School tomorrow has been cancelled for USD 259. (source: KAKE.com)

You heard it here first! (actually you probably didn't but I wanted to post it anyway.)

This is wonderful news for me. I was supposed to have my English oral tomorrow. :D:D

mdngtsleepwalkr6:34pm: Subject: Guess what's happening on Monday?

(Text as sent in e-mail)

That's right--
Amnesty Meeting (Psychology room, 3rd floor- to the right of the Debate room, 303?) because it's definitely time!
(And yes, some of you people receiving this e-mail have never previously acted within AI, but hey- the group needs to get out there and I've done a horrible job with that- and you should come because you think human rights and more important that wasting your time at lunch.)

Plan: As opposed to our AI chapter writing letters, another current ideal of AI is the sending of "messages of support to prisoners and human rights defenders around the world."

Directly quoting Samira Trad, a defender of human rights in Lebanon:
“…Each time I read one of their cards, my heart would be filled with love, courage, and determination. They made me realize that I have friends there and I that would not be forgotten. Friends that I never met but whose souls long for the same values: solidarity, freedom, peace, justice, and equality on earth. I am sure that one day these values will prevail.”

Thusly, I propose we make a slew of cards to send from school (even at lunch some week in the near future we could set something up to have people write in cards we made, maybe?) and over the course of the month carry this project to the public- hey, I'm being idealistic. I'm thinking if we talked to local shops/stores, we could set up for awile and snare common people to sign cards, eh? [And for those of you who are desperate, this is community service hours if we expand- NHS kids: group hours I believe].

Also, if each of you could bring $0.50 - however much you want and/or art supplies, it'd be greatly appreciated, as most of these must be air-mailed which is currently $0.80 for cards weighing up to one ounce in weight.

Cards will be sent to any of the following locations: the US, Turkey, Mexico, Uzbekistan, Syria, Zimbabwe, Belarus, Colombia, and Russia.

Please tell me if you're all good with/or against (as the case may be) the idea a few of us concocted today around lunch, heh.

(P.S. If we (Sumika and I) have to bribe you to come, we just might)

sweet_charade6:27pm: Question for upperclassmen/graduated people
How strict are teachers and administrators about the 10 absences thing?

I've been home all week with some kind of viral infection thing, and I've been sick a few times earlier this year. I'm coming pretty close to 10 absences already and we're barely into the second nine weeks. If this illness doesn't clear up soon (which it may or may not), I could end up over 10 absences now.

I know last year by the end of the year I had 10 absences in GH's class, and he never reported me, either because he didn't notice or because he's just a nice guy. Is that fairly commonplace among the teachers, or am I in trouble?
Current Mood: distressed
cool_green_ivy5:03pm: If you're in Tri-M, don't forget there's a meeting tomorrow at lunch.

sweet_charade5:13pm: Anyone want to help a girl out?
So, I'm supposed to go to the homecoming game tomorrow and get recognized at halftime for being a National Merit Semifinalist, but the problem is I don't have a ride, since my mom's working that night. Would anyone be willing to give me a ride? I live kind of downtown near Harry and Broadway.
Current Mood: hopeful

sweet_charade4:39pm: Is anyone in IB Precalc who could tell me what we did in class on Tuesday and Wednesday? I was at home sick, and I have a feeling I either missed a test or there's going to be a test tomorrow or something. ._.

11th October 2004

sweet_charade5:22pm: This pertains mostly to National Merit people, but.

Who all is going to the WSU luncheon tomorrow? I was gone today, and I don't know if anyone said anything about it or not, but I don't really know what to do. I'm assuming we're not going as a group or anything, right? Should I just have my mom call and have them give me a pass to leave at 11 or so?

Basically, what are you guys doing, since I was lazy and didn't talk to Mrs. Frederickson like I probably should have?

mdngtsleepwalkr8:41pm: Subject: Dear East High- I hate you.

Dear Jerkface in the East High Parking Lot,
At about 3:30 today, I did not appreciate you doing the following
By throwing some random object, presumably a rock, at my right passenger window:


Thanks to you I have a $200+ bill to deal with.

In the future, please:
a. Grow up
b. Don't be an assh*le.

Furthermore, East High, specifically-
Get some better security; I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
Paige Barnum

(P.S. Did I already post this? Yes, but I don't care.)

darkredroses7:39pm: you know how it goes
Is it just me or is school just terrible this year? I also like how the administration is treating us like 5 year olds with their "go zones" and such. I know it wasn't this bad last year or maybe I'm just sick of it already.
What ever it is, I don't think it'll get any better.
amorygatsby7:34pm: Does anyone post here anymore?

mdngtsleepwalkr6:20pm: Subject: Amnesty International (at East)

So this is a rather lame way to spread the word,
but I figure several LJ users do in fact have
An interest in AI/check their Friends Page.

So now that we (likely) have a new sponser;
I imagine it'd be safe to assume that
Sometime soon we can hold a meeting.

For those of you that do not know about Amnesty:
Amnesty International (AI) is a worldwide movement of people
Who campaign for internationally recognized human rights.
Further information can be found at: http://www.amnestyusa.org


Traditionally East has participated in varying campaigns through
Letter writing, but hopefully we'll try a different path this year.

Anyways; I'm just curious as to what interest currently exists.
