Insights Into Teens: Episode 123 “Back To School Off The Cuff”

This week we go off script a bit to deal with some issues. First we talk about a series of deadly tornados that blew through our area and actually our town in the wake of hurricane Ida. We’ll talk a bit about how scary that was and the lingering anxiety of the experience. We’ll also talk about the disruption the storms caused to everyone’s life in the area last week which prevented us from recording our show during our regularly schedule time last week.

Then we’ll talk about some of the stress and anxiety of going back to school. We’ll address the underlying anxiety and fear for our safety about in person learning during the ongoing pandemic. We’ll look at some of the stress issues about having so many advanced courses and so little time to ourselves with Marching Band.

Finally we’ll talk about concerns and unresolved issues that are causing some stress and anxiety. We’ll look at ways to tackle some of the problems, cope with those we can solve and look at what the near future holds for us and hopefully resolve some of the tensions and anxieties from the last two weeks.

topics

0:01:26.159,0:01:30.640
from week to week here

0:01:27.840,0:01:33.040
we did miss last week we did not do a

0:01:30.640,0:01:35.840
podcast last week why did we not do a

0:01:33.040,0:01:37.680
podcast last week i had my first

0:01:35.840,0:01:41.119
marching band performance at the

0:01:37.680,0:01:43.280
football game right um our entire

0:01:41.119,0:01:45.600
schedule was disrupted last week because

0:01:43.280,0:01:49.520
of the storms that blew through

0:01:45.600,0:01:51.840
yep the remnants of hurricane ida

0:01:49.520,0:01:54.640
and we actually had a tornado blow

0:01:51.840,0:01:57.680
through our town fortunately for us it

0:01:54.640,0:01:59.200
was on the other side of town

0:01:57.680,0:02:01.680
unfortunately for the folks on the other

0:01:59.200,0:02:03.840
side of town it was on their side

0:02:01.680,0:02:06.960
but that wound up

0:02:03.840,0:02:09.360
causing some schedule disruptions

0:02:06.960,0:02:10.959
uh so we’ll talk about those

0:02:09.360,0:02:11.760
uh we’ll talk about the storm a little

0:02:10.959,0:02:14.959
bit

0:02:11.760,0:02:17.920
um we’re going to talk about

0:02:14.959,0:02:19.599
um just general things you know you this

0:02:17.920,0:02:22.239
was your first week back to school first

0:02:19.599,0:02:24.319
week in high school right so we’re going

0:02:22.239,0:02:26.080
to talk about uh

0:02:24.319,0:02:28.480
some of the stuff with schools some of

0:02:26.080,0:02:29.840
the issues you ran into

0:02:28.480,0:02:31.120
and then we’re going to talk about some

0:02:29.840,0:02:32.959
concerns

0:02:31.120,0:02:35.200
some certainly some concerns that i have

0:02:32.959,0:02:36.879
maybe some concerns that you have

0:02:35.200,0:02:38.720
and just kind of talk through some of

0:02:36.879,0:02:40.959
the stuff because it’s been kind of the

0:02:38.720,0:02:42.959
last two weeks have been kind of a

0:02:40.959,0:02:46.160
emotional rollercoaster i guess you

0:02:42.959,0:02:49.200
could say yeah so things have been crazy

0:02:46.160,0:02:51.440
hectic emotions have been running high

0:02:49.200,0:02:52.959
expectations are running high so i think

0:02:51.440,0:02:55.200
it’s tying you know it’s a good

0:02:52.959,0:02:57.200
opportunity for us to

0:02:55.200,0:02:59.599
kind of tone it down a little bit you

0:02:57.200,0:03:02.560
know usually our podcaster directed it

0:02:59.599,0:03:04.159
at our audience to try and help them out

0:03:02.560,0:03:06.080
but i think we kind of need a little

0:03:04.159,0:03:09.200
decompression

0:03:06.080,0:03:10.879
uh podcast for ourselves this week so

0:03:14.239,0:03:18.400

0:04:14.640,0:04:18.440
shall we get started

0:04:16.160,0:04:23.680
we shall all right let’s do it

0:04:18.440,0:04:25.360
[Music]

