A lot of people aren't going to agree with alot of things you do in life..
You can't live for everyone else at the end of the day you can only do what makes you happy...
You have to live with your choices not them..
Of course family isn't going to like that because your taking off from school.. and its people that are strangers... but we all have to do things for ourselves sometimes that our family don't understand at the moment. I know that better than most trust me. Do what you must, and enjoy your experience, learn what you can... you would regret not doing it. Just be safe, and I am sure your not stupid. Have fun and good luck.
ok what is it?
"What are you doing....I want some!"
Let me be the judge of if it's a good or bad thing...
to hell with what other people think. be happy.
