This was the first time i have cried since we won
nationals at deca. I didnt cry when i found out about
jake, or julies friend even though everyone around me
was or wanted to. It wasnt like i was bawling my eyes
out but i was IMing with jess and jess and i just started
crying. I guess everything really isnt as bad as ive
made it out to be but im finding that im not really
responsible at all. I blew a ton of money without
realizing it and now its gonna fuck me over. I cant get
myself to get to class on a regular basis...i havent gone
at all this week. I am starting to think that i shouldnt be
this far away from people who will nag me about small
stuff. I cant beleive i just thought that....oh well maybe
its true....or maybe i just need to get the fuck off my ass
and stop being stupid.
this needs to be recorded somewhere that i wont loose

self-inflicted gunshot wound under his chin. The victim
had left his computer on with a note on the screen that
said: 'And the really funny thing is that I'm not really all
that sad right now. I just... don't know/It seems like the
natural thing to do. Y'know? (Are you supposed to put
[a] question mark at the end of a rhetorical question?)'"
At the bottom of the screen, the victim typed, "Life is so
In loving memory of Jacob Barker, a man i loved,
possibly the first but hopefully not the last.
Why is it that the ones we love always end up hurting
us when they hurt themselves.

"christina i alone *i typed that when i meant to hit the
