if it’s not worth that much it’s certainly not worth that much stress!
Thank you! I have decided that I will do it when I can and turn it in then. The major paper is not for a couple of months so I should put most of my efforts into that instead!
I want to cry over this fucking paper. It is not even worth that much either…
Welp, I was supposed to do a research paper that I thought was due next week. I log on today and NOPE it is fucking due tonight! I have been staring at this damn thing and researching three different possible topics for about three hours now. I got to the point where I was just about to cry and on the verge of hyperventilating because I have not picked out a definitive topic AND have not started on this paper. It is due in two hours. It only has to be 5 pages long, I should be able to do this but every time I look at it my heart and breathing starts to fuck around. I have such a bad time with shit like this. I just had to close everything down. Fuck it I will just turn it in late and take the late grade for it. This is not worth me getting worked up over. I fucking can’t stand this.
Suddenly her mom’s silence matched Jackie’s own. “Oh, my God,” she murmured in disbelief. “Are you gay?”
"Yeah," Jackie forced herself to say.
After what felt like an eternity, her mom finally responded. “I don’t know what we could have done for God to have given us a fag as a child,” she said before hanging up.
She got a call from her older brother. “He said, ‘Mom and Dad don’t want to talk to you, but I’m supposed to tell you what’s going to happen,’” Jackie recalls. “And he’s like, ‘All your cards are going to be shut off, and Mom and Dad want you to take the car and drop it off at this specific location. Your phone’s going to last for this much longer. They don’t want you coming to the house, and you’re not to contact them. You’re not going to get any money from them. Nothing. And if you don’t return the car, they’re going to report it stolen.’ And I’m just bawling. I hung up on him because I couldn’t handle it.” Her brother was so firm, so matter-of-fact, it was as if they already weren’t family.
