crushes - 6th grade
well, once christa told me about her idea i knew i wouldn't be able to leave it alone for long. and so here we go.
will it be a catalog of many love interests, both successful and unsuccessful? will it be a catalog of only unrequited crushes? tempting, but depressing. i don't know. we'll see.
the first crush i really recall was john greene in the sixth grade. sixth grade was hell; i'm astounded my spirit wasn't so crushed that i was actually able to have a crush.
i confided it in a girl i thought completely trustworthy. she told other girls and soon the whole class knew. i was mortified.
that was that.
oddly, to this day i cannot resist telling at least one person about almost all of my crushes. i have never been able to keep that information to myself. apparently this early negative conditioning had no effect.
