    I just keep repeating the same mistakes.

    .. How can I enjoy my senior year knowing that I've lost someone dear to me? even worse.. Knowing that it's all my fault?

    I lost my best friend

    So he was laid to rest on Saturday.

    That car crash left him looking almost unrecognisable. I'm glad I didn't view the images - I wouldn't want to remember that. Another soul departed. Young and free. Gone but never forgotten. R.I.P. Cuzzo :-(

    and I saw a video of her and her lover. I love my mom, she raised me well for 22 years. It saddens me that I can't seem to find it in my heart to forgive her. I can't talk to her like I used to. It feels like I lost a very important person in my life. My dad knows none of this.
