Yearbook time!

I don't know about you, but I devour my school's yearbook. Everyone seems to. You see people hunched over them, writing messages and trying to spot themselves in big team shots. In my track team photo, my head is as big as a pencil eraser.

So I'm wondering, what are your rules about yearbooks? Do you ask everyone to sign yours or just friends? Can teachers sign or only students? Do you ask boys to sign or just girlfriends? What's the best thing anyone ever wrote in your yearbook? Do tell!

What about yearbook abbreviations and sayings, like SWAK (sealed with a kiss) or 2Cool-2B-4gotten? I always feel a little sad at yearbook time because everything is changing. School is ending and you won't necessarily see all the same people next year...
But then again, summer is starting. In fact, today someone wrote "HAGS!" in my yearbook. That stands for Have A Great Summer!

Uhmm..I have no idea because our yearbooks haven't been made yet! They're suppose to be done by this week..? They've been procrastinating it ever since.

Buttta i think the most popular thing in yearbooks would be H.A.G.S. or something like "best wishes in h.s.//summer" and the like.

I'm the clown that came to town to sign your yearbook up-side down.

Then they sign their name.

I just write little notes like "C U NXT YR!" or "I know we weren't best friends, but we were still GREAT friends!!!" You get to choose who signs them. I didn't have a yearbook, but our teacher gave out "Autograph Books" for us, so I still got something like a yearbook!

Yearbooks are mainly just for people who want to tell others something before the summer, and to remember people. Who knows? You may never see the people again.

Ahh, yearbooks. One of my favorite parts about school ending!
I think H.A.G.S is overused now. WRITE SOMETHING ELSE!
Anyways, yearbooks are fun, but I hate when people write on their picture or when you let someone sign it but then some other kid [you may or may not like] gets it and signs it, without asking you.
I havn't gotten my yearbook yet. I have 7 more days till school is out, then SUMMER!

OMG like everyone at my school puts HAGS! And it's funny and kinda sad because everyone in The Academy (its like this program at our school where you have to be interviewed to get in and you have to stay an hour later everyday and you have to go to summer school. but it is really helpful and its not for unsmart kids) has known each other for 1 to 3 years and we are all going to different high schools! So everyone asks "what high school are you going to?" and then they put like "blah HS is better" or "see ya at blah HS!" or "i will miss you! Go blahs!"

I love yearbooks! They are sad but so filled with memories. I love reading messages from teachers saying stuff like, "I enjoyed having you in my class."

As I have been in a LOT of bad yearbook pictures I say that it is a good idea to go to the bathroom before you get your picture taken or else you might have a funny smile on your face. Also try not to cough or sneeze bcuz the person taking ur pic wont take two! Try not to wear big, bright colors and wear your biggest, prettiest smile!
