I'm Not A Rude B***h Who Blanks You, I'm Face Blind

<img alt="life less ordinary banner" src="http://i.huffpost.com/gen/5261864/original.jpg" width="300" height="35" /> Not knowing who your friends are is an intensely isolating feeling, particularly when you're a paranoid pre-teen. Every kid worries about what other people think of them - I didn't even have prior experience to let me know what people were like, or what they thought I was like. Not knowing who to smile at in the hallway, who to talk to in breaktime, which classmates would be kind to me and which would call me desperate behind my back for acting like I was friends with them - it left me veering between extreme confidence and being utterly withdrawn.
