lsmsa 2012-2013 [Mar. 2nd, 2013|05:55 pm]
LSMSA United


So this blog was pretty much every reason I wanted to come to LSMSA. It sounded like an amazing academic and social heaven. I think that after the graduation and/or expulsion of last year's seniors, this ideaology has died.

1) The term gifties is no longer accepted. Most people hate it
2) We have sophomores
3) Miss Sharon is no longer here
4) Dr. Bier is leaving, Dr. Art may be leaving,
5) New Chemistry teacher is terrible. Other new teachers are always absent.
6) The school has a lot of 'normal' people, who mock the 'weird' kids
7) There are only 95 seniors left. The most people have been kicked out/dropped out across the grades this year.
8) The most interesting thing that happened this year are secret love notes floating around sophomores, and a bomb threat Monday.
9) Jenny may be leaving
10) End of The World is no longer played at dances; instead We Are Young is played.
11) The Steamin' Demon has closed for good.
12) A "CaddoGossip" twitter page was started to spread Caddo Gossip, did not really get off to a good start.
1) A lot of dumb people.

Yup, sounds like high school, sounds like LSMSA.

So many things have changed and plenty of people have left since the time I was a giftie. Things weren't always the rosiest but I think back on my time there as one of the most fun experiences I've ever lived through. We had some of the same types of problems nine years ago as you do now.

My advice is to weather through it and enjoy what little time you have left. I still miss the place everyday and wish I could go back. There are still probably things that you enjoy about LSMSA and you should embrace it while you still can. Your friends will be scattering soon so make sure you guys go out with a bang.

Anyways, best of luck to you.

I have just stumbled back upon my livejournal, and slackerville tonight after several years. (I was one of G.K.'s seniors, actually!) He has summed my thoughts up nicely, and I will add:

1) Even if most of your class isn't down with the term 'giftie', there's a few decades worth of gifties before you, and many more to come. OWN IT!! (Sounds like you are the perfect candidate!) :)

5) Hold your teachers accountable and to the same high standards that you are held to as a LSMSA student, and speak up when you feel like something is remiss.

10) I guess I can officially feel like an old person now.

Hang in Giftie. You will be so glad you did.

Well I have to congratulate you on your ten year mark of graduating. If you are at the reunion, I hope you have a good time. Might I inquire who this is?
