What can I say, break has been good to me so far? I'm ready to go back to finish the academics, my year and my life at Conserve. However, I have been extremely lazy this past week...

I'm going to St. John's University next year. (its in Minnesota, not the one in Santa Fe/Annapolis). I'm excited to be a Johnnie. I stayed overnight last night and I had a lot of fun and met lots of really cool people. The place almost reminds me of Conserve.

You know what the best song in the world is? American Pie by Don Maclean.

When she walks
She swings her arms, instead of her hips
When she talks she moves her mouth, instead of her lips
I've waited for her for so long
I've waited for her for so long
I've wondered if I could hang on
I've wondered if I could hang on

"Let me go," she said
"Let me go," she said
Let me go and I will want you more
Let me go, let me go
Let me go and I will want you

When she wants
She wants the sun instead of the moon
When she sees
She sees the stars inside of her room
I've waited for her for so long
I've waited for her for so long
I've wondered if I could hang on
I've wondered if I could hang on

Do you need some time...on your own
Do you need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone
I know it's hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn't time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time...on my
own Sometimes I need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain, ohhh yeahhh
I know that you can love me
When there's no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
'Cause nothin' lasts forever
Even cold November rain

Tom, get your plane right on time.
I know your part’ll go fine.
Fly down to mexico.
Da-n-da-da-n-da-n-da-da and here I am,
The only living boy in new york.
I get the news I need on the weather report.
I can gather all the news I need on the weather report.
Hey, I’ve got nothing to do today but smile.
Da-n-da-da-n-da-da-n-da-da here I am
The only living boy in new york

Half of the time we’re gone but we don’t know where,
And we don’t know here.

Tom, get your plane right on time.
I know you’ve been eager to fly now.
Hey let your honesty shine, shine, shine
Da-n-da-da-n-da-da-n-da-da
Like it shines on me
The only living boy in new york,
The only living boy in new york.

Wow, sleeping ten hours a night plus two hour naps during the day is awesome and really refreshing...

Did anybody see that AWESOME FOOTBALL GAME YESTERDAY?

I didn't think break was going to be this pleasent. It is a crisp thirty degrees outside and I'm either getting some Red Sox stuff today or another Johnny Cash CD. BTW, Walk the Line kicks ass.

Chillaxin for the rest of the day. Hopefully I'll finish American Gods....


Peace

A Zen master once described life as "One mistake after another." He couldn't be more right. One day you could think that you are doing everything right in the world, but someone can point out a mistake, but that is how we grow right?

I have an anger problem. I'm like the Adam Sandler character in the movie Anger Management. I let things get to me, but I don't yell. I really don't know what to do.

I could have a lot more to write right now, but it isn't coming out right.

The song of my senior year [05 Oct 2005|10:33pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
There's too many places I haven't seen
And if I stayed here with you, now
Things just wouldn't be the same
Well I'm as free as a bird now,
And a bird you can not change.
And a bird you can not change.
And a bird you can not change.
Lord knows I can't change

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
And though this feeling I can't change.
Please don't take it badly,
The Lord knows I'm to blame.
And, if I stayed here with you now
Things just wouldn't be the same.
For I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And the bird you can not change.
And the bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change.

Happy [01 Oct 2005|10:35pm]
Love at the lips was touch
As sweet as I could bear;
And once that seemed too much;
I lived on air



Its nights like these that remind me that life is beautiful.

update three [11 Sep 2005|10:51pm]
[ mood | amused ]

So here is an email I sent to the greater community tonight...evidently I pissed people off...LOL




Dear members of the Conserve School community,

There was confusion tonight on the issue of the LAB being open after 6:30. It was to my knowledge that it was going to be open, but it seems that the security staff did not know that. It was told to me that the security staff was told to shut down the LAB at 6:30, while I talked to a houseparent who said that it was supposed to be staffed from 6:00-9:50 for study hours and the library. I know that there was a policy last year that the LAB was closed after 6:30, but if that was true this year, the students have never been informed of that.

This small incident goes to show how important it is to COMMUNICATE! There are a lot of people who live and work in this community and we all need to know what is going on, especially the members of the security staff.

To the administration: I would like this issue to be solved right away. And also please remember to tell the members of security what is going on, I was told they don’t get emails. I’m sure they would appreciate being informed of things.

