today I saw a girl doing cocaine right beside me in the girls’ room.
I walked in on her but she looked at me undisturbed and told me (as if she needed to tell me anything) that it was supposed to give her luck for her exam. to which I nodded and wished her good luck.
Her easiness sniffing the white light powder with me staring at her made *me* feel I was the one wrong there (it only lasted a couple of seconds) then I came back to reality and proceeded to wash my hands.
This was not the first time I witnessed a similar scene but it was definitely the first time *that* close and with a 18/19 year old girl doing it.
I laughed at it when she left – not because it was funny, but because I must’ve looked a bit weird – but I started thinking… where will she go from there? And I remembered all my students, not that different from this girl… It’s just a bit scary.
I’m not trying to say that I’m smelling of roses
But when will we tire of putting shit up our noses?
