Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Oh yay, the new kid picks the first secret on the page. Yeah yeah yeah, sure it seems lazy. And yeah, I knew I was going to write this one as soon as I saw it. It doesn't matter, yalll. I read it all, anyways.

I've always been the artistic type. As I sit here typing this, my mind is going in a million different directions. I'm just now the type to sit still. Not enough to be ADD or ADHD or whatever, but enough to make me a concious member of the world. I've always undertaken projects I "couldn't handle", whether it be school or in my community. And I think that's where I get my connection to this from.

No one in my community is particularly wealthy, (Unless you live in the estates, in which case you're...sort of kind of rich?) and my family is no exception. To go along with this, There's nothing for teens in my area. I suppose this could probably explain why I'm turning to ARGs to make my life more interesting. SO if we want to do something, it's up to us. We don't get people who are going to hold our hand, and we don't get bouku bucks from our parents to throw away on our latest pipe dream.

There's the constraint. And innovation is hard as hell to find. In a society where the free thinker is frowned upon as being "dangerous" and "radical", its hard to find people who know how to think out of the bos, much less people who are willing to. Take what I've been doing for the past month, for example. My school's chorus made it to the state competition, but we need 1k to get there. Yeah, that's chump change. [/sarcasm]

Not talking badly about my other chorus members. Trust me, they're f****** great. But the only ideas we got were putting out information in the newspaper to get donations, and doing carwashes. My ideas of reaching out to churches, setting up donation cans at gas stations, and singing outside of businesses for cash were almost completely overlooked by the sheer fact of them being unrealistic.

But I think the more constraint that is put on people, the greater they shine. The greater they figure out just how to do things. And I'm pretty sure when it gets to crunch time, I'll be a little less of a freak, and a little more of a godsend.

You have to do more than tag it, you have to classify it on this page, it's above powervote.

Its great you think like that, I love the idea of singing outside businesses. It means you polish off two needs at once, practising and fundraising.
Best wishes

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
