Dropping my backpack onto the sizzling seat, I lowered myself to the floor of the bus, part for shade from the early June sun, part to avoid having to say my goodbyes. Reaching into my pocket, I found my phone and a tangled pair of earbuds with wires frayed from daily use. As the school bus rolled out from the parking lot for the last time, I placed the headphones in my ears and tapped play. Closing my eyes as the bus hopped over a pothole, I was blind and deaf to the world around me. The first night, I spent an hour on Amazon searching for curtains.

In no time at all, I had consumed a tall cylinder of salt and vinegar Pringles and an Almond Joy candy bar. My mouth burned from the vinegar and salt while my body felt sick from all the sugar. I hated myself for it and felt the lump in my throat, wishing I had not indulged again. I arrived at the office building early and sat in the parking lot, but soon I found sitting there was making my nerves cringe, so clutching my document called “The Forgotten Girl”, I locked my car and hurried inside to the large professional looking lobby, fearing the whole time I was being watched from windows above for no reason other than to see how fat I was.
