Getting better all the time.
Mixed feelings about college applications, yesterday’s parties, and the whole entire internet.
Report-card worries, a panic attack, and post-surgery recovery.
Soaking in the world, and becoming ourselves all over again.
Lots of change, and it’s slightly disconcerting.
Bodies in pain.
Making it work.
Tons of self-doubt, and affirmations, too.
Heartache, injury, thoughts on eating disorders…and glimmers of hope.
Life is kind of an obstacle course right now.
