Damn,how little I remember from then and it doesn’t even feel like it was that far away. I would be 13, so I would be in year nine of high school, being a little misfit, who listened to rock music and stuff from the 70s. I would be the Girl who had breasts since she was 9 so was the girl that all the boys wanted to feel up,regardless of my personality and the fact I was the school fatty. I would be studying german and working to save the money for the trip there with school next july.
I was just beginning to stumble int poetry writing, believing they would be lyrics for my “awesome band” that was gonna make me a rockstar. I was Reading with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.
I was Customizing my clothes and shoes,partly because of self confidence or lack thereof, partly because it was difficult to get clothes to fit a short dumpy with 36 D breasted woman.child.
I was different.
11 years is a long time.
