Okay, so the person that originally claimed the March DCC hasn't been online in three weeks, so I'm going to assume that he forgot about claiming it and just make it myself.

Um, yeah. Make sure to follow the DCC rules (http://pkmncommunity.com/showthread.php?t=65124) and stuff.

Yay! Finally a DCC without a weird and fancy title! Just in time for my birth-month too! <3

Yays for a new month. Full of excitement of waiting til' April.

The title is actually interesting without the extra things, yeah, good work on making the title. XD

Amachi
February 28th, 2007, 10:43 PM
heh, you finally got your wish, didn't you Ashley? XD

Yeah, I was wondering about who was gonna make this month's DCC too, since I haven't seen NekroBoi around as of late.

February has ended so soon. Then again, it only had twenty-eight days this year. :P

Ohoh! March is too my birth month. I can now share this month with someone(s).

OMG.. its March already? Yay! This year seems to fly by.

Ohoh! March is too my birth month. I can now share this month with someone(s).
XD, March is my birthday month too!
I'm turning 15 in less than a week Woot~

I was thinking if February had 30 or 31 days

Wouldnt that be fun! Well.. actually no as we would have more school and less holidays.

It would be kinda weird suddenly changing from 28/29 days to 30 or 31. But no one would really take notice.

Extra days in Feb would suck. It means longer to April. Leap year next year, yay..not.

Oh yesh, I do that to Nan and Pop. But then they come back with that, too..

It would mean longer to everything. Not just April!!

Um..last time I checked April's the month that means to most to me. So of course I'd want it shorter. Everyone else could prefer the other ones.

Wow, so Feb's already over? o_0 Well, it's the first day of Autumn here in Aus, and yes it'll get colder. Heh, there's also been a bit of a thunderstorm in Canberra, and some rain, though this occurs during the evening, and all the rough part of the storm occurs overnight, as I sleep through it.

Forever
March 1st, 2007, 12:14 AM
But April also has jokes, which is equally as fun as the last few days of the month. XD

Goku - We've had coldness and rain toos.

It wasn't so bad. Actually, the night before last night there was a major storm (which I slept through), which caused big pieces of hail to fall, and the more central part of Canberra some places were damaged by the hail, and the heavy rain caused some minor floodings, which lead to the closure of certain schools and the ANU (Australian National University) for the day, as they clean up the mess and fix any damages. Nothing too serious though, and I don't think there were any injuries. Well, my school wasn't affect, thus wasn't closed, but on my way the traffic was huge!! The aftermath of the storm really...

LOL But NZ is like in between the tectonic plates, so you'd be pestered with earthquakes, right? Or is NZ a calm and stable place?

Yeah, its on the two tectonic plates but we havent had any major earthquakes here for at least a century I think. They reckon the next big one will hit sometime around 2040ish or something like that.

You guys are lucky having four seasons, In here just two seasons, either dry or rainy seasons.

Pikabloo
March 1st, 2007, 02:16 AM
Hehe, yeah. Here, there's only three 'seasons'. The hot season, which seems to last all year round. The rainy season, which also seems to last all year round. And the cool season, which doesn't seem to exist at all xD

Blennix
March 1st, 2007, 02:18 AM
speaking of seasons. Do you think that the seasons are changing? Because i remember last year we had a bad storm (rain) which caused flash flooding.

Forever
March 1st, 2007, 03:13 AM
Yeah, of course they are changing, it's getting hotter in Summer and cooler in Winter..The middle seasons are better, they don't change at all. Yay for no change *Is a hater of change*

Wee a new month is here ^^ Febraury was kinda...boring to me, it snowed one day and after that not anymore >.>

First day of March, sunny weather outside here and preparing for my final test *yay*

Pikabloo
March 1st, 2007, 03:28 AM
Well, good luck on your test xP

I have to go and revise for my two tests tomorrow... But I can't be bothered to do so ;-;

Forever
March 1st, 2007, 03:32 AM
We've already had a test. Since we are so lucky not to recieve much tests, we just get less homework. My school doesn't make sense but they care for the students <3

Hayate
March 1st, 2007, 03:35 AM
Lucky you, our teachers at school kinda hate us >_>

Here we receive school in 5 periods of each 6 weeks, and in the 6th week we get a test for every subject we've had the former 5 weeks >_>

And Shiranui do your best on your tests also ^^ StuDYING might be hard but once you started and get into it it goes kinda fast (I think..>_>)

Forever
March 1st, 2007, 03:41 AM
Aww, that would be hard. It'd be much easier if you had tests scattered throughout the year so you could relax.

