Gethin swallowed, leaning against a tree. He didn't have that much more school to get through, and his professors were really loving words like "graduation" and "careers" and "job prospects". He wasn't ready for that at all. He had just spent his semester cruising through with minimal effort, he wasn't ready to be an adult out in the world. For all he had been waiting to finally graduate and be done with school forever, now that it was just around the corner, he wasn't ready at all.
He had skipped whatever class he was supposed to have in favour of going out on the grounds, wandering around aimlessly. Maybe if he skipped enough classes, he would get held back and have another year to figure out what he wanted to do with his life. Maybe he would have the chance to come up with a more concrete plan than "move away from home and do stuff". Then again, he wanted so badly to be done with school. It was all so confusing.
Gethin groaned out loud, jerking his head back, hitting his head against the bark.
