My observations on school

Hi, everyone, this week was average.

February 23: On Monday, things were the same as Friday (February 20). That fight actually happened this time, though.

February 24: On Tuesday, things were hetic, especially around my lunch time. While enroute to a class around 9:45am, I saw several girls arguing, then things were calm again until my lunch. At lunch, I saw a heated argument involving some girls with one girl just yelling at everybody else, then I saw a group of boys/girls gathering around of what may have been an argument. After lunch, I saw a couple more arguments but nothing big.

February 25: On Wednesday, things got wild at about 12:30pm. I had a great day and saw nearly no altercations. In my 2nd period class, we were having a discussion about "Romeo and Juliet" which we're reading right now and people were saying some funny things but they also said things that were more serious and ... just part of the discussion. I even said some things and I think I made some new friends today. However, a melee broke out around 12:30pm. This happened right outside of my gym class. I've got no numbers on how many kids were fighting, but it was pretty intense since several teachers had to break it up. Security and police also broke it up. Other than the brawl, things were actually calm. I'm sure there will be another fight tomorrow, but I will have no insight on it because I'm going on a field trip to the Muesum of Contemporary Photography.

February 26: Thursday was a pretty good day. We went on that field trip to the Muesum of Contemporary Photography. It was nice, except for getting caught in that soaking rain, LOL. Also, at school, the African American Hertiage Assembly was held. I heard it was nice, but I will have to wait and see until I get to see it tomorrow.

February 27: On Friday, things were calm. I only observed here and there altercations. We had an assembly today which was nice. In my class, one of our teachers cooked up very nice food as part of African American Heritage month.

- Thanks,

My observations on school

Hey, everyone, this week has been okay.

Febuary 17: On Tuesday, things were pretty calm. I saw a few regular altercations and some fooling around, but nothing major happened. Also, today, we had a second assembly on school safety. This time, Dr. Artia stated that he got most of the gangbangers out (but of course some are still around). He also said he will still work with the police commander, police officers and staff to continue to keep the school safe. He is also working with the police commander to keep suspended people out of the area of school. The police are emailed pictures of who is suspended every morning and if a suspended students are within 2 blocks from school, they will be arrested for trespassing and most of the crowd of protested to that. In fact, most of the crowd protested to what most of Dr. Artia said. They were not happy. A couple of times, a girl got up and questioned him. Other issues were discussed as well including seeing your consulers about schedules for next year, etc. Tomorrow, I will not be in school due to a doctor's appointment and Thursday, we're going to the Mexican muesum near 18th and Damen.

February 18: I was not in school on Wednesday due to some personal business.

February 19: On Thursday, we went on a field trip to the Mexican muesum near 18th and Damen. It was a very nice experience, then we went to the food court at Lincolnwood Town Mall to grab a bite to eat, then we went back to school and talked about the trip.

February 20: On Friday, things were actually a bit active. I saw a fight almost break out in computer class. Two kids were arguing and a punch was thrown. When the teacher saw it, they stopped. Other than that, there was just general loudness and arguments. Glad the weekend is here since I need to catch up on my sleep.

- Thanks,

Serial rapist may be in Logan Square

I got an email this morning from a friend of mine regarding a serial rapist that might be on the loose in Logan Square (from a Chicgo Tribune article, which is,0,7156225.story). So far, there has been two attacks this month, the latest occurring yesterday morning at 2:30am on the 2100 block of N Maplewood. In that attack, the vitcim was attacked by a male who had a knife. He forced the vitcim into a "quiet" (I'll use this word instead) area and raped the vitcim. The other attack happened on the 2300 block of W Moffat on the 5th of this month. Both attacks are believed to be related.

Now people are going to get raped around here? What is this world coming to?? You better hope the police catch this creep, or you (the readers) or me could be next. I hope both vitcims are alright, but I give advice to the latest vitcim: Turn Off Your Music Player when walking the streets! Please! You'll be safer if you do.