Hayate
March 1st, 2007, 03:42 AM
I had it that way last 3 years...and it was much better imo. But as I stated before, my school is crappy >_>

March 1st, 2007, 03:45 AM

xDD I like the hidden message.

I don't find it hard to study, I just find it hard to start studying. I can study without a problem, but only with very important, end-of-year exams. For end-of-topic tests, like the ones I'm going to have tomorrow, I find it insanely difficult to go to my room, open my books, and start studying.

Hayate
March 1st, 2007, 04:17 AM
Hidden message? Well I couldn't obviously see it since it was hidden >_>

Reminds me I got a Math test waiting...and I hate math T_T *goes studying*

Pikabloo
March 1st, 2007, 05:35 AM
I hate Math too! High five! xD

But I have to say that it is one of the subjects I excel in, so... O_o

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 05:57 AM
I'm in geometry and we're learning about circles, but it's a really easy unit. I don't like studying for math though -_- all you can really do is just practice and read theroms.

Shiranui, doesn't it suck whe your good at things you hate XD (science for me =D).

Pikabloo
March 1st, 2007, 06:14 AM
Yes, it does suck xD

I don't exactly know why I hate Maths, though...

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 06:16 AM
Eh, I just don't like it because there is a right and wrong answer >.> So yu can do a lot of hard work and get nothing out of it. I like English, you get to write and not everything has to be right or worng. You can analyze stories your own ways XD

Speaking of which, I just finished readin "Lord of the Flies" for that class.

Amachi
March 1st, 2007, 06:17 AM
The only time when I think Math's sucks is when it either just gets way too repetitive, or when we get assigned way too much work.

Unfortunately, they both happen quite often XD;;

Takara: That's why I dislike English, cause you can make up anything, but as long as you have a quote to back it up, then it's alright XD

I saw the movie for "Lord of the Flies".

Those kids are crazy @@~

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 06:19 AM
Amachi, indeed it does D=. Everything always carrys on over to the next lesson and we have homework, like almost every night. However, we were assigned none last night for once this year =D

It is true, we can use quotes to get away with anything (just about) XD We're watching the movie tomorrow, so i'll see if I like it at all XD

Amachi
March 1st, 2007, 06:22 AM
Gah!

We got like, triple the amount we usually do today, cause we don't have a lesson till next week @@~

That, and the class is way to far behind XD

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 06:25 AM
Oh no, triple is a bit much XD The most we had in one day was two homework assignments and then a review page..ew =P We're behind too because are class cannot concentrate whatsoever XD so our teacher is trying to find a new method of taming us (good luck to her with that) XD

so wait, do you have more days to make it up then?

Amachi
March 1st, 2007, 06:31 AM
Eh, we have all weekend + friday to do it so it ain't all that bad.

Umm, in terms of lessons ... no, we don't have more time. Just more work shoved into each lesson XD;

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 06:42 AM
Nah, the teacher could have made it all due the day after it was assigned and that would be blah D=. I don't like having a lot of homework because I try to get it done in the two consecutive study halls I have everyday. It's never fun sitting in silence for 90 minutes, especially if we're not freshman.

More work in each lesson usually means more notes and that sucks XD

Amachi
March 1st, 2007, 06:48 AM
heh, so you're forced to sit in silence? XD

We all just get shoved into the library, so at times it's very difficult to get any work done.

Fortunately though, if the study periods are at the beginning or end of the day, we don't have to be at school at that time ^^

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 06:53 AM
Yes ;; and now we have food and drinks banned from us during that time too =P I have the last lunch period so study hall was my snack time ;O; We used to be able to go to the library once we were signed out of study hall but now the teachers hate that so we're not allowed to anymore.

