Cafeteria food Insanity!
Have you ever seen the cafeteria at ASIJ at lunchtime? It’s a good thing you haven’t! ASIJ also won’t even let you choose what you want to eat. They always serve the first thing they see in the refrigerator and then cook it and hope it LOOKS edible. Some high school students even put gum under the table and then sometimes us elementary school students touch it. It gets worse… Messy 1st graders, kindergarteners and 2nd graders use the cafeteria first. They always leave their crumbs and sauce or whatever was in their mouth and came out while they were talking, on the table! Then, we come in a minute later and we sit down at the same table where there are little pieces of meatballs and wet saliva-‐soaked spaghetti everywhere. Also, the occasional dunderhead drops his tray spilling soup and food everywhere. I guess it’s not that bad unless that person is standing next to you…
Akira Hagiwara’s quotes, “ I think all the meals taste like poop and they only serve a small variety of things. Only one or two things are actually good.” Nicholas Glassenapp also says, “We should be able to sit where we want! Even though most of the food is ok, the pizza is absolutely horrible!” The teachers might think it will be expensive, take a long time and cause a lot of grief, but I think if the teachers really try they will be able to transform the cafeteria into a better place for everyone. In conclusion, I think we should be able to have our own cafeteria rights and be able to do what we want to make lunch, a very fun 20 minutes.
Snowy problems! I cannot believe that we are not allowed to go outside and play when there’s snow if don’t have boots on! It only snows once or twice a year, and the unlucky students who thought it wouldn’t snow have to wait one WHOLE year longer. The snow hardly ever goes higher then about 1 centimeter! We are also not even allowed to throw snowballs at each other. SNOW=SNOWBALLS! We should at least be able to do that! Snowmen are ok, but only making snowmen are boring. I think that this is the most stupid rule EVER. I guess some teachers might think it’s “dangerous”, but ask yourself teachers, is snow really that “dangerous”? I think that most children will agree with me that we should be allowed to throw snowballs too. This is making some children have to be very stealthy to throw any amount of snow without getting caught. Akira Hagiwara thinks that, “We should be allowed to throw snowballs. Where is the fun of snow which we have twice a year, if we don't get to throw snowballs at each other?” If we look at the teachers’ point of view, there are not a whole lot of reasons and almost NO good reasons why we shouldn’t be allowed. I think maybe kindergarten children might actually hurt someone or do something bad, but grade 5 kids definitely won’t.
My Mother By Leo
My mother is a work addict. She works so much that she falls asleep on the keyboard. Just today she got back home at 9:00 clock and was pretty tired and cranky. She works at the University of Tokyo as a teacher. She is always busy and sometimes she doesn’t get any sleep in one day! Her eyes are narrow slits looking out from her face. She is often hunched over looking at her computer. She always yells, “Go to bed!” Even though she doesn’t go to sleep until about 11:00. I wonder why she wanted to be a teacher there because she is always complaining that its too far or it doesn’t pay enough money. I think that actually she likes her job, but I still don’t why. My mother is pretty normal. I don’t really like normal people because then they’re not much fun. She is really nice, but she doesn’t really know how to handle a boy because her mother had a girl and her grandmother also had a girl. She also tries to keep fit going to the gym three times a week and she is very paranoid about her weight. She occasionally asks my weight, but when I ask her’s she says, “None of your business!” I wonder if when I grow up I will be paranoid about my weight like most adults. My mother is very caring because sometimes when I struggle with something she tries to help me even though she has a lot of work to do herself. My mother also tries to figure out how I do at school and if I do bad she starts yelling at me. She also cares about what I do all day and she makes sure I don’t sit around and be lazy all day. I guess all people have good things and bad things about them. Even though my mother isn’t perfect she’s pretty nice and when I grow up I hope I can be a good parent too.
Obama Versus Romney
This is the battle of the ancients!!! Obama or Romney??? Master or student?? Who will you vote for? I have absolutely no idea who should win because both of them are equal. Also, I hadn’t ever heard of Romney until about a week before the voting. Personally, I am not American and I didn’t really care until I was convinced that it would have a big effect on the Japanese economy.
Romney wants to decrease taxes for wealthy people and increase taxes for normal people, but Obama would like to increase the tax for the wealthy to help the budget crisis. For education, Obama would like to hire about 100,000 more math and science within the next ten years for k-‐12 grade level. He states that will continue the “Race To The Top” program. The program provides educational funding’s to lots of different states. On the other hand, Romney states that he will give more motivation to states to improve their educational offerings. He also says that he will reform the controversial “No Child Left Behind” program to make schools more accountable for their performances. Obama signed the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law in 2010, forcing all Americans to buy health insurance even if they didn’t want it. He also is going to add an optional voucher-‐back system to future seniors. This will not happen until 2023. What these vouchers do is they offer options for future seniors to have more control over their health care. By giving people the option to spend their Medicare money as they see fit, rather than how the government dictates, will once again put the focus of healthcare where it belongs; in the exam room, between the patient and the doctor. Meanwhile, Romney will make
seniors have to pay higher premiums to receive the same Medicare they now enjoy. He will also change the age minimum from 65 to 67 to try and decrease the amount of money spent on Medicare for seniors. Obama and Romney both promise to increase military spending. Romney will add more ships to the navy and Obama will expansionary defense policies. The only problem is that each submarine will cost more then 2 billion dollars and he will make 3 of them. He says that he will make 15 ships every year compared to Obama’s 9 or 10. Candidate Obama had spent more money on the military then the next 10 countries combined. Both of them like the military, but will crazy spending really help? Like I said before, I don't really think either president candidate is better then the other, but you don’t have to think like me. We will find out soon who will be president of the United States.
