Five years ago I was a scared little girl with bleached hair and high heels, insecure and trying too hard to be what I’m definitely not today. I started high school on the alternative route, and at 14 I found myself in college classes with a few other weird kids mixed into a crowd of adults who stared at us with some combination of confusion and irritation. Our school was unorganized, everything came last minute. But I found my second family there. My three amigas, my first love, my wild summertime friends, and my best friend. Those people are all responsible for who I am today. For who I’m with today, and for where I will be in the future. And even through horrible fights and so many tears, I wouldn’t change a thing.
Yesterday was more perfect than I could have imagined. My baby and my parents surprised me with an awesome afternoon downtown, and it felt so good walking down the street with no shoes on, holding his hand. He spent half an hour in a bead store with me and didn’t complain once. I graduated from the school that I will always remember as one of the best decisions of my life, crying like a little kid the whole time. My mom put on old home movies. I met some new friends in Winston. Josh scared some hood dudes away from me with a pool stick. And I think last night we fell more in love than we were just the day before. It was intense. I’m so happy.
A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.
i think the reason perfume commercials are so weird is because they have to advertise a smell without using smells
growing up means realizing a lot of your old friends are assholes
Community College Tips:
- Don’t talk to anybody
- Don’t make eye contact
- Avoid the cafeteria because they will probably be doing a flash mob to current viral song
- The guy who constantly tries to play devils advocate with the teacher and sound philosophical whenever he speaks actually is failing the class but it doesn’t matter because grades doesn’t determine his self worth only upvotes matter
Holy cow, this is so accurate.
