About Me:I like to understand an argument in-depth, and that is why I debate. I am definitely open to being a devil's advocate, and I am actually delighted when I can win as a devil's advocate (provided my view still beats my arguments for the other). My education has varied surprisingly in the short time it has been going for. I started out in a huge (at least to me) blue ribbon school in New Jersey, which has now fallen on hard times, and is no longer a blue ribbon school. I then moved to the best school I have ever been to in Upstate New York, in which my class consisted of 25 people the last year I was there. After this I moved to Pennsylvania, and now go to a smaller school, which is nice, but I am still homesick constantly for my small little New York school, which I would not be able to go back to even if I reentered the district (It was one of four K-6's, and the city schools combined for middle school and high school).
Activities:Debate ;)) ; XC (our team were state-qualifiers, baby; except I'm not good haha); WorldQuest (WILL make it into final four next year); band; chorus (finally got approved <333),{ Español, Deutsch } - fluent in neither, but learning; Musical (was too scared to try for a speaking part, and now regret it); Dale Carnegie (scholarship :D); Student Council (I don't really do much though); and when I find time, sleep and computer
Beliefs:Everyone is selfish. It is the type of selfish you are that can make you a good person. There is no such thing in the world today as a country where everyone is a bad person.
Books:Flowers for Algernon- this book is loathed by some of my peers because it was required reading, but to me it is one of the most touching books I have ever read, and hits very close to home.
Movies:The Shawshank Redemption, Titanic, Avatar
Music:Flight of the Conchords (Bus is responsible for this - don't think he'll ever find this page anyway though), Ain't No Reason, Apologize (yeah yeah I know; it's pop. Deal with it.), Classical- Mozart, Beethoven, Handel, whatever the school band happens to be playing because so far none of it is bad, Queen, The Eagles, Where is the Love? (though other Black Eyed Peas songs are >.<) Most recently forced myself to watch Glee and was presently surprised; Chris Colfer is to die for - I love almost anything when he's singing in the spotlight
Quotes:"If the Darth Vader was Mormon, it would give a whole new meaning to, 'Luke, together we can rule the galaxy as father and son'" - Anonymous benefactor ( I know who he is, but won't go throwing names, and nothing against Mormons, but this was hilarious...)

To define the statement, juveniles are from the age of 18 and under. They are not trialed they are considered "informal hearings."

Juveniles should not be trialed as adults if committing a violent felony. The Mind of a juven...
