Writer's Block: Talk of the town

If you were given your own talk show, who would your first guest be, and why?

I'd call up Katy Perry and discuss Kathy Beth Terry.

Happy Last Day And The Catholics Don't Give Me Hope

Been awhile since I've been here. The weather in Ohio has finally broke, my seasonally acne is trying (and failing) to take over my face and the school year is over I can practically taste the summer of 17 on my lips.

Oh course unlike last year I won't be going away the whole summer. And yet wander lust is on the rise in my heart. This is probably (hopefully) my last summer in Cleveland so maybe it's anticipation or maybe it's time for one of those random teenage dream road trips there's billion and one movies about. I am not the only one in the mood to get away. I'm thinking Chicago or New York maybe L.A.

Moving on I have the most upsetting news. So my Catholic school, which I know have mixed feelings about, fired one of my favorite theology teachers for standing up for a homosexual student. Well technically the Catholic Dioceses of Cleveland fired her. You what had happened was she was at a citywide theology teacher's meeting and one "teacher" made remarks saying that a gay student and Ms. K wasn't having that so they fired her right the next day. She wasn't present for the senior graduation, or finals week or the last day of school all for standing up for equal rights. :(

Emo Days

Feeling Some Type of Way

I just don't know anymore. It's like I'm just waiting for my life to ya know start. Here I am 17, a good student, poor as a field mouse and with what feels like few people (if any) I can say honestly understand me. I'm sorry I'm getting emo I'm on ,y period but I don't know I just feel so unaccomplished and empty. My so called best friend is acting brand new, I'm envious of my in college sister, and my parents never liked me, etc. I don't know what brought these feelings on all of a sudden. Well maybe that's a lie. I was looking though Steven Tyler autobiography trying to decide if I should get it and it really depressed me seeing how much he's done with his life and how little I've done with mines. Well to be fair he's 63 and had nothing but luck but still. I hell I don't know. I'm feeling anxious, lonely, sad, and tiny bit hopeful. I just want to be successful basically. What what does success mean? I don't know. I'm going to try to figure it out.

Now Entering Day Three of No Twitter

Well after what might have been one of the best weeks of life (school was canceled twice, I meet my hero, poetry week in English class) I found out my Twitter has been suspended. All things considered, this isn't too bad since I was expecting something much worse to happen but still I've been getting help from customer service and it is a serious pain in the ass.

I'm Sorry I Can't Hear You Over the Sound of How Awesome Today Was

Well today I my cooperate work study day. As usual I had very little work to do and spent time surfing the web and giving councilmen undeserved senses of accomplishment (my program was coordinated by my private school). But it was actually 73 degrees and my mommy gave me some money so I was able to meet my friend Ariel for lunch. That was a lot of fun because she had the best gossip for the NOLA trip (New Orleans Spring break service trip). Apparently my gaydar is right on target. However I will keep my shut but it's seriously two transparent closets. I highly doubt anyone would be shocked.

While Ariel was in warm, sunny, cultural New Orleans, I was in on the Cleveland service trip team living in a rundown retreat house. But of course the trip was all bad. We did a lot of work for people experiencing homelessness. It completely change my view from: "unable to care for themselves" to "there are a variety of factors that contribute to this dilemma. Something I should have realized living in the second poorest nation in America but I'm so wrapped up in myself I hardly acknowledge a homeless person be on giving them my left over shopping money. Sometimes. It really made me reevaluate my thinking.

We also did work for refugees, played kick ball with children in a domestic violence shelter and cleaned up a beach. During our down time we went to see an IMX movie (Born to Be Wild) and got too damn serious with board games (in a fun ways). I got to know some freshmen I otherwise would have not notice. Yup it was fun. Until my friend went batshit crazy.

So my friend Cheryl, who is the same age as me, actually took a picture of her boobs and showed it to all the freshmen whom are 14-15. And if that wasn't crazy enough she's obsessed with our Jesuit Volunteer, who's a cutie in a harmless-teacher-crush way, and just told everyone about it in a not so harmless way. In a you-should-be-locked-away way (way). And on top she would not shut up. No I mean if you wanted to say anything she's go on a ten year story about her mother's aunt's baby shower or something crazy like and she'd repeat the same story over and over again. She damn near ruined the service trip for me.

The worse part is I was the one that convinced her to go (I taught she needed to get out more).

Back to how this day was good: I got to vent about all this to my friend who completely understood. It just feels so good to share sometimes. Also my high ACT score really brighten up my day. Oh and I got a coloring book :)

Retreat to the Barracks! xD


Well I go to a Catholic school and everyyear the take us on retreat. Last year's retreat was a real drag. Basically the most shallow, fakest people sent all day crying about how suckier their lives were, which would have been great if we actually tried to work though them. But the enough about the bad. This year's retreat (last Saturady) was a blast. We ate like every three hours, played games, sung Katy Perry it was a lot of fun for once. And I found this really awesome shell. I named it Toni but it's a boy :)

Oh course with all the fun at the retreat was really just a set up. Oh my God they loaded up the homework on us like it was going out of style. Three freaking huge projects back to back, quarterly grades were due, service projects, we had to recuse the princess and save the world again lol. They weren't playing when they said Junior year will kick your ass. However I'm determined make this an ass kicks you type thing. Team college bound does not play xD.

This has been a great week for me. I got my summer job at City Hall, Joe Cimperman is following me on twitter, I had my spring break service trip orientation (well I was late but no one noticed), and the piece of la resistance:

MY NATIONAL HONORS SOCIETY INDUCTION CERMORY WAS ONE THRUSDAY!~
 
It was a beautifully touching ceremony. Me and 10 other juniors (and three seniors) and our marshals walked across the stage while our bios and praise were read aloud. We held candles and recited the pledge. My feet were killing me but I never smiled so much in my life. Other people's guest came up to me and told me I was beautiful and says she hopes to vote for me. But of course my parents being my parents tried to upset me (that not teenage over dramatics they treat me like crap seriously).Good luck making that your damn accomplishment becasue you weren't even mentioned in the "I'd like to thank" section.

So it's Finally Happened

I've been accepted into the National Honors Society! I was so nervous when I got nominated because it was a two week application process and in those two weeks let me tell you: I was flipping out. My mind just came up with five hundred reasons why I would be rejected (i.e. Too many people applied, I did too many clubs they won't believe I was dedicated, it's racist xD). But when I got my letter everyone was so proud of me. Except of course but whatever I'm National Honor Society the nation thinks I'm honorable so I don't need my parents approval. I wasn't going to get it anyway.
