    Arg!

    I think I have managed the totally screw up my entire highschool life in one letter. Ok. So I really liked this girl so one day I was getting a little tipsy and I decide that I'm gonna write her a letter. Chicks at my school dig letters. Mistake one. So I write this FOUR $$$$ing page letter (hope that word got blanked). It pretty much made me sound like I stalked her! I wrote a lot of crap about how I liked her and was jealous and the sort. Normal drunken talk. Well I fold it up and stuff it in my wallet. Mistake number two. So the next day I don't really remember what I did as I continued to drink after I wrote the letter and forgot all about it. Well I have class with her today and we hung out. (We are friends, but I really like her a bunch) Well I was digging through my wallet at lunch and noticed a nicely folded up piece of paper with her name on it. I figure it's some girls note I forgot to pass on to her. Speak of the devil, she comes strolling down the hallway towards lunch. Well I pop that piece of paper in her hand. Mistake number three. See what I now realise is what is contained on that piece of paper. Stuff that if some of her guy friends read I would commit suicide. Well she has what all girls have.

    Cantshuttheirdamnmouth syndrom. Well I get home hoping that she read it and didn't care and didn't tell anyone. I'm odviously on the bad list of karma. I get a phone call from a guy named Cory. His first words were quoting a sentence on that note. My life is over.

    I almost did the same thing. I wrote a (fairly) long letter to a girl, gave it to a friend to pass onto her. Luckily, I managed to get it back from him before he gave it to her.

    Yeah. My high school life is doomed. Tomorrow is going to be a living hell having to face all of the people.

    1) What the $$$$ are you doing drinking if you are in Highschool?
    2) You screwed up, learn from it and move on. Might seem like you are neck deep in crap but its really not that bad. You will have many more chances to make even bigger mistakes. Thats life.
    3) At least she knows know what a drunken idiot you are. Err wait I meant she knows how you feel about her
    4) Yes I am laughing at your plight. I've done things that are much more stupid then that. I lived, so will you.

    Yeah I know. Drinking at high school is pretty common down here. Hell I live in a redneck town. Anyhow even thinking about tomorrow makes me queasy. I think I'm skipping

    Here is some advise: Go to school tomorrow. Face it like a man, take the teasing, and move on. If you skip tomorrow then it'll happen Friday. Sooner you get it over with the sooner you can put it behind you. This is also a good opportunity (spelling?) to see who your true friends are. They will be the ones that give you the slight jabs but will still support you (well as much as any guy supports another guy).

    Well the longer you wait to go back the harder it will be to go back so you may as well just show up tomorrow and face the music. I don't know what you have to be worried about, you wrote the chick a letter and told her how you feel. If she doesn't like it.. then oh well.. her loss. Start dating one of her friends imeadiately after.

    echo goctcheez!

    but seriously, its really not that bad even thoug it seems it is. Did you talk to the girl since the note...maybe she is really not that great if she talks to everyone about everything.

    I already stated she had canshuttheirdamnmouth syndrom right? Well EVERY girl at my school has it. So if I ditch the girls who can shut up, I might as well go homosexual. I haven't talked to her since then, but I have recieved some interesting emails from people I know.

    Oh and it would be impossible to date one of her friends. See she is one of those everyone at the school thinks she is awsome girls who just happens to talk to normal me.

    Woe is not thou: The best way to spin this situation is that you are a god among mortals and that you, being the awesome deity that you are, had, in a drunken stupor, taken pitty on the normal creatures around you and had even shown affection towards a particular female of them. When you return to school tomorrow, inform the plebs around you that the fancies of the gods are not their concern. Then, ask the girl whom you have chosen how it feels to have fallen in favor of one of the supreme beings.

    Okay, maybe you shouldn't do this, but you can think it in order to deflect the arrows that will surely be flung in the general direction of your ego.

    Anyway, a sense of proportion, coming from wisdom and age, will doubtless prove to you that you have had a good day, relative to the days of the majority of people in the world today.

    Remember: Pain is your bodies' way of reminding you that you are still alive

    And I probably would be missing highschool if I actually had taken the time to show up
