First day in St. Louis!

The Arch

Today I was a shadow. That’s when you follow a student arond during their school day to see what their school is like. First, I went to an Advanced English class which had a terrific discussion on The Picture of Dorian Gray. (I’ll have to read that book sometime in the near future.) Second, I went to a social studies class that was talking about different forms of censorship by the government in the media. Third, I went to another English class where the class was taking a test. I took it along with them but of course mine wasn’t graded. We also discussed the main characters of the story “Of Mice and Men” (I haven’t read that book yet either. =p) Finally, we had lunch…YAY! It was really yummy fettuccine with zuccini and salad. It was sooo good. I also had an interview to end the day.  I think It went really well. We’ll find out by the 15th of March if I made it.

Today was our mini-Relay For Life. We did laps in the gym, listened to cancer survivors, and also had a prayer service and a mass. This year, it was really different because I actually knew someone with cancer. My classmate, D, was diagnosed with bone cancer. He just recently came back to school and uses crutches because they had to replace a part of his leg bone. We’re all just relieved that he’s back in school with us.

I got to read at the prayer service because I’m part of the school’s relay for life team. I can’t wait for the real Relay for Life. This year it’s at the local college. My school’s team, the Lions, will have atleast one person making laps all eighteen hours. It’s always alot of fun and it all goes to a great cause.

Today, I told C and S about my possibly going to high school in St. Louis. I really want to go and will miss them alot. I’m just not sure if I’ll be able to say good-bye to everything I’ve ever known. I talked to the Admissions Director yesterday night. She was very nice and we talked for a while. I think I’ll be going up there to spend a day at the school this Friday. I am so excited!