To the rest of the staff: Please remember to follow your schedule, if you are supposed to be on duty somewhere, please be there when you are supposed to.

To the students: If you are confused about something, tell someone about it!

Have a wonderful evening,

Nick Hansen

[ mood | Fucking pissed off ]

I want to thank you all for your uber response to my last entry. But I suppose I should explain a few things about why I'm so upset at here.

First, if you have not heard there were 6 people who got suspended and 2 who got expelled. They were all seniors and I'm guessing all of you know who they are. It just really frusterates me that they have been here for three years and they all should know the rules and values of this community by now. It really upsets me that they are all seniors too. And when half the senior guys get suspended/expelled, it doesn't put us in a great light. At least out of this, those of us seniors who are still here need to keep being, in the words of Joseph Rajkumar, Shining Stars.

Second, I am really, really angry at the admissions policy here. This year all of the German guys play basketball and we have one 6'5 Scandanvian. And in the Ironwood newspaper it said that Conserve was "recruiting its students for athletics". And we brought that up in our ambassadors meeting and Jim just laughed it off. And to top it off, every day at 5:45 the whole basketball team is practicing and doing a fall leauge. I aprove of preseason training, but this is fucking ridiculous! We are just turning these kids into basketball machines, where do these kids have time for anything else? None of them really care about nature or giving stuff to this community, its all about basketball!

Let me ask a question, we're any of you conservians soley recruited to play a varsity sport? I'm guessing all of you will say no.

There is a certain group of us who still care, who still want to fight for this community to make it what it should be. Needless to say it is shrinking,
But right now I'm promising to fight. I've been to passive.

Right now all of us who are still here should be screaming, kicking, fighting to keep those values alive that we hold in such esteem.




I'm going to fight, Whose with me?

This is the first night I really do not want to be here. That fierce independent streak hit me and I really just want to be somewhere else. It's not that I'm not happy here, but I'm ready to move on, to get out. I'm being held back.

To all Conservians (Seniors Specifically) [12 Aug 2005|03:49pm]
[ mood | energetic ]

Nothings going to touch you in these golden years...

To all Conservians:
I want this to be the best year yet at school. I know all of us have been through a lot of crap with school, but the integrity of those students and teacher will pull through. With Wayne being Dean of Students he will be more open to suggestions.

I know there are those of us who are totally apathetic to whatever the school does, I hate that. This is our last chance to leave a mark on the school. I want this to be a good year. In order for that to happen, we all need to come together.

But most important of all, we need to remember to have fun this year.

Back from the college trip. First advice

DON'T EVER TAKE AMTRAK.
Only one train I took was on time. And that was the 3:15 am from New York to Boston. I finally got home from the trip yesterday at midnight after 36 hours of traveling...I'm wiped

But I've narrowed the list down to five

1. Deep Springs
2. Bowdoin
3. Dartmouth
4. Colby
5. St. John's

Good bye, Good bye [25 Jul 2005|10:37pm]
[ mood | tired ]

I'm off tommorow. On the train to out east to look at the following colleges

William and Mary
WIlliams
Middlebury
Hampshire
Amherst
Bowdoin
Colby
Dartmouth

I'm only sort of excited, but I'm on the train for 60+ hours, so that should give me plenty of time to sort through everything that I need to think about

In other news, I forgot how good it is to space out on my bed listening to classic rock. I haven't done that in a long time.

miss you all

Guess whose feeling good today? Yeah, ME!

So I did what I always do when I feel good, request Bruce Springsteen CDs from the library. YES

I feel like a double bacon cheeseburger with lots of onions, or for my vegitarian friends, a double veggie bacon veggie burger with lots of onions.

I went 50 miles biking yesterday and I'm going twenty more today.

It feels good to have this craziness back

I Win I Win I Win

I'm guessing everyone wants to know, but you know that feeling you get ...its Gumption

ahh one of those great weird words...

But its on nights like these I would usually be up beating up Greg, or talking to Zion, or dancing around the wing to Bruce Springsteen, but here I am, hot as hell and not wanting to go to bed.

God, I hate that feeling, all this fun-ness I want to pass around, but I can't

I like the new Icon
