A Controversial Question

A little over a year ago at our high school, there was a terrible accident that took place in the parking lot.

There was a girl lying on the street as a car backed out (quote from another student about the incident: “You know [her]. She liked laying places.”) and she was literally run over by the car.

It was obviously a serious accident and it required multiple surgeries and many weeks of recovery.

Following the accident, it was touch-and-go for a period in time, and in this time, a Facebook group called “Support [Insert Name Here]” was created. Feeling pressured by my peers, I had to join the group. Because otherwise it would look like I didn’t support her and wanted her to die.

However, now she’s fully recovered and fourteen months have passed. Will I be a bitch if I leave the Facebook group? Will it come up on everybody’s News Feeds with “Elaine Gray has left the group Support [Insert Name Here]”, and what will people think of that? What will [Insert Name Here] think of that?

I guess that being a member of this group isn’t really problematic in anyway…but I feel like it just brings my whole Facebook page down.

This problem has been bothering me everytime I log into Facebook. So, about three (or more) times a day.

Best Wishes,

Elaine

Goodbye Wicked Little Town

Today was graduation rehearsal, and therfore marked the last time that is is necessary for me to be on the Scripps Ranch High School campus.

It’s very surreal to be coming to the end of these four years, and I wish I could say that is was absolute Hell, but to be honest…it wasn’t really. I wasn’t tortured, I didn’t have any issues with grades and for the most part, everything was pretty mellow with no big upsets or drama. Well, maybe a little drama. But not enough to make me jump off the second story or anything.

To sum up high school, it was pretty uneventful. I’ve heard too many times that “high school is the best four years of your life” but I know for a fact that that’s not true.

Senior year was obviously the best, though. I wish that I had the friends that I have now all through high school. And I wish that I hadn’t wasted time with people who I didn’t really like, or shoudn’t have really liked. I finally found a group of people (and a group! Not just Josh!) that I totally love being with…and now it’s time to leave. But I guess that that’s what the end of high school is about, too. Getting ready to be independent.

It’s hard to say if I’ll ever be close to the people again. We’re all going to such different places…New York, Savannah, Boston, Los Angeles, D.C….the list goes on and on. But I really hope that we’ll be able to keep in touch and at least check in with each other about what’s going on and visit when we can. To be honest, I’m pretty muhfuckin scared to move to Savannah, Georgia all myself. But at the same time, I feel ready. Because Scripps Ranch ain’t the spot. And I’m ready to go on to bigger and better things.

Goodbye, Scripps Ranch High School. Thanks for…thanks for what? Thanks for giving me the chance to meet some good people. Thanks for the diploma. And thanks for being over.
