It surprised me that three students who were paying $50,000 a year to attend a private university could live like that. I tried to find a spot on the floor that was clean enough to sit on. I would’ve left if I wasn’t so set on getting high.
I seriously considered joining them but decided against it because I would’ve beaten myself up for weeks for taking something nicknamed ‘the date-rape drug.’
The way I see myself, my confidence, is tied directly to how other people see me. More precisely, how successful people see me.
