IT'S GOING TO TAKE ME YEARS TO LEARN TO DRIVE.
They're wasting their own bloody money as well, having picked the most expensive instructor in the history of expensive driving instructors.
Really, they're just idiots. And the 'building up trust' my instructor suggests happening is just.. never going to happen, meaning I'm just.. never going to learn to drive.. S'just bloody retarded.
Grr. Subject change now.
Was Rhys and I's 2 year anniversary type thing yesterday :). This is good. I love him. We went to Cardiff. I drew him this picture.
It is not very good, I didn't finish it as well as I'd liked to and should have spent more time on it. I think he liked it anyways, hard to tell :P.
On another note, it's apparently official that Danielle, Caitlin, Catherine and I have lost Laura and Lydia as friends.
Basically, I left Monmouth Comp to do Media Studies at Caldicot. Upon leaving, a lot of new peoples arrived at Monmouth Comp, including the likes of Fai-ahem-Felix. Felix is a long term dope head who is now, apparently, becoming a doped up crack head. All I knew of this person was that they befriended Laura and Lydia and that they were a 'bit dodgey'. ('Cherylish', I believe was the term). Then it is discovered that Laura had confided in Caitlin the fact she had started smoking weed with Felix. This had severely shocked and distressed Caitlin and Danielle, to put it lightly. Laura then gets told the extent to which this had shocked and distressed Caitlin and Danielle. See, would it be a fair suggestion that perhaps if you'd found out you'd severely shocked and distressed your friends by smoking an illegal drug that you'd reconsider your actions, or at the very least apologise and do anything within your conscious power to put it right? That is, if you cared about your friends mental (and physical) state. This seemed like a fair suggestion to me, but really couldn't be any different from what actually happened. Laura effectively did nothing. It was left for us to bring up the topic of conversation, was left for us to do any form of confrontation. Now I believe that Laura was naive enough to really not see smoking weed as a big deal at all, infact about as shocking as if we were to find out she'd been drinking a large amount of coffee, or something. But the fact she did nothing AT ALL to show that she regretted her actions, regretted upsetting her friends so much, regretted anything.. this just gave off the impression she didn't really care. When attempts at in-person confrontations were made, all that proceeded to happen was Felix turning up and butting in, being generally quite rude and blatently controlling. He spoke for Laura, I heard. My natural assumption was that he was just controlling L+L, attempting to turn them against us, because it was out of character for Laura not to do anything about hurting her friends.
We decided, after a month of upset, worry, severe stress and not having the two Ls around, that we'd just lay it to rest and not worry about it unless it just became a lot worse. We decided we'd really just like our friends back, despite all that had gone on. My birthday came and went, then Laura's birthday appeared. Danielle made her a cake in an attempt to say 'we miss you :( friends again plz?'. Nothing changed.. Laura continued to go off with Lydia and Felix (and Liam..? o.O) and never once made an attempt to see Danielle, Catherine and Caitlin at school. This, we felt, was a bit like a slap around the face. We decided to confront her via WLM, ask what was going on. When the cake-gesture was mentioned, she just repeated 'Thank you for my cake =]', the repetition seemed a tad sarcastic. We basically had another one of the conversations we'd had back in March/April. Her closing statement was:
|(23:35) [[ Laaaaura ]]:||Things won't be the same, do you think i liked being told it was like i didn't care and everything?|
For me, at least, this is another big slap around the face, with a little bit of headdesk thrown in.
And this is where we are.
The really disturbing thing for me is that I haven't seen Laura since the beginning of March before we even knew about the weed. I think this enables me to shift the blame quite nicely on to the person I have still never met, the person who supplies/supplied Laura with the weed, the person who was just bloody rude to Danielle and Caitlin when they showed Laura their anxiety and concern. Yeah, it's really just making him out to be a bit of a twat, isn't it.
The fact I haven't seen Laura since this all happened means I haven't witnessed any change in her. To me, she is still Laura, and I find it hard to believe Laura would say any of the things she's said or do any of the things she's done. It also means I'm the one who is going to find it the most difficult and unbearable to move on.
I don't know what to say on the subject at the moment and where my mind stands. I don't think Laura's really thinking anything through, I think she's taking the quick easy hot-guy option out. It's just really difficult to accept the fact that included in the quick easy hot-guy option out is forgetting our existance.
I really hope no one minds me posting this story up, but I don't see any reason to beat about the bush, and I find typing it up makes it vaguely clearer in my mind.
I'll delete anything if you do so desire.
Just needed to say it.
I'll put some pictures up in another post.
