I found a treasure from my past today all the way back from1988……my writing journal from my 8th grade language arts class. Just thinking about it now as I write brings a smile to my face. Oh my to re-read my entries and actually recall the words that were on the paper made me gasp just a bit. What I really enjoyed most was seeing entries from my old classmates. All of them I went through elementary school with. I would love to have a reunion with my elementary class. I have very sweet memories from my elementary years. I sat and wondered where some of them might be today and what they were up to. Some of the entries I found was a questionnaire with questions like: Where will you be in 20 years, What did kids say about you in your younger years, What is something you have learned about life….The responses were very juvenile but sweet. So many kids answered ” a rich millionaire” for where will you be in 20 years. ( I wonder if any of them became just that)
I have said this many times over, time goes by so fast and today was just another reminder of that. I am glad I stumbled across it today. I wish I had journaled all my life so I could look back and see how much I have grown and overcome the daily trials and tribulations life throws at us. But each time I told myself today I should start to journal, I never did.

What’s even more adorable is that your post includes a reference to Ferris Bueller’s Day off:
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Memories!
I always find it VERY interesting to look back at old writing. But it usually seems better left in the past, lol.
