the random confessions of a teenager
I'm gonna cry
I was just talking to Tammi and she's just the most amazing
person alive. First thing she says to me:
T: hey sweetie
T: DId i ever tell you i look up 2 you?
Me: uhhh no, y?
T: My aunt was talking 2 me and she was like telling me
about herlife and how life its self is soo o presious and
like im thynking alot about that and carrie, i really look
up 2 you.. idk your just like sum1 hoo i would really like
2 be like
Me: that's so sweet!
Me: i admire u too, tho
T: i really do wish i could be more like you
Me: i dunno why you'd look up to me tho
T: Becuz your just like down 2 earth, and don't care wut
people think of you.. and if you do, u don't let it get 2
you... or u don't show it
And I dunno, I've been feeling really down and depress-y
lately, and she kinda made me realize that even if I don't
think anyone's watching me, there's always someone there --
like her (she's younger than I am) -- watching, and looking
up to me. Our conversation kinda went on and on with her
detailing how much she really admires and looks up to me
and how sad she is that I'm not coming back to camp this
year and how much she's gonna miss actually seeing me
there. And she just made me so happy, that someone would
actually want to be like me, especially when I'm, well, me.
