Yes, so for more things to talk about in this dying community, for all of those who read "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime" tell us about it...did you go to the discussion?

By the way, I will be making a post within the week with all of the issues and topics I can possibly think of that involve any of us in any way shape or form and I encourage the rest of you to do the same. It would make me very happy.

Anyway, I just thought I'd post for the heck of posting.

Reply if you are going to the semi-formal dance on Dec. 16, 2005.

And you should all go to the Vocal Major and Community Choir Winter Concert...I think it is just them, but maybe some other performances. It is this coming Tuesday, not sure what time/date, but I will know later...tell me/post about any other upcoming events, por favor!

How do you like it so far? Nov. 19th, 2005 @ 11:27 am
I know many of you are in your first year at CAPA and I was curious how you were enjoying it so far.

I remember my adjustment from Rogers to the old CAPA, but I'm sure things are completely different at the new CAPA high school. I can only imagine how much things have changed.

Actually, I am thinking of going to visit the new school this year - more likely in the spring. It would be great to see some of my old teachers that are 'still' teaching there, which are few. I will say there are several that are teaching there who I didn't have that are still there, especially in the music department.

It would be nice to see how much the school has changed in ever which way since 1984-88 since I was there. [YIKES!]

AIDA! Nov. 8th, 2005 @ 07:24 pm
I know this is like uber old news, but the spring musical already being announced is a new one for CAPA. Usually we don't know until, um, well the spring...

However, Aida is an awesome musical.

Oh, and how about they're making The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime a movie?


Has anyone else read that yet? It's a really quick read, and I think it's a darn good book.

"Girlcott" of Abercrombie and Fitch Nov. 2nd, 2005 @ 08:40 am
Some of you may have heard about this in the news or read about it in the papers. But I thought I'd let you know, since I'm a part of the original group of girls who started this whole thing. We're having a "girlcott" (because we're girls, so we can't have a boycott) of Abercrombie and Fitch becuase of the messages they put on some of their shirts being demeaning to women. Examples needed? Here you go.

"Do I make you look fat?"
"Who needs brains when you have these?" written across the chest.
"Blondes get adored, brunettes get ignored."
"I had a nightmare last night that I was a brunette."
"Anatomy Tutor"
"Tell your boyfriend I said thanks"

etc. etc.

So, all you girls out there, don't buy from ANF and spread this on to all the other girls you know! I'lll post the chain email that we've put together here as soon as I get it. Just pass it on! Because we need to stop the sale of these shirts and get more empowering ones on the market.

The Augut Wilson School for the Creative and Performing Arts Oct. 22nd, 2005 @ 09:39 am
So, I don't know if any of you have heard, but they're thinking about renaming our school in honor of the amazing 20th-century playwright/short-story writer August Wilson. I'm interested in getting everyone's opinion on this. Personally, I think it's a fantastic idea, a fitting tribute to an important fixture of Pittsburgh culture. I've seen a couple of Mr. Wilson's plays myself and read some of his short stories and I think he's quitte incredible. So, any thoughts?

Ok, and to the rest of you: Some DARFUR UPDATE!!

So today's meeting, which was seriously lacking in the people department, actually accomplished a lot. OCTOBER 6TH IS A FAST DAY FOR DARFUR Oh yes, there will be more information to come, as well as a meeting NEXT THURSDAY, ROOM 432!!

Um, that's it, I guess. IM me or comment for any and all Darfur questions, or if you just think Im cool ;)

Little Freshmen... Sep. 22nd, 2005 @ 10:28 pm
Hello, my pretties

I just have a few quick reminders:

I know I've told you all at least once where the STAND UP meeting was. I couldn't make it this week and we were supposed to ask two new people. I wasn't there, but when I left, the turn-out didn't look like that. Now, Allion (S.) and I both went around after that meeting asking you all to come and telling you it was on the Social Studies floor. If we didn't, I'm sorry, and maybe you showed up, but the school was pretty damn empty by the time I left.

Now, I know you're all busy and I am too. My anger might be mis-drected, but either way...You all jumped and said, "I'LL COME!" when Allison (Z.) mentioned it way back when. All last year we bitched and we moaned, and now we have a chance to do something constructive with that and you don't show up?

As I said, I wasn't there today either, but Allison knew. I know it's a big school too, but the fourth floor is the fourth floor. You look long enough, you'd find the room.

Don't take this the wrong way, but COME ON!! You knew I was there, you should've asked me. I tried to come and find all of you.

All right, there's my pseudobitching with enough apology to make it sound like a Bush administration speech.

Alot of the members of this community do not post anything for weeks at a time. I do not really care if you don't post every day but for cryin out loud, if you join a community about the school that you go to, care about it enought to comment once in a while. The only people who have posted in the past week are Darrah and Allison. I am not going to kick inactive members out especially considering this is a small community but if this were a big community, I would. Anyhow, to become a big community, it would be great if you could ask the CAPA people you know who have LJ's to join. TeeHeehee...I feel like a leader of a cult by asking you guys to rank in members. Okay, to get a conversation going, have any of you seen the people down town who were passing out flyers the other day about how if you do not believe the bible, God will take his wrath out apon you and make the world a living hell and make us eternally suffer and not be able to kill ourselves? Well Katie, Adriane, Sara, Meghan, Sam and I saw them and they flyers they gave us are frightening, small minded, untrue, threatening, cultlike...etc.

