If It Means A Lot To You...

2 days of incredible feelings.

Yesterday was the day of my IEP meeting. It was really fun actually because Mr.I and Mr.R were there. While Mr.I was talking, Mr.R was just looking at me smiling at me, his expression looked like, well, It looked like how a father would look at his daughter. It was perfect. Mr.I gives me this look often too. Mr.I and Mr.R do so much for me. Mr.I will absolutely not let me settle for 2nd best. He always goes out of his was to make sure everything is "The very best" for me. Today he had me take the entry exam for a higher math class, and he went out of his way to make sure I passed. He always puts me as one of his top priorities and it means a lot to me.

Tomorrow is SIAD day.

SIAD stands for self injury awareness day. My friend Kirsten and I have decided to raise awareness. We went around the school today asking all the teachers to wear orange for SIAD. Some of the conversations were awkward, we got looks and many “Why do you even care?”s. Our school is always telling us to be leaders, every second of everyday. And now we are. I have personal ties to this subject as do many of our friends. Self harm is one of the many elephants in the room. Our goal is to break down the stereotypes surrounding self injury. 

We got many teachers to agree to wear something orange, even a bracelet. Mr.A even let us write on his hand to wear orange tomorrow so he wouldn't forget. We got all but 2-3 teachers to agree. A few were really excited. We hope many of then do it, but I know not all will. I at least hope Mr.R and a few other certain people do it. It would mean so much to me. Anyone who is wearing orange, especially after we asked them to, will have my complete respect. And if Mr.J does it, I will like him just that much more ♥

Speaking of which, today during lunch me and Kirsten went to ask him. He was hanging around outside, staring off into the distance like some model. We stood their for a few minutes. "..Hey?" Kirsten asked. No response. We looked at each other and laughed. "Any day now ;)" I said. He looked up and grinned. We told him about the thing, he still looked really scpacey so I bet he forgot.

Now me and Kirsten are making bracelets and ribbons for anyone who is interested. I hope it works out.

I have an IEP coming up. I'll let you know how it goes if you want (because Mr. B will be there).

Do itttt! IEP meetings with those two are always interesting "Do you have choclate?!"
"Nooo..."
"This is going to be the longest meeting EVER."
"It's half and hour long..."
"Shh."
I hope yours goes well :)

Hahahaha!!! Nice!!
I haven't had an IEP with him before. It's tomorrow actually. I'm pretty pumped. But I can't help think that he'll be as bored as me.

I forgot something:<br />
Earlier in history Mr.A asked the class to quiet down. “Did you guys hear about what happened to Mr.E’s son?” The class went dead silent. “No, we were at Seminary…” He sighed heavily. “Last night Mr.E’s son was killed in a car accident. He hit a pole and…” He trailed off for a moment. “He was killed instantly… Only 17. His youngest.” He went on to tell us more details of the crash. <br />

On Friday we have a free-dress day. We don’t get these often and we are going to be wearing grey in remembrance of his son.
