Last Day of Senior Year

So today is the last day of my senior year. It's a bittersweet day because I am really sad to be leaving all my friends and teachers here in high school, but I am also excited to start the next chapter of my life. Most of the seniors are braking dress code, going around the school with food in their hands, and some are even riding on scooters! I even got my freshman time capsule sheet back! When I was a freshman I thought that as a senior I was going to be 5''4 (correct!), I was going to have hair a little longer than my shoulders (nope! my hair is about shoulder length!). that that maybe I would wear make up as a senior (nope!). I also thought my favorite class would be either English (yep!) or history (sort of!), and I thought I would apply to Brandeis (yep, but i'm not going there) or USC (nope! did not apply!). I thought Yale would not even be anywhere in my league and that I wouldn't be applying there and even though I didn't get in, I did apply because it kind of was semi in my league. I had no idea if I would have a relationship, but turns out senior year I did have one. I thought I would peruse writing as a profession and that is one of my options for sure!

It's pretty much like a huge party outside my advisory right now!!! Wow!!! My advisory said "its just chaos out there". Oh and I did in fact decide to tell the learning specialist about what happened with my teacher being really disrespectful about my accommodation of leaving the room and she was just outraged about how my teacher acted! She was so sweet to me and made me feel so much better about the situation. She was totally on my side and thought my teacher had been way out of line. My LC is truly the best! Thanks everyone who encouraged me to speak up about this even though I only have two days left of school! I feel so much better and my LC has assured me that she will take this through the proper channels so the school is aware or this teacher's actions

Other than that, there's not much more to tell. I start my job with the opera theater company on the 19th and I have orientation on the 12th. I also am meeting with someone from the disability resources department tomorrow to hear more about accommodations in college. I am requesting pretty much the same accommodations that I have not. Time and a half on in class assignments, tests, and exams, a private room in some cases for exam taking, and a calculator for any test or in class assignment that requires math calculation. I will let you guys know how the meeting goes tomorrow! Otherwise, I am signing off for now :)
