4. The Middle School Years

7th grade the absolute worst year of my life and I hate thinking about it. I was bullied all throughout and my grades dropped drastically. I was legit failing and I thought I was going to be held back. But the bullies made me so much stronger. I may have had little friends and little self-esteem, but now I know that, that's life. The bullies don't remember me or what they did, but I do. 

I'm really skinny, and we'll get to that more later, so I was called names. 

Anorexic.

Freak.

Twig.

Green Bean. (i was wearing an outfit one day that happened to consist of green and white)

Bean Sprout.

Bulimic.

And so many others. I was friends with a suicidal girl who would cut herself and she would always show me her scars. And, I began to hurt myself and have negative thoughts. 

The summer between 7th and 8th was the best. It was my last year at the camp and I wanted to make it special. And special it was. I met a guy and we had a thing. We never kissed because I wasn't ready (I was 13 and awkward and just finished the worst year of my life). I went home and added him on facebook just to see that he had a girlfriend of a month while we were together. I was heartbroken. I thought I was in love, but now that I know what it's like to be in love, I know that that wasn't it. 

8th grade was really when I started to play around more with my music passion as well as my writing. I began to take guitar lessons and practiced more on my writing. I also began to really explore my passions, going to a lot of concerts and trying new things. I was in the play, chorus, Gold & Blues (our 8th grade's select choir), played field hockey and played lacrosse. I developed a passion for those sports and even though I don't play them at the high school level, I will probably play for a club team in  College. As for theatre and music, I don't know where I'd be without them.

I also blacked out for the second time during lacrosse in eighth grade, keeping me out of the rest of the season. The first time I blacked out was at a Paramore concert the summer between 7th and 8th grade.
