Middle school. The most embarrassing years of my life. I look back at my pictures and just wonder why in the world would I do that? Why did I look like that? How did someone let me do that? But to be honest, I wouldn't want it any other way because I wouldn't have something to look back on today. Just about every middle school girl can relate to this:

1. Getting "married"

I don't know about you but I took my "marriage" very seriously. We had a 25 cent ring and everything. We called each other "wifey's" to top it all off. Believe it or not, we even had a wedding video. It was pretty legit. Then I found out she was also married to another friend in our friend group. It was a sad breakup but we worked through it and she's my best friend to this day.


2. Duck lips

The legendary duck lips. The bigger the lips the better. I went through a phase where I don't think I ever took a picture with my teeth showing. Why did we think this was cool? I wish I knew.

3. Atrocious wardrobe

Sophie shorts ring a bell? I think I had one in at least every color. Oh and don't forget about my soccer ball ones that I just HAD to wear to soccer practice. What about tying your shirt to the side or tucking in the front of your t-shirt to your shorts? For some reason, this was a long-running style. I am not sure how.

4. Forward messages

Those messages were so annoying yet fun. If I didn't forward those I swear I thought something was actually going to happen to me.

5. Learning everything on the bus

From bad words to inappropriate anything. You learned what things were and where things came from. I learned more things on the bus than I ever did in school.

6. Festivals

They were the best thing to do on a summer weekend. You couldn't miss it. Although no on really rode the rides or played games. It was basically a giant get together for your side of town with a bunch of middle school drama.

7. Awkward mirror selfies

Don't lie, we've all taken them at some point.

8. Edited pictures

There were edited pictures with irrelevant words surrounding our faces. Or writing the words "BFF's" around it to make sure everyone knew that you guys were best friends. At some points, I would actually have people like my status for me to make them an edited picture. Consider yourself lucky if you didn't. Pic Monkey was my life.

9. Webcam pictures

What're you doing tonight? Oh, just taking pics on my webcam.

The Top 5 Games I'm Excited For In 2019

My hype for these games cannot be contained.

Looking ahead at the lineup of games to release in 2019, gamers have something to look forward to in all genres. With gaming conferences such as E3 still to come, that list can only keep on growing. I've limited that list down to five games which I am extremely hyped for, and I need them to come out right now.

1. "Borderlands 3" (I'M SUPER HYPED!!!)

Literally, all the games on the list don't even come close to this legend right here. I love the Borderlands franchise as a whole and enjoy not only the story but the whole loot and gritty aspect of the game. The characters are awesome, and it's an amazing game to play with your friends. I can't tell you how excited I am just through text. This game is not only my childhood, but it's close to my number one favorite game of all time.

2. "Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission"

"Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission" has a unique take on the Dragon Ball universe. Instead of an action-packed button mashing fighting game, you use cards to attack your opponents. The game has been released in Japan for a while now, but soon it will make its English debut. I'm all for collecting my favorite DBZ characters, so needless to say I'm more hyped than when Goku thought he killed Frieza on Namek. Only true fans understand.

3. "Mortal Kombat 11"

I have always been a big fan of the Mortal Kombat franchise. With the gruesome fatalities and the blood and the gore, what's not to love about it? Usually, when something is new, that means improvements, graphical upgrades, and more and more unique satisfying ways to dismember your opponents. Trust me, this game isn't for your mother. Unless she's like mine and loves fighting games. If that's your mom, then she'll enjoy this one.

4. "Persona 5" (Nintendo Switch)

To be honest, the only reason that I am excited for the "Persona 5" Nintendo Switch release is because of the main character, Joker, being in "Smash Bros. Ultimate." It's been on the PS4, but it was just recently leaked that it would be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Since then I have been watching tons of gameplay videos on it, and I gotta say, I'm hooked now.

5. "Hytale"

When looking at "Hytale," the first thing that comes to my mind is a buffed out, upgraded version of "Minecraft." You can do everything that you do in "Minecraft" and then some. The game is a sandbox game that can either be played with friends or solo. There are tons of things that you can do ranging from dungeons, fighting monsters, farming, and building. There's also a social hub where you can meet and interact with new people, so that's also a plus. Having a social life is always fun.

What games are you looking forward to?
