From a Seventeen Year Old’s iPhone Notes

I am hiding under a window curtain, watching the 5 roll towards ocean beach and pretending that I am not a person and that my friends are friends without knowing me. 

 

Remember: 

Doctor’s appointment on Thursday. 

 

Talk about hunting for lizards in thesis!

 

I have a superpower. 

 

To do: 

Gov ch. 16.

Line edits.

 

AAAAAAAAAAAAA

 

I am seventeen years old in the backseat of a friend’s friend’s car on New Year’s Eve. I’ve been drinking champagne but I am not drunk and we just saw fireworks over the bay and the music is so so loud. Today is 2017 and anything could happen to me. 

 

Remember: 

You have nice eyes.

 

Remember: 

You have never needed anyone’s love.
