THIS IS USUALLY THE PLACE WHERE SOMEONES WRITES SOMETHING ENTIRELY INAUTHENTIC ABOUT THEMSELVES FEEDING INTO THE         //////////////////////

MY NAME IS PARSA AFSHARJAVAN 

 I AM PERSIAN-AMERICAN 

 

[THEY] SAY YOU CAN LEARN A LOT ABOUT SOMEONE BY KNOWING WHAT AREA OF THEIR BODY THEY WASH FIRST WHILE BATHING

THE AREA OF MY BODY THAT I WASH FIRST IS MY CHEST

HALF OF MY LEFT CENTRAL INCISOR IS SYNTHETIC (4TH GRADE JUMP ROPE ACCIDENT)

I HAD ISSUES WITH BED WETTING UNTIL THE 6TH GRADE

MY FRIST HEARTBREAK WAS AT AGE 16

I HAVE ATTEMPTED AND LOST A LOVED ONE TO SUICIDE

I HAVE ASCENDED FROM EARTH INTO THE SKY AND DESCENDED INTO NEW LANDS

I HAVE SEEN DEATH

I HAVE MADE LOVE

I AM A BALL OF LIGHT TRAPPED IN THIS VESSLE HAVING A HUMAN EXPERIENCE

I ACCEPT THAT THIS IS ONLY TEMPORARY
