DON’T YOU

FUCKING DARE

TELL ME THAT SCHOOL ISN’T HARD

I KNOW YOU’RE GROWN UP

I KNOW YOU ARE MY PARENT

I KNOW YOU’VE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH THIS PART OF LIFE

BUT SCHOOL HAS GOTTEN HARDER

AND HARDER

AND HARDER

 AND TEACHERS ARE UNFAIR TO ME AND ASSIGN TOO MUCH

AND THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN I AM TIRED

I CANNOT DO WORK

I CANNOT SUCCEED ON A TEST

I CANNOT FUNCTION

BECAUSE

I

AM

FUCKING

TIRED

OKAY?

1) Eat better. You have a chalkboard; use it. Make menus. Plan meals.
2) Read at least one chapter of a book for fun each day.
3) Go on a drive once a week. Have no particular destination other than a stop for iced tea. Put on music and see where you end up.
4) Listen to a record straight through without doing anything else. Sometimes music needs your full attention.
5) Doodle. Who cares how shitty of an artist you are? Give it a shot. Create.
6) Go to coffee shops. There’s a million in the city. Get out of the house for a while.
7) Ask a friend to go to dinner. Simply as friends and for no particular reason. Pick up the bill.
8) Allow yourself to fall in love. Let things happen. See where it goes. Take the risk.
