  • Being the tallest girl I knew
  • My relationship with my best friend in middle school
  • The depressive episode I experienced from ages 13-14
  • The moments during that time when I was physically incapable of getting up from the floor because my entire existence hurt too much
  • Stepping off the curb on the way to school between the ages of 13-14.
