Describe in writing a non-traditional method you have used to heal yourself.

Jackie's Itch-Be-Gone Mosquito Bite Remedy:

When I was younger, I used to get bitten by mosquitos all the time. I scratched those suckers so bad that I still have tiny white scar spots all over my legs. Somehow, my brother and I discovered that a little dab of white glue on a fresh (not scratched open) bite seemed to help. A dot of Elmer's, just big enough to cover the bump, kinda pulls the skin tight as it dries. That relieves the itch and keeps you from brushing the bite against something and setting it to itching again.

Then again, it's been a long time since I've tried this, so I can't guarantee it will work for you.

Write down a recent argument.

Caller: My address is _________, Wilmington, DE, 19802. I need to find out the closest bus stop to our house.

Me: (Opens website and looks up address.) Okay, I have that street address, but it's saying 19801, and I'm pretty sure that's not in our district.

Caller: No, it's 19802.

Me: Wait, I understand. You guys moved out of the district and then Choiced your student back in, correct?

Caller: Yes.

Me: Okay. I'm pretty sure that you are responsible for your student's transportation now.

Caller: Yeah, and that's why I'm calling to find out which bus stop I can drive him to so that he can ride a bus in.

Me: No, no. I think you have to actually bring him here yourself. But if you'd like to check on it, let me give you the number to our Choice Officer. Her name is-

Caller: Yeah, I already talked to her and I'm not going to talk to her again. I need to send my student on a bus.

Me: Alright. Hold, please, while I check with another secretary about our policy. (Calls and confirms choice policy with secretary who has been in the district for years.)

Me: Ma'am? I just checked with our 6th grade secretary and she told me that it states on the Choice Application that all Choice participants will be responsible in full for the transportation of their student to the school of their choosing.

Caller: That's ridiculous. I'm calling your district office. (Hangs up.)

Draw the news.

The directions are to look at today's news and pick a person from a news story. Then google image search the person, and make a little colored pencil medley of pictures associated with that person.

Photograph a scar and write about it.


It's difficult to see, but there is a dimple on my foot, between my 3rd and 4th toes (if you count the big one as the 1st). It's about half an inch back from the base of my toes. When I was 11, my mom told me to go get the scissors from my room. I had them open in my hand and I was running. They slipped from my fingers and gouged a neat little divot in the top of my left foot.

Also, I have dimples in my cheeks, but the right one is a lot more noticable than the left one. For a while, I liked to say that my left dimple fell off my face and onto my foot. It's really cheesy, but I don't care.

Give advice to yourself in the past.

Advice to Jackie Bolduc at Age 18

1. Stop wearing pajamas in public and to class. Right now it seems like a cool and casual thing to do, but later on you will cringe to see pictures of yourself so frumpy. You should care about yourself more.

2. Do not date Jenny D. at school or Reggie in NYC. The former will never be butch enough and your breakup will cost you friends. The latter smells like a sweaty baseball cap and lies to you.

3. Do not drive to see The Gossip in West Philly. You told your parents that you'd take the train, and if you drive, you will get in an accident and total your perfectly good Volvo station wagon. So take the train.

4. Get some bangs. I don't know why you haven't already realized that your forehead looks funny without them.

5. Choose to work in the library instead of the scene shop for your work study thing. It will benefit you SO much more.
