"You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness." You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself." -Breakfast At Tiffany's


Cell Phone Situation:

So today after plenty of research on the phone I wanted and plans for phones and all this phone talk, blah, I finally asked my mom if she would get me a cell phone this summer. At first I was a tad nerves because I thought the moment I even said the world cell she would automatically tell me no, and go on about God knows what for the next ten minutes about nothing that had to do with cell phones at all. But when I told her if she would think about getting me a cell phone this summer, she agreed that I did need a cell phone and that it would be a good thing to get one. So I showed her phones I had been looking at on T-mobile (the service she carries) and they have blackberries on the site for discounts at 74.99 and 149.99 for the blackberry curve 8900 and blackberry curve- Titanium. Just incase you don’t know the only difference between the two is memory and that’s it. I have 70 dollars on me were I could by the titanium blackberry, even though I would like the 8900 but it’s alright. If my mom did get my the titanium blackberry the monthly bill for it will be 94.98 for the plan I want to get put on and the blackberry service plan for unlimited text and web. She told me that because she is already paying a 80 something bill for her phone now that she isn’t going to be able to pay the full amount for her and my cell phone. And basically that I need to find someone else that will pay the other half of the bill, so for right now I’m asking our family friend and old roommate Jeff if he will help out (if they split the bill they both will be only paying 47 dollars a month basicly) Since before my cell phone got stolen he was the one paying for my cell phone, and I told him I would give him the money back that he at originally gave me for the beach, since I doubt that will be happing anytime soon and told him basically what I wanted in a phone which is a reasonable amount of anytime minutes and unlimited web and text access and I showed him the two blackberry I was looking at. So hopefully he will email me back and we will see what we can do, and hopefully in the next couple of weeks he will be able to get me a cell phone. Let’s hope for the best, yes? (:



Good Advice From A Good Friend:

"You Know I Hate Losing Friends Or Going Far Away From Them. The Word Bye, I Just Hate That Word So Much And I Feel Bad Whenever I Say The Word. It's Like Telling That Person I'm Never Going To See You Again. But I Guess Thats The Way Life Is Sometimes. Something Is Going To Happen Or Someone Is Going To Leave. It's Just Gonna Happen All The Time And You Just Have To Get Use To It....Who Knows What Is Going To Happen In The Future? When Someone That You Love Says Bye To You, Never Say It Back To Them. I've Experienced It Shannon, I know What Its Like. It Will Feel Like Your Losing One Of The Most Valuable Thing In Your Life, And Its The Most Difficult Thing To Replace." -Aden Mabruk (june 5th, 2009)


The School District.

So on the forth of July I found out I will not be going to my high school of choice Richland Northeast next year because of where my house is located. We were asked in the middle of July to send in a letter to the school board asking permission to go to RNE next year, and that they would send me my report card and my schedule for next year. Well that apparently isn’t happening, I will be going to AC Flora next year for my sophomore year. What I don’t understand is that the school board will let people who live thirty-forty five minutes away go to any school they want in a district two school zone, but they won’t let someone who lives ten-fifteen minutes away go to a school in Richland district two. For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, in South Carolina there is a law that was made by the school board that as long as you are in a certain school zone (for all my life it was been Richland District school zone 2) you can go to whatever school you want to IN that school zone, but if your not, they will make you go to whatever school zone you are in (which now for me in Richland district school zone 1). I have had great attendance this year, (unless I was sick) and I have NEVER had a problem with transportation to and from school, so I don’t see what the big deal is. I heard from one of my teachers that is has to do with taxes, well if the school board is so powerful enough to tell me which school I CAN AND CAN’T GO TO, then why aren’t they powerful enough to switch the taxes that we pay? It makes no since to me. The best excuse they could give us in the letter they sent back was that “she is not in her residential zoning area; also there is no Richland school district two policy that supports your request.” I’m going to need a better excuse then that. I just can’t seem the understand why we can’t go to a school we choose to if we can get to and from the school with no problem. But, I guess that’s how to system is. But I have thought over what I’m going to do if things didn’t work out the way I had hoped. I plan on going my sophomore year at AC flora and depending on how that year goes I will decide weather or not I want to do residential stay at Governor School for the Humanity and the Arts, and major in drama. I wanted to go to governor school during the summer but I didn’t because I knew it would get in the way of colorguard. Again for those who don’t know what governor school is, its basically like a college, you live at the school (which is near Greenville) for a regular school year, then come back during the summer, it’s a school for those who want to excel in arts and humanities, and I fall under that category. The also give away financial aid and scholarships for the governor and for some college, I would recommend it for any high school student. Residential stay is only for juniors and seniors, but the summer classes are for rising 9th graders and so on through 12th, and instead of staying during the school year, you stay during a little bit of the summer.

But anyway I guess that’s really all I have to say about my plan and what happened over the last couple of days for those of you who didn’t understand and wanted to know.
