First up tonight, a glorious sight that we hope to experience this year.
Thank you, dear guidance office that obviously knows exactly what we need. Thank you for not making us trek across some God awful parking lot with broken concrete when the sun is melting the suit off our body dragging our raggedy travel bag that is one curb bump away from ultimate death behind us. Any counselors that read this blog - take note. More of this, por favor.
Next up, we really enjoy these. Info card mishaps. Here are a couple of our faves.
“Musical interest (any instruments)”. And the child lists “Eminem”. We can see where they may be confused, but it does clearly then define musical interest as instrumentation. Let’s debate: is Eminem an instrument? ….we might actually be able to defend this kid’s response… shudder.
Major of interest: “IDK”.
Independent Deadly Kickboxing
International Dealing of Keno
Indigenous Danish Knitting
Inspirational Drywalling of Kitchens
Ideological Dockyard Keeling
(NOTE: We do know what the student meant by “IDK”. Please don’t message us and fill us in the latest text-speak definitions. We got this.)
Second part (and we’ll try to be as sensitive about this as possible). We understand that students classify themselves these days into multiple ethnic groups, but our heavens! That’s a lot of boxes. Pretty sure that’s why we put an “Other” box on most interest cards now. We sort of wish she would have had some Pacific Islander in her too. Quadfecta, FTW!
Good stuff tonight. Tweets/Posts of the Week tomorrow.
We leave you with a little reminder of the gloriousness that awaits all of us in just a few short hours…
