somethingI want to be good at something. Something that society deems worthy of acknowledgement. Being good at math or chemistry, or anything remotely academic isnít good enough.
I must sing, play sports, or act.
I donít want celebrity; I just want validation.
Validation that my life is worth something to someone. Someone other than myself.
Itís a shame I was born tone-deaf, clumsy, and with a fear of public speaking, or I couldíve been something Ė something impressive.
