My family recently visited me. And afterward my parents sent me the pictures they took. In the envelope, they also included a suspension notice that they received while I was in junior high. I guess they were trying to remind of how much of a hassle I was to raise? At any rate, I got in big trouble for this. I still remember how upset my mom was with me while driving me home that day. I did what I did because I was dumb and impulsive and was trying to act out in front of friends in order to maybe impress them.

About 9 years later I saw this same yard duty staff member working at the downtown Borders. I apologised to him for my past behavior. Junior high was probably the period in my life when I was at my most misguided and jerky. I tried to turn around after this incident.
