Katie: 8th Grade Style

I honestly don’t know if I should be admitting half of what I do in this vlog.

I’m talking about 8th grade…middle school…aka one of the most traumatizing times in a person’s life.

I won’t ramble on: I’ll let the video speak for itself. But it does include the following: jorts, N*SYNC, and Irish Step Dancing. I’m embarrassed already.

So tell me: how awkward were YOU in 8th grade? Any stories to share? Please tell me I’m not alone!

  • I havent watched yet (Im at work) but I did Irish step dancing in 8th grade too! Actually 7th-10th grade – you dont hear of others that did it too often!

  • Lol! Are jorts jean shorts?? Because I wear them! Not the ugly ones from the 90’s, lol, but cute ones from AE. 🙂

    Gosh, I barely remember 8th grade but I might try to do this one, fun!

  • I think we were ALL some form of awkward in 8th grade.. I actually put pictures in my vlog for this week (don’t know why I did that.. it’s terrible) for everyone to laugh at. My fashion and huge glasses? So embarrassing now!

    I was also in our musical, but they cast me as one of the dancers.. Guys and Dolls, I think it was! Ohh, the memories 😉


  • I tried to comment earlier but it didn’t work for some reason..2nd attempt!

    I think we were all a bit awkward in 8th grade, it’s part of what makes looking back so funny! I showed some (terribly embarrassing pics) on my vlog this week.. http://forgetme-not.blogspot.com.

    I have to say that I actually loved Britney way back then.. I saw her in concert on her 2nd tour (I think) and despite the fact that the girl couldn’t/can’t sing worth crap, she does put on a good show. Ohh Britney. She sure showed all of us up, lol.

  • Can’t watch it yet because R is watching SVU in the next room. The perils of a small apartment! But rest assured, I will watch it. The 90s make me so nostalgic! This generation just doesn’t know what they missed…

  • You are really good at being on camera! And I had huge, round, ugly BLUE glasses before I got contacts. Simply awful.

  • OMG, I laughed so hard I was almost crying at your jorts depiction. I totally wore those (mid-thigh length) too. So, so terrible. 🙂 Awesome vlog!

  • Oh my goodness, I laughed so hard when you described your outfit! In my 6th grade picture I am wearing blue airwalk shoes with high white socks, green khaki shorts, a white v neck undershirt with a pink sweater vest!

    We could’ve been super stylish together!

  • Oh my, I wore the same white socks…pulled up mid-calf! Sometimes mine even had ruffles on them, but I think I was over that by 8th grade.

    Is it totally pathetic that I’m very jealous that you got to see the *NSYNC/Britney concert? I haven’t quite gotten over that obsession yet! 😉
