What does being 17 years old mean?
Soaking in the world, and becoming ourselves all over again.
FIN: Summer is well and truly over.
Lots of change, and it’s slightly disconcerting.
Epiphanies, illness, and impending exams.
Tons of self-doubt, and affirmations, too.
Heartache, injury, thoughts on eating disorders…and glimmers of hope.
Exam pressure, relationship pressure, so much pressure.
The past keeps coming back around.
Goals, and not just of the soccer variety.
