So I just turned 18 this year and I currently live in the “sunshine state”. Most of my friends think that my life is so amazing, but in reality it kinda sucks….. Before I moved to the sunshine state i lived in the “mitten” aka Michigan, my mom got remarried and packed up and moved to Florida. My stepdad aka Hades, has a very nice bank account, so we live in a gated community. Along with living in a gated community, we have 4 luxury cars ( I don’t get to drive any 😦 of them ).
When I first moved here I didn’t know anybody! I was going to the 11th grade and I was terrified! My school was HUGE way bigger than the ones i was use to. My first day was a mess, I didn’t have a seat on the bus, I got lost, and I tripped UP the stairs. Eventually I made friends, unfortunately they were drug dealers…(I know what you’re thinking, RUNNN!) but i didn’t they were my only friends, so i stuck around for a bit, until i came to my senses. Thank God for Taco Bell, literally. I got hired there and i soon wasn’t able to hangout with the dealers anymore and we eventually just drifted apart. It was probably for the best. Honestly i thought they were gonna come kill me like in scary movie but its all good. In the middle of my junior year i met J, she was the first girl i met who was the same age as me because all my friends were underclassmen. I guess my babyface made it look like i was supposed to be with the freshman class. *shrugs*. Anyway she was just amazing i WAS totally grateful for her. We were the best of friends and when senior year started we met B and the other J, we’ll call her “Jay”. They both just moved here from different states, and it didn’t take long for the four of us to become a clique. We were inseparable, until after graduation. Jay and J always seemed to butt heads occasionally. They both don’t hold their “V” cards anymore and always argue about it. They barely talked this Summer, and Jay told me recently that she doesn’t want to be J friend anymore because she not a Christian and doesn’t want to hangout with non Christian people. I smell BS! I think that’s a lie just to not be her friend anymore, and Jay inst necessarily portray the perfect Christian either! She walks around likes shes holier than thou sometimes, if you know what i mean. So currently all four of us are attending the same college in September and i don’t know how that’s going to work out. Quite frankly that leaves me and B in the middle, and right now i feel like i have no friends.
My Summer in one word, SUCKY! i don’t have a job so i was housebound all Summer. 1/2 of my bffs from Michigan came to visit me but that’s about it. I did however meet Hector, my short and tragic summer romance. We met at the beach and he was super nice, he went to local high school so we had mutual friends. We texted each other every day and our growing friendship became a romance. He came to see me while i was hanging out with my friends a couple times. I quickly noticed that he would become very awkward, almost creepy awkward. Hes senior in high school this year, so i told him that we should probably end it because i’d be too busy with college and work to see him regularly. He wasn’t happy at first but eventually we ended it civilly. We talk every “here and there” now. He was my 3rd kiss ever!
Currently, I’m trying to get my life back together with Mr. J Christ. I did a little drinking + smoking this Summer out of boredom, a bit of depression, and a dab of peer pressure. Thankfully I’ve stopped all of that and i’m on to better things! Thank God for repentance!
