When I was in high school, I wasn't much of a planner. Come Friday, it was all about hooking up with friends and finding out what was the spot to hang-out Friday night.
Friday nights were spontaneous. Maybe we'd accidentally run into someone or a friend of a friend, who had heard about a party, and then it was like, "Cool, let's go." Other times, we'd just hang-out with a couple of friends outside in the cool night, doing nothing but goofing off. And sometimes, we'd go to the latest football game only to gather in the parking lot instead of watching football.
High school events were a lot like an adventure. You never knew what your night was going to be like until you got there.
And now as an adult everyday is a plan because I have a family, and things have to get done. I grew up and did a total 180 from my teen life! haha! Since I write teen fiction, I get to revisit the goofing off and the Friday night adventures. In a way it is just as fun as it was then, since I don't have to really deal with all the high school drama, but write about it all happening to someone else. :) :)
So tell me...what was one of your Friday night hang-outs?
