STUFF I THOUGHT WAS COOL IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Mostly not cool now
  1. Rolling backpacks
    Scoliosis was a real threat in fourth grade
  2. Transition Lenses
    I also really wanted glasses in general. Damn my 20/20 vision
  3. Running through the school hallways with my backpack on
    So efficient, so suave, no chill
  4. Kids who got a key to their house
    With great power comes great responsibility.
  5. Snakes
    I thought everyone went outside to catch snakes after school?
  6. Rats
    I've had five pet rats. It took me until high school to realize that this wasn't a great way to start conversations.
