    Hi so you know what the government of this country has done? They have banned our school from donating to any charity other than charities supported by the government so our school’s huge charity committee with it’s seven trillion and a half subcommitees is basically ruined! So now literally all our money we raise goes to a government charity and yeah charity is charity but WHY CANT WE HELP THE CHARITIES WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH FOR YEARS?????????????? I DON’T UNDERSTAND!!!!!!!!!

    also i have a new laptop it’s blue and very nice i like it a lot.

      That stinks. :/ Especially since the charities you were working with before are probably quite trustworthy. I’m afraid that now all the ones that aren’t government-subsidized are going to go under. D:

      Hey, my laptop is blue too! Well, not technically, but the case that is always on it is, so close enough. :p

      I’m finally writing this Econ paper but I decided to save the introduction and conclusion for last and I don’t like writing them.

        Ugh I hate writing introductions. Conclusions are okay because you can recycle 90% of your intro for them but ugh.

    HEYA Y’ALL!!
    So, school’s started… and between Calculus, AP Physics 2, Chemistry, and AP World History, I’ve found myself insanely overwhelmed by homework. I don’t even know why I’m typing this; nothing notable has happened to me of late. My internet was fixed, sorta, so there’s that. In Physics, we’re learning about buoyancy and building shoes that allow you to walk on water. Our test day was Friday, and I fell like 20 times in 20 different ways, but hey, it was fun, and now I can truly say that I have walked on water!
    Homecoming is rapidly approaching, and I have no date and no plans and I’m probably going to end up spending it doing homework (being in four AP classes in sophmore year is FUN!)
    That’s pretty much all I have to say. I miss you all and hope you guys are surviving and not, like me, totally overwhelmed.

      Ooh. Fun. Then you have SD over here, who is taking two college English classes (which is super easy, cause y’know, SD) and this Econ class through online high school that has a pretty light workload (although the work that I do have to do is confusing and super boring). And then work experience, which… My boss basically signs forms and then my high school counselor will stop by twice this year. Most of my job recently has been baking bread, but my favorite part is talking to the customers. My school is going well this year, so I’m happy about that. And happy I’m fiiiiinally a senior.

      I finally have my learner’s permit! Been driving a little. Still at the library. There’s this wonderful little girl named Ria who is in my creative writing workshop, and oh my gosh. I love her so much. She’s super articulate and very excited to learn. I was reading from Roald Dahl and asked her to point out evidence of sensory details and she launched into this super sophisticated analysis of the similes and metaphors. I was blown away. This week I’m going to be picking out books for us to read together in a book club/discussion sort of thing. It’s really weird to think I was only a little older than her when I first started Terces.

      I’ll be on campus until like… 7pm today, so I’m kind of dying. I have all these forms to fill out for my high school attendance, which basically shows the work I do daily for my high school classes (read: there’s quite a bit of making stuff up). And the PE log charting my daily exercise. I SHOULD have filled out these forms daily, but… Yeah, that didn’t happen.

      I went to the aquarium on Friday! It was fun. But it’s also been CRAZY hot over here–like 101 in my city yesterday and 108 in the city I visited yesterday.

      I’ve never been to a school dance, although a couple of my friends went to homeschool prom last year and said it was a ton of fun. Never really seemed like my cup of tea, but who knows? Once upon a time we had homeschool homecoming, but I haven’t heard anything about it happening this year. What I DID hear about was this super cool 1920s themed formal dance in a city not too far from here the first week of October. I’m thinking about going because 1. I’ve never been to a dance and 2. because it gives me an excuse to buy an awesome Gatsby-esque dress, but we’ll see.

      Hang in there! I know you have a super heavy workload, but you’re crazy intelligent and I know you’re gonna rock the rest of your high school.

        Thank you, bro. I’m super happy to hear that your life is going well and the stuff that you’re doing at the library sounds super cool! It’s always crazy for me to meet 8 or 9 year olds and realize, hey, I was their age when I joined Terces, which on the one hand seems like a prehistoric event but on the other hand it doesn’t seem like I was (ever) that small.

        I went to homecoming last year, and it was a heterosexual make-out fest, so I don’t think I really wanna go anyway, though it would be nice to feel like somebody could conceivably ask me but that’s really not going to happen. Definitely go to the 1920s dance because the 20s are a fabulous theme and you would totally rock a flapper dress.

