Dont pump gas on May 15 2007!!!!!
April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in
protest of gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon
On May 15th 2007, we are trying to get everyone we know to
not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over
$3.00 a gallon in most places.
The average car takes about 20 to 30 dollars to fill up.
If all members did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would
possibly take $2,200,000,000.00 (that's BILLION) out of the oil companys
pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on May
15th and lets try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for
at least one day.
If you agree (which I cant see why you wouldnt) forward
this event. repost it with 'Don't pump gas on May 15th

I bought a new car. It is a 2004 Saturn Ion... manual transmission. It is fully loaded with all the little perks I did not have in my old car. It's silver with grey interior... and has chrome trim on it.

I'm tired, but I can't sleep... this is usually not a problem for me, because I can find things to do...
but tonight, I have tons of things to do, and can't seem to focus on any one thing... making me miserable.
I have my sources for my senior dissertation... and I turned in my research project. All I have left to do in the next 4 weeks is write my dissertation and write a family evaluation. If only I had motivation to finish.

I sit here writing to you all from my new somputer... which by the way is the most beautiful piece of computer I have ever laid eyes on... no matter what anyone else might think.
Oh, and I transfered all my old files to my new computer, including music and loaded all my programs all by myself... and that is not an easy thing to move documents from a broken computer to a fixed one... I couldn't use my USB drive.
As I'm sure you can all tell... I am very proud, and excited.
Also, it appears I may be able to play some decent games now.. so I might be looking into picking some out, after all I graduate in 8 weeks so I"ll need somethign to do after that.

Newstudies are showingthat people who get seven or six hours of sleep each night instead of the recomended eight... are more productive, make more money, and LIVE LONGER. Less than six is still thought ot be bad, but taking any form of drug to help you sleep if you can get five or more hours of sleep a night has health risk eqivilant to smoking a pack of cigarettes a day.
So... the lesson, sleep less, just not alot less. Don't use drugs to sleep (even Melatonin according to one study). Be more producitve, make more money, and live longer.
There is a movie... I believe it was made by MTV productions.... about a girl who is addicted to heroin.
I know she is a suburban brat that snorts heroin with her twoguy friends... switches to shooting up, gets caught by her parents and sent to rehab or something.
It was shown in school... but I don't remember what class or grade... just in high school.
I think the name was on word... not sure though.
FInally, I beleive it was either an MTV production, or airred on MTV as a special movie presentation. Perhaps both.
