I wake up everyday to the

sound of a punk rock alarm,

roll out of bed

and grab a towel

to shower. I shampoo

my hair and dry off.

My clothes are cute,

my shoes on point.

I brush my teeth, blow-

dry my hair. I take my pills

and add the color pastels to my

hair. Then I carefully

apply my mascara and eye-

liner, with a touch of lipgloss

which is usually gone by midday.

I fix my nail polish, black to match

my outfit. I rub on my acne cream

and fastened on my earrings,

replacing the bracelets I removed

for my shower. I check my planner

to make sure I know what is on

my schedule for the day. I pee.

Then I am ready.
