guns_in_brixton6:01pm: So, I was just wondering, does Backpacking club exist? Because, really, I meant to go to the meetings but then I forgot what room it was in and what day it was on, etc.
If it doesn't still exist, then it should come back to life. That or like a roadtrip club. Anything with a bit of traveling outside of this side of Wichita really.

Anyway, I know the year is more than half over but it'd still be fun to do something like that one of these weekends or something.

sweet_charade1:25pm: In case anybody didn't know, the Christmas choir concert is tonight.

Any graduates planning on coming, aside from me?

antiquedaisies7:37pm: Drew (drewhilfiger) and I are putting together a group for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. Sound hard? Good. We hope to create a support group to help you write and edit your novel. Although it hasn't been planned entirely yet (look for posters in the hall sometime this week), we've started a community at ehnanowrimo2005. Feel free to join and get advance notice of meetings. Thanks un mucho. Plus, for all you IB-ers, two words: CAS hours.

notlobot8:18pm: Backpacking Club
If you are interested, please attend the first meeting of East High Backpacking Club on Tuesday October 4th in room E325 during Lunch. This meeting is mainly to see how many people are interested and to plan what the club will be doing in the near future. If you have more questions, just ask me and I can pass them on to Rodney Claiborne (the mastermind behind this), or ask Rodney at school.

Cross posted in EastIB, just to make sure no one misses this.

cool_green_ivy7:28am: So, choir and orchestra people...When are the concerts? (I'd especially like to know when the Christmas choir concert is.)

ashley_ray9:07am: Hey! Just in case there is anyone out in LJ land that hasn't heard yet . . . the class of 1996 is beginning to plan the 10 year reunion, and a community has been created here for it: wichitaeast1996.

So if you are a person in this class, or you know someone in this class that hasn't heard about it yet, please direct yourself/them there.

cool_green_ivy4:54pm: Senior issue
The senior issue of the paper came out today, and I was a bit shocked when I read this in the senior advice section: "Don't try your best freshman and sophomore years so there can be room for improvement on your transcript by junior year, when grades count the most." I think Lan Ly has been brainwashed by the College Application Police.

I hope this goes without saying, but don't do that. Colleges won't be impressed.

(Do remember Matt Anderson's advice, though: "Under cooked meat can be very dangerous.")

crazy_faith6:07pm: What? What!
So apparently Senior IB English teacher, Ms. Niles, has finally discovered LJ. I'm assuming it will be rather easy to find this community, let's all give a shout-out to her! What? What! What's up Niles?!

cool_green_ivy6:05pm: Musical Investigation is due Monday (ARGH), and I'm doing mine in the format of a radio interview. The criteria stuff says that you're supposed to cite sources in the Investigation, but if the format doesn't lend itself to internal citations (like mine), you're supposed to make footnotes or endnotes. I've never done any format besides MLA, which uses internal citations. Can you do footnotes with MLA? If not, does anyone have a link to a website about a format where you're supposed to use footnotes? Does it even matter what format (i.e., MLA, APA) you use for a Musical Investigation?

Also, is the discography supposed to be integrated into the bibliography, or is it supposed to be a separate page?

