Life on mute with lost remote.

by Layne on March 25, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Things have died down slightly from last week. I decided that after my teacher wouldn't listen when I tried to reason with her, and my counselor sided with her to just end the whole issue, that I guess I just have to tough it out through this year. I've been doing so, but everything seems muted, dull, unexciting. I have a boyfriend that's going to ask me to prom one of these days. Yay! ..but honestly I don't know if I'm all that excited. School just seems like a fuzzy dream that blends together with endless stress and long late nights. I haven't even been talking to my friends that much lately. I don't know what's wrong, but I also don't know how to fix it.
