Today was okay. Nothing special happened at school. Surprise-surprise. I’m so far behind in Math. I don’t understand any of it. Damn. Came home and worked till 6:00 on homework. Mom took the transfer forms to the board today. We’ll have answer within 5 days. Oh, God, please let it be a “yes.” Kristina H. called me. Dr. Silber’s pissed her off. She’s really good at that.