        • Agent SD 5:23 pm on September 23, 2015 Permalink | Reply

          Ha, yeah, it’s homeschool homecoming so it would be more like everyone standing off to the side and “making room for Jesus.” I feel kind of weird because the person I would take graduated like four years ago, but I don’t know a whole lot of people in high school. I could conceivably get a group of…seven people including myself to go, so that in itself wouldn’t be so bad either. BUT THEN I DON’T GET TO WEAR THE SUPER PRETTY 20s DRESS hang on

          It doesn’t have to be exactly from the period but it does have to be “formal,” so this one seems to work pretty well. I really like it. Tbh I think the main reason I’m even thinking about the dance is because I really want this dress.

          Also it’s going to take a TON of willpower to do this econ paper instead of looking at these dresses. :c Oh and office toys. I have a thing for office toys.

            HOLY SJHIT U WOULD LOOK SO GOOD IN THAT DRESS WHAT ON EARTH WHAT. and yeah super christian homeschoolers are a large percent of the homeschool population, which could be difficult for u if you were planning on taking a girl.

            That dress is super cool, SD! I haven’t seen you in a good while, (ever since that awkward, ten minute Skype XD) but I think it’s really pretty and you’ll look cool in it.

          (I already joked to Val that if she ended up dragging me to prom I would wear my Spider-Man suit. I’m absolutely serious about this.)

        Ooh, are we doing general life updates? *jumps on bandwagon* Everything is pretty good at the moment. Aside from trying to do 15 important things at once and still have a little time to relax.

        I started a philosophy club at my school: I’m still trying to get it properly off the ground, but our first official meeting is next Thursday and I’m super excited… I also have to plan and organize people, though, which makes me a little nervous.

        School remains the primary focus of my life, with college applications thrown in now too. But I know where I want to go and I think I’ll probably get in, so all is well in that regard. :3 Environmental science doles out quite the workload every week, and 3/4 of my teachers aren’t the best ever, but so far I’ve still managed to stay solidly within my GPA goal. And AP Gov is really interesting, even if I find our current political culture a little… appalling? Yearbook is dull, Calculus is aight (just because I like math already :p).

        I am now doing three different types of roleplay (tabletop, 1-player, and online), and multiple campaigns within each of those types. (I haven’t been very good about keeping up with any but the tabletop, though. .-.) It’s fun. I wish I could put that on my college applications, but I don’t know how good it would look… “I spend several hours a week pretending I’m either a mage, an assassin, a noble family, a blind mind-controlling warrior, or a four-armed one-eyed seven-foot-tall alien.” XD

        I’m fairly busy socially as well. Along with the roleplaying, I’ve been going to concerts, scavenger hunts (my current avatar was out team logo that I designed and made ^-^), and festivals all over the place. I have quite a few good friends (most of whom are gamers and/or writers :3), two best friends (plus a third who is still my best friend even though we hardly talk anymore), and one… Apple. Who is in a weird sort of category of his own. To be honest, I keep talking to him (er, texting and messaging) primarily because I worry that he would kill himself otherwise (he’s bipolar and very isolated… from what he tells me, his only friends are pot addicts). I wouldn’t mind, except that he takes up a lot of my time and my patience (he can be kind of a jerk, and insists he knows better than me about pretty much everything). But I’m handling that okay as well, I think.

        I’m still trying to decide on a Halloween costume that’s manageable. I’ve narrowed it down to 6 options (Elsa from Frozen, Merida from Brave, Saoirse from Song of the Sea, Weiss Schnee from RWBY, a Snowbell dragon, or an OC of mine), but even those will be difficult to make within the time frame, given my schedule. I miss the days I could just buy costumes. For less than $200, that is.

        That’s about it, except that I draw even more than I used to. Lots and lots and lots of doodles. :D And I keep improving, I’m pretty sure. Oh, and I still don’t even have my permit. Too many other things going on. *sigh*

        I’m glad you guys seem like you’re doing well, if a little inundated with school and other various activities. (Let’s hear from Paperclip! X3) Dances… feh. I haven’t been to one since middle school. It’s become even less a thing I would be interested in in the past few years – partially the events’ fault, partially mine. :p (That’s an awesome dress though btw)

        I didn’t know most homeschooled kids were Christian. Huh. \:-/ The three homeschool families I’ve met have been, let’s see… Mormon, something (idk – her cousins are super-religious, but I don’t think she is), and whatever SD is. Not enough to really see a trend (especially because the first two I met because they went to my *high school* – they’d only been homeschooled for elementary & middle).