0:04:23.680,0:04:27.520
so first up

0:04:25.360,0:04:28.880
one let’s talk about the storm for for a

0:04:27.520,0:04:30.639
little bit because i’ll be honest with

0:04:28.880,0:04:32.160
you i’m

0:04:30.639,0:04:34.720
personally i’m still a little freaked

0:04:32.160,0:04:37.840
out about the storm itself

0:04:34.720,0:04:38.800
so we had remnants of hurricane ida blow

0:04:37.840,0:04:40.400
through

0:04:38.800,0:04:43.919
tons and tons of rain we had flooding

0:04:40.400,0:04:46.720
all over the place but what probably had

0:04:43.919,0:04:47.919
the most direct effect on us

0:04:46.720,0:04:51.040
were

0:04:47.919,0:04:53.680
a string of tornadoes that came through

0:04:51.040,0:04:55.520
one of which came right through our town

0:04:53.680,0:04:56.800
and we happened to be huddled down in

0:04:55.520,0:04:58.560
the basement at the time like we’re

0:04:56.800,0:05:00.240
supposed to be

0:04:58.560,0:05:02.560
and um

0:05:00.240,0:05:03.680
we have security cameras outside of our

0:05:02.560,0:05:05.199
house

0:05:03.680,0:05:08.639
we have security cameras inside of our

0:05:05.199,0:05:11.360
house too but that’s a different story

0:05:08.639,0:05:13.280
um we had cameras outside our house and

0:05:11.360,0:05:15.039
when the tornado was actually blowing

0:05:13.280,0:05:17.919
through town

0:05:15.039,0:05:19.199
i could actually see the cloud mass of

0:05:17.919,0:05:20.800
the turning i couldn’t see the funnel

0:05:19.199,0:05:23.520
cloud but i could see the cloud mass of

0:05:20.800,0:05:26.080
the tordeno in the distance

0:05:23.520,0:05:27.759
while you guys were downstairs with me

0:05:26.080,0:05:28.560
wow um

0:05:27.759,0:05:30.960
which

0:05:28.560,0:05:33.680
was very scary for me what are your

0:05:30.960,0:05:35.520
impressions of having to

0:05:33.680,0:05:37.280
sit down there and listen because we had

0:05:35.520,0:05:38.400
the news on the weather was going we

0:05:37.280,0:05:40.080
were getting all the alerts on our

0:05:38.400,0:05:42.479
phones and everything

0:05:40.080,0:05:44.479
give me your impressions of of what you

0:05:42.479,0:05:47.280
thought well first of all

0:05:44.479,0:05:49.919
i’m not one for storms i normally can’t

0:05:47.280,0:05:51.360
even handle lightning storms because i

0:05:49.919,0:05:53.280
genuinely just get freaked out by

0:05:51.360,0:05:56.160
lightning and thunder

0:05:53.280,0:05:58.400
i don’t like those kinds of storms

0:05:56.160,0:06:00.720
and we had a lot of it uh during this

0:05:58.400,0:06:02.319
storm and whenever we go into the

0:06:00.720,0:06:05.120
basement

0:06:02.319,0:06:06.639
i know it’s a pretty strong storm

0:06:05.120,0:06:09.199
um

0:06:06.639,0:06:10.880
uh having to listen to the news where we

0:06:09.199,0:06:12.960
were kind of all huddled

0:06:10.880,0:06:14.720
in a way i kind of wanted to somewhat

0:06:12.960,0:06:17.280
block it out even though i knew it was

0:06:14.720,0:06:20.160
going on i kind of just wanted to keep

0:06:17.280,0:06:21.680
myself calm for the most part and to say

0:06:20.160,0:06:22.960
that everything was kind of going to be

0:06:21.680,0:06:24.880
okay

0:06:22.960,0:06:26.560
okay you know

0:06:24.880,0:06:28.800
and

0:06:26.560,0:06:31.360
were you successful

0:06:28.800,0:06:33.280
i feel i was i definitely don’t think i

0:06:31.360,0:06:34.560
definitely think it helped to keep me

0:06:33.280,0:06:36.960
calm

0:06:34.560,0:06:39.840
throughout the storm

0:06:36.960,0:06:43.039
i felt a bit better

0:06:39.840,0:06:44.400
keeping after that

0:06:43.039,0:06:46.240
and at least

0:06:44.400,0:06:48.240
although i knew what was going on i at

0:06:46.240,0:06:49.840
least tried to center my focus around

0:06:48.240,0:06:52.720
something different kind of like how i

0:06:49.840,0:06:53.759
normally do when things kind of scare me

0:06:52.720,0:06:55.759
so

0:06:53.759,0:06:59.120
well and we’ve been dealing with the

0:06:55.759,0:07:01.039
aftermath of that storm for instance

0:06:59.120,0:07:04.240
someone that i work with

0:07:01.039,0:07:07.120
uh in another nearby town their town was

0:07:04.240,0:07:09.120
hit very hard i mean entire houses

0:07:07.120,0:07:11.680
destroyed

0:07:09.120,0:07:13.840
and they had some damage to their houses

0:07:11.680,0:07:16.080
well fortunately they weren’t hurt

0:07:13.840,0:07:17.680
most of the people in their neighborhood

0:07:16.080,0:07:19.039
that were affected by it weren’t even in

0:07:17.680,0:07:22.479
their homes at the time because they

0:07:19.039,0:07:24.479
were away which was fortunate

0:07:22.479,0:07:26.479
but to see the kind of power like i’m

0:07:24.479,0:07:27.759
not big on storms either you know

0:07:26.479,0:07:28.639
there’s

0:07:27.759,0:07:31.199
i’m

0:07:28.639,0:07:32.960
i’m the type of person

0:07:31.199,0:07:34.400
i wouldn’t say i’m a control freak but i

0:07:32.960,0:07:37.039
like

0:07:34.400,0:07:37.919
i like having control over aspects of my

0:07:37.039,0:07:39.759
life

0:07:37.919,0:07:42.080
and things that are completely random

0:07:39.759,0:07:43.199
and outside of my control tend to scare

0:07:42.080,0:07:45.919
me

0:07:43.199,0:07:48.400
lightning for instance like i can take

0:07:45.919,0:07:49.919
all the precautions in the world

0:07:48.400,0:07:51.520
but if a lightning bolt’s going to hit

0:07:49.919,0:07:55.120
me there’s nothing that i can do about

0:07:51.520,0:07:57.120
it and that that randomness scares me

0:07:55.120,0:07:59.039
tornadoes are the same thing especially

0:07:57.120,0:08:00.400
as powerful because these were we

0:07:59.039,0:08:02.000
usually don’t get storms that are this

0:08:00.400,0:08:04.879
powerful yeah

0:08:02.000,0:08:06.560
and in in looking at some of the

0:08:04.879,0:08:08.240
news coverage of it after the fact that

0:08:06.560,0:08:09.759
i i had seen some really alarming

0:08:08.240,0:08:10.639
statistics

0:08:09.759,0:08:14.879
one

0:08:10.639,0:08:17.120
analysis had actually talked about

0:08:14.879,0:08:19.280
the town that was near us called mullica

0:08:17.120,0:08:21.440
hill that had gotten him the really

0:08:19.280,0:08:24.160
powerful tornado

0:08:21.440,0:08:26.960
they said the debris from the houses in

0:08:24.160,0:08:29.039
that town were thrown as far as 20 000

0:08:26.960,0:08:31.759
feet into the air

0:08:29.039,0:08:35.360
and landed in bucks county pennsylvania

0:08:31.759,0:08:37.919
which is about a 40-minute drive from us

0:08:35.360,0:08:40.560
wow that’s how powerful the storm was

0:08:37.919,0:08:42.800
that blew through so it’s really scary

0:08:40.560,0:08:45.680
thinking that something like that

0:08:42.800,0:08:47.040
came so close to us yeah

0:08:45.680,0:08:48.880
um

0:08:47.040,0:08:50.560
but fortunately like i said you know we

0:08:48.880,0:08:53.120
came out of that so

0:08:50.560,0:08:56.399
with without any any issues or anything

0:08:53.120,0:08:59.200
but it did affect stuff in town so your

0:08:56.399,0:09:01.519
first performance for marching band was

0:08:59.200,0:09:03.760
supposed to be thursday tell us what

0:09:01.519,0:09:07.200
happened with that it ended up getting

0:09:03.760,0:09:09.360
pushed back due to the weather to friday

0:09:07.200,0:09:11.839
um guessing they still had to work

0:09:09.360,0:09:13.120
things out because the storm hit us on a

0:09:11.839,0:09:14.480
when well

0:09:13.120,0:09:16.480
technically

0:09:14.480,0:09:18.480
yeah it was wednesday

0:09:16.480,0:09:20.720
um and i was technically supposed to

0:09:18.480,0:09:22.640
have another practice then but

0:09:20.720,0:09:24.800
um we ended up ducking out because we

0:09:22.640,0:09:26.320
knew the storm was coming and i guess

0:09:24.800,0:09:28.959
enough people ducked out to the point

0:09:26.320,0:09:32.320
where they completely canceled it

0:09:28.959,0:09:33.519
um and then on thursday um

0:09:32.320,0:09:35.360
around

0:09:33.519,0:09:37.920
one ish maybe

0:09:35.360,0:09:39.440
uh mommy got the notification saying

0:09:37.920,0:09:40.959
that uh

0:09:39.440,0:09:42.640
uh the uh

0:09:40.959,0:09:45.279
our first performance was moved to

0:09:42.640,0:09:46.800
friday because of the storm right

0:09:45.279,0:09:48.720
so

0:09:46.800,0:09:50.720
wednesday i had been watching the news

0:09:48.720,0:09:52.080
the weather forecast most of the

0:09:50.720,0:09:53.760
afternoon

0:09:52.080,0:09:55.680
and i had texted mommy and said look i

0:09:53.760,0:09:57.360
don’t want to send you to

0:09:55.680,0:09:58.480
marching band practice

0:09:57.360,0:10:00.480
because

0:09:58.480,0:10:01.839
the worst of the storm was going to hit

0:10:00.480,0:10:03.279
literally when you were showing up for

0:10:01.839,0:10:04.800
marching band and i didn’t want to

0:10:03.279,0:10:05.600
chance it i’d rather have you home with

0:10:04.800,0:10:07.200
us

0:10:05.600,0:10:09.680
so that’s why you didn’t go and then we

0:10:07.200,0:10:12.000
got a notification after mommy notified

0:10:09.680,0:10:13.839
your your director

0:10:12.000,0:10:15.519
that we weren’t sending you

0:10:13.839,0:10:17.040
shortly after that he sent out a

0:10:15.519,0:10:19.040
notification saying it was cancelled so

