Today is my first day of 8th grade, and I just want to say that a lot of things have happened over the summer.
"Hey Mom. Am I going over to Dad's today."
"Heather are you ready for school."
"Holling, lets just go."
Over the summer I did lots of things like play baseball and hanging out with Danny. Also, Mrs. Baker has been giving me Cross Country lessons so I can set the school record this year.
"What's up Danny."
"Not much. I heard that one of the teachers this year is Mr. Perkins. You don't want him."
As you can tell my parents got divorced, but it is going better than you would expect. I spend a week at my Mom's and a week at my Dad's. But, after the divorce Hoodhood and Associates started losing clients, but they are still doing okay.
"Everyone get your schedules!"
"Alright. My name is Holling Hoodhood. Okay I got to go to room 233
Heather has been doing pretty good too. She is still wants to be a flower child, but she isn't running away, and next year she'll be going to Colombia University after a lot of convincing.
Mr. Hoodhood, I heard a lot of things about you. So, SIT DOWN!
Uh. This could be bad.
WELCOME TO MR. PERKINS CLASS SIT DOWN AND NO TALKING
Mr. Perkins was one of the oldest, meanest, strictest teacher in the school. Last year I thought Mrs. Baker was bad, but Mr. Perkins is at least 10 times worse.
We also got a new principal. Mrs. Sidman did a really good job so she got moved up to be assistant superintendent.
I got Mr. Perkins this year, so we're going to see how that goes. But, if it's going to be anything like 7th grade it could be okay. But, I don't think its going to go like that.
