Counting Down the Days

Summer, here I come!
12 and a half days... 11 and a half days... 10 and a half days... 9 and a half days....8 and a half days...
I'm getting there. I'm getting to the day of laughter. The day of memories. The day of crying. The day of joy. The day I leave my middle school.

It's such a bittersweet feeling. I mean, I'm anticipating the day when I no longer have to deal with crazy administrators and people that I scowl at each time I look at them... But then I don't want to leave some of the most amazing teachers and amazing people...

But you know, there's always a time when we have to move on, and I will do that. I will count down the days I don't have to deal with some of the worse teachers I've known... but I don't want to count the days I have left to be with the great teachers that have been there for me these past few years.

I'm feeling so bipolar about this. I want to get away from the place but at the same time, I don't want to leave. I want to get away from all the administrator madness. Speaking of administrator madness... we have a new rule that came out this week. We are no longer allowed to have any physical contact with each other. That means no hugging, no patting, no comforting, no poking, no leaning, no high-fiving... well, you get the idea. I know that this is a strict rule in some schools but why was this brought up when we had 10 days of school left. This rule was brought by our new Vice Principal. She seems nice at first but all of middle school hates her now. I mean, with this new rule was spread across the school and not "officially" announced. This "no physical contact" is considered sexually harassment and I can see why it can be... but that means I can no longer interact with friends. I mean, it's almost impossible to NOT high-five my friends since we do it all the time.

You can't even have physical contact with family members. I mean, one guy went up to hug his sister and he almost got a detention for hugging his sister. That is absurd! I told my parents this... and they laughed. It's ridiculous. That new Vice Principal has no idea what she's doing. I mean, if she was going to make the rule, at least make it for next year... not 10 days before school is out. Everyone is mocking the rule now... Including all the best students.

That's one of the reasons I want to leave the school. My silly administrators make good stories to tell though. :)

  1. WHAT?! You can't even high-five people? That's harsh!
    Unfortunately, I still have...20 days of school. Ugh.

  2. Oh lord...
    We've had that "law" in our school for years now. You said it perfectly-- ABSURD.

    I have....less than 30 days, I think around same as LO
