Lets try something differnt today about graduation...

I remember graduation,
and my foolish thoughts that day...
How I wished that I could skip it,
and get on about my way!

Plans for celebrating elsewhere
were my only real concern.
Thinking "education's over"...
spare me platform and lectern!

Piano music piped us in
with sounds of "Pomp and Circumstance,"
Alma Mater, Go Forth speeches,
boring all into a trance (except for you Vittal!)

Then we marched across the stage
and shook a hand and grabbed a "case,"
Was this simulated sheepskin
worth the trouble of the droll?

Smugly walking back towards
our seats, we passed our kith and kin.
It was then I saw a sight
that stirred my young adrenaline.

Here and there I spotted teachers
that I'd had along the way;
they had come, not from requirement,
but to honor us that day.

Mom and Dad were hand-in-hand,
and watched me as I passed them by...
Mother's eyes were full of tears,
and Dad held his proud head high.

Uncle Nick sat right beside him,
next was dearest Aunt Lina,
then I realized my folly
as I stole a glance at them...

Graduation exercises
aren't for us, the senior class.
Look around...the ones who love us
now enfold us, as we pass.

How could we have been so selfish
not to realize this day
called Commencement Exercises
marks the end of naïveté.

This day isn't for the students...
it's for those that carried us
to this point of our berated...
"Academic Exodus."

As the recessional began,
I had them once again in view.
Silently, with glistening cheeks,
I mouthed the heartfelt words "Thank you..."

Eep. I posted this today, and saw the request for Prom stuffs, so here goes. Xposted from my personal journal.

I am so insanely late to write about Prom, but sue me.

I worked like an assmonkey to finish my mask and other self deco things all Saturday Morning. By the time Josh arrived, though, Mom had yet to arrive back home with Carey (so josh would only make one stop) and I'd needed her help to zip me into my corseetty boned giant fluffy dress and to glue the peacock feathers into my hair with cheap extension glue. Eep. Five minutes later, somehow, I was ready, and we left.

Josh=crazy driver.

His place for pictures. His mom is adorable, and ordered us prints of the pictures she took of Carey and I. I think we looked dashing, all in black and red with our laquered masks.

We were the first at the restaurant at 5:30, when Mai made the reservation, which sucked because the last of our party (NATALIE) didn't arrive until seven. But what can you do. We ate, left, arrived. Parking was a bitch. Prom was in one word, amazing. I felt pretty uninhibited, odd for me considering, and I actually danced, with the only alcohol I'd consumed all day being gross old wine on an empty stomach hours and hours before, so I doubt it helped (it normally takes ten times that amount plus some other incentives to get me on a dance floor). It was amazing, and Carey was wonderful. I could go on and on, and I think I just may some other time.

We leave, Josh abandons us and then gets pissed off that I left my cigars in his car by mistake. I was pissed because I wanted my effing peach cigars. We go to Natalies with Jerry, which was cool enough but my head fuzzed up and I started to cough like a mad tubercolosis cow, so C and I left. Damned cold. The cigar would have helped the cough, surprisingly enough, so POO on having left it in the car. Momentarily lost Bling Bling Bob, my -gold- version of my beloved skeleton necklace(pictured below), and it was over.

Since then the weeks been a downward spiral cumulating into..graduation, and the end of everything that I know. Yes, I like school. I love it. The whole idea has left me just more than a little stupified. Press on, I guess? I have a feeling that Health Careers High School is going to stay in my radius, though, for some reason. Could I end up a teacher? Or something else? Who knows. Ms. McCormick made me nearly cry by reading our class "Oh, the Places You'll Go" kindergarten-style for our final Writer's Notebook excercise. I've become a sentimental ninny, I'm afraid. I hate to admit these things.

Both of us, in the masks I made for the two of us. I think they turned out most pleasingly. every

Anime Club's era is over!
Anime Club is over forever. I almost feel like a little piece of me has died, as cliche as that sounds. An era is over, and its never going to be quite the same. I mean - Sharon Chan and Jill King created this club two years before we came, but it never fluorished the way it did until we took root two years ago in our Junior year. i'm going to miss it.

However, towards the end I was informed that the bimboes at UTSA who run (ran) their Anime Club flunked out, so...Mai? Natalie? Up for four more years?

We had our elections, and it was close. So we went out with news!

Mai: Alright! We have early decisions!

Me: After skimming the votes, we know its going to be close..

Sarah: So we decided to throw out all of your votes and decide on our favorites ourselves!! >:P

-angry uproar, i yell to shut them up because thats my thing-

Sarah: So, the first winner is Roslyn. Roslyn, please come up here and read the next name off of the list.

Roslyn: (read) All?

-awkward silence-

Me: All of you were so great that we want all four of you to be Anime Club's new officers.

Then there were claps and screams and I doubt I'll forget it for the rest of my life - it ranks up there with our standing ovation at the Japanese Festival on March 4th. I'm really going to miss it. If they're any past or present Anime Club members out there, I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making it such an awesome experience and a force in numbers that's outgrown almost any classroom in the whole school and any other non-academic club (but then again, who can compete with Latin Club or HOSA?). Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Alright listen up, HOSA fair is this coming Friday the 6th. If you currently go the HCHS and don't know what HOSA Fair is then something's wrong with you.
HOSA Fair is kind of like a mini carnival being held at the school. It'll cost you 4 dollars but not one red cent of this goes to HOSA, honest. Every penny goes to a freshman's sister that has a brain tumor. This in itself should be enough initiative to buy a ticket. Can't go? Donate the cash anyway! It's only 4 bucks, it's not gonna break you. And if by any chance you think you can't afford it then ask your parents. I think they'd give you a few bucks for a good cause.
I'd like to think that this should be the REAL reason you buy a ticket or donate but if it's not enough, here's some more:
You get out of your fourth period class half an hour early, when you buy a ticket you will also receive a raffle ticket for a drawing (there will be some great prizes), there's going to be some free food and plenty of things for you to do.
Push this on your friends as well. It really is for a good cause. I'm sure some of you know a little more about it than I do but I don't really need to know more. Knowing that you can help someone out is a great thing, so do it!
Thank you.
Any questions, check out the table in the foyer at both lunches, they'll be happy to answer any questions you have.

alright, this mainly goes out to the previous grads of HCHS, but if any of you current grads have any views on this, feel free to comment, I know this is an issue that is probably haunting all of our minds right now.

I, for one, can't stop worrying about what things are going to be like in the "real world". If I barely survived HCHS, how can I be sure I will survive out there?

So the question for all you guys is, Is it really as bad as everyone makes it out to be? What was the hardest thing about graduating? What was the hardest reality you had to face? and If you could give any advice to the HCHS grads of '05, what would it be?

Because there's more to life than high school... there's college!
This is a poll for class of 2005...

Where are you planning on attending college?
What is your intended major?
Medical field in your future?
HCHS... good or bad for you?

a proposal
Would it be possible for a newspaper staff member to post the article here, since its made such a big hooplah? I think it'd equal as much of a fuck-you to administration as the very rebellious centerfold even though against that kind of censorship, i thought it was kindof stupid. mad curious though.
