Sample text:

Brennan splashed water on his face to hide the redness under his eyes. Even though this was supposed to be his best day according to his plan, he still had doubts. After all, everything he did always seemed to crash and burn. Once he returned to the classroom, he heaved a big sigh and unzipped his jacket. What a day. What a shitty day. With everyone in a zombie-like state in front of their computers, no one paid any attention to him, but maybe that was for the best. His leg was shaking as he glanced at the clock. Fortunately, the pointless drama that plagued this place wouldn’t matter to him anymore, not after today. He took note of everyone around him. He locked eyes with a girl sitting to his left. Erica? Lauren? It didn’t matter.
