A Cool Quote

I agree yet disagree. For all it's worth, it is clever indeed.

Yeah you're making your history teacher seem sickeningly sweet... To the extent where I don't know if that combination of words was supposed to be even put together. Oh I love challenging authority, especially if I have a ton against them!

Ahh yes I hate incredibly biased teachers just as much as the next person, especially instructors that keep rambling on about some one-sided bullshit (regardless of whether or not the students agree) that might not even be relevant. I had a teacher last year who kind of did that in class on a regular basis, while we were working... At least half the time it made me roll my eyes, another fraction of the time it made me question whether that type of discussion was appropriate in an environment filled with minors, and the remaining portion of the time I actually listened... How I reacted to Witka's disgression varied according to my mood, and whether or not I had gotten my daily caffeine source yet. Gah inhalants, the best way to get high (health class).

I could understand you being the type of person who is fascinated by history... And your hopes getting smashed. Hey, this is a public school! What do you expect> Which is why GWASH could use a paradigm shift.

Don't interview students about their perspectives on Nader, for I'd expect less than 1% of our student population to really be THAT politically aware and articulant enough to come up with a decent response. However interviewing any history teacher might not be so depressing! The same thing goes for them progressive hippies out there... (*coughs, coughs*)

We didn't speak a word to eachother the whole day, probably because I was stressed out about um, stuff. & Oh shit, I meant perseverance! Nevermind, damn how can I be so stupid... Ahh yes I begin to lose my focus at the randomest moments. It's not a good thing.
