I dont know what the hell to do. i loved that guitar and now it has a snap going down the neck right next to the headstock because i'm dumb as ****. when i dropped it the neck hit the wooden edge of my bed. to further **** things up i tried superglueing it back together(it was in two pieces) but the glue expanded a bit as it dried on one side, causing buzz when i tried to play. my dad doesn't know about the break yet but he's going to pissed when he finds out. I have a guitar lesson at 4:30 tomorrow that there's no way of getting out of. please pit, give me your noble guidance.

Im sorry, but Superglue isnt gonna do anything. You need a high powered industrial strength woodglue, or maybe an epoxy, if you wanna do it yourself.
This happened to my LP a while ago. We eventually got money from american express to buy a new one (because the old one broke 4 days after i bought it). It would have costed like 200 bucks wherever we took it, and would have taken 3 weeks or more, so we fixed it ourselves. We put woodglue on both parts of the neck (the more surface area there is, the better), clamped it, and let it dry for 24 hours. Then we put wood filler in to replace the lost finishing, and then we applied a bunch of polish. Basically, its gonna take a few weeks no matter how you look at it.

Get some Titebond original and some clamps. If its already snapped than you should sand it a little bit to give it something to stick to, apply Titebond glue, than clamp it together.

New neck time! Take it to a shop. Also, for your lesson, just borrow one of you teacher's guitars, I'm sure he has more than one.
