Growing up is hard

i wanted it to be god only knows but the principal said it was too ‘lovey’ even tho everyone was on board then we chose DON’T STOP ME NOW but we werent allowed have that because of the word sex
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS FOREVA
cry hard young grasshopper. school isn’t the best days of your life (thank god) but the last days of it are mighty and heightened and glorious. the bridge stretches before you, the gates are open, you are not the only ones who are golden but everything that lies ahead is golden. next thing you know it’ll be seven years later and you’ll be like woah where the fuck did this adulthood arrive from. enjoy the shining threshold, the tenderness of your friends, the exponential possibilities.
me & stef & helena lay in stef’s pls back garden the day before the leaving cert with books open all around us and the sun on us and we didnt read a word, just laughed. the night before our leaving cert results me and steph went to big tesco near darndale and bought hula hoops and danced on portmarnock beach. i live 5000 miles away from these women now. steph is in a neuroscience phd, hels is an animator. those days are immortal even though we are older and different and apart. so hold on to every last moment you have with these girls, even the ones who are jerks. school is a vast thing to survive, a whale to find oneself in the belly of. the beast has opened it’s mouth. hold hands and walk on the creatures tongue, step over the teeth to outside. you got through it together. you will not remember algebra, much french or economics. you will remember your companions.
enjoy the world, kid. the party is waiting for you.
