Yesterday a 17 year female, who attends Lancaster High School in California, was beaten by a football player, on school grounds, for being gay. After receiving over a dozen blows to her jaw, head, eye and head, all he received was a 5 day suspension by the Lancaster School District. She suffered from a fractured jaw and multiple concussions to the head and the Deputy Sheriff advised her mother to re-think her wanting to file charges against the football player because her daughter pushed him back. The school ended up documenting “assault” charges on the victims school file, NOT the football players!!! To make things worse, the Deputy Sheriff warned the victim, by saying, “Just so you know, if you file charges against him, I’m taking his side.” We’re attempting to raise awareness and bring this story to light because Lancaster High School is trying to sweep this “Hate Crime” under the rug!

I was tagged by beyondtheoath, imjustlivingandlearning, and thebowtierambler

The rules are-

 for the people you tag
3) You tag 11 people

1. A TV movie is being made out of your life. Which washed up child actor is going to use your story to bring themselves back into some sense of relevance/feed the cocaine habit for the next year?
Hmmm…All of the child stars I can think of are old, so the girl that played kimmie on full house.

2. Are you the unstoppable force or the immovable object?
I am the unstoppable force.

3. Describe your plan to bring the leaders of the world together to settle all conflict and bring about an epoch of peace.
I firmly believe that few leaders have any desire to pull their heads out of their butts for long enough to even begin to consider what would be necessary to bring about peace. So I wouldn’t even know where to begin.

4. You’re invited to my wedding. What song do you request that clears the dance floor for you to steal the show?
Um…If by steal the show you mean do anything remotely talented, I think you far overestimate my swing dancing skills.

5. If you could put your current life on hold for one year and do whatever you wanted in that time, what would you spend most of your time doing? (NOTE: blankly saying “travel” is not an acceptable answer because we all would say that. Where? To do what? Be creative!)
I would go to Europe with a German focus, and then I would go to New Zealand, because it’s gorgeous.

6. Who was the most influential teacher in your life?
My 7th grade math teacher was the first person to ever tell me they believed in me. I went from barely making it out of 6th grade to honors math.

7. You’ve been tasked with designing the new $2 bill. Who would be on the front and what would be on the back?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg with badassbitch on the back

8. Describe your favorite pair of socks.
My favorite pair of socks would have to be my ones that when put together make a monkey riding on a banana.

9. You’re able to go back in time and fix one thing you regret in your life. What was it and how will this change your future?
Reality is, everything that I’ve done has been a part of me. Everything that has happened has helped form me into who I am. I’ve learned from every experience, negative and positive, and I don’t know if I would be doing as well if I hadn’t experienced everything. So I can’t say that there haven’t been bad things, but they’ve all made me better.

10. Do you get angry whenever people call plain iced tea “unsweetened”?
No, but I’d never thought about it. Now I’m going to. Thanks.

I am strong willed.

    I like raspberry chocolate chip from tasty treat.

  2. Aside from your cellphone and computer, what can’t you live without?
    I couldn’t live without my bike.

  3. What’s your pet peeve?
    I can only name one? I’ve got a lot haha. I hate it when people honk at me while I’m riding my bike home.

  4. What did you have for dinner today?
    I haven’t had dinner yet. I was going to make another vegetable wrap for dinner.

  5. Do you listen to music when you study/work? If so, what do you listen to?
    I listen to a lot of classical when I study.

    I was at my most spontaneous when I was a little kid. Although I was fairly spontaneous this summer.

  2. What’s one thing you do daily that is important to you?
    I work out or at the very least do something small everyday. It puts me on the right track for the day.

  3. What is the best gift you’ve been given?
    My friend gave me a golden snitch necklace for Christmas.

    I got one of my best friends an entire box of things that made me think of her. I sent it to her when she was going through finals last year.
