Two weeks ago I started junior high school at Talkington SYWL. So far, it’s been pretty much your typical middle school experience. Kind of. Yes, there are passing periods, lockers, homework, and friends. However, there are absolutely no boys, which has been weird and fun all at once, and we wear uniforms. In spite of those small trifles, I’ve loved how grown up I’ve felt. I’ve never felt more free to be myself. But mostly, I have simply been so grateful to be at a school that will challenge me to do better and gives me many undeserved priveleges. So yes, these things are small pleasures, but we rejoice. God’s pleasures are so good.