*pissed and worried* Sep. 20th, 2005 @ 05:01 pm
So I have been talking to Karas alot recently about things and he said that the tech majors do absolutely nothing everyday during majors. According to him, the teacher guy doesn't know shit about tech and does other things and tell them to do what they want to. This really pisses me off not only because the tech majors are doing nothing while basically the rest of the school is working their asses off but because they too really have a talent and passion for tech (if that is possible) and are being deprived after trying so hard to get to CAPA in the first place. Karas says that he is probably going to switch to piano unless this changes. Worried, I asked about the other tech kids and he says Frankel and Shimm both also said they either wan to switch majors or schools. Alright, you are free to rant about how much this pisses you off now.

By the way, the whole thing about how I don't want anyone to cuss in the community has gone out the window. I think that cussing is a great way to express and let out your anger, a right of free speech, and they are just words, so go ahead and cuss your little hearts out if need be!

Hello everyone. For those who have forgotten, I am Rachel and I own this community. I just have a few notes...nothing serious.

Please, in the future, try to use subjects. They make it really conveniant for me to find past posts.
They post that Shimm made about Mr. Worf is not bad enough that I would delete it, but in the future, try not to make mean comments about the school. It is perfectly fine to have an oppinion, just stay reasonable. I don't want any of the attention that anti_crapa got.
There are a few members who haven't posted anything. Please, if you are going to join a community, check in once in a while so I know you are alive!


P.S. To all freshmen...PLEASE try your hardest to make it to the CAPA orientation breakfast tomarrow (Friday, 26) morning. Even if you think you know everything, just go. Especially if you went to Rogers, because I love you (well, some of you.)

SAVE DARFUR Aug. 22nd, 2005 @ 05:04 pm
For those of you who don't know, I'm Allison Zionts, senior Musical Theater major. Hi! I am a part of the Pittsburgh Darfur Emergency Coalition and a member (and hopefully founder of a chapter, this upcoming school year) of STAND UP (Students Taking Action Now in Darfur: United Pittsburgh).

For those of you who don't know: Darfur is a region in Sudan. Currently, the Sudanese government is raping, murdering, and withholding food and water to the African tribal groups. Since December 2003 over 3 million have been murdered and about the same amount have had to flee the country. It is genocide, people, plain and simple.

I have two questions:
1. If I were to have a club for this, after school, maybe a day a week or so, would you guys join? Last year I wasn't allowed to start this club, but I also tried in the last few months of school. My goal is to have it started by mid-September.
2. Rachel (a friend and founder of STAND at Schenley) and I were discussing having a benefit concert in the fall for Darfur. So if we had this concert (assuming you were in Pittsburgh and not leaving for college), would you attend? Or at least, would you support it and donate money? The money would go directly toward humanitarian aid to the refugees (obviously not for the dead people).

My younger sister Emilie is going to be a freshman in Tech Theater this coming fall as well. So, if any of the other incoming freshman get a chance, say hi to her. :)

In response to the last post, as far as I know the people accepted for the fall in Lit Arts numbered around 31 (possibly more). As opposed to maybe 5 seniors. Big difference, huh? Anyway, literary arts is a great program, but you have to be prepared to do a lot of work. But the greatest thing about the upcoming year is that literary arts finally has its own floor! No more sharing with the theater majors (no offense, but you guys are loud). However, you'll have to walk up 8 flights of steps to your locker.

Anyway, any questions or whatever I'm willing to answer.

That's great! Me, snoopi3543 (but you can call me Rachel:),) Avi, thesparklinggem, Rachel R, screaming lamb, Katie, pure_pig333, and Sam P, kre8tv, are all going to be freshman literary arts majors this year. We all went to Rogers for middle school. 14 out of the 16 Rogers 8th grade creative writers are going to CAPA for literary arts. Let see...that is the five I named already, Duncan, Kaila, Luke, Chloe, Janelle, Zach, Chris, Charmaine, and Antwan. There are going to be 20 freshman literary arts majors this year...I think. For the most part, all of us from Rogers are really good friends and a good team...maybe that's just me being optimistic for once. Well nevermind that. I am sure the other six of you will be just as close with us and just as good of writers. I can't wait to see you all there!

On a more sad note, I am going to miss Shannon and Naya! What were you two thinking leaving poor Janelle alone?

A Capa High School Alumni Jul. 2nd, 2005 @ 07:48 pm
Wow, I'm an oldtimer here ;). I thought it would be interesting to join and read up on how much my high school has changed over the years, especially after the move.

Now a little about me.

I graduated from CAPA in 1988. I was the second full time graduating class from CAPA. When I started there were only ninth and tenth graders in the morning. Talk about hallow hallways. This was back at the old Baxter School located at Baxter/Brushton in Homewood.

I don't know how the physical education is there now, but when I went the only department that had to take gym was the Visual Arts (not even Music, I can understand why not the others). So in nineth grade we bounced balls to music and from tenth to twelth grade we took swimming.

Though people came in halftime in the afternoon, the Visual Arts Department remained relatively small. I enjoyed the small classes and closeness we always had with our teachers both during the day and afternoon.

When I graduated, there were only fourty something kids. Nothing like going to a small highschool.


Here's my senior picture. LOL Don't laugh at the 80's hair. I ironed it straight but it rained and it started to curl.