      You built water-walking shoes… in a sophomore-level physics class… *jealousy* The coolest thing we built in my phys class sophomore year was a rocket made out of soda bottles (mine was awesome because I painted snowflakes all over it but still).

      Everyone sounds like they’re so productive and all that jazz while I’m here being a trashcan…I’m probably going to fail geometry and chemistry honors (‘fail’ meaning getting C’s) and lately I’ve been stressed as heck. But as of now I’m okay. Yes, tomorrow I am going to homecoming. XD Not with a date or anything because that’s overrated, but just with a group of friends to hang out and stuff.

    • paperclip123 5:05 am on October 3, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      i want to type a lot but i really. do not have the motivation to write a great long thing on my life. you all seem to be doing good so that’s good. i’ve been mostly just doing school things. which consist of going to school, studying and debate society. which is fun, i guess even though i have the most terrible stage fright (to the point at which i walked out of a debate crying last year) but i do it anyway because well how else am i going to improve?
      i’m also going to start horse riding as my physical for the Duke of Edinburgh award. If you guys don’t know what that is it’s an award you get for doing things. like a trek, community service, a skill and a physical activity. so that’s slightly interesting i guess.
      also i just realised how much younger i am than a lot of you like what i just started my gcses and you guys are there applying for colleges and things. you’re all around two years older than me i’d guess. is that weird? do you guys think that’s weird that i’m younger than you? i feel like it might be a bit but not really.
      also i only have a very vague understanding of the us education system but you all seem very busy. so good luck with all that stuff you’re doing.
      also my best friend is abandoning me for like a week to go to new york on the economics trip and i’m not allowed to go so i’m sad about that.
      okay bye guys

        Aw don’t be scared. :( I started over 2 weeks ago already and it’s pretty cool. ^-^ At least socially. (I have such great nerd friends! :D) Academically, three out of four of my teachers aren’t so great, and it’s a bit stressful, but it shouldn’t be too bad now that everyone’s gotten used to being back. And it’ll be fun for you too, I’m sure.

    Hey guys… music ethics: how do they work?
    I never really questioned it until recently (derp), but I’m starting to think that downloading every song I want from Youtube is seriously Wrong. I deleted them, and I’m going to talk to my dad about it as well, but what are your thoughts? Mostly, I’m confused about the gray areas – like if my sister has a CD, is it “bad” to borrow it and download a song that I like from it? That seems to be a pretty reasonable action to me, but I don’t know… or if there’s a version of a song for sale on the Internet, but I like a different version that’s only posted on Youtube (with just a few differences) better, is it “bad” to download that one for free instead? Or if I like one song, on an album of about 60 tracks, but all that’s available to buy is the whole thing for a rather large amount of money? It’s not worth it to spend $15 on a single song that I actually wish to buy, so do I suck it up and just not get it at all? Or what if a song is only available for purchase on a shady site that I’m worried will give my computer a virus or something? Then am I “allowed” to get it for free?
    I think this will be an interesting discussion, and you all probably know more about it than I do. :3 I’d like to figure out both what the socially acceptable “norm” is, and what is actually right/wrong to do by my own ethical standards.

    • clemonade 7:34 pm on July 31, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with downloading music for free, especially not if it’s from a major artist from a major label, because most of the dollar you spend on a given track goes to the people behind the label, who really don’t need that money anyway. With independant artists, I still often download their music for free, but if I really like an artist and listen to them often, I’ll donate money to them- if they aren’t the sort of artist who has a donation page, they really don’t need your money. I mean, we live in a digital world. And you could listen to that music for free in other ways, and if you have adblock, artists wouldn’t be making money off of you listening to it online on spotify or youtube- but you don’t consider that wrong, do you?

    • deartomysoul 8:41 am on August 4, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      idk, i mean people are going to continue downloading music for free even if it’s not “right” because we as humans just love music so much.

    • paperclip123 1:03 am on August 13, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      idk mate i do that all the time because im not allowed to spend any money on music because my parents disapprove of listening to music too much (?????) and youtube-mp3 is my saviour and literally the only way i have music literally

      • Agent Snowbell 10:04 am on August 16, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        Your parents… disapprove of… listening to music to much????? >_>
        That is like the silliest thing to disapprove of IMO. Unless you’ve got earbuds in all the time and you’re not paying attention to things going on around you; then I could maybe understand. But music is so important and awesome it’s like- *gesticulates frantically*
        Man, I feel lucky my parents are both musicians all of a sudden. .-. I’d say your use is definitely justifiable then.
