Before School: After being dropped off in the parking lot and making the terrifying walk to the double doors, it began to dawn on me that while these creatures around me would be embracing and kissing and prehaps even crying, I would stand terribly alone and knowing nobody. I was regretting both the decision to come to this new school and being there so early, when mercy came in the form of a friendly Samoan that I’d known for years. Thank goodness for other transfers. I stayed with him for a while until —
Advisory Period: In which I sat beside some other new girl who was really shy and quiet. She was rather lovely though. Also, realized that the son of one of my dad’s friends was in my class. So it wasn’t like I didn’t know anybody.
First Period: Alas, the period that I spent waiting to get a schedule. Thankfully, I ran into even more people from my old school, so I didn’t have to sit quietly by myself like a loser. I think, in total, there were six people that transferred to the same school as me, so yaaaay. Also, I showed up to Spanish I an hour late (because of schedule changes and such) and the class is filled with sophomores and juniors, sooo. That’s something.
Second Period: Was placed next to a girl that went to the Warped Tour last summer, so it wasn’t entirely useless. Also, the teacher is a genius. I have the feeling that everyone’s going to hate him (because he doesn’t allow electronics in his class like other teachers do, and he has an almost-monotone voice, and he has a huuuuuge vocab that most of these people wouldn’t understand) but he’s sooo cool. I should probably mention that he teaches a computer class. Just so ya know.
Lunch: Spent with the girl from my advisory class, and Paige and Ziare (kids from my old school). It was strange, and we weren’t fast enough to get a table, so we were all left standing awkwardly by the stairs, but it was fun nonetheless.
Third Period: Well. Most of it was skipped because I went to the wrong lunch (while Mr. Sessions is a genius, he gave me faulty information about what lunch time I had). So I got to Art Appreciation half an hour late, but the teacher was cool about it so it was all good. (Sarah Beth: I met a taller, more muscular version of Ruvim in Art Appreciation, you’ll be interested to know). Sat by a bunch of kids that I didn’t know. I *think* that I *might* have made a friend there, but I’m not sure.
Fourth Period: The last period of the day was kind of cool. It was personal health, and the lady who teaches it just introduced what she’ll teach (abstinence and sexuality, self esteem, substance abuse, etc), but I got to sit by Nik B. (a kid from the last school I went to) and this really funny brunette girl, so it was cool.
And then I got on the bus and was bored and alone, but it’s all good, because I met a dude with dreadlocks who gets off at my stop.
Anyway, that was my day. They didn’t eat me alive (but they still might, I have periods 5-8 tomorrow) and I’m not dead yet, sooo. We’ll see.
If you don’t hear from me for a couple weeks, it’s either homework or I’m dead.
I love you.
