Does anybody else think that something like this art project described here might be a cool project for PCVS to attempt? Any thoughts?

Yes, it's that time of year again! Make sure you're at school on Friday to vote for next years house leaders!!!! Heck, if you really want to, you can even vote for me, Stacey Rochetta, as Keswick house leader, because I'm not against shameless self promotion! YAY!!!

Yes, this is a promotion for a community. IT dosen't have anything to do with PCVS... but it's still a cool community :).

You can delete it if you feel necessary, Lenny :)

I will most likely be unable to get this put on the morning announcements now because I spent all my free time today on a rather exciting adventure of wandering, so I decided to post this here.

Pagan Guild meeting. Thursday. Lunch. Room 17. Bring any and all pagan-related literature you can. (Tis a resource-sharing meeting...thingie...this week.)

Thanks. *sweeping bow*

Talent show today! Anyone else love it? So good.

Has anyone else noticed that the school seems different from previous years? I don't know if it's the new administration, or the new batch of grade 9's, but the school seems more hostile to me now. I could be wrong, though... but it just seems like there's a lot of inconsiderate people. Like people who stop in the middle of the staircase, or little shitheads who laugh while somebody is in a talent show. I was ready to bring the pain... I'd like to see him do better! Ugh, I'm just really annoyed with the attitude I've seen in the school recently. Now, I could be wrong, but that's just the way it's seeming to me.

Haha, somebody tell me if they think I'm crazy... I really hope I'm just imagining it or something... I'd hate to think that this school that I love so much is changing for the worse...

  Ms Simpson gave me her official approval today of the Pagan group - I think I'm going to call it the Pagan Guild because guild sounds cool - I've been trying to start. Ms Dempsey is going to be the techer advisor and there seem to be quite a few people interested, but I need to get some people to help me with planning and organising meetings and such, so if anyone knows anyone who might be interested, send 'em my way. Anyhow, I'm very excited and thanks for your suggestions for teachers to ask for supervision and such. ^_^

So, like, after an unexpectedly enjoyable Studies in Lit. class ('unexpectedly' as that class is just not particularly enjoyable) in which we had our 'Book Club' meeting, amongst my groups 'omgzit'sjustsointense' ramblings, a thought of an actual Book Club within the school popped up momentarily, and then was gone. I came home and thought about this a bit and felt it would really be a splendid idea.
So, any thoughts? Anyone want to help me out? After the most disastrous Newspaper incident, I don't really want to start another club without something solid to work with, but I wouldn't know where to begin.

Exciting news. Well, exciting for me. After the read-through for Private Lives, Ms. Russell came into the auditorium, looking confused (as Ms. Russell often does :P) up at the lights. She was like, "I need to redesign the lighting system in here." It turns out that Ms. Simpson wanted her to make a list of all the things we need to fix/add to the auditorium's lighting system, and then send the list to a store in Toronto to get a quote on the upgrade. Then Ms. SImpson's going to go to the board and make a pitch to try to get the funds to go through with the upgrade. So Ms. Russell and I went through everything we needed. And I mean everything. LIke, the best possible job. Here's a list of all the stuff we talked about. Hopefully you'll understand some of what I'm talking about. If not, believe me when I say that it's all really good.

Bars/Circuits

-Moving Front of House lighting bar back and adding two extra circuits on either side
-Adding two Front of House vert bars, each with four circuits, on either side of the stage
-Fixing balcony horizontal bars and putting in 4 circuits on each side
- " " vertical " " " " 1 " " " "

Altogether with what's already there, that would make 56 circuits, up from 24 right now/

Lamps

-4 Par-Can lamps
-6 new 750w Ellipsoidal Spots
-2 new 1kw Ellipsoidal Spots

Which, combined with what we've got, makes a lot of lights.

Control

-new 56+ set of DMX (digital) dimmers
-new ETC Express DMX (digital) lighting board


Of course, this will probably not happen, since the board is a pack of bitches. But it would be really fucking cool if it did.

  I want to try to start some sort of Pagan group type thingie at school, but I'm not sure who to ask for the teacher supervision. There are teachers who are nice enough and everything, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're very open-minded when it comes to religion and such. Does anyone have any suggestions or any ideas that might help at all?

1)World Religions -- Mr Bullock, Rm 101
2) SPARE
3)Canadian Law -- Mr Ainslie, Rm 105
4) Canadian History -- Mr Adams, Rm 101


World Religions seems pretty easy so far. Plus, John Ellis and Katherine are in the class too, and sit infront/behind me. Yay!
Someone asked what 'Exodus' meant, and Mr Bullock kept going on about how it means, "coming out"... so I told John (aka Simple Plan) that I was going to write a book about him called The Exodus of Mr Ellis.

