Illustration by Eric A.
I was born in Plano, Texas, in the early ‘90s. Shortly after birth, I moved to a small suburb of Houston. My family was very wealthy and I knew it. We grew up spoiled, getting whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted it. My father, a successful businessman, was seldom home so I think he probably tried to buy the love of his children. My mom seemed to be your happy, suburban housewife and I always considered us normal, until my dad abruptly separated from her and moved to Portland, Ore.
