I'm 18 and about to graduate from hs. I'm extremely stressed out right now. I'm in a terrible foster care system that provides me with little support and have terrible representation from my case worker. any foster care and court work, I have to fill out myself because she's too lazy to do so and because she doesn't feel like driving out to my house in the county next door even though she placed me here. I have to constantly go to meetings (I have a second agency), retell my story to many people since I'm signing out in September for college. So this leads into my current school life. I'm aware that I've surpassed many foster kids, especially runaways. I got left back and now I'm graduating in 3 years as a normal senior, attended night school for 1.5 years, taught myself and got credit for 8 subjects, attend StonyBrook University on the weekends, currently teaching myself AP calculus BC, AP statistics, and Spanish for credit, currently studying Russian on the side, have a 97.21 GPA and am ranked 21 out of 1,100 seniors. I constantly travel by bus/train to get to colleges. I have applied to about 30 colleges including Harvard, cornell, princeton, etc. and plan on applying to more. *need as much money as I can for college. I need to take out a loan for an apartment to live in when school is out. As a foster kid, I have no "credit" and a lot of loan companies reject foster kids for that. I want as many options possible and highest bidder gets me, haha.* I have to constantly email colleges to ask them to take off parent tax returns and find alternate methods to send sats, mail transcripts. And so much more. I have a boyfriend who doesn't mind my situation, lucky me. I call him sometimes to vent because I'm stressed. Everytime, he kind of hints that he would like to continue playing his game or writing and I would stop and let him go. This time, I was overwhelmed and he said that he would like his solitude because he was reading. I just got pissed off and said bye.

OMG please please listen to me.. . focus on you.. focus on college.. let that guy go... if he is not on your team you have no time for people who bring you down. This is critical to your future and you seem to have a really good head on your shoulders... I see so many fuck up their futures over some guy or girl and years later they are at the Waffle House telling customers about this one time they thought they had such a great guy or girl... FOCUS!1
