Confessions of a tree among winds

Posted by Tali Relo , Aug 09 2013 · 309 views

(okay, crediting this to Princess Grrr)

After a year of dodging every blog war by hiding...

I'm confessing something. In terms of most things, I'm... Well, acceptable to nearly everyone.

Before I start this off, I need to make something clear.

I'm a conservative Christian.

Don't think of industrial magnates or high and mighty evangelists. I'm a fifteen year old guy with his own internal demons, who struggles to cling to love and deal with depression.

My references to the Kaithesean Demon? That's who I'm terrified of becoming.

That said, I've managed to survive for years without annoying anyone politically. Because I believe that my beliefs are mine, yours are yours, and slamming mine in your face isn't going to do anyone any good.

I love you. I love each and every one of you. It doesn't matter. You may annoy me from time to time, but I don't want anything to happen to you. Anything. You may not believe me, but I do. Cruelty is not a part of me.

Princess, how to say this...

It doesn't matter what I believe, if I think you're in the right.

You're doing something incredibly, incredibly good. You're standing up for who you are, and what you believe.

You're far stronger than I am.

I salute you.

I'm here in line right now! XD

Just look for the guy wearing a red, Polish baseball cap.

(if anyone says I didn't bring interesting hats...)

Anyway, hope to see some of y'all!

School

Posted by Tali Relo , Jul 22 2013 · 88 views
the system, public, schooling and 1 more...
Okay, this is a serious entry, and while I may make jokes, this is truth.
 
In ten days I will be entering the public school system for the second time.
 
The first time was in sixth grade, and it lasted for nine weeks, interspersed with spells of crying myself to sleep at night. I'd just lost my mom, been thrown into the school because she was my teacher.
 
The only way I held together was with the help of two or three awesome people I met at Alcoa Middle School, and the knowledge that at the end of those nine weeks, I was free.
 
I would fall asleep at night, crying and praying over and over to just skip the next weeks or pass through them in a daze.
 
Let me be clear: Even if Alcoa was a bad school, I was nearly impossible to bully at that age. Things just flew straight over my head, and I was excessively good at blending in. I got good grades, never really had to work hard.
 
I'm not quite sure what I hated so much, but I think it was the knowledge that I wouldn't be doing this if mom was still around. I guess I kinda associated it with her passing, but...
 
I'm also really bad at adjusting to systems if I think they're illogical. I used to do my math homework in music because all we did was watch Michael Jackson videos.
 
And then I was fussed at. Because I was supposed to be learning something from that.
 
So you understand why I'm apprehensive- I don't want to live through that again, especially seeing as I can actually be embarrassed now.
 
Any tips? Maryville is a really good high school, one of the best in the state, but I'm still worried.

Name change in a week.
 
I'm open to suggestions.
 
Only requirement: I must be the Fourteeth (something).

I'm tired.

A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, 'Hooray for our side'
 
-For What It's Worth, Buffalo Springfield.

^This is truth.
 
I... I don't really have a cause or a group. I mean, I have allies. People I respect. But... I'm not a member of a political party. And I'm tired. Tired of people assuming that I'm fully one way because I believe part of it.
 
Which is why I'm an ether ghost. I keep my mouth shut and head down.
 
It took a friend of mine on Skype two months to figure out my political philosophy. And I had to tell him.
