If you click on the star on the first post of a thread, then that is the one that lets you see the thread on the MB pages.
You must have skipped the part where I wrote that the music teacher played a record and I thought a violin was a piano. Or was it the other way around? Either way, that's bad! I like music. Not any of today's music, really. I do like classical music if it's not too fast. I like the harp. I like Christian music, but again, not if it's loud or like rap or anything. Worship music. That's what I like to listen to.
I'm supposed to be in 9th grade. I flunked 8th grade, but not because I didn't try or care. I was bullied really bad in 7th grade, which was right after we moved. Nobody at school cared no matter how much my mom talked to them and it got worse all the time. On the bus the kids wouldn't let me sit down, which is illegal, but the bus driver acted like i was invisible. Toward the very end of the school year this highschooler (cuz the middle and high schools are beside one another so we are on the same bus) snuck up behind me and kicked me in the back as hard as he could. I smashed my head and face on the metal and glass at the front of the bus. There was blood everywhere. I was RIGHT BESIDE the bus driver and he STILL acted like I wasn't there. He kept driving and let me off at my bus stop. When I got home my mom freaked out and took me to the hospital. I had a bad concussion and had migraines on and off all summer. My depression and anxiety got worse.
I started cyberschool, but I couldn't focus and I was home alone all day and had no friends, so I just got more depressed. I did start to see a therapist at the beginning of the school year, but things like that don't start to help right away. So I ended up flunking 8th grade. I started a different cyberschool this year and I'm doing much better because I'm feeling a lot better. I started to go to a new church at the end of August and I'm finally feeling comfortable there and I think I'm finally making one friend. The pastor only came on July first, so she is new, too. I can talk to her or ask her to pray for me if I really need to, and I can email her, so that's really nice and helpful. So, that's why I'm 14 and in the 8th grade. Cyberschool is okay. I'd rather do homeschool, but since the school NEVER acknowledged there was ever a problem, they wouldn't provide this for me and my mom is a single mom, so this was the only option. If I were doing homeschool I would be plugged into a group and probably have other friends.
Wow, you have a braille teacher. I thought you were doing this on your own. No wonder I couldn't teach myself. It must be harder than I had thought. I had tried to start with children's books, too, but just couldn't get the hand of it. That is so cool that you do that! The Secret Series was one of my fave series. I think you'll like Wonder. It's my favorite book, but I don't own it. I want to get it sometime so I can reread it. There is this other book that came out that is like "Wonder 365 Days a Year" or something. Like inspirationas stuff or something, I'm guessing. I would like that, too. Yeah, I hate that everything in books and TV is getting more violent. I just reserved The Lightning Thief. I think you said you read that series, right? I know practically everyone on the MB seems to love the Percy Jackson related series and even think that Rick Riordan himself is a god or some sort!
I think there is still a posting glitch going on. If I type a really long post, like this one, I generally save it on Word now in case it doesn't go through. Sometimes it goes through, sometimes it doesn't. So hard to tell sometimes. Alabaster writes great stories and with his first story he learned the hard way to save his chapters on Word before posting them on here.
I'd better go. I still have some chores to do as well as some school work. We are probably going to be snowed in tomorrow (I was going to go to a church meeting tomorrow, but it will probably be cancelled), so I will probably be on here, do more chores (there are always so many) and read. I need to catch up on my reading!
Catch you later, George
