Note sorry the last blog was in two different size fonts I don't know why it happened and I can't figure out how to fix it. :-)

Today I worked on my bookmarks and my books at my parents garage sale, and they only live less than 8 blocks away so it's easy to spend the day there when I need to. I was confronted with the question from a classmate today: The question was, do I miss high school? I had to think about that for a moment. I don't really miss high school in itself. I miss the people and the teachers mostly... Sure, there are a few classmates that I miss but the ones I am the closest that are on social media thankfully.

Later, I thought about her question some more and my answer  was : No school in itself was not easy for me. As a disabled person, I tended to get picked on in school, at least in my later years, and by later years I mean my teenage and/or high school years... There are things I miss of school or, if you want to put it this way, aspects of it. I miss the Friday night football games that I can see my friends play in every week, or at least try to make a few, anyway, I miss Friday's. When when Friday's came my school that was when the high school was buzzing with excitement because of the football game that was going to be played later that evening whether it be home or or away. I also miss the basketball  season and attending as many games possible because I had friends who played on that team  last but not least I miss my theatre group that I was with mostly everyday after school during a certain time of the year. I thought long and hard about her question even after she left me this afternoon. If I didn't have those aspects of school that I like I wouldn't be the person that I am today, and that holds true to the teachers that were involved in my life as well. They had confidence in me and who I was until I had confidence in myself some of them retired or have even passed away, but those teachers have helped shape my life into who I am today. I will never forget them, and I'm blessed to have them as part of my memory of my high school career, and I'm grateful that God placed them in my life... there was one teacher that worked at our high school that I never had in a class but she still impacted my life because she knew my family while her husband was one of my former teachers, and he too was a big influence in my life.  I thinking about her lately especially when I study French. :-) she was the French teacher at my high school I'm sad I did not have her as a teacher yet she still found a way to impact my life :-) most of you know from Facebook but I have decided to study French this past year. I am using Rosetta Stone I'll tell you that I'm not the best at it but at least I can laugh at myself. I've been trying to challenge myself more and more with new things... This has definitely been a challenge but it's worth it.
