I love when people on facebook put their middle name as someone famous. I just went through my suggested friends on there and there was LeBronJames and JustinBeiber and a JoBroHo. Everyone knows that’s not your middle name and you just look dumb.
I understand that you like them and all, but that’s just weird. Five years ago, the Jonas Brothers didn’t even exist. Justin Beiber just came around, like, six months ago. LeBron James is a basketball player, he’ll be retired before you know it.
I’ve had a rough week. I can tell you that, it’s been bad.
Wednesday, May 26- I’m called down to guidance during the time between second and third period and my guidance counselor tells me that I need to talk to my BioChem teacher because I’m not passing her class. I was going to make up a test third period until she called me down. I ended up taking the test which I had gotten 100% on. I go back down to guidance and talk to her about my classes that I’m “failing” or she says I am. She says I need to talk to my Economics teacher and my Trig teacher because I’m in danger of failing their classes too.
I talk to my BioChem teacher and she tells me that I never turned in an excuse from April 30. I knew that I had because I was in the hospital on April 21 and my doctor faxed over an excuse for April 21 to April 30 because I had missed those days. I asked to see the excuse. My doctor’s office put 4/21 - 4/29 and they faxed it over on 4/30, they even admitted that they assumed the school would excuse me on 4/30 as well. They didn’t. In fact, my BioChem teacher is the one in charge of the excuses for seniors. She tells me if I get an excuse for 4/30 in, I can make up a test and I’ll pass.
I talk to my Trig teacher, she said I need to make up a test. I talk to my Economics teacher and he says I have nothing turned in and that I have to work on these papers. I had six due by the end of the period. Each one has to be a minimum of 150 words, but he wouldn’t tell me what the papers were on. I threw my final at him and walked back down to guidance. I wasn’t dealing with him anymore.
Thursday, May 27- I’m called back down to guidance. She tells me that I still need an excuse for 4/30. I call my doctor from the office and tell them to fax it while I’m still on the phone because my graduation depends on it. They did.
I get to BioChem and I’m told that I can’t take the test that I missed. She had just told me the day before that if I got an excuse that I could take it. That wasn’t good enough. I went back down to guidance. They send me from guidance to the attendance officer to see if he’ll allow it. He said it’s a month late and he won’t pull strings. He said I had to talk to my BioChem teacher. She sends me back to guidance. I went to the office and called my mom and told her she needs to come up to the high school because they are refusing to talk to me about my graduation but they’re saying that I’m not graduating.
Mom comes up and tries to explain to the school that I have epilepsy and I missed a lot of school because I was having seizures and was in the hospital because of it. They still didn’t care. The excuse was still too late. They told her that I failed three classes and that I need to come back next year.
Friday, May 28- My mom and I go to the administation office to talk to the superintendent. He wasn’t in but they sent us over to the high school. We talked to the principal and he allowed me to take the test from BioChem that I was being told I couldn’t take. He took me to the room and told the teacher that I can take the test. She tore off part of the sheet because she didn’t go over it in class and handed me the test. I took the test and went to talk to another teacher about a grade.
I talked to my other teachers and called my mom to come get me because I wasn’t allowed to stay in the school. My mom gets a phone call saying I failed BioChem because I missed too many labs. They told her Thursday that I missed a test and that’s what was causing me to fail.
Tuesday, June 1- My mom calls the superintendent and finally talks to him. She tells him about the seizures and how I’m not graduating because I missed too many labs and that I wasn’t allowed to make up the labs. He told her that I was going to be put on homebound for the summer and I can get my diploma before I start college and I’ll be a 2010 graduate.
Wednesday, June 2- Nothing major happened.
Thursday, June 3- My doctor refused to sign off on the homebound paperwork. I have one more doctor that might sign off on it. He’s my last hope.
Friday, June 4- Graduation day. This is hell on me. I should be on that stage tonight.
