Oak Park, Il blog related: Back to school

I am back in school for the time being taking about two classes or I have a full-time schedule for the next two terms, this way I can get done with school get the Masters degree in line with getting done with Oak Park, IL tons of writing means I will probably spend more time in front of the computer instead of outside whiffing in the smells of dog shit and pompous attitudes in the great outdoors.

I might use the extra money and or time to get myself ready for another move and update my furniture to things that are more functional and durable. This way it will not break down either inside just be used or during a move like my four-drawer dresser from Ikea. The movers just turned that thing from a thing of beauty to Frankenstein’s monster in less than a couple of hours. Mind you I waxed and shined that thing for a good 8 months and was very careful in using it.

Now one of the drawers’ outer face is scratched and another drawer is just smashed to pieces. That is why I am dipping into my drinking fund to get it right this time, ha-ha I guess I am “growing up” but I just want to make sure that I am not doubling my expenses just to make the apartment look cute in such a shitty suburb. With that in mind, i am going to max out on Bed Bath and Beyond coupons on the sturdy shit, instead of on candles.

I already took the advice of some of my buddies and looked into Ethan Allen (2k for a dresser!) but I am not that interested in that type of investment unless I am certain I am staying in the state. The amount of taxes that are going into effect especially very soon, like getting a house or a condo less of a sure thing than ever.

Therefore, keeping my head down and getting back into the swing of writing for school to finish that up and also to get back in practice of writing for the blog will be more of my focus …well, unless there is a two for one or free drinks option somewhere. Then I will happily fall off the wagon. Toodles.

My new tape recorder/converter to mp3 is keeping me out of trouble in Oak park, IL

I am sitting here with my new tape recorder it translates the music to a mp3. It gives me something to focus on when coming back home to Oak Park, Il the traffic drives me nuts as is, and the neighbors that want to be my friend or get in my personal business to the point of giving “advice” to me but I really don’t care. So, with this thing, since I am not in school I am either enjoy summer activities, being at work or Some shit.

Therefore, now I got this as a project I have a “go to” to get out of tons of dumb shit. Old lady lectures, dumb social engagements or just plain ass wasting time like a dumbass. The chaos of the village can really depress the shit out of you to the point you are in a rut and you cannot do anything or accomplish crap.

This place is simply demoralizing lol Luckily there are other things to do in the area but Since I rather not spend my rent money on keeping myself entertained I got this thing to transfer old mix tapes to mp3s, old lectures from School to tapes that were made by family and friends.

I rather keep busy and out of trouble instead of being on the mean streets of Oak Park Il navigating too small for traffic streets and riding slowly behind little old ladies who cannot travel the speed limit if their lives depended on it. Seriously. This new project is an overwhelming or going to overtake what I can do for the blog.

Also on a side note, I already have a bunch of Halloween themed posts ready for the month of October ready. Scheduled and ready to post I am also working on wallpapers for that holiday for the blog and my FB account. I get tired of the same old shit that is supposed to be for kids only here in Oak Park, Il

Hence I am thinking about maybe going or having a party during the Halloween week/weekend. I am not really sure because I am taking a full schedule to get done with school. I start the fall 2017 term in two days so I want everything to go smoothly. Hopefully, without my new old ass neighbor being busy, I can get this all done without a lot of interruptions but alas that is Oak Park, Il full of shenanigans ready to screw your world up.

New teacher, new class hopefully more time for teh Oak Park, IL blog

Hopefully, with my new teacher, I will have more time for the Oak Park, Il blog the constant rewrites I had to do for the last class was insane. All I have to say that when I complete the program I am dusting her ass in this blog. That teacher was like the self-important people here in Oak park, Il the world is a positive place so long as it revolves around them and nothing else.

As long as everyone conforms to what they want, for me it was the only time I could escape from Oak Park, Il was when I went drinking recently with my girls in Chicago (Lakeview) or when I go to work. And the latter I am still dealing with whiny bitches who try to force you into a mold of what they believe you should be and nothing else.

So much for America and being American, an individual all that in this village and in that class is not wanted nor required to meet “standards” oh I am so glad to be free and hopefully I will be free of this hellhole too.

Spring term nearly over so I will be able to focus more on the blog.

Omg I have been so busy writing rewriting and re-rewriting stuff for my first class of my spring term it is ridiculous the amount of time And effort that I have put in this class is enormous I have actually worked my Grammarly program overtime to get my grade an A of course. But the constant misdirection, double talk and retaliation from this instructor was two times the amount of crazy shit that I usually deal with on a daily basis in Oak Park, at work, getting laid, or finding some cool ass shit to wear.

The effort spent was like trying to get Head for Pete’s sake, damn I just said “Pete’s sake”! But it was a fucking lot of teeth pulling babying and outsmarting that usually, you don’t Have to do unless you playing a role on “homeland” the television series or trying to make sure yo ass don’t get fired for doing stupid shit like in the movie “Friday”.

