It's summer. June 24th.
And I'm wearing jeans, a t-shirt, a long sleeve t-shirt, and a hooded sweatshirt. I am procrastinating from doing homework.
Everything is wrong with that picture. What is wrong with the weather! It's not supposed to be 50degrees F in the middle of June! It's supposed to be hot and sunny. Not cold, windy, and rainy! Today at camp, it was way too cold for the kids to even go swimming!
Also, I don't know what I was thinking when I signed up for summer school. I actually ended up dropping one of my classes, for a few different reasons. For one thing, I just didn't feel like devoting my entire summer to schoolwork. And secondly, I didn't trust the text book. It basically said that the Native Americans who were dragged from their homes to the Carlisle Indian School
, and other "Americanization" schools enjoyed the experience. Which is pretty much completely opposite to everything I learned in my History of Education class last semester. For example, here is a photo of a young Native American man before entering the school, and after entering the school
. He was completely transformed and "Americanized. (They didn't show that picture in the textbook, but I have seen it both in my high school US History textbook, and one of my education books). Since I couldn't trust the textbook, and I really had no desire to read it, and I wanted at least a little bit of free time, I dropped the class. (I don't know why I was signed up for two summer school classes anyway.)
