Why did I get chosen? Topic: Someone smiled at me today i will do my homework

Question: So I was in Art today, doing my thing and what not, and our guidance counselor came in, and she said to my Art teacher, 'Is Sarah here?" and she pointed to me, so my guidance counselor gave me this slip that said "We want you to host an 8th Grader for the day, her name is (her name) and she's from (school name) Middle School" So I'm in 9th grade, and kids usually choose who they want to shadow them (if they have a younger sibling or friend that's in 8th grade, the kid basically just follows you around all day and learns the ropes) I didn't volunteer just because the only 8th graders I know have already shadowed at other schools and are going onto different schools. One of my friends said it was because I was a good student, and how I have perfect attendance so the Counselor chose me to let this girl (who I don't know) shadow me. But, what does my grades and attendance have to do with someone being accustomed to the school? She's shadowing me tomorrow. Eeeep. I have no clue who she is. This is going to be awkward! Woot! Lol, I think my biggest problem is - I'm going to have to act like a normal High Schooler for a day. For instance, I spend a lot of my lunches in the Library ... doing homework that I didn't do the night before (so much for a good student, I might have good grades but I'm definitely not "ethical") so I'm going to have to go to the cafeteria, sit with my loser friends, buy lunch (which I haven't done since September) and she's going to mess up my routine! MEHH. Aha, no, I'm actually kind of excited though. Most if not 99% of my questions involve Boys actually. My last 10 questions are about the guy I like. Sorry to disappoint. And then 10 more questions are about girls who are fake, that I dislike. It's "Driftless Pony Club." I don't know why you think changing it to Porn would be offensive, considering it's jus the name of a band I like ... oh well. LOL. "how guys just oh so love me." Yep, I mean, my phone is just blowing up with guys texting me. One guy. That I like. That somehow makes me a h*e, then fine. I'm a h*e. Hey. I might be a cocky hoe, but don't go insulting other users.

You were probably chosen because you are a good student and therefore a good example for the 8th grader. if that kid didn't have any one to shadow and they needed to pair her up with someone then it makes sense your guidance counselor would choose someone who is clearly put together, responsible and is going to give this new girl a good impression of the school in general. It would have been better for your guidance counselor to *ask* for your help in this situation rather than just throwing you into it but even if your counselor did ask there is really no polite way for you to say no. Just remember that this girl is probably really nervous about entering a high school and will want to make a good impression so as not to be seen as a dumb little kid - try to put her at ease by smiling a lot and reassuring her that high school is not nearly as scary as it seems and that despite all the complaining about massive amounts of homework she shouldn't worry about staying afloat.

