So it's official, I'm making the move to Colorado to continue my training and hopefully make it onto the US Paralympic Ski Team. So.. Wish me luck!
High Heels-I have always felt a sort of comfort in them.
However, due to lack of a femur, I have never in my 18 years of life fully worn a pair. Since I was a toddler I can remember sneaking into my older sisters room and stealing their right shoes all the time. When a shoe was missing, everyone knew who to blame. I often went for the tallest heel they owned. I'm not sure why I found these so interesting, maybe it was because they were so foreign to me? Either way, I loved them. I always felt so.. so.. normal? I guess it's because I am the youngest and I have always wanted to do what my older siblings did. They got to wear nice pretty shoes while I was rocking the flats growing up. Although, I gotta give props to my mother-she did a fine job finding me cute/funtional things, even to this day. Yes, I did just admit to being 18 and having my mother shop for me. I'll take her services as long as I can get them. But anyway, back to the shoes. So yeah, to this day I still find myself walking around my house with one high heel on. Sometimes I even stand in front of the mirror and just look at my leg for what seems like hours. It really is like a whole new world to me. I hope that one day I will be able to get the right foot that enables me to discover this world, but for now.. I think I'm okay styling flats to prom again. (I'm the only one of my friends who didn't complain the whole night that her feet hurt.)
