Homework.

Khan, buy a laptop around back to school time if you've got your heart set on one. I was lucky in a way that my desktop died in September last year cause I got a great deal on my little laptop and I love it.

I won my re-election campaign to be a senior class officer, defeating a girl from our school who's, what you would say, in the "popular" crowd. I'm not unpopular by any stretch, but she's one of those kind of snobbish kids "at the top." You know what I mean.

Anyway, one of her good friends is our current president. The president is much more reasonable, a nice person by all accounts. She spent the entire year talking about how she wanted all four of us officers to get re-elected so that we could keep going at our same pace. However, as soon as her friend got in the race, her story changed to "I hope you guys tie so that we can have five class officers." I felt more than a little betrayed, as she clearly means she wanted her friend to beat me. I've not expressed this to her, but I have to several people, including the two other class officers, who agreed with me.

So, when I won, I was quite pleased. I felt like I successfully defeated a coup on my position. Then, first meeting after the election, and our adviser and the president throw around the idea of creating a new officer position for the girl I beat to be in. One thing led to another, today I got the e-mail that our principal approved the fifth position and there are now five class officers.

I'm quite pissed off. First of all, I'm not a fan of this girl. I think it complicates things having five officers, and I don't think she's the right person for the job. Too many strong personalities on board inevitably leads to more conflicts. Also, and more importantly, I KNOW that if I had lost, no one would have suggested a new position in the class officer ranks to get me back in. I now feel detached from the class officer position and a bit isolated from our advisers and the president.

So, it's not a big deal, but I'm not really planning on telling anyone I know this, so I figured I'd let the flames run a bit here.
Be magnanimous, Danimal, and watch fire rain down on their heads. Petulance is for children and retarded interference users.

Don't drop the soap ... unless you're into that sort of thing. In that case, ask your parents if you can be under house arrest in California.

That sounds worse.

This semester is shaping up to be the worst gradewise since I came back (we're talking C's ), but I have 3 weeks to straighten up. Hopefully by this time next year I'll only have one more semester to go. :Pray:

Hmm, Jimmy Choos, here I come?

Are you definitely going to leave Michigan behind when you finish?

Maybe I'm going to be a terrible parent but I think they need to have more trust in you. I wouldn't ground a child for poor grades but instead try to be respectful and trust them.

Glad you're feeling this way, man. I rag on you sometimes, but know that I'm always rooting for you and am here to help whenever.

Please describe (in detail) how you would help, LM. Cartoons are acceptable.

They're no match for your oh-so-charitable sarcasm, Swayze.

Eventually I'd like to. Right now my plan has changed from bolting the hell out to perhaps moving to a more urban area around here and out of the suburbs for good, and perhaps when I've got some experience under my belt then I'll leave for greener pastures.

If I have to spend another year in the 'burbs I'll scream.

Vicodin and cheap porn.

Screwy, this man is no friend of yours. Any friend that won't splurge for good porn on days when you are down cannot be trusted.
