    I changed grade because I thought people in my

    grade weren't loud and talkative, but it seems it was just because we didn't meet each others yet, but before I realized it, I asked my mum to talk to headmaster to switch me to other grade. Classmates here just take selfies, girls cling on guys and act soo popular and they all...

    I suppose mine is different.

    I was actually called "the biggest mistake of my life" by the woman I wanted to spend my life with. I was always good and loyal to her, and never loved anyone more than her. And now it is over. I think my worst mistake was believing in her. It's a sad realization.
