ME AT HALF MY AGE

Inspired by @nathanveshecco. Love this 'request' πŸ‘
  1. β€’
    I'm somewhere between the ages of 12 & 13
    It's mostly 2003
  2. β€’
    I've recently made one of the biggest & probably hardest decision of my life so far.
    Moving from my dad to my mom - I was afraid my dad would think I didn't love him anymore.
  3. β€’
    My little brother watches Monsters' Inc every day
    It's one of my favorite movies to this day & I quote it a lot.
  4. β€’
    I play a lot of The Sims with my best friend
    Mostly at her house because it's bigger (both her parent are dentists)
  5. β€’
    I have a best friend & then a separate group of friends at school
    It feels like my social life was very separated.
  6. β€’
    I am also bullied by the popular girls - mostly about the fact that I am very tall, very skinny & very studious
    I remember thinking that those were all 'good things' & not understanding why they bullied me. It still hurt a lot. Years later my mom came home from work (she works at a rehab) & told me that my bully had just checked in. I guess hurting people hurt people.
  7. β€’
    I am obsessed with Busted
    & McFly as son as they show up.
  8. β€’
    I suffer a lot from separation anxiety
    Especially on the the nights before I have to take the bus to my dad. There were a lot of sleepless anxiety-filled nights.
  9. β€’
    Because of this I cry myself to sleep on the floor of my gym teacher's room on a school trip
    I have no idea how I survived that trip - we were away for 4 nights.
  10. β€’
    I had a crush on a boy named SΓ­mon
    He played football & transferred schools later that year.
  11. β€’
    I had my first ever slow dance (& last? I can't remember others) with him during that school trip
    In my memory it was very dramatic - in reality I was a tall, gangly nerdy girl & he was just being nice πŸ€“
  12. β€’
    I meet my friend Rakel for the first time around this time
    And after half my life of being kind of her friend & always in the same circles & really wanting to be her friend we are now super close πŸ˜πŸ‘―
  13. β€’
    I look like this
