This too shall pass..
When I was first starting the whole process of finding applying to colleges, I was blessed enough to attend one of the best charter schools in the country, with several great teachers and a CAP Advisor that put so much time and effort into helping us figure out what we were going to do with our futures. I know not everyone is so lucky to have access to the same sort of people or resources, so here’s a long masterpost of many useful links and lots of great information you can use. If you ever want advice or to talk about college, feel free to message me!

Unfinished Thoughts (via eyeslikerhinestones)
My dad just said: at your age you’ll probably wanna try a lot of things. Boys, girls, being a girl, being a boy, being punk or goth or spunky. And im okay with that. As long as you don’t come home and tell me youre a republican
parents who care
A "good week" is a term you use for work, not relationships. If it's been a "good week" in the middle of a never-ending "rough patch," it's actually the honeymoon phase of the abuse cycle. In a healthy relationship, the good times out number the bad. By a lot.
Talking to your partner about the way they hurt you, and asking them to be more considerate of your feelings is not censoring them or being demanding or controlling. If you tell someone they're hurting you, and they refuse to stop, apologize, and fix it, you run and you run far.
Getting them out of your life is certainly easier said than done. But it needs to be done. The relationship can only get worse and you deserve better.
Abuse can be sneaky and denial is strong when we're close to the situation and we're in love and we've never experienced abuse before. Just because you didn't catch on sooner DOES NOT make ANY of it your fault. It's not your fault.
Crying about it does not make you weak.
It's ok to talk about it. Even when you're trying to get them out of your life, it's ok to talk about it a lot. It's healthy to get all those bottled up thoughts and feelings out of your system. You need a good support system and you need to use it.
Focus on self care. Be selfish. Your abuser did a lot of damage. You need to heal as much as possible before jumping into another relationship or anything like that. Take all the time you need to get better.
