|i_heart_parfait||07:56 pm - *sigh* welcome to emma willard|
i would like to share with you all a quote from the book 'Wicked' by Gregory Maguire, which i read over spring break. it is a really amazing book that i highly recommend to anyone, and i will never look at 'The Wizard of Oz' in the same way again. this quote blew me away with how completely true it is. after going to an all-girls' school for a few years i'm sure each of you have come to this conclusion a least a few times, and the way that Maguire puts it is just perfect...
"Girls need cold anger. They need the cold shimmer, the ceaseless grudge, the talent to avoid forgiveness, the sidestepping of compromise. They need to know when they say something that they will never back down, ever, ever... Cross a man and you struggle, one of you wins, you adjust and go on-- or you lie there dead. Cross a woman and the universe is changed, once again, for cold anger requires an eternal vigilance in all matters of slight and offense."

I'LL TAKE POINTLESS ASSEMBLIES FOR 800, ALEX!!
wow, that was a whole lot of hype for a whole lot of nothing. as a senior, i dont really care what happens to the tunnels next year. also, no matter how each person feels about loosing the tunnels (however ambivalent or passionately enraged or ecstatic) they are doing it anyways. "we're closing the tunnels... discuss!" i dont know about anyone else, but my adviser group did enjoy the long lunch meeting to catch up on spring break happenings, talk about colleges, and discuss graduation dresses (since we were without our 10 minute meetings this morning). lol. anyone's groups come up with any fascinating comments/ suggestions on this "controversial" issue at hand!?!

|i_heart_parfait||06:36 pm - this is in my lj, but i thought i'd add a little something to this community!|
Things for Emma girls to do in the DSC when Spring Break is almost here (2 days!!!) and you are VERY bored:
1. Have a snowball fight
2. Write rules for the new couch (no shoes on couch, no food on couch, etc)
3. Re-write couch rules a few days later (ie, no sex on the couch)
4. Play "concentration" a million times
5. Criticize, whine about, analyze, and complain about each new bell that rings throughout the day
6. Make a list of "Boys to Stay Away From" (employing every senior who walks by to name all of her jerky ex-bfs)
7. Hang (*cough* frame?) said list for all to see as a PSA of sorts
8. Study and/or do some homework
.... JK on that last on, hahahaha.

Can we make a pact?
As Seniors (and I'm sorry for not including the younger girls in this community, but I think you will understand why after I explain myself) can we promise to just not care anymore?
I was talking with Tess about this last night. Who cares about boys/girls at this point? We'll be in college in six months. Let's focus on our friendships here. Who cares about grades in the second semester of Senior Year? Our college applications are in and at this point, hate to break it to you, there's nothing more you can do to get into Dream College/University. Let's do our work for the fun of learning, and not stress about it. Who cares about what our classmates think of us? We have spent the last three and a half years trying to impress one another. I'm not sure our opinions of one another can really be made any worse than they are already. At this point, just give up and let's try to like people we haven't in the past. We'll never get this experience with these eighty one girls back. Who cares what you look like at all-girls school? I'll say it right now: I like your flabby arms, I like your little bit of pudge, I like your odd brownish-blondish-redding eyebrows that don't quite match your hair color. Love yourself for once, shave when you really want to and dye your hair when you want a change. Stop obsessing. Stop the madness. It's not a fad.
So here's the pact-- Don't care.
Are you in or out?
