ME AT HALF MY AGE
Inspired by @nathanveshecco. Love this 'request' 👏
- •I'm somewhere between the ages of 12 & 13It's mostly 2003
- •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.
- •My little brother watches Monsters' Inc every dayIt's one of my favorite movies to this day & I quote it a lot.
- •I play a lot of The Sims with my best friendMostly at her house because it's bigger (both her parent are dentists)
- •I have a best friend & then a separate group of friends at schoolIt feels like my social life was very separated.
- •I am also bullied by the popular girls - mostly about the fact that I am very tall, very skinny & very studiousI 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.
- •I am obsessed with Busted& McFly as son as they show up.
- •I suffer a lot from separation anxietyEspecially on the the nights before I have to take the bus to my dad. There were a lot of sleepless anxiety-filled nights.
- •Because of this I cry myself to sleep on the floor of my gym teacher's room on a school tripI have no idea how I survived that trip - we were away for 4 nights.
- •I had a crush on a boy named SímonHe played football & transferred schools later that year.
- •I had my first ever slow dance (& last? I can't remember others) with him during that school tripIn my memory it was very dramatic - in reality I was a tall, gangly nerdy girl & he was just being nice 🤓
- •I meet my friend Rakel for the first time around this timeAnd 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 😍👯
- •I look like this