crazy_faith8:20pm: the last days
Wow. That hurt. I just fell out of my chair. XD

Anyways, where was I? Oh yes, East High. I know this might sound kinda mushy and dumb and stuff, but I was sitting in the cafeteria today eating lunch and thinking about how much I really am going to miss East next year. I know some of the people are kind of stupid and loud, but if you think about it, it's really quite an awesome school (especially compared to some of the others in this area). You see, what happened at lunch was on one side of me were some people speaking Spanish and on the other side were some other people speaking Vietnamese (I'm guessing). And I was just thinking about how very unique and awesome it is to just walk down the hallway or eat in the cafeteria and hear as many as three or four different languages spoken all around you at once. I don't know about you, but that usually doesn't happen to me most other places. And I think that's one of the things I'm going to miss about East is its diversity. I mean, I don't think very many other schools have a Multicultural Assembly or a SAP or any of those types of things that teach us of our diversity and help us understand each other. There are just so many things you can do at East that you can't do anywhere else in this area. I feel so blessed to have been a part of so many good things at East. East is so awesome that I dare to say we have more students that transfer to East than anywhere else in Wichita (I might be wrong, but I doubt it). We have almost every kind of club and sport you could possibly imagine. We have the IB Program, which is world reknown. We also have AP and Honors classes. Basically, any kind of class you could possibly imagine you can probably take at East. We definitely have a unique mascot that I think embodies the spirit of Wichita (esp. seeing as how we are the first actual high school in Wichita). Not to mention we're also the biggest high school in Kansas, which adds to our diversity. AND (most) of the students in our school actually CARE about the world, what's going on around us. We see a need and take action, which is why we have so many service clubs. And that is definitely a good thing. We are showing people that teenagers can in fact be thoughtful, caring, and productive members of society. And it is awesome. I wouldn't want to have gone anywhere else.

Sorry if perhaps I have rambled a little bit too long on this subject. And I know I'm being maybe too sentimental (I mean, I am a Senior and all). But seriously, folks, we should always be thankful for all the wonderful things we do have. I'm not saying that our school is perfect (by any means), but I am saying that there are just so many opportunities to do good at school. And I'm proud to have played a small part in all of it. I really am going to miss our old East High after all. Gracias.

sweet_charade4:02pm: Are any of you interested in participating in the Day of Silence?

For those who don't know, the Day of Silence is, basically, a day where students nationwide choose to remain silent. (You would have never guessed, huh?) Our silence for this day represents the silence that gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered persons face on a daily basis because of discrimination and prejudice. If you have a French oral or a Choir thing you have to do, that's acceptable, and you shouldn't let that stand in the way of participating -- just don't talk when it's not required. Nationally the day of Silence is Wednesday, April 13, but because we have state music festival that day, we are holding it tomorrow.

We made T-shirts in our last GSA meeting for the event, but anybody who wants to can participate, with or without a shirt. We have also printed off cards explaining what the Day of Silence represents, that you can safety-pin to your shirt and wear for the day. If anyone is interested in participating, and wants a card and a safety pin, see me (Angelique, the girl in the icon) in Senior Hall during PLC time tomorrow. Since I'll be wearing one of the shirts, I shouldn't be hard to spot.

If you want more info on the project, go to http://www.dayofsilence.org.

sweet_charade6:35pm: Does anyone know if the school is open with staff members there on weekends? I left my backpack in the library after a GSA event that took place there, and I really don't want to go all weekend without it.

Only two and a half-ish months left...

15th February 2005

sweet_charade9:18pm: Are we on any kind of weird schedule tomorow while various people "get their test on"? ... There are some kind of tests tomorrow, right? I'm not hallucinating?

I kind of meant to find out while I was at school but then I got extremely lazy. :D

Also, did anyone aside from me and people I pointed it out to notice that the flyers they put up all over the school about the assessments said "Are you ready get your test on!" on them? More like, are administration ready be grammatically correct.

EDIT: Except that um, I fail at looking at my agenda and getting weeks right. Thaaaaaaat's next week, never mind. (Except what about the announcement Mr. Carroll made 7th hour?)

cool_green_ivy10:07pm: Tsunami Dinner
If you are in choir and would like to provide background music at the tsunami fundraiser dinner on March 17 (time not yet certain), OR if you would like to auction yourself off at said dinner as background music for some other event (say half an hour to an hour of music), please e-mail me, Ruth, at rahrahzipboombah@gmail.com. (Also, if you have questions, or if this was too confusing, e-mail me.)

crazy_faith5:47pm: No school+No spanish notebook+spanish oral on Friday=not good
I feel like hitting myself in the head right now b/c my Spanish oral is on friday, but I don't have my spanish folder to study from for it. I really didn't think on Tuesday that they would cancel school two days in a row, so I didn't take it home with me. So how am I supposed to study now? Therefore, I was wondering if anyone who takes Spanish 4 from Senor Shelly could e-mail me the final vocab list and the requirements for the final oral. It would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks so much and happy snow days!
