Lost in the crowd no longer

Instead of standing outside at 7 a.m. in the freezing cold for a school bus, I’m still in bed. While other high school students are in their second hour of class, I’m just getting up, making my brother and sister breakfast and sometimes watching an episode of Scooby Doo. That’s because I go to an online high school, Minnesota Connections Academy.
