    I lived in this house for 18 years. Throughout that time I grew up and learned. My first day of school was here, first birthday, first Christmas. Now it lasts, the last time me and my family will sit around and eat at that 60 year old table, where my uncle stuck his gum under...

    The Primary Years.

    I remember when I was younger. I wanted to be a teenager so badly. now that I grew up, I want to go back. Back to when no one was criticized for what they're wearing. Back to when smoking was gross. Back to when being popular was when you had the new...

    concrete, looking back at my memories I thought it was white, it wasn't. It wasn't until the age of 3 or so that I realize there was a second story to the home. And now when I returned this summer it is apparently a barbershop, I went to get a haircut but no one was there, and...
