I remember being really anxious about what people at school thought of me. I worried that my awkwardness or shyness was coming off as my thinking I was above everyone, but then I would worry that if I was more outspoken, [people would think] I was trying to dominate every outlet available to me….But now when I walk through the halls at school, I’m not thinking about if I look too confident or anything else. Now that just seems so silly. Hopefully the things that bother me now will seem silly a year from now. But then new things will come up, and it’s just an endless cycle, and we all die eventually.
