School... What?

Yup. Today is was the first day of summer school for me.

It's kinda funny, but I got in on the being-a-good-person trump card. Anyway, they called my mom on Friday saying that a spot had opened up for me. I thought, "Yeah!!! Right on!!!"... Well, I went in a little early to give my check for school (thanks to my wallet and my kind Aunt Vicki) only to find that I had become the catalyst for a problem they were facing.

The teachers that run Merlo's Night Academy have been having problems with the District Office (more specifically, the lady that was appointed to take over Night Academy last year) involving a serious (and might I add, debilitating) breakdown in communication.

I walked into the room where I was told to go and found out that the district office forgot to tell the lady who was working on the admission that there were five other students that had turned in their applications... meaning, there was no room for me after all. The teachers, swayed by my calm nature (or something, I guess), began discussing among themselves the whole issue about the District lady in charge, saying stuff like, "She should be repremanded!"

So as I silently sat there, they talked about that for about an hour before going down the list of names, one by one, trying to see if there was a way to fit me. Turns out that they had 44, when they can only fit 40. After a few times of looking the numbers over again, they decided that they will just have to turn some people away. Then they looked at me...

"I would prefer to keep him," they said, "After listening to all of this, I think he deserves to be in." (slightly paraphrased)

So, I spent three hours doing work for my SS Constitution course. I completed a big chunk right off the bat. I only need to spend two hours everyday there, any time between 1 PM and 7 PM. It's a good deal and concidering I didn't actually FAIL Scott's class, it will allow me to make up failing Kutter's class last year... hehe... well, at least half of it, anyway.

Also, I know how to cut my journals, so I can do as many tests as I want without annoying the hell out of saffroncisco! hehe... Or anyone else, for that matter! ROCK ON!!! (Thanks rosemilk!)
