Hmhm. Charming post.
This wasn't bad, but not exactly 'great'. I liked it, to say the least.
I absolutely enjoyed how genuine it is. It's all so very real. I can relate to about all of these feelings. And these are the types of feelings that are more like rites of passage, not situational.
They are like milestones in our lives. I remember the first time I opened a bag of chips. I thought it was a huge deal because my dad is a towering man, and I thought I was just like him when I did the same. I'm no girl, but I can see why a girl would consider her lip balm in the same plane as lip stick. We were childish, and simple things like that made us feel elevated to a higher level.
And then, what happens when we reach the level?
I liked this very much. However, there were a ton of errors. I would revise it a bit, but there are some lines that were worded funkishly and I would have to rewrite them differently. I don't want to do that. I don't like to do that. I feel it looses the writer's personal touch, influence, inspiration, and personality.
I will revise the easier ones, like punctuation and capitalization, if no one else does.
