As someone who turned her back on cool in primary school, and spent high school as the sometime loner, brainy weird writer poet, who was into music and drama (as subjects!) – totally with you on this.

Great piece.

sneaking poetry into the corners of the day, and telling stories to myself in grasp of sanity.
