I'm driving a ford windstar. Now I was trying to get my dumb ass friends attention and rolled down the window part way on the passanger side. It had gotten stuck. I've tried pulling it up and trying to un-short it on the drivers side bc on the passanger side the window button is no longer there. So I didn't want to put it all the way down but my dumbass friend kept insisting to put it all the way down. So I did now it won't come out. I don't know what to do and I'm kind of panicky right now for I'm not parked in the best neighborhood.

Hahahahaha! I've been there before, I feel your pain.
So the window rolls down when you use the switch on the drivers side, but it won't go up?
Can you hear anything when you hit the button? Does it sound like the window motor is trying to make the window go up but there's something stopping it, or does nothing happen at all when you push the switch?
What year is the Windstar, maybe I can find a wiring diagram online and give you instructions on how to activate the window motor without the switch being on the passenger side, in case the problem is with the switch on the drivers side.
It could also be the window motor itself... Not a huge deal, it's not that uncommon. Fortunately it's also a relatively inexpensive and easy fix. Do you have anyone you know who works on cars, even as a hobby? Basically it would involve removing the interior door panel to get access to the window motor which is inside the door, and then unplugging the motor and removing two or three bolts that hold it in place.
Auto Zone or O'Reilly or whatever auto parts store chain is in your area will probably have it in stock or be able to get it quickly. Remanufactured will probably cost in the $30-60 range, assuming you bring the old one with you to turn in as a core (they take the old one and rebuild it... if you don't have it out, they'll charge you a "core charge" of $5-20 most likely which you get back after you bring in your old broken one)
