jeff lived a rather lonely life. all throughout his childhood and his high school career, he never did receive much support from his parents or from the kids at school. at the age 14, he began experiencing haunting thoughts so he turned to his only resource, alcohol, to help get away from everything. his homosexuality was developing at the time as well, and his hellish thoughts got merged with that. often times, he would go into the woods behind his house and beat trees with sticks to help relieve the stress he got from his school life, home life, and his thoughts.
