So kids, lets get personal and dive back through my life to the most awkward stage of all, PUBERTY. Now for me this happened at a real early stage of my life as I was still in primary school and most definitely the first this happened to. I know you’re probably thinking TMI or whatever but i just want y’all to feel close to me y’know?
So way back in the day when I was in year 3/4 I remember my best friend at the time started getting pubes and I was getting boobs. It felt super good to know that someone was going through all these changes at the same time as me and the fact she was my best friend was so comforting. Honestly speaking I don’t think we really spoke about it but the option was there and as mine was visible and her’s were not maybe I had it worse than her? Yo when you get your first bra and the boys notice, that shit is crazy. I don’t know who taught them this but they insist on flicking your straps which hurts like shit and all of a sudden they get the horn and wanna give you feel ups (which at 8 years old is defo sexual harassment but at 21 becomes a craving lol).
First came boobs then came pubes. When they start growing they are the cutest things all thin and alluring. I miss the days of minor peach fuzz everywhere instead of full grown hairs everywhere because your girl hates shaving. One day you’re a smooth baby and the next you have excess hair in a place you never asked for.
Finally the periods. Now girl, I remember this like yesterday. It was just me and my big brother at home and I was laying on my mum’s bed watching tv. I got this almost sticky feeling downstairs which I ignored for as long as possible before I went to the toilet. I sat on the seat and looked down to see a deep red in my nickers. I didn’t know what to do so I changed my underwear ad told my brother who suggested I call my mum (which went to voicemail so I left a message). When she returned the call she coached me through pads and all that and everything was cool. After that she made sure to call all my friends mum to discuss it, which was hella embarrassing but whatever.
So yeah that’s kinda my story about all the awkward fazes in my pre-pubescent life. This probably won’t help anyone so maybe I’ll re-write when I get a little better at story telling. Anyways, that’s all for now and I guess I’ll keep my little stories coming.
