I was SO worried that my principal wouldnt let me walk across the stage for graduation bc I was on homebound from where I had my 2 surgeries. And I prayed like all morning about it bc I was going to go talk to him about it and I was all ready and prepared to argue with him if he said no lol My mom and I had a lot of trouble with him in the past with some things so we were worried that he wouldnt let me walk. But suprisingly he was happy to say yes =D He said as long as I feel well enough to attend mandatory grad. practice I could walk and he said if i needed to use the bathroom I could just get up and go. I think he has more sympathy now for homebound students and students going through surgeries and whatnot bc last yr he got a brain tumor and was out for a while with his surgery so I think that opened his eyes a lot. And he said I could do spot night =D I was really afraid that I would be pottying tooo much to ride in the parade and have fun but as long as I dont eat I think I should be fine. All Ive had so far since I got up at 8 is a pb cookie and its after 2 and I havent went to the bathroom yet but Im starving lol At least I know if I go to grad practice from 8-12 ill be fine as long as I dont eat. Ill just pig out when I get home hahahh
I just wanted to share the amazingly exciting news that I get to WALK for graduation yeah
