You’re running as fast as you can. Your breath is laboring, heavy in your ears. You can see the graduation “finish line” in the distance, and all you can think is “Almost there. You can make it.

Anger is a very natural emotion. We have all experienced it, and though some people may be more mellow than others, you’re lying if you claim to never get angry.

Back in elementary, it was easy to tell if someone had a crush on you. It was easy because it was the boy who teased you endlessly about being a know-it-all or the girl who threw the four-square ball at your head on purpose.
