    Kindergarden

    My early childhood was filled with issues that I had to handle. Some were emotional and some were health issues. My biological father was a very unstable man and there was a lot of fear in my early years. The fighting, violence and stalking was not easy to handle. I remember...

    5th Grade

    I went from the easiest private school in the county to the hardest, naturally it was like skipping a year or two. I got a 59% the first time and a 58% the second time(they can't hold me back more than once for the same grade, so I got bumped up to 6th). Just goes to show...