0:10:17.040,0:10:21.600
i have to assume a lot of other parents

0:10:19.040,0:10:23.920
had pulled their kids out too yeah

0:10:21.600,0:10:25.440
so they moved the football game and this

0:10:23.920,0:10:27.200
was the the

0:10:25.440,0:10:29.440
i guess opening game the first game of

0:10:27.200,0:10:31.200
the of the season for the high school

0:10:29.440,0:10:33.760
to friday

0:10:31.200,0:10:36.079
and uh you had to be there for the

0:10:33.760,0:10:37.680
early to get set up and and prep for the

0:10:36.079,0:10:40.560
game and everything

0:10:37.680,0:10:42.320
mommy and daddy went to the game which i

0:10:40.560,0:10:43.519
was you know joking around saying that’s

0:10:42.320,0:10:45.440
the first

0:10:43.519,0:10:47.120
high school football game that i’ve been

0:10:45.440,0:10:48.720
to since i was playing high school

0:10:47.120,0:10:50.640
football yeah

0:10:48.720,0:10:53.680
and it was interesting tell us what your

0:10:50.640,0:10:56.720
impression was of the performance tell

0:10:53.680,0:10:59.440
us what you did and how you liked it

0:10:56.720,0:11:01.279
so um basically

0:10:59.440,0:11:03.360
uh we were going to be playing in the

0:11:01.279,0:11:05.279
halftime show and we were only going to

0:11:03.360,0:11:06.399
be performing performing the first

0:11:05.279,0:11:08.560
movement

0:11:06.399,0:11:09.839
that was the three right yeah first of

0:11:08.560,0:11:11.839
three

0:11:09.839,0:11:13.600
uh and

0:11:11.839,0:11:16.800
um

0:11:13.600,0:11:20.240
while we were in the stands for the

0:11:16.800,0:11:22.560
first second and fourth quarter we

0:11:20.240,0:11:25.680
actually played stan tunes

0:11:22.560,0:11:27.920
which were basically just like

0:11:25.680,0:11:30.399
tunes we kind of had that we were just

0:11:27.920,0:11:33.360
gonna be playing whenever

0:11:30.399,0:11:36.240
someone scored or whenever the team like

0:11:33.360,0:11:37.360
went out and stuff like rally songs wipe

0:11:36.240,0:11:39.040
out and

0:11:37.360,0:11:40.959
you know crowd things to get the crowd

0:11:39.040,0:11:43.360
into the game yeah

0:11:40.959,0:11:46.000
okay so did you like that

0:11:43.360,0:11:48.880
yeah um i didn’t originally know all of

0:11:46.000,0:11:50.880
the songs um but it was a

0:11:48.880,0:11:52.800
nice way to keep me still kind of

0:11:50.880,0:11:55.600
invested

0:11:52.800,0:11:57.440
um and i did eventually learn start

0:11:55.600,0:11:58.880
learning a lot of them and it was

0:11:57.440,0:12:00.480
actually kind of fun

0:11:58.880,0:12:02.000
now the other thing you guys did was you

0:12:00.480,0:12:03.519
played the national anthem at the

0:12:02.000,0:12:05.200
beginning of the game too which was

0:12:03.519,0:12:07.360
really well done i have to say i was

0:12:05.200,0:12:08.800
really impressed with it yeah how did

0:12:07.360,0:12:11.120
that make you feel getting to play the

0:12:08.800,0:12:13.279
national anthem it was the first time

0:12:11.120,0:12:15.440
i’ve ever actually played it i’ve heard

0:12:13.279,0:12:16.720
it multiple times um

0:12:15.440,0:12:19.200
and that was kind of the first time i

0:12:16.720,0:12:20.880
really played it which was kind of nice

0:12:19.200,0:12:22.800
now that was the whole band there or did

0:12:20.880,0:12:24.800
you have some missing members

0:12:22.800,0:12:27.519
i’m not sure but there were a decent

0:12:24.800,0:12:30.639
amount of people so we still did stand

0:12:27.519,0:12:32.639
tunes and uh the halftime performance

0:12:30.639,0:12:34.560
so let’s talk about the halftime

0:12:32.639,0:12:37.680
performance

0:12:34.560,0:12:39.760
you guys weren’t in full uniform

0:12:37.680,0:12:41.920
how were you guys dressed and

0:12:39.760,0:12:44.959
how did the whole performance go they’d

0:12:41.920,0:12:46.800
given us uh marching band polos and told

0:12:44.959,0:12:48.639
us to wear black pants and black shoes

0:12:46.800,0:12:50.000
if we had them

0:12:48.639,0:12:51.920
um

0:12:50.000,0:12:53.680
so that was kind of the uniform we had

0:12:51.920,0:12:57.360
we also had a shirts tucked in to make

0:12:53.680,0:12:58.880
us look slightly more um in form which

0:12:57.360,0:13:01.760
i gotta say i actually kind of like the

0:12:58.880,0:13:03.360
polo yeah you looked really good in it

0:13:01.760,0:13:06.560
so everyone looked really good it’s a

0:13:03.360,0:13:09.760
nice looking uh shirt yeah

0:13:06.560,0:13:11.920
um so preparing for uh the halftime show

0:13:09.760,0:13:13.600
we actually went back behind the stands

0:13:11.920,0:13:16.399
and did uh

0:13:13.600,0:13:18.399
some warm-up uh songs and then we kind

0:13:16.399,0:13:21.360
of got in line with

0:13:18.399,0:13:23.600
partners for an ark because we had

0:13:21.360,0:13:26.000
spaced it out before

0:13:23.600,0:13:28.560
uh we were tuned

0:13:26.000,0:13:29.680
then by the time they said they told us

0:13:28.560,0:13:32.639
to come out

0:13:29.680,0:13:34.880
we went into the ark in a unified form

0:13:32.639,0:13:37.600
um played

0:13:34.880,0:13:38.639
one of the lip slurs and then went into

0:13:37.600,0:13:39.680
um

0:13:38.639,0:13:40.959
getting ready for the halftime

0:13:39.680,0:13:43.279
performance

0:13:40.959,0:13:45.279
now mommy and i both had an opportunity

0:13:43.279,0:13:47.680
to watch from the stands

0:13:45.279,0:13:49.440
uh the halftime performance and it looks

0:13:47.680,0:13:52.240
like you guys get about 12 minutes to

0:13:49.440,0:13:54.399
perform at half time

0:13:52.240,0:13:56.079
and

0:13:54.399,0:13:57.760
didn’t take obviously since you were

0:13:56.079,0:13:59.199
only performing one of the one of the

0:13:57.760,0:14:00.880
three movements you didn’t take up the

0:13:59.199,0:14:02.720
whole time

0:14:00.880,0:14:04.160
and the it was what was amazing really

0:14:02.720,0:14:05.600
was watching the picture get all that

0:14:04.160,0:14:07.360
equipment out there and get set up in

0:14:05.600,0:14:09.920
such a short time it literally looked

0:14:07.360,0:14:13.120
like a pick for what a nascar race

0:14:09.920,0:14:15.440
uh so total props to the the pickfru for

0:14:13.120,0:14:17.519
the dedication they had there yeah and i

0:14:15.440,0:14:20.240
remember how long it would take for them

0:14:17.519,0:14:21.839
to set up normally whenever we when we

0:14:20.240,0:14:23.680
had actually

0:14:21.839,0:14:27.040
uh performed it

0:14:23.680,0:14:28.160
uh together with pitt um on tuesday so

0:14:27.040,0:14:29.680
how do you how did you like the

0:14:28.160,0:14:31.680
performance do you think you guys did

0:14:29.680,0:14:33.040
well do you think you need

0:14:31.680,0:14:34.959
improvement do you think you’re ready

0:14:33.040,0:14:36.639
for show time at this point

0:14:34.959,0:14:39.120
i mean it was only the first movement

0:14:36.639,0:14:40.959
and i definitely say i think we could

0:14:39.120,0:14:42.399
have done better but overall for our

0:14:40.959,0:14:43.680
first performance i don’t think it was

0:14:42.399,0:14:45.360
all that bad

0:14:43.680,0:14:46.800
was there anything in particular that

0:14:45.360,0:14:48.560
you found

0:14:46.800,0:14:49.920
challenging or difficult like did you

0:14:48.560,0:14:51.360
have

0:14:49.920,0:14:53.040
this is the first time you performed in

0:14:51.360,0:14:54.800
front of an audience right

0:14:53.040,0:14:56.560
how was that i mean that’s usually the

0:14:54.800,0:14:57.680
biggest challenge in that first

0:14:56.560,0:15:01.120
performance

0:14:57.680,0:15:02.959
yeah um i tried at my best not to really

0:15:01.120,0:15:05.440
think about it too much and kind of just

0:15:02.959,0:15:07.600
go through the sets in my head

0:15:05.440,0:15:09.600
which definitely did help um i

0:15:07.600,0:15:12.880
definitely had to try like staying in

0:15:09.600,0:15:14.720
form for the entire time um it’ll be

0:15:12.880,0:15:16.480
interesting to see how we put the entire

0:15:14.720,0:15:18.079
show together because

0:15:16.480,0:15:20.000
you know you kind of need the endurance

0:15:18.079,0:15:22.480
to do it the entire time

0:15:20.000,0:15:25.680
yeah yeah the closest thing i think i’ve

0:15:22.480,0:15:27.040
ever had was performing in concert choir

0:15:25.680,0:15:28.560
in high school

0:15:27.040,0:15:31.279
and the advantage that i had was that

0:15:28.560,0:15:33.040
was always indoors in the auditorium so

0:15:31.279,0:15:34.560
when you’re up on stage they’ve got all

0:15:33.040,0:15:36.240
the stage lights on you so you can’t

0:15:34.560,0:15:37.759
even see the audience you’re so blinded

0:15:36.240,0:15:39.440
by the light

0:15:37.759,0:15:41.440
so you know they’re out there but you

0:15:39.440,0:15:43.279
don’t see them so you don’t get as

0:15:41.440,0:15:45.120
nervous i think

0:15:43.279,0:15:46.240
but you guys don’t have that advantage i

0:15:45.120,0:15:48.000
mean you guys are out there in the

0:15:46.240,0:15:49.600
middle of the field you’ve got an

0:15:48.000,0:15:52.240
audience behind you you’ve got an

0:15:49.600,0:15:54.800
audience in front of you

0:15:52.240,0:15:55.759
did the did the band director give you

0:15:54.800,0:15:58.399
any

0:15:55.759,0:16:00.160
