7th graders are insane. I think that it is because while we start in the sixth grade, everything else (especially athletics and cheerleading) start in the 7th grade, and the whole social structure gets tossed on its head. The big fat kid everyone made of straps on a helmet and becomes an immovable force on the defensive line. The scrawny little kid becomes the running back no one can catch. The quiet frizzy haired girl can do a back flip and land in the splits. The whole grade level goes nuts while they try to figure out how to deal with all the upheaval in who is popular.