Lucky, even if it is at the end/beggining of the day if we do't go we get a saturday detention. My school is so strict. XD

Hayate
March 1st, 2007, 07:40 AM
Your school strict? You're probably allowed to do more things then I am >_> Don't drink, eat, talk, share MP3-players, walk, talk, breath and anything like that when studying in a open study center or classroom while teachers are eating themself but it's prohibited from us. At least, we don't have school uniforms...yet >_>

Erhm, anyways xD The reason why I hate Math is since I suck at it--I study enough, get extra lessons after school, all you can imagine but it just isn't enough. Probably something about a low brain capitcity or something >_>

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 07:51 AM
I hate when teachers eat in front of us .__. Especially around lunch time ><.

I know, I stayed after school yesterday to get help but it didn't do much. The teacher made me do practice problems for an hour and it was hard to do when I was confused =P

Lil' Schu
March 1st, 2007, 08:03 AM
My teacher was eating a donut while I was walking next to him. I asked him if I could have some, and he said I couldn't because he was sick. But I'm all "I don't care! I'm hungry! ;__;!"

But...I can eat whenever I want now, because it's Thursday, we got a foot of snow, and school was called for today and tomorrow...^__^

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 08:06 AM
Evil...just evil XD My teacher was eating cake and she said I should move away from her food because I sounded terrible XD They should know better than to have food around us hungrey, sick people XD

We have school off today too =D it was hailing and thunderstorming. Lightning struck our powerline and now we have no power.

Hayate
March 1st, 2007, 08:17 AM
True true, teachers just like to bully us near-lunchtime while they're eating cake and whatever special food they have. Really, I can feel my stomach roaming when hey do so >.<

I've never had a day off in my entire life due to weather conditions....guess hard rain is still enough to let school continue xD

Kyoko
March 1st, 2007, 08:21 AM
I know, and it always in special food too, they can't just eat a cookie. Oh no, it has to be a peice of freakishly good smelling cake, brownies or whatever else their teacherness entitles them to =P My stomach always makes noises before lunch in studyhall. it's quite annoying actually XD

This is our second day ever. Last time we got over a foot of snow and the ice truck guy didn't come through our area, so it was nothing but ice. Yeah, hard rain would keep you in school ;; we'd be off too many times if we got off for that XD

Lil' Schu
March 1st, 2007, 08:48 AM
Our teachers always bring good food to the teachers' lounge...like, dessert pizza. The thing is, in band, we only have 5 people so sometimes we get permission to raid the lounge =P It rocks~

The only thing that sucks about snow is shoveling it. x_x

Ya know, I don't think we've ever had enough snow here that's need shoveling. Occasionally the roads have, but still not a lot.

You're so lucky. XD The one time I had anything the teachers had was one time while I worked in the counciling(sp?) center. The secretary brought me this really yummy salad thing. It had grapes though, which was kind of odd. It was still good.

I've never had to shovel snow, even when it needed it outside. *hides*

I like it nice and plain. :3

It's been like that here this year. It's snowed twice and it melted really quick both times. There was nothing to shovel. -_-; At least I got to walk in the snow the second time. It was really pretty.

Instead of snow, we get tons and tons of rain. It's been raining really heavily, on and off, for the past few days. We even had a rainbow today. It's a shame; I love snow. We won't see any more. It's March.

...speaking of March, we've been over here in Germany for a year. Woah.

Lil' Schu
March 1st, 2007, 10:31 AM
That's a long time to be in Germany. But you're going to go to college soon, so you'll be gone.

Back from shoveling that foot of snow x__x Snow is very pretty~ <3

Sammi

Yep. I'll be close to you. Too bad I can't drive -- I've always wanted to meet someone from PC. :D
I might learn how to while I'm there though. We'll see.

