(26 May 2013 - 07:11 AM)Some nights I lock myself in my room in order to read silently, and I do read my book, but nothing stays and I forget everything I read. So recently I have been making lists, and I make my teachers stay with me after school in order to actually pay attention to do my work. They constantly have to breath down my neck in order to get shit done. I am going on 18, I should be past that stage of my life, and it worries me.
