(no subject)

I can honestly say yesterday was the best of my life so far.

Today I'm sore all over, I realized I had a spring in my shoe all day yesterday, and I have to go to Spanish mass in an hour, but fuck that all.

I now also have five t-shirts, two cds, four stickers, and four buttons.

Oh and I did a little bit of skanking. And moshing.

And saw Catch 22 perform "Keasbey Nights" live. 

I'm going to go take a few pills now.

I feel so poor.

Every once in a while, I get a renewal of sorts. I guess the freakishly warm weather did it to me today, but nevertheless, I just needed the boost of energy from nowhere. I was able to do nearly all of my homework in one sitting and I even took a crack at the sonnet I need by Thursday.

I did buy all the stuff I needed for the sonnet project (leather, cord, inks, cardstock) so I just need the sonnet. Ironic, I can't write it and the subject is loss of creativity.

Everyday I get more and more information from colleges. Normally I'd feel great since these are awesome schools, but then comes the horrible reality that I don't have the money for it. And the worse sting is I hang out with kids that get cars for their 16th birthdays, are forced to go on international trips, and more or less have a lot of money. I know it's not her fault, but I just feel so poor. I almost wish that I could just get a fucking huge loan and go to Vandy or Duke or Chicago just because I know I could get in. At this point, I think I only have MTSU or UT of K as choices.

The very worst part is I know in the next two years, there will be so much more college angst.

I am really pissed off.

"I am opposed to any form of tyranny over the mind of man."

Yesterday Oak Ridge High School censored The Oak Leaf due to articles pertaining to contraceptives, abstinence, and body piercing. The administration's actions in this matter were rash and unreasonable, not to mention unlawful because of The Oak Leaf's public forum status. It doesn't matter what the subject is, I am strongly against censorship. Despite any hostility I've expressed toward The Oak Leaf (which everyone at ORHS has), I support Brittney and the rest of the Oak Leaf staff.
I just heard about this yesterday from Mr. Pickering and never realized how huge this shit would get. I've heard legal action, by the one teacher who runs the paper, against the princial/ school board.

Here is the article that caused The Oak Leaf, the ORHS paper, to be censored. It made it onto the front pages of the Knoxville News Sentential and the Oak Ridger.
