Well, just like with weed, that's not going to happen because I admittedly enjoy it too much. My school's actually pretty damn awesome. Last year our end-of-year-party-day-type-thing was actually Pokemon-themed. And this is a high school. And everyone LOVED IT.
School's like a weed. It makes you totally wasted and causes you to see spots. Oh wait, wrong kind of weed. I meant to say that it never seems to go away. The whole actually-being-active-on-PC thing suffers because of that.
If it puts your mind at ease, you're not missing out on the rest of the story because the rest of the story simply doesn't exist. I had an idea for that one scene, and the characters just seemed to grow around that. I don't know anything else about their journey thus far, the medical condition, or even whether Jason ends up dying or not. I don't think I'm going to decide any of those things, either, because I honestly can't picture that scene doing anything but standing on its own.
Cool, cool. I too have a summer job...beats the fudge out of me every time I work, but the money's not bad. What is bad is that it's all going into paying for my education rather than lining my pockets.
