Last night was a rough one for me. I found out my parents didn’t have enough money to pay the rent and the landlord kicked us out of our trailer. That man threw out our belongings and we didn’t have much left behind.
We went to our Auntie’s house and I had to sleep on the floor. I need to get a job to help my parents out. I don’t want to continue to live like this.
I was heading to school but I forgot my backpack at my Auntie’s house. It was chaos getting ready for school and getting my siblings together.
Headed to my Homeroom and trying to keep a smile on my face. My friends know something is wrong but how do I tell them that my parents got evicted? I played it cool because I don’t want my business spread around campus.
I’m sitting in class and my teacher is collecting the homework. I didn’t have my backpack so I wasn’t prepared. I know that was my fault but it was so much other stuff going on. Do you know that my teacher scolded me in front of my classmates? Things couldn’t get any worse. So…I walked out!
A few days later, I was in the admin office because that teacher wrote a referral. The referral said I was being disrespectful and I walked out of class. But the teacher didn’t write what they did? My next question is why is the assistant principal bringing this up days later? Why do I have ISS tomorrow? I hate school!
