I missed school today. I had to go to Brooklyn to the DOE office today to verify my i-9. I couldn’t possibly go without missing school. They close at 5, and their web site says to get there before 4:30. No way could I manage that from Harlem. And, at my school they make it impossible to take a 1/2 day. You have to have a doctor’s note to miss school! They left me no choice but to lie and say I was sick. Really dumb policy on their part. When you have to be at work from 7:30am to 4:00pm you don’t have time to do anything before or after.
Anyway, they gave me a list of shit I need to do before I can start there. I think I will be able to get at least one more paycheck from my current school.
I made an appointment at a counseling office for today, too. I need some help.
