01:50 pm - Don't forget.
Hey all my govies/greenville friends,

I'm leaving Greenville for good today. No more governor's school with humanities, hall parties, movies on the bus, parking garages. No more river trips, ultimate frisbee, chamber music, and smiley people to brighten my day no matter how bad I feel.

No more IDs to open doors, security guards mumbling mess to you, Jack in his cute hat Erica gave him, locker rooms, practice studios, crappy juries and all-school choir.

No more friend to run around with, no more fountain swimming, no more super iTunes with all of my buddies.

Cherish all that you have, don't let a day go to waste. Practice, work hard, procrastinate and pull all-nighters, break rules nicely, and don't let down your RAs. They love you so dearly, and are so heartbroken when any of us leave. The teachers care so much, let them know that you value your education and will cherish it for the rest of your life.

The music govies always say, "One day you'll be in the real world and say, "Damn, I miss governor's school, no... wait... with juries and exams and Holiday at Peace, who wants or needs it?"" With all the friends, absolute philosophical epiphanies, and growing, never regret this school. It may be that it is all political, that all administration cares about is the money and their social status, but with Schantz discussions, Mr. Franks humor, Ms. Dey's tardiness and kids talks, Dr. Farmer's excitement when people get his physics, Joni Rae and her light switches, Ms. Higgins and her positives/deltas, Mrs. Howard and humanities, Government with Ms. Allen and the hip-publicans, Dr. Stanford and her span-fran-glish, Madame Glass and her silly stories, Mrs. McKnight and her college messes, Matt being gone for a week or so on his honeymoon, Mr. Godfrey and Louis Armstrong, DH and his laughs, Mrs. Smith and her pop tunes for theory aid, Dr. Adkins yelling at the basses, making Mr. Hebert moist, Dr. E with "fabulous" and "sparkle," Ms. Peace never learning your music, Dr. Chen and her awesome self, halloween dance and all, the Raid, new RAs, Barbara's baby, Unwrap all hard candy now, the park, snow and ice days, Andrea's tub incident last year, and all that was and is to come for everyone.

I will always treasure my experiences at SCGSAH for the rest of my life. There were good times and bad times, but everyone always leaves missing it. Stay as long as you can take it, you won't regret it.

I'll keep in touch with all of you.

Love,
Lauren

Add as you will with comments. I love all of you.

"and don't let down your RAs. They love you so dearly, and are so heartbroken when any of us leave."

Right. You don't know what you're saying. That's bunk.

um...lauren bibaud is pathological liar and she didn't even mention why she is leaving...

she has never been at a class on time, she knows the nurses office better then the nurse does, i doubt she can count to three, she wore tennis shoes to a perform on a student recital...

need I go on. what you have in front of you is a farce and a big lie, just like lauren bibaud.

Lauren, we are glad you are gone. You have made the school look bad enough, long enough. It's high time you go home, I'm sure my parents are tired of wasting tax dollars on you.

This is Jason Ward, I want to make that clear.

You need to get off your fucking high horse. I wasn't the biggest fan of Bibaud, but get over yourself. There is no reason to kick someone while they are down, you douche. Go read that shit up there again and remember that she is just saying goodbye to you; if you are such an uproarious (and heartless) fuck that this realization proves impossible then just bite your tongue because she'll be gone soon anyways.

Dear Margaret,

I apologize for breaking the first rule of the govie community, and I really am sorry. But, Bibaud deserves it, and that's all I can say about that.

Again, I'm sorry, I won't break the rules again, I understand why they are there, but I don't think blasphemy should be permitted either.

Lauren, delete this livejournal post, you are so full of shit.

I think I speak for the entire school body when I say, and I quote,

"Thank god she's gone...no one liked her anyway."

Jason Ward.

Hey Lauren. I know we hardly talked much, but you were always really nice to me, and I'll miss carpooling with you. Thanks for putting up with all those times I called Sarah at 12 AM.

I'm sorry you're leaving, Lauren, even though we weren't very close.

But everytime I drink iced tea at the Coffee Underground, I'll think of you.

back maybe...

Jason Ward, get a hold of yourself. You have Tyler, the school let you back in, just play and work hard. If the school reinstates me, I'm coming back. If not, I'm going to Boston to study at Boston Conservatory for 2nd semester.

I want to come back to prove people wrong, to spend my last days with Katie Dey, with a t-shirt stating I survived concertato, to have wonderful discussions with my roommate, Mrs. Howard, and Dr. Farmer about anything and everything.I want to be there for my RA as my hall falls apart. I want to walk around everyday with Jason's hat on so no one forgets what a great guy he was. I want to have chamber music, and tear apart the stage. I want to go downtown, I want to work with rockstars, I want to watch foreign films. I want to make Nurse Gail come on time so I'm never late for music history or theory again.

Sure, there are plenty of reasons not to come back. Nothing you say will change what I want to do.

I am strong and will take this however it comes at me and make the best of it. I don't care what anyone says, thinks, or does about me. If I don't like you, you know it, but I'm not vicious, if I like you, you know it, and if I feel sorry for you, you know that too.

There are people at school I'm not big fans of, but if they got kicked out, I wouldn't say they deserved it, and leave them nasty comments, especially if they didn't deserve it. When something of that nature happens, that's when a step needs to be taken back and some realizations need to be made about who's in charge of you.

I think the students, RAs, and faculty need to open their eyes and stop taking what they are, myself (previously) included. Something's seriously wrong here.

Share this anyone and everyone that you can get to read it. Print it out and show it to the teachers, faculty, RL staff, etc.

Lauren, if you are gone, you will be missed.

I never spent a whole lot of time with you, but I had fun hanging out when everyone else was SATing. Sharing oranges, defacing confederate flag stickers, and meeting old greasy mechanics, that was a good memory.

As to those who would judge you, thats unfortunate. You've got a good heart, and that is what means the most. Take care Lauren, and good luck in all your endeavors.
