There are a plethora of things I dislike in life.

People who can't handle my amazing sarcasm, my fossil of a next door neighbor who constantly asks when I'm getting a haircut, clowns or anyone who likes them, and homework, especially summer homework because what kind of sick bastard would do such a thing?

Luckily for me, one of those dislikes is about to be cut off the list because, at the end of the week, I'm graduating.

It is time to leave the high school education system. I'm meant to join the college life where I will waste 4+ years of my life to receive a paper that reminds me of the crippling debt I earned, which will likely lead to severe stress and anxiety that's going to take 10 to 15 years off my life. I don't really care though seeing as living past 60 seems like a hassle and I'm not up to that.

Perhaps I should have taken up smoking in hopes to lessen my likely prolonged life because, seeing as I wish to die young, that means I will live a while, right? That is how the world functions; you get whatever you don't want because god forbid people actually achieve happiness.

On a more serious note, the idea of graduating is one that leaves me feeling a bit numb. Numb in the sense that I have so much on my mind that I can't seem to process all of it at once. Different emotions are going through me at different times for different reasons ranging from something small that I can look over, to something big that makes me lay in bed whimpering over how I'm meant to survive out in the real world.

On the one hand, goodbye high school, all the assholes in it and those stupid "clique's" that are made whether people continue believing in them or not. Goodbye to waking early Monday through Friday to attend a box, a prison cell really, filled with fellow inmates who are as frustrated and annoyed with seeing the same faces as I am. Goodbye high school drama, teachers who claimed"you'll need this for the rest of your life so you better not forget it", and sitting through classes that have basically nothing to do with what anyone actually wants to do in life. Thanks, goodbye, farewell, sweet dreams!

It is nice thinking about leaving such a place, although, my high school experience hasn't really been a bad one. Not to toot my own horn but, I'm a fairly popular guy, getting along with most, going out to have fun on a regular basis with friends and never getting into much trouble.

However, high school is a dangerous place no matter how popular one claims to be. One little slip up and you can hit rock bottom, become the laughing stock of thousands of kids, the fuck up mascot of the school that will take the blame for everything. The thought of leaving all that is relieving because college seems less like a dog eat dog world and more like a, "we're all trying to be adults now so lets at least try to play nice even if on the inside we want to claw each others eyes out". I prefer that even if 9 times out of 10 I'd probably just claw someone's eyes out.

On the other hand, hello depression followed by a series of panic attacks and existential crises after realizing that I'm on the road to becoming an adult. I'll have to do adult things like pay taxes, work, pretend to care when people speak to me as well as doing my laundry more than once a month. Hello sitting through classes that could last up to 3 hours, working on projects for hours, days, weeks, even months because that portfolio I'm building is basically going to be my life for the next 4 years.

Hello to wondering if anyone will ever make more than minimum wage, if it is worth going to school for a degree that doesn't even guarantee a job. Hello to meeting professors who honestly can't give a shit less about me or anyone because they have 101 other students with the same problem so, get over your damn self. Fix your own problems, you are now an adult, oh, and fuck you. Thanks, nice to meet you too, everyone go cry in a corner.
