When it rains, it floods.

Often I've heard the saying that "when it rains, it pours." This week is a testament to that old prophecy of troubles showering down all at once.

I'm not lucky when it comes to vehicles. I got into a wreck... and for the first time it was my fault. I was driving home in 6 o'clock traffic and I looked over my shoulder to see if I could change lanes and when I turned back around, the car in front of me had come to a stop. I slammed on my brakes, but it was too late. For that one second before I crashed, I knew it was coming and everything really did seem to slow down for just that second. Then, with a sound of crumpling metal, the car came to an abrupt stop. I'm not really hurt, other than a sore neck.. and the woman in front of me wasn't injured either. Her car didn't seem to have too much damage, but you never know. I always tend to underestimate the cost of damage to my vehicle.

I don't think dying in a crash would be the most terrible way to die. It is so sudden, so abrupt that you don't even have time to think. Some people say that they see their lives flash before their eyes when they die, but I don't believe it if they die in a car crash. It is too rushed, too sudden. My mind wasn't even on life or death... it was only on trying to press the brakes down as hard as possible.

I wrote down my information for the woman I crashed into and we're going to try to pay her directly rather than go through insurance. If my insurance jumps up too high, I don't know if I'll ever be able to drive again.

One of the more interesting parts of this little story was the drive HOME from the wreck. I didn't want to wait until the police came, for my own selfish reasons. I can't deal with a ticket. I can't. My nerves are shot. Anyways, the front end of my car scarily resembled an accordian and as I drove down the busy road, I could feel every set of eyes following me. I had to sit on one of my feet and crane my neck just to see over the hood of the car. Unsafe, yes... but it couldn't really get any worse.

It was just the icing on the cake after a bad school day. Every school has policies that make no sense, including mine. In order to make sure students make it to class on time, the school has begun a lock-out policty, stating that right when the bell rings, the teacher will lock the door and anyone not in the classroom will have to go down to the office and get a slip letting them go to class and assigning them detention. Well, lucky me, between 1st and 2nd period I have to travel from the third floor out to the trailers. Right when I stepped onto the platform, the bell rung and I thought I was safe, I was practically there. When I reached the top of the platform, the door hadn't even shut after the last person had stepped into the room, but my teacher refused to let me enter.

I went to the office, waited 15 minutes to get my slip, and luckily only got a warning since it was my first time. I don't DO detention. I looked over the slip and it looks pretty photocopiable to me. I'm going to photocopy it and next time I'll have nothing to worry about. I don't LIKE to cheat... but some situations as lame as this one calls for it.

Oh.. and I told you that the troubles just keep coming right? Well yesterday my mom had to drive me to my vocal lessons which are about 30 minutes from home because, well, accordion cars aren't very highway safe. I got out of my lesson and waited for her for about ten minutes. When I called her.. she somehow ended up lost and confused 45 minutes away near the airport. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN? So I sat there and finally an hour after my lessons, my ride arrived. The other bad thing? I was supposed to babysit at 6... and mom didn't even pick me up up until 5:55 and we had a 30 minute drive. I called the family i was babysitting for and they were fine with it.. but i'm not. I was stressed and I felt SO irresponsible.

The one thing I don't want is for adults to consider me an irresponsible teenager. I work hard to try to appear mature and professional. Lately, it hasn't seemed so.

I took school off today. I couldn't keep going. I didn't get home until 11 last night and i still had 2 hours of homework left and I just couldn't do it.
This is what I like to call a nervous breakdown.

I'm getting a massage in a few hours. My neck and shoulders are killing me.
Lets hope this rain lets up and there is some sun.
If anything else happens... i don't know if I can handle it.

I've only been in one very small car collision and that was freaky enough.

WOW! You're not kidding, those are some rough happenings. I've never been in a car accident myself, but I can see what you're saying about not seeing your life flash before your eyes. Its just so fast, there is no time for thought. At least noone was hurt. Remember that, because that is the 'light' in that story.
I remember almost drowning once, I was like 12 or 13 I think. I couldnt (and still can't) swim. But I fell into the deep end of the pool. Never did feel myself hit the bottom, but after what seemed the longest minute or longer, I just couldnt hold my breath any longer. Thats when all of the 'life flashing' started. The fact that you're about to possibly die, is gone. I started thinking about my family, my friends, etc. But, then I felt a hand grab my arm, came up out of the water, coughed out the half gallon of water I had sucked up, and all was okay. Other than the fact that im scared to death in the water now.
Sorry for the rambling....hehehe.
Hope things get better. Nobody will label you irresponsible over one or two issues arrising, so no worries there.
You can handle it, you have yourself together more than most adults.

Glad you're back writing.

My brother died in a car accident in February. It gives me peace to think he doesn't know what happened to him. Although Whitney you shouldnt wish its ok you die that way.

Rough day eh? Try not to let it bother you. There is a quote from the film 'Leon'. Where natalie portman, playing an 11 year old, asks Jon Reno whether life is always this hard? He replies with "it get's harder".

Some days are better than others but you'll be cool. You seem like one mature teenager. It will put you in good stead for the rest of your life.


It's been a while since your last post. Hope all is well.
