i’ve been thinking about today, about our lives. there’s nothing certain about what we do. there’s nothing certain for people like us. and there’s a conversation i’ve been meaning to have with you for a while now, but i’ve never found the right time to have it. timing is everything. i wanted to talk now, annie.
“I’m not gonna lie. It’s going to hurt a little bit. Sometimes I wake up and I’m like, why can’t I be normal? Why can’t I just…you know? But I can’t, so I don’t. I look at birthdays as celebrating another year of your life. You’ve made it another year, an entire year. Some people don’t make it to 21.”
