I mean, I am the girl with excellent grades, number one in my school. I play four instruments; I am the president of three clubs, and I play multiple sports. I am everything a mother would wish for in her daughter. But the dark part about this is that nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors. All they see are my "sweet" parents collecting at least a bunch of awards at every award ceremony. Seeing smiles and laughter everywhere sickens me. Parents ask me, "OMG! How do you do this?!" They ask my parents all sorts of things, like how they were able to raise such a "perfect daughter." And there I am fakesmiling all night, having no friend to talk to because my only close friend decided to ditch me for popularity. And then, there are people making fun of me for being a nerd without any social life. I try to be on my best behavior, but no one knows what happened hours ago. I repeat; no one knows!!!!!! --This is not the first time I tried it, nor was it the second time. I opened the white bottle this time and gulped all the contents without water, hoping it would do the job. This time I felt dizzy. 33
