"I’m really spontaneous, like jumping into fountains—that sort of thing."

Excited for school to start?
I’m definitely a little nervous.

Why’s that?
I was home-schooled before, so this is my first time really going. I don’t want the whole mean-girls situation.

What if you end up being the mean girl?
I hope not. Though I think I scare people in some situations.

You don’t look scary to me.
Well, I’m really opinionated, and I don’t think people like that in a 16-year-old girl. But I’ve researched what I’m talking about.

And what are you talking about?
I’m really pro-gay and pro-freedom. And I’m really spontaneous, like jumping into fountains—that sort of thing.
