I peeled my eyelids open to find a 6’6″ man towering over me with a look of concern in his one good eye. I felt the stiffness of the bench pressing against my back on the subway platform. This was not my usual stop. I slowly started to piece together how I got there.
Despite the countless houses, apartments, hostels and homestays I have lived in, I have never truly felt that I had a home.
July 24, 2014 I often wonder about how people perceive me, especially because of how I have been perceived in the past. I have been put into so many “boxes” over the years, and each one has frustrated me more than the next.
