senior year, college and other things


wow, it's been over a year since i last updated...
i decided to update on my senior year so i have every year of high school written out.
lets see if i can remember things..

SENIOR YEAR!
  1. Wind Ensemble- i was so scared when i found out i would be in this band.i wasn't a fan of having to be in class a little bit earlier than everyone else. anyway, i'm so glad laura was in band with me and sat next to me. it made everything so much better. we had a good homecoming football game, even though we lost, and the marching through the hallways was fun like always. playing godzilla eats las vegas was a ton of fun! i love how everyone was into it. we applied for midwest and we were almost selected to go which was soo cool. the committee only selects 4 bands and we were in 5th place. it was good, but so much hard work. i really enjoyed playing sunrise at angels gate. For our trip this year we went to Virginia Beach!!!! Everything from the bus ride to the aquarium to the beach to acutally playing our pieces to busch gardens and the cruise was so amazing. who could forget that gang that was outside the hotel?? good times. i cant believe i was going to quit band every year. im so glad i didnt. i love these memories.
  2. Math- well it wasnt a class i looked foward to, but i enjoyed it while i was there. i miss mr. krom so much. he was such a good teacher.  very straight to the point and all that. i didnt know anybody in that class really but it was great getting to know christine sitting in front of me.
  3. English Lit- there were some very fun and exciting moments. the corner that me, nia, and alicia fell in love with haha. participating in that food drive and winning that free breakfast! going to see that weird video game version of antigone lol. tims SIP dance was really good. i also got closer to a ton of people in that class like taylor, zach. i also got to know rob because we had that class together. it wasn;t that bad of a class.
  4. Lunch! haha every year i mention who i sat with. but i cant do that this year cause there were sooo many people. on days 246 it would be me, steve, laura, liz, danielle, anthony and other people i can't remember for the first half of the year. then second semester everybody had a free period during 4th, so it was just one large group. we had some awesome times. going to the school store, waiting in line for lunch, and the rest...
  5. Government- awkward class. everyone was pretty much democrat except for maybe 5 people. but there were plenty of good discussions. the time when kelsey started saying she will not read anything that oprah puts on her book club list. then she walked out of the room and never came back after we all kinda bashed her for saying that haha. at the end of the year when mrs. battaglia handed us diplomas and when we opened them up they were acutally voter registration papers. nia calling me an alien everyday. me saying i cant vote every day. watching manchurian candidate after the ap exam was over and we had nothing else to do for the last 3 weeks. and watching the west wing!!
  6. Sociology/Psychology- wow. good classes! i miss them so much. i definitely have to say this was my favorite part of the day. in sociology when she gave us that test with fill in the blanks and the answers were given to us for the second page. working with hannah and nikki for the final exam and doing that survey and going through the results. psychology was definitely better. watching mean girls, one flew over the cukoos nest, sybil. we watched so many movies, wow. staring out the window hahah. ED!!! wriggly eye brows. my iced tea is cold. making popcorn and ashley throwing the box at my head. he keeps staring at me!! the babies!!! my baby died. =[
  7. Gym- my favorite gym class ever! our team won the junior/senior volleyball tournament! me, laura, lisa, tim, trevor , brian, ben, and rj owned. winning the round robin part 7-0 then going on to win the in the finals and missing the entire day of school! amazing!!!!!!! then of couse the dancing unit was always fun. taking that gym test that didnt count. kan jam!!! me, tim, trevor, laura, hannah, ali, lyndsey, rj and brian winning cookie day!! making it to the ping pong badminton tourney and missing my morning classes! gym was so fun that year.
  8. French- it was so weird having a really small class cause the seniors werent there. nate was the only guy in the class. we had a ton of laughs. going to UB to see that play we read. that really funny guy with the weird noises and provocative moves lol. having parties every friday. justine going into the bathroom and getting yelled at by the freshman who were eating there.
  9. free/health- it was good first semester. we had fun playing all those card games and what not. my favorite was going to michaels and buying shirts for halloween.  the list. things being awkward in the middle cause someone decided to date haha. there is too much to write about health class. at first i thought i was going to hate it. but in the end it turned out to be alright. its just that it was at the end of the day. chads laugh. what is the average heart rate of a human being?(best thing ever), monaco telling the real story of the pencil stabbing that happened in 8th grade. his retelling of his maybe true meeting of elvis. svensen!!! how could i forget her? nodding of her head 24/7.  artery clogging lol. too many good times.

yes. senior year was truly amazing.
college is good though. ive made some really good friends here.

i do miss life in buffalo though.
i missed right night. tear.
i am going to miss the turkey bowl =[
i miss watching sabres games!

columbine, va tech...when will it end?

No one sits with him, he doesn't fit in
But we feel like we do when we make fun of him
Cause you want to belong do you go along?
Cause his pain is the price paid for you to belong
It's not like you hate him or want him to die
But maybe he goes home and thinks suicide
Or he comes back to school with a gun at his side
Any kindness from you might have saved his life
Heroes are made when you make a choice

You could be a hero
Heroes do what's right
You could be a hero
You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join the fight
For what's right for what's right for what's right

No one talks to her, she feels so alone
She's in too much pain to survive on her own
The hurt she can't handle overflows to a knife
She writes on her arm, wants to give up her life
Each day she goes on is a day that she's brave,
Fighting the lie that giving up is the way,
Each moment of courage her own life she saves
When she throws the pills out a hero is made

No one talks to him about how he lives
He thinks that the choices he makes are just his
Doesn't know he's a leader with the way he behaves
And others will follow the choices he's made
He lives on the edge, he's old enough to decide
His brother who wants to be him is just nine
He can do what he wants because it's his right
The choices he makes change a nine year old's life

Little Mikey D. was the one in class who everyday got brutally harassed
This went on for years until he decided that never again would he shed another tear
So he walked through the door, grabbed the four-four out of his father's dresser drawer
And said I can't take life no more
And like that life can be lost
But this ain't even about that
All of us just sat back and watched it happen
Thinkin' it's not my responsibility to solve a problem, that isn't about me
This is our problem
This is just one of the daily scenarios which we choose to close our eyes
Instead of doing the right thing
If we make a choice and be the voice for those who won't speak up for themselves
How many lives would be saved, changed, rearranged
Now it's our time to pick a side
So don't keep walkin' by
Not wantin' to intervene
Cause you wanna exist and never be seen
So let's wake up and change the world
Our time is now
