[Image Description: Me, smiling and looking tired as I stand in front of a relatively blank and dimly lit wall. My body’s in profile, facing an out-of-frame window. My head is slightly turned to face the camera, which I’m side-eyeing. Sunlight angles low, falling across my black t-shirt, leaving my light-skinned face shadowed. Scattered on the wall are rainbow flecks from a disco-ball shaped sun-catcher in the window. One rainbow smudge is on my forehead. Another is caught in my messy brown and grey short hair.]
