    Lately my life has been one huge mess.

    I just learned that now I have to switch schools as well. AND they don't even have good science classes which is so stupid. Finals are in a week and I've been having at 3 MAJOR panic attacks a day. I just can't seem to keep it together. Any advice?

    I want to cry. my friend is bad at me

    because I ignored him. if was because I was confused and angry and I just wanted to take a break and think. I was gonna text him the next day but he won't talk to me. he's officially done with me because I pushed him away. it's my fault. it's completely NY fault.
