When I was in middle school, I’d close my door really dramatically, and I’d take a nap. It’d be like 4:30 and I’m like, ‘I just need to take a nap, okay?’ before I did my homework. But it was like this safe place I had where I would close my eyes and I’d, like, dream and fantasize and kind of be braver than I was in, you know, reality, and so it kind of became this magical world where I wasn’t judged and everything could go my way and it was magical for me because no one knew about it, you know?
