Ooh, me me me.

"Why are you afraid to let me fail? Is it because you don't think I can handle it or don't want me to get hurt, or because you think you are responsible for everything in my life? Is the college I go to about the security of my future and happiness, or the letter grade of how well you did?"

Of course, this would have to assume that she would give an honest answer, as well. In hindsight I tried not to load the question too much but it's pretty much spilling over.

Dude, don't worry bout it too much. College is important and a huge opportunity, but ultimately even if you fail everything (which i know you won't), it's not the end of the world. I kinda see how much you apply yourself and work hard by the posts on here where you're always talking 'bout studying, which is a good quality (like seriously, i'm in university but i feel like your environment of over-achieving kids have more work than i do) . Just work hard but keep in mind sometimes fuckups lead to great things so don't be scared to fail too bad... i dunno whatever i'm uber drunk. Just wanted to tell you you're awesome and don t stress too much. peace.

Thanks homie, that's awesome of you. I'm not afraid to fuck up, is the point. I wish my mom wasn't afraid to let me do something risky and possibly fuck up, so I could learn something from experience instead of an worn-out old textbook and a worn-out old teacher. I mean, I'm still in high school, you feel?

but I 'preciate it. and stay hydrated ;)