suggestions or ways to handle the

0:15:58.399,0:16:02.560
nervousness or anything like that did he

0:16:00.160,0:16:04.800
anticipate that i think he just told us

0:16:02.560,0:16:06.880
he never really like specifically said

0:16:04.800,0:16:08.320
it’s he’s just like make sure you

0:16:06.880,0:16:10.480
perform this that’s right and that’s

0:16:08.320,0:16:12.160
kind of it so just just sort of stick to

0:16:10.480,0:16:14.959
the planning you should be fine and to

0:16:12.160,0:16:17.360
be honest like the

0:16:14.959,0:16:19.440
the amount of like

0:16:17.360,0:16:21.040
stuff we need to think about whenever

0:16:19.440,0:16:23.120
we’re moving like getting into the right

0:16:21.040,0:16:24.959
sets using the right step size is making

0:16:23.120,0:16:26.800
sure you’re playing the music it was

0:16:24.959,0:16:28.639
enough to make us kind of stop thinking

0:16:26.800,0:16:30.480
of it was enough to at least make me

0:16:28.639,0:16:32.480
kind of stop thinking about the audience

0:16:30.480,0:16:34.800
that was there and kind of it was just a

0:16:32.480,0:16:36.720
regular performance that’s good i mean

0:16:34.800,0:16:38.079
so it’s almost automatic for you at that

0:16:36.720,0:16:40.160
point because your brain’s trying to do

0:16:38.079,0:16:41.519
so many things at once yeah

0:16:40.160,0:16:43.680
did you have fun

0:16:41.519,0:16:45.519
yeah i did um

0:16:43.680,0:16:48.320
i was really my legs were kind of

0:16:45.519,0:16:50.959
shaking um in the beginning and it

0:16:48.320,0:16:53.680
honestly went by quicker than i expected

0:16:50.959,0:16:55.839
so did anything unexpected happen or did

0:16:53.680,0:16:59.040
it kind of go sort of like you expected

0:16:55.839,0:17:01.199
it to it went all right um no one

0:16:59.040,0:17:04.079
tripped or got hit which

0:17:01.199,0:17:05.439
uh they actually said was a big feat um

0:17:04.079,0:17:07.600
for the first

0:17:05.439,0:17:09.679
uh performance especially considering

0:17:07.600,0:17:11.360
the fact this was like the

0:17:09.679,0:17:14.880
this is like the earliest they’ve ever

0:17:11.360,0:17:16.880
performed right right um so that was

0:17:14.880,0:17:18.400
just the first time the entire band was

0:17:16.880,0:17:19.600
together doing everything at once

0:17:18.400,0:17:21.360
because i know color garbage is out

0:17:19.600,0:17:23.120
there with you too right yeah color

0:17:21.360,0:17:25.760
guard had actually been with us a couple

0:17:23.120,0:17:27.919
of times and pitt was only with us for

0:17:25.760,0:17:29.679
uh tuesday i believe

0:17:27.919,0:17:31.120
um

0:17:29.679,0:17:33.280
so

0:17:31.120,0:17:36.080
so we had done it like once we had done

0:17:33.280,0:17:37.600
it like a couple times all together but

0:17:36.080,0:17:40.320
it was nice doing it in front of the

0:17:37.600,0:17:41.679
audience nice nice so it sounds like it

0:17:40.320,0:17:44.640
was overall it was a pretty good

0:17:41.679,0:17:45.919
experience then yeah sweet

0:17:44.640,0:17:47.280

welcome back to insights into teens

0:19:04.320,0:19:09.520
we’re going off the cuff today talking a

0:19:06.720,0:19:11.679
little bit about last couple of weeks in

0:19:09.520,0:19:13.440
kind of taking it easy this week so

0:19:11.679,0:19:15.440
let’s talk a little about back to school

0:19:13.440,0:19:17.679
this was your first week back to school

0:19:15.440,0:19:19.200
you started on tuesday

0:19:17.679,0:19:21.120
um

0:19:19.200,0:19:23.280
how did it start out give us give us an

0:19:21.120,0:19:25.679
idea of how it started out

0:19:23.280,0:19:29.520
so we kind of started out a bit more

0:19:25.679,0:19:31.919
chaotic than i wanted so first of all

0:19:29.520,0:19:34.160
um we were going to be emailed our bus

0:19:31.919,0:19:35.840
passes um

0:19:34.160,0:19:37.440
so that you know we knew what time to

0:19:35.840,0:19:39.200
get on the bus and what bus we were

0:19:37.440,0:19:42.080
taking

0:19:39.200,0:19:44.720
but mommy never got the email

0:19:42.080,0:19:47.039
right and we believe it’s because

0:19:44.720,0:19:49.039
she didn’t fill out one of the forms on

0:19:47.039,0:19:51.280
genesis that she didn’t even get a

0:19:49.039,0:19:52.960
notification that she had which was the

0:19:51.280,0:19:54.320
last all right it was a last-minute form

0:19:52.960,0:19:55.679
and she never got notified that she had

0:19:54.320,0:19:57.919
to fill it out

0:19:55.679,0:20:00.000
yeah so it was kind of

0:19:57.919,0:20:01.760
we were kind of worried on monday but

0:20:00.000,0:20:03.760
the good thing was we actually had a

0:20:01.760,0:20:06.799
neighbor who was also in high school so

0:20:03.760,0:20:08.799
we went to them we got the time and we

0:20:06.799,0:20:10.000
figured hey everything was going to be

0:20:08.799,0:20:13.600
okay

0:20:10.000,0:20:14.720
so um i woke up we got prepared we went

0:20:13.600,0:20:15.600
out

0:20:14.720,0:20:18.320
and

0:20:15.600,0:20:20.400
we and um basically whenever i would go

0:20:18.320,0:20:21.840
to the bus at least when i was in middle

0:20:20.400,0:20:22.799
school

0:20:21.840,0:20:24.720
she

0:20:22.799,0:20:26.480
mommy would drive me up and i would just

0:20:24.720,0:20:29.919
stand at the bus stop

0:20:26.480,0:20:32.240
so me and the other kid donovan um

0:20:29.919,0:20:34.000
were kind of just sitting

0:20:32.240,0:20:36.240
kind of just standing out there waiting

0:20:34.000,0:20:37.360
for our bus to come by

0:20:36.240,0:20:40.159
um

0:20:37.360,0:20:41.440
and a few minutes go by to the point

0:20:40.159,0:20:42.960
where

0:20:41.440,0:20:45.440
we kind of realize it’s getting a bit

0:20:42.960,0:20:47.120
late it’s getting close to seven around

0:20:45.440,0:20:49.039
the time that i was supposed that i’m

0:20:47.120,0:20:51.039
supposed to be in school

0:20:49.039,0:20:54.080
um and donovan ends up actually going to

0:20:51.039,0:20:56.799
my mom saying that apparently um he had

0:20:54.080,0:20:59.200
a friend who was also on the same bus

0:20:56.799,0:21:01.360
um and he texted like

0:20:59.200,0:21:03.520
what’s going on and he’s and his friend

0:21:01.360,0:21:04.880
said that he was already at school oh

0:21:03.520,0:21:06.080
boy

0:21:04.880,0:21:08.159
so

0:21:06.080,0:21:10.559
we missed the bus kind of

0:21:08.159,0:21:12.880
okay so mommy but there was a bus at

0:21:10.559,0:21:15.760
some point yeah okay

0:21:12.880,0:21:18.400
so basically uh the good thing was mommy

0:21:15.760,0:21:19.919
was off that day so she was able to just

0:21:18.400,0:21:23.840
drop me off

0:21:19.919,0:21:25.600
um and apparently we weren’t the only uh

0:21:23.840,0:21:26.640
we weren’t the only ones who experienced

0:21:25.600,0:21:30.480
that

0:21:26.640,0:21:32.320
in fact traffic was jammed with people

0:21:30.480,0:21:34.720
dropping their kids off

0:21:32.320,0:21:35.919
so but your buff ride home was okay

0:21:34.720,0:21:38.559
right you didn’t have any problems with

0:21:35.919,0:21:41.120
that well

0:21:38.559,0:21:43.120
i was able to get home but i did kind of

0:21:41.120,0:21:45.200
have some issues

0:21:43.120,0:21:48.159
so during phys ed which was my last

0:21:45.200,0:21:50.480
period i decided that i needed to go and

0:21:48.159,0:21:52.080
find out which bus i was gonna take home

0:21:50.480,0:21:54.559
and i wasn’t the only kid there were

0:21:52.080,0:21:55.600
three other kids who also were having

0:21:54.559,0:21:56.840
issues

0:21:55.600,0:21:59.679
so

0:21:56.840,0:22:02.880
um uh all three of us went over to the

0:21:59.679,0:22:05.360
guidance office and um we’re hoping to

0:22:02.880,0:22:08.000
get our bus pass

0:22:05.360,0:22:10.080
but apparently we had to come earlier to

0:22:08.000,0:22:12.640
get our bus passes

0:22:10.080,0:22:14.880
and like they couldn’t give it to us at

0:22:12.640,0:22:17.440
the end of the day and when after the

0:22:14.880,0:22:19.760
bell rang they said go to the bus

0:22:17.440,0:22:22.720
drivers and ask if they’re if they stop

0:22:19.760,0:22:24.880
on your stop so you had to go survey the

0:22:22.720,0:22:28.799
bus drivers to see if they stop at your

0:22:24.880,0:22:31.440
bus stop yeah um but the good thing

0:22:28.799,0:22:34.559
what a disorganized mess

0:22:31.440,0:22:37.440
uh but the good thing was um i

0:22:34.559,0:22:40.400
mommy had heard from donovan uh that

0:22:37.440,0:22:43.120
d10 was the bus he was supposed to take

0:22:40.400,0:22:45.039
so when i’d found d10 i asked if they

0:22:43.120,0:22:47.520
had stopped on my bus i didn’t ask any

0:22:45.039,0:22:50.559
of the other ones they said yes and i

0:22:47.520,0:22:52.880
was able to get on and get home wow

0:22:50.559,0:22:55.039
so that was day one well at least with

0:22:52.880,0:22:57.840
the buses so that was day one with the

0:22:55.039,0:23:01.600
buses has have the buses been okay since

0:22:57.840,0:23:03.600
then yeah um i learned that i learned

0:23:01.600,0:23:06.320
yesterday

0:23:03.600,0:23:10.159
that so donovan uh was supposed to get

0:23:06.320,0:23:11.840
picked up around 6 35 um it sat on this

0:23:10.159,0:23:15.039
bus pass

0:23:11.840,0:23:16.960
apparently they pick us up at 6 25.

