Real CHAPTER 1 WhimsyBirde Feelings? There are some feelings you can’t shake. Real feelings. Not your run-of-the-mill teen angst that can be easily cleared up with some Camila Cabello and garbage takeout. But like, legit emotions. And trust me, okay? I am an expert on teen angst, so I know what I’m talking about. These feelings. The ones that stick. Those are real. Real, and actual, and twice as crappy. And confusing. Example: There is some really hot person walking by you at starbucks and you’re like, woah, they’re hot. And then they’re gone. And that’s that. It’s pretty chill. But compare that with your beautiful best friend who you’ve, like, secretly worshipped for all of high school and you realize that the hot kid who walked by you at starbucks is literally nothing. Exactly.
