An Update On School Situation...

Recommended Posts

Kuribo [old account]

Hi all, I have some good news. I had my transition meeting today, and there is now a plan for the next two years:

I'll only go to school twice a week and go to college three days a week. At college, I'll likely be doing a Digital Media Computing course, which will then lead on to something more specialised in the years to come. I'll be going on a college visit in a few months, which I look forward to, and I will also be dropping a subject to study web design here for the time being.

Next year, I'll start going to a club for Autistic people over the age of sixteen which I've mentioned before, so I may end up meeting a couple of people from Asperclick next year too. :)

I will be doing a course specifically for building confidence and relaxing in social situations at some point, and the new club will undoubtedly help wit this too.

So, if everything goes according to plan, I'll only be in high school full-time for another seven months. :D I don't mind only doing it for two days a week, and I may not be in a proper class for all of the subjects I continue to do here.

I'm absolutely delighted about all of this. For the first time in almost a year, I'm feeling something close to happiness.

I have changed the background of my avatar today. The last one had a prison cell which signified that I felt trapped with no way out. The new one has a night sky, which signifies that there is a light at the end of all of this.

Thank you to everyone who's tried to support me. I know I'm not always the most pleasant person to deal with when I'm depressed.

I'm really pleased that things are finally working out for you, and that you've found a solution to the problems you were having at school. It's much better to concentrate on the things you enjoy, and you will learn valuable skills for the future. I wish you all the best!  :)

Good to hear. Milk school for whatever you can get from it. I thought they may have something planned.

I am really pleased about your good news Kuribo, and pleased you feel happy about it! I think it sounds like a good plan specifically for you, for school and college together. I hope you will look forward to it and can feel a bit happier now. 

Maybe I will see you at that particular Autistic social club sometime in the future. I might be going quite soon so I can tell you how it is before you go  :)

I like your new avatar background then, there is light at the end of bad times  :)

Yes, I plan to. I'm glad that I'll still be able to get the most out of high school with minimal annoyance.

I will be going probably in January or February, depending on how long the waiting list is. :)

Okay, I might be going around then too, they were in contact with them last week about me and now I will wait for the registration appointment I think. I will go to it from here first. Maybe we could eventually arrange to go on the same day or something, I don't know. Anyway, it's great you will be going  :)
