      Help Save My School

      4 months ago

      I'll say this right off the bat: I'm not going to explain 8 years of local politics and economically focused arguments in this journal. This is very simple and will require a level of trust in me that it's the right thing to do.

      Long story short - My school is currently facing shutdown. We are a small establishment of about 300 students total, and essentially get a private school education for our tax dollars. We are a shared school between two very small towns, separated by a valley ridge. Citizens from Greenwood Lake, New York attend high school in our neighboring town of Tuxedo, New York, at George F Baker High School. We are the top ranking high school in our county, and we are in the top 100 high schools in the COUNTRY. We have recently implemented a STEM Academy curriculum to accompany our core classes. Through a very twisted, corrupt series of events involving six superintendents from other schools in the county, Tuxedo was put into a situation where they needed a solution to serious financial and enrollment problems, which was also a progressive step in the new era of the school. They have applied to the NY State Board of Regents for a Charter School application. If it passes, we're golden. If it does not, it is a short-notice death sentence for the school, and a place that has thrived since the 1930's will close its doors.

      Today, the first half of the meeting was held to discuss the application. It was nearly unanimously spoken against, but the actual voting does not take place until tomorrow. The school flooded with tears when our principal made the announcement that it's not looking good

      But of course, since this has been an issue for 8 years, we were ready to turn around and fight, and plan our resolution with the help of staff, alumni, council, and outsider input.

      People genuinely love our school, and have spoken out. Students and teachers alike have rallied on social media, especially facebook and twitter, to voice their support for the passing. We have gotten the notice of the Board as well as News12HV, our local reporting station. We are rallying under one flag on twitter: #SaveTuxedo

      Rarely will I intertwine my normal life with my internet life, but this is an odd circumstance in which I require friends to support an ideal and an establishment that I appreciate. What I'm asking here is that you take to twitter, and you simply tag the following accounts, and use the hashtag. You don't have to say anything concerning the situation, but you may if you'd like. Please remain serious and respectful, though.
      @NYSEDNews
      @NYSchoolSupts
      @nyschoolboards
      #SaveTuxedo

      DEADLINE: 3/17 10:00am EST

      If you'd like to see and hear more of what's coming from the students, feel free to check my twitter.

      Thank you for your help.

      On "Bullying"

      9 months ago

      I'll say this now: you won't like this journal. These are my very simple, very strong feelings on this.
      I wholly understand what I sound like, and that a LOT of people will NOT agree with me. But, I'll say this anyways. In response to the current "bullying" thing that's apparently going on:

      If you're being an asshole: cut the shit. Nobody needs you prancing around like a pompous little kid on the playground. You're just pathetic for putting somebody in the dirt to make yourself feel better. Don't keep your unnecessary little cycle of hatred going. Be a bigger person than that. Nobody cares if you've had it rough. Chances are, their personal problems are equivalent to yours, and now you're just adding to them. Although, it's understood that you may behave this way unknowingly. If there's a stressful situation around you, take a moment to listen to yourself. Do you SOUND like a douchebag? If so, just apologize and grow up.

      If you're "being bullied": Get over it. That sounds REALLY harsh, I know, but it's actually a solution. If you pay no mind to the worthless words of others trying to raise themselves up by putting you down, their point is moot. Their ammunition is only effective if you react to it in the way they desire. Disarming somebody who won't leave you be is as easy as laughing in their face. If you roll with it, accept it, and enjoy the sheer ridiculousness of it, you can't be effected by it. Don't get butthurt. There's always going to be a group of assholes you have to deal with, no matter how old you are, where you go, and how you're behaving. You must also take into account their sense of humor. People may just be messing with you, and you may be blowing it out of proportion.

      However, I wholly recognize this applies only to verbal "bullying." The physical aspect can be much more serious. There are plenty of people who have been victimized by being physically assaulted, to varying degrees of severity, in many forms. This is something that should be immediately addressed or directly dealt with if it occurs, lest it become more serious.
      Although, this is a different topic - this is the internet. Unless you've learned considerably more than I have from Looney Toons and have the ability to punch or grope one another through your computer monitors, this does not apply, although it should be discussed to some extent within the overall topic.
      There's also a block function on most social media sites, and a messaging system so you can say "This person is a freak." to your friends.
      TL;DR This shouldn't be anywhere near as much of an issue as it is. If you're going to voice an opinion in response, please ACTUALLY read what I wrote here before telling me how I'm wrong.

      Photoshopping the Idiots

      10 months ago

      In my physics class the other day, I made the mistake of casually glancing to my right. Turns out, my suspicions were confirmed - my friends Justin and Brandon are COMPLETE idiots.

      ByfHs5_CcAArke1.jpg:large


      Well, as compromising as that image could possibly get, I decided to crop their dumb asses and the result was phenomenally photoshoppable.

      Now, I of course took to twitter, and the first results at the hands of @TDBTyler were fairly entertaining.

      And so, I take to my talented watchers on the site. The power is all yours, Internet. Shine a light on them or cast them into a dark place. Show me your editing prowess.

      Best edit wins...nothing, but it'll make a group of people laugh, and that's pretty cool, amirite? Go for it.
