Technicolor lifeThey just didn't understand,
Of course, I didn't understand
However, at least I was
having the desire
They couldn't even
be given that.
Today, a person came to school.
She was apparently the principal of another school.
I don't know why she came. Don't know how. Don't know when. But she did.
She came with a message. A specific message to give to whoever passed by.
But I received something else.
The exact opposite.
I didn't listen,
grumbled a bit
Because it wasn't
until after I had
after she spoke,
after I listened,
when I started realizing
what I learned.
Because she said so.
Because materialistic things were important.
Because the ideas she had,
the American dream,
of being able to live in comfort,
of obtaining false happiness,
was the one I had to listen to.
That was the reason why.
How lame was that?
It wasn't me who was

"Macy, the computer crashed for the fourth time! How am I supposed to get the collab done?!" I yelled, banging a fist on the keyboard so violently the "L" key flew off to a distant corner of the room.
Macy, who was in the rec room next door, came in. Eyebrow raised, she quickly inspected the scene before sighing and raising her hand in defeat.
"Sorry, Buster, I'm not the technics geek here."
"My name's not Buster! And this is your assignment, too!"
Macy nodded, and pointed at the screen.
"I do know. But I'm serious when I say I haven't any idea about what's going on. I only do classical stuff, like pencil drawings and hand-written stuff. You know that."
Well, I guess she was right.
And I guess the computer liked her presence, because it started again, and this time making it past the login screen.
"Well, finally! Macy, you scanned the drawing, didn't you?"
"Yes, I did."
Nice! That made things a whole lot easier. I opened up Chrome, went on to the DA page,

Link rolled his eyes and stuck the fairy back in his bottle. Navi could be so annoying sometimes!

Things are not going well. Not well at all.
The Bonhomme Richard, my pride and joy, a ship given by the one and only Benjamin Frankin himself, is not faring well. It used to be in fine condition, but now, it doesn't seem to have much of a chance.
I had first spotted the British fleet, led by the Serapis, at around 6 in the evening (now that I think of it, that might have actually been when I started the battle with the fleet), and at that time, I had the American spirit within me- full of daring, courage, and not afraid of anything. I knew that a victory like this would help the American cause, and I had a duty for my country, so I bravely went to battle with the Serapis.
Now, though, the odds seem to be against us. I will still gladly lay my life for this revolution, but now I wonder if the sacrifice will mean anything if we do not win against the Serapis. I have been trying my best to keep the Bonhomme Richard alive a
