Middle school years in the 80s

My mom went to Park View middle school in 1985-1987. During these years Madonna and Michael Jackson were the 80s hits. Movies that were popular at the time were Back To The Future, The Goonies, and The Color Purple. Jelly shoes, neon clothing, and Jordache jeans were some of the highlights of 80s fashion. My mom's favorite activities in school were cheerleading, chorus, and being a part of the dance company at Park View. Her hobbies outside of school were rollerskating and voice lessons. Her current job interests and activities are nursing and opening up her own retail store. The best part of middle school for my mom was chorus. The worst was that she found some children to be mean. My mom describes herself shy as her middle school self. I asked my mom about the school lunches she said they were okay, but back then she could sit with who she wanted to. Her experience in middle school was great, but it had it's down sides. My mom's advise is that middle school is tough, there are a lot of distractions and pressures, that being said the most important thing to remember is your education and treating people with love and kindness.
