Actually, its because I was homeschooled last year and have to meet the counselor separately to choose my electives. At least I have a bit of time to grow/dye my hair (its a weird color now). My electives shall be...

Well, that filled a stereotype! *Checks "Artistic" off Cliche list*
When my mom was at my brother's registration, she said she saw some "Black clad sullen looking kids" (Then did an offensive "Goth" impression, which looked like a depressed bird. Don't ask.) This is why I'm a bit upset about not going on the normal day. I WANT TO GO GOTH SPOTTING IN THE FRESHMEN GROUP! It will help me establish what I can wear to school (Parental unit will not let me wear black lace gloves or a lot of fun things until I see what its like or something.)

I have a question to my elder goths; In ninth grade (Age around 14 normally, I think.) how many goths were in your school? I'm trying to figure out if I'll be the only
And a question to anyone: Do rats make good pets? Do they smell bad? Do they require a ton of attention? Is Edgar a good name for a rat? What if I got Edgar a little rat friend?

That's what killed a few of our birds.) What should Edgar's rat friend be named? (I'm thinking Toulouse, but that was what I wanted to name a pygmy goat...)