0:23:15.039,0:23:18.559
that’s a significant difference

0:23:16.960,0:23:21.120
yeah

0:23:18.559,0:23:23.520
that’s 10 minutes different like did you

0:23:21.120,0:23:25.760
expect them to get like they’re like 10

0:23:23.520,0:23:27.440
minutes earlier than the actual time

0:23:25.760,0:23:29.760
apparently they do

0:23:27.440,0:23:32.000
yeah okay

0:23:29.760,0:23:35.120
so steady bus schedule now at least

0:23:32.000,0:23:38.000
right yeah um i’m able to take the bus

0:23:35.120,0:23:40.480
i was able to get take the pus to school

0:23:38.000,0:23:41.919
for yesterday and today and i’ve been

0:23:40.480,0:23:44.880
able to take it home

0:23:41.919,0:23:46.080
each day okay so hopefully that problem

0:23:44.880,0:23:48.320
is solved

0:23:46.080,0:23:50.320
so what was your overall impression so

0:23:48.320,0:23:51.919
far this week so you’ve got three days

0:23:50.320,0:23:53.840
under your belt now

0:23:51.919,0:23:55.760
how has been how’s it been

0:23:53.840,0:23:56.880
um

0:23:55.760,0:23:59.200
i think i’m

0:23:56.880,0:24:02.720
um it’s been

0:23:59.200,0:24:05.520
all right i’m not

0:24:02.720,0:24:07.919
i

0:24:05.520,0:24:10.720
it’s kind of complicated of course it is

0:24:07.919,0:24:12.799
it’s high school i mean yeah

0:24:10.720,0:24:14.320
um

0:24:12.799,0:24:15.919
we’ll get to the issues in the next

0:24:14.320,0:24:18.880
segment but what’s your initial

0:24:15.919,0:24:21.760
impression is it manageable is it

0:24:18.880,0:24:23.520
overwhelming is it scary is it

0:24:21.760,0:24:24.640
straightforward what’s your first

0:24:23.520,0:24:25.600
impression

0:24:24.640,0:24:27.360
uh

0:24:25.600,0:24:29.520
it sounds like it

0:24:27.360,0:24:31.120
is manageable for right now but that

0:24:29.520,0:24:32.640
it’s probably gonna get a bit harder

0:24:31.120,0:24:34.400
later on

0:24:32.640,0:24:37.440
and that’s probably what’s going to

0:24:34.400,0:24:39.840
happen which is typical yeah or do you

0:24:37.440,0:24:41.679
have any immediate concerns about any of

0:24:39.840,0:24:42.640
your classes

0:24:41.679,0:24:45.200
um

0:24:42.640,0:24:47.760
just from first impressions

0:24:45.200,0:24:49.600
uh

0:24:47.760,0:24:50.960
i know your spanish class has some

0:24:49.600,0:24:54.159
interesting

0:24:50.960,0:24:55.279
hall pass rules tell us about those

0:24:54.159,0:24:56.720
um

0:24:55.279,0:24:59.440
so that’s kind of one of the only

0:24:56.720,0:25:01.200
classes that has mentioned it so far

0:24:59.440,0:25:04.720
apparently you’re only allowed to go to

0:25:01.200,0:25:07.520
the bathroom once a week in their class

0:25:04.720,0:25:09.679
what kind of prison rules is that

0:25:07.520,0:25:10.559
yeah and we were like given

0:25:09.679,0:25:12.960
uh

0:25:10.559,0:25:14.640
passes and we only have six passes for

0:25:12.960,0:25:16.559
the marking period

0:25:14.640,0:25:18.480
can you like sell them on ebay and make

0:25:16.559,0:25:20.720
money or something off of them i mean at

0:25:18.480,0:25:22.880
the end of the mocking period if we have

0:25:20.720,0:25:25.760
at least one that’s not checked off we

0:25:22.880,0:25:28.799
get five extra credit points so i guess

0:25:25.760,0:25:31.039
we kind of make something from it that’s

0:25:28.799,0:25:32.880
that’s a little draconian there

0:25:31.039,0:25:34.720
a little bit i can’t believe they’re

0:25:32.880,0:25:37.600
they’re going that route

0:25:34.720,0:25:40.080
i mean yeah i did for spanish class like

0:25:37.600,0:25:42.640
it’s not even a class that’s like like

0:25:40.080,0:25:44.080
physics or like your advanced math it’s

0:25:42.640,0:25:45.600
spanish class

0:25:44.080,0:25:47.840
it’s like i think your spanish teacher’s

0:25:45.600,0:25:50.080
taking her job a little too seriously

0:25:47.840,0:25:50.080
there

0:25:50.640,0:25:54.400
anyway

0:25:51.760,0:25:56.000
so what about concert band what happened

0:25:54.400,0:25:57.360
with concert band let’s talk about that

0:25:56.000,0:25:59.279
a little bit

0:25:57.360,0:26:02.000
yeah

0:25:59.279,0:26:03.200
concert band ain’t gonna happen this

0:26:02.000,0:26:05.120
year

0:26:03.200,0:26:07.520
so this one i kind of got a little ride

0:26:05.120,0:26:09.360
off about on yeah so

0:26:07.520,0:26:11.760
you were told from your guidance

0:26:09.360,0:26:13.679
counselor last year that if you wanted

0:26:11.760,0:26:15.440
to be in concert band

0:26:13.679,0:26:16.720
you would have to sacrifice your lunch

0:26:15.440,0:26:17.760
because it would be would be done at

0:26:16.720,0:26:19.440
your lunch

0:26:17.760,0:26:20.559
so when you got your schedule a couple

0:26:19.440,0:26:22.799
weeks ago

0:26:20.559,0:26:25.919
you didn’t have concert band but you did

0:26:22.799,0:26:27.679
have lunch so mommy reached out found

0:26:25.919,0:26:29.679
out that well you couldn’t have concert

0:26:27.679,0:26:31.919
band because it was the last period of

0:26:29.679,0:26:35.760
the day and that’s your gym period uh

0:26:31.919,0:26:36.559
that no that was physics physics physics

0:26:35.760,0:26:37.840
and

0:26:36.559,0:26:39.679
there wasn’t anything they could do

0:26:37.840,0:26:43.039
about it

0:26:39.679,0:26:43.039
and i thought that was kind of

0:26:43.360,0:26:46.559
unfair

0:26:44.720,0:26:48.320
you know the fact that that you were

0:26:46.559,0:26:49.440
told one thing and then something else

0:26:48.320,0:26:52.720
happened

0:26:49.440,0:26:55.200
so i wrote a

0:26:52.720,0:26:58.080
let’s call it passionate letter

0:26:55.200,0:27:00.480
to your guidance counselor and to the

0:26:58.080,0:27:03.039
administrative staff of the school

0:27:00.480,0:27:04.840
to which i’ve still not gotten an

0:27:03.039,0:27:07.600
acknowledgement a

0:27:04.840,0:27:10.320
reply they’ve not told me off they’ve

0:27:07.600,0:27:11.840
not gotten i’ve not gotten anything

0:27:10.320,0:27:14.720
which tells me that

0:27:11.840,0:27:17.200
as open and

0:27:14.720,0:27:20.399
interested in communication as they

0:27:17.200,0:27:22.000
pretended to be during orientation

0:27:20.399,0:27:23.520
they don’t want to hear about problems

0:27:22.000,0:27:25.039
they only want to get pats on the back

0:27:23.520,0:27:27.039
apparently

0:27:25.039,0:27:28.080
so i’m guessing that’s how school’s

0:27:27.039,0:27:29.760
going to go

0:27:28.080,0:27:31.120
and we’re just going to have to deal

0:27:29.760,0:27:33.039
with it at this point in time and i’ll

0:27:31.120,0:27:35.760
have to find some other way maybe i have

0:27:33.039,0:27:37.840
to reach out to the board of education

0:27:35.760,0:27:39.120
instead of the principle and the vice

0:27:37.840,0:27:41.520
principles since i’m not getting

0:27:39.120,0:27:42.559
anything from them

0:27:41.520,0:27:44.159
so

0:27:42.559,0:27:45.919
well you know i just

0:27:44.159,0:27:48.159
it was worth mentioning that this was

0:27:45.919,0:27:49.679
something that you were supposed to get

0:27:48.159,0:27:52.240
you didn’t get

0:27:49.679,0:27:53.440
um and the the one thing

0:27:52.240,0:27:56.159
the

0:27:53.440,0:27:59.039
the reason you didn’t get it

0:27:56.159,0:28:00.799
became glaringly obvious when we went to

0:27:59.039,0:28:04.240
orientation

0:28:00.799,0:28:05.279
and how there’s almost zero focus on the

0:28:04.240,0:28:06.559
arts

0:28:05.279,0:28:08.960
from the school

0:28:06.559,0:28:12.960
and everybody seems to be focused on

0:28:08.960,0:28:13.919
scholastic or focused on athletics

0:28:12.960,0:28:16.640
which

0:28:13.919,0:28:18.480
really is a terrible disservice to the

0:28:16.640,0:28:21.919
students of that school

0:28:18.480,0:28:24.080
because the likelihood of kids

0:28:21.919,0:28:26.760
making anything out of themselves from a

0:28:24.080,0:28:28.480
scholastic standpoint is statistically

0:28:26.760,0:28:31.360
insignificant

0:28:28.480,0:28:33.760
from a professional standpoint

0:28:31.360,0:28:35.679
compared to scholastic

0:28:33.760,0:28:37.440
or compared to

0:28:35.679,0:28:40.399
a career in the arts

0:28:37.440,0:28:42.399
you are infinitely more likely

0:28:40.399,0:28:43.279
to achieve

0:28:42.399,0:28:45.039
a

0:28:43.279,0:28:47.360
measure of professional

0:28:45.039,0:28:49.200
success in the arts than you are as a

0:28:47.360,0:28:50.799
professional athlete

0:28:49.200,0:28:52.559
and the only reason the school is

0:28:50.799,0:28:54.960
focused on athletics is because the

0:28:52.559,0:28:56.960
school it’s a money maker for the school

0:28:54.960,0:28:59.279
and they’re basically selling the kids

0:28:56.960,0:29:01.440
education and future down the line so

0:28:59.279,0:29:04.640
they can make a few bucks off of them

0:29:01.440,0:29:06.080
and it was very evident in the

0:29:04.640,0:29:08.640
orientation

0:29:06.080,0:29:10.240
when the athletic program

0:29:08.640,0:29:12.559
got like

0:29:10.240,0:29:15.200
eight slides and you had

0:29:12.559,0:29:17.120
maybe one or two slides that they just

0:29:15.200,0:29:20.080
sort of blew through

0:29:17.120,0:29:22.799
for the arts side of things and it was

0:29:20.080,0:29:24.880
kind of an afterthought yeah and kind of

0:29:22.799,0:29:27.679
thinking about it i remember that they

0:29:24.880,0:29:30.720
said um they actually had a completely

0:29:27.679,0:29:32.799
new like weights um area

0:29:30.720,0:29:35.120
that was made for the school

0:29:32.799,0:29:37.520
and yet in marching band we have to make

0:29:35.120,0:29:39.520
donations for the student account yeah

0:29:37.520,0:29:41.679
and that’s that’s the terrible thing you

0:29:39.520,0:29:42.640
look at the school you have a new turf

0:29:41.679,0:29:46.720
field

0:29:42.640,0:29:49.120
you have a new weight room you have

0:29:46.720,0:29:51.919
two gyms do you have

0:29:49.120,0:29:53.600
and what do you have for a band room

0:29:51.919,0:29:55.840
like it’s smaller than the one i had in

0:29:53.600,0:30:00.159
middle school which is which is

0:29:55.840,0:30:01.679
ridiculous absolutely ridiculous and

0:30:00.159,0:30:04.159
this isn’t the first time that i’m going

0:30:01.679,0:30:05.760
to complain about this and i suspect

0:30:04.159,0:30:09.440
that i’m going to be sending numerous

0:30:05.760,0:30:11.760
letters and going to student going to

0:30:09.440,0:30:11.760
boards

0:30:12.000,0:30:16.640
parent teacher meetings and school board

0:30:13.760,0:30:18.480
meetings to talk about this because

0:30:16.640,0:30:20.799
what this school system is doing to

0:30:18.480,0:30:22.480
their students is a crime

0:30:20.799,0:30:24.399
it really is

0:30:22.480,0:30:26.559
but anyway i won’t get on the on my

0:30:24.399,0:30:28.320
soapbox about that here

0:30:26.559,0:30:30.000
although i already did but let’s come

0:30:28.320,0:30:32.080
back off the soapbox

0:30:30.000,0:30:34.240
let’s talk about having friends in your

0:30:32.080,0:30:35.279
classes so you made a lot of friends in

0:30:34.240,0:30:38.399
band

0:30:35.279,0:30:39.679
which was very helpful this summer

0:30:38.399,0:30:41.600
kind of gave you a little bit of a head

0:30:39.679,0:30:44.000
start going into school

0:30:41.600,0:30:46.320
how are you doing with uh friends per

0:30:44.000,0:30:47.600
class at this point in time

0:30:46.320,0:30:51.200
well

0:30:47.600,0:30:54.320
