Overwhelmed

Omg I am so stressed out that it's not even funny. I only have 9 more days until I'm 19. 8 weeks and 1 day until graduation. 7 weeks and 5 days until prom. 9 weeks and 5 days until I go for a summer program at university. 13 weeks until soccer try outs. 6 weeks and like 6 days until exams and I'm not doing so good in my classes. I have a 74% in history which is good for me considering I really suck at history but I was hoping this would the year that I finally get on the honor roll. I'm getting a 75% in Challenge & Change when I was actually getting a 89% but that teacher hates me so much. She gave us a feminism opinion assignment and I got 60/100 and the thing was I spent 2 days on it and then I gave it to her and she said that I did it wrong so she made me do it again for the second time and then I emailed her it so it would get in on time and then she gives me a 60/100 and then pulled me to the side and told me to redo it again for the third time. I swear she just didn't like my opinion. Here are some comments she made she said "connect your facts, support back to your thesis in every paragraph. work on organization. check facts for accuracy" when I use websites that only go back from 2014-2016 because we just started 2017 so they wouldn't have the statistics yet. Then when I put "some even think that if you identify yourself as a feminist that it means you're weak." her t reply was "based on what?" then when I said "just because you are a feminist it doesn't mean you're weak it means that your stronger" she corrected your to you are so now it sounds "just because you are a feminist it doesn't mean you're weak it means you are stronger". Then when I put "some places still legislate our bodies" she replys "what does this mean?" like your suppose to be a teacher you should know. Oh then when I talked about how schools basically tell us females to cover up and guys can walk about school in muscle shirts all day without being told to cover up and how telling a female to cover take time out of their education my teachers reply was "or students could follow the dress code so no education time is lost". Us teenagers are going to fight the dress code because we have the freedom to wear whatever we want when we want but putting a dress code into place at school makes no sense because it's basically telling use kids and teenagers to be ashamed of our bodies and that we need to cover up. Then people wonder why kids aren't confident enough and why they have low self-esteem. I went on a website and it said that when us females get married people assume we will take the guys last name when they get assaulted or raped they feel ashamed and when I tried giving her an example she replies with "this example is confusing. I think it needs to be explained more clearly Not all women who take their husband's last name have been abused" I didn't say all females where abused before they took their busband's last name. She is just putting words into my mouth that I never said. Then when I put 1 in 3 Canadians don't know what sexual consent is. She told me expand on it and connect it to the thesis. Something else to is when I said that females have 20% less seats in congress she puts "so this means what?" Then I start talking about FGM she comments saying "I checked this site and it does not say this -> I have included handouts on FGM" the thing was I put the wrong website and when you check the website it talks about FGM. I even threw in a true story that happened and she puts "what or how is this connected to feminism?" and she circled as of 5 like I said it wrong or it wasn't suppose to be in there. Something else to is the fact that we had a midterm in that class and I spent 2 days on it and on the third day of working on it she wanted everyone to hand their midterms in when I wasn't done my midterm so I had to rush to get it done because she needed the marks in by the last day of the week and she wanted to hand them back. So I did a shitty job because she rushed me that's why my mark dropped so bad. In Human Growth & Development I'm getting a 65% here's the thing I was at a 75% and I swear this teacher doesn't like me either because I missed some days and she wouldn't go over any notes with me to make sure I understood anything. Then when it came to midterms I got a 60% because I didn't get to fully finish a question because it was faded so she allowed me to email her the second part of the question and she was suppose to tell me what I got on it but she never did. She was suppose to give me 5-6 extra marks on the midterm which I didn't get either. Then when it came to doing Map of Development I handed everything in on time and when I handed in Phase III which was the reflect of what we learnt about ourselfs I told her to let me know if I need to change anything or what not. She never even got back to me on if I needed to change things and then today I get it back to find out I got a 2+ which is 60-69%. She ends up commenting on the back of my Phase III saying "thank you for time time and effect that you put into Phase III of this reflection report you made some valuable points and insights into your personal development over the years. Don't be afraid to have your work edited by me before handing in your final 2 could have supported you in organzing your thoughts and helping you expand  your ideas a strong effect" when I asked her if she could look it over and tell me if there was anything that needed to be changed. Then when I went up to her desk to ask her how I could have gotten a level 3 she said that my report wasn't tree pages long, my ideas where all over the place and that I didn't connect any theories or concepts that we learnt in class or discussed in class in my report. Like if she said something to me earlier I would have made it longer so it was three pages, I would have organzied my ideas better and I would have connected more but how was I suppose to know if I don't get feedback on it until after you have already marked it and put the marks into the markbook.

    Perhaps, school is not for you. Don’t be so hard on yourself. School is not meant for everyone. Bill Gates dropped out. So did Steve Jobs. Seems like you will become a billionaire.

      I like school and all but I don’t want to be stuck in school for the rest of my life

        Come on, girl. 8 more weeks. After that, you can go bare feet and be pregnant.

          There is only 7 weeks and 4 days left. No one in my family ever went to College or University. My mother dropped out of high school in grade 10. My grandma ended up dropping out and then went back to high school and finished but never went to college or university. I see the way my family is struggling right now because they are having trouble finding jobs and paying bills and I don’t want to be in the same situation like them. Me and my boyfriend right now are complicated and he even said that he didn’t want kids right now.

        Sounds like you can think straight. If I were in your situation, I would try and get good grades in this final stretch of school. Then, head for enrolment in the US military. This is the best way to get trade skills and even a college education while Uncle Sam is taking care of your room and board. Put your boyfriend on the back-burner. Chances are, you could end up as a fighter-pilot and go on to fly the friendly skies as a commercial pilot with a big paycheck. Go girl! Make the family proud.

          I’m not really the one for military. I just feel like I haven’t found something that I love to do yet. I love acting, singing, drawing and helping people. My boyfriend is the only person that has ever cared about me and my decisions.

        No one ever finds the thing they love to do or the one soulmate they love – they find you. And when they do, you will know without any doubt in your heart that it’s true love. If you are the finder, then you will never be happy with whatever you find. So, use your head if you don’t want to get stuck with joblessness and struggling to pay bills. You don’t have to be in the military for life. Just join to get a free leg up to a better life. You need to break free from your social milieu like a black kid who must get out of the inner-city ghetto to become an Admiral of the US Navy or end up in prisons for the rest of his life.

          Me and my boyfriend’s relationship is no longer complicated. We have talked about getting our own place together after my first year of university.

          And I know it’s true love. He supports my decisions, he believes in me, he has been by my side there the good and the bad times. When we are together we can’t help but smile, laugh. We hardly fight at all and when we do we get upset and take a few hours to cool down and then we talk through it. He was willing to move 4 hours away to be with me so I decided to stay here for university to be with him. We talked about things that needs to change in our relationship, he is willing to give up his job when I go to university just to see me more. He has never given me a reason not to trust him, I can’t picture looking at another guy, I can’t picture being with any other guy, I don’t talk to guys, I hardly have guys on my facebook, I don’t talk to his friends because of what his ex girlfriend did to him. We have always kept our promises to each other. We spend sometime apart of each other but when we do we still talk to each other but we don’t ask who each other is hanging out or what each other is doing because we trust each other. We have talked about our future together. I have been to all his court days since he’s been arrested. When I do something my boyfriend doesn’t get jealous he says he’s proud of me and when he does something I don’t get jealous of him I say good job.
