My stupid cousin Luke...!

First of all: I’m so sick of studying! These two months are gonna be awful, I know it. The most of them, at least. I just started last Monday and I still got a long way to go. 9 lessons in toto. I’ve sat for 2 of them.

Secondly: Yesterday, I did sth a bit stupid. Very stupid, actually. I went out with Luke, we went clubbing, but he wanted to stay along till 4 or 5 am so I promised my aunt I’d take care of him (he’s younger than me, so…). But idiotic him got drunk! So I had to go over to his house, leave a note that he’s sleeping over and then bring him to my place and sober him up with coffee and have him sleep on my bed. I slept on a divan next to him.

I did the best I could to make sure he doesn’t get into trouble, even though he should have, cause he messed up. But my dad woke up when we got home and noticed drunk Luke and gave me a little piece of his mind.

I can’t say I blame him, it’s my fault as much as it is Luke’s. I shoulda watched after him and not let him drink that much. Unfortunately here the I.D. thing doesn’t apply that much. I mean, I think there’s a law or sth but no one asks for I.D. (I’m not a minor, btw, once you turn 18 you’re considered an adult in my country - that’s why I’m pro this law). Anyway, this morning after I drove Luke back home, my dad came and talked to me again. And one thing made the most sense to me: “I’m really disappointed at you, Billy

Oooo that didn't sound fun. But you did a very sweet thing by making sure he didn't get in trouble with his mom (even if at the same time it meant saving your own skin). Hopefully your dad won't say anything to her. Yeah sounds like you should lay off taking your cousin clubbing for a while. As for how your dad would react, it's often very hard to predict that. Don't feel rushed into telling him. You've got to do it on your own time.

Silence that spoke, and eloquence of eyes."

that sucks. Its good that yo

that sucks. Its good that you actually took care of him when he was drunk and didnt abandon him. Dont beat yourself up about it everyone makes mistakes. As for your dad youre never gonna know until you tell him.

And she wonders where these dreams go
'cause the world got in her way
