On Thursday the 10th of August, I had my first day of school at Allen County Scottsville High School! We had to leave home at
Although today's timetable was all over the place, on normal days my schedule looks like this:
First Block: US History
Second Block: Algebra II
Third Block: Advanced PE
Fourth Block: English 11
We didn't do much work today as we had to go over the policies and the syllabus in each subject so I don't know what to expect yet. It's so strange for me to only have 4 classes a day, but each block goes for an hour and a half so I guess that makes sense. For my first few classes I had Abby to show me where to go, but when it came time for English I was on my own. So of course I got lost and arrived late to class. We didn't do much today as we had to go over the policies and the syllabus for each subject. The majority of my classes are pretty good and I have made new friends in them, except for advanced PE as the class is full of seniors and I am a junior. This also sucks because I have Lunch with my PE class, so I don't have anyone to sit with yet. But I'm sure that'll change with time.
Even though I get dropped off in the mornings, I have to catch the school bus on the way home. I didn't think they would actually use the yellow buses that you see in the movies, but they do. My bus is always really crowded and full of younger kids who like to scream so it isn't the pleasantest of rides. It also takes nearly 2 hours to get home but this leaves me with the perfect time to have a nap.
Overall, I had a pretty good first day even though I had to wake up super early!
