I woke up on the first day of school near death . Any medical professional would have insisted I stay home, but not my mom
She dragged me out of bed and told me that I had to be at the bus stop in fifteen minutes . . . Mom is usually a very relaxed person , but when she gets mad , she morphs into some kind of terrifying . And that morning she meant business.
I got ready super fast and caught the bus right before it left . Stepping onto the bus was like entering big yellow moving box of chaos . Everyone was yelling and throwing things across the aisle and switching seats when the bus driver wasn’t looking . No one bothered with seatbelts .
If this was the ride to middle school , what would actual middle school be like ? Kids on tv always talk about how school is a prison , but I can tell they don’t really mean it because the schools on tv look way too fancy to be prison / mean it , though pointdexter school looksreally does look like a prison .
Building D is the tallest building (four stories) and all the windows have thick metal bars on the outside . The teacher claims it’s for safety reasons but Lana Alvarez told me the hole place used to be a prison in the fifteys , but when they decided to change it into a school , all the teachers voted to keep the bars ON .
Lana Alvarez is a huge gossip queen and kind of a trouble maker . She told me that story right as she was mixing up the colored caps on Ms.Bennet ‘ s white board markers ,so she isn’t 100 percent trust worthy . I don’t know what is true , but I also don’t know if that’s completely untrue .
