and thought, “I can’t kill myself today, it’s Christmas.”
Just know, you’re not the only one. Stay tough through the holidays. These are the times when families are supposed to be brought together, when in reality, they’re torn apart.

andyoudontknowkarate: FUCKING. THIS.
mrsbrandyalexander: Can I print this out and replace my transcripts with this. >Sigh<
georgasmic: Thanks to an extremely fucked up school system that doesn’t take diagnosed mental disorders seriously, I end up failing inevitably no matter how hard I want or try to pass. Then I get labeled as stupid or lazy, like it’s my fault.
live-and-let-ride: thank you. it’s called sophomore and junior year.
imarealboyy: My teachers can now suck my dick.
pierce-the-sirens: Oh my god can someone show this to my mom?
I’m always here for anyone (:
