one year; one sentence

September 29, 2011

I saw a while back on the Daily Post this blog topic: For each year you have been alive, write a single sentence about the most important thing that happened to you that year. I thought that might be kind of fun to do. This really makes you think!!

1990: I experienced my first crush on the Zach Morris from Saved By The Bell.

1991: I started reading Ann M. Martin’s The Baby-Sitters Club books. I had all of them. I wish wish wish I would have saved those books!

1992: I watched Shannon Miller win silver in the 1992 Summer Olympics and forever sealed my love of watching gymnastics.

1993: I started at Westview Middle School and had lockers for the first time.

1994: I had encephalitis and meningitis at the same time.

1995: I had my Bat Miztvah and my Torah portion was the Ten Commandments.

1997: I placed third in the 4×400 relay at the AAU Junior Olympics.
