Memory age: 12

Middle school. Making the 45 minute drive home, late at night, from so many school functions– plays, talent shows, school dances. I sit in the backseat of my mom’s 2000 VW Bug, head pressed against the cool window glass, staring up at all the stars in the night sky. She puts Vertical Horizon on, and I contemplate my latest crush and change the words to suit my mood– I am everything he wants, I say all the right things, I mean nothing to him and I don’t know why… And I wonder, Why is it so hard to be 12? Why doesn’t anyone understand me? Why won’t the boys talk to me? I sigh aloud. I can’t wait to grow-up.
