Diary of a Middle School Kid
Have we met?
You might have seen Ben, a 7th grader at Hadley Junior High, at the library, or you might have missed him, but keep your eyes on the chalkboard in The Middle, because he loves to write "Ben was here" whenever he visits.
He likes to hang out at home playing
Overwatch, or watching videos on YouTube. Ben's favorite YouTube web series is
Good Mythical Morning, especially the "Will It" segment, where they combine different ingredients to often make disgusting combinations.
Ben prefers more traditional food; macaroni and cheese easily being his favorite. If he had to pick the best mac and cheese, it would have to be from Fire + Wine. He has visited this restaurant for more than one birthday. His last birthday, Ben tried something different and went to an escape room with some friends. He wasn't too happy about it because they lost due to a faulty lock. The staff couldn't even open it!
Ben had a few adventures last summer, including seeing a mom and baby moose in Montana. He was only 5 or 10 feet away! Even with his other experiences, Ben almost finished level three in our summer reading program last year, and hopes to do better this year. He loves to read fantasy because it doesn't follow the normal rules of life.
As for super powers, Ben thinks too many people automatically pick flying as their power of choice, and he thinks it's overrated. He would love to have the super power of telekinesis to change the clocks at school. So, if class suddenly gets shorter, it might be because of Ben!
