"IT'S JUST A PHASE"
Guess what Aunt Sindi? You were wrong!
- 1.VegetarianismStarted at age 7, only because my mom wouldn't let it happen for 6 year old me. I was the only herbivore within a twenty mile radius of the Southside of Chicago. No one in my immediate family had even a passing interest in giving up meat, and absolutely everyone assured my mom I'd grow out of it. Here we are, 18 years later...
- 2.My baby blanketNeedless to say, I write this list with it wrapped around my neck like a cape. No one thought we'd make it this far baby, but you can't stop true love!
- 3.Obsessing over my hairI used to miss gymnastics because I would spend upwards of an hour combing through my hair until I captured a bump-free ponytail, and if I did not, I would refuse to go to practice. I am MUCH more lax now, but certainly not in the blissful, toss my hair up way they all swore I'd grow to find.
- 4.Collecting worms to live inside my dirt-filled clear backpack.Okay. That was just a phase.
