    Just Because

    I learned that just because something is enjoyable and fun, doesn't mean it's the best thing for you. I always used to think that experimenting with drugs wouldn't have any negative effects on me but i was wrong and learned my lesson.

    This is on a bus back from camp.

    I’m thirteen and so are you. Before I left for camp I imagined it would be me and three or four other dudes I hadn’t met yet, running around all summer, getting into trouble. It turned out it would be me and just one girl. That’s you. And we’re still at camp as long as...

    We were (mom and I), in the kitchen,

    talking. I saw her all the dishes and take care of all the dirt we've scattered all across the house. Then I decided to live alone. I won't have to put up with another person, compromise things, be abused, won't have to answer anyone, can live freely. And I love freedom!
