Add to the building block of her forcing me not to write sci-fi or fantasy (she told me both ideas I had where off limits and she knew the work load I had that semester which made me even more pissed at her for denying me that). Yep it really was.
But I adapted. I used the short story collection instead to write about soldiers in World War II (two characters, one America and one German from beginning of the war for both to end).
And she gave me a D for it.. don't know the reasons why other than the grade.
Not that I really care about the grade since for some odd reason the internships I worked under her magazines that counted somehow (they weren't supposed to and miraculously counted as a credit each) and suddenly they negated the D grade.
I think it was her way maybe making up for that and the loads of mistakes she piled onto me that semester.
But enough of that..
It was more the opposite for me Forbush Man when it came to chosing private schools over public. Academic had nothing to do with it.
I chose private over public because of the tramatic experiences I had in 6th grade (friends who I thought where friends weren't and let's just leave it at that) and honestly the two public schools in my area that had the upper level (6-8th) and a private one.
I chose private so I could start a new life and a attempt to recoup. Which I judge was a good thing cause they where the ones who said I was close to an utter breakdown.
So I guess I fill that special needs option then.
