The You I've Never Known “Two whole summers, one complete grade, well, that’s a record, and I’m praying I can finish my junior year here too” This quote from The You I’ve Never Known was said by ariel talking about living in one place for awhile.

On the other hand, my three year old self was quietly looking out the window and effortlessly perfecting my job of being a daddy’s little girl. In the driver’s seat, sat my father, a tall, patient, and affable individual. The three of us were in progress of completing our daily routine of driving to preschool.
When i started school i was acting up and never wanted to do any work or homework and my grandmother had to come to the school everyday. I never really cared about reading and writing because i wasn't really good at it, so i never really worked on reading and writing.
