that you wrote about food & pets!
Me too! I guess that explains why we love blogging 🙂
That is quite lovely.
Stink bugs were up and around Potsdam as well as where Tim lives in PA. I hate those guys along with skunks.
Yep–stink bugs and skunks. Ugh!
That is so nice Allie, what a fun blast from the past!
I can’t say I’ve ever encountered stink bugs, but what probably flip a sh*t if one was in my car! i’m a big pansy when it comes to bugs, and ones flying on the inside of my car? NOT OKAY!
Ahh, you’re SO lucky you haven’t encountered any stink bugs. Like SO lucky haha!!
You were a wonderful writer, even in 1999! All your talk of Thanksgiving dinner made me hungry.
I don’t know if the stink bugs we have in my area are the same as the kind in your area…. I don’t think that ours can fly…. But maybe that’s their ploy and they’re trying to pass themselves off as undercover non-fliers and then terrify me by taking flight at a moment when I least expect it. Now I’m worried….
Aw, shucks! Thank you 🙂
I hope the stink bug by you don’t fly. That would be awful!!
I hate stink bugs.
*sigh* me too. One of the only good things about winter in PA is that it’s too cold for them to pester me 🙂
You wrote that when you were SEVEN?! That’s amazing, girl! You definitely have always had a gift for writing! Also, I too am glad that you came home to all of your pets being alive and well. That certainly is good. 😉
Haha yup, thank you!! I do love writing!
GRRRR STINK BUGS!!!! But heck yes for that Thanksgiving awesomeness…you were a great 7 year old I am sure 🙂
Yes… I hate the stink bugs with a passion!!
“All my pets are alive and that is good” — LOL! 🙂 That is such a great sentence!
Haha I was just cracking up when I read that… like what was I thinking?!
