Gabe is my new crush this month; sorry, Tom!
Reading Pinkalicious made me feel very seditious in third grade.
Our mindset changes from thoughts about candy to
Worrying about when our science project is due.
Unexpected changes lead us to gain a sense of maturity
Properties are protected by the security.
Global warming exists like a dinosaur's lesson.
Learning about our solar system is more important than "dressing up"
Owning a phone became a sign of popularity after elementary
Writing stories isn't for fun
Unless you love doing your homework.
Policemen are seen as possibly deadly
Guys like Mr. Fenley may seem more friendly

Exposed to the reality of life behind the curtains.
You are growing up; glowing up
Open up your mind to everything
Underneath all that skin, everyone is still a child at heart.
