EXTRACT: I want to play at Caitlin’s party just to say “Screw You” to everyone who thinks that I don’t have the courage to go on. But I’m struggling. I actually don’t have the courage. I never have. This ‘embarrassing incident’ just makes it worse. I’ve got to do this. This is one of those turning point thingies in your life. I’ve got two choices. I can not play, not even go to the party, slip into a social hole, study hard, get good grades and go to uni yada yada yada, or I can go.
