The broken in you doesn't make me run

I went home early from school today. So I've been in my sweats since 1pm and slept for the majority of the day. I needed a mental health day. I hate my high school. I suppose it's for the typical reasons. But I don't really think so. I'm not an out cast, every body knows me. I can hang out with anybody. But I'm bored. Out of my freaking mind. None of the teachers are willing to step up and actually teach. It's the same curriculum thats been taught since kindergarden. And because I'm a junior, it's too late to switch into a private school or a different high school. And besides, theres really no convienent other school around here. I wish though. Somebody in my one of my Running Start classes said it best: "Kids who go to Lakes go to Pierce College. It's that simple." And it is. And it's so freakin sad. Because I'm determined not to stay here. I need adventure or atleast a different boring town to stare at for a while. Nothing ever comes to this town. Lakewood is that random map dot that you ever find. Local news skips us. I kid you not. I love Seattle. I love Salem, I love Portland. But I hate it here. I ♥ the weather most days. But I cannot stand this little podunk town. And because my high school sucks, I am destined for a community college. Nobody goes straight to a university unless they go for athletics. And thats another thing. We have fantastic athletics and choirs but shitty acidemics. And I'm supposed to be okay with this?! I can't get into college with athletics or acidemics. And my fmaily has too much money for scholarships. So I am forced into debt just so I don't have to be another low life product of my environment. Amy is not satisfied with medicore. But anyways...My kitty sleep curled under the covers with me today about 3 plus hours. His purr is the most soothing thing in the world...I love my little fuzz ball. So one of my ex's and I started talking again yesterday. I have no idea what changed and made us not hate eachother anymore. And I got a message from her yesterday that she send in January...Over 3 months ago and I get it now...After I talk to her for many, many hours. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. And thats all folks...

Never be afraid to stand up for whats right. If you lose your values, you've lost yourself, so dont let someone change you into someone you arnt. Don't be afraid of the punishment, Rejoyce in the freedom that let to it.
