Today we became full-fledged members of the Active Psychic Students Association.

Actually, we discovered we were already members.

After passing all our screenings, we gave kind of a recital to all the APSA senior members where we performed the weird skits they had us learn. They were just everyday stuff like opening doors and walking into rooms, but each one had something kind of weird and embarrassing in it. We seemed to do a good enough job and we even got a standing ovation.

After that, we were each led to private conference rooms where we met our "sponsors." These were the senior APSA members who were paired with.

And guess what? Our sponsors were US. Future us. My sponsor was ME. Me from the future. But not me from the far future... it was me right up to this moment in time.

I don't really understand it all, but I guess the APSA has been made up of the same students for years and years. Students like me and @Jenny Ondioline and the rest. We've come to Psyhigh, join APSA, find out we're already in the APSA, and sort of become ourselves.

Needless to say, only one of us walked out of our private conference rooms.

So, now I enjoy being a member of the APSA for a few years, and then the new me will start as a freshman at Psyhigh, come to the APSA initiation, and walk through those weird plays until we meet up with ourselves at that very moment. We close some kind of loop?

Anyway, I've got one of those snazzy green jackets now. And it fits real well. Because I've been wearing it for years.

The APSA student leaders are not ordinary students. But I'm not sure if that's good or bad yet.

We continue to go through our "screenings," which have become more and more like theater rehearsal. The audience has been replaced by a director and some additional crew, and we're walked through the blocking for new scenes while we follow along in our scripts.

"Jenny, you've got to hit your MARK! It's right here. See it? The masking tape right here?"

"Yes sir."


He didn't wait for an answer.

"Ok everybody, let's take five."

Actually, I'm starting to be pretty sure the APSA students are jerks. But it's not clear exactly how we can leave the Lake Logres Resort and Spa. Or even if.

Hanging out at Lake Logres Resort and Spa with the APSA kids has been super chill. Even in light of the abduction. It was probably just some kind of hazing ritual.

@Jenny Ondioline and I and a bunch of the other kids have been hanging out around the resort, and the indoor/outdoor infinity pool, or on the little mountain trails. It's beautiful this time of year, and crazy that we get to miss the first weeks of school just so we can be a part of this cool club!

Jenny O is off on one of the screening appointments, which we all have. It comes up on your phone when it's your time. My first ones were about holding shapes inside of a velvet bag with one hand and pointing to a picture of the shape with the other. I liked those because they were easy.

But now they're getting harder... like, you have to put on a leotard and then learn a dance with some fancy dance instructor and then you have to go on stage and do it for a bunch of people. Or the singing coach goes though a song with you once and then you have to perform it in front of the same people. At least it looks like there's a lot of people out there. I'm terrible at signing so it was REALLY embarrassing. Jenny O said she just pretended it was karaoke.

Welcome to the APSA initiation! Here at the beautiful Lake Logres Resort and Spa in the heart of the Black Mountains. And we'd like to thank our sponsor Viviane Travel LLC for their generous assistance in covering our accommodation and travel expenses. Let's have a big round of applause for Viviane! I believe she's with us tonight, yes if you look closely out past the floating dock you can just catch a glimmer in the setting sun.

So, each of you have been brought here to spend a few nights because we feel you've got that "something special" it takes to be an APSA member. And let me tell you we've done our homework! From deep background checks to genealogy to hair and fingernail samples, we know you're the real deal.

We hope you'll be able to unwind and enjoy all that Lake Logres Resport and Spa has to offer, while we all just get to know each other a little better, shall we?

All I saw was a flash of those green jackets, then they put a sack over my head and hauled me out of my dorm room.

Where was my roommate? Where was everybody else? Everything was deathly quiet -- except me. I was yelling and pounding the back of the very large APSA member who was carrying me over their shoulder.

Now I've been in what sounds like a truck for most of the day. And I really need a bathroom.

Is this part of the APSA initiation? Or are they just against people with colored hair for some reason?

Thank you students for your deep interest in the Active Psychic Student Alliance (APSA)!

As Psyhigh's Student Activities Coordinator, the APSA is like my right hand! Or, at least a really important tentacle.

APSA members are specifically recruited for their unique skills and abilities, discovered by our legendary scouts. Always looking for special talents, those scouts!

The APSA motto explains it well: Don't call us. We'll call you.

You'll be hearing from us in the morning.

The APSA kids killed my family.

I tried talking to some of those APSA students in the green jackets for help finding my classes, but they weren't helpful at all.

When I went up to some of them outside the library they just kept talking to each other like I wasn't there. And then when I found some in the cafeteria they just kept looking at their phones and wouldn't acknowledge me either (except to say I should get the app, which they could tattoo onto my skin if I wanted, somewhere in the cellars) and then there are the other ones who just hang outside the back of the gym and vape some sort of nasty alien smelling stuff.

I think the APSA are a bunch of stuck-up elitists who just lord their upper-classperson status over everybody.

So how do I join the APSA?
