 Cliché: according to Mr. Webster.

1: a trite phrase or expression; also: the idea expressed by it.

2: a hackneyed theme, characterization, or situation.

3: something (as a menu item) that has become overly familiar or commonplace.


In other words, high school to a T.  It’s almost scary how the lunchroom can literally be the scene in Mean Girls when Cady first walks in and is describing it like a water hole in Africa. Wild savages, running around, put into social groups based upon popularity,of course. Trying to find a table and people screaming you can’t sit here. It’s like we’re all on some sort of imaginary script and waiting for the director to say cut. In a strange way as soon as the last bell rings, the scene is cut and the actors go home and prepare for their next day on set.

Now I begin this way simply because it is one of the only things I firmly believe in, I believe the world is terribly stereotypical and predictable. Of course I want to be against the flow of society (hipster) but so does everyone else. So the normal re-becomes the normal if that makes any sense. Since I don’t know what other people “blog” about, I’m kind of just going to write about environmental views and overall life views. I’m basically writing about the predicaments of life, and SEE Team. Oh and I forgot to mention I am a measly quiet freshman so I usually just kind of blend into the wall.

Now for those of you who don’t know, SEE Team stands for the School of Environmental Education and this freshman team learns basically the same curricula as the rest of the grade, just with a Mother Nature sort of tint. For me, I heard about years before I was going into to high school and I thought it sounded interesting. Some of my friends decided to join it, and I was like, you know what, let’s try this “shannon-again” out. That’s how I decide most things. I just do it for no real reason, Nike would be proud. Yes I could over analyze it like did in my original blog that I am required to make for the team, but I don’t want to have to write that all out again. It’s true most of my decisions are made base on eenie-meanie-minie-moe.

Now I realize that SEE team was just brought back to RB after a year of not being offered. I also learned that there used to be a required extra period for it. That extra environmental class got you a half credit by the end of the year and was simply used for an extra block of time. If that was still required to be a part of the team I probably wouldn’t be a part Clarion right now. Since a high number of students wanted to enter the team, like in the low eighties if I’m not mistaken, it was brought back. I’m quite happy about that since we are closely linked with the Brookfield Zoo and many other things I should get some hands on activities.

But that doesn’t mean it’s all easy. Things like math are difficult to add into to field experiences and that makes algebra just as tricky. The reason I started with cliché is because so far my short high school career has been just that. And I want to inform you if it changes from that way. Of course there will be the unique complications only one person can have. I promise you most of the time my writing will not be nearly this formulated and informative. Usually it’s kind of broad and all over the place. I just wanted to introduce myself.

I’m Alexia Kingzette and I am going to try to keep it up and let you know any stories that become of interest in the environmental world as well as any sudden revelations of this amazing school. No, there is no sarcasm in that in case you were wondering; this school really is a decent one.

Well, welcome to the undefined blog. Get it?  There will be a definition, but the whole thing itself is undefined.
