Around here, it is tradition that for graduation, we all jump in the fountain: My chubby legs couldn’t make it further than the bottom level, but my awesome friends insisted that I should be at the very top, rocking out! And so we did :)
^This uplifting experience made me not even hesitate to participate in another tradition: Skinny dipping! In the middle of the city (it’s a harbor city), at bright daylight! Only one person made snide remarks “I don’t understand why SHE did it” but was silenced by my awesome friends, that I of course did it for the same reason as everyone else: To have fun, and to have a last crazy experience w/my friends! Why did she do it, they asked? People would much rather swim with me, who were there for the right reasons, than to swim with her, who was appearently only there to feel superior.
My friends are awesome, and I love my body <3
