Making The Grade

When I was in my junior year in high school, my counselor called my parents and set up a conference with them to go over my grades and attendance. I thought, “oh crap, this isn’t going to go well for me”. The counselor showed a long list of absences, tardies, and cut classes along with my failing grades. She said if I wanted to graduate with my class I was going to have to add a zero period and a seventh period as well as attend night school. WHAT!!! My parents agreed and set up this contract like document and I didn’t have any say in the matter. It was part of my punishment for pretending that I was going to school or for calling in as my mom to clear my absences. That meant I would start school at 6:50am and wouldn’t get out till almost 5:00pm. So I had to talk to my boss at work to see if they could work around my schedule just for a little while. They did, which I was so thankful for. Don’t forget though, I still have to attend night school, luckily it was only two nights a week, but the class was super long so I couldn’t work on those nights. I did my time, everything that I had to do, I did. I did mess around a lot during night school though. I thought it was really fun. We made the best of a crappy situation. I made the good grades and earned the credits I needed so I advanced to my senior year. It wasn’t all exciting or anything, it was just, “eh”. Parents were happy and glad I was back on track. So bring on the seniors.
