Mimi's got her baggage too!
So do you!
[/random RENT song in my head]
I'm up way too late. But oh well, right? You're only young once and all that jazz.
I suppose today was alright, looking back on it all. Could've been better but compared to the absolute HELL of yesterday...it was like a cakewalk.
I'm excited for Spring Break. Just 5 more days. 35 more periods. 15 more *actual* classes. That's only 630 minutes. 10 and a half hours. And in the grand scheme of things...that is nothing.
So yes. Rock and roll all night. Party every day.
Ended up going to bed at 2am yesterday (or...erm...today) because I'm silly and was helping Jason with his web design. So me and my knack for organization, consistency and color scheme. ;-)
Jason: see, i hate designing (and am not very good at it), but i'm really good at programming and like doing it. so, we should team up!
Me: Yay! I can make stuff pretty, and you can make it work
Fun stuff. ;-)
Then this morning my first alarm (the cell phone one) decided to go off at 5:56, instead of the 7:10 it was set for. Demonic piece of shit. I can't remember if I reset it...I think I did, but really I could have been dreaming. Either way, it didn't go off (or I shut it off without hearing it) at 7:10 as well...and my back up alarm didn't bother going off. Mama yelled down the stairs at 7:24, saying "Shouldn't you be getting up now?"
Didn't have time to pack a lunch, so I went without today.
However, during Econ they were reviewing a test that I hadn't taken yet, so I got the entire period free and I bought myself a muffin. I finished it in Company (where we are not allowed to eat) just because I could without getting yelled at. Teacher's pet? Maybe a little. But I damn well deserve it. Carl even mentioned today about (without listing names) the unequal distribution of work and how he was getting email at 2:30 in the morning.
Come on, Carl...it was obviously marked 2:22. But yeah. He appreciates that I worked my ass off. And Eric appreciated that I took charge and organized stuff on Friday. And Susan appreciated that I went in yesterday to help with the theatre games on a Sunday. So yeah. I'm loved in the theatre program. And that makes me happy.
And Chorale was one of the best and most productive and nicest sounding classes that we've had in a while. I even went up to Akers after class to tell her. It was just really good. And it made up for the $1.50 I wasted on a Snapple when I dropped it (before having opened it) and it exploded on the floor of the cafeteria. Suck my ass, Snapple! >:-O
I made up the Econ test later that day, and it was really pretty easy. Or at least the multiple choice was. The other part...I was just clueless. Granted, I haven't learned this stuff since last Monday, so.
In Dance we did Pilates. We'll be doing them tomorrow too. Hard, but so cool. I could definitely feel the burn! Woo!
Crew was canceled due to the "nice day", so Candace, Goldy, Johnson and I went to Maplewood Park. Then Jason came, and later (around 5:20) Rob came. I had to leave at 5:45...but the 2 hours we spent there were so good. It was SO BEAUTIFUL outside. We flew a kite and played frisbee! Whee!!
Then I had an appointment with Dr. Lady #2. Talked the entire time about Saturday. Mmm...hell.
Now I'm home and fine. Eating some dinner that I whipped up (frozen pizza, water and a pudding cup. Exciting) and working on starting homework.
Things that bothered me today -OR- The soapbox of assumption:
1) These dumbass girls talking in the courtyard about the war...who were obviously misinformed on a lot of things. Then they said how great Michael Moore's speech was and how "even though they were all booing, he like totally didn't care, and I was like, war is bad."
Punch. Them. In. Face.
2) This *cough cough* very conservative kid in my theatre class. I know it's not good when you're in a leadership position to pick favorites...but can I pick him as my least favorite? Does that still count?
Anyway, at the end of class, we start talking about the Oscars. Someone brings up Michael Moore and how inappropriate his actions were.
And there sits stupid!boy with a stupid smirk on his face that says "Yes, he's an idiot. And obviously the war is good. And obviously the people in the audience were booing because they support the war."
Wanted to punch the kid. Why? Maybe I mistook what that stupid smirk meant?
Uh, no I didn't. And either way! Being anti-'Michael Moore using the Oscars as a platform for politics' IS NOT the same as being PRO-WAR.
I didn't think was he did was tasteful. And I don't agree with his ultra-liberal thinking. BUT! I am against the war, and I do support our troops.
Gray area, folks. People have gray area. We are not black-and-white. We are not "this, therefore this". We cannot assume one thing or another based on someone's age, race, gender, sexual preference, religion, location, wealth, or political affiliation.
I am a liberal. I support strict gun control laws and women to choose whether or not they want an abortion. I also support the death penalty...which is typically a conservative viewpoint.
So PLEASE. Do not assume that when I say "Michael Moore is an ass and an idiot" that I support Bush, the war, and your damn conservative values.
I respect your values. I really do. It may not sound as such because I have a hard time swallowing pills that aren't mine. But I believe that everyone is entitled to his opinion. And I believe that everyone should be able to back up his opinion with evidence. So don't assume things about me that aren't true. Or I will lose all respect for you.
I just spent far too long trying to find the words (or rather the spellings of words) to Salmo 150...a latin song we're singing in Chorale.
In other news, I'm really tired and heading to bed. Have I finished One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest? Why no...I haven't. But if anyone of you has, I'd love a brief synopsis.
Laudate Dominum in sanctis eius,
laudate eum infirmamento virtutis eius.
Laudate eum in virtutibus eius;
laudate eum secundum multitudinem magnitudinis eius.
Laudate eum in sono tubae;
laudate eum in timpano et choro,
laudate eum in chordis et organo.
Laudate eum in cymbalis bone sonantibus,
laudate eum in cymbalis jubilationis.
Omnis spiritus laudet Dominum.
Laudate Dominum, Alelluia.
*Though there are a lot of "laa la-la"s and repeating throughout. That's the main gist though. And it's fast...and latin!
