There was a time where I thought I was the coolest person around. I was cool with different cliques and mostly hung out with the guys. I was not the nicest person alive, but I particularly remember a time where I was not very nice to one of my closer friends. It happened during the 7th grade. She had a crush on a friend of mine who was like a brother to me. What I decided to do was play with her feelings, something, that to this day, I still don’t know how she forgave me for.
