56

Song: Understatement
Artist: New Found Glory
Memory age: 13
Current age: 23

Eighth grade. 2003. I’ve just started to come out of my shell, and have emerged wearing fishnets with short, bleached blonde hair. I’ve recently started the tie-wearing trend at school. I have a following of about four, mostly fellow nerds. My parents have an empty rental house in the city, so I’ve decided to have a party. We spend the day playing pool and tetherball, piling everyone onto a hammock, rollerblading, and jamming out to music. Our tunes of choice? Anything by Good Charlotte, New Found Glory, or Avril Lavigne. What? It’s the eighth grade– everything sucks and we’re full of teen angst.
