I can still remember the day it all started. It was probably only the second week of 1st grade. In 1st grade we were merged with kids from the other kindergarten classes, the kids who don’t know you. I even remember the incident where the new kids even got friends from my kindergarten class to shun me and not help me with a group project. It was the first time that I would find myself doing a group project by myself. The first of many, many years of being alone.