i have someone who has seven classes

0:30:51.200,0:30:55.919
of the same ones as me at the same time

0:30:54.320,0:30:58.080
that’s pretty impressive

0:30:55.919,0:31:00.320
i mean yeah that’s never really happened

0:30:58.080,0:31:02.960
before like

0:31:00.320,0:31:04.720
i have period one period three and by

0:31:02.960,0:31:07.279
the time we have lunch and fifth period

0:31:04.720,0:31:08.799
we have all the same classes right you

0:31:07.279,0:31:11.360
basically are going to the same place

0:31:08.799,0:31:11.360
after lunch

0:31:11.519,0:31:13.760
buddy now

0:31:12.559,0:31:14.559
yeah

0:31:13.760,0:31:16.159
um

0:31:14.559,0:31:18.159
and i guess being in the engineering

0:31:16.159,0:31:20.399
program kind of does give me the

0:31:18.159,0:31:23.279
advantage of kind of having

0:31:20.399,0:31:24.320
the same people in my classes because

0:31:23.279,0:31:26.880
i have

0:31:24.320,0:31:29.360
at because i because in three of my

0:31:26.880,0:31:31.600
classes i have like three i like have

0:31:29.360,0:31:33.519
the same class coming with me

0:31:31.600,0:31:35.919
in at least three of my classes so so

0:31:33.519,0:31:37.360
how do you think that’s gonna um help

0:31:35.919,0:31:39.440
you out throughout the year i know

0:31:37.360,0:31:41.279
you’ve had it in is it

0:31:39.440,0:31:44.000
let’s see if i can talk

0:31:41.279,0:31:45.039
i know in the past you’ve had issues

0:31:44.000,0:31:47.519
with

0:31:45.039,0:31:49.679
being the only person in class that you

0:31:47.519,0:31:52.640
knew like you didn’t know anybody else

0:31:49.679,0:31:54.559
and you found that difficult fitting in

0:31:52.640,0:31:57.440
getting put in teens with people you

0:31:54.559,0:31:59.760
didn’t know and stuff like that

0:31:57.440,0:32:01.760
how does it help when you’re in classes

0:31:59.760,0:32:03.519
with people that you know or at least

0:32:01.760,0:32:06.000
when you’re in

0:32:03.519,0:32:08.559
a class with new people but those new

0:32:06.000,0:32:10.480
people are in multiple classes with you

0:32:08.559,0:32:12.880
do you find that comforting at all do

0:32:10.480,0:32:15.120
you find it helpful yeah that sounds

0:32:12.880,0:32:17.919
pretty comforting um especially

0:32:15.120,0:32:21.039
considering the fact that um

0:32:17.919,0:32:24.159
i definitely feel like i’m in

0:32:21.039,0:32:26.799
place with them um and

0:32:24.159,0:32:29.120
i know that we kind of go through

0:32:26.799,0:32:31.120
similar experiences

0:32:29.120,0:32:33.679
we have similar classes

0:32:31.120,0:32:36.240
so um i definitely it’s definitely

0:32:33.679,0:32:38.159
pretty comforting to know that um

0:32:36.240,0:32:40.640
i kind of have buddies that i might be

0:32:38.159,0:32:42.559
able to stick with that’s nice and you

0:32:40.640,0:32:45.120
know in the event that at some point in

0:32:42.559,0:32:46.799
time you get sick or they get sick you

0:32:45.120,0:32:48.720
just need to exchange contact

0:32:46.799,0:32:51.440
information you can bring homework

0:32:48.720,0:32:54.000
assignments back and forth for them

0:32:51.440,0:32:55.919
you can you can have uh study time with

0:32:54.000,0:32:58.080
them it makes it so much easier when

0:32:55.919,0:33:00.320
you’ve got a group of people that

0:32:58.080,0:33:01.760
you know that you have common ground

0:33:00.320,0:33:04.320
with there

0:33:01.760,0:33:05.919
and you can ease into subjects or

0:33:04.320,0:33:07.679
you may run into a situation where you

0:33:05.919,0:33:08.960
get a lesson one day and you just don’t

0:33:07.679,0:33:10.240
get it

0:33:08.960,0:33:11.600
one of the other kids that you’re

0:33:10.240,0:33:14.000
friends with does and you can get

0:33:11.600,0:33:15.840
together with them and it alleviates a

0:33:14.000,0:33:18.159
lot of that anxiety that you were having

0:33:15.840,0:33:19.919
before like you were having issues

0:33:18.159,0:33:22.559
with one or two of your

0:33:19.919,0:33:25.279
uh subjects i know math last year where

0:33:22.559,0:33:26.080
you you had a lesson that was given in

0:33:25.279,0:33:28.320
you

0:33:26.080,0:33:29.440
you didn’t get it on the first take and

0:33:28.320,0:33:31.679
a lot of that had to do with the

0:33:29.440,0:33:34.080
barriers that you were running into

0:33:31.679,0:33:35.919
being remote yeah and you didn’t have

0:33:34.080,0:33:38.480
anyone to turn to like mommy or daddy

0:33:35.919,0:33:41.120
wouldn’t have been much help to having

0:33:38.480,0:33:43.679
that school that that supply that

0:33:41.120,0:33:44.799
support system in place there is is

0:33:43.679,0:33:46.640
something that’s going to help along

0:33:44.799,0:33:49.120
those lines

0:33:46.640,0:33:52.960
and the other question i have was

0:33:49.120,0:33:55.200
how different is it for you being or is

0:33:52.960,0:33:56.480
it different for you being in school now

0:33:55.200,0:33:58.000
with students

0:33:56.480,0:33:59.919
rather than the remote learning you did

0:33:58.000,0:34:01.200
for the last year and a half

0:33:59.919,0:34:03.279
it is

0:34:01.200,0:34:04.840
pretty different because

0:34:03.279,0:34:07.600
even when we had

0:34:04.840,0:34:10.560
like calls um

0:34:07.600,0:34:13.359
video calls it didn’t really feel like i

0:34:10.560,0:34:15.280
was really part of a class all that much

0:34:13.359,0:34:17.839
all we did was really comment for the

0:34:15.280,0:34:20.159
most part no one really ever wanted to

0:34:17.839,0:34:22.800
show their faces other than the teachers

0:34:20.159,0:34:24.720
and no one really like

0:34:22.800,0:34:26.960
turned off their mic on

0:34:24.720,0:34:28.560
well besides in gym

0:34:26.960,0:34:30.320
so do you think

0:34:28.560,0:34:33.280
what you have now is a better

0:34:30.320,0:34:35.440
environment to be learning in

0:34:33.280,0:34:37.599
maybe maybe not i’m not entirely sure

0:34:35.440,0:34:41.119
right now it might be better

0:34:37.599,0:34:42.960
jory’s still out on that one then i mean

0:34:41.119,0:34:44.560
i didn’t i wasn’t one of the people who

0:34:42.960,0:34:46.720
really had much of a problem for the

0:34:44.560,0:34:48.960
most part with remote learning

0:34:46.720,0:34:51.359
um and now having to go into physical

0:34:48.960,0:34:53.440
learning i don’t think it won’t it will

0:34:51.359,0:34:56.320
be that much of a problem but you know

0:34:53.440,0:34:58.640
it’s still early sure okay

0:34:56.320,0:34:59.839
the last question i had was how is your

0:34:58.640,0:35:02.160
schedule

0:34:59.839,0:35:04.800
i know the one big concern kids have

0:35:02.160,0:35:06.400
every year is where are my classes and

0:35:04.800,0:35:08.160
am i going from

0:35:06.400,0:35:10.240
one side of the campus to the other

0:35:08.160,0:35:12.320
every time i have to change classes

0:35:10.240,0:35:14.839
how’s your class scheduling now is it

0:35:12.320,0:35:17.839
space to the point where

0:35:14.839,0:35:19.760
you’re not able to get from class to

0:35:17.839,0:35:21.440
class in the amount of time a lot of

0:35:19.760,0:35:23.359
time between classes or do you think

0:35:21.440,0:35:25.280
it’s pretty well balanced down i

0:35:23.359,0:35:27.119
honestly think it’s pretty well balanced

0:35:25.280,0:35:30.480
out i go from

0:35:27.119,0:35:32.240
one hallway to another hallway that’s

0:35:30.480,0:35:34.560
actually very close to each other and

0:35:32.240,0:35:38.079
it’s not that far of a distance then i

0:35:34.560,0:35:40.400
go upstairs and i have two classes that

0:35:38.079,0:35:42.079
are in the same hallway and really

0:35:40.400,0:35:43.200
doesn’t take all that much time to get

0:35:42.079,0:35:46.400
there

0:35:43.200,0:35:49.359
and the only like commitments i need to

0:35:46.400,0:35:51.599
really have are when i go to gym

0:35:49.359,0:35:54.800
or when i go to the cafeteria mainly

0:35:51.599,0:35:57.040
because of how crowded it can get okay

0:35:54.800,0:35:59.599
well it doesn’t sound so bad but even

0:35:57.040,0:36:02.560
then it’s not that it’s not actually

0:35:59.599,0:36:04.960
that bad it’s just you know it takes a

0:36:02.560,0:36:07.280
little longer to get there right

0:36:04.960,0:36:10.079
well i know the last year that you were

0:36:07.280,0:36:12.160
in your other middle school

0:36:10.079,0:36:14.160
you were kind of run ragged around that

0:36:12.160,0:36:16.720
school because you’re up you were down

0:36:14.160,0:36:18.240
you were across you were back and

0:36:16.720,0:36:20.240
you had a couple of classes where you

0:36:18.240,0:36:22.079
really had to to book it to get across

0:36:20.240,0:36:23.920
to the next class

0:36:22.079,0:36:26.480
yeah specifically

0:36:23.920,0:36:27.359
um after i would have lunch

0:36:26.480,0:36:29.520
um

0:36:27.359,0:36:32.000
and after i had gym

0:36:29.520,0:36:35.680
were probably the times where it’s like

0:36:32.000,0:36:37.839
oh gosh this is really so no hanukkah

0:36:35.680,0:36:40.320
dash is like that in this school

0:36:37.839,0:36:43.200
yeah um and it’s nice that i physed at

0:36:40.320,0:36:45.520
the very end yeah um because

0:36:43.200,0:36:47.839
when i was in seventh grade i had it at

0:36:45.520,0:36:50.000
seventh period and then i had ela for

0:36:47.839,0:36:51.520
the last two periods

0:36:50.000,0:36:55.040
and um

0:36:51.520,0:36:57.359
having and my ela class was all the way

0:36:55.040,0:36:59.520
upstairs and all the way at the end of

0:36:57.359,0:37:00.320
the hallway and i came out this door

0:36:59.520,0:37:02.800
right

0:37:00.320,0:37:05.760
so that was the longest commitment and i

0:37:02.800,0:37:07.760
was always and for the most part i was

0:37:05.760,0:37:10.240
like almost

0:37:07.760,0:37:12.480
i was like very close to having the bell

0:37:10.240,0:37:13.839
like ring but the nice thing is in uh

0:37:12.480,0:37:15.200
high school you actually have four

0:37:13.839,0:37:18.400
minutes to get to your classes as

0:37:15.200,0:37:20.400
opposed to two right so it’s

0:37:18.400,0:37:22.800
easier to get to my class in the amount

0:37:20.400,0:37:24.800
of time good that’s good

0:37:22.800,0:37:26.560
so let’s take another break we’ll come

0:37:24.800,0:37:31.480
back and we’re going to talk about some

0:37:26.560,0:37:31.480

welcome back to insights into teens we

0:38:43.440,0:38:48.079
are talking back to school little off

0:38:46.000,0:38:49.440
the cuff discussion here

0:38:48.079,0:38:50.640
and a little catch up for the last two

0:38:49.440,0:38:52.640
weeks we’re going to talk about some of

0:38:50.640,0:38:54.000
the concerns and issues we have moving

0:38:52.640,0:38:55.440
forward

0:38:54.000,0:38:58.160
and probably the biggest one that i

0:38:55.440,0:39:01.119
think i have and one that i was hoping

0:38:58.160,0:39:04.480
that you’d you’d kind of give me the

0:39:01.119,0:39:06.800
4-1-1 on the the information on

0:39:04.480,0:39:09.040
do you feel safe with the precautions at

0:39:06.800,0:39:10.640
school now for covid

0:39:09.040,0:39:12.160
that’s one that we had talked about that

0:39:10.640,0:39:14.880
you’re going to kind of have to assess

0:39:12.160,0:39:16.079
and what’s your initial assessment

0:39:14.880,0:39:18.960
well

0:39:16.079,0:39:21.200
the good thing is everyone is they make

0:39:18.960,0:39:23.440
