Trigger warning: self-harm, death This piece of writing happened because I had put this song on repeat and I just couldn’t stop listening to it. It’s almost unedited (I have only changed two things) so be kind!
I have many notebooks but nothing like my old SMASH book. I was one of those who dived deep into the craze of ‘SMASH booking’ – a type of art journalling/ commonplacing in pretty notebooks called ‘SMASH books’.
Sometimes when I see teenage girls or even pre-teen girls, I just want to go over to them and guide them somehow. I want to warn them about things – I want to tell them about my experience with teenage love.
