All About You in 52, Week 11

My teens years were awkward, I was shy...don't laugh I really was very shy, I felt ugly and wanted people to like me. Does this not sound like a typical teenager? I wanted a moment in High School that I could call my own moment. I didn't make the cheerleading team. Whatever made me think to try out with this very shy person. Can you imagine me whispering "go Wildcats." LOL I tried for the debate team. Again where do I get these ideas. I was chosen to go to state. I threw up so much I could not go. Again, what was I thinking? I was thinking I need to be remembered. I put a lot of years into this school and I wanted something special for me. FHA Historian, boyfriends (not many), class representative for Student Council but it just didn't seem special.

I was determined to have a special moment.
"What was your best Teenage Moment You Remember?"

Here is my answer:

WE'RE #1
Basketball Fever 1976 -1977

I was never athletic like mom. she was the star on her high school teams. 1976 Bethlehem started a girls team. I was dating a Basketball player who spent weeks teaching me the game to shoot, free throw, what defense moves to make and how to protect the ball. At least 50 girls went out for the team.

I would never believe I could make it. I did, I did! One downside I wrenched my knee right before the season stared, but I was ready to go by the second game. The most famous shot I make was a hook shot! I loved being on the BHS Girls Basketball team.

  17. Teenage life was a kind of hell for me so I was surprised to need two layouts to cover my best teenage moment. I don't know the exact moment that was the best, but I know it happened in one of two places. This layout shows the first. Hopefully you can read the journaling. (Don't you just love my fellow artist and his see-food?)
