Alternative schools are usually smaller schools with flexible schedules created for teenagers who don't work well in a normal school environment.

Common reasons for going to an alternative school: Teen pregnancy, mental illnesses, addiction, learning disablities, and behavior problems.
Jane: I got kicked out of my high school for getting caught with weed. I'm going to an alternative school now.

Luke: That sucks. My cousin goes to an alternative school because she got into too many fights in school.

Jan 18 Word of the Day
1. Blue Monday is the most depressing day of the year, calculated by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a researcher at the University of Cardiff's Center for Lifelong Learning.
Factors used to calculate the date included weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivation and feeling the need to take action.

In 2005 the date was calculated as January 24th, in 2006 it was January 23rd, and in 2007 it was January 22nd.

2. A song by the hard rock band Orgy from their album Candy Ass.
1. Guy: "Aw man, I feel like absolute shit today."
Friend: "Yeah, same here. I hate Blue Monday."

2. "I wish I could sing Blue Monday to my ex-girlfriend, she's such a bitch."