sure that everyone’s wearing their masks

0:39:21.200,0:39:24.960
properly which is nice

0:39:23.440,0:39:26.960
you’re only ever allowed to take your

0:39:24.960,0:39:28.720
mask off if you’re actively eating

0:39:26.960,0:39:30.400
actively playing an instrument or

0:39:28.720,0:39:32.480
actively in gym

0:39:30.400,0:39:33.920
okay which one

0:39:32.480,0:39:36.720
that’s something

0:39:33.920,0:39:36.720
yeah um

0:39:36.960,0:39:42.640
uh we’re having assigned seating so that

0:39:39.920,0:39:44.880
um everyone knows

0:39:42.640,0:39:47.680
um that they’re in the same seat and you

0:39:44.880,0:39:49.599
know for cover precautions so that um

0:39:47.680,0:39:51.119
everyone just stays in the same seat

0:39:49.599,0:39:53.520
every day

0:39:51.119,0:39:55.440
uh what about overcrowding how’s the

0:39:53.520,0:39:56.960
crowding in there are you bumping into

0:39:55.440,0:39:58.720
people in

0:39:56.960,0:40:01.119
class are you spread out in class are

0:39:58.720,0:40:02.240
you are you tight in the hallways how’s

0:40:01.119,0:40:04.240
the

0:40:02.240,0:40:06.240
overall crowding in there

0:40:04.240,0:40:09.040
in the hallways it’s a bit tight in the

0:40:06.240,0:40:11.359
classroom it’s not really as tight um

0:40:09.040,0:40:13.359
and the classrooms are spaced out okay

0:40:11.359,0:40:15.920
what about you think you had an assembly

0:40:13.359,0:40:18.640
already how was the assembly

0:40:15.920,0:40:19.599
kind of crammed not gonna lie

0:40:18.640,0:40:22.000
like

0:40:19.599,0:40:24.800
we were crammed into one area in the

0:40:22.000,0:40:27.200
auditorium the center and all the seats

0:40:24.800,0:40:29.280
were filled and how did that make you

0:40:27.200,0:40:30.240
feel did you have a sense of anxiety

0:40:29.280,0:40:32.640
from that

0:40:30.240,0:40:35.040
kind of because i knew this really

0:40:32.640,0:40:37.040
wasn’t coveted approved i don’t know why

0:40:35.040,0:40:39.760
they didn’t space us out all that much

0:40:37.040,0:40:41.280
did you say anything to anybody

0:40:39.760,0:40:43.119
um

0:40:41.280,0:40:44.160
i wasn’t able to

0:40:43.119,0:40:46.400
um

0:40:44.160,0:40:48.319
i just like i mean i said it out loud

0:40:46.400,0:40:51.760
but i don’t really think anyone heard me

0:40:48.319,0:40:53.440
because everyone else was talking so

0:40:51.760,0:40:56.000
all right this this is something i

0:40:53.440,0:40:57.599
definitely wanted to talk about

0:40:56.000,0:40:59.680
i don’t want you to be put in a

0:40:57.599,0:41:00.720
situation where you feel unsafe at

0:40:59.680,0:41:02.480
school

0:41:00.720,0:41:03.440
so if you’re in a situation like that

0:41:02.480,0:41:05.599
and they’re

0:41:03.440,0:41:06.640
asking you to sit or stand or do

0:41:05.599,0:41:08.640
something

0:41:06.640,0:41:10.800
and you don’t feel safe

0:41:08.640,0:41:12.160
then you need to tell

0:41:10.800,0:41:14.240
a teacher

0:41:12.160,0:41:16.720
or you need to tell a staff member or

0:41:14.240,0:41:18.880
something like that how you feel

0:41:16.720,0:41:20.560
i don’t want you to be shy about it

0:41:18.880,0:41:22.319
because i’ll guarantee that there’s

0:41:20.560,0:41:24.400
probably a lot of other kids that feel

0:41:22.319,0:41:25.839
the same way and they’re afraid to say

0:41:24.400,0:41:29.119
anything

0:41:25.839,0:41:30.400
and if you speak up and set the example

0:41:29.119,0:41:33.200
and let them know that what they’re

0:41:30.400,0:41:35.119
doing is making the kids feel unsafe

0:41:33.200,0:41:37.040
you can set the right example from day

0:41:35.119,0:41:39.040
one right there

0:41:37.040,0:41:41.760
you’re not gonna get in trouble for it

0:41:39.040,0:41:43.200
trust me if if they even try to get you

0:41:41.760,0:41:44.800
in trouble for that

0:41:43.200,0:41:47.119
they’re gonna get a lot more than a

0:41:44.800,0:41:51.599
nasty letter from me

0:41:47.119,0:41:54.160
all right i will back you up 110 on that

0:41:51.599,0:41:56.960
you need to feel safe you know what is

0:41:54.160,0:41:58.880
safe you’re well aware of what the cdc

0:41:56.960,0:42:00.400
guidelines are

0:41:58.880,0:42:02.240
you don’t know how many of those kids

0:42:00.400,0:42:03.760
have been vaccinated

0:42:02.240,0:42:05.680
just because you’re wearing a mask

0:42:03.760,0:42:07.760
doesn’t mean you’re safe being shoulder

0:42:05.680,0:42:09.440
to shoulder with people

0:42:07.760,0:42:12.319
so i don’t want you to feel any

0:42:09.440,0:42:14.160
hesitation whatsoever of going up saying

0:42:12.319,0:42:15.440
hey mr so-and-so

0:42:14.160,0:42:17.760
i don’t feel comfortable in this

0:42:15.440,0:42:20.960
situation i’m too close to other people

0:42:17.760,0:42:22.720
during a pandemic can i space out

0:42:20.960,0:42:24.319
can i move someplace else can i sit

0:42:22.720,0:42:27.920
someplace a little bit further away can

0:42:24.319,0:42:30.480
i sit someplace safer i don’t feel safe

0:42:27.920,0:42:32.400
and make sure you say those exact words

0:42:30.480,0:42:33.760
i don’t feel safe

0:42:32.400,0:42:37.200
because if they don’t do anything at

0:42:33.760,0:42:39.599
that point then they’re legally liable

0:42:37.200,0:42:41.760
so you need to let them know

0:42:39.599,0:42:45.839
you feel that your safety is threatened

0:42:41.760,0:42:46.960
by what they’re trying to do okay

0:42:45.839,0:42:49.359
so

0:42:46.960,0:42:51.119
don’t ever hesitate to do that

0:42:49.359,0:42:53.359
and then we’ll see how they react to

0:42:51.119,0:42:55.599
that and if they react properly kudos to

0:42:53.359,0:42:57.599
them if they don’t

0:42:55.599,0:43:00.319
well if they don’t

0:42:57.599,0:43:02.400
i i have an overwhelming sense of pity

0:43:00.319,0:43:04.880
for them if they don’t

0:43:02.400,0:43:06.880
because i will rain fire down on them if

0:43:04.880,0:43:08.640
they don’t

0:43:06.880,0:43:10.560
because you and every other one of those

0:43:08.640,0:43:12.400
children need to be safe

0:43:10.560,0:43:13.839
you’ve already gotten notifications from

0:43:12.400,0:43:15.920
the school system

0:43:13.839,0:43:17.680
about covet infections

0:43:15.920,0:43:20.560
and if they’re doing stuff like that and

0:43:17.680,0:43:21.760
they’re acting stupid like that

0:43:20.560,0:43:23.680
then they need to be called on the

0:43:21.760,0:43:24.560
carpet and they need to make sure that

0:43:23.680,0:43:26.400
they’re

0:43:24.560,0:43:28.560
keeping these kids safe

0:43:26.400,0:43:31.520
because i will not send you to school if

0:43:28.560,0:43:32.480
they are refusing to keep you safe

0:43:31.520,0:43:34.880
all right

0:43:32.480,0:43:37.040
yeah neither mommy or i we will both

0:43:34.880,0:43:40.400
back you up on that

0:43:37.040,0:43:41.839
110 percent

0:43:40.400,0:43:43.520
so

0:43:41.839,0:43:45.599
make sure you speak up

0:43:43.520,0:43:47.440
you set that example

0:43:45.599,0:43:48.640
and you let them deal with it at that

0:43:47.440,0:43:50.880
point in time

0:43:48.640,0:43:52.800
and i’ll guarantee you there will be

0:43:50.880,0:43:54.400
other kids tons of other kids are going

0:43:52.800,0:43:56.160
to feel the same way and they’re going

0:43:54.400,0:43:57.920
to be glad that you’ve got the courage

0:43:56.160,0:43:59.520
to do that

0:43:57.920,0:44:02.000
all right so let’s just keep that in

0:43:59.520,0:44:04.240
mind in the back of our mind

0:44:02.000,0:44:06.560
besides that do they have cleaning

0:44:04.240,0:44:08.640
supplies available do they have barriers

0:44:06.560,0:44:10.480
up talk to me about some of the the

0:44:08.640,0:44:12.880
protocols that they have

0:44:10.480,0:44:14.319
they do have cleaning supplies that you

0:44:12.880,0:44:16.880
can use

0:44:14.319,0:44:18.000
um but they don’t have any barriers up

0:44:16.880,0:44:19.839
okay

0:44:18.000,0:44:22.560
so are you cleaning

0:44:19.839,0:44:24.560
yeah okay what about hand sanitizing uh

0:44:22.560,0:44:27.200
they do have hand sanitizer but i did

0:44:24.560,0:44:28.319
bring my own so i kind of used that good

0:44:27.200,0:44:30.319
girl

0:44:28.319,0:44:32.319
how are the bathrooms are the bathrooms

0:44:30.319,0:44:35.520
being cleaned

0:44:32.319,0:44:38.640
um i don’t know i haven’t really gone in

0:44:35.520,0:44:40.800
the bathroom what about water fountains

0:44:38.640,0:44:41.839
are they opening in use

0:44:40.800,0:44:44.720
um

0:44:41.839,0:44:46.560
i believe so but you’re not using them

0:44:44.720,0:44:48.240
right no okay

0:44:46.560,0:44:50.720
do you have a water bottle that you can

0:44:48.240,0:44:52.720
fill up and keep with you yeah i could

0:44:50.720,0:44:54.400
okay i do that’s the best thing to do

0:44:52.720,0:44:55.920
then yeah

0:44:54.400,0:44:58.960
and the nice thing is they do allow

0:44:55.920,0:45:01.440
water bottles um which is nice i’ve seen

0:44:58.960,0:45:02.480
other kids have water bottles right well

0:45:01.440,0:45:05.040
because i know they were giving them out

0:45:02.480,0:45:06.079
of the orientation as a as the prize

0:45:05.040,0:45:08.000
yeah

0:45:06.079,0:45:09.839
okay so that’s that’s okay is there

0:45:08.000,0:45:11.599
anything else that’s happening that

0:45:09.839,0:45:14.079
makes you feel unsafe or that you’re

0:45:11.599,0:45:15.200
questioning from a a crovid protocol

0:45:14.079,0:45:17.680
standpoint

0:45:15.200,0:45:20.000
that would probably be the bus’s home

0:45:17.680,0:45:21.440
okay it’s extremely crowded in there to

0:45:20.000,0:45:23.680
the point where the three suitors

0:45:21.440,0:45:25.440
actually have to fit three people and

0:45:23.680,0:45:27.520
the two seaters actually have to fit two

0:45:25.440,0:45:29.359
people and like

0:45:27.520,0:45:32.240
like mommy said with little kids you can

0:45:29.359,0:45:35.119
kind of fit three people in there but

0:45:32.240,0:45:37.359
with high schoolers you really can’t

0:45:35.119,0:45:40.079
right and um

0:45:37.359,0:45:42.880
the good thing was me and kenny um are

0:45:40.079,0:45:45.760
able to just sit in the three seater

0:45:42.880,0:45:47.680
and not really have to have three people

0:45:45.760,0:45:50.319
which is nice because we kind of space

0:45:47.680,0:45:53.359
each other ourselves from each other um

0:45:50.319,0:45:55.280
so at least i feel safe from that

0:45:53.359,0:45:59.280
but like

0:45:55.280,0:46:01.680
there are a lot of people on that bus

0:45:59.280,0:46:04.400
and it’s extremely crammed

0:46:01.680,0:46:05.839
so are there hand sanitizers or wipes or

0:46:04.400,0:46:08.960
anything on the bus

0:46:05.839,0:46:10.560
i can’t tell you can’t tell okay

0:46:08.960,0:46:12.839
are they ventilating the bus are there

0:46:10.560,0:46:15.839
windows down how is the bus

0:46:12.839,0:46:18.560
ventilation um

0:46:15.839,0:46:21.440
i think you can put the windows down um

0:46:18.560,0:46:23.440
i’m not entirely sure i’ve

0:46:21.440,0:46:25.040
never really paid too much attention to

0:46:23.440,0:46:26.480
it okay

0:46:25.040,0:46:28.640
all right these are things that mommy

0:46:26.480,0:46:30.560
and i are gonna have to address

0:46:28.640,0:46:31.680
will will certainly make our concerns

0:46:30.560,0:46:34.640
known

0:46:31.680,0:46:35.100
any other coveted related concerns

0:46:34.640,0:46:36.640
um

0:46:35.100,0:46:39.599
[Music]

