When Seventh Grade Feels Like a Lifetime Ago

Isn’t it fascinating how time blurs the edges of our memories? The further we journey into adulthood, the more our youth takes on the quality of a dream: radiant, surreal, punctuated with moments of intense joy, awkwardness, and a naive understanding of the world.
