This is how to run a stick of Chapstick
down the black boxes on your scantron
so the grading machine skips the wrong
answers. This is how to honor roll. Hell,
this is how to National Honor Society.
This is being voted “Most Likely to Marry
for Money” or “Talks the Most, Says the
Least” for senior superlatives. This is
stepping around the kids having panic
attacks in the hallway. This is being the
kid having a panic attack in the hallway.
This is making the A with purple moons
stamped under both eyes. We had to try.
This is telling the ACT supervisor you have
ADHD to get extra time. Today, the average
high school student has the same anxiety
levels as the average 1950’s psychiatric
patient. We know the Pythagorean theorem
by heart, but short-circuit when asked
“How are you?” We don’t know. We don’t
know. That wasn’t on the study guide.
We usually know the answer, but rarely

I can’t wait to get the fuck out of here.

"I’d like to say I know what I’m doing with my life but the only things I know are that I can’t sleep unless I’m on your chest,
and that my head hurts when I think about you ever being a stranger to me.
And sometimes
When we walk in the dark and cry on the beach together,
I look at you in the starlight and you look like someone I’ve never met before.
But at the same time, my heart recognises you as being it’s home.
Maybe that never goes."

do you ever see a person you used to be friends with and you’re like “glad i got the fuck outta that one”