0:46:36.640,0:46:41.680
i think that’s mostly it okay

0:46:39.599,0:46:44.720
so how about the schedule how are you

0:46:41.680,0:46:46.319
holding up are you tired are you

0:46:44.720,0:46:47.680
you have enough energy you’re getting

0:46:46.319,0:46:49.680
enough sleep

0:46:47.680,0:46:50.960
what’s going on with your your sleep

0:46:49.680,0:46:51.920
patterns

0:46:50.960,0:46:53.839
um

0:46:51.920,0:46:57.599
i’ve started getting used to it at this

0:46:53.839,0:47:01.359
point um it’s not insanely bad i’ve

0:46:57.599,0:47:04.079
gotten i’ve been getting good sleep

0:47:01.359,0:47:07.440
um and i’ve been

0:47:04.079,0:47:10.000
having enough energy during the day so

0:47:07.440,0:47:12.480
um i think so far with my sleep schedule

0:47:10.000,0:47:14.319
it’s been all right um so how about even

0:47:12.480,0:47:17.520
the nights that you’ve got band practice

0:47:14.319,0:47:17.520
how is that on you

0:47:17.760,0:47:21.440
uh

0:47:20.000,0:47:23.280
i definitely think

0:47:21.440,0:47:24.480
that’s gonna be a bit of a challenge to

0:47:23.280,0:47:26.960
work through

0:47:24.480,0:47:28.800
because when i came home on wednesday i

0:47:26.960,0:47:29.680
wasn’t really feeling all that well

0:47:28.800,0:47:31.440
right

0:47:29.680,0:47:33.119
um so

0:47:31.440,0:47:36.000
that might be something we have to look

0:47:33.119,0:47:37.440
for look for okay um

0:47:36.000,0:47:39.359
we’ll have to keep an eye on that and

0:47:37.440,0:47:41.680
see what we what we can do to adjust

0:47:39.359,0:47:43.839
that was it just that you were tired and

0:47:41.680,0:47:45.680
exhausted was it heat did you not get

0:47:43.839,0:47:47.920
enough to drink you think

0:47:45.680,0:47:50.640
um i felt like i had a decent amount to

0:47:47.920,0:47:53.440
drink it wasn’t too hot out i might not

0:47:50.640,0:47:55.839
have had enough energy at the time and

0:47:53.440,0:47:58.640
i guess just the fact that

0:47:55.839,0:48:01.040
we had to pretty much do the same stuff

0:47:58.640,0:48:02.480
over and over again kind of got tiring

0:48:01.040,0:48:05.200
at the point where

0:48:02.480,0:48:07.599
i kind of just didn’t really have the

0:48:05.200,0:48:08.960
energy i started completely losing it

0:48:07.599,0:48:10.880
faster

0:48:08.960,0:48:13.040
more mental exhaustion that led to

0:48:10.880,0:48:14.480
physical exhaustion yeah you know the

0:48:13.040,0:48:15.280
repetitiveness i could see that all

0:48:14.480,0:48:18.160
right

0:48:15.280,0:48:20.480
but we’ll definitely keep an eye on that

0:48:18.160,0:48:22.480
uh how much are classes do you like your

0:48:20.480,0:48:24.800
teachers

0:48:22.480,0:48:26.800
mostly mostly that’s a vote of

0:48:24.800,0:48:29.200
confidence

0:48:26.800,0:48:31.440
the only one i’m not really all that

0:48:29.200,0:48:32.640
fond of right now don’t mention too much

0:48:31.440,0:48:34.319
in here because you never know who

0:48:32.640,0:48:36.000
watches the podcast or listen to the

0:48:34.319,0:48:38.160
podcast true

0:48:36.000,0:48:40.480
there is one teacher i’m not necessarily

0:48:38.160,0:48:42.480
fond of they take their job a bit too

0:48:40.480,0:48:44.720
seriously i think

0:48:42.480,0:48:46.880
okay to the point where

0:48:44.720,0:48:48.720
they have our first assignment on friday

0:48:46.880,0:48:50.880
where none of my other teachers really

0:48:48.720,0:48:53.200
have that right now okay

0:48:50.880,0:48:54.160
and like it was an easy assignment it’s

0:48:53.200,0:48:56.079
just

0:48:54.160,0:48:58.000
do you really have to be that hard on us

0:48:56.079,0:49:00.160
this early maybe they’re just trying to

0:48:58.000,0:49:02.319
set that pace up for you that you’re

0:49:00.160,0:49:03.599
going they’re gonna drive you and

0:49:02.319,0:49:05.359
there’s nothing wrong with being

0:49:03.599,0:49:07.440
challenged

0:49:05.359,0:49:10.640
if they do it with unrealistic

0:49:07.440,0:49:12.480
expectations then we have a problem

0:49:10.640,0:49:14.319
but i don’t think it’s unrealistic to

0:49:12.480,0:49:16.480
expect kids to turn in an assignment

0:49:14.319,0:49:18.720
after the first week of school

0:49:16.480,0:49:20.559
it kind of gives the teacher you know

0:49:18.720,0:49:24.160
kind of lets the teacher set the bar too

0:49:20.559,0:49:25.119
as as to what to expect for these kids

0:49:24.160,0:49:27.760
all right

0:49:25.119,0:49:29.359
so not too bad there what about

0:49:27.760,0:49:31.200
the curriculum have you run into

0:49:29.359,0:49:32.800
anything with the curriculum yet that’s

0:49:31.200,0:49:35.119
concerning to you

0:49:32.800,0:49:35.119
uh

0:49:35.760,0:49:40.000
i just know i’m gonna be expecting a lot

0:49:37.680,0:49:42.160
of work and with marching band that

0:49:40.000,0:49:44.079
might be difficult i guess i’ll just you

0:49:42.160,0:49:46.480
know have to deal with it yeah well in

0:49:44.079,0:49:49.119
marching bands not all year so you you

0:49:46.480,0:49:51.520
know if you can look at it this way

0:49:49.119,0:49:53.520
if you can deal with the workload while

0:49:51.520,0:49:54.880
you’re in marching band for the first

0:49:53.520,0:49:56.640
couple of months

0:49:54.880,0:49:58.960
then you’ll be able to breeze through

0:49:56.640,0:50:00.319
with the rest of the year yeah so this

0:49:58.960,0:50:01.920
is going to be the probably the most

0:50:00.319,0:50:03.440
difficult part

0:50:01.920,0:50:04.720
of the year for you

0:50:03.440,0:50:05.920
so we’ve got to keep an eye on it and

0:50:04.720,0:50:08.160
make sure that you’re okay and you’re

0:50:05.920,0:50:10.000
staying up on everything

0:50:08.160,0:50:12.400
it’s a test and we’ll see how you pass

0:50:10.000,0:50:13.440
the test okay

0:50:12.400,0:50:15.680
um

0:50:13.440,0:50:17.599
chromebooks so you guys are switching

0:50:15.680,0:50:21.359
the chromebooks this year

0:50:17.599,0:50:23.200
um no textbooks some textbooks well you

0:50:21.359,0:50:24.480
they still have the textbooks in case

0:50:23.200,0:50:26.640
you need them but they’re not giving

0:50:24.480,0:50:28.319
them out so you literally just go from

0:50:26.640,0:50:30.000
classic fans with a chromebook and what

0:50:28.319,0:50:32.480
a notebook or two

0:50:30.000,0:50:34.240
yeah and like some stuff for like

0:50:32.480,0:50:36.640
binders and stuff

0:50:34.240,0:50:37.599
how are you adjusting to that

0:50:36.640,0:50:39.440
um

0:50:37.599,0:50:42.400
it’s nice not having to carry around

0:50:39.440,0:50:45.200
giant books all day right um still kind

0:50:42.400,0:50:47.359
of have a heavy bag but it’s not as

0:50:45.200,0:50:50.960
heavy as it would have been if i did

0:50:47.359,0:50:52.240
have those like five pound books okay

0:50:50.960,0:50:53.520
are you comfortable using the

0:50:52.240,0:50:56.079
chromebooks

0:50:53.520,0:50:58.160
i i feel so um

0:50:56.079,0:51:00.720
it’s definitely not my actual laptop

0:50:58.160,0:51:02.480
which i’m actually using at home because

0:51:00.720,0:51:04.079
you don’t want to have this connect to

0:51:02.480,0:51:05.680
the in my chromebook connect to the

0:51:04.079,0:51:07.119
internet here well we can get you

0:51:05.680,0:51:08.319
connected here if you have stuff on

0:51:07.119,0:51:10.000
there you need to work with so don’t

0:51:08.319,0:51:11.280
worry about that okay we’ll get you

0:51:10.000,0:51:13.599
connected

0:51:11.280,0:51:13.599
um

0:51:13.839,0:51:18.079
no no issues technology wise though

0:51:16.480,0:51:19.760
using it if you’re comfortable with it

0:51:18.079,0:51:22.640
the interface is okay

0:51:19.760,0:51:25.280
yeah it’s fine it’s just it just feels

0:51:22.640,0:51:27.200
like a smaller screen than you’d kind of

0:51:25.280,0:51:30.240
expect because like

0:51:27.200,0:51:33.680
with my engineering and cad classes we

0:51:30.240,0:51:36.480
actually have legitimate computers

0:51:33.680,0:51:39.599
right um which with a much larger screen

0:51:36.480,0:51:42.240
that while the keyboard’s kind of clunky

0:51:39.599,0:51:44.640
it’s actually a lot easier to see

0:51:42.240,0:51:46.240
but the chromebook gets kind of small

0:51:44.640,0:51:47.839
okay

0:51:46.240,0:51:49.599
well and we we might be able to work

0:51:47.839,0:51:52.000
around that here if we have to i can’t

0:51:49.599,0:51:53.680
do much for you in class but it’s all

0:51:52.000,0:51:56.079
right we might be able to work around

0:51:53.680,0:51:58.240
with the with it here for homework and

0:51:56.079,0:52:00.400
stuff like that yeah but overall using

0:51:58.240,0:52:02.319
it at school i feel is

0:52:00.400,0:52:03.760
fine yeah well that’s good i didn’t

0:52:02.319,0:52:05.440
think it would be too big of a leap

0:52:03.760,0:52:07.359
since you were kind of homeschooling on

0:52:05.440,0:52:09.680
a computer the last two and a half at

0:52:07.359,0:52:11.520
least year and a half anyway so

0:52:09.680,0:52:13.520
using your chromebooks a bit of a

0:52:11.520,0:52:14.640
learning curve because of the operating

0:52:13.520,0:52:16.640
system but

0:52:14.640,0:52:20.000
good i’m glad it wasn’t it wasn’t a big

0:52:16.640,0:52:22.800
concern um what other concerns or issues

0:52:20.000,0:52:24.020
do you have that we haven’t talked about

0:52:22.800,0:52:27.349
um

0:52:24.020,0:52:27.349
[Music]

0:52:30.559,0:52:37.599
any personality conflicts you’ve had any

0:52:34.800,0:52:39.760
no bullying at this point i assume

0:52:37.599,0:52:40.800
no no bullying has been happening i’ve

0:52:39.760,0:52:43.440
never really

0:52:40.800,0:52:45.359
interacted all that much with

0:52:43.440,0:52:46.720
some of the people so

0:52:45.359,0:52:48.240
how about marching band do you have a

0:52:46.720,0:52:49.839
lot of marching band kids in your

0:52:48.240,0:52:52.559
classes

0:52:49.839,0:52:55.440
um not

0:52:52.559,0:52:57.359
some but not a lot okay

0:52:55.440,0:52:58.880
are there any other concerns about

0:52:57.359,0:53:01.530
school that you have at this point in

0:52:58.880,0:53:04.800
time

0:53:01.530,0:53:06.400
[Music]

0:53:04.800,0:53:08.960
doesn’t sound like there’s anything

0:53:06.400,0:53:08.960
pressing

0:53:09.280,0:53:15.520
yeah which is kind of surprising i’m

0:53:12.079,0:53:18.480
still kind of waiting to see how things

0:53:15.520,0:53:19.520
go well it’s it’s very early you know i

0:53:18.480,0:53:21.520
think the

0:53:19.520,0:53:23.920
my main purpose of of

0:53:21.520,0:53:25.119
the podcast today was kind of just feel

0:53:23.920,0:53:26.480
things out and get your initial

0:53:25.119,0:53:29.839
impressions and

0:53:26.480,0:53:31.440
address any concerns that you might have

0:53:29.839,0:53:32.960
you know we’ll certainly check in we’d

0:53:31.440,0:53:34.960
like to do it as a podcast but we’ll

0:53:32.960,0:53:37.760
check in throughout the

0:53:34.960,0:53:39.760
year as we move on and as problems creep

0:53:37.760,0:53:42.079
up we’ll figure them out and we’ll deal

0:53:39.760,0:53:44.079
with them that’s what we do you know

0:53:42.079,0:53:46.079
there isn’t anything that that we can’t

0:53:44.079,0:53:48.000
address and take care of we we take care

0:53:46.079,0:53:50.160
of it all

0:53:48.000,0:53:52.000
so i that’s all i had i mean i just

0:53:50.160,0:53:54.000
threw together some some quick notes and

0:53:52.000,0:53:55.839
some questions that i had

0:53:54.000,0:53:57.200
uh we’ll take a quick break and we’ll

0:53:55.839,0:53:58.960
come back and we’ll get your closing

0:53:57.200,0:54:00.960
thoughts on on

0:53:58.960,0:54:02.000
how school start the school start of

0:54:00.960,0:54:03.599
school is

0:54:02.000,0:54:05.200
or anything else you want to talk about

0:54:03.599,0:54:06.079
so your show you can talk about whatever

0:54:05.200,0:54:09.640
you want

0:54:06.079,0:54:09.640
we’ll be right back

0:54:12.079,0:54:15.599
go with your closing remarks all right

0:54:14.640,0:54:17.599
so

0:54:15.599,0:54:20.240
i know this podcast really doesn’t have

0:54:17.599,0:54:21.839
all that much of a message to it it was

0:54:20.240,0:54:23.680
kind of just a

0:54:21.839,0:54:26.400
hey let’s check in and see how the last

0:54:23.680,0:54:29.440
two weeks have been um

0:54:26.400,0:54:30.960
but yeah i’ve started school and

0:54:29.440,0:54:32.800
i’m probably gonna have to deal with a

0:54:30.960,0:54:35.520
lot of stuff that

0:54:32.800,0:54:37.760
hopefully we can try relating to

0:54:35.520,0:54:39.839
everyone at home um

0:54:37.760,0:54:40.640
i at least hope that this

0:54:39.839,0:54:43.119
is

0:54:40.640,0:54:44.240
was at least somewhat helpful if not at

0:54:43.119,0:54:46.720
least

0:54:44.240,0:54:49.440
you enjoyed watching um

0:54:46.720,0:54:53.359
i at least hope this was an okay podcast

0:54:49.440,0:54:55.520
after not being here for a week okay

0:54:53.359,0:54:57.359
i would say there was sage words but

0:54:55.520,0:54:58.799
really that was just you summing things

0:54:57.359,0:55:00.000
up

0:54:58.799,0:55:02.319
yeah

0:55:00.000,0:55:04.079
um i think a lot of kids out there that

0:55:02.319,0:55:07.040
might be watching the podcast have gone

0:55:04.079,0:55:09.119
through similar things as you uh start

0:55:07.040,0:55:12.720
of school is always kind of a

0:55:09.119,0:55:14.160
nervous time a high a heightened emotion

0:55:12.720,0:55:16.000
time

0:55:14.160,0:55:17.920
lots of new things especially going into

0:55:16.000,0:55:19.760
high school for the first time you know

0:55:17.920,0:55:22.240
this will be the first and only time you

0:55:19.760,0:55:24.240
ever have to do this yeah high school is

0:55:22.240,0:55:27.119
all downhill from here

0:55:24.240,0:55:29.440
that’s the best way to look at it yeah

0:55:27.119,0:55:32.400
um so that was all we had before we do
