Oh my god Julia you are describing so much of my experience. ( maybe without the drunk dad, I don’t know). I call it my chameleon powers. I could be whoever anyone expected me to be but I had no idea who I was. I still don’t.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
