10th Grade..I Can Still Remember!









Tenth Grade, where I lived, was the beginning of high school.  For me, it was a time to forget all of the stupid things I did in junior high, as well and to look forward to the fresh herd of young boys on which to crush!  I loved all of activities that were offered outside of the classes, especially the dances.  Our winter dance (they really don't have winter in Southern California) was an excuse to "clean up" and wear fancy clothes during the month of December.  This dance was traditionally a "girl-ask-boy" dance, which I loved because it meant that I would not have to sit around waiting for someone to ask me if I wanted to go with them. 

As soon as the dance date was announced, I wasted no time in asking a boy that I had a crush on, and to my amazement, he said "yes."  This boy was very popular, an athlete, and drop-dead gorgeous.  My jaw hit the ground when he accepted.  His name was Greg.  We double-dated with another couple, went to dinner at a fancy beach restaurant, and then danced the night away in my school's gym.  It was a magical night for me, and one of the absolutely perfect experiences of my entire high school career!

That sounds like a wonderful memory. Did you and Greg continue to date or was this a one-time magical evening?

Me too! They were some of my happiest days. Also a lot of new beginnings and firsts for me. (9th grade was my very first prom. Delightful post.

Stopping by from Mama Kat's. So glad your memory was a good one! As I started reading, I was afraid it was going to be one of those things where the boy you're crushing on says "yes" but then doesn't show up for the dance or something of that nature. So, I was so glad to read about the enjoyable evening you had!

What a cool memory. And look at the "do." What year was that?

Look at you go! I never would have had the nerve to ask a boy out and just look at all the fun I missed out on!
