Alaina opted out of Homecoming. The next day she told me a third of the kids were kicked out for drugs. Either selling or taking.

I am all for her never going to a school dance at all forever.

She is emotionally a late bloomer ( but early physically…an interesting dynamic) and forever annoyed with her friend’s relationship dramas.

She told me last week, “I don’t want a boyfriend that goes to my school. I don’t wanna have to look good.”

Laughed my ass off.

The girl is 15. She’s gorgeous. She couldn’t look not good if she tried.

What is it high school girls are supposed to look like these days?

Some days mine looks like this:

But mostly she’s adorable.

She’s 100% teenager and I have almost no idea what to do with her 98% of the time.

Also, she totally swears.


I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
