No cause is lost if there is but one fool who will fight for it. These are strong words which have sadly fallen on deaf ears.

Two years ago, be began the fundraising committee. It was my group and sophies group with a few others including the almighty Istabraq. It was a different time, where the committee was fun, productive and people cared about the cause! Last year things began to change for the worse, but in the end we got the job done. This year, the committee is an absolute joke.

We elected Istabraq as our leader as she knows how to get the job done. There is one minor detail we were ingnorant of in making our decision, she has a heart. She cares about people and is always friendly, but this attitude is the beginning of the transformation from human to doormat. It is these caring, considerate people that are often taken advantage of, and this is what’s happenning here.

Each meeting takes up the entire lunch, and not every topic gets covered. This is due to two main parts: People who won’t shut up, and Istabraqs inability to use power over others due to consideration and a kind heart. The meetings are stopped after every second sentence she says, literally, as there are too many people who just don’t give a damn about anything but thenselves. As for the people who didn’t bother attending the meeting, they caused more productivity than half the room, which is a sad truth in and of itself. The behaviour of some members is nothing short of deplorable.

This organisation is lit on fire and until someone grabs a bucket of water, we will slowly burn until there’s nothing left. How can there be a cause worth fighting for when the only soldiers are mindless teenage drones.


Selectives vs. Communities

August 11, 2008

I don’t understand this pointless war. The communities don’t like the selectives because they think they’re boring and nerdy, and the selectives don’t like the communities because they think they’re lame and stupid. But in the end, aren’t we all just people?

Why is it that these people judge each other by the streams in which oldĀ men in ugly suits placed them? And yes, this will sound sexist, but we all know it’s mainly the boys. So really, is testosterone just another word for easily-provokable?

Whilst talking to a friend in selective, who shall not be named, she stated that the communities were more likable. In a joking manner, i suggested it may be because the communites spend more time getting laid, and the selectives have too much built-up sexual frustration from spending all day playing video games, but don’t tell them that.

In a recent event, a fight between two people, one with mostly selective friends, the other with mostly community friends, it almost came to an outbreak of war. If a selective had a fight with a community, would it really divide the whole grade so sharply? My group of best friends is mixed, some selective and some community. How would a S vs. C war affect others in a mixed group situation?

Why is it that these two categories of boys hate each other so much? What really happened the piss them off? Is all of this because they’re different in some way? The bottom line is people are people, and we shouldn’t be judged by the groups some old guys in ugly suits and horrific ties put us into.
