Today I went to a trip, a trip with total number of thirty 8th graders. 8th graders are very interesting in being at beginning of teenage years. I am having very strange times.
The trip is from Chicago to New Jersey, yet in our first night we rest in Cleveland. The place we stay is the one of the most weird places I did spend the night which I am counting the the dorm turned from mortuary to a school. It was like a nightmare; I still remember the constant smell. However, this place doesn’t smell that bad it just makes me itch. In the sum, the problem isn’t the place. It is the kids I am having trouble with.
So if you ask me why I am here, because I am the mentor of the students. And well, for sure, if you ask me what the problematic thing is, I will say hmm… many things. Yes, many things are weird. These kids are too hard to handle! When I am soft and nice to them they start over reacting to rules. They will not listen nor behave. Ad when I go harsh with them, then they go all enemiesh. I heard two girls gossiping about me just because I told them to go to sleep.
And they have their own problems. One girl asked me if I called her stupid just because I told them that after 12AM it is hard to interpret. (which wasn’t even my idea, it was her friend’s idea, I was just agreeing to be polite). In that situations when you understand the kid has her own problems with you, man, just do not try that kid because things will get dirty. They are very talented in standing innocent.
Well, I hope the next days will be better. Now I need to sleep. Bye!
