disrupted education

Posted in Uncategorized by Diana on September 30, 2011

On Fridays I have lunch with my host family.

Now that school is back in session, I wasn’t sure who would answer the door. Then again, of all the people who I would’ve guessed, Fatima, my youngest host aunt, would not have been on that list.

She’s the latest victim of disrupted education.

Dang it.

I really thought her road would be different. I thought she’d complete high school at the very least.

I was naïve.

She doesn’t even get to start high school.

I asked her several times why she wasn’t going to school anymore. Each time I received a lot of ambiguous responses.

She doesn’t want to anymore?

Bullsh*t. I don’t buy that.

In other news, Rkiya and Hayat, my two host sisters, are both in school now. They both go to school at noon on Fridays, which means I don’t get to have lunch with them anymore. I’m thinking of switching my host family lunch day to Saturdays so that I still get to spend time with them when I visit my host family.
