I'm practising English

My aim is to practise English on my own for a year.
In a year from now, I hope that I am able to write in English without failings.
We'll caretake a dog

My sister's friend has a dog. It's a golden retriever named Hugo, and he's around nine months old.
We are going to take care of Hugo this weekend.
My sister will walk off with the dog today.
I hope Hugo is kind to cats!
My different teachers
posted at 08:56 pm on 03-19-2010
This is how my last teachers were, and how my current teachers are. I changed schools a few months ago.
Last teacher 1: He made fun of me because I couldn't talk particularly much. My special interest was cats, and he thought I was a fanatic. We were going to make up a song on the music lesson, and he asked me about what my song would be all about. "Dogs" I replied. "DOGS?! I think you mean cats!" he shouted.
"I love all animals" said I as moodily as I could.
At the parent-teacher conference, he reported my parents that I was "standing by the wall" in the breaks. He said that tauntingly. He said that I shy away from the other kids.
He hated me and bullied me because of my lack of social skills and my odd behaviour!
Last teacher 2: She nagged at me continueous. "Don't you want to play cards with the others?" and "Come on, put away that book and spend time with these girls!" were things she said to me.
Even though I answered that I didn't want to, she kept asking the same things constantly.
She lied to my parents by saying that I ate nothing for lunch, and she said she was worried about my problems in social interaction.
Current teacher 1: She is aware of all my problems, and she knows how to handle me as best as possible.
She wants me not to feel terrified or anxious, and she really tries to make me feeling safe and calm.
This teacher never forces me to be a part of things that I find too difficult. She always asks me "Do you want to do this or just watch?"
She never uses irony, because she knows that I don't understand then. She only uses irony among the other neurotypical kids.
This teacher supports me, and encourage me to do things that are tough. If I don't know how to handle a particular situation, she helps me.
Current teacher 2: He tries socialize me, and I don't really like that so much. All my current teachers are informed about my Asperger's, and this teacher seems to think that I need some treatment, to become "normal". He is nice, but he might think it's alarming that I staringly walk around like a robot. I'm also untouchable and very timid and withdrawn.
He often small talks with me, but I never give any answer back. I turn off myself.
I was afraid of him from the beginning, but I've learned that he is not dangerous.
Bad feelings made me stay home today
posted at 05:10 pm on 03-19-2010
All the anguish went to much for me, hence I decided to stay home from school today.
It's kind of sad, because I have a liking for a few of my teachers. They make sure that I feel good and that I see what's going on in different situations.
I have no idea about how much my teachers know about AS, but they seem to understand my needs very well.
My parents are not kindhearted souls. I think I hate them. I don't want to live with them anymore, but I have to--at least a few years more.
I hope the worry is gone when the school starts on Monday. I am not a skulker, and I hate being home from school. School is a creepy place, but at the same time a place where I can develop myself!
I lent a boy a ruler

Today I was braver than I tend to!
A boy in my class walked around to all my classmates and asked if anyone could lend him a ruler.
We absolutely had to have a ruler, because it was a math test today.
Nobody wanted to, so I walked up to him and said: "Hi, you can borrow my ruler if you want to."
He replied: "Thank you! I'll give it back to you after this lesson."
I usually do not talk to anyone, so this was huge.
