people told me slow my road
I'm screaming out fuck that
Imma do just what I want
lookin’ ahead no turnin’ back
if I fall, if I die, know I lived it to the fullest
if I fall, if I die, know I lived and missed some bullets
I'm on the pursuit of happiness and
I know everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good.

I needed a place to say something. I don't really know who to talk about it with.. guidance counselor or just.. whatever. I feel like my parents are going to force me to go to the less-expensive school. I know I should be grateful that I don't have to pay tuition by myself, that I have awesome parents who make a decent living and can afford to put me through school. And, don't get me wrong, I am. Completely. I love them for everything. But the thing is, they don't want to. I feel like they resent me for it.
Can you imagine that guilt trip? Like everyday..? So what do I do. Decide to go to the school that they want me to go to because it's what like a bunch less expensive? Why did I even bother killing myself over my RISD application if they second guess everything about the school and are crazy reluctant to even allow me to consider it. At dinner-yes I still have dinner with my parents every night- my dad says, " You know, when I was your age (about 40 years ago) tuition was the same as what your textbooks will cost." Are you serious? What does he want me to do about it? Not go to college? Not chase dreams?
I just don't want to settle for the perfectly fine liberal arts college or even the state school where my friends will be when I have the opportunity to go somewhere different. I know I'm missing a ton of things here, and I might just be blinded by everything and how it seems as if it all is flying past me but I don't want to look back and think, "What if I had gone there instead and not passed up the chance to pay back debt for the next ten years?"
Next time I write, it won't be so terribly selfish and ranting.
Expect more of our usual in the future. At least from me.

Rain __ Shel Silverstein
I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.
I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said--
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.

7. And lastly, some Emmerson who I am sort-of in love with right now:
Then Beauty is its own excuse for being:
Why thou wert there, O rival of the rose!
I never thought to ask, I never knew:
But, in my simple ignorance, suppose
The self-same Power that brought me there brought you.
