i am a boy.
people seem to look at me funny. i am not sure why. i have been trying to work out what it might be. i don’t recall any strange looks from people in australia / new zealand. i felt normal in japan, who wouldn’t? but it started when i got to london. people looked at me as i walked on the street. i thought maybe i looked like someone famous? or maybe my face had been all over the media...
“As I lie here awake I am surrounded by unfamiliarity, yearning for something that I recognise, hoping for even a hint of normality, but knowing my desire will remain unfulfilled, leaving me to ponder the reasons for committing to such an endeavour, questioning the very same beliefs which convinced me not only of the value of being here, but of also merely being.” - author withheld.
