    I Felt Terrible And I Still Do.

    I remember the first time I cheated on a physics test back in 10th grade. I felt so bad. I actually wanted to go and confess to the teacher and tell her I cheated. I wrote the formulas down on a post it note and I taped it on the backside of my calculator's cover. The teacher...

    I haven't cheated. I'm the one he cheated with.

    I feel so so so bad about it. We were both off our faces, and kissed. I know being drunk isn't an excuse, I don't even know how it happened, I hugged him goodbye and it just happened. Terrible thing is though, what hits me and really hits home, is that I'm really good friends...
