    This is for for real!

    ! Whenever I enter a meeting I want to run away from it! I mean can't you just get on with it! Sitting in the same place for hours and yet not reaching anywhere near to an end! Who else feels the same?

    I want to run away and come back

    when I turn eighteen. I can't take the criticism that I get from family. I hate them. I don't want to stay here.
