  • I used to be a robot. Pre-Summer 2011 I was only functioning. I breathed, talked, and walked like a human, but I never quite felt human. All I cared for were grades and test scores; I didn’t sing, play or dance. In order to preserve my robotic sense-of-self I refused to break my comfort zone for...
