Wow, do I hate missing school. I haven’t actually been in class since Tuesday. I never get sick, but I guess I can’t say that anymore. The combination of a sinus infection, double ear infections, and strep throat can really do someone in, as I have very recently learned. To add to that, I am totally lost. I have looked at the lesson plans and finished my partner notes, but beyond that, I have no clue what I am supposed to do. I see that there are blog posts that I am supposed to have written, but I am quite confused about what I am supposed to write them about.
I have a plan of action though. I plan to go to school tomorrow, and ask all of my unanswered questions. Then, since we don’t have school on Tuesday, I’m going to try to complete all of my missing work. This is really the only class that I will have make up work in, so it shouldn’t be too stressful.
For the days I was actually at school this week, we began discussing tragedy. I personally love tragedies- they’re just so tragic. I love stories where bad things happen because they hold my attention. Don’t get me wrong, I like happy stories too, but I would take a story about a tragic event over something happy any day. Tragedies reveal truths about humanity that one would have trouble finding anywhere else. I really enjoyed the Wikipedia articles we read for our partner notes, and I look forward to learning more about tragedies.
