    wow this...hit really hard. you did a great job at conveying how frustrating the “because” is and painting a good picture at what’s trapping you with your questions. interestingly, your questions actually gave me questions of my own. anyways great job! ^-^ ps how did you think ap calc went?

    I feel this. My mom mostly does it to me. "Because" used in this context is really hard to hear, or even read about. It makes you feel so much lesser, like how you portrayed in this piece. Amazing job!