Alex Originally Answered: How did the Russian Oligarchs come about and get chosen?
The Russian oligarchs are business entrepreneurs who started under Gorbachev during his period of market liberalization. Rare goods, such as PCs and jeans, were smuggled into the country and sold on the black market for a hefty profit, an unforeseen consequence of partial market liberalization with still-excessive trade restrictions. In the 1990s, the oligarchs emerged as well-connected entrepreneurs who started from nearly nothing and got rich through participation in the market via connections to the corrupt, but democratically elected, government of Russia during the state's transition to a market-based economy. The oligarchs became extremely unpopular with the Russian public, and are commonly thought to be the cause of much of the turmoil that plagued the country following the collapse of the Soviet Union.[2][3] The Guardian described the oligarchs as "about as popular with your average Russian as a man idly burning bundles of £50s outside an orphanage". Post-Soviet business oligarchs include relatives or close associates of government officials, even government officials themselves, as well as criminal bosses who achieved vast wealth by acquiring state assets very cheaply (or for free) during the privatization process controlled by the Yeltsin government. Specific accusations of corruption are often leveled at Anatoly Chubais and Yegor Gaidar, two of the 'Young Reformers' chiefly responsible for Russian privatization in the early 1990s.[citation needed] According to David Satter, author of Darkness at Dawn, "what drove the process was not the determination to create a system based on universal values but rather the will to introduce a system of private ownership, which, in the absence of law, opened the way for the criminal pursuit of money and power."[citation needed] In some cases, outright criminal groups in order to avoid attention assign front men to serve as executives and/or 'legal' owners of the companies they control. Although the majority of oligarchs were not formally related with the communist party of the Soviet Union, there are allegations that they were promoted (at least initially) by the communist apparatchiks, with strong connections to Soviet power structures and access to the monetary funds of the communist party. In official media, oligarchs are usually pictured as the enemies of "communist forces". The latter is a stereotype that describes political power that wants to restore Soviet-style communism in Russia. During Yeltsin's presidency, oligarchs became increasingly influential in politics and played a significant role in financing the re-election of Yeltsin in 1996. With the insider information about financial decisions of the government, oligarchs could easily increase their wealth even further. The 1998 Russian financial crisis hit some of the oligarchs hard, however, and those whose holdings were based on banking lost much of their fortunes. In the Putin era, other oligarchs have come under fire for various alleged illegal activities, particularly tax evasion in the businesses they acquired. However, it is widely believed that the charges are politically motivated, as these tycoons have fallen out of favour with the Kremlin. Vladimir Gusinsky (MediaMost) and Boris Berezovsky both escaped justice by running out of Russia, and the most prominent, Mikhail Khodorkovsky (Yukos oil), was arrested in October 2003, and sentenced to 9 years. Their defenders (often associated with Chubais's party—the Union of Right Forces) argue the companies they acquired were not highly valued at the time because they were still run on Soviet principles, with non-existent stock controls, huge payrolls, no financial reporting and scant regard for profit. They turned the businesses—often vast—around and made them deliver value for shareholders. They obtain little sympathy from the Russian public, though, due to resentment over the economic disparity they represent. In 2004, Russian Forbes listed 36 billionaires of Russian citizenship, with an interesting note: "this list includes businessmen of Russian citizenship who acquired the major share of their wealth privately, while not holding a governmental position". In 2005, the number of billionaires dropped to 30, mostly because of the Yukos case, with Khodorkovsky dropping from #1 ($15.2 bln) to #21 ($2.0 bln). Billionaire, philantropist, and art patron Alexander Lebedev has criticized the oligarchs, saying "I think material wealth for them is a highly emotional and spiritual thing. They spend a lot of money on their own personal consumption." Lebedev has also described them as a bunch of uncultured ignoramuses, saying "They don't read books. They don't have time. They don't go to exhibitions. They think the only way to impress anyone is to buy a yacht." He also notes that the oligarchs have no interest in social injustice. According to Lebedev, some members of this exclusive list - known as the golden 100 - are now down to their l

Whoa, that is so awesome. :) If that happened to me, I'd be honored. Haha. But I'd also be a complete wreck. o.o That kind of stuff stresses me out. It's probably because you're a good student. It's only for a day. Just have her sit with your friends, introduce her to them, etc. etc. It's good to change things up a bit. Hey, you might even become friends with her, which would be cool. :) Jeez. I ask questions about my crushes. I don't see what the problem is. .__.

Up till final wintry weather i could pick wintry weather at any time when. Something approximately the list quantity of snow that i needed to shovel, push, plow or snow-blow clear of structures, roofs, sidewalks and driveways introduced a down aspect to wintry weather. I will pass with wintry weather after a pause for notion as my favourite recreation (Ice Hockey) cannot relatively be performed with out wintry weather, proper?

It probably came down to a decision of who is the most responsible and stable student who won't inflict psychic scars on this little girl. They looked to you and said, "Bingo." Also, thank GOD you use punctuation and spell check and everything. Maybe that's why they picked you. They're like, "This girl shows an understanding of English and how to use a damned period. We must make more of these girls...in order to save the human race."

