Story of My Life

My name's Lorena.
I'm 16 years old.
This is the Story of My Life.


5. The High School Years

So how's everyone doing so far? It's a lot, I know, and this is the watered down version...

They say high school is supposed to be the best years of your life. Honestly it's a roller coaster.

The summer between 8th grade and freshman year was interesting. I went to a horse back riding camp that was at the same campground cancer camp was held. It was bitter sweet. I also went to Cancun for the second time that year.

Freshman year was both the best and worst year of my life. It was a long and bumpy road, I fell down and I still have all the bruises. In October, I got my first kiss at the Homecoming dance. Two days later, the guy asked me out. I was so happy. It was really amazing he was so sweet. But then, things turned dark. He started to get controlling and I wasn't allowed to do anything. He hurt me a lot and I was done. I broke up with him December 29th, four days after our 2 month anniversary. The last two weeks of our relationship were the worst. He turned to drugs because I was grounded and he started getting suicidal on me and I couldn't handle it. I was lucky to get out when I did.

I don't want to get in to anymore detail, if you want to know more, follow me on twitter (@lorenuhhhh) and I'll follow you back, DM me with questions. or KIK me (itssLorennaa) and I'll answer you and explain anything.

The rest of freshman year was long. My best friend tried to kill herself. I hurt myself, a lot, and overall I just wasn't happy. I started to get depressed and have Anxiety over every little thing.

The summer between 9th and 10th was hands down the best summer of my life. I went to NYLC, National Young Leader's Conference, and had the best time of my life. I was finally happy again. I met a new guy, we hooked up (we just kissed, nothing more) and were together for the rest of July. He went to another camp in August and when he came back, everything was different. We sorta ended things before he left and gave up on trying to see each other. I mean he was pretty close to me, he lives in Jersey. But aside from that, everyone else was amazing and I still keep in touch with most of them. I'm actually seeing my one roommate in April when I go to Florida. 

10th grade started out bad and was a bumpy road. I saw my ex a lot and he got a new girlfriend who is now my best friend. They both hated me and it was just bad. I was still suffering from the Anxiety he had caused me the previous year. In February, on Valentine's Day to be exact, I got a new boyfriend. I realized I didn't like him like I thought and ended things a month later, the day after our one month anniversary. In May, I started to have feelings for a guy in my Bio class.

The summer after 10th, this past summer, was amazing too. I hung out a lot with the guy I liked and he would come to my house and surprise me. I really thought he liked me too. I also went to Cancun with my cousins, which I don't remember much of because I went clubbing and I was sick for half the week. But it was still amazing. On July 5th, I also saw One Direction and in August I drag my mom to This Is Us....

Which brings us to now. November of 11th grade. Junior year. It's fine, I guess. I haven't kissed a boy since the summer between 9th and 10th grade... I write every single day and focus a lot on my music. I go to concerts on a regular basis too...
