Well, SOLSC Day 2! Time for a slice of my life:
In the mornings, students wait outside the doors to our school, I don't really know why, but it helps with crowd control and keeps us from breaking the school. So, standing with a group of people, one of the girls in the group noticed a lady waking a dog, now, this dog was really skinny, you could count the ribs, and someone made a joke that she needed to feed her dog. I don't know whose idea followed, but someone thought it would be funny to all yell at her to feed her dog. Granted, more people than not thought that this was a bad idea, including me, so they counted down, and 3 or 4 of them shouted out "Feed your dog!" and began laughing, until the woman turned around. I ditched and merged into another group of people, and pretended to be looking at my friend's Ipod, not wanting to get in unnecessary trouble. The people that did yell tried to run, but the woman recognized them, and told them how she had just adopted the dog, and it was a rescue dog, and how to show a little more respect in the future. Luckily, I was unnoticed, and didn't get in trouble at all.However, the assistant principal of my school saw the events, and talked to those who were scolded, and was not happy at all. Those who were busted had to write a letter of apology, and do community service. Granted, what those people did was stupid, but I disagree with their punishment. I personally do not think that the school should require them to write a letter of apology, I'm sorry, but my school is not my mother, I'm going to look for my moral lessons elsewhere, thank you.I understand disciplinary actions when there is something inside the building, and even if there is a serious offense on the school grounds. But, that kind of scolding from the administrative staff for a couple people making a stupid joke, then getting told off already? That seems like overkill to me.For instance, if something like that on the street, the recipient would tell you off, and you would realize that you were a jerk, and that would be the end of it. However, I also find some fault in the woman. I'm sure she knew it was a joke, and that the group of kids were just being knuckleheads, and she could have just kept walking. Now, this next part is going to come out wrong, but I think that that is a problem that many older women, and some men, have, they don't understand when something's a joke, and feel the need to tell someone off. I don't really know, but that's just based off my observations, and the ListServe...
So, DC Legalized Gay Marriage! Take THAT Archdiocese!!! But, it's more than showing the Catholic church what's what (My church is FULL of hippies, gays, and lesbians, go figure) but if the country's capital can do it, why not the rest of the country?
I am confident without a doubt that if Kurt Cobain was still alive, he would have, at one point, gone on a really great harmonica tour, and it would have been the greatest things ever. Now, since he's gone, Dave Grohl, if for some unforeseen reason, you stumble across my blog, I'm a huge fan! But, you have to do the harmonica tour! It's all up to you man! Also, why not start off back in Northern Virginia, you know, that place where you grew up? kthxbai
That's about it for today. Well, tomorrow I have a concert, so, sleap would be nice. Thanks for reading this far!
