School’s Out For the Lucky People

School’s Almost over and I’m ready to sleep my touché off.

Every day’s a major struggle to stay awake and in a few more weeks I can just laze about.

I do feel sorry for people who are taking summer school, but what can I do about it.

Then again I might have to.. take summer school…I just remembered that.

If I can’t pass my finals I’m toast no sleep whatsoever.

So in theory I’m going to have to bump up the studying and hard work.

God knows how hard I tried to stay away from this but yeah, my butt’s basically been bitten and kicked.

The question is will I ever get to sleep for more than three to seven hours without interruption!?

Report Finds Apparent Racial And Ethnic Segregation In Nassau County Schools

Why Are we Still Using Racial Profiling and Segregation? I mean come on it’s 2014 give it up already.

CBS New York

NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — A recent report has found segregation in Nassau County’s public schools.

The 55 page, 5 year study examined Nassau County’s public schools and found a persistent pattern of racial and ethical segregation, Newsday reported.

The study’s author called for new policies to support diverse communities, according the report.

The report said that there are fewer predominately white school districts and that minority students are mainly concentrated in high poverty districts. The study went on to that the rather dramatic racial and ethnic distinctions across the school districts have implications for who moves where in Nassau County and how much they pay for their home.

The report was released during a symposium at the Teachers College at Columbia University.

The Other Half Of Me

I weave a story into the air,

About two sister’s whose love they share,

They played and laughed,

They were always together,

The sister’s promised this forever and ever,

Until one day a dragon in human flesh,

Stole one sister’s heart and together they meshed,

Only at the station she watched them go,

She watched her sister’s hand wave to and fro,

Alas the sister was alone and heartbroken,

While her sister went out and formed love that rocked like an ocean,

Then one day the lone sister heard “Hey”,

She turned it was her other half that had strayed,

They hugged and they cried the returned said she would never leave again,

And Both lived happily ever after until world’s end. -Ebony F.

 

 

Change

Don’t you hate it when your friend changes your screen name but then you sort of like it after staring at it a bit.

My BFF changed my name to Dragonart101.

It’s kind of cool but I was like “My sista (I pronounced the a really good) what is this Bolshevik you have written on my page”.

She was all like “I thought you might like it cause it’s a cool name”.

Honestly I do like it but can a girl get a headsup when stuff is changing?

Then I thought some more about it and I was like,

“Wait how’d you get my password, oh you sneaky dog in fake baby phat heels”.

Eighteen of the other pit bulls are just puppies that authorities said were living in the basement, jammed into crates. Three maimed adult pit bulls were also rescued from the home.

Paterson Animal Control Officer John Decando told the Bergen Record it was one of the largest dog fighting rings he’s seen.

Police believe the dogs were being trained to fight. One room allegedly had blood-stained walls.
