Eleven year old Square Piece, Part 3.

Conceited, arrogant, self-absorbed…

Yes, these all defined me well in sixth grade.

My very first entry into my Language & Spelling Journal began with the details of a poster that we once owned.  I’m pretty sure it looked like this:

As I read through this post, I thought, Oh, yeah!  I remember that!  And feelings of nostalgia swept over me… until I realized where I went with the description.  (Again, I’m restraining myself from making personal edits to this entry.)

Mrs. Stocking,

I am telling you about my favorite poster.  It is very big.  It’s all words.  It has no pictures.  It starts off by saying, “Jesus Christ, his name is…”  And it goes off saying things like, I am, King of Kings, Wonderful Counseler, Alfa and Omega… and lots more.  It makes me feel good to know


that I am like God because people have alot of names for me too.  People call me Elie May, or Suzy Q. and lots others.  Well, you said time to close so… Bye Bye!

Love in Christ,

Suzy Testa

P.S. – Ma Q., Louise, Suzanna, Snoozy, and Stink Pot.  Those are nicknames too.


Um, excuse me, but WWHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAT?!  Can we say, “Ego issues”?!

Seriously, when I read through this the first time and I got to, “It makes me feel good to know…” I thought for sure that the next line would have something to do with God being big or whole or complete or powerful or awesome in character.  But no.  Nope.  Apparently it makes me feel good to know that “I am like God.”

Good grief.

Thank the Lord He’s been patient with me.

    Too funny! It’s good to know God doesn’t leave us the way we are, huh? I’ve read through stuff I wrote in elementary school and was amazed at my narrow-sighted selfishness. I guess it comes with the territory and the age.

    aahahahaahaha I love it! don’t feel alone, I think I was probably just as self-absorbed. I’m glad there’s no written evidence to bring back to prove it LOL

    oh, and on the nostalgia, I had that poster hanging in my bedroom for YEARS. brings back lots of good feelings to see it again <3
