Living on the Edge[Wednesday Sep 2.09 ¬ 8:13 PM]
Today was the first day of the Berkeley High '09-'10 school year and boy what a doozy. Actually, we jest. Here's the deal. It is in our opinion that those who attend BHS secretly love the absolutely riduculous things that happen. It provides us with a sense of comradery. We grumble and groan but still have immense school pride. However, there are just some issues that may be funny in the future but aren't at the moment.
For example: Classes with 41 students. We have it on good authority that there are some courses being taught with somewhere around TEN seatless people. At first there are some chuckles, but how does one expect to get an education like that?? We are personally frustrated with this because the seats are first come first serve.
In addition, there were teachers on class schedules that are in fact not teaching said classes. We know that quite a few were very upset when a certain beloved history teacher was not present today. We feel as though we're being taunted. (Perhaps not, but that's a catchy word eh?)
Add all these things to a chilling 88 degrees and you get one bang of a start to the school year. But seriously, despite some overcrowding and weird mishaps, generally people got the right classes and don't seem ready to riot.
NEWS ALERT: Hallway status. They are jam packed. Need more be said? Well, yes. We have many thoughts on everything. For those of you who read this, PLEASE WALK ON THE RIGHT. We realize that it's important to stand one's ground (upperclassmen to show authority, underclassmen to show no fear) life would be far easier if people followed simple walking etiquette. This isn't to say that people should try to dorkily squeeze past others against a wall, but rather that they should use one door to enter a building and the other to exit. We are not salmon. As for the whirlpool of doom that is the joining of the breezeway and G Building, just avoid it.
RUMOR: The topic of egging is age old and dearly beloved by all but freshmen. Everyone knows that, or so we thought. It seems that some seniors have a crazy notion to egg juniors? We just want to say that this is a horrible idea. We do not condone it. We also kindly suggest that the seniors who plan on egging just smash them menacingly on the ground rather than people's faces like last year. As for juniors that want to egg and thus may face the wrath of seniors, wait your turn. This is a sacred tradition. And to you freshmen out there, think of it like a big game of hide and seek. Join together in a dodging game. Overall though, let's not make this year's too violent because no one wants Rally Day postponed into the cold months.
We know we have said a lot; there was much to cram in. But rest assured knowing that this novella is a one time deal. We promise to be more concise in the future. Over and out, hasta la pasta, and all that jazz.
