Partners In Crime

One crucial piece of first-day information that nobody told anybody is the place where the buses go in the afternoons. So I head out a door and walk a quarter of the way around building. Buses. Where's mine?

Located G instead. The two of us start looking for ours. Six. One-twenty-eight. Seventy-two.

A bus pulls pass and I have a look at the number.

"G! That's our bus!"

We run. There's a billion kids in our way. A bus has certain locomotive advantages over a pair of girls with loose notebooks.

So we get on L's bus instead. She lives resonably near Swimmerette, who lives resonably near G, who lives resonably near me. Close enough. If my ID card with its white-and-yellow depiction of my face is supposed to be checked, it isn't.

We get off at L's stop and say goodbye. G and I walk a block or so, call S-B M, who isn't in a mood to be talked to, get a pair of shakes at Dairy Queen, split up, and walk home.

I'm home at four-thirty. And the only person angry with me was my brother, because I got a shake.

Waiting for buses takes forever... at least at North it does. Billions of kids on a relatively thin slab of concrete that goes around the school. Not a pleasant experience trying to pass through.

Dang you have 4th period lunch! I have 6th period so that means alot food is gone and unavailable, lunch ladies are irratable, the cafeteria is relatively dirty, etc. Plus theres FYIM (which I'm sure you have an equivelent of) during lunch, so that makes the first 20 minutes of the last period lunch inaccessible due to the ramblings of some older students.

I dislike enriched chem...

As I scrolled up, I saw that the background had loaded. That's an awesome picture!

AH i stayed 5 mins over in enriched chem to finish a hard lab...and the teacher kept repeating over and over to everyone "remember A is for excellent. i won't be giving out too many of those this year." Meh and i have no idea how to finish the lab. On a happier note, all my other classes are good.

i just threw my cup away in the garage and told my dad that our bus was late. oh well, lol.
