Actual conversations from school
Lilly: What's the date?
Me: The eleventh.
Lilly: *long pause* What month?
Me: It's that time of the year, isn't it, Lilly?
Indeed, it is that time of year. Summer vacation starts in a week and a half, and we're at the point where nobody cares about anything. We fail projects and get detention and do things we normally do, except without a care in the world. And I'm just a freshman- seniors have got it even worse:
Trevor: Can I draw on the board?
Ms. Breen: No.
Trevor: Jake gets to!
Ms. Breen: He's a senior, you're a sophomore.
Trevor: *sigh* Jack, you're a senior. Go draw on the board.
Jack: Are you kidding me? I can't draw; I can barely even read!
It sucks, because finals are coming up, and for the past 3 weeks, nobody's been paying attention to hardly anything:
Mr. Reed: Here's a review packet for your final.
Me: We've got a final in here?!
Mr. Reed: Uh, yeah.
Me: Since when?
Mr. Reed: It's been on the board the whole week!
Me: Oh, Mr. Reed, I stopped reading stuff, like, the beginning of April.
We're all a bit more easily provoked:
Brandon: What are you listening to on your iPod? I can hear it.
Brandon: Who listens to JET anymore?
Me: Obviously me, jackass!
And we've all got to find some way to relieve boredom:
-in the lobby, at the gym-
Becca: *throws Fireball candy at brick wall, Fireball bounces back*
Me: Oh, you almost got it!
Dalton: *walks in* What are you guys doing?
(I ended up winning, by the way. I aimed for the wall, and hit the glass door. It shattered loudly, and we all thought I broke the glass door.)
And screw going to college and becoming a doctor, we've all got different career plans in mind:
Billy: Being a hitman would be so awesome.
Me: Oh, I've thought about it.
Billy: Yeah, except now the government says you have to be 18 or older!
Me: *shakes head*
Billy: Damn government.
Me: The root of all problems.
Summer vacation starts May 22nd at 12:31 pm. You can bet I'll be running, listening to No Such Thing by John Mayer as loudly as possible, singing along at the top of my lungs- "I wanna run through the halls of my high school, I wanna scream at the top of my lungs!"...
