Ok.  I am officially pissed.  I swear, there are some people who can make me go from relaxed and unworried to mad as a disturbed wasps' nest so fast.

**deep breath**

So, one thing I've gotten used to over the years is the usual fuss and furor over school reassignments each spring/summer for the local school district.  Parents squabble and complain for a little while but they get over it.  This year, things are different.  The idiot who ended up in charge of the school board is getting rid of the diversity policy so the school system can go back to "neighborhood" schools.  Now, one of the great things about living where I live is the schools.  NC gets a lot of transplanted yankees, many of whom are moving to raise their kids in a good school system.  Huh.  How about that?  Now, see, the county school system where I live has been a Nationally Recognized  school system ever since they started the diversity policy that's been in place for so long.  And the new head of the school board has decided that the best thing to do is dismantle it.  We get so many yankees moving down here because our schools are better!  Not just some of the schools in the good neighborhoods, but all of them.  And so this year, the debate over this decision hasn't died down, and parents and students aren't getting over it!  What does that tell you?  With the school reassignments, parents and students don't like them but they realize that it is a necessary mechanism to ensure that all students are given the same opportunities.  And another thing.  In the past when there's been a political issue locally, there are 3 high schools whose members are seen working side by side despite our own rivalry.  Same three schools every time, one of which I graduated from.  And the schools are three of the most diverse in our system, as well as magnet schools of various types.  And you want to dismantle the magnet program as well?  Magnet students have a wider world view because of the magnet program, rather than being totally from one class or race or area of the county, they come from all classes, all races, and all areas of the county.  And what really gets to me is what the head of the school board said about these young adults being active in the case!  He claimed that these teens, people who have drivers licenses, are being brainwashed/used by people as weapons.  At that age, if we want to do something politically, it is OUR decision.  Not our parents.  Not our teachers.  Not anyone but ourselves.  We are freethinking people, and perfectly capable of making our own decisions.  So basically, the guy's an ass.  And his days on the school board are numbered at this point.

So, now that I've bored you with my probably not so clear political-ish rambling I'll get to the bit of stupidity.  So I've been taking care of a neighbor's puppy while they were gone, which means taking her out every 2 hours or so.  Which means I had to get up at 6 to take her out.  So the other night, rather than going to bed around midnight, waking up around 5:50, going back to bed until 7-ish, and then being up for the day, I went to sleep at 4:50, and woke up at 7.... Heh.  Bad me.

Also, a couple weeks ago I was at the beach, and I saw some guy who I swear looked like Sam (from Burn Notice) except with longish hair.  And I mean, really looked like Sam.  It was pretty awesome/freaky.

So, my day consisted of me and my roomie talking about Leverage and specifically Eliot before actually falling asleep, waking up late, missing my one thursday class on a day where the prof actually took attendance(FUCK!!), eating the second half-a-can of ravioli, going to counseling, fiddling on the computer for a while, watching a Burn Notice marathon, then going shopping at Wal-Mart.  And y'know what I bought?  Well, no, because I haven't told you yet.  Anyways.  6-pack IBC Root Beer, a box of Pop-Tarts(DO NOT JUDGE ME!!), a pack of twizzlers, and deoderant.  Finished shopping just in time to catch the bus back to campus(EPIC TIMING), flopped onto my bed, opened the twizzlers, and turned Burn Notice back on.  Proceded to eat most of a pound of twizzlers essentially for dinner(I feel gross now), then headed to fencing club with another girl on my floor.  At fencing we had elections, and I might be the assistant armorer for next year.  \O/  Fenced a little, then realized my ride left without telling me.  Also found out that, aparently, the prof for my class today was even sketchier than normal, and the class managed to derail her from the notes three times, she had to get something from her office four times, and she was giving notes that we had already taken.  Very strange.  Got a ride back to my dorm with one of the other fencers, watched the last half of the Burn Notice season finale(which made no sense), and set about devouring everything perishable in the dorm room while my roomie packed and handed me food so the room wouldn't stink after Spring Break.

Missed most of CSI: NY today, and then I realized that Leverage had been on at the same time, so my roomie and I missed Leverage, and I missed most of NY.  Now I have to wait until both come out online to see them.  Which means, at the least, 24 hours.  For both.  Damnit!

At least I can console myself with watching an episode of Burn Notice.  Specifically, the episode "Friendly Fire" which has plenty of explosions, and epic timing.  Love it. <3

Hey [livejournal.com profile] jetpack_angel ,

I hate you.  And at the same time, I absolutely love you.

Let me count the ways:
1) Dark Blue
2) Burn Notice
3) Leverage

You kill me with all these shows.  I can't resist!  Because they all have amazing sexyness, and plenty of action.  And quite a lot of explosions. :D

So yes, I hate you.  But at the same time, you have made me a very happy fangirl.


Edit: Also, Eliot Spencer is the shit.  I want him to cook for me.  And punch a few assholes around campus for me. XD

Classes started today.  Aparently I've got the wrong textbook for one class, so I've got to go make that switch later today, I can't remember where I put my meds, so I'm having some trouble focusing, which isn't too bad today, as it's mostly "here's the syllabus, write/tell me something about yourself" kinda stuff.  Will have to search for it later.

Also, I've started watching the "It's the Rage" trailer again, because the dance still makes me giggle madly.

Edit: And on an entirely separate note, I blame [livejournal.com profile] jetpack_angel for turning me into a Michael/Victor fangirl.  Goddamnit woman!  You must stop introducing me to new fandoms!  You're driving me up the nearest fucking wall!

Edit 2: Aparently, my meds make my stomach unhappy if I haven't taken them for a while.  So I'm lying on my stomach on my bed, watching Dirty Jobs.  And not wanting a damn thing for dinner.
