I grew up in a small town. I was different, obviously, but there are many reasons. I fell asleep in math classes and woke up to explain what the teacher was lecturing about for the previous 45 minutes. I was going to be smart.
I loved to read books. From the time I could handle a story, I loved to read. I was going to be smart.
I loved science. I loved drama. I loved school. I loved math. I had so many expectations for myself, but I had more for those around me.
I don’t have high expectations of you. Not like I do for me. I do, however, have limits and a baseline. I can live without you.
