Among a pile of photos of Lab Partner smoking cigs, a copy of my grad speech, and various academic medals

Proof That I Was an Even Bigger Dumbass Than I Knew Myself To Be: Something That I Typed Sometime In 1988, For Reasons Unknown and At This Point Unknowable

Why I want to graduate a year early

1. Because I don't think I can make it another three and a half years in this high school. I think I'm losing my mind.
2. Because I want to have a year to rest before college.
3. Because I feel like I'm wasting my time here.
4. Because I could use my extra year to work and save money for college.

Why I don't want to graduate a year early

1. Because I want to graduate with my class.
2. Because I don't like the class a year ahead of me.
3. Because I would probably grow apart from my friends.
4. Because everyone would think I was a snobby showoff.
5. Because I'm scared that I won't be able to keep my grades up with such a heavy courseload.

These are all really important to me. I do want to graduate with my class, go on our senior trip, and stuff like that, and I hate the sophomore class as a whole. But I am very serious about feeling that I am losing my mind, thinking of the three and a half years left to go and the feeling that I am wasting my time here. I'm so burned out on tan walls, gross lunches, useless classes, boredom, the whole routine of things. It's really depressing me. I have nothing to do. I need to get out.

I love teenage academic angst and I know it well. So, did you end up graduating early? Methinks not, right?

Nope, did the usual & took 4 years. This kind of thing is why you could not pay me enough to go back to that age

OH MY GOD. You need to go to Sarah Brown's Cringe show and read this. It's really fabulous.

B'mouse, this was the LEAST CRINGEY of the bunch. No kidding. There was stuff in that box that nearly goddamn turned my entire body inside out with shame.