Haig Originally Answered: What is the best known pet ANSWERING IS 2 POINTS BEST ANSWER 10 WILL B CHOSEN?
FERRET! FERRET! (: Or rabbits. Ferrets are great pets, they love to be handled and they definitely aren't vicious, but I do have a horror story for you; My dad was an hour late coming home once, and his ferret was irritated so he bit my dad's earlobe in half. He had to get part of his earlobe removed, and sadly my dad had to get rid of his ferret because his roommate said "No to vicious animals!". His ferret had been adopted. So, in other words, if you do plan on getting a ferret buy it young and start teaching it not to bite. Costs: Ferrets: $100. First Time Supplies: $200-500. (Cages, brushes, water bottle, food, cage accessories) First time vet vaccinations cost around $60. Yearly Cost: $120 on food, $50 on litter (what isn't actually required, it's only for if you want to litter box train your ferret), $50 on treats and toys, and $70-$100 on vet check ups (Ferrets require check ups because they don't show signs of illnesses until it is usually too late). Check List: Cage Cage Suggestion: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.js... This is a very, very common cage and it has the best reviews of all ferret cages. It's a bit expensive, but a really great and cheap deal for the sturdiness and the safety of this cage. Food and Water Bottle Food Suggestion: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.js... I use this brand for my rabbits and gerbil, and it is the healthiest brand there is. My pets love it. Also, most small animal pet foods are very fattening and unhealthy because they have extra little treats and green things and seeds that are 80% of the food, and that's really unhealthy. I'd suggest getting a bag of the mixed unhealthy food and taking about two cups of it and mixing it with the food I suggested above. That's what I do with my rabbits. ** You'll also want a feeder like this: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.js... and not a ceramic bowl, because ferrets will usually just knock those down. I have the feeder I linked for my rabbits, and it works great. I love it, and I don't have a single problem with it. ** Water bottle suggestion: http://www.petco.com/Shop/Product.aspx?sku=1077775&CoreCat=Accessories_Product I have this water bottle for my rabbits, and it works great. If you want to pay an extra $3, you can get a safeguard for it that works great. It prevents animals from chewing on the water bottle, which a lot of ferret, rabbit and chinchilla owners have a problem with. Cage accessories: http://www.petco.com/Shop/Product.aspx?sku=1077775&CoreCat=Accessories_Product http://www.petco.com/product/12203/Marshall-Pet-Ferret-Cozy-Igloo.aspx?CoreCat=certona-_-productdetail_2-_-Marshall%20Pet%20Ferret%20Cozy%20Igloo-12203 Ferrets love soft cloth to lay in, and these are great hideouts and hangers for your ferret to have. They also like small dog beds. For toys, I suggest small dog toys and cat toys; Dog toys are good for when they are actually in their cage, and then cat toys for when they are outside their cage. Dog toys are more sturdy while cat toys are more flimsy and delicate. A Feeder Food A Water bottle A cage A litter box Litter (You can also use news paper, but there's a debate rather that is unsafe or not because of the ink. I just use Aspen bedding.) A Blanket/Hanger/Hideout Toys Treats Sanitation wipes Animal Safe Air "Cleaners" (Febreez makes a special can for animals that works great.) Nail Clippers Kwik-Stop (just in case you accidentally cut the quick when clipping their nails.) Some ferrets like water, but it's not a well known fact that baths actually make a ferret smell worse. It makes them smell stronger as they try to reproduce their natural scents. Female ferrets are in heath two seasons of the year, and this really makes them smell worse, so it's a great idea to get them spayed. http://www.everythingferret.com/ferret_behavior.htm Ferrets bite when they are excited or trying to play. Dogs do it, cats do it. They also do it when the frustrated, same with dogs and cats. You need to let them know that biting isn't okay. 1. When your ferret bites, go "OW!" but don't say it with a high pitch voice, or else your ferret will still think you're playing. Gently pull back, and carefully pry your body part out of the ferret's mouth if it doesn't let go. 2. If the biting is continuous, then put your ferret in a cardboard box. Make that cardboard box be his time out box, and just leave him in there for a few minutes, or at least until he cools down. (Don't put him back in his cage or his traveling carrier, or else whenever you put him in there he will think that it is a punishment.) Another way ferrets learn not to bite is by gently pulling at the skin at the back of the ferret's neck and shaking it a little bit. This is what the ferret's mother would do. Never, ever hit the ferret or use force. This will make your ferret afraid of you, or even hurt it.
