Here is your FWF prompt:

Time & Place

It’s your first day of junior high school

My Junior High was grades 7 – 12…

Leaving Elementary School to what we called High School…

I couldn’t wait!…

I was growing up…

I would be entering into my last years of school

The subjects were changing…

Algebra…Humanities…Spanish…Physics…Geometry…

psc0015

Such a different array of classes with different teachers for each…SSH0015

Moving from class to class with in-between chats with other students hurrying along in the hallways…gdo0056

Sometimes another floor… sometimes cutting through the breeze way outside…

Going to a locker that was all mineCombination of numbers keeping it safe!….                                      u12930373jba0400

Restrooms for girls with mirrors to primp in…k10359530

Lunchroom filled with laughter…noise…and food that no one seemed to be eating…x21738989

Sitting with friends…k6972014

Eyeing the boys that seemed to think “they were all that!”… car0303

and some girls too!…

The quiet kids… the popular kids… the poor kids… the rich…

A beginning of how life would be once High School was over…

Lessons were being learned… not, just from books… but, by experiences of those youthful feelings

What did I want to be?

Where did I want to go?

Who would I remain close to?

Who would exit… never to hear from again?

What was my destination?k12809880

No money for college…

A job, perhaps…

Lots of us went to the work force at this time in my life…

Not a bad thing…

But, some dreams seemed shattered…

Some hopes never fulfilled…

An empty spot… that still needs to be filled…
