Let's think of all the reasons a kid would be nervous going to high school, shall we?
- Being a freshman
- Not knowing anyone
- Intimidation over curriculum
- Not wanting to look like a jerk on campus not knowing how to get around
- Worried about procedures
- Worried of not fitting in
- Worried about not wearing the right clothes
- Grades count
- Being small since all the Seniors are close to real height
Did I miss anything? Think back to when you were going to be a freshman. Did anything make you nervous, if so, did I miss it? Think about it before I tell you what Bones' worst fear is.
Here we go.
He is scared because kids are... having sex.
He told me this and I said, "Dude, teenagers are having sex at ALL the high schools..."
This did not help. I got, "They are? Are you kidding? Why? Why are they not waiting until they get married?! I don't get it..."
And on and on he went in this little freaked out voice and finally I said, "Listen to me, they are NOT having sex during class. It's after school. Not in front of you in English..."
To which he replied, "Yeah, well, their practice rooms were all dirty and I asked one of the high school students helping out and he said it was because people have sex in there."
I took a deep breath and said, "Fine. If you are freaked about using the practice rooms, I'll get you a roll of lysol wipes. You can wipe it down before you practice..."
He rolled his eyes.
This is freaking him out on a big deep scale... this kids having sex.
He keeps asking me little things like, 'What do you think this high school is known for?"
I told him they were known for kids being different and that it was OK. That you could be gay, have blue hair, be emo, or be normal, nobody cared.
It's a frickin' ART SCHOOL. Give me a dang break. I assured him that there were drugs, alcohol and sex at EVERY high school and the bonus was at THIS particular public high school, there were no gangs, guns, and knives.
Good grief. I am so hoping that in four years, as he's getting ready to graduate, that I can say, "Do you remember when you were so freaked out because kids were having sex?"
So this high school, if he gets in, here are some vids of the vocal department. Boys first: (Tempo change at 1:22, great solo at 3:45)
And the full on Chorus: (Solo...:59)
And on a little side note... while I was searching for a video, I found this odd wedding video... a flash Mob of Les Miz. A group of the people AT the reception, all very talented amazing singers, surprised the bride and groom.
You have to see it... how amazing is this "One Day More":Posted by Boudicca at January 17, 2013 10:21 PM
