I started Highschool recently, it pretty much sucks, I have no friends, girls who used to be my friend now act as if they never knew me, and I'm being bullied by some guy named Sean... I kicked his sorry butt one day, it felt good! My English teacher is pretty awesom though, apart from books we are already supposed to read, he noticed my interest in reading, and now tells me about books I should read. I recently read 'To Kill a Mockingbird' and I loved it! My teacher, Bill, and I are now on First name basis, it is pretty cool I tell him just about EVERYTHING, I told him about my sister and her abusive boyfriend, and he simply told me that we all accept the love we think we deserve.... Although I told Bill not to say anything, he proceeded to call my parents and tell them about how my sister's boyfriend hit her. Needless to say...
