    But First, Me

    But First, Me

    Growing up is hard to do, especially when you're late to the party. Born nearly two weeks beyond my mother's due date, I guess I should have seen that coming from the very beginning. Though I've always been a fast learner and quite articulate, my seemingly innate obsession with perfection has certainly posed its challenges and often resulted in that whole 'one step forward, two steps back' thing. Does my hair look okay? Wait, I can't take a picture like this... it's my "bad" side. I really like this recording, but I don't like the way I sang "sometimes..." You can't really hear the last "s" enough... let's do that another time... and can you nudge it two clicks to the left? Perform tonight with no soundcheck? I don't think I'll be able to do that. I know people are expecting me, but I'm just not comfortable. Sorry. You want me to wear that? I would, but my boobs are really small and my knees are oddly shaped. We'll have to choose something else... I can bring something of my own if you'd like...

Their struggle wasn't in vain, and now the women of today owe their lives and rights to those that came before us.
