My baby is going to be a high school graduate in just a week and a half.
Today is her last day of class.
Time goes by so fast.
I am really glad for her in so many ways.
No more putting up with a school full of people that think it is fine to dismiss other people as inconsequential. (There's my big word of the day!)
My husband says how tough it is in the real world, but I'd still rather be in it rather then back in school.
His life wasn't great, he had fun and friends. But he was also not sober too often in those days.
I had a horrible time in school. Not well liked as well as always sober.
My daughter is pretty much like me.
She is such a great kid, but no one ever gave her a chance.
And she is just so over pretending all of it doesn't bug her.
She doesn't like most of the kids so what they think really doesn't matter that much.
At the same time, being in that environment day after day takes its toll.
Character Counts is a thing in Iowa that schools tout and pretend that they give a crap.
They all pretend that bullying doesn't happen in their school.
Until the school gets sued or a student kills himself because of bullying.
She is glad she won't have to put up with the kids AND the school.
I am glad I don't have to put up with that school.
Kiddo plans to stay working where she is at and hopefully get full time soon.
For graduation, they gave her a sheet cake and I got that ordered.
Now, shit just got real.
I have to start cleaning and cooking and buying stuff for the reception.
I hope it doesn't rain.
I don't know how I would fit all those people in my house.