Spare... I don't know why I have a spare. I don't have 20 credits yet ('cause I'm stupid), and I was thinking of putting an English course there, but... I'm not sure. First off, Katherine has the spare with me, so I actually have someone to hang out with during that time, and secondly... It's just relaxing. It calms me down, and I feel less overloaded with it. It really helps lessen the anxiety. I think I may keep it.

Canadian Law is nifty. Dan-O and Amanda are in the class with me, too. We watched a video today... and I fell asleep halfway through it. So, I see drugs, hookers, boobies, hottubs... then I doze off, wake up and see Hitler giving a speech (or just yelling) and Concentration camps. 'Twas very confusing. Amanda filled me in on everything though, so I'm good.

Canadian History. This is my third time in Gr 10 History. The first time, I missed a month of school, and failed with a 45%. Second time: I knew all of the information, had near-perfect marks on all of my tests, but I didn't do my homework/assignments. It was my fault that time. I should've passed that time though. When Ms Irwin asks you to bring in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life for the class to watch... that's an A right there, dammit! Plus, I just didn't like 75% of the students in that class, and I'm not a fan of Ms Irwin's method of teaching. I have Mr Adams now, and he laughed/yelled at me when I told him that PCVS used to have a moat. (Long Story)

So, overall... I have 3 Social Science classes that look pretty easy. They're all on the first floor, too! *dances lazily*

What do *you* have?

P.S. I had the most orgasmic giant chocolate chip cookie from the Caf yesterday. Sooo good.

I now declare next week Spontaneous Seekrit Spirit Week. BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT.

Thus:
Monday: Alice In Wonderland
Tuesday: Velvet Goldmine Day Glam rock day.
Wednesday: [discuss amongst yourselves]
Thursday: Victorian PIRATE DAY. ARR.
Friday: Harajuku (aka The Japanese Are F'ing Weird)

Anyone that decides to play along gets a gold star. And 4387398475 Internets points, which you may put towards a guest appearance on White Ninja. Or something.

In other, less psychotic news: No staff yet willing to support the newspaper. Mr. Bullock's excuse was that he is drywalling his basement. Suspect concpiracy. Concidering resorting to blackmail. Require backup. Over.

And ending with an actually meaningful question: How's everyone's first week back been so far?

Imagine something like this on the front page, only... well-written and funnier.

Who is _rcc_?: We're *dying* to know!
by Teri Gray

Dozens of LiveJournal users from PCVS have recently discovered a fellow PCVSer on LiveJournal, going by the alias _rcc_.
With only subtle hints from his blog, the classmates are desperately trying to crack the code that is RCC.
"It's very exasperating," said fellow blogger Megan Richardson. "It's like he doesn't want to be found out."
So far, the desperate degenerates have learned that it is a male, who considers himself, 'dark, mysterious' and 'puppy', and has a crush on Kelly Clarkson.
"What good will that do us?" cries PCVSer Katherine Heigh. "I mean, what are we supposed to do? Grab a yearbook and look for someone that apparently has an eyebrow ring that looks dark and mysterious?"
Apparently, yes. With nothing better to do, the students have grabbed their yearbooks from under their beds, out of boxes, and out of the trash to look for a guy who seems 'puppyish'.
Has anybody made a guess as to who it could be? Bethany Williams has.
'I have a few guesses, and I know one of them has to be right. It's narrowed down to: Dean Shamess, Rob Sangster-Poole, Dylan Wales or Mr Latham.'
Will the mystery of _rrc_ ever be solved?
On behalf of the PCVS bloggers, I hope so.

  It's been a while, but here's more news on the newspaper club!

At the beginning of the term, we are going to make a full-hearted (and timely!) attempt at a school newspaper. We ask that any wishing to apply submit a 250-300 word article on the topic of their choice, preferably the topic they wish to focus on for the duration of the newspaper (i.e. sports, gossip, advice, what have you), to either Mat Adams (xpertblade16 AT hotmail DOT com) or me, Harleigh Shaw (monkeyinthe_unionjackthong AT hotmail DOT com).
A meeting time will be arranged to discuss the newspaper prototype to be presented to the principal, during which we will all cross our fingers and hope for the best. If finger crossing elicits positive results, then we will officially have a newspaper club. At that point, things like meeting times, deadlines, and distribution schedules will be discussed.
Also note that photographers will also be greatly appreciated, especially the multi-talented type that would be willing writers as well. Editing and other more vague jobs to be discussed at a later date.

Leave a comment or drop either of us an e-mail if there are any questions!
