So, I guess I should start one of these.

Life's been crazy my junior year. Like, seriously.

First off, my family is slowly falling apart. It started whenever we moved to Oklahoma, but it's gotten worse. My mom might not make it to my next birthday, my dad is on the verge of becoming an abusive person, and I'm just trying to control and contain. I don't even know what will happen whenever I leave the house. I can't even bear to think about it. It's gonna be horrible, I just know it.

Speaking of leaving, I am now seriously looking into colleges around the area. My junior year is almost over, and I need to start looking at my options carefully. One of them that I'm seriously considering is the Art Institutes. There's one in Dallas that's not far from where I live now, and it's all of what I want in my career. I'm seriously considering that as an option. I know that there are other things out there, but, man, it's so hard.

And, looking back on my junior year, I realized something. I don't ever want that to happen again. Like, ever. I let my grades fall because of stupid reasons, and now, it's hard getting them back up with only one week of school left. I also shut my girlfriend out of my life for the longest time. I'm not making that mistake again. I mean, she's awesome, why couldn't myself in December realize that?

But, all of that's going to change during the summer. I'm finally getting my life back in track, and all it took was a metaphorical slap in the face. I've officially quit League of Legends (If you don't know what that is, it was basically my life for wayyyy too long.) I'm going to be getting my permit over the summer, a job, and I'm most definitely going to be getting into shape over the summer.

This is something I've been putting off for way too long. Well, life. I'm looking you in the face. I've made my choice. The ball's in your court, now.

I can't go back to yesterday - because I was a different person then.

Hey, Nathan Smile 

So to start off I'm sorry about your family situation. I didn't realize it was getting that bad :/ Remember, I'm always here to talk to if you need me. 

Also, I'm really proud of you for taking life by the horns. I had to do the same thing. I also let my grades drop my Junior year and wound up failing Algebra II and going to summer school. This year, though, I made it onto the Superintendent's Honor Roll. So just know that you can definitely do it and I'll be here to help if you need me ^_^
