Okay, first of all, all I have to say is Greg Maddux. Didn’t we learn our lesson the LAST time we let him go? The end. (Because if I go into it anymore, I may begin to rant and rave.)

10:44AM - Hmmm...
if i hear about how quiet i am and how i "don't talk, don't say anything!", one more time, i may projectile vomit. since when is being reserved, polite and quiet a character flaw? i kinda see it as a kind of lost art in this day and age. i'm a listener, not an in your face "look at me" type person. deal with it.

Well, thanks to the wonderful-ness of life and my journalism class, I found out the end result of the first story I was complaining about last night. It seems that the superintendent of the school actually has some common sense, unlike the principal, and after hearing the actual facts of the case, canceled the hearing almost immediately and is giving the boy the chance to finish his schoolwork from when he was suspended and get his grades back up. (He got an F in CITIZENSHIP of all things...ha!) I love the last quote by the little guy: "'I know I did the right thing,' he said, 'and I need to do the right thing no matter what they say or do.'" AMEN! Maybe he WILL continue to be a good kid from now on.

Yeah so I've definitely heard some depressing stuff on the news lately. You would think I would now talk about the Iraq war, horrible weather, etc. But no...I'm talking about the poor kids of today. I would hate to be one of them. Just last week I was intrigued enough to stay with the news to find out that a school was considering suspending or expelling (I don't remember) a boy because he brought a Swiss Army knife to school. Okay, no problem...BUT I then find out that the boy claimed he and his dad had been using it when fishing that weekend and after slipping it in his pocket, he forgot about it. Okay, a small problem because it was the dad telling us this and sometimes parents will believe ANYTHING their darling angels tell them. THEN, here's the killer: The poor kid had the decency and brains to TURN THE KNIFE IN and that's when the school admin. found out about it and decided to think about suspending and/or expelling the little guy. WTF? Even if he brought it to school on purpose, he obviously realized that what he was doing was wrong and that it would be best to come clean and turn it in....detention or Saturday school would be plenty (and even that would be unfair if he were telling the truth about forgetting it was in his pocket). What are we teaching our young ones these days about honesty here folks? Now, whenever a kid (especially at that school) has to deal w/something that goes wrong, accidentally or not, they are going to think twice, because they will get in trouble if they go to their teachers/admin...and it's hard enough to be honest when you are a kid that age. That kid could have just as easily not told anyone and kept it to himself the entire day and I'm sure no one would have been the wiser and he would have been home with no difficulty. But no, the kid does the right thing and he gets in mucho trouble. Ugh...I feel for ya buddy. I don't know the ultimate result of the situation but if you get expelled/suspended...I'm sorry that you will probably never do the right thing again. You were a good kid while it lasted.

I had to post this, but I can't elaborate much because I really have some stuff to do. This was my away message from Thursday night till about Friday night because I love Hinkle so much. It was definitely worth skipping all the horrible amounts of homework that I had that night to watch that documentary. (And, I'm happy to report that I wrote that entire paper in about an hour and 15 minutes [now, I just want to see the grade...I think it was pretty quality for writing it on the deadline, but it's the first paper for this prof so we'll see]...and all my other classes were easy to get through albeit not having read the assignments...phew!):

5:16PM - Photography class
Okay, so this is my first post ever from IN class. Yes, I know...I shouldn't, but there's nothing else to do! I was told this class sucked and I should have listened, but it's an easy A. Seriously, if I don't kill myself at some point during these lovely 2 and a half hour Thursday night classes, it might be a miracle. Our prof literally just told us that 1) you shouldn't take the CF card out of the camera while the camera is ON (ummm...really!?!?) and 2) you won't get a very good picture with the lens cap on. Uh huh. So anyway...I'm not really listening (because they are learning things about a different camera that I already know how to do on my camera) so I'm sure I've missed a lot more genius from this woman. I know she has to be aware that some people in this class aren't official photogs like snobs like me and deal with that fact accordingly, but SERIOUSLY...how many people don't own or have played around with a digital camera (or any camera for that matter)? Film cameras too...we have grown up in an age FULL of technology...if you don't tell us, we'll usually figure it out. Be patient, Juli...be patient. Try to listen and go along with it. Take amazing photos, turn them in every week and just...be...patient! Breathe and count down from 10....9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1.

Oh I suppose I can post. I mean, it's not like I haven't actually REALLY done it in what, forever! Besides, I'm at work (yeah, I know) and this won't be anything earth-shattering, but...I'm bored. I've been going through old transcripts and putting labels on them (the popular middle names of the late 60s appear to be Marie and Anthony) and now I'm sitting here listening to the horrible drone of the scanner here that sounds sicker and sicker every time I use it. I think it's about to die. RIP. Because of it, though, I brought in headphones to listen to some music and hopefully drown out the noise. So I plug them in and press play on the cd...and in the process, since it's on WAY too loud, I really think I burst one or both of my eardrums. :( Not really, but I DO have a monstrous headache now and it's not cool. I just saw a thing on the news about how kids our age are losing their hearing so much sooner than people should. Eek. I think I'm doomed. However, I would rather be bored and going deaf than wanting to scrape my eyeballs out with a wooden spoon because of any one of the classes I had to put up with last semester. Got my grades yesterday...not as bad as I was dreading but I'm still really mad. First C for a grade...EVER. :( Grrrrrr to astronomy. There was no reason it had to be THAT hard as an intro-level course that fulfills a requirement for any number of majors. Oh well, it's over. I got my requirement filled. I'm on to bigger and better things..but that damn C+ will still be there every time I get a transcript and urrrrggg...
