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 guy:

http://www.zinch.com/Voting/Regionals.aspx?GroupId=44#Tucker-Abbott

Is a sweetie. When I voted for him in exchange for his vote he told all his friends to vote for me too. He's from Vermont so I'm not really competition yet....Vote for him, please?

....

I know I'm asking a lot recently but anyone who's joined the site and plans on actually using it for themselves? Could you maybe...CAMPAIGN FOR ME? I mean offer to vote for people in other states if they vote for me?

When I left for school this morning I had sixty votes and now I have eighty. :DD I DON'T KNOW HOW. :DDDDDDDDD

I'm trying to write a script, get all gussied up and webcam myself to post a video asking for votes on youtube but I'm having trouble with the script. Hmmm.

Any suggestions on campaign methods? I'm going to make a Facebook group and a myspace group for Zinch but anything else?

UPDATE ON ZINCH

Voting starts today at around 9:00 Mountain time.

And I've been informed you don't need an account to actually vote. It logs your IP address (though I think you can vote more than once. Hint hint?)

*pokes friends who have a lot of friends* HEY VOTING WILL ONLY TAKE A FEW SECONDS. ENCOURAGE THEM TO USE THOSE FEW SECONDS AND VOTE FOR ME??? D:

So there's this scholarship....

....And I'm in the semi-finals. It's an internet-web-based site and semi-finalists from states move forward to regionals and then regionals move on to national.

For Oklahoma, I am one of the semi-finalists. : D

Did I mention the scholarship was $20000?

Catch is? It's set up like a popularity contest from this point on. People have to vote for me. To vote you only need to be a member (it's free and if you're still in high school next year you can try for the scholarship too.)

http://www.zinch.com/

http://www.zinch.com/Voting/Regionals.aspx (Oklahoma, I'm Misty Grady)

Voting starts tomorrow and ends on March 4th (and day before my b-day. :3)

I'd ya know, *kicks dirt a bit* be glad if you guys would sign up and vote for me.

....Because you love me? Yes? RIGHT? ;___;

I MEAN SURE IT'S A LONG SHOT, BUT I FIGURE WHY NOT TRY?????

CONGRATULATIONS PRESIDENT OBAMA. I WILL NOT MISS YOU BUSH, KING OF REAL LIFE TROLLS.

Yes, I am skipping school for politics.

[livejournal.com profile] rosieandtheband, [livejournal.com profile] fruityphobia, [livejournal.com profile] orbitaldiamonds, [livejournal.com profile] sirdrakesheir, [livejournal.com profile] balmyone, [livejournal.com profile] yukitheawesome, and [livejournal.com profile] elfmanfan I would love to welcome you to my journal. <3


Also, I've cut some people who I haven't talked to in forever. The communities I've drifted away from are also getting the cut. This was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] sirdrakesheir.

*STEALING FROM LINES FROM BLAGO IS HOW EVERYONE SHOULD DEFRIEND PEOPLE.*

I don't believe there's any cloud that hangs over me, I think there's nothing but sunshine hanging over me.

In conclusion, I'd like to end by saying the sun totally shines over our parting.

Ilu all.

Essay and Music

English essay. Why the HELL did I pick satire as my topic? What possessed me? Sure I love satire. I live, breathe and eat satire these days. It's all an opinion, there's no concrere proof that satire influences or changes anything. I could just do an overview of how satire has changed and taken different forms over the years, give examples from Jon Stewart and his satirical news show to Mark Twain and slavery to Jonathan Swift and his proposal to eat babies. *twitch* George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Stephen Colbert, Charles Dickens. I can add in how satire works well at undermining the government because it can be used subtly and fly under a fascist governments radar, if that makes any sense. Most of this is going to be opinion. God. I should have just picked a safe "done a million times" topic like Modern Feminism Vs First Wave Feminism.

....I don't have enough songs to fill an 80 or 120 GB mp3, but 16 and 32 GB is too small. They aren't making 40 or 60 anymore. >< Should I just say screw it and get the 120? It's only about twenty dollars more. God. Choices.

RIP Toshiba Gigabeat

D: My mp3 player died. And they aren't making this type anymore. Three years. Damn. I need to decide between a Zune or an Ipod but. I just don't know. I've heard horror stories about both.
