The Perks of Being a "Late Bloomer" | Wit & Delight
Truth be told, I was embarrassed. I find it funny when I meet people now, especially living here in Europe, and hear their almost-romanticized notions of what being an American high schooler is like. They often assume that I was homecoming queen or at least a cheerleader which is ridiculous given how uncoordinated I am. While one might assume that going to university would have immediately unleashed my inner wild child, my first few years of college were admittedly tame. Let me count the ways. This meant going against the grain, so to speak, in terms of what so many of my friends from high school and university ended up doing. I also realized that being single gave me the unique opportunity to discover who I was and develop my personality accordingly, without a boyfriend influencing those parts of me.
