INTERNAT ADVENTURES, CHAPTER ONE

15 CommentsBoarding School ("Internat") Adventures, Memoir

No, this isn’t a spelling error.  “Internat” is German for boarding school,
which is where I ended up for the 68/69 school year.

We were living in Germany at the time.  My mother and I could not get along, which was par for the course. Bound to happen, when you have a rebellious, independent-minded teenager  sharing quarters with a neurotic, perfectionist control freak.  (Sadly, as I got older, these traits were also self-evident, albeit to a lesser degree.)

My father did not participate much in my upbringing and generally went along with whatever my mother wanted.  Easier for him that way.  She kept threatening to ship me off to boarding school, (the one in Switzerland her friend’s kids were attending),  and I started thinking: “Wouldn’t it be nice to get away from here and be able to do what I want?”

    1. Don’t feel sorry, Paul. It was a unique and mind-broadening experience! Thanks for reading and sharing it on Facebook, also. Hope you like Chapters Two and Three, as well. 🙂

  1. Hey I always like a good adventure story
    and this one has such an appealing wickedness
    to it that is telling me NOT TO MISS OUT on
    the second part, but if you could just give me
    a nudge when you add it that would be greatly
    appreciated 🙂 😉 I also like all of your chosen
    pictures on this one too, and that Gestapo
    woman looks real mean so I will be watching
    out for that old bat 🙂 Oops did I say Bat, well
    I will have to think of another one, bats are a
    friendly and most wonderful creature, unlike
    Miss. Sourpants 🙁 lol

    Have a wicked evening Debbie 😉

    1. You SHOULD write an autobiography, Jan! Just take it one step at a time, as I am. This is just a small chapter in a long life. I’m betting you are younger than me! 😉

  2. It is a wonderful read and a funny and easy to digest “diary”. I am looking forward to the following parts.

    1. Thank you G! I really appreciate your interest and all the positive comments. ((HUGS)) Chapter II is percolating in my head. 😀 Have a great weekend, my friend!
