i am so fucking happy right now. for the past year i've been wanting to graduate a year early from high school because of my heart disease and mental illness. i thought it would be a better choice for me in the long run and it is in my opinion. both of my illnesses are not the only reason why i want to graduate early, but they're the main ones. i have always been excited to get my life started ever since i was young. anyway, enough of the rant. today i had a meeting with my guidance counselor and she told me i was capable of graduating a year early. when i heard that my heart dropped (in a good way) because i felt relieved. those words were the words i was waiting to hear all year and it made me emotional. after that she told me i needed to write an essay on why i was wanting to graduate early and to apply to colleges near me hoping to get accepted and if i do get accepted i need to give her the copy saying i was accepted. when that's all said and done she'll send it off then i'll be going into summer school to get the one class i need out the way for 11th grade. i'm adding another class that i want to get out the way, but it's for my senior year. i know this decision may be stressful when i get to it... i just know that this will all be worth in the end. sorry for this long ass caption i just needed to share this moment with you all.
