I'm in a relationship now, and I'm really freakin' happy, and sometimes I wonder what things would be like if I was just more honest and upfront with my feelings before my boyfriend and I started dating.
Maybe I would've gotten a lot happier a lot faster.
Now I'm in college, and things are definitely different.
People usually complain about dating in the "digital" age, but that's not what bothers me.
A former janitor at a Saint John elementary school is on trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a boy more than 30 years ago.
John William Hunt, 68, who worked at Morna Heights Elementary School, is charged with one count of indictable sexual assault between June 1 and Sept. The alleged victim, whose identity is protected by a publication ban, reported the alleged abuse to Saint John police two years ago.
Now that I think about it, I had a really big crush on my boyfriend before I started dating him.
I would chase him at recess, pass love notes to him during class and blow him kisses from across the classroom.
In the letter, Wamsley shared that the school had issues with “distractions resulting from the students allowing themselves to get caught up in romantic issues and the drama that follows.” He then wrote these bullet points that would put children in Friday detention.
They included: - Going steady/dating another student - Discussion of others dating (boyfriend/girlfriend talk) - Spreading rumors or messages of "who likes who" - Showing public displays of affection (holding hands, passing love -notes, bringing gifts, etc.) - Any other romantic gesture that distracts from learning in the class Wamsley also wrote, "I know you share our belief that elementary school is no place for boyfriend-girlfriend relationships.
It matched the date of birth of one of the three John Hunts she found in the police database, she said. Morna Heights Elementary School, located on Chalmers Drive, currently has about 80 students between kindergarten and Grade 5, according to its website.
When the accused was brought in for questioning, he confirmed he was an employee of the school at that time, the officer said. Hunt previously elected to be tried by judge alone.
