    A lot of the schools in the U.S. have security guards, including mine. I think that the the gaurds are there to protect the students rather than to protect against the students.

    One thing that really bugs me about some teachers is when you ask if you can use the bathroom and they say, "I don't know, can you?" Ughh, that really pisses me off so much, you have no idea.

    Well, do they do their job correctly?

    Nobody has really tried to attack my school, but if someone were to attempt it, I doubt the guards would be of much use. I don't think they carry any weapons other than the occasional taser, and none of the guards are physically fit for combat. The situation might be different in other schools, though.

    A lot of schools have campus police. My high school did. Normally just a cop or two that hangs out at the school all day talking to the principals, staff, etc.

    There was a fight at my school a few weeks ago (they happen fairly often) that was actually between a student and our single security guard. It quickly escalated to physical attacks.

    Never get in a fight with a school security guard.

    Man, I wish I had great opportunities like that for extracurricular activities, though aside from sports, I never found interest in most extracurricular activities. I really failed in that department, which hopefully won't have too much of an impact when my college applications reach those that I applied to.

    The thing is the security guards are too corrupt to be useful. Students get cool with them and they allow them to bring in things. It's stupid.

    Finals week starts today. Statistics and Biology, both classes that I've taken before and failed. If I fail again, I'll never hear the end of it...

    Really? No extra-curricular stuff interests you? There's gotta be something, right? Sports are always a good thing for college applications, so I've heard.

    Anyway, I'm home from school again... Stupid wisdom teeth...

    Last Friday, we had this double football session where these former Premier League players/coaches/whatever coached us for a bit. At the end my PE teacher asked me if I was interested in coming to football practice, especially since football's fairly unpopular compared to all the other sports in my school, and they're kinda short on members. Should I join? (btw the football I'm talking about is soccer)

    Oh, I am in Track, but that's all, really. I'm sure it wouldn't have hurt to have a number of other extra things. Of course, back in Freshman year, I didn't think I'd be getting such good grades, so that's not entirely my fault.

    Finals are kicking my ***. Grades are good but the time I'm putting in to study has been ridiculous. I don't have any tomorrow though so maybe I'll just sleep all day...

    Cool! I do track too. Plus, if you have good grades, colleges might look at you anyway!

    The only thing different is that the sprint coach is retiring from coaching track to coach his daughter in softball. And the hurdles coach, which is my coach, isn't going to be with us this year, for my senior year too. This means that one of the coaches is managing both of those, plus pole vault. It's going to be hectic, but at least this coach was my hurdles coach freshman year. As for grades, I know colleges will look at me for sure. It's a great understatement for me to say I have good grades, but grades aren't everything. They are a huge part, though, I'll admit.

    Geez, that does sound hectic! Good luck with all those coaches. I myself don't have too bad grades; they're all around 92-94 except Earth Science, which I have a 99 in! But I don't think grades in Freshman year count that much.

    Man the personal statement is so tough to write for me. I read a lot of them and have seen things that reeaallly make people stand out. I read about someone going to Japan, someone never watching TV, and someone being gothic, it's like compared to them, all I have is playing Dragon Quest all night. Besides that, I just have generic cliche things to write about that college people don't give two bothers about. Gotta think of something good soon.
