    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.

    Hey guys! Thinking about getting a blog up in August as a supplement to a program I’m running at the local library. I’m thinking about having some book reviews/news/author interviews sort of thing, as well as articles that focus on concepts taught in the program. If any of you are interested in blogging about books/writing for kids let me know! :mrgreen:

      Hey, that sounds great. I have a lot of feelings about a lot of books, and I’d love to write a review or too for you. Book reviews are just so hecking fun to write. Email me about it.

      Also I’m happy you’re still working with/at the library!

      • Agent SD 11:16 am on July 21, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        Yay! I have a meeting Thursday and then I’ll figure out exactly when the program starts so I’ll check in with you around then ^.^

    Hey guys! Time to jump on the Massive Update bandwagon here.
    This has been my summer:
    ~I took a trip up to Oregon and Washington with my dad to look at colleges and visit Crater Lake and stuff. Although I’ve got about 11 colleges on the table, I absolutely love Western Washington University and it’s my first choice. :3
    ~Once we got home, I had one week free and then left with my mom and my sister to drive up into the mountains for a music camp. I now officially call myself a Percussionist. And, of course, I love it there because TREES! I also made a few friends there, although the one I got along with the very best left the second day. :/ But anyways, I had fun, and then we stayed at a friend’s house and visited more colleges. I made friends with Mom’s friend’s daughter, also, who is a supercool nerd. (She also made me start reading Homestuck… now I’m almost to Act 6 and why am I even doing this it’s such a waste of time blargh.)
    ~Now I’m home from both those things, and I have done the following:
    *read Homestuck, as I mentioned (with commentary from two of my friends – one gives really cryptic hints and foreshadows, and the other one does the same thing in pun form, although he’s actually actively helpful in explaining things once in a while)
    *CLEANED MY ENTIRE ROOM. I finished last night and I’m so proud because the last time I did that I was like ten or something ridiculously young. And now it’s perfect. Well, it will be once I get stuff back up on my walls.
    *procrastinated on beginning driving lessons/community service/summer assignments (I’ll start all those things this week prob’ly)
    *Online roleplay! :D At the moment, I’m busy on the RPG Collective and the Omniverse. Anyone want to join me? ^-^
    *started learning how to read people’s auras. Yeah, I know it sounds weird. It kind of is. I’m being mentored by one of the aforementioned friends, who was born with the ability to do so (I never actually knew that about him until a couple weeks ago). But I *think* it’s working, in a fuzzy vague slippery half-imaginary way. I’m still just beginning. ^^”
    *enjoyed the lovely thunderstorm this morning which is incredibly uncommon where I live, but awesome.
    *updated on the Terces society! :3

      Wow if you’re going to college does that mean ur old

      well done for your tidy room!! mines a mess and i hate it
      i dont roleplay bc idk how and im awkward bye
      please tech me about auras!! i want to read them too
      hey same!! there was lots of lightning here.

      • Agent Snowbell 12:48 pm on July 22, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        Oh yes, I’m positively ANCIENT. :p (I don’t remember exactly how old you are, if I ever knew, but I would hazard a guess that I’m no more than three years older, actually. I’m younger than SD.)

        Unfortunately, my friend made me promise that I wouldn’t teach anyone else (for good reasons, I suppose – it’s not a matter to be taken lightly, from what I know about it. And besides, I hardly know enough to teach anyone myself so far). He said I could direct others to him, if you want, but I have to warn you, he can seem a liiiiittle creepy sometimes, even to me. And his methods of communication would probably be even more disconcerting to you, since you’ve never met him. >_> I don’t know, you might get along fine, who knows?

        • clemonade 4:45 pm on July 23, 2015 Permalink | Reply

          Lily’s like 16. And you’re 17, right? A junior/you said you’re younger than SD.

          I think the total range in ages on Terces is only about 3 years. I mean, Jenny and I are both 15 w/ fall birthdays (so 16 soon), and Angst and the other slightly younger members are like 14.

          • Agent Snowbell 12:05 pm on July 24, 2015 Permalink | Reply

            Not quite on either count, but you’re not too far off either. ;)

            We’re all pretty similar ages, yeah. I actually thought some of us were younger than that, but that’s probably “age stick” (when I think that everyone is just as young as when I first learned their age :p).

      cool

      that is the least interesting reply to a very interesting post and i apologise profusely for the disappointment but i want to acknowledge this cool post without having to make and effort because i am a lazy being.

      • Agent Snowbell 9:24 am on July 25, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        At least you reply. When I don’t have anything interesting to say, I usually don’t reply at all, and then people think I haven’t even read the thing. X3

          That’s basically why I replied :)))

  • clemonade 5:16 pm on July 9, 2015 Permalink | Reply  

    oh, also, guess what? a certain governor *grips desk* of a certain *closes eyes* state is announcing his *grinds teeth together* presidential campaign *slams head against aforementioned desk* this sunday. and so he will no longer be mine and jenny’s and angst’s problem, but rather the whole country’s. great.

    Hello, and welcome to…… WHAT’S UP WITH LEMON(!!!!)
    I have no internet!!
    Primarily because my parents want to control who I can contact!
    Because they think that if I don’t talk to anyone queer for a summer, I’ll magically turn heterostraightual!

    ……anyway

    +I work approx. every other week at this rad tiny art camp called the ArtLab and also every Thursday afternoon at the summer camp at the place my robotics team meets, and take pictures of the kids. You can see those pictures here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/badgerbots
    +On Thursdays after work I go to the library so I have internet access then
    +here is my tumblr, which is (obviously) only updated on Thursdays: http://artgender.tumblr.com/
    +I have read so many good books recently! I will probably post some book reviews (eventually), but for now, here are the ones you absolutely have to read: I’ll Give You the Sun (YA), The Goldfinch (Adult), Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (YA), The World to Come (Adult).
    +I have a flickr, here: http://flickr.com/photos/okspacekid

    COOL!

    *cringe cringe cringe cringe cringe* It’s not a good idea to look back on old comments. Did I really type like that when I was younger with horrible punctuation, grammar, and spelling? (And, like, a thousand exclamation marks and question marks? *headdesk*) This is worse than looking back on old blog posts.

    I apologize that you guys had to go through that. :P

      I still stand by a lot of the stuff I wrote on Terces ages ago. Funny, because I still have Friendbook, and I stand by approximately 0 of that.

      • deartomysoul 10:00 am on July 16, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        Haha, I remember Friendbook…How many editions of that did we have, including the website?

    • Agent Snowbell 10:58 am on July 18, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      Haha, I always say the same thing. XD Mostly I look back in bemused awe at how uptight and *flustered* I always was. Unless I’m reading my old writing, in which case I laugh at my awkwardness. But yeah, I mostly just hope that I don’t feel the same way later about what I’m writing/saying now…
