As I promised today would be an interesting day for sure.
Well, as you remember from yesterday’s bloggings, my mom would not let me go to school today because it would be “disruptive” or something like that. So.. I wokeup at 6:15 and played asleep until mom left at 7:20. When she left I started to run through everything I had to do. I had to do some laundry, after I showered of course so I could get hot water, and write thank you notes for my Eagle Ceremony.
I got my laundry and notes done by 10 so I ran off to get my haircut. That finished by 10:30.
I rolled into SHHS and parked in a visitor spot. I was suppose to be going to the media studio where Tiger Times had a todo list for me and a video Pep Rally that needed to get edited since the gym is out of comission.
I walked in with the PVEC kids or whatever their acronym is. The kids that go to a different school in the morning. I know I could have walked in with them and no one notices but I stopped into the office to follow the procedures. I wouldn’t want to have someone call the swat team on me.
So I was in the office, Mrs. Zukowski looked over at me. I asked if I had to sign in or something to work on a video in the media studio. She said yes and directed me to the book. I signed in and she asked if Tom knew I was coming, I explained I had just shot him and email and explained the situation with the video pep-rally. After calling the studio and noone answering she told me she couldn’t let me in unless he was there. I removed my visitors pass and “signed out”. She told me to call Adam, he was going out to lunch with a friend for lunch.
I walked out of the school and saw Katie and Billy Ray waiting for me, I quickly told them I wasn’t allowed in and left.
Grr, I’m rather upset. Technically I’m still an employee as I explained before.
As a college student, I know that “alumni” are always welcome in the school and frequently visit. Actually, they have their own special building. Alumni contribute financially and with their career endevours. High school on the other hand takes an opposite approach to alumni. Alumni are not allowed to visit members of the community or school, hence no donations are collected. As a recent graduate I’m given one day to visit the school without having to schedule an appointment, and even then.. that day is restricted with loose enforcement. I dislike this system, high schools need more money and things but can’t get them because no one is willing to donate. No one is willing to donate because their not allowed to visit staff members or use the facilities.
I don’t know anymore where I was going, I’m just very upset. I feel like I’ve been voted out of SHHS as well as the Studio. Who else wants to speak harshly to me today?
