Didn't I do it right the first time?
Do I have to do this all over again?
Didn't I do it right...didn't I...oh, didn't I?
I got to be my Physics teacher's number one lame-o today. He used me as the poster child for stupidity, laziness, peer pressure, and flunk-out. I don't mind it much, really. Mr. Soss debates things in a very one-sided yet entertaining way. I want to talk to him about his views on non-voting. He states that by refusing to vote, he sends a message to the Republicans and Democrats. I want to ask him why, if he doesn't wish to give his vote to those two major parties, he doesn't just vote for the Green Party?
But I got through the day OK. In Leadership, I had to sit next to Jeff for the first half of the period, and it is very weird listening to his monotone voice. Normally, he doesn't talk at all, but as the ASB President he's required to run meetings, which means chatter. It's just strange to hear him when I'm used to his [mostly] silence in every other class.
Heidi gave me a package of Mia's stuff that she hasn't been able to look at it for lack of time. No problem. Heidi has seen Mia in person and talked to her. Makes a difference, don't you think? (Quick recap: Mia ran away last month and now spends her time hopping around the West Coast. I'd say where, but I don't know.) I've now got all these pieces of Mia's life - old school papers, a journal, a piece of flashy bright-colored cloth, drawings, poetry, lyrics, more writing, more school assignments - but I don't know how to tie them together. I can't know that until I know what I was intended to do with them. (Chronology would've been helpful, too, but I don't date my work all the time, either.) Heidi says it's to help understand Mia's situation, but my first perusal has not quite done so. All it's done is make me want to haul out old diaries from the same time period and do a side-by-side comparison, but I somehow doubt that was Mia's intention. Meep. I guess I'll just have to wait until she contacts me or something. I'll be seeing her at Fanime, if nothing else...maybe. How's she going to get the confirmation postcard when she ain't home? The puzzle continues to tangle...
Know what I got today? A Hank Williams CD. How wicked is that?
Oh why don't you love me like you used to do?
How come you treat me like a worn out shoe?
My hair's still curly and my eyes are still blue
Why don't you love me like you used to do?
