Lol your dad called you white
Omg we’re so fucked for the next four months
It’ll be okay
I’ll become a starved insomniac and you’ll become a puddle of melodrama
What I don’t understand is when our behavior becomes unacceptable?
Hella tempted to talk to the therapist, but I have no time
Senior year is like the last two real weeks of junior year on repeat
I miss television
Wait no, I miss feeling well rested
And I’ll be doing my thing, seeing you guys now and again when my schedule permits it. I’ll be a body of terribly concealed sarcasm, anger and irritation. It’ll be the usual for us.
We’ve done this before. As tempted as I am to just avoid everything and regain my peace of mind, I know that I can pull through this again. You can too. It’s more of your decision than mine, but I believe you guys can do this. Whatever it is.
To show you guys how serious I am, I’m reblogging this. Legit reblogging and adding a comment. The last time I posted anything was… a year ago? More or less?
Absent, you’re going to be stressed. Your parents have the option of either helping you or kicking you while you’re down. If they choose the second, kindly tell them the previous sentence. If they keep kicking, kindly tell them to get out of your room. If they don’t, find somewhere quiet to calm down. It can be the bathroom, or even outside of your house. They need to know their limits as you see them, not only the limits they have set for themselves.
Switch, as important as finishing everything is, there’s a point when it becomes unhealthy. I’ll say it: I get a bit worried when you say you don’t sleep much, or miss a meal. Even though I’m being a giant hypocrite in saying this, school is not our life. You can talk to the counselor during 20 minute morning break break, or lunchtime. Just drop in when the door is open and you have five minutes. Say you’re in a rush. The counselor will understand; she has to deal with many others.
I hope you both understand this. Maybe you’ll follow my advice, and maybe you won’t. Either way, taking care of yourself is the most important thing you can do right now. It’s not college applications, or essays, or presentations. It’s you who is important.
