I was a cool kid.

Style came naturally to me.
Alright, dear friends, family, and strangers who read this blog. We're replacing all the carpet in our house, so today I had to take everything out of my closet. Which I haven't seen the floor/back of for probably 10 years or so. It was an enlightening experience, as I tried to decide what to keep and what to throw away. I learned that I hoard empty boxes, I've already got a large collection of tacky piggy banks, and I was meant to be a wizard, proven by my Harry Potter Potions kit I found on the top shelf.
The most exciting things I found however, proved to be old journals. And a time capsule, put together in 2002 when I was in 3rd grade. Along with pictures of puppies, pictures of the Olympics, and several useless trinkets, I found a questionnaire, which I thought I'd share with all of you. Enjoy.

Isn't that great? I told you, I was one cool kid. Anyways, I also found some journals which had classic entries such as these:
1/13/2000: Last night we went and got mialke-shakes. I got Cholte Mosheloe.
4/6/2000: Today is Seans birthday. Sean almoes got hit by a car!
2/28/2001: I am sorry I haven't writen for a long time. I have been sooooo busy. I made a Diary today. I hope Kelsey doesn't see it. I will try to write more.

As you can tell, I had a wonderful childhood.
