    They are threatening to kick me out because i've missed three classes so far this year, all of them for sleeping past them. This doesn't strike me as anything close to a big deal. I still get good grades and i'm on their "high honors" list. I am tempted to tell them to just goto hell and kick me out, because I don't think I want to put up with them. I'm a senior at a college-prep boarding school. The only way I would be able to stay is if I kiss ass to this committe when they go and review my conduct, and I have too much pride to do that. I don't know if this seems like a wierd thing to put in the asylum, but if anyone has read posts of mine before I think all of my posts belong here.

    Go to the princepall and ask him if he has 5 minutes to talk to you for a 4 eyes conversation. He will tell you when and where, (dont get emotionally involved in it)and you will enter his office. Now go and tell him about the problems you have, ask him to be aware of your situation and that you are exerting efforts as much as possible to reduce these problems to a minimum and that they are all anxiety/stres(or fill in yourself to what problem) related.

    thats pretty much what i have to do to this committee
     
  4. It sounds like your health is severely affecting your ability to function. This has been ongoing for the last 4-6 months if I'm not mistaken. I'd continue to pursue these matters medically and in on-going counseling.

    I'd then have those specialist produce a write up for the school of what is happening to you.

    Dude, you're a senior and have little time left there. Just suck it up and plead your side to the committee. If you were careless enough to sleep in all these times, then you should be able to suck up your pride and explain to them what happened and that it won't happen again.

    What kind of school is this, that they KICK YOU OUT for missing three classes?
    Seems a bit harsh, doesn't it? Or is there something else?

    It's just some hardcore prep boarding school. They arent positively going to kick me out, but if I miss three more (six classes is still insane IMO) they definitely will kick me out. Right now it depends on my attitude (which they had no reason to question until now), and i'm not the kind of person to bend over or suck their dicks. As far as other reasons to kick me out, I'm not the most "active" person in the community but I do my work and dont do dumb shit.

    Well maybe all they're looking for is a bit of humility, a bit of "sorry, sir, I will try to do better" and then everyone's nice-nice again and you can graduate and wave goodbye to these losers and go on from there.

    Fuck these prep school shitbags. When the revolution comes, they'll be the first ones up against the wall.

    That being said, I think johan is right. Explain what happened, tell them that you're sorry and that you'll do better, and maybe even join a club or something and become more active, to show them that you're improving.

    Then get out and write a tattle tale book about all the debauchery, real or imagined, that went on in that place!

    Lockdown? What is that? Once you're 18, you're free. Actually, in Ga you're essentially an adult at 17. Don't know about SC. But don't blow your chances to get ahead by graduating from a prep school... you've already put in most of the time.

    its a "residential treatment center" where they have electromagnetically locked doors
    i went there for 11 months, its hell
    and while you're normally free once your 18, in special circumstances parents can get extended custody over chrildren until they are 21 and send them to even worse lockdowns in mexico/samoa where US laws dont apply (so they can beat you etc.)

    Dude, why in the hell do you think that they would be able to get that over you? Why would they? What were you in the "residential treatment center?" For substance abuse?

    No, they could not. Not if you aren't abusing drugs, if you aren't severely depressed, etc. Are you?

    Well man... you thinking about getting back on meds? Severe depression is nothing to play with, especially if its getting you back into school.
