Anyways, there are other students besides Zack, Kelly, Slater, Lisa, Jessie, and that a-hole Screech that went to the Bayside High. And as far as we can tell, they had dreams! They wanted to do things! They would have wanted to go to college. But they were probably turned down because their extracurricular activities were shanghaied by six students.

The Unmissed Connection
I read a lot of missed connection articles on here. They are one of my favorite things that get posted. I love the way they are written, but I always think it’s so sad that someone felt that way and didn’t do anything about it.

So I decided to write my own type of connection post, one that didn’t have the missed ending.
