Sorry I haven't written all week, I'm sure you're eager to know how the first week of school was.
I think it's weird to just call you diary (though, that's what you are) and you probably want a real name. Is it weird that I'm considering naming a notebook? I hope not.
Our first class is Accounting. The teacher doesn't care what you do, so it's easy to play games and doodle, but there is (easy) work to be done, so don't fall asleep. He has the most monotonous voice I've ever heard. I wonder what teacher would have taught this class back home.
Then it's Math, and you have to be careful. The teacher has a sharp eye and can practically sense when you're not working. He's kind and funny, so just stay on his good side. He walks around the class a lot, so don't doodle. He hasn't left the class once this whole week, but he does come about ten minutes after the bell, so that's some extra phone time.
Flex (the class for "homework") is in the same class, which equals about 120 minutes (or 7200 seconds) of Math...all in the morning. Coffee has become my best friend, God knows I need one.
Lunch is great. The cafeteria is too loud and noisy for anyone to notice anything. Just eat and scroll through Instagram, this is your only non-structured down time before school ends.
CALM sucks. Majorly. Apparently we can't even have our laptops open while he's talking, so that limits time to play WolfQuest. Other than that, take a nap, none of this stuff is important anyway.
Humanitites...we'll most likely be on laptops, so play a game, watch a video, etc. She's pretty oblivious, but she will take away your phone, so keep it on the DL.
My real concern is what to do when I need to write a diary entry. I could do it in CALM, but we sit right beside someone, with no space in between us. That's not a good idea. Sitting in the back of a class, alone, is the best idea, but the cool kids tend to already be there.
Humanities would work when we're in the commons area, and during lunch, not Accounting because he's always assigning new pages to work on.
About the teachers directly, the Accounting teacher drones on, hands out work page, then drones on some more.
The Math teacher will hover and point out everything you're doing wrong, can't relax there, maybe in that useless "homework" class.
CALM teacher paces the middle row and doesn't care if you doodle, sit away from him and tuck yourself away in a corner, then you've got the green light.
The Humanities teacher won't care, so that's the best idea; just sit away from everyone else...if possible.
Well, school starts soon and I'm still not dressed, so we've gotta go. I'll write again in Humanities to tell you if my ideas are right. I'll find some ideas for your name during lunch.
- Jane (too basic)
- Evelyn (pretty, maybe too different)
- Emma (good one)
- Isabella (sleek)
- Sophia (too girly, you, Diary, deserve something creative and artsy)
September 10, 2017 (again)
It's CALM and I've decided on your name. First off, no, I'm not in the back corner, I'm right in the teacher's sight line...yes, I regret my decision.
Oh, I should have started this entry differently. Let me start over.
