    I'm Spoilt As Can Be

    I could have anything I want in the world, but I feel like a failure. I'm supposed to be in college -6th form- but I fought with my mum. She wants to send me to america, to straighten me out, because I'm a "hoe". I barely passed my GCSE's, I didn't even study...

    Fail

    I don't know if it's from my mom always telling me I was a disappointment, or if I really am a failure. Either way, I feel like one eternally.

    I'm socially awkward,

    especially around girls. Because of this my friends joke about it, and I laugh along, but it actually gets to me mentally. And around the general public, I don't talk, I listen, which places me in the back of the crowd..
