MESA: A class for retarded (not really) teens which most likely will drop out of school. You make some wood models and test them. Then at the end of the year you meet at the Convention Center and test models out. Winners go to State. Winners of State go to Nationals in Florida.

And 2 people of the class get 2,000 bucks at the end of the year. But that class is full or retards. who break their wood models 3 days after staring them. It's only for Asians, African American, Latinos, Native Americans, and Women. Phhh.... white men.

It stands for: Mathematics, Engineering, Science, Academy.

Here's the goal of MESA: MESA enables educationally disadvantaged students to prepare for and graduate from a four-year college or university with a math-based degree in areas such as engineering, the sciences, computer science, and mathematics.

Yeah, well there are 4 smart people. Three girls and I (almost all the boys are like "hey man, got some weed?"). We're working on a bridge and only 2 groups made arch bridges (since arch bridges are the hardest to make), it was me and my partner, and another group.

My school is nice, we go by the 4x4 (4 classes first half of the year, 4 more classes second half) and it is ridicuosly easy with band, you only get 75% of the homework. The one class I am really excited about though is Intro to Computer programming/ AP Computer Science (it's a linked course). Basically, I learn to program and I get to make a video game (a very old-school one, but hey.) for the final project. Thats gonna rock. Man I love my school, except for the 'feces' swashtika (sp?) written on the ASB window.

We have the 4x4 period too. But 2 stupid, mothafucking, idiotic, sons of bitches, went and complained to the School District and now we have to go to the 6 periods again which means we need less credits to graduate, which means more poor uneducated people will get into our school, and we will become another crappy school in Seattle. And it's gonna fuck up all my credits and we're dropping HELLA classes like Photography, Fashion, Economics, and AP classes too. And our classes are gonna be hella short so nobody will get enough time to do anything and our whole schedule will be fucked up.

I fucking wanna kick those parents asses. God, and the school supervisor. That Bitch.

Light Beige houses for light beige skinned people. Seattle is fun. Anyways, I'm kinda bored of SketchUp. And there's gonna be a light-rail station built in Capitol Hill (Pot Heads, Anti-War Hippies, Broadway (it's homo-capital of Seattle; the saying goes: Broadway's the Gay Way), all that jazz) and the architect used SktechUp to design it. I thought it was funny cause it was supposed to be one of the top 5 best stations in Seattle.

I love it here in Fort Worth! I kinda like livin in the burbs,cause whenever we get to go its a big treat. Dallas is nice,but its so big and so fake...
Fort Worth is so cool,its very cultural,postwar architecture with 70's solid glass box highrises,the stockyards,the river,the courthouse,the zoo,TCU,water gardens,all right there. Its really colorful and historic and yet so alive and modern,yep,Im proud to live here

I sorta know how you feel though,patrick,with LA.
But I looooooovvvvvvvveeeeeeeddddddd Chicago!!!!! The greatest city in america. I just hate how cramped and dirty and crimy NY is,it was great but chicago was so frikin Gorgious! the architecture,the parks,the river,the food,the people,I loved it all.

Yes. I LOVE Chicago too. It's my favorite city of all time. The parks, the buildings, birth of the skyscraper, the Mafia, it's a completely awesome city. When I'm older I would love to live in Chicago or Seattle. Both awesome cities. We just have more night clubs per capita most likely.

Anyways, I printed my first Panoramic Picture today. It's simple and it was dull at first. But Photoshop helped a lot. I made it the grass look really green and the sky a deep-light-blue (?). Anyways, it looks great, it's just too short and tooo long. It's 2 feet inches long and 7 inches tall. So yeah,,,,

I plan on selling my panoramic pictures and I'll keep this one but maybe I'll sell it later for 50-100 bucks. And when I finish my SUPER-MEGA-DEGA-GIANT-COLOSSAL-TITAN Panoramic of the Seattle skyline, I'll sell that for at least 500 bucks if I can.

God, Catherine Zeta-Jones is so hot in Chicago (movie). I feel stupid for not going to the Chicago play when i came to Seattle. I need to go to the theater to watch that play Cabaret.

Anyways, Since I just watched one of my favorite movies I thought I'd give you guys a list (in no particular order):

Chicago (great movie, great music, great acting, great sets, awesome by one of my favorite movies)
Pans Labyrinth (Sad, Happy, Angry, almost all emotions in this movie, definitely one of the best ever)
Shoot Em Up (pretty good for an action movie, Alicia Keys looked HOTT in this movie)
Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock, First Vertigo shot ever, great ending)
King Kong (2005) (special effects were AMAZING and it was an awesome movie)
The Departed (2 hot guys, and very good acting)
Titanic (Well...I like it ok, plus it got a 4 star rating)
Rain Man (Such a good movie, Dustin Hoffman played a great roll and made the movie whole)
Nightmare Before Christmas (hello, how can't you love this movie?)
Corpse Bride (Tim Burton is an awesome director even with clay models.)
Jurassic Park (Original, such a good movie with an awesome story line)
Breakfast Club (Good movie, 1980's which I love, it was a great movie)

Blood Diamonds is a really good movie too. And Leonardo Di Caprio looks good in that movie. The part where he stays in the cliff was an awesome scene. The Queen was a really good movie also, I always tried to guess what was gonna happen next but I never got it right. The acting was great and so were the costumes. Another Queen Elizabeth movie that was great was Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Great acting, costumes, and the scene where she makes that famous speech was great.

Hairspray....I didn't think it was that good. I didn't like Scarface too much either. Austin Powers has to be in my top too. They're great movies to watch and they're stupid but funny at the same time. I think Undercover Brother is on my top list too.

Aleks, go see cabaret, you will not regret it one bit, the show kicks the butt of many musicals. My local theater company put it on last may and I was glad that I could see it and be a part of it, And in november we're putting on Chicago and I can't wait to help out.

I urge any of you who live in a town with community theatre to go out and volunteer, you get so much more enjoyment out of a show knowing you worked on it.
