I think August 5 is too early, but it's not like i can change anything. so yep. schooooollllllll
i'm going back to the same school i went to last year, by the way. there was a lot of debate of if i was actually going back, and it looks like i am. i hope that it works out.
i guess i shouldn't be so picky. its just hard, after being in such a strange schooling situation, to really adjust. if you didn't know, i went to a very... hard core? rigorous? demanding? school from pre-k to third grade, then went back in 8th grade. Even when I was homeschooled (4-7 and 9th), my family kept the same standard of academic excellence while I was homeschooled.
Last year TC (the school i go to now) wasn't exactly... level with my previous standards. Students could not hand in homework and get away with it.
(I wrote all of that a few days before starting back up- didn't have time to post it. here we are at the end of week 2 and, wow, things have changed!)
Well, as I said THINGS. HAVE. CANGED!
And I think I'm probably the only person in the world who can be so excited about something like this. (For a little background, I'm ENTJ...)
Last year, I would get so frustrated because people would not do/turn in their homework. Students would yell out in the middle of class the score they're getting on the video game they were playing. Disrespecting teachers was too common.
It was awful (remember- I was at that one school and then homeschooled. I didn't have to deal with things like that. Failing to turn in homework and disrupting class has always been punished in my world).
On the first day of school, there was an announcement. Apparently, the whole "student's aren't turning homework" thing wasn't working for the school. They decided that academic standards needed to be raised.
|pretty much me when they said "Academic standards need to be raised"|
I also have really great classes/teachers this year! I have two of the academic advisers to the school as my math and english teachers, I have the same history teacher as last year (he's pretty awesome) and finally....
|i needed an excuse to use this. don't judge me|
That's off topic...
But yeah, I'm also the vice pres. of the art club, and the costumer for the drama club! I'm really excited!
It looks like my junior year is going to be pretty great :D
(Also, here is a wonderful line from my Girls Bible/Contemp. Issues teacher who got married last year: "You should all come to the beach party! Then you can meet my husband and see how hot he is!!" lol!)
it will be another 873 years (or so) before we have another August with 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays
we live in some pretty rad times
