Today was crazy! A bill is currently being passed to deport any and all immigrants. Last Saturday, thousands of people were marching in Los Angeles. Today, thousands of students walked out of their school to protest against this new proposition, including my own.
This week, we're supposed to be having CST (California Standart Test) testing. We got smart, though... The schedule was: first, homeroom, second, nutrition, testing for 2 hours in homeroom, lunch, fifth, and six. We discovered that homeroom teachers weren't going to take roll again during the testing period, which is why we decided to walk out during nutrition.
You should've seen it. First, it was just about 50 people at the front gate. My friend Dianne and I walked over to see what was up. A few students getting past here and there, no biggie. Then, about 200 more students come marching from behind. Assistant principals and a couple of securities can't stop us all, right?
For a while, the gate was locked to prevent anyone from leaving or entering the campus. All of a sudden, some students start swinging at the securities and manage to break past the gate. At this point, many people took out their cell phones, digital cameras, etc. and begin getting some pretty good footage. Some were throwing stuff in the air; they only added to the commotion. lol
I didn't walk out myself, mainly because of the CST testing to come later on. I walked over to my homeroom to find that only 4 other students were there. We kept walking in and out of the room to look over at the street where the students had marched by. Some students were using their cell phones to keep in touch with other students at the march.
Soon after, I discovered that our school, San Fernando High School, had walked around the block to Laurel Canyon St. to meet up with Kennedy High School. From there, they walked down the street onto Paxton St. to meet up with Poly High School. How cool is that!? XD
I only wish I would've gone... that would've been so cool. ^^ The day wasn't over, though... lol
At lunch time, I was gonna' get some grub to satisfy my hunger. To my surprise, the lunch lines were packed. Most of the lunch ladies were gone from their posts. I assumed they said something like, "Fuck this. We won't even be here tomorrow if that stupid bill gets passed." Hahahaha!
Anywayz... I didn't want to wait in line. So, I decided to go to the library to check if my new lady friend Jeanette was there. As soon as I walk in, I see my other friend Mark arguing with the librarians that he lost his floppy disk. I gave him a simple, "I told you so!" and walked over to Jeanette. Hehe...
I was just watching Jeanette do her homework as always. When she finished, we were talking about how bored we were because we didn't walk out and how we just wanted to go home. One thing lead to another and before we knew it, we were walking around the school looking for a safe way out. An exit that wasn't guarded... >_>;
Unfortunately, we didn't find much. But the walk was nice.
As soon as the bell rang, we walked over to the nearest fence and jumped it as soon as the coast was clear of teachers. She was a little paranoid, afraid of getting a ticket if the cops passed by. I am unfamiliar with this fear... Maybe it's because I've never been caught. Hah, that's how good I am!
We passed by the front gate and saw Dianne waiting for her ride. She asked us what we were doing outside. I just waved and laughed. lol Lucky for us, Jeanette lived only a couple of blocks away from the school. Once we were on her block, she stopped and said she noticed her mom and aunt outside the house. I'm guessing she didn't want to explain things... >_>;
So, I come up with the idea of going to grab a bite to eat at Winchell's Coffee and Donuts to kick it until school was out. She thought about it for a moment before she agreed. We start walking when all of a sudden a cop car turns from around the corner and heads straight toward us. We quickly turn around and call the whole thing off. Talk about a rush of adrenaline! O_O;
I walked her home as fast as I could without looking suspicious and calling the cop's attention. They must've turned the corner or something 'cause I didn't see them anymore... Jeanette and I made our adieus and goodbyes. From here, I walked over to the bus stop where I waited for about 5 minutes.
For once, the bus wasn't packed. Then again, most people were in the center of Los Angeles marching. =/ I got off the bus, walked home, logged on, played Super Smash Brothers Melee... yeah.
In other news, my cousin came over for the weekend again. His car broke down this morning, so he stayed today as well. At 5:00PM, we went to go pick up my mom from work. On the way there, I saw my friends Rachel, Carlos, Irene, and Randy crossing the street. Heh... they seemed glad to see me.
I would've offered them a ride but the car was practically a two-seater. Sorry, guys! = On the car ride home, my mom was all telling me that if there's any more protests I should go; That I should stand up for the rights of any and all immigrants.
Okay... o_O; Before dinner, we gave Shadow (My cat) a shower. The day has come, oh, Dark One! Hahahaha!
That's about it, I guess. I'll get back to eating my dinner now. Goodbye! ^_^
