  • In the seventh grade, I switched from an all-organic, garden growing, emotions-sharing Montessori school to a typical Catholic junior high. One afternoon, on the ride home from school, I started crying because I realized that I had started wearing nail polish all the time. Before I changed schools, I never painted my nails.
