entry 9? : rain, oncoming storm
A friend wrote in her journal:
But something saddens me. To the worst degree. Evidently, Christine's parents said that if she has to go to summer school, she has to go to Dixie next year. I hate Dixie. With a passion. I know I am being stereotypical but I have a reason to be. I have had horrible experiences with Dixie people. I can't trust them. I don't like them. I don't want to be around them. But then, I am like that with most anyone. I have problems with a lot of my 'so-called' friends who go there. They turned on me and I made enemies of them and they hate me and I hate them and now they are all druggies and sluts and whores and I am, well, me. Christine. Damn, she is a smart girl. She could go somewhere with her mind. She has the aptitude to achieve something far beyond anyone I know. She's gonna be famous someday. But... I just don't think the education they give at Dixie is for her. She has been in advanced classes for as long as I've known her. If she goes to Dixie, she's gonna be bored and boredom leaves room for other things. I'm just afraid that if Christine follows the Dixie crowd, she's gonna become just like the people that I hate. She's too good for Dixie. She has much more than what Dixie can offer. Dixie is a bad school for her. I am tempted to talk to her mom about it because I will do anything to see that she does not end up there. I would have killed myself if I had to go to Dixie, which I was so close to goind there last year. I don't think she needs to throw her life and her future away by going to Dixie. Dixie is not a bad school, educational-wise. It provides people with the education that they need to be successful. But after what Christine has already had, she does not deserve to fall down a bunch of rungs on a ladder. I know I am being so stereotypical of schools, but ya know, stereotypes always start with a touch of the truth and I don't care if there are good kids that go there. The 40 kids that I met weeks ago were not, and almost all of them were from Dixie.
I'm so tired.
