While waiting for my “Defend the Castle” game to finish (DAMN YOU WENDY!) I did a search on google for “Ben Simpson”. I was shocked to see this result in particular:
” Myra Mendoza and Ben Simpson were friends in high school. I haven’t seen either of them in many years. Ben always seemed to be burning inside, some shame or anger was consuming him. His drive fueled by the need to quench that flame, which sometimes only made the flames grow all the more. I’d often wondered what Ben would be like without that fire. He was also very bright, and for a time had lived a sheltered life though even then something was burning. He fell rapidly during our senior year. ”
I am angry a lot, and it does consume me from time to time. I let that feeling of anger give me energy for some of the fights I put myself through day to day. I would probably take the simple path without that drive, just so this author knows. I would hope people consider me “very bright” even though I suppose I have had a sheltered life. And to top off this stunning re-enactement, I did start slipping really bad Senior year of high school because I didn’t care about grades anymore.
Must be a trend with “Ben Simpson”‘s around the world. Do a search for yourself – the results might surprise you.
