In my first few hours of being 13, I have received so many wishes from people. A few of my best friends forgot, but some remembered and sent me a slideshow.
My mom's boss (who I never met) has also wished me. Now I realize how many people are out there who might know me through something. (At one point yesterday I realized I had met an actor.
I'm still shook.) And so I'm also realizing a lot of other things about the world, and the future seems a little bit less foggy with a big sign of more responsibility.
And so, what does it feel like?
Like I'm still the potato I was yesterday.
I'm just older.
