Feeling hopeful about the end.
Learning to be kinder to ourselves.
“Prom who? I don’t know her.”
Senior prom and not-so-lazy summer breaks.
Judging others is really not cool.
Accepting the grades we cannot change.
In emotional limbo.
Finding ways to keep trying.
“I feel like each of my limbs is bound to a different horse.”
Mom appreciation, and happy birthday to Fatma!
