today my best friend, brittanee, and i visited our old school. about three years after we left the middle school, it was turned into an elementary school. about a year later, the elementary school left and now the building just sits there. upon our arrival there was a police car sitting in the parking lot. we were thinking that we couldn’t be there, but the police informed us that she didn’t mind us walking around. in addition, she also stated that there tearing the school down. immediately brittanee and i were shocked and got sad. i know it may seem corny and weird, but allen jay middle school meant/means a lot to me. even though i was in middle school those experiences that i experienced there changed me and made me the person i am today in a way. it just saddens me that it seems like all the memories will be wiped away after they tear it down. although it saddens me, it was great to visit the school today. it felt like i was reliving the memories with my best friend. i’m just greatful to have been able to attend the school. even when it is no longer there, i will always cherish those memories and the things that changed my life.
