there are many things i could say.
first of all, those bitches in school are NOT your friends. no matter how much you want to believe they are. Do NOT try to fit in. being yourself is MUCH more important. and that sweater that pisses off the rich girls, that poor lonely ol'you has one JUST like it. wear it more. it looked good on you. you didn't need to throw it out because you felt ashamed of trying to look better. and.. don't let mom do your hair.
