Pop some popcorn and put on your jammies, because this is going to be long.

Ok, so here I am, 17 years old, and I don't really understand what's going on. You tell me if I am a jerk, or if I am depressed, (or anything that might pop into your head) after reading what I've written below. I wake up in the morning, not looking forward to the day ahead. Because I know that it is going to be miserable. It is the same thing, day after day after day. I eat breakfast, get in the car so my mom can drive me to school, and wait FOREVER for my sister to come out of the house so that we can leave. I get to school, and I hang out with my friends while there is a little bit of time before classes start. I go through my day feeling retarded and alone, admiring girls from a distance, and getting decent grades. I try to be funny to the people that I talk to, and sometimes they laugh, but sometimes not. can't win em all, but yeah... Continuing, I eat my lunch with few friends (rest are in different lunches) and then I take one more class and the day is over. I walk around the school with my best buddy, and we look for pocket change that anyone may have dropped (one day we found 7 cents, WOO-HOO!). Then after that, my mom picks my sister and I up from school, and they always need to run errands (not quick ones either). When I finally get home, I just get on this here computer and either play solitare, check my many email addresses, look on craigslist, or give advice here on FunAdvice. Occaisionaly I will go to a school dance, which is kind of lame because no one will go to them. I can't help but be a jerk to anyone who is acting passionate about something; like the DJ. He'll say into the mic "How we all doin tonight?" And I'll yell something like "I'm doing sitty" Or "Just fcking dandy". I know it isn't nice, but I can't help it. Sometimes people make me really sick with their enthusiasm, and you may get sick of it too, but it doesn't take much at all for me to just go "Auuuggghhh..." Whenever I hear someone yelling passionately about... like a school sporting event. (I stay away from the cheerleaders). After looking at things on craigslist, usually I find a nice car or truck that I wouldn't mind driving (I like boring things, not neccesarily sportscars) and I mention them to my mom. My mom always says something like "We'll get your license soon". Really? YOU'VE BEEN SAYING THAT FOR THE LAST YEAR AND A HALF! WHAT'S GOING TO MAKE ME BELIEVE YOU NOW? I am sick of it. I have the money for the insurance, I know how to drive, I am very responsible with never having had a drink or a smoke, line, needle, etc. I passed drivers ed with flying colors,and I'm still nowhere. My mom tells me to get a job (even before the economy crapped out), but if I can't GET there, how am I supposed to do the work? This town is a hilly area, ridable by bike but dangerous as hell. And any bike I've got always has something breaking on it, so they are unreliable. Like I've said I've got money for insurance, but I don't want to buy a new bicycle if all its going to do is become a paice of junk. I get teased because I don't drive. I'll add more as advice comes in. Thanks... P.S. THIS IS NOT A SOB STORY IT IS A DAY TO DAY THING THAT I AM VERY SICK OF. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I'm in a rural area too. VERY rural.
