EducationI find myself torn between pride and shame when I think about the fact that I am an alumna of Concord High in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. I am proud because there are some wonderful teachers in that district. I feel shame when I realize how hard those teachers work and how little they receive for it.MDUSD has had several budget cuts, just within the time that I was in high school and the year since. Elementary music and all library programs somehow end up on the list to be cut every time. Both hold very important places in my heart, and I would be sad to see either of them gone permanently. I find myself torn because at the March 11th school board meeting they board of education decided to keep elementary music, however, they also decided to cut libraries, forcing librarians to teacher at least one class, instead of taking care of the library.Music allowed me to become who I am today, and Im very glad that it was not cut.

eating away at meIt really is eating away at me. "What?" you may ask yourself. Well the fact that I'm always so depressed and whining and talking about myself, when I know that so many of my friends have been through so much more than me. They have dealt with some terrible things, and I haven't. It's not right that I am the way I am, but I can't help it. I've tried to get better, but I can't do it alone.No one can do it alone, but sometimes we want to. It's human nature to need support and show emotion, isn't it? Why would there be family groups everywhere if we didn't need them? Why do we have emotions, if we were meant to hide them all the time? I doubt that hiding our emotions and being alone is very healthy. As much as it may hurt, or whatever, emotions need to be shown. Some people do this more often than others. They are often label "weak" or "emo" but thats not a fair thing to do. I am definitely one who would fall into those labels, and I think that everyone has their weak or emotional times,

ChallengeThe hellish fire that burned my soul and left my mind hungry was something between love and lust.Like a blade, the strike was deep and true. It left me empty, my breath high.There was no blood, why would there be?It was his raven hair and comforting arm that caught my eye.Chocolate like silk and a slight wink had me running to his car.It was something between love and lust, nothing more, nothing less.
