I was contemplating not finishing high school, just testing out and never looking back. But I have decided that I'm going to finish it out. I'll survive the torture that is these terrible years because I have to pay my dues. I have to do what I have to do. I want to graduate alongside the handful of amazing people that have made the last 5 years of my life worth all of the pain. I also want to prove that the people that have made the last 5 years hell on Earth for the rest of us, are no better than I am. I want to prove that despite their bullshit, I am here to stay. I will make it through this. I can't give up now. I have to do this. I have to prove myself, not for anyone else, but for myself. I have to find closure and show myself that the horrible high school antics haven't killed me. I have to prove this to my self. I have to. I simply must.