It is pretty! We used to live in a place where we got tons of snow every year. It was so nice to walk outside. It was always so quiet, peaceful, and pretty... I miss it.
Ever since we moved away from there, I haven't seen tons of snow in a winter. There were a few snowstorms in Kansas and one when we got here, but that was about it.

You'll be able to get a driver's license, I'm sure. If I can get one this summer, and I'm only 14/15, you should be able to get one. You're responsible, after all. ;P

I'll upload the pics to my LJ and you can look at them, and that'll be like, my snow to Germany. I'm uploading them to Facebook right now, and it's taking forever. I took so many pictures.

I'll take the rest off of your hands. Even melted snow is welcome here. ;D

I think they're fine plain. They still get the point across. Besides, if it gets too fancy, it starts to get really annoying. Let's see...

Oh, I'm sure too. I just have to get off my lazy butt and get one. Oh, and I'd kind of like to have a car. But that's not a necessity, not really. At least I'll have a driver's license to use when I need it. XD

Okay, that'll work. 8D

Of course it's going to take forever, you have tons of pictures. That's expected, really. You can only upload so fast.

Not in Lincoln though; they have a bus system. That's one of the reason I like it. I won't *need* a car there.
Of course, if I leave town, then I will. That's the bad thing about living in the Midwest, I guess. Hardly any cities have bus systems of any kind, so you need a car. It's annoying for people like me who are afraid of driving. Well, was. I'm not so scared now.
I wish the old town we lived in had a bus system. But then again, maybe it was too little for one. I lived on a base smaller than it that had a free bus system. It ruled.

As for a car... that'll probably be a ways off. I'll need money first, since I won't be living with my parents, so I can't bum a car off of them. :/ My sister is so lucky. She basically has my mom's car for free right now.

Tell me when you've done it on LJ; I'll look then. I'm surprised I don't have my LJ open right now. I'm addicted to that thing.

March 1st, 2007, 11:13 AM
Yes, you guys are tormenting me with this snow-talk. XD

Yay for Facebook though! That is a lot of snow. Well, it's more than I got. We only got a couple of inches. But the problem was that over top of the snow was a thick layer of ice, so it took forever to melt. But it's finally almost gone~! <3 Hopefully I won't be getting your snowstorm, Lexy. Looks like we're just going to get rain tomorrow~

Oh, and about driving, I was scared to drive at first too... but once you actually do it, it's not bad at all. I can't even imagine how I'd survive without my car. o.o

We have a lot of ice over our snow, so it's not going away as fast either =P Plus, it's been raining and storming over here too, so I couldn't sleep last night with the loud storm ;; I thought it wasn't supposed to storm during the winter XD

I get my Mom's car for free, but she gets to buy a really new fancy car when I take it from her ;; Though I guess it's only fair since I won't be paying for it XD I get my liscense, I think sometime in December or January. They just raised the amount of time for us to get our liscenses.

Drummershuff
March 1st, 2007, 11:26 AM
As soon as I turn 17 I'm not sure that I'll be getting a car. I mean, this year I'm suppose to be getting a motorbike when I turn 16, so I don't think it's going to be very practical to get a car straight away seeing as I'll have some type of transport, which is all I'll need a car for anyway.

I don't think so. We once had a tornado during the winter. Tornadoes and winter do not mix. XD

You're so lucky. I know I'd never get any offer that good unless the car really was junk or something. If it was junk, I don't know if I'd want to drive it.

Why did they raise the time?

That makes sense. Besides, I imagine a bike is cheaper to manage than a car. The only downside is space, but I imagine you won't need it.

You're getting a motorbike? Sounds scary yet fun. I know I couldn't use it; I can't even ride a bike. I'm not going to be on one with a motor if I don't know how to keep my balance. XD
Do you know how to ride it yet?

For me, having a car is pretty much a necessity. If I didn't have it, I'd be stuck on campus all the time. I wouldn't be able to go home for the weekends, I wouldn't be able to continue my dance classes, and I wouldn't be able to keep my job either. I'm so glad my school allows everyone to have a car on campus with no extra charge~

And now I have an appointment with the endodonist. Bye, all~

What about public transport? :o That's all I use, I really can't afford a car. Besides, you can only get your license at 18 over here, and I've only just started driving lessons.

