June 13, 1967 - Tues
Today I had finals in English
and Music Appreciation. Nothing really hard. Tomorrow is my history
final. It's one of the rough ones but I just don't have the energy to study.
It's funny but after working all year, now when the final comes, I just
I don't think I've mentioned
my music appreciation class and it's pretty funny.
They had to bring in a second
grade teacher cause the original quit at the beginning of the year.
Mrs. Woodhouse loves operas and although she keeps telling us we're going to
study different types of music, here it is the end of the year and we're
still doing them.
The kids generally give her a
rough time. I was nearly kicked out of the class for playing poker
with a girl in the back of the room during one of her movies.
Although I complain quite a
bit I really don't mind the class too much. I do pretty good in it and
it's one of the rare classes where I feel at ease with the other students.
Today the teacher got a big
laugh out of one of my answers on the final. She asked for a
contemporary composer and I put down John Lennon. I was pressed for
time and I couldn't think of anyone else. I don't think it even
crossed her mind that I might be right, she just thought it was ridiculous.
As for the girl I mentioned,
don't get any ideas. She's a senior, a tom boy and she cusses and
swears. She just likes to hang out in the back of the room with some
other guys and me. I was however surprised by a conversation she had with one
of the other senior boys in the class. They never talk to each other in
class but from what I heard, they'd obviously had a previous relationship.
They were definitely mad at each other and they didn't realize I could hear
the conversation. She whispered to him, "Some guys just don't have
what it takes to please a girl". He responded by saying, "A guy has to
have something to work with if he's going to get it on".
I got a little depressed when
I heard it. It reminded me that there's a whole world out there
that I'm not part of. For some reason it made me feel left out and
even though they were arguing, I felt jealous. I
just don't have much going on in my life.
