does anyone even read this anymore? i miss how active this community used to be.
So hey guys- I just want to start out by saying I hope everyone had a great summer and I hope everyone is having a good time in school so far. Although I am still stuck in the valley and I am completely 100% jealous of all of you I'm so proud of all of you. So I have started the Prestigious Pierce College, and the first day I'm looking at all the club booths down the main walk way. I realize there is really nothing there for me. I don't really fit into the persian club, christian club,jewish club, or the anthropology club. There were really know human rights clubs and I got frusterated. Even though I faded in an out of WE through out the years due to multiple jobs and other personal things WE still had a special part in my heart and so did the members. So I thought to myself well maybe I could start up WE type meeting or some sort of support group. But as weeks went on school was getting a lil more stressful and so was work so unfortunatly me starting up a club was put to set on the back burner for a while. So today as my friend Allison and I were walking back to our cars from a loooooooong Art hist class I see from a far a sign that says "make abortion legal" and my eyes opened wide up and I ran over to the booth. And to my suprise there was this cute lil woman who was starting a FEMINIST CLUB!! OMG I signed up in like 2 seconds and I told her all about WE and TUFF GUIS and she got sooo excited and was thrilled that I was signing up. So the moral of the story a lil bit of WE is moving to Pierce College. Thanks for reading, it means alot to me. You know where I am so if any of you need to talk to someone from home HERE I AM!! love you all.
WE are having our first meeting of the year this Friday, September 16th, at lunch in E-7.
I know at the end 11th grade last year, there was a lot of talk about creating a space to continue exploring ourselves as women. Clearly, the discussion, the issues raised, and the strong connections made did not end with the year. Lucerito and I spent the better half of the last couple of days brainstorming on how to do this effectively and all-inclusive from the beginning. There are some things about WE that we hope to change, as well as things we hope to keep that made WE, well, WE. I guess we'll have to see where everyone is and where this group wants to take things. I am so so so excited to be a part of a women's group this year and can't wait to get things started.
Thank you Rachel and Rachel for being my inspiration and to every single member of WE for being awesome. I hope that everyone in WE last year is doing great, and I hope memebers for this year still feel as much as they felt 3 months ago.
In honor of the riders and race of the Tour de France I am going to ride a tour of the valley on the last day of the Tour de France, which is next Sunday. Specifics on how far, where and everything else I am figuring out this week, but if you are interested in riding with me and some Tuff Guis maybe then let me know. I offered it to Tuff Guis and thought maybe some W.E. members would be interested, so I come here with the anouncment. It's not a race, just a fun, long ride. Everyone is welcome to come and participate. If you're interested or have questions you can comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, I was unable to make it to the sleepover tonight (Why did I have to get a summer job?!?)but I really hope you all had fun!! I miss you guys and hope that there are tons more opportunities for us to get together!! <3333
Some of you know me, but for those of you who don't, I'm Debbie, and I just finished CORE11 a couple weeks ago.
I just wanted to let you guys know that there are (I guess former now) juniors who are interested in continuing what all you (former) seniors started next year.
