Middle School Slang (In America)
To me, oof is like saying darn, or to bad. Kids these days tend to say oof all the time. Like if somebody has the slightest inconvenience everybody’s like oof. Like today my shoe was untied and I was like “I need to tie my shoe” and my friend was like “oof.” So yeah, it’s just a word people are obsessed with saying. (P.S sorry in advance for the bad grammar I’m super tired)
Okay so I’m pretty sure “yeet” is like throw. I think it originated from an old vine (if u don’t know what that is then too bad) and now middle school students just say yeet normally. For example, “I’m gonna yeet my textbook across the room.” (Which I’m not crazy this actually happened in science today. I think I’m the only sane kid in my school left :)
Oh my godness
This is like omg or oh my goodness but it’s just like a mashup of god and goodness to get godness. So yeah that’s all.
This one is kind of annoying to me. So tweens/teens in my school will say wow but they will make a sort of Eee sound so it’s like weeow. I don’t know how to sleep that. Sorry I mean spell. (I’m supposed to be asleep btw) They will also say it kind of squeaky or whiny-ish. It’s really annoying but people do it so...
Spill the tea (sis)
This one is more commonly said, and it’s a newer thing I guess. Basically tea is like gossip, news, secrets, personal stories or like “the scoop.” So when people say spill the tea there like indicating for the person to like talk about their news or secret whatever. Then sometimes girls will say “spill the tea sis.”
That’s all for tonight. Adios amigos!
Um Throwback Thursday?
I found a “poem” I wrote when I was like 4 years old. One of my first writing things I’m not sure if it even is a poem, but its funny and...weird I guess. Here goes,
I like dogs.
I don’t like hotdogs.
A lot of people say Dawg.
Well not a lot, just this one boy.
I have a dog.
She has a special toy.
Do you have a dog?
Not a hog.
Not a log.
Your bright smile
Your perfect hair
I’ve liked you for a while
But you don’t even know I’m there
I wrote a book- now what?
A while back I wrote a post, asking the community on tips for getting my novel noticed/ published. Back in October-ish, I wasnt even finished with my book and was new to Prose. (And I accidentally deleted that post when I meant to edit, so too late now.)
Now after a few months I am back. I wrote a novel, ( did the free publish amzon thingy) and now am wondering “what’s next?”
I know there are a few published authors, and a lot of talented poets and authors on Prose. Being twelve, I’m not familiar with business, publishing, profesional agents, editors, and other businessy... stuff. Anyway I am here to ask for your help, to help give me a little push onto the path that I will be walking throughout my life.
I literally think I can tell the future. Here’s why. One time I dreamt about a banana sticker. I know that’s the randomest, weirdest thing. Then the next morning I went to school, and my friend came to me with a sheet of fruit stickers. (This was in elementary school) She then gave me the banana sticker! Almost as if my dream were telling me I was going to get a banana sticker. Another time I thought I was hearing a train sound in the back of my head, but there was no trains anywhere. Then a few hours later we went on a drive, and a train passed in front of us making the EXACT SAME sound I heard earlier, no joke. One time, I was getting dressed, and me and my sister have matching shirts, (since she loves to copy me) and I was thinking “I really hope my sister doesn’t where her matching shirt, that will be embarrassing” and right after I finished my silent thought, she came in wearing the exact shirt. Those are just a few I remember but I can “tell the future” surprisingly often.
My dad asked me what I was doing, I told him I’m looking at the stars. He says he misses being a kid. My dad doesn’t have time for looking at constellations anymore.
Started with Sad Sally’s Skarf
Sassy Sammie said Sally’s skarf was stupid, so Sally snipped her silly scarf with scissors. Sammie saw Sallys sadness, so Sammie sincerely said Sorry. Sally sensed Sammie’s snarled sarcasm and said, “Stop Sammie!” So Sammie stopped. Sammie felt sheepish, she sincerely said sorry, but Sally said to stop. Now Sammies sadness made Sally sheepish. Sally said sorry, Sammie smiled, accepting Sammie’s sincere save. Sammie and Sally smiled, as the schoolbell sounded. Sammie and Sally skipped to school.
They laugh at me because I’m different, I laugh at them because they’re all the same.
Introducing Me-uh. (Mia)
Well my name is Mia. I am in middle school, but don’t worry I’m not the stereotypical middle schooler people expect me go be. I am pretty quiet nd actually like school. I like to keep things organized and simple. When you first meet me, you will notice I am quiet, but soon I will warm up to you and be idk pretty crazy. I don’t play any sports, except I do ice skate. I also do acting, as a matter of fact I am doing a play through a local theater company right now. Im not sure if I am in introvert or an extrovert. Like I said, I love to preform, but I also am very quiet, and shy, so I’ll just say somewhere in the middle. I have two sisters, one older one younger. I also have an older brother in college. Then I have two dogs, Sloan and Babycakes. My parents recently divorced last June, but so far it’s been okay. My favorite food is steak (sorry cows) and my favorite color is like a blueish lavender, like a rare shade of periwinkle. My favorite season is autumn, and I love rain. I am starting to just ramble on, so I will finish now. If you have more questions you can ask in comments.
