These “notes” are ideas for essays/longer posts. If you see one that you think would make a good essay/post or that you just want to see what I would do with it, please let me know in the comments or in an e-mail! I would love to take on a challenge like that.
A friend of mine reminded me this week of how attached we can be/are to the people we were in high school. So much drama. So much trauma. It’s been 10 years and I still have to remind myself that I’ve changed. I’ve grown. I survived. Things are better now. And yet it cannot be denied that 18-year-old Lizzie has a great deal to do with the person I am today. And looking back and seeing how my life has developed since then has a lot to do with the sense of accomplishment and achievement that I get from my life these days. So I guess I should be grateful for that strange attachment to the me of a decade ago.
