A Writing Exercise From School

Core group
Dinah Sanders

I don’t want to write about rain, so I won’t. [Yeah, I was a pretty pigheaded young girl.] I want somebody to spend time with. I’m tired of being alone. It doesn’t have to be a boyfriend, although that would be nice. I’m tired of spending all my time by myself, at home, with Jinx and Paul [my parents].

It would be so nice to have someone to hold, to whisper to in class, to go out with.

It seems like people expect me to want to be by myself.

[In retrospect, and certainly when I read things like this, I think it would have been better for me to have gone to public school for my junior and senior years of high school. I would have thrown fits about being forced to do it, but it would have been really good for me to have been in a school of over 1000 people instead of one of 80.]
