Well, it's official. I've graduated from high school! Got better grades than I thought I would. I knew I had a D and an A in two of my classes, and I was expecting basically a pass or fail in my remaining two (a.k.a an F or a D). However, I got a B and a C! Yes, that means in my four classes I got an A, B, C, and a D. I'm a strange person...
Also, I'm feeling a whole freaking lot better. I still have one more "level" to go down in tapering off my medication, but I think I'm through the worst of the withdraw. I'm still a bit mentally retarded from the withdraw effects though. As an example, my sister jokingly misspoke the phrase "Taste my delicious worms" into "Delicious my tasteless worms" (don't ask) and I just continued on the conversation like nothing was wrong. Also, I'm still dyslexic as hell. Just in these two paragraphs alone I must have made 20 mistakes so far, BUT I'M HAPPY so I don't care anymore.
Once I finish with all this medication bullshit, I'm going to look into finding a driver's education school and an animal shelter to volunteer at. Get my summer started proper. Geeze, it'll be so nice to focus on learning some life skills instead of fretting over school returning in three months... Like I think I've said before, I have no idea what kind of person I am or what kind of things I'll do with my time when I don't have school draining all the life out of me. Ten to nine years of complete suffering dealing with anxiety, depression, unsympathetic teachers, bullies, mental disorders, medication, crap special ed programs, perfectly good grades going sour, therapy, and more... finally coming to some sort of end. The people that say, "School will be the best time of you life," are full of shit. For some it might be true, but assuming that school's enjoyable for everyone is a huge goddamn generalization. So many of the things I suffered through in school I will probably never ever see or use for the rest of my life. With the general career path of either game design or animal care, will I ever have to know how to use MLA format in essays? No. Will I ever have to know how the Roman empire fell? No. Will I ever have to present a poem in front of a room full of rowdy morons? No. Will I ever have to use cotangents, secants, or cosecants? My Dad's an engineer using math every day of his life, and he says fuck no. So many years basically wasted learning useless information... just to get a little piece of paper... A diploma that doesn't even guarantee you understand or remembered anything information that you were forced to repeat. Honestly, fuck the American school system. Yes, education is important, but it is full of shit. Such shit. So much shit. But I'm beyond it now.
ON A DIFFERENT NOTE... Animal Crossing: New Leaf, anyone?
I'm super addicted to it. I loved playing AC: Wild World so much as a kid and now there's finally a DS sequel. Here's some of my contact info...

Mayor Name: Kelly

Just note if you visit my town in a dream or in "real life", disregard some of the grids all over the ground. That's to map out acres. I was making an accurate, detailed map of my town, and I'm organizing fruit trees into certain acres. I'm more than half way done though! (P.S. If you bring my axes I will gladly pay you in items or bells. I'm going through so many axes moving these darn trees around!)
Journal speal over. Have a nice day!