I don't think so. We once had a tornado during the winter. Tornadoes and winter do not mix. XD

You're so lucky. I know I'd never get any offer that good unless the car really was junk or something. If it was junk, I don't know if I'd want to drive it.

Why did they raise the time?
A tornado in the snow would be just terrifying XD We're under a severe weather watch right now, and a flood watch too (though I didn't think Illinois could be flooded..). So, I really hope we don't end up with a tornado ;;.

Well, the car has been having some difficulties lately and the heater broke, so hopefully my parents get it fixed before I take it. Yeah, driving a junky car would be no fun unless you really needed it.

I really don't know for certain, I'm not in Drivers Ed util August. All I know is that the time of driving hours went from 50 to I think 100 hours before you can officially get your liscense. Does anyone know how long you need yuor learners permit for though?

Many cities in the US don't have public transportation. I don't know about her, but I know in all of the cities in the US I've lived in, there was no sort of public transportation at all. You had to use your own, and that usually meant having a car. :/
In the last town I lived in I couldn't get anywhere on foot. We were in the housing area, and nothing was in convenient walking distance. Maybe a bike would have worked, but I didn't know how to ride one. I needed a car. I couldn't drive then, and even when I was able to, I was too scared to learn.

This is a time I wish we could all teleport everywhere. That would solve a ton of problems, don't you think? *shot*

Well, it wasn't snowy, it was just really rainy, and I think there was some hail. I mean, I think it's impossible for it to be really cold and there to be a tornado.
The tornado got really close to us though. There were houses nearby that had to be repaired.

Ah... I hope so too; doing repairs can be expensive, I imagine.

I haven't a clue, sadly. D; I don't think my sister had any sort of hour requirement in Kansas though. But then again, she was an adult by the time she started learning to drive.

Yup, it's exactly what Sammi said... public transportation in many parts of the US is non-existent. Besides, the places I need to get to aren't in the same town as my school, so even the buses my school provides for students wouldn't help me at all. So I'm glad I have a car of my own~

That makes sense. Besides, I imagine a bike is cheaper to manage than a car. The only downside is space, but I imagine you won't need it.

You're getting a motorbike? Sounds scary yet fun. I know I couldn't use it; I can't even ride a bike. I'm not going to be on one with a motor if I don't know how to keep my balance. XD
Do you know how to ride it yet?
Yeah, well when I go to do my A levels you're allowed to take a motorbike to school, but not a car or anything. So at least I'd be able to make my own way there rather than catching the bus or getting a lift.

I do eventually want to get a car, though. And motorbikes are fun. My uncle's got a couple and I've had a go on them and stuff at my grandmothers, and I enjoyed it -- the only thing is I'll get wet if it's raining and I wouldn't have much, if any room to carry much stuff around with me.

Only your juniors/seniors can have licenses? o__o In my state, you can get a driver's permit at age 13 at the youngest. Most people get them at 14 though. [A driver's permit is where you can drive with an adult, fyi~] So that means our school parking lot is pretty full of students' cars.

No. I said that I'm not going to buy one anytime soon (the next year or so) and therefore I don't need any advice for it.

No problem. XD I hated them as well. I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one annoyed by them.

My sister has two parakeets in her room. She named one of them Ash, and she often yells at it to shut up. Whenever she does that, I always think she's yelling at me instead. XD; I think her birds only escaped from the cage once. It happened while I was at school last year. I guess when my dad went to clean the cage, he left the door unlatched or something and the birds got out. My grandmother hates animals, so when she saw the bird flying around the living room, she got a little freaked out. Luckily my dad was awake at the time, so he was able to retrieve the birds and put them back in the cage. ><;

Nah, it's okay, Nica. :3

Everything has it's own smartness. At least, every live being. Even trees have "smarts." They can tell when fall comes and they shed their leaves and grow then back when spring comes around.

I can't just believe that happened by accident.

Nica: Yes, only with certain equipment may people see underwater. Other than that, we're quite blind.

