... Of why I thought having a child was a good idea.
Redheads are supposed to be stubborn, but I got nothing on this kid.
She got it from her dad.
It is quite interesting when he decides she is going to do something and she decides she is NOT.
She starts high school next fall and got her schedule done.
There is a journalism class and she won't sign up for it.
The kid loves to write.
But, she " hates deadlines".
I went over the requirements for graduation and she needs one Fine Arts elective
which is 1 semester of band, chorus, theater, design/drawing, or journalism.
She doesn't do chorus or band.
She hates being in front of people so theater is out.
She doesn't want to take design.
So, she decides she will do chorus and I point out all the stuff about it that she hates and she keeps giving me the evil eye.
I mention journalism.
And she informs me in a real nasty tone that she isn't doing journalism.
And walks upstairs.
I don't get it.
She spends hours and hours on her laptop writing stories.
I know journalism isn't fiction, but it's writing
It's going to be a long 4 years.
