This year was the 'exile from Eden.' I ended 6th grade at Centering School, and began a VERY traumatic transition to 7th grade at public middle school. I have always believed this was the single most traumatic experience of my entire childhood – more than my parents' divorce. My mother chose this year to remarry, too. I was very angry and resentful about this. 7th grade sucked.
[This entry is part of a timeline I am making using this blog. I am writing a single entry for each year of my life, which when viewed together in order will provide a sort of timeline. This entry wasn't written in 1977 – it was written in the future.]
