First off, if you understand anything in the title, I'm impressed and possibly in love.
For everyone else, the title is a simple reference to my favorite show, Wicked. In Wicked, which you should look up if you do not know about it, there is a grand part at the end of Act I where Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, flies. Victoria Matlock is a former standby for Elphaba and she played Elphaba in 2007 on the national tour of the show. Now, you have a little background.
Sometimes I just get the urge to want to be someone fictional. How fun would that be for even just one day? Don't get me wrong, I love my current life, but I have to live that every single day. I wake up, I'm me. I go to school, I'm me. I come home, I'm me. I go to sleep, I'm still me. A little change every now and again wouldn't be so bad.
Christmas. The lovely time of year when a jolly old fat man comes down your chimney and gives you the presents that you so desperately wanted.
That's what I want to believe. I want to believe in that magical realm of make-believe that anything is possible. That with just the uttering of a few simple words magic can take flight and grant us our deepest wishes. I think that deep down that's what we all want to believe.
In light of the upcoming election day I have decided to write a rant on the ever popular bashing of the opponent.
Why is it that every year we simply cannot have an election where the opponents do not verbaly attack their opponent? I can't turn on a T.V. without seeing someone say that another person is completely lying to the general public and should not be (re)elected.
I know that as United States citizens we have the right to talk bad about another person, but some of these ads are getting just rediculous. It is one thing to attack an opponent because they did something wrong, but to attack their oppenents family is just wrong.
I've been here awhile and never once have I wrote a journal entry. Everything is constantly changing around us, whether or not we want these things to change, they will. I didn't want to see my school suffer the loss of another principal, but it did. All because of some issues that one particular staff member couldn't just let go of. Sometimes change can be good though. Like my town for instance wants to expand, and grow up. I'd love to see this happen, but a lot of residence have already expressed they don't want change. Why would you not want change if it was going to be for the better? Most likely it's the fact that they've all been here so long that if you move something or add something they'd get confused. To sum it all up change is an extremely complicated thing and it's just going to keep on getting more complicated. Now if I can just change the school's policy on how much money they want to spend on Drama Club...Think big...Like The Wizard of Oz big.
