In 2007, dated SOME lame dudes, I lost my virginity, partied too hard, lost all my “friends”, got punched in the face, stalked, kicked out of school, partied too hard again, started a new school,
met my boyfriend, fell in love, and changed my entire life. WELP. Needless to say it was an eventful year.
I don’t know the exact date, but it’s been 10 years since I was expelled from my first high school. Easily the best thing that has ever happened to me. Haha.
(I wasn’t even guilty of the crime but that’s a different story lol)
If I never got kicked out of school, I’d still be hanging out with some shitty people. I would’ve never moved to a new school and meet (met?) better people.
I told myself I wasn’t gonna date immediately, but I ended up dating my boyfriend like a month and half into the school year LMAO.
He showed me there was something more than just “partying” every weekend. I ended up doing “better” (still was lazy lmao) in school and APPLIED FOR COLLEGES.
If I stayed at my old school, I probably wouldn’t have graduated? And if I did I probably would’ve just went to hair school or something. Probably would’ve dropped out.
I forgot how much I loved art until I went to my new school.
If I told pre-expelled me that I would graduate from an art University with a bachelor’s, I wouldn’t have believed a word lmao.
If I didn’t go to art school I wouldn’t have met most of my closest friends! (As much as I half regret art school because loanssss)
Pre-expelled me also wouldn’t believe that I have new friends….WHO ARE ACTUALLY INTO THE SAME NERDY SHIT. 7TH GRADE ME WOULD BE SO PROUD.
I wouldnt believe that I traded in parties and drugs for being obsessed with professional e-sports and cosplaying LMAO.
I also would be shocked that I was able to stay with the same guy for….TEN YEARS and be living with him and having two amazing dogs of our own!
It’s just so crazy. To think that one “bad” thing escalated it all.
I’ve been contemplating on posting a shorter version of this on FB but I’m “friends” with some of the girls that “ruined” my life.
I’d love to thank them, but most of them aren’t really going anywhere and I feel like they’d feel offended or something. (JUST TO BE BLUNT LMAO).
16 year old me:
-Couldnt keep a boyfriend
-Closet nerd because old friends sucked.
