WHY ARENT THERE ADULT-SIZED PLAYGROUNDS
LIKE EVERYTHING IS THE SAME AS A KIDS PLAYGROUND
WHY DO WE NOT HAVE THOSE
theme parks. just. theme parks.
but u have to pay for theme parks
that’s the adult part
son of a bitch
ladies and gentlemen, behold
the St. Louis City Museum:
Playground for adults and children.
They even serve alcohol.
I know where we’re going guys
You don’t understand, i totally just lost my mind when this appeared on my dash.
City museum used to be part of F.I.R.S.T robotics championship in st. Louis and after the competition everyone would pile into busses and into this crazy mad house. Its insane, imagine 10,000 teens rampaging through here. If you think that big suspended arch tunnel looks sketchy, imagine how it felt crawling through there with twenty other people at the same time. And there is a TEN STORY slide. This isn’t the place for small children or people with claustrophobia. There are several tight tunnel ways and other craziness that will actually have you in fear of being trapped but it is so worth it.
BUT WAIT THERES MORE
Your thinking why is this called a museum when it clearly isn’t? It actually is. It is a “museum of the city.” All that stuff was built from recycled parts from st louis and the third floor holds an actual legitimate architectural museum of pieces of old buildings and features and there is also a full aquarium.
Its not just totally amazing and fun looking but its like part of st louis. Go there and you wont be disappointed.

Why’re you being mean to my mum?

Back on track (just kidding)
So im back home in California and robotics has ended.
So that means i can get back to razia’s shadow and that spg thing i started and never finished right?
Unfortunately im swamped with all the other things i didnt have time for before, like school projects and various other things i have to catch up on.
It looks like my hiatus is extended to the end of school because i simply dont have enough time in the world.
Im a very busy person.
Being idle is unnatural for me.
I laugh at all the people who have senioritus!
Just kidding, i cry longingly to senioritus because i would be all over that if it weren’t for so many things riding on the completion of my activities.
I have a tendency to dig my self into holes i cant climb out of.
You do not understand how much I want to give up right now.
My GPA is so bad and my grades are so bad and I’m going to fail pre cal after missing a week for championships. And I’m here for two weeks then I’m missing another week of school for ISEF. What is the point anymore
The whole point is people who qualify to ISEF get into MIT and do great research. I’m the fluke who doesn’t deserve to be there.
i wouldn’t be so stressed about MIT. me and my friend were talking about it while we were walking around scholarship row at the competition. he says that the people who are accepted get in because of impression. sure, a good portfolio of the things you’ve done and a list of classes you have passed will get you noticed, but what happens is that they send an alumni or someone to do an interview with you. its the interview that decides if you get in or not. as long as you sound like you know what you are talking about and that you are genuinely dedicated to what you are studying, they will accept you.
Woke up in st louis this morning
Realized that i left my propeller hat in California.
Today is a rough morning…

THIS IS SOO EXCITING!!!!!
So frustrated. There’s a chance I’ll get a full paid research internship to Trentino, Italy for the summer and I have to miss it because debate camp.
When I saw Trentino, I was like ‘Is that in California??’. Then I realized the comma was BEFORE the Trentino, and I was like wait….this isn’t in the U.S.
A part of me just wants OUT. Of my life, of knowing these people I know, of being where people know me. I just want to hide. Italy would be as far away as this little Texan girl could get.
sometimes, getting out sounds like a sweet escape. i wanted out when i was a freshmen. i wanted a new start, an new image, and new life and a new future, so i changed schools, but it wasn’t as sweet as i thought it would be. i DID make friends, and in the end im happy with my decision, but it was hard. i was lucky to find people who accepted me, because there where a lot of people who didnt. it was almost to the point where i wondered if i should change back and go back to the meritocracy i had before. jumping out of my life could have ended very badly and in some aspects, it did. my NEW image somehow came off as know-it-all even though im not that smart. people came to expect a certain level of effort from me all the time and i was easily guilt tripped into joining clubs and competitions that i wanted no part of. i was volenTOLD to be part of the Rotary Model U.N and tried as hard as i could to get out. it became a huge brick on my already heavy workload.
i dont know what Debate Camp is, but i assume it costs money to go. and i also assume you already paid for it. talk to your parents about trying to switch. see if you can get your money back. tell them how much this could influence your future and how valuable this chance is. how much good it will do. if you cant, then you obviously have to knuckle under and go to the camp, but if you can, you might be able to change your summer around.
i also know nothing about this internship. are your a senior? if your not, then maybe the offer will be there next year and you can go.
either way, i know how it feels to want to just hurry up and leave the house, move out, and never talk to your family again, but even when you do, you will probably find yourself coming back. it sound great, out there in the real world but its not. its hard. you will always need someones support. dont be too eager to just leave, or you’ll regret it
I have a confession.
I have been bullied. And the worst of it was done by adults. I didn’t even think it was bullying until I finally told another adult and she told me that the bullying wasn’t acceptable. The thing is that I should have told the leading mentor sooner. But they already did their damage and I feel more worthless than ever. Words hurt. Actions hurt. Sometimes your snap judgments destroy people.
i was bullied by an adult mentor from another team in the middle of regionals. (our team has a sworn silence to never talk about what exactly happened or which specific team it was, but it happened.) i was bullied again by someone else just yesterday. our school is in a business park and we wanted to use this lot so we could hold a rummage sale to raise money for a senior trip. this lot has never been used and has always been empty so whats the big deal, right? well im there watching the stuff (all alone) when my mom and sis decide to show up and this guy from one of the businesses comes up to them (who are looking around) and starts throwing a hissy fit about how we aren’t supposed to be here. apparently his business owns the lot and their complaining that we are here even though one of my teachers sent an email to all the business in the area asking them if it was okay to use the lot. i get in the middle of it and tell him that they have nothing to do with the sale and then he starts throwing a fit at me. it was after i successfully shooed him away that i reflected on the moment and really appreciated what a jerk he was. my mom and sister could have been random customers and he went to yell at them. who does that? and after he knew that i was the only one that had anything to do with it he continued to yell at me, a child. a grown man yelling at a child. how pathetic could a person be to target kids?
but strangely enough, im thankful for my run in with the mentor during competition. i saw what pathetic was and watched my mentor back me up and tell him off. i saw what standing up against a person looked like; what being aggressive was. so when this guy approached me at the rummage sale i used what i learned and told him off.
in the end i dont feel bad. granted it sucked when it happened because they used their age to make me feel so little, but now im proud. im proud that i took action, and most importantly, i can walk away from this knowing that i am a better person then they are. that they are the lowest of the low and are not worth any more of my time.
yes, you should have told someone sooner, but you also need to learn how to deal with thing yourself. dont let them tell you what to do. if they insult you, then insult them back (i dont care if they are an adult, when they act like that then they are acting like a child.) call out their B.S. But, of coarse, you don’t HAVE to be aggressive. you can calmly tell them that they are acting un reasonable or immature or just tell them how you feel.
i know its scary. when my mentor encouraged me to go back to that other team and tell them whats what, i was terrified and begged him not to make me, but he had my back and gave me courage. he taught me how to fight.
focus your fear and turn it into energy. use it to fuel your courage, but if things turn sour, dont be ashamed to cry. make a scene and attrack attention. people will see what they are doing, and it will make your bully look bad.
