You're always the first one in and last one out of the water. Sometimes you don't wear a bra to work, but keep your blazer on all day just in case someone notices. Once, when you went to Mexico for Christmas with your family, you came back with your hair braided and beaded, and didn't take them out for at least two weeks, even though your head started to hurt, and it was January. You still wear a toe ring, but just don't make it public. You’ve spent a lot of time hunched over YouTube tutorials for "messy fishtail braids," but always give up halfway through. Once, for an entire summer when you were nine-years-old, you were convinced that you were a mermaid and spent the days in the pool in your backyard perfecting your Ariel hair flip and holding your breath underwater.
