While I’m being nostalgic - a life-changing moment.
14, almost 15 years old. One girl, my current age nonetheless (22), made all the difference in the world.
There really are some people in the world who are so disconnected from the life they could never even dream of, but still crave. Not knowing how to attain it, or even how to want it properly… it feels hopeless to grow up in an environment that allows that helplessness to foster. But that was my hometown and my childhood. I couldn’t settle for an average life but felt so trapped. One simple comment, so short but supportive, showed me at an early age that there are people out there doing it. Making a difference. Going after the things I barely knew how to want. And since then I allowed myself to want, attain, and grow.

Just found the description I used to use on forums when I was 13-14.
”Hey, my name is Lauren, not Rebecca. The whole ‘No, my name is not Rebecca’ concept is an inside joke. I’ve been told many times by friends that I look like a Rebecca. A lot of people say ‘How can you look like a name?’ You just can, and I like the name Rebecca. But back to the point, I’m Lauren. I don’t care if you call me Rebecca, or Becca, or Bec, they’re all hot names and if you do address me by that, you care. Because you have read this much. I am a musician. I can play violin, guitar, bass, and viola fluently. But the violin is my main instrument. Music completely controls my life. I dress a little on the dark side. That doesn’t mean I’m some emo kid. Far from it mate. I’m a smart kid. I have kept a steady A average my whole life. I was always the girl you wished you were in kindergarden, who finished first and got to color when you were solving 3 plus 6. I like to keep it real, that’s me.”
Lol… This was back when I wanted to be Australian and hated my name.
^This was also my icon for everything. I remember stealing it from a friend’s myspace layout!!
