I have officially been accepted to the University of St. Thomas, and will be transferring there next semester.
If you ask how I am doing on any given day, the best answer I can give you is that I am miserable at best. I feel like I have had a giant boulder taken off of my chest.
Cheers to a new beginning.

Serve topped with peanut butter, honey, pecans and dates.
"They say that you’re supposed to stand up to bullies, but there’s not much you can do when the whole class is like that."
“Why do they make fun of you?”
“Let’s see. My weight, obviously. The fact that I read for fun. Mostly sci-fi and fantasy. I watch Nova. I don’t like sports. You know those loud, obnoxious kids you see hanging out in groups, screaming at people? That’s my whole school.”
“So what do they do to you?”
“Just yell at me and throw stuff at me. But I am proud of one thing. Most kids who get picked on completely spaz out at some point, and get violent. That hasn’t happened to me yet.”
