I have always wanted an old school desk. Clearly I don’t have bad school memories! I cannot really say why but it’s something that I wanted and I’m kinda glad to give that tiny piece of my school history to the boys.
We bought one in Parys today and Jason is in love with the desk. Mmm…like mother like son?
Looking at this desk brings back some memories. Remember how we carved out our names or the guy you loved in that desk? Trying to hide it from the teacher but brag to your friends.
Not that I ever did this!
I look at this and I wonder. Does Rhiana still know Johan? How old were they when they were in love? Was this carved into the desk at the beginning of the school year? Did they break up soon after and thus forced the guy/girl to stare at that all year long?
So many kids have sat at that exact desk. Counting down the hours to the end of the school day. Worrying over exams. Falling in and out of love. Where are all those kids today?
Is really weird how looking at that desk makes school feel like so many ages ago but also like it was just yesterday.
