So every teacher I told basically exploded with joy and enthusiasm when I told them what I planned to do. My English teacher tore the resume I had typed up out of my hand and declared he was writing a letter to our Rep to ask for a recommendation for me. My AP History teacher said she'd help in any way she could. Etc, etc...

And then I told my grandparents.

*headwall* THEY YELLED AT ME FOR AN HOUR. "Misty do you know how EXPENSIVE that is?" "Do you want to do this or go to college?" "Politics is so corrupt!" "You'll be raped/killed/eaten alive." "EXPENSIVE." "YOU'RE TOO YOUNG." "Why can't you just do a more feminine thing like Psychology?" "When you find a nice boy and settle down you'll forget all about politics!" And that's where I reminded them I was bi, they shut up for a minute and then told me they wouldn't help pay if I was accepted. I tried to explain how this would really benefit me when I go into politics.

I'd been on such a high after my teachers' reactions. They brought me down so low.

Which is why I need the Zinch scholarship even more. That will pay for most of my first year of college and hopefully get them to reconsider DC. I need that scholarship like burning.

And I know you guys are busy and I keep asking, but ANYTHING you can do to help. Because I am applying for that internship and I think, coming from a red state, and with the new "YAY BIPARTISAN" spirit this administration has I have an excellent chance.

So please, I need you to contact anyone you know to vote for me now, later in the Regionals (especially then) and then in the final 64. Message other members of the site and ask them to vote for me.

Get adults to vote for me too. When they register they just say they are college students or "other." Get your parents/friends/family/anyone to vote. *feels horrible for pressuring you guys butbutbut. D:*

THIS IS PROBABLY THE 14TH AMENDMENT.
FUCK CITIZENSHIP.

Date: 2009-03-01 05:59 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] strikely.livejournal.com
BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL 14TH IS SOMETHING LIKE "All persons born or naturalized in the Rahmbamarama, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the Rahmbamarama" BUT A BETTER 14TH IS PROBABLY "THOUGH SHALT VOTE FOR THIS."

:DDDDD I KEEP HAVING THE URGE TO POST THIS ON RBR BUT I'M SURE IT WILL BE BAHLETED.

ALMOST WORTH IT THOUGH, BECAUSE I'M SURE LOYALTY WOULD DRIVE RBRIANS TO VOTE FOR ME.

I WON'T POST IT THOUGH, BECAUSE I'M AFRAID OF THE MODS GETTING PISSED AT ME.

YOU SHOULD POST IT IN THE COMMENTS TO SOME POST IT IS VAGUELY RELEVANT TO. BECAUSE THEY CAN'T GET PISSED AT A COMMENT, CAN THEY?

HOW IS A SCHOLARSHIP RELATED TO ANY OF THE POSTS?

HOW ABOUT IN THE SUBJECT LINE I SAY:

OFF TOPIC, RBR MEMBER NEEDS HELP DESPERATELY

?

I'M SURE YOU COULD MAKE IT RELEVANT.

TAKE ANY POST ABOUT A SPEECH OR A TV APPEARANCE WHERE COLLEGE EDU IS MENTIONED.

GO, "SPEAKING OF THAT... THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE. TAKE ME. I CANNOT AFFORD COLLEGE. NEED SCHOLARSHIP. VOTE FOR SCHOLARSHIP FOR ME, PLZ? OR ELSE I CAN NEVER GO ON FACE THE NATION LIKE RAHM :("

AND FELLOW RAHMBAMARAMANS WILL HELP.

GETTING THIS SCHOLARSHIP WILL HELP ME GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE TO INTERN.

BECAUSE MY GRANDPARENTS WILL FINANCE ANYTHING I WANT IF MY FIRST YEAR OF COLLEGE IS BASICALLY PAID FOR.

Date: 2009-03-01 06:56 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] strikely.livejournal.com
AND IF YOU GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE TO INTERN YOU CAN BE RAHMBAMARAMA'S OFFICIAL STALKER! SO OF COURSE WE WOULD ALL WANT TO SUPPORT THAT...

(I AM ACTUALLY MOVING AWAY FROM DC FOR COLLEGE, 'CAUSE I JUST GOTTA GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE.)

(WAIT YOU LIVE IN DC?.............WHEN DO YOU GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL AND IF YOU GRADUATE THIS YEAR WHEN ARE YOU LEAVING? BECAUSE IF I GET ACCEPTED I'M GOING TO NEED A PLACE TO STAY. OR A PERSON AT LEAST WHO KNOWS THEIR WAY AROUND THE CITY.)

(I LIVE IN DC SUBURBS...AM GRADUATING THIS YEAR AND LEAVING I SUPPOSE WHENEVER COLLEGE STARTS...AND I BELIEVE MY PARENTS WOULD OBJECT TO ME OFFERING PLACE TO STAY BECAUSE IT'S THEIR PLACE AFTER ALL...ALSO SADLY I ACTUALLY DO NOT KNOW MY WAY AROUND THE CITY :D ALL I CAN TELL YOU IS DO NOT GO TO CHINATOWN AT NIGHT EVER)

"It’s time to invest in our kids’ ability to go to college, which is why we don’t subsidize banks but we subsidize kids’ ability to go to college." on face the nation today

"In addition to that, more and more will get assistance so they can go to college in a society and a time economically where you earn what you learn, we’re going to help more people go to college and have the most educated workforce."

YOU GOING TO COLLEGE IN DC IS RAHM'S GOAL IS WHAT HE'S SAYING THERE.

"Why can't you just do a more feminine thing like Psychology?" "When you find a nice boy and settle down you'll forget all about politics!"

WAT WAT WAT.

Actually, my family sounds kind of the same way, only gentler. "We support you, but..." Dad thinks that I should major in something useful like engineering or medicine instead of international affairs, and that watching the news all the time is going to depress me and make me kill myself. Mom and Grandma secretly hope I'll find a nice boy and decide I don't want to leave Georgia after all, and Grandpa just rants about how I'll get raped and killed.

In short: I feel your pain, bb.

Also, voted for you. =)
