Erin

By: Astrometeor , 2:01 AM GMT on January 19, 2014

As I walk into church
my eyes immediately search
for the wonderful girl known as Erin.

She is the only reason I look
forward to coming to
church anymore.

She is the epitome of a sunny day,
absolute perfect radiance shining
from her amazing persona.

She has such a big heart,
full of caring and kindness,
a joy to be around.

But, I don't want to unnaturally
lift her up to heaven.
I'd much rather her stay
down here with me and everyone.

She has her faults, and her quirks,
but these do not lessen
her value to me.

Rather, they make the angel she is,
all the more human and loving,
and one of the best.

To say something bad against her name,
is to speak blasphemies
against Mother Nature herself.

------

Erin, to me, is a wonderful girl. Someone I can enjoy being around. And that seems to be more and more rare these days. The poem above is dedicated to her. Nothing fancy, no rhyme schemes or syllable counts, just a nice free verse poem. I hope she enjoys the poem tomorrow as well, since I know that she has had some significant struggles in her life.

I know you guys (and gals) don't know her, and I know Max (trHUrrIXC5MMX) likes to daydream about me and her...but I still like you guys enough to post the poem here. Thanks for reading, and please feel free to leave a comment below.

I have (in English) a copy of Caesar's Gallic Wars. He talks in third person for nearly the entire book, but he puts himself up too high (even for the great general he was).


And, my sister won a copy of Oxford's Classical Dictionary, with 4 perfect papers on the National Latin Exam. That book is upstairs in her room. That thing is worth $200.


I took the level 3 national Latin exam... Got my gold medal
I was so happy

The National exams are online did you know, all from 1999 to last year.
That dictionary she has is a treasure then.

Hey Astro...

Someone here had a present for me when I arrived in Norwalk.
It is a great Latin book but a real old one from 1931 which can't be better.

This adds to my collection, others being:

"The World of Rome" by M. Grant, 1960
"The rise of Rome" by A. Everitt, 2012
"Lingua Latina - Roma Aeterna" by H. Orberg, 1990 - all in Latin

and some practice books besides my Cambridge Course (I, II, III and IV books), two dictionaries and a big 500+ page Latin Verbs and some grammar.

I have my little Latin collection now... lol

My comments (6716) divided by your comments (12720) = .5279 Times that by 100 to get percent and you get 52.79%. I'm at 52.97% of your comments, and I want to get to 100% of your comments if not more.

actually you do.

I have 12700+ comments... you got 6716. Right now you have 52.7% to go to get to 0% which is your goal, meaning there is nothing else to over, you have completed the run.

if you think about it its better to make it go down to 0% than to 100%, you want less difference then you may want a lower percentage, if you want the gap to grow then you want a higher percentage.

you are really going down to 0, you are at 52.7% now and I told you you are not going to get past 50% and under

That's how I see it

I'm not sure how much the 1st amendment applies to minor children in a school acting in loco parentis. However the denial of food is a despicable thing to do and is probably illegal by other grounds.

Here is what the Supreme Court had to say about free speech rights, which contradicts what I just said.

Tinker v. Des Moines (393 U.S. 503, 1969)


On February 24, 1969 the Court ruled 7-2 that students do not "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate."


There's a later case that says that schools can restrict students' rights if they can prove that a disruption to learning (which the cafeteria is unrelated to) will take place due to a certain actions done by the students.

Edit: Now I can't find that case, oh well. There are others though.

You have to remember that kids born in the USA are full citizens of America and get full rights bestowed by the Constitution. Adults seem to have trouble with that.

Common tactic in middle school is to tell the students they won't get food until they are quiet. Apparently school officials don't realize that's blatantly illegal on their part (1st Amendment)...but then again, school officials aren't generally known for being smart.

They said no talking to us, then they got mad when we used paper/pencil to communicate. They would illegally confiscate our stuff (no warrant or probable cause-4th Amendment).

Then they would nearly lose their minds when we communicated via hand signs and gestures. Not once did they say no communication, they said no talking. And yet they still withheld our food.

That would be my 7th grade year...

We tried to tell them where they were wrong...but logic did not avail that day nor that year.

Now the principal of my HS (used to be the principal of the MS) wonders why she gets the least amount of respect out of anyone.

Hmm...I wonder.

Tricked Elizabeth into thinking I am taking AP Physics C this year. Lol, I told her today and she was amazed that she fell for that one.

Now I just need to make my special April Fools' Joke look good enough for her to believe it at first. However, I am running a really high risk with this prank, and as such, will include the P.S. Happy April Fools! at the end of the joke with an explanation. You see, the joke will be an entirely written prank, destined for her to read it when she's not around me.

Shall not be sharing the prank with the blog. Everyone would go ape if they saw it...and not in a good way.
