my whole family is embarrassed by me. not because of how i dress or the music i listen to or where i stand in politics, (though they hate that shit too), but for doing all the things we are normally taught. im 17, i have a job, my license, and a car. i pay my own bills, i always go to school, and i always do my best to pass. i want my diploma. i know where i want to be in 5 years, i know what i believe in, and i dont let people sway me to think otherwise. they cant do most any of these things. so i am an embarassment. its dissapointing.
