And I love hearing all the stories of gossip and drama circling around the school without having to partake in messy affairs. And the comical way people respond to my hello's with a quick glance and automatic hey, then literally do a double take as if they can't believe what they're seeing. And how much more I feel like I belong there than here at times, and how I often laugh as much there in one visit as I do for a week here.
And they have open campus. How sick would it be to go to Chipotle every day? And kids just talk on their phones in the hallways. And they don't have prayer before every single period (har har har). And the classrooms are small and a bit cramped, or maybe I'm just not used to it. And everyone's Asian. And their periods are SO SHORT (compared to our hour and a half). Class is over before you know it. I've pretty much forgotten what it was like to go to public school.
