I thought that I was going to be happy continuing to stay in the Emerald League since I found out that one of my friends had passed away on Easter Sunday, but… sometime between yesterday evening and now I’m in the top seven of the Emerald League and on track to be promoted from it unless someone manages to bump me down several places at the last possible minute (or two, or three). German has become slightly less difficult to learn as I’ve continued to make progress in it, although I continue to be a Rookie in both French and German. I’m pretty sure that I know more French and German than I ever learned Spanish two courses into high school, but that might have something to do with how horrible the district I graduated in is. With the exception of the most rudimentary things, I haven’t managed to hang onto anything that I “learned” the whole way through secondary school… and I did most of my own teaching myself, to myself, on my off time because it was like asking any of my teachers for help grievously inconvenienced them. Next year I’m sure people from my graduating class will begin planning what’s supposed to be our twenty-year reunion, and I’ve continued to make it clear that I don’t want to be invited to this because I don’t even want to be contacted by members of my graduating class. It’s actually in my permanent record at the high school that I’m not to be included in any alumni activities or contacted for reunions, or… well, contacted for any reason. The principal put that note in herself and so far, with graduation, I haven’t been contacted by anyone from my graduating class for almost all of the time I’ve spent a high school graduate. It is what it is at this point.
Well, it’s been an admirable effort so far…
