Found a box of old school papers this weekend.
  1. Our teacher asked us to think of questions for Saddam Hussein. As always, I asked the hard-hitting questions other children were afraid to ask.
    A5af7b53 2692 46f7 82ea ad1e5352dbc3
    "Why do women have to cover their bodys? Do you get breakfast?"
  2. Brainstorm.
    Fc357756 4ab8 4cea 9c6e 6e567c725e2b
    Amazed by how little my brainstorms have changed in 20 years.
  3. I had just as clear an understanding of what a scientist does then as I do now.
    03450142 1ead 471a 8f10 09a2d23b3d09
    Basic math, robot assistant, time machine set for the future (1999).
  4. I guess they asked me what words I wanted to trace and this is what I said.
    E1f1d8cd a9a4 4367 834a aa0eda1c3132
    Sounds like something I'd be into.
  5. "These are parts of your arm."
    Add49f67 d620 44a8 ac01 078bc188ac20
    But not, really?
  6. "The things in my life."
    46b92060 c651 4010 bad9 1bab1cbe5e91
  7. This was just ten pages of blank paper stapled together.
    1670bf84 abf6 4390 ba29 8cabc072066a
    So fucking deep.
  8. We were assigned to make up a news story. Another choice piece of uncompromising child journalism.
    6c183896 c83e 4130 adc1 6a8beec8ebb1
    Pretty dark, actually.
  9. I stand by this advice.
    B8236263 5281 4169 956c 43defe244fbd
  10. Complete sentences? No problem.
    D1380c54 9f95 4e29 acc5 202e802e2783
    Stars of David by my bonus entries, for some reason?
  11. More great advice.
    6d81aac5 641f 40b8 9141 72288f618768
    Obviously sucking up in these responses.
  12. Dick Tracey fan fic.
    Bf7fcfd4 0fe8 489a a0b0 c729ce67a3f7
    "It was one of those days, you know the kind of day in Dick Tracey." If this is a joke, I give my young self props on this one.
  13. "The World."
    96c0b299 4be1 4ead 99a7 9ba8a559d390
    I think this piece was heavily influenced by the video for Michael Jackson's "Black or White," which had just come out. Morphing!
  14. "Facts" about shells.
    C52d2d84 35b7 4c26 ba68 e6d8a62bf9ea
    "Like we said, they get sucked up."
  15. "The Scientific Discovery." Unclear on the details of this discovery, but I know it involved ectoplasm.
    510dd060 3167 447e 8093 bf89b3170f2d
    "Little did I know that if I did not watch the cartoons it could lead to my fate." Convenient justification.
  16. "The Scientific Discovery Part 2."
    449b66ff 4937 449d 92fc 7f4e6d5d6f64
    "Barf powder."
  17. "My Dog."
    57bc6920 1a10 479a b780 c8ef1beebd1b
  18. Journal entry from a plane ride, I'm assuming.
    7e79a675 14e8 4372 9103 d82608f11b3f
    More barf.
  19. Potato Geraldo.
    Fcaf9a0f a131 4ed4 a0f8 63f8ca1b53b6
    No idea.
