One time in high school I was waiting to talk to the Vice Principal and this other kid came in and sat down next to me. He said “What are you in for?” And I said “Oh, they just want to know if it’s cool if I miss my classes tomorrow to run sound and lights for a presentation in the auditorium. What are you in for?” and he said that he stabbed a kid with a screwdriver. I told him we led very different lives and he agreed.
my grade started out with 130 people which is normal for my school, but every year since seventh grade five people are expelled/asked to leave/ mysteriously vanished. Reasons vary from doing drugs to putting tape on a backpack. My friend was expelled because he missed too much school because he was in a mental institution and then our math teacher suspended him for not having his work done. But a kid who stabbed someone in the back of the neck with a pencil is still here. We're down to 105.
