    She Said: That Time I Accidentally Went To Scientology School

    There was some area that I didn’t fit into and I could never really grasp what it was. Friends would ask me to go and hang out with them only to have their parents call me to cancel.

    “Spencer didn’t have my permission first,” one mother curtly informed me.

    I didn’t get what it was about me that was unacceptable.

    I also didn’t understand why we were expected to do so many things outside of the context of school. I was used to clubs and sports teams, but it was almost as if attending this school meant you were expected to focus your entire social life here. There were weekend parties that felt mandatory, and I remember one particularly odd moment where a black plastic trash bag full of shoes was sent from home to home for us to donate our shoes to.
