I was quiet, and depressed as a teenager. When I did spend time with peers, we would hang out at someone’s house (to play chess, dance, or talk). I loved to dance, play chess, and read. Individuality, health, and beauty were most important to me. I read many books and magazines (on self-help, health, and beauty). I spent a great deal of time trying health and beauty products, and styling my hair. I spent most of my time alone (reading, dancing, and thinking of ways to become successful). I also did a lot of sewing (designing clothes). I wasn’t interested in being associated with (or part of) any groups or cliques.