Actually, humans are blind in general. In the nighttime, and at certain cases, in the daytime..unbelievably.

Even without the equipment some humans are able to see underwater..such as freaks.

Or..trees don't have enough water and they just start losing their leaves because theres less water in Autumn? X3

This may come a shock, but trees are actually one of the smartest living things when it comes to the environment.

Such as are explained already.

Here's what I really think about: What's going to become of us humans? Will we be actually smart in the future, or even as to making even more retarded decisions?

God only knows.

I think that having character is higher than intellect anyway. We'll be secure enough to live through difficult decisions that have already been caused by ourselves as well as we think.

But what about war? America's president is stupid enough to give lives just to find stupid nuclear weapons.

Yet, there are some human that just won't stop. I guess there is no such thing as world peace after all...

There are hundreds of other problems all over the world, other wars going on that people almost never talk about, sickness, homeless, lots of problems like that. It's rather stupid to think that one day it'll all be gone.

That's Bush's own character. From his traits, the way he thinks and acts is what has him performing all this. It's not about his intelligence. He's bound to know that what he's doing is causing a lot trouble for the people of Iraq. He knows that his men are dying out there. He's even aware that he's gaining bad reputation from his country, and other parts of the world. Knowing this would be common sense for anyone. He's a greedy fool, in my opinion, nothing else to it.

Yes, and there's nothing we can pretty much do about it. It takes one person to harm the world. And when you think about this deeply, the odds aren't really great.

I'm not thinking that it'll be gone someday. The world "problems" will continue to exist and have it's effect on everyone.

I think there will be peace in this world once someone discovers the meaning of life..And then, everyone can all celebrate that they know what to do to achieve the meaning and everyone shall be nice and happy sitting with a cup of tea in a boring little world.

I find it that there's no point in discovering the meaning of life. People will never live if they try to search for what it consists of. For me, I just tell myself to enjoy my time on Earth. Why waste it on something like this?

I heard from a wise people to "live life to the fullest" and I actually agree with that. No point searching for anything if you know it involves just your own life or even risking it, for that matter.

I'm leaning more towards the "there will never be world peace" theory. There will always be on person out there who has to get his own means, and he'll do whatever he can to achieve them. There's always one person who doesn't agree with the other, and they end up fighting.

Of course, that's just me.

And of course, that just may be correct. Like I said, the world "problem" will still exist and take effect on every human. There will always be problems.

That's just what I was getting at. Everybody's got their problems with the world, and most of them end up taking it out in a way that harms somebody.

World peace is an impossible fantasy. Humans are far too advanced to just be able to live in harmony. There will always be people who want to power or money, and will stop at nothing to get it.

The only way for world peace to even be feasible is if -every- single person in the world was a complete equal. And that'd mean equal value and equal power, which, as I mentioned, is impossible.

I don't necessarily agree that he's a "greedy fool." Yeah, I strongly disagree with his actions, but he believes that what he is doing is what is best for Iraq. I think it's more a blinded belief than greed.

I agree with that. It was good at first, but it's dragged on for too long and it needs to stop. I also don't think it's fair the way the media portrays him; they don't shed any good light on the situation, only bad. There *is* some good happening over in Iraq.

I second that. Really it's what the person makes of it. The children of Africa are poor, but they're still happy, right? It's just 'media' wants to focuses on the 'bad' things, since people will pay attention to anything 'bad' happening, hoping it won't happen to them. :\

No, they really aren't happy.

Honestly, don't take what you've got for granted. Sometimes the media exaggerates, but there is a horrible truth the images they show you. Kids die of starvation everyday and AIDS runs rampant. Please don't underestimate the problems there.

But if we don't know what we need to achieve in the future..when we all die, then we may not have done the certain things that enables us to get to a better place. (Referring to heaven)

If they are poor they have less supplies to live a happier life..Poor aint equalling happy.

Good point. But the fact that those unfortunate children are able to show a smile in their faces, whereas some of those who are fortunate don't even show a smile. I guess it's because the unfortunate can only go higher, and aren't ignorant like the fortunate.
