Two part time jobs. Full Time school. And raising kids.

I’m a senior in high school and I have a job, I’m starting to actually get my life together. Before it falls apart even. I don’t want to be like all of the adults I know. Scrambling to make ends meet, missing appointments, being late. No. That is definitely not going to be me. I’m going to be picking up another job so I’ll have a total of two pay checks coming in every two weeks. I’ve applied to several colleges and have already been accepted into three. I think things, practically speaking, are going quite well. It’s just that, I’ve been in this rift between my mom lately. She is always late, she never does what she says she’s going to and I am sick and tired of it. On top of having two jobs and going to school full time, I’m also basically raising my two younger brothers. But the weird thing about it is that I hardly even care anymore. I’m so used to it by now it’s like second nature. Which I can’t tell whether that’s good or bad. I’m just ready to cut these people out of my life and be on my own. Lord knows I’m ready.
