So last week I dyed my hair back to black (haha). The blue was all washed out and I was bored of it.
Yesterday I went to a rally outside the UN building because of the IDF soldiers that are still being held hostage. Eisner brought their Machon kids, Kutz brought everyone and Ramah Berkshires brought Gesher.
So I saw all my good friends and met some cool people from Kutz, unfortunately most of them were going to be leaving but some I will see when I go up tomorrow!
Seeing the Ramah kids was awkward. I didn't like them then, I don't really know them now. We said hi and escaped down to the subway.
Just so everyone knows, most of the Reform Jew camps (at least around me) are filled with gay teens. The group I was with at the rally all had at least one article of rainbow on them. It's one big camp of Jewy gayness yaaay!
So on the train this guy sat next to me and he was all talkative and I was all "Ahhh I'm underage LEAVE ME ALONE!!" but he was nice. However another man at the rally was terrible and horrible and made me cry. My friend C was with Kutz so they weren't allowed to leave their group and she was sluggish and needed a pick-me-up so I got her coffee and a muffin. There were a lot of barricades and people at this rally. I had to duck under one with my very hot coffee and spilled it on me (ouch).
This, however, was not what made me cry. There was a man who was rather tall, wore a sun-hat, big sunglasses and was listening to his iPod the entire time. He had long, wavy, dirty black hair and was over-all intimidating. Now this being a rally about peace you'd except everyone to be quite lovely, and they were. Except him.
I said "Excuse me, could I please get by?" he says nothing. "Excuse me, please, I have hot coffee in my hand!" THEN HE SHAKES HIS HEAD! I can't get through any other way and a man next to him was even trying to get him to budge. Nothing.
So I finally pull through and kind of forcefully nudge him to get by. It was really horrible. I could understand not wanting to lose his spot but really now. There was nothing to see and he's so tall it wouldn't matter. I'm this tiny short thing and he didn't have to move that much. Just twist to the side or bend a little to let me through.
Typing this makes me tear up a little. How pathetic. Oh well. It just hurts to see people who make an effort to be mean.
Iiiiii leave for Kutz tomorrow!!! I'm so excited! I can't wait.
My family and I are going out to dinner now. My "last supper" so to speak. The food there is actually decent. They have a nice salad bar. Yum yums.
See (or write to) you all in about three weeks! <33
