on wednesday the 17th of november 2021
my mom died of liver disease.
i stopped going to school for a while,
and even when i was being forced to attend,
i would refuse to go in on wednesdays.
wednesdays easily became the worst day.
i got transferred to an AP school last year
because my attendance was at 26%.
i am doing a lot better here mentally,
and i am forever grateful for this school.
the entire concept of school on wednesday
was, in itself, a trauma trigger for me
but at this school, i didn't have a choice
it's a referral-based school, so
if i didn't attend i'd just be expelled.
it's wednesday today.
here's my timetable:
music, science, english, two free periods.
my three best subjects, and two free hours.
and i intend to attend every single class.
it's funny, actually. or maybe it isn't, but
i find it funny to look back on it.
wednesday used to be so anxiety-inducing
that i would avoid leaving my room
and now i find it's one of my best days.
