MY FIRST CRUSH

  1. I was in third grade
    I'm pretty sure I knew him the few grades before that, but this is when I remember realizing I had a crush on him.
  2. He was so smart
    It was intimidating. Which says a lot because I was arrogant and thought I was smarter than everyone.
  3. HE WORE A LAKERS UNIFORM TO SCHOOL EVERY SINGLE DAY OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
    Not like a t-shirt, or a sweater, or just a jersey. It was a full uniform, every day. He had different ones, but always a full uniform.
  4. I was pretty sure he liked Jaqueline Williams
    She was way cooler than I was (she had a trampoline) and she was one of those rare humans that gets to be attractive at 8 years old? I freaking looked like this:
  5. But then we were in A Christmas Carol together
    And everyone told me that he was blushing only when he did his lines with me 💁🏼
  6. On the last day of fifth grade (when we all went to middle school) he received an award for perfect attendance for 6 YEARS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
    He literally did not miss a single day of elementary school. Which means he never missed a single day in that freaking uniform!
  7. In middle school he remade himself and stopped wearing the Lakers uniform
  8. Also, middle school was way bigger so I saw him less
  9. Nothing ever happened, but it is so fun to be a dramatic pre-teen with a really dramatic crush on an adorable weirdo.
