I’ve never liked to do things on my own.
As a child, having to leave my mom and dad terrified me so much, I’d refuse to go to Sunday School unless my mom was the teacher.
When my sister was born, she was the best gift my little being could have ever dreamed of.
She became my best friend and my constant companion. Having a partner in crime let me be brave in trying new things. Being homeschooled, I hardly ever had to go anywhere or do anything that didn’t involve my little sister.
When I started community college, my best friend Serena became my constant companion. I was the brave one, the one that signed us up for theatre auditions and drug us to parties and instigated college visit road trips, but only because she was by my side.
When I met my now fiance, Topher, he became my constant companion.
Besides random, anxiety filled, singular experiences, I never had to do life alone until I moved to Boulder and started university.
