School is really important: Reading, writing, arithmetic. But what they tend to do is teach you reading, writing, arithmetic…then teach you reading, writing, arithmetic again. Then again, then again, just making it harder and harder just to keep you busy. And that’s where I think they messed up. There should be a class on drugs. There should be a class on sex education. No, REAL sex education class, not just pictures and illogical terms…There should be a class on scams, there should be a class on religious cults, there should be a class on police brutality, there should be a class on apartheid, there should be a class on racism in America, there should be a class on why people are hungry, but there not, their class is on…gym….Their class is like Algebra. we have yet to go a store and said, “Can I have X Y + 2 and give me my Y change back, thank you.” You know?…Like foreign languages. I think that they are important, but I don’t think it should be required. Actually, they should be teaching you English, and then teach you how to understand double talk, politician’s double talk. Not teaching you how to understand French and Spanish and GERMAN. When am I going to Germany? I can’t afford to pay my rent in America! How am I going to Germany?

8 Year old girl from Dublin tries to get her school demolished… Just listen.
I am so tired tonight. I feel sore, bloated and completely exhausted. PMS is really attacking me this month, it seems- I’ve been feeling terrible for two weeks already, and nada. But whatever. I’ve got to finish this “Who Am I?” essay for tomorrow morning. At least I have some warm, Earl Grey tea to soothe the pain and good music to keep me a bit more up. I can’t wait to take a shower and knock out. Since I get out of school early tomorrow, I should definitely try to practice violin for at least an hour and get on AIM and take to my lovely friends- no one was online today, but tomorrow I’ll give it another go. Besides, I got to chat with someone else, instead, and she’s a sweetheart. ‘Till tomorrow, then, I suppose.
