On Tuesday I turned 17. I tried my best to enjoy my birthday, but I still continued to think "if only I didn't have to go through this, my day would've been perfect." My friends and family tried their best to make this day special for me, and I thank them so much.
School has been so tough for me. I can't concentrate in class and I am missing so much homework since I am so preoccupied in my skin. My mom and I decided to set up an appointment with my guidance counselor on Wednesday to talk about what should I do about school. I can't wait because honestly, I'm completely fed up with everything. I know that if this keeps up, my grades are going to drop by a lot. I used to be a 90+ student, but the way things are looking now, I'd be lucky to get an 80 on my report card. Ugh.
