(3/28/12: now at hellokriti.tumblr.com)
Sitting in my email inbox is my second Wiggio email of the summer. Sent at 12:00 a.m., Tuesday morning: “Reminder: Editors[[‘]] Meeting” Yes, the missing apostrophe jumped out at me. As did the fact that, as of today, 11 full days of summer have gone by, so fast, so…effortlessly. Almost two weeks just slipped by as if time would never end and my summer had only begun. So...
Been M.I.A. for a while.
Well, disregarding a tweet here and there and a reblog or two. Let’s say, good riddance to that!
#Amanda #Bynes #retired ?!!?!?! Please tell me this is just another Twitter rumor…
I was feeling a bit homesick today
so I put on my Bull Spirit shirt and freshman year purple P.E. shorts. There, there, all better :)
First day of summer: @ school redesigning @elestoque — Sara: “I think the front page [of elestoque.org] should look…amazing.” Insightful!

Back from the @NCWIT Bay Area luncheon recognizing young women in tech — very inspired! Met Nita Singh of @MissCEONews — great role model!

Robin Givhan, the Washington Post, and Why On...
meaghano: newsweek: equalitymyth: Well hot damn, Robin Givhan. We know you won a Pulitzer and all, but my jaw straight-up dropped when I read this headline, from Sunday’s Washington Post Style section: “Elena Kagan goes on Supreme Court confirmation offensive in drab D.C. clothes.” Wow! (And is there such a thing as non-drab DC clothes?) But then, there’s the caption, showing Kagan looking...
a new perspective
luciaclin: So today I went to Cupertino High School for the IDC Exchange, and besides the fact that Alex FREAKING Iremazde forgot to turn in his form, it was a real eye opener. To my surprise, Tino only has 1,800 kids compared to our fricken 2,400 at MV. My host, Bianca, was so friendly and welcoming and as she took me through her regular high school day, I sort of felt like I was in middle...

A Numerical Summary of the Last 24 Hours
borschtandburgers: I can’t think the words, “I’m tired,” without being reminded of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” mentally-ill people, and train track managers. This has successfully lowered the amount of complaining I do. I do not eat cats. Trufax. I think a certain frenchman is trying to make a voodoo doll of me, considering the fact that I was unceremoniously robbed of a hair in...
vivalanikkki: I walked to school with losers for the first time, ever. In my three years of going to Monta Vista, my laziness has overcome my care for how big of a carbon footprint I was leaving on the environment. In all honesty, I could care less about how much carbon emissions my car releases into the environment, I drive everywhere. I do, however, care about the people’s lives I’m...
I hope Tino 2010 is having a great senior prom right now (reportedly on #Alcatraz!) #dell #superprom
justdothemath: erinaudreychiu: That last post was very angry. But then again, I’m tired and grumpy because production week makes me tired and grumpy. Other than that, today was a pretty good day because I did nothing in half my classes because seniors were gone. I miss production week. :( I can’t believe I missed the 2010ers’ last late night :( Not even 18 days left with all...
Yesterday was a good day :)
Post-APUSH exhilaration, no-stress classes after that, bio group study, really fail pranks, psychoanalyzing people, Chipotle, Italian organs, gravitropism, secret Google Doc giggles, and being on the same brainwaves with ET, BZ, JKL, and DRK. I’m really looking forward to our senior trip to Asia :)
Go Measure B, go! http://www.sccgov.org/elections/results/may2010/ So far it looks like all the effort has paid off! Good job FUHSD :)
Literature Honors. Some amusing moments
anindo: Andrew: Myrtle is FAT! It totally describes her as stocky in the book! Neha: THAT DOESNT MEAN SHE IS FAT! Lena: Yeah she’s just…THERE. Girls: YEAH. well said. Guys: huh? Lena: You know, when a girl isn’t FAT, but shes not really skinny either? You say she’s THERE. Guys: what? Kasia: Like BEYONCE! Girls: OMG YES! Guys: OH. So you’re saying Myrtle is Beyonce?...
emilyvu: I just added all of ‘10-‘11 new journo kids on facebook and liked their status and liked their new friendships with Kreepy Kriti. Kriti: maybe, but they ddn’t show up in my search so after they accept you i’ll attack Sigh. It’s Kreepy Kritters. <3
HI! Congrats on making journo — next year is going to be amazing! Yeah, I’m FB friending all you guys in a moment of awwwwjournolove. Yeah, you have to deal with this madness all year. Welcome to El Estoque Online :) —Kriti/Kritters/Mama Kriti (Managing Editor) Hello, I love you, journo 2010-2011. & Jeez, 2010, why do you have to leave?
Just finished up my 10th & last CA #Standardized Testing and Reporting #STAR exam. Next year: week-long late start - yay for senior year!
Instead of a detailed recap of the past four weeks: They easily included the most stressful days of junior year (thus far), but also even more of the amazing moments that make me laugh to myself even now as I think about them and the crazy amount of fun that awaits me in the next year. It gives me the giggles just thinking about it :)
[Written April 4-ish.] I know this is quite the belated post, but here it is: New York City was just amazing. The thrill of finding out that I could go and then actually going and then just being there – I just can’t find the words for it. I was just absolutely elated. It’s not that I’ve fallen in love with New York (I don’t think that I could live there for more than a...

doozekalooze: Today was a special day. Today I used my debit card for the first time. Today I bought 3 packs of gum. Today I bought a box of Fruity Cheerios. Today I was very happy. OMG! Tomorrow, I’m supposed to use my debit card for the first time to buy a Burt’s Bee’s chapstick from Target, all in the name of practice for New York :) And I LOVE Shiek boots! ...

Morriss: 'I'm proud of my players for doing that' →
ricestudentmedia: A football team steals copies of the student newspaper because it covers the arrest of players in a drug bust, and the coach says he’s proud of the team. Nice. </sarcasm> And people blame the media for perpetuating dumb jock stereotypes. Good game, Coach.
