6 Impossible Things!

1. Stop self-harm... and suicides.

Technically, I know I can't reach out to many people at this age. But when I'm older I want to try help them. "Suicide does not end the chances of life getting worse, it eliminates the chances of it ever getting better." - Alex Gaskarth. I want to let people know that, because I honestly think that they could do so much more with their life, even if it may not seem like it right now. I know I may not be able to save millions of people, purely because I don't know what's going on with them at the moment, but just if I could prevent one or two life being lost? That would be a huge thing for me.

Also, I don't just want to prevent suicide. I want to prevent self harm as well. It's going to be a tough job, but as I said, if I can stop one or two people from doing it, that would be huge. Self harm is like a escape for many people - their only escape - and I want them to feel that there are others out there. From "experience.." things like going out for a walk, using pen instead of a razor and listening to music doesn't necessarily help for long. It can work for the first few times, but after that it gets old. I want to help people overcome the need to self harm in any sort of way.

I know how hard it would be for people to hear "it gets better", because after the first few times of hearing that, the positive effect wears off. I want to help people overcome those things and be happy again. :)

2. Stand up to certain people.

Okay so this sounds kinda small, but for me it's not. These people aren't my age so it's harder for me to tell them to stop. I just feel that once I do that, I've accomplished something good, because these people could be picking on others.

It's going to be hard to, because
1) I live with one.
2) My mum won't ditch one.
3) One may be my mum.
4) One if the teacher of my favorite subject.


A lot of the time I have to stay silent about it and not let them get to me, but the act is starting to wear through and I feel the need to do something about it.

3. Get a job.

Admittedly, I am so sick of hearing my mum ramble on about child support and how they don't pay enough. Getting a job will mean:
1) I have more funds for myself
-and-
2) I may give some of those funds to Mum.

Also, then I will seem to have more responsibility in my mums eyes, and she might actually start paying attention to me.

Plus, people will stop calling me lazy, right?

4. Stop being so depressed all the time.

It may not seem like it, mainly because I'm a loud and sarcastic idiot with no common sense, but I actually seem to get sad quite a lot, mainly at home, or after I have class with that one teacher I hate with a burning passion (not you Miss). :)


DON'T SEND ME TO THE COUNSELOR I HATE HER.


Anyway, I want to stop being so depressed or dark because I don't want to drag down people around or create tension at home.

5. Have a somewhat career in performing arts.

Most people want to be famous. To me, I don't mind whether I'm not famous. Sure, it would be great but all I want to do is perform, either acting, singing or dancing. I want to get in UPA first, then I'll see where I go form college onward.

Even if I don't get very far, I want to still be able to join small acting groups in whatever city I end up living in (NOT CANBERRA).

6. Convince my mother I don't care about religion.

Not to be rude, but I don't give a :) about religion, it's all a bunch of non-existent things to me. Plus, religion can cause so much bad things to happen.

My mum won't stop pressuring me to come to Church with her and I really don't want to. I've had to get her away so much to having to say that I'm a Satanist. HAHAH no.

It's not like I don't respect for it, it's just I don't feel the need to have a religion.

Did I mention I was baptized as a Catholic? :(

But seriously, she won't stop pestering me. I need her to get through her head that I don't really care and no, I don't want to go to Church.
