My Treasured Chest - 8th Grade Yearbook

This post is part of the "My Treasured Chest" series where I post about findings from my cedar chest. You can read about how it all began at the My Treasured Chest - The Beginning post.

I've kept every yearbook of every school year from kindergarten to my senior year.  This one is from 8th grade.  It shouldn't be too hard to pick out which one is me, considering all the rest shown are guys.  I was sporting a hot pink and black scarf to complement my sky-high bangs.  Not to mention that the sides of my hair were so far out there I could've taken flight at any moment.  The boy pictured next to me was my first bow-chicka-wow-wow (i.e. virgin heister). 

I was so super cool to have gotten so many autographs.  Gotta love that my mom even signed it!  There's even a warning at the top of the page from one friend that "if anyone writes on this page, you will die".  There's some strong words.....that no one paid any mind to.

Do you still have any of your yearbooks of yesteryear?  Were you as deranged about collecting classmate signatures as I was?

We've kept my children's yearbooks. Fun to look back on...laugh at the photos, tease about signatures..."Stay Cool," was a main theme in my daughter's. What exactly is that supposed to mean..haha.

I don't have ANY of my old yearbooks, sadly. I so wish I did, though.

I have all my yearbooks but I am not in most of them. I was a little averse to pictures in high school, so I would skip picture day and retake day. Now I really wish I hadn't...

I was a nut at getting all those signatures! I only bought my middle school yearbooks. My stepsister sat outside reading them one night, left them out there, and it poured down rain that night. Totally ruined them, so now they are just a distant memory. Glad you still have yours and can go back and reflect on those glory days :)

I still have all of my yearbooks and autograph books from school. My children love to look at the photos and read what the kids said back then. They get a big kick out of it!

I like checking back on my yearbooks and re-reading all those notes from old friends and classmates.
