I’d forgotten to bring a magazine to read and someone else had already nabbed the Starbucks newspapers.
I sat down with my steaming soy latte and wondered how I was going to distract myself for the next twenty minutes or so.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent most of your life trying desperately hard to fit in: to be like the other girls, not stand out and just be part of the ‘in’ crowd.
