I am young, and I am cool, and I want to wear cool clothes!
I did theater summer camps when I was a kid, and I enjoyed them, but they never felt quite right. But then there would always be a tiny improv workshop towards the end of camp, and I would always feel like I liked it so much better.
I don’t take well to rules.
I have no time for being embarrassed.
