chimoltrufia: midwestmountainmama: ziatroyano: FOLEY, Alabama — Many of the 223 Hispanic students at Foley Elementary came to school Thursday crying and afraid, said Principal Bill Lawrence. Nineteen of them withdrew, and another 39 were absent, Lawrence said, the day after a federal judge upheld much of Alabama’s strict new immigration law, which authorizes law enforcement to detain...

weexist-weresist: I think people who have abortions relating to gender/disability are not wrong. I don’t think its reasonable to argue that it’s akin to a holocaust/genocide/etc because there is a difference between the act of abortion and whatever ridiculous logic that might inform that act. So a woman aborting…
Whoa! My Hair
The front part of my hair naturally curls upward when it starts getting long enough to reach my eyebrows. I thought this only happened in the front, but apparently the hair at the back of my head does also! Wee curlyness

And not in a bad way! I just find it odd to have so much… attention I guess? I’m not entirely used to it yet! I go down the hallway and people are telling me good job on winning the Hispanic Merit thing and I have to say thanks for it. And other times people know about essays I’ve written and the grades I get on some things without me ever having told them. Some know my SAT score...
SAT on Saturday!
And this time, I won’t forget to bring my calculator. Not my smartesttttt idea last time.

College Essays Abound; an offer.
If anybody has an essay that they are not confident about, you may send them to me and I will be free to look over them and provide critiques or specific help or what-have-you is needed to make you more sure of it. I am an extremely good writer and editor. Certainly not the best, but I think the help would be useful to many people.
mixedbyziggy: Reggie Clemons could be the next Troy Davis. From http://www.justiceforreggie.com: In 1991, two young women went missing after visiting the abandoned Chain of Rocks Bridge in St. Louis Missouri — a popular hang-out with local teens — with their cousin. The cousin told the police an impossible tale: that the girls had been pushed from the bridge, but he was ordered to jump by...
I Wonder How My Friend Is Doing
I’m not supposed to say anything to her first, but I am curious about how life has been for her. What an odd situation. Even odder that I even care at all what has been up with her lately. But I guess it really hasn’t been super long since she texted last. I will just wait and hope she has not entirely forgotten.
Oh Hey It's a Thing I Wrote for English
On a Real Tinman I have concrete views on political topics based on the most logical premises that can be ascertained from an understanding of a mostly-objective moral framework that I live my life by. Animals should have rights, abortions should be legal, gay marriage should be allowed, global warming exists. However, I do not have any actual vested interest in what happens to any of the people...
I don't remember my own sister's name.
And neither does my brother. We suck hahaha
I have stopped caring about what happens to...
I’m supposed to be altruistic and care for everyone even though I don’t really have an emotional investment in what ultimately happens to them. But It is hard. It becomes tiring. And after the whole hellish week of my autism acting up, I think I became even more tired toward other people. and so I don’t care anymore if I directly tell them that they are of no value to me, will...
When I walk in the hallways, I’m always on alert every time I see a person or if I I turn a corner myself, and then I get relieved after I see it’s no big deal. I hope I get used to this nervousness. It is quite annoying. In related news, I finally got all 64 messages out for the book. I’ll have to send it out to Tones and Kolk as well. Should start in about a week or two,...

A friend saw me while the autism was acting up
What a fun way for them to learn about just how terribly painful the whole ordeal is. I guess that is what happens when one of the only places I have to run to is Ms. Tones office. Still, at least their interest in the whole autism thing has finally been piqued. I’m glad that now they finally have this understanding of just what it means. They are asking questions about what it’s...
With understanding comes content.
I do understand. I do understand now why things happened the way they did. Things make sense now. I can sleep easy again.
Why do these autistic things always hit my legs...
It is extremely annoying.
And so I had a talk with my Mom
She says the whole stress thing is actually quite ordinary. People often do not realize when they are becoming stressed about situations, even when they’re as “petty” as the ones I’m dealing with, and she says people who feel an academic overload are just easily susceptible to stress (so she agrees with me on pretty much all of this.) She has thus sympathized with why I...
I suppose this is why I do not like annoying...
It stresses me. I think on some level, this is really what stress is like. As confident as I appear, as certain as I am that I am right about all the assumptions I make about these situations and know that I have created foolproof preventative methods… They still cause me to have dreams. They give me insomnia. They make it hard to eat. I have trouble working on stuff because there is this...
Been having trouble eating a lot lately too. Hmph. I must fix all these nasty habits before something serious happens.
I don't think I'll be updating with regular...
I just cannot be bothered to grab all the 100 or so posts and add them into the queue. Maybe next weekend, but I really don’t want to right now.
Bah. Not this again.
Having trouble sleeping because of too many thoughts. I have not slept long and it’s still hard to fall back asleep.
This is easily
The most immature Absolutely annoying Spiteful and cowardly Act of ignoring I have EVER seen somebody do. It looks I’ll need to pull out my annoying confrontation methods. I was hoping to avoid bringing things to this and expected so much better.
