Wow that was a lot of love....Enjoy!
I have my window open and I heard some thunder but I wasn’t sure if it was fireworks or not and now it’s raining and I like it.
I’m gonna lump Thursday in here just so I can mention again that I PASSED MY SKATING TESTS!!! So now the only thing I haven’t passed Junior Silver in is freeskate, which I’m only passed junior bronze (hoping I’ll have a chance to skate this summer and get that axel and maybe pass the next freeskate level?) Then Friday and Saturday and Sunday I got caught up with all my TV shows except Game of Thrones, which I’m still pretty far behind in. Saturday I got my prom and athletic banquet dress. Today I accepted a university. I also finished reading Divergent (I may make a post about that later…or I may not….) and got a little math homework done along with MY IDEA FOR MY OP-ED PIECE THANK THE LORD.
But at the same time, I haven’t actually written my op-ed piece, I have a final task in Religion due Wednesday, and ISP I have yet to start due next week, a book report I haven’t started due next week, and more math to catch up on in time for the test Thursday.
I’m gonna justify all this by saying I needed a lazy break in between the business of AP exams and the craziness of school coming up. Oh I can’t wait for it all to be over.
This so much. I was talking about this with my sister yesterday. Being a strong women is WAY too often equated with being more mannish and that just doesn’t help the cause whatsoever.
Hey thanks guys!!! That actually makes me feel more comfortable writing about it knowing that what I’m thinking is actually coherent and relevant!! Now hopefully I’ll have it sound okay….
I think I’m gonna write about how it’s okay to be feminine and still be a feminist person and embrace the values of feminism. There are sort of certain expectations as to ways of dealing with feminism, when really it’s perfectly fine to want to be a little more feminine and still vouch for women’s rights because feminism is really about equality and not changing who you are.
Trying to think of ideas for this editorial is telling me that I really don’t have many opinions on current popular things.
First off I hate politics so that eliminates a whole ton of possible options. A lot of things in the news I just really don’t care much about or I think that people are making a bigger deal of things just cause I don’t care all that much about the hype.
Like, the only currently relevant idea I’ve thought I could write about is Angelina Jolie, but even then I don’t know how I would be able to write about that sort of topic for an entire article. And it would end up being like, shut up people who are being stupid, and shut up people who go overboard defending and praising her. Like, she’s completely brave and good for her with going through everything, but it’s not like she’s the only one to have to turn to surgery to prevent something, so she shouldn’t be overly glorified just cause she’s a celebrity when there are people out there doing the same thing. Ya I know it’s cause she’s a celebrity that she actually gets the attention, but I just don’t think she should be treated any different. (EDIT: I don’t mean to sound ignorant, I had heard very little information on this topic until just 5 minutes ago when I actually went out myself and read her editorial. To clarify, it is reactions to what she did that I don’t have really any opinion on and don’t entirely agree with.)
Other things I’ve thought I could write about include book to movie adaptations (why they are good, why they are bad etc), actresses who don’t answer certain interview questions (like questions about their weight and stuff), prom expectations and traditions (like why all the hype, why promposals and dates), and feminism in Disney (I’m kinda tempted to write about Merida’s redesign and about how it was for her coronation and how really it shouldn’t matter what outfit you put her in, she’s still the same character. Adding sparkles and glitter doesn’t make you any less of a strong woman. It just means you may like sparkles and glitter. Does it change your personality and beliefs? Not really no. While I don’t necessarily like a lot of the glitterified redesigns (cough Pocahontas cough cough) it doesn’t mean that they’re not the same strong women they were without the fancy stuff). But not many people really care about those things.
Ugh why must I take the viewpoints of I don’t care for most things.
Especially vectors. Especially 3D vectors. WHY DO I NEED TO DRAW LINES IN 3D.
This question started asking me how a wrench can explain this property and I’m like….a wrench…..STUPID MATH. WHY WOULD I EVER NEED TO CALCULATE HOW MUCH I TURN A WRENCH.
Guys it’s official.
I’M GOING TO McGILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just accepted my offer for the Faculty of Arts and then my dad gave me this pin that his colleague had cause she always wanted to go to McGill but she didn’t and didn’t know anyone who had.
BUT NOW I’VE ACTUALLY MADE A DECISION AND ACCEPTED AND I’M GOING TO UNIVERSITY AT McGILL THIS MAKES ME HAPPY
What are some ideas I could use to write about for my op-ed piece in writer’s craft that are relatively relevant in today’s news?
