Rent day is too much, too fast, and too loud.
I am reflecting here on the worst public embarrassment of my career.
Before I got into writing, I used to spend my lunch times at school locked in a stall in the girl’s bathroom.
I thought happiness was having a close group of friends you went bar hopping with every Friday and took an impromptu road trip with on Saturday.
The few times that I had attended parties like that (always motivated by the need to prove something), I got dizzy, bored, tired, and irritated.
Introverts are careful listeners, observers, and deep thinkers who have the power to make an impact in the classroom and the world.
I’m a highly sensitive person, and I felt like I needed to be perfect and never disappoint anyone.
I didn’t even know how to be around people anymore.
I’ve had trouble fitting in since I started school.
I had been wandering off for as long as I could remember.
