I am not your average honor student. I am nowhere near perfect grades, perfect friends and a perfect school record. But I am an honors student nonetheless. Today I was in language arts, sitting semi-quietly at my desk. There were one of those college interns that observe classes staring at us and the teacher sent her out so she could take a break and get some coffee. Once she walked out a burst of noise exploded in the room. All the things we wanted to say poured out of us in relief. The second the teacher comes back in it goes so silent I would be able to hear a conversation from across the school. Soon, the teacher needs to leave again and the conversations continue, on and off for 45 min. Eventually I say, “We are like the best frickin’ actors in all the school!” I realize its sounds stupid once it comes out of my mouth, but by then everyone is clapping in cheering because it was the truth. Though the teacher had a really puzzled look on her face when she saw us grinning ear to ear when we had just been assigned a lot of homework. Oh well. Welcome to my world.
