at school: it feels like there is a leech on my heart. i didn't notice it until it was gone. i never want it to come back.
at home: people are everywhere and they want to see me. i have friends and privacy. i have my life.
i miss my dad. he is alone all the time except when he sees me or my brother. we are his whole family and friends. i wish that i appreciated him more, because it is amazing to me suddenly that dads love their kids and stay with them after the divorce and my dad loves me so much that it barely seems real.
