So we all know that a lot of children have a major dislike for school. Scratch that… I will make it a little more personal–> I HATE SCHOOL! Seriously! I know and understand how much education is needed and the main goals, objectives, and yata yata yata (<– Exhibit A: This is a Prime example of why we actually need school. This probably isn’t a real word and if it is, I’m sure that it is spelled wrong LOL).
I get all of that, but why though? Just why?
In my last post, I talked about my parents trying to use everything in life as a teaching moment. In October 2017, they (the parents) said, “we’re going to sign you up in this business class that the Ruston Chamber of Commerce is offering”. I was blown away. They already know how I feel about school. They were really tripping. At the risk of repeating myself, I will say this again… I HATE SCHOOL! They know good and well that I don’t like to do stuff outside of my comfort zone on top my upper-level dislike for anything dealing with people, education, books, pens… just anything even school-like is just not enjoyable.
They begin to tell me more about the program and how I would have to go to class once a week on a Thursday evening from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Now, what now?!? I was considering admitted them to the psychiatric ward by then. They had to be 2 donuts short of a dozen. They were seriously losing their minds, but they had already signed me up and not asking me for my opinion… they were just giving me the head up!
OMG! This is crazy and they– the parents, are too!
I was already forced to go to regular school Monday through Friday for 8 whole hours, not including extracurricular activities. Then they added an extra three more hours to my Thursdays. This “business program” was starting to sound like a fancy way of saying a school that ISN’T for a grade! I was not about to have that, but they said so and I went with it.
This is the beginning of the beginning, but it was sort of like a setup…
Stay tuned to read up on the rest of this journey– it’s a wild one!
