I never listened to her because she dropped out of school in the eighth grade. It was the first month of school and I went for the first two weeks, then took a week off because I was so tired of going. It was my decision to stay away from school because I was over eighteen.
My mom told me “You are going to finish school or I am going to kick you out the house.”

Both of my parents told me after it was all over, that they believe in me, and that they know I can finish college and make good grades if I put my mind to it.

    I graduated middle school and of course tears were shed and hearts were broken by the news that I would not be seeing them the next school year. I thought that the summer break leading up to high school would be horrible considering my Mom was making me go to this , which in my opinion was, a dumb summer program so I could, in my Mom’s words “ make friends”. I was totally and utterly furious with my Mom and resented her for sending me to the high school I barely spoke to her when she picked me up and dropped me…

    High School Graduation Most people rejoice when they graduate because they finished their high schools. Also, people will consider and treat them as adults, but I was not one of them.

After I graduated, I did not know what to do or where to go and that was because the last year in high school, I applied to the wrong university, and I could not decide which major I wanted.…

    What did I say, a small town girl would never make it to a show like that. My chances were slim and so were the chances of me and my parents getting along, I kinda just bombed my Math, Science, and Geography test. With my luck I got at least D- or higher, but I’m still getting grounded. I hate school I honestly don 't know why I go, I don 't fit in and I fail at everything.
