that was the day i took the pre-algebra exemption test determining what level of math class should be in for seventh grade. i was worried and stressed; scared out of my mind to be at a big school like the junior high when i was still only a little sixth grader. i was the last one in the room finishing the test when i looked up and saw this kid. he was the other last one in the room too.
ever since that moment we've been through it all together.
today i wrote a journal entry for 11th grade.

today was the day i took the AP calculus exam, the test i've been working towards since that day in seventh grade when i went straight into regular algebra. i drove to the high school and walked in the same familiar doors. i found my seat in the cafeteria and was getting situated with my calculator and pencils when i looked up and saw this guy. the same kid. he took a seat.
and we dominated that test, side by side, 5 years later.
we made that journey, that math journey, together.
from start to finish.
i'd call that a miracle.
i've been blessed with full-lasting friendships my whole life.
