Tomorrow will be a battle. I know it and I can feel my body gearing up but I also know what I need to do. I know I won't give in, I will keep my strength and remember where this started and what I was promised and I will hold that promise like a light in front of me.
A good friend and I discussed our now grown-up life. We spoke about many things but one thing puzzles us both. In high-school we both believed that those typical high-school shenanigans - the petty arguing, the silly groups, the outright deception, the mean scheming, the foolish slander, the all-consuming gossip, the insecurity - would end the same glorious day we got our diplomas. As all grown-ups know but don't tell, it doesn't. It keeps going with some people more often than not acting not even like teenagers but like small children.
I feel the only thing I can do now is what I did in high-school when things got rough and I felt some part of me straying in that dangerous direction of destructive behavior, I'll force myself to see what I know to be true and not let myself be side-tracked or bullied.
See you in school kids.
