My Story I was born on a probably rainy Tuesday in London in 1995. I went to prim, all-girls schools until I was 16 years old. I remember getting told off a lot.
"No running in the corridors, Natasha!"
"Off with that nail polish!"
"Pull your skirt down! "
Most of what I was taught at school is irrelevant now (the internet had hardly been invented). But all the while, a sneaky idea was brewing in me:
All rules are created by humans. All humans are imperfect. Therefore all rules are imperfect also.
Suddenly, I got a taste for doing things I’m not supposed to do. And talking about things I’m not supposed to talk about.
So... I lost my virginity when I was 15. After we broke up, my boyfriend got a "new girlfriend", who he later married and now has a child with. I've forgotten almost everything about him, except his orgasm face. That I still remember perfectly clearly.
Before my first boyfriend, I had fallen in love with something else: writing. I started writing my first novel when I was 13 years old. Last summer, when I was tripping on mushrooms, I had a very interesting thought: I’m not sure I’ll ever love a man as much as I love writing. So far, I'm yet to be proven wrong, I’ll keep you posted if anything changes.
