Is that a new holiday that Islam follows?
Report as
Nope... Just a break from school, and one if my faves cause there's no homeworks
Report as
yeah, lucky. I don't ever hardly get a break from a barrage of schoolwork, because I'm homeschooled. if we're visiting relatives or anything, the school goes with me. but if we are traveling, the workload is reduced by about half.
Report as
Oh... You change my view in homeschool... I thought it will be easy but its not
Report as
it's easier than regular school for some kids, like me. I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome when I was 8, and public school was out of the question. my mom put me in a private school for 3rd grade at 10, and I had problems, I was the loner, the one who the other kids, when paired with me for a project, were never really happy about it because nobody knew me that well. well, until I got discovered.
Report as
But you don't get that much break though
Report as
ok, so what? deal breaker: My mom says at the pace I'm going, I might just be able to graduate early. and the explanation from the last comment is coming.
Report as
here's the explanation, it's kinda long, so going in 2 comments: when I was in 3rd grade, nobody ever wanted to be partnered with me because nobody knew me that well.well,except one girl. Her name was Julia,and she was definitely the adventurous type. she kept trying to get to know me,and I kept fighting it, until one day we were out on the playground, and I was drawing with some chalk. she came over to me,said hi,then she asked what I was doing, I told her nothing much,while trying to hide what I was drawing with my shoulder because I was so sure somebody would say it sucked. She peeked over my shoulder, and saw it. obviously she liked it. then she called a couple more of our classmates over, she told them to look at it. next thing I know, my whole class was watching me carefully drawing in the finishing touches. one of them, who had teased me before about my clothes, he went by the nickname of Skip, and he said to me "you know, that's really pretty good. do you like drawing?? you're so alone most times, we don't know that much about you." I told him "yeah, I like drawing. " then Julia saw my hand, she was looking at my nails, which were painted with a design of some sort, flowers. she grabbed my hand, and then said " how the heck did you do this??? did your mom help you, or did you do it yourself??" I told her "I did it myself, I love doing my own nails." The teacher had told us before we went out that we had a project to partner up for, the teacher was partnering us off, and I had seen Skip talking to the teacher when I got in the room, we had all gone to the bathroom in pairs, Julia paired off with me, but surprisingly enough when Skip got put with me for the project he had a huge grin on his face, which I thought was weird, considering that nobody else ever seemed happy about being put with me. I remembered he was known as the class clown, so I asked him "ok, what's going on??" he said "go ask the teacher!!" he sounded like he was about to burst from excitement about something.

I went and asked her "can you please tell me what's going on?? Skip said to come ask you, he seems really happy about being put with me. Usually nobody's happy about it, what's going on??" she told me simply "Skip requested to be put with you, why?? are you two having problems already??" and I'm like "No, we're fine. I'm just trying to figure out why he's actually happy about being put with me, why he actually asked you to put him with me." I went back to him, and said "Why did you ask her to put you and me together??" he said "after I saw that drawing you did, I thought maybe, first of all I should apologize for teasing you last week. I'm sorry I teased you like that. Second, I thought maybe you might like to have a friend in the class, you're always off by yourself doing something, but it might be good if somebody knew a bit about you. Maybe then, when somebody gets put with you for a project they won't be upset about it, they might actually be happy about it. And 3rd, I thought I might ask if we could help each other with the classwork maybe. I suck at the language arts, and no offense, but you suck at math and science, Julia told me, she always gets the desk next to you, and glanced over when you got the last few tests back, and she saw that you had a low grade. I'm good at math and science, and Julia also told me you always get A's for the spelling tests and all that, the lowest you've ever gotten was a B- so I thought maybe I could help you with the math and you could help me with the language arts??" I said " gee, looks like you know more about me than you think. I bet you could guess my favorite color if you tried. Thank you for the apology, I forgive you. And as to helping each other with the work, you're right, I suck at math and science, I love the language arts stuff though. the only thing that sucks there is my handwriting, the teacher goes too fast. she's trying to keep up with the middle group, but it's not just me complaining about her speed, it's most of the class. I'm ok at reading comprehension
Report as
not the best but ok. And I think the lowest spelling test grade I got was a B minus. I think let's give it a whirl and try to help each other." We arranged to work in the cafeteria during lunchtime, and we asked the teacher if we could study together during silent reading, she said we could sit in the hall outside the classroom, and we could study there together during silent reading. She and the LA teacher worked it so during class time Skip and I would be in desks next to each other, they only separated us during tests. We both did great on tests, he was a hard worker. After each study session, we'd set aside about 5 minutes to joke, he told some funny ones for sure. I was usually laughing hard by the time my mom got there, he took his bike to and from school since he lived close, about 20 minutes each way to his house. I lived farther than that, so my dad took me each morning and my mom picked me up most days. anyway, we became good friends, and he and I usually went over to the grassy areas during recess to tumble. I taught him how to nail a good cartwheel, and he showed me some stunts he knew. Then we wrestled in the grass after that, and got to know each other better. The teacher saw big improvements from me when I was put with Skip on the projects, so she put me with him for those most times.

Well skip sounds like a nice guy
Report as
he was. that wasn't his name, but the teacher let us all choose nicknames to go by as long as they were appropriate. I really don't remember his real name, and IDK where my yearbook from that year got put. I do know that in my school picture in that yearbook, I looked like a dork. well, I'm currently leaning towards the geek end of things by the looks of pictures, mostly due to huge glasses. oh well,such is life. I better get off here, ttyl.

technically, Easter is a holiday. just not a holiday celebrated by every religion.

Oh, then Easter. :) It's funny watching my cat running around with Easter eggs. :) I still do Easter egg hunts, I have no clue why...
Report as
you watch your cat running around batting at the easter eggs?? gee, that sounds kinda funny, something I would die from laughter over. I probably will, my grandparents' cat, Trouble, is kinda pesky and, well, trouble, pretty darn cute too. and playful. I call him Hunter because of the fact that hunter=guns and bullets= ballistics. get it?? ballistics is the study of guns and bullets in CSI.
