I was in 2 science fairs; one in grade 8 where I did my project on time travel and black holes, one in grade 10 where I did it on floods.

I was pried with pills by a resource teacher's assistant and the resource teacher once, and I don't know if this is related to that but the school shrink, after talking to me one day and finding I sounded anxious, told my mother maybe I could do with some meds for anxiety.

I had been on about 11 anti-depressants until we finally found one that worked. (up until today at least)

I refused the pills by arguing about the side effects but they dropped it after they said that every side effect that's ever been reported is on the paper in the box and that's why there were like 100 side effects listed, but I think I still refused it. My mom got flaming mad when she found out they had pried me with nerve pills. I was never on head meds for my whole underage period.

At my high school, it was the fashion amongst some girls to leave the bottom 2 buttons of their shirt undone.

I was in 2 science fairs, one in the 3rd/4th/or 5th grade (I dont remember because the science classes were in the hallway where I had just been switched from one school's 2nd grade to that schools 3rd grade where I was bumped up to that schools 4th grade completely skipping all but a month or 2 of the 3rd grade.) and I left that school in the end of the 5th grade to go to another state.

anyways: breathe. 2 science fairs.

1. was on dreams and the states of dreams and the processes of the brain and respiration. my partner and I had made a tape-but I was goofing off and I ....taped over it. (I don't have much luck with radios). We still did very good with our information boards.

2. second was at the new school in another state and involved my star rat, "Sydney" It was a maze in 2 by 4 wood and a mesh top. He was very good!

miss you Sydney.

I think the second one was on rat intelligence and training.

I didn't really have a good plot. Second place. First place had a smaller version of what I had.
------------------------------------------

I was then chosen from that school to represent at the highschool in poetic writing. *didn't win but attended.
--------------------------------------------

Then I was moved to 'another' state where I was forced to watch my 4 rats die in the snow...

oh gloomy. I'm going to go surf.
