Not to be ghall D no offense lol) here but I just need to get this out of my system. Basically I've lived in the same town since kindergarden, and I am absolutely miserable here. I am a Junior in high school. I know I only have roughly a year and a half left of high school but I honestly can't take it. I am completely unmotivated. I still get good grades but I don't think I am working to my potential. My best friend has decided to go to private school in the winter to focus on his jr. olympic skiing career. My other friend has decided that he is switching to a private school and will be attending a new school next week. I have other friends but they are not close as the two that are leaving. Everyday I just feel like everything blurs by me and I am not satisfied with my life at all when I know I should be. I know this probably won't even help my problem but I just feel like I need to get away from this town. I don't know why I live in CT when my parents work in MA Here are some of my logical justifications: - I hate it here - I never feel happy (Depression I guess) - I am tired of my friends (as bad as that sounds) - I am not feeling motivated and am not enjoying school - My mom works 45 min away in massachusetts - My dad works 1.5hrs away in massachusetts (1.5hrs in good traffic) - Property taxes will be significantly lower outside of this town - Real estate in general will cost less in Mass in the area where we would move - Sales tax is lower in Mass - My sister attends a university in Mass - There is a quaint town similar to my current one between the two cities where my parents work- 30 min commute to each city, with a great school system - My mom doesn't like our house because its "too big" and "too much to clean", which is true. We don't need a 4,000sq ft house for 4 people, 3 once my sister graduates this spring. - My dads company would cover moving costs - I am looking at many schools in Massachusetts - My dad spends like $5000 between gas and oil commuting to work I know I am probably just sounding selfish and sorry for myself, but I just feel like I can't stand it here. I cannot even describe it. And really my parents should consider moving not just because its economically logical, but my dad works himself to death and then has to make a huge commute. Over the past 5 years he's worked there I have noticed a huge difference in his personality, he is just always tired now and doesn't have time to do things that he once liked to do. I feel even if I talk to my parents they will just ignore me as they always do. They never seem very understanding.
