I've decided that this year is going to be a year of change. I'm not just going to sit back and take things as they come. I'm going to actively make things happen. Last year I decided to focus on a few key things (take guitar lessons, surf more, etc.) and I am pretty impressed with how much I've accomplished. This year is going to be even better.

Usually I join one or two extra-curriculars just so it looks like I'm participating a bit. I'll do costumes for the school play or something. Sure, that's cool and everything but there's more to life than school plays and finishing my [/KWLINK 5449]history project[/KWLINK]. I really think I need to do stuff that means something to me. Does that make sense? I don't just want to help out with things because I have to; I want to do it because I want to.

First thing on my list? Organizing a proper recycling program at school. Sure, we have bins to put paper, but that's really it. I think we should start a program where we collect all our cans and bottles and once a month, cash them in for something cool for the school. Like new soccer jerseys or free snow cones (What? If Katie can do it, why can't I?).

I also want to start up a composting program. All around school we can have enclosed compost bins for fruit and vegetable waste. Think of how many banana peels and apple cores get thrown away every day at school! With the compost, we can start a school garden and maybe even donate some of the food we grow to local charities. I know it's not impossible to do, I just need to get off my butt and convince everyone else it's a good idea.

What do you think of my new-found energy and determination? Are any of you looking forward to doing something meaningful this year? I'd love to !

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Do You Recycle?

    • Yeah, everything from bottles to newspapers.
    • Usually, cuz it's good for the environment.
    • Rarely - it's easier to throw it all out in the trash.
    • No, but I'm going to start.

    Ive noticed everyone is trying to be "country" or "redneck" all of sudden. I just dont get it i mean im dating a redneck but the difference is hes a real redneck, hes lived in the country and knows how to ride a horse and fish. But alot of people nowadays are trying to say their country or redneck because they listen to bands like "Florida Georgia line" and i just dont understand it, its not a fashion statement its a lifestyle. What are your opinions on it?

    My parents are about an 8. I put a lot of care and effort into my schoolwork, so they'd only take away my privileges (phone, internet, DS) if I wasn't trying. But, I give it my all, and behave in general, so they're pretty easy. However, I knew this girl in home and careers class last year who got her phone taken away because her grade point average was 3.4 instead of 3.66.

    Try to see if you can meet them in person again and ask William if he had fun in New York. I'm sure he doesn't hate you, he probably ust didn't have the thie to reply.
