In a lot of ways, elementary school isn’t so different from college. In my mind, I am still a kid running circles around potentially life-threatening 1990’s playground equipment until I pass out and come down from my Twinkie induced sugar-high. These journal entries show that Kenyon students were emotional little people in elementary school, very concerned about the future and everything that comes along with being a “teen” or grown-up.
Margaret Tucker ’15, Psychology Major & Anthropology Minor
Margaret wanted to make sure that she wouldn’t forget her childhood principles once she became a teen:
Dear Margaret,If u still have this when u r a teen and hate Harrison, Mom + Dad – remember this:U will always <3 them + they will always <3 u!
+ Don’t forget
Sarah Morgan Cohen-Smith (SMCS) ’14, Art Major
SMCS found the beauty in KFC that we may have been missing all along.
Dylan Kaye ’15 Psychology & Spanish Major
Dylan was very concerned about the future. Thankfully, Future Dylan (Present Dylan?) was kind enough to write a response to his nine-year-old self.
