By the time I was 10, we pretty much had our own lives. For some reason, I had a sizable trust fund set up for me, your guess is as good as mine as to where it came from. Maybe an absent father? Not really important why I have it, just that I do. A faceless accountant pays all our bills and keeps more than enough money on our bank cards to take care of any spending we may have done. Mom never went crazy with the spending, so I never did either. I’m not sure the size of the fund or if it will ever run dry, so I keep things modest.

While I was 11 and 12, Mom would take off for various vacations and parties more and more. I never really knew where she was going; she never really bothered to tell me. The last time I saw her was when I was 13. I didn’t initially notice she was gone. I think I realized it had been a long time since I had seen her on my 15th birthday. I always assumed she would stop back by at some point, and most assuredly leave again, but it hasn’t happened yet. Writing this down, I’m realizing that she probably won’t, it has been 5 years. I do hope she’s not dead. I hope that doesn’t sound too insensitive, but it’s hard to muster up feelings about someone who just was there for part of your life.

I can describe myself to you, but I’m not sure I need to. I’m completely average. Brown hair, brown eyes, medium height and build. Nothing is really noticeable.

I’m currently a senior in high school. I’m a pretty average student, mostly B’s and C’s with the occasional A. I’ve pretty much abandoned any extracurricular activities. I’m pretty average build and have never been any good at sports, but to be fair I haven’t really tried to be. I like music, but I’m not really musically inclined so I never did band, orchestra, or choir. I did try out for a school play once. I got the part of understudy to Soldier #3. Understudy for a nonspeaking part. That’s alright; they ended up cutting the part out of our version of the play anyways. I was going to help behind the scenes, pulling curtains and such, but they told me they had all the help they needed.
