Daily Update June 1, 2012

June 3, 2012

Like many things at Island School, advisory time is coming to an end. Thursday evening my advisory including some of our extended advisory went out for a final meal. On the car ride back to campus one of my peers turned to the van and said, “ It started with conch and ended with conch.” The whole van bursted into a eruption of laughter, as I sat there puzzled questioning why my meal of choice was so humorous. They reminded me of our first advisory time when we biked to a beach near campus and moments into the afternoon my foot was punctured by a conch and painting the beach brick red. These new faces came to my rescue without hesitation. I am honestly unsure I knew each of their names at the time but there is no doubt they would be my crutch to the finish line. Beth my advisor has been more than supportive during my variable emotional experience here at The Island School. She has seen me at my highest and my lowest, riding this emotional rollercoaster with me side by side. Through bawling and beaming. Confident and withdrawn, she guided me home. She gives me the reassurance that here I can be my 100%. She taught me that this is self discovery, and that cry for help is nothing to be ashamed of.
