Things I'm Going To Miss About High School: Part 3



Okay, that's a lie. I bought a bagel in the library today and it was delicious. Their cinnamon bagels are to die for, even though I'm pretty sure anybody who was watching me eat it probably thought I was some sort of animal disguised as a human.

Maybe it's just a Timpview thing...

Today in Statistics, we were talking about the AP test. I was tempted to say "You should bring us bagels!" but I felt like I would give her a break today. I'm sure I have made that suggestion before. I know others have, and the reaction of the class has always been something to the effect of "YEAH! YEAH MRS. SWEETWOOD YOU SHOULD BRING US BAGELS!"

I mean, Van Orden has brought us bagels before, I always hear about other teachers bringing bagels...nbd right?

In my college classes, I try very hard to make sure nobody knows I'm still in high school. I have a reputation to keep up. Not really. Basically, everybody in my English 2010 class already thinks I'm racist, and after today, they probably all think I'm completely psycho.

We were talking about the last day of class, which is coming up pretty soon, actually. And my hilarious teacher, Dr. Pepper, said something to the effect of, "I really want you all to come on the last day! Not just because there is a 40 point assignment...but maybe I'll bring you something!"

Me (thinking): I should tell him to bring bagels. Everyone likes bagels. Saying something like this is socially acceptable, and encouraged, in my high school classes. Theoretically, it should be alright to say that here.

So I said, "You should bring us bagels!"

What happened next could never have been predicted.

Every single person in the class looked at me, completely confused. Until one girl said, "Bagels? Where the heck did that come from?"

I retorted with a quick, "Sorry about that, I just didn't have breakfast today!" (Note: at this point, it's about 1:30 in the afternoon.) but everybody laughed, so my lie (and it was a lie, I had a bagel for breakfast. So it was like a double lie.) worked.

But in my mind, I was thinking, "what the heck? I thought people loved bagels!" I'm not suggesting that all college students are bagel haters, but seriously, of all the things that are different between high school and college, the bagel incident shocked me about as much as the whole "professors who swear like truckers" and "it's okay to get on Facebook during class."

As if to make matters worse (this really has nothing to do with bagels), Pepper gave us a little assignment to work on during class, but me and my friend had no idea how to do it. So we spend the time speculating on how old we thought our professor was. The second the class discussion started, Pepper called on me to read out my answers...and I burst out laughing. It was this uncontrollable laugh attack for absolutely no reason. I am 100% sure my class thought I was on crack. It took all of the willpower I had contained in me to stop laughing. I don't know why I was laughing. But, it was really embarrassing.

Anyways, college is still fantastic. There are just little quirky thing's I'll miss about high school...but maybe it's the quirky things about Timpview. The more I talk to other people about their high schools, I realize how strangely unique Timpview is. Name one other school that has held a walk-out. Yep, that's what I thought.

Well, life is good! haha.

Haha, that's funny. I guess that makes us hipsters: we were staging walkouts before it was cool.
