The Communiqué

A long time ago, in what seems like another life, I went to high school. In this time of growth, I wrote my first extracurricular article in a publication some friends and I dubbed “The Communiqué.” It was to be a publication that focused on the social and political issues we thought most needed to be discussed. We only ever printed one issue. I took quite the trip down memory lane tonight when my dad showed me the copy he had kept all this time. I decided to immortalize it, as much as anything is immortalized by internet presence. So, without further ado, The Communiqué, issue #1

Pet peeve #3

Pet peeve: When I send someone an invitation to do something (generally a text message these days) and I don’t hear back from them at all. If someone asks you if you want to do something, the answer needs to be one of three things: yes, no, or I’ll have to get back to you. When there is no reply at all, I am left wondering whether I should invite someone else, wait for a reply, or maybe even find another activity altogether. My feelings aren’t hurt at all by knowing someone is not sure yet because there are other potential plans he or she is considering. Planning can become stressful when no one knows how many people are involved.
