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 ex
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.
