More Band Drama

Wow.

Notice how Duncan just kinda sidled up to us during this band talk? That is just sooooo Duncan. NEhow, ouch, Becks. The band's good enough, but not good enough for Becky? See, she's never said NEthing like this b4, but I guess she musta been thinkin' it for a while. All this time, I thought we were all really, really into the band an' imagining us goin' on the road together after high school. An' then we'd all be "somebody" some day. And I admit, I've kinda felt like I'm in charge of 4Evah, even tho the lead singer gets the most attention. So that makes it hurt extra, y'know?

Notice how Becks got so worked up she had both hands in fists? Gerald actually jumped back a tiny bit, like he was afraid she'd sock him. If I hadn't been so stunned with what Becks was sayin' I think I woulda laughed at him for that. Scaredy!

Well, as u can tell, there's gonna be more drama, so stay tuned!

    sheesh Y does everyone have to make me out to be such an evil person? all I mean is I am not into being in a band anymore i want to do my own thing. i am sorry i m breaking up the band but i thought my friends would understand an' not want me to keep on doing something i don't want to.

    besides it's not my fault i m a good singer an' i got noticed. i have to try to make something of myself 'cause lord knows my parents are too busy drinking and screwing around to be able 2 send me 2 college. wish i had rich dentist parents like u apes but i don't an' maybe u ought 2 think about what that's like for 1 minute. it's not EZ u know.

    You're in a no-win situation, Becky. People have assigned a role to you, and now everything you do is going to be judged against that. If you stay in the band and try to do your thing despite what they want to do, you'll be labeled a control freak. If you leave, you'll be reviled as an attention junkie.

    This is a crucial stage of your development, a time when you have to find your own identity. And with your parents going through a divorce, you must be especially unsure of your place in society. And if you ask me, April could use some therapy herself to deal with her guilt issues about Farley's death; I think it's given her a martyr complex. Plus, I lived with her sister for four years, off and on, so I know what it's like to have a Patterson try to push you around. Just be true to yourself and it's all good!

    I will have a Ph.D. next year. Right now, though, I have a degree from the "school of hard knocks"!

    Yes, I am, April! We've both learned to keep our issues separate from our relationship. Which is something you need to keep in mind, Becky: as a product of a dysfunctional family, you're predisposed to dyfunctional relationships.

    BTW, April, how is Liz's romantic life lately? I've told her numerous times that she needs to get over her daddy complex and accept guys the way they are, but she just won't listen. She wants guys to put her on a pedestal. Plus, I bet she's still carrying some baggage from Eric. Hopefully she can "check" that baggage at a heliport, if you know what I mean!

    Hey now Candace. Just because you found your "man" doesn't mean the rest of us shouldn't "shop" around and be picky. I want someone who is going to treat me like an equal.

    Save the Ph.Ding for someone who has asked for your psychoanalysis. You "know" I have had things just as hard as you have, just in different ways. Remember who my mother is. Every time I bring a "guy" over something terrible happenes. As soon as he's out of "ear shot" Mom starts picking him apart, and then I look at his "flaws" and I just can't stand it anymore and I have to "ditch" him. It's not my fault "Candace"! It's NOT MY FAULT!!! Oh. Oh. I am sorry for yelling. You're a good friend. I...need....to..go now.
