How Did I Get Here by @ermahgarton


It started off as a harmless interest. It grew so rapidly that no one had time to notice, and by the time they did, it was too late. No one understood the rush it gave her; no one knew how incredible it felt to see herself like that. How could they? Even she wouldn’t have understood it a year ago. But once she started, she just couldn’t stop. It all began the day her parents installed Photoshop on the family computer for her mother’s photography class. The girl didn’t think much of it at first. Then one day she saw a picture on the Internet and said to herself, “I wonder what it would look like if I put my face on that.” Pretty soon it was all she could do. Copy and paste, copy and paste… She couldn’t stop photo-shopping her head onto space cats.
