    If I Could Just Get Over the First Hump...

    I need to get my head together again.  Everyday I want to scream, throw things.  I try to be strong, I try to stay away, but he always manages to pull me back in...and then hurts me again. If I could just get through one week without any contact at all, I think I...

    This Year

    I thought that I was going to make it through this year without any sort of scars, but it turns out that it's easier said than done. It's only been about three days of school and already I'm getting hate email and being flicked off as I walk to class. Not to mention, I'm stressed...
