principal wasn't professional enough to have a straight conversation with you?
True, but keep in mind the time difference. She emailed me after hours (19:20) and May in Polish schools is always hectic due to the matura exam season. It's not like I don't think that it's kinda shitty of her to not do it in person, but it's more than likely that she genuinely had no time. But I don't want to make excuses for it so think of it as me just laying down some possible background.
do you want to find another outlet for that?
Absolutely! And it's not like there aren't any other schools that would go for it. I just don't know if I want to do it just this second. Not gonna lie, this situation bummed me out and I'll likely give it a rest until the next semester.
