    It was a time for being "random" and fearing year 11s.

    1. You thought year 11s were so grown up and couldn't wait until prom.

    2. You took back to back photos with your bezzie.

    3. And posed like this for your Bebo profile photo.

    4. Or this.

    5. You got a friend to ask your crush out for you.

    6. Your backpack was as big as you.

    7. You bought something from J.D specifically so you could use the carrier bag as your P.E bag.

    8. Or you'd use a Jane Norman bag.

    9. You wore your tie super short and fat.

    10. Only to have someone pull it down so it knotted.

    11. You'd run between classes.

    12. Every morning you'd apply an obscene amount of lipgloss.

    18. You spent your nights doing ridiculously cringe things on MSN.

    19. Like popping up to your crush and typing a message and saying, omg wrong person, but it wasn't and you just wanted to get their attention.

    20. Or logging on and off MSN loads to get their attention.

    21. And choosing what emoticon to put in your name.

    22. You thought you were so clever trying to trick SmarterChild.

    23. You'd bulk buy sweets and sell them to your friends.
