I just wanna see him do it, okay?
I agree, anon
I feel pretty happy today.
I got my ISS Detention changed to 4th period and it was actually kind of nice. It was just like study hall, except it was a lot quieter. I just sat there and wrote for forty minutes and I was happy. The teacher was my sociology teacher so that was cool. He actually thought they had made a mistake when he read my name.
In Public Speaking, my teacher used my work as the example because it showed quality senior work and what she expects out of us which felt really nice because at least if my presentations suck, I do a good job at writing my answers and understanding concepts of public speaking.
I had Tangents today and my public speaking teacher dropped in and said “Oh Jackie’s in here? She’s mine,” And smiled all proudly and the Tangents advisor said “Oh is she? She’s something,” and I was pretty honored.
Later on, when we were all filing out, the advisor said “Jackie, my dear, you have talent.” and suggested I write longer pieces and that she’d look into helping me publish, most likely in a magazine.
She says she’s impressed that I’m so young, yet captured the ability to show not tell and that she could envision everything I wrote clearly in her head and I was just amazed because it was a short story I wrote in ISS, knowing I had to have something prepared for the club. I didn’t even do any editing.