This instructor was nearly impossible to please and difficult to understand. I will take print screens of most of the Crazy shit I dealt with including a nut job fellow student who worked at a dental office I would never go into, cause the chick is Cray cray But I need to hold off until I am out of the program this fall to talk shit. Crazy fucking bitch. Wooo glad I’m done. Fuck that crazy bitch where the sun doesn’t shine!

Writing for Oak Park, IL blog

It has been hard to write for the blog, work at the job, wash my ass, eat properly, and do schoolwork. It is the schoolwork that is the problem I have one of these passive aggressive teachers who takes offense when you ask questions to clarify about their lecture, or discussion points. When you got Graduate assistants dropping the class, and other older students shaking their heads when they leave the class, you know that this instructor is a clusterfuck. They try to get us to do group work in the class, and I wonder what age does this methodology stop being in play? Because I am an adult and I deal with enough irresponsible adults leaving their dog’s shit in my apartment building’s courtyard without picking it up, now I got to deal with picking up the slack of grown adults to make sure my grade is okay.

Then the instructor freaks out doing all their reminder shit involving the entire group like I did my part of the work and turned it to the rest of the group and the instructor so they know I completed my group work portion. I truly do not understand why the instructor adds me into this shit when my work is on a doctorate level than the graduate level we are currently in. Half of my fellow students, cannot even get the assignments in on time, nor, write more than two pages for major assignments. Truly with this shit going on I come home turn on the Netflix, read the assigned text and write my shit for the next assignment.

I believe that if I do this I will have enough time to cover my ass when my fellow students do stupid shit. Yeah, it is called time management something that my neighbors upstairs have no idea about when playing with their dog at 11:27 pm at night. I never had this type of trouble until I moved into Oak Park, IL bar none, it is like this fucking place is cursed, or spat upon by the heavens above. Probably because of all the dog shit.

New YouTube playlist:“TP’s homework music”

Dudes, I have been stuck with homework up the ass this holiday season and the weather sucks so I had to create a YouTube playlist to keep my energy up for my homework, various pre-holiday activities and to keep my mind off the foolish that is Oak Park, IL or when I come from the laundry after I clean dog shit off my shoes.

Yes, I cleaned that GOD DAMN dog shit off in the laundry area sink I figure the same motherfuckers who leave their dog’s shit out on the sidewalk are the same ones who put their dog’s doggy beds in the building’s general public washing machines. Nasty fucks so now they can deal with their dog’s shit in the sink too!

Anyway, I made my cool and hyperactive playlist with 70’s to today’s music from a large pool of different artists and genres and I call it, “TP’s homework music” if you want to try it out this is the playlist’s link:

Oak Park River Forest High School Pool Referendum D220 Committee, yet again.

 Try, try, try and try fucking again, freaking greedy dipshit inbred idiots, obviously the people who brought you the stupidity of the Vote D200 and stupid pool referendum all trying to bring you a sequel of bullshit. Because they think you did not understand what they were trying to sell you the first time. No, more than half the village of Oak Park, IL smelled the bullshit and voted no, but that’s not stopping this committee of greedy idiots. They make the excuse they are trying to build area for technology to meet the demands of a “virtual learning opportunities” then why they need a fucking pool? Give these kids a bunch of iPads and call it a day.

Even though this board of morons is opening the issue to the public for discussion their efforts in the past were not successful so what makes them think that this time will be different? Although they are bringing one new person in, “new blood” but it really does not matter if the board is still stuck with the majority of idiots who have done constant committee on this thing and the end result is still the same.

At this point it looks like one the board is filled with sore losers, second there is something obviously corrupt or “rotten in Denmark” that they are trying to push this issue as hard as they are, and third if they did not accept the vote of the referendum on Nov 8th then what says they will listen to their dissenters during the outreach process.

But that’s Oak Park, Il for you, they do not care what anyone else thinks or says (as obvious by the comments section of the article below), they will do what they want and use your tax dollars to do it! It’s like getting a sexual disease when you don’t use condoms you keep going RAW you keep on and keep on, the end result is going to be negative. The same thing here with the 200 vote popping up again, they keep on and the situation will be negative as well.

Here is the article regarding the D200 failed pool and the new committee:

RE: Concordia University Chicago Employee Reviews On Indeed.com

Concordia University Chicago Employee Reviews On Indeed.com is an interesting post from one of my friends on Google Plus, regarding one of the institutions in the area and how they are presented on Indeed.com. Since it is in River Forest, Il and that village with Oak Park, IL share a community bond I decided to post it on here.

For your viewing pleasure:

It is pretty hilarious and in the same vein of commentary that I have on my blog about Oak Park, IL. This post talks about the negative reviews of Concordia University Chicago and how their negative atmosphere can affect students and how it already affects its employees, sound familiar?

(((cough cough))) Oak Park, IL (((cough cough)))

Oak Park, IL OPRFHS Sexual assault pt 2

Since there is no help coming from the Oak Park police department who marginalized a reported sexual assault that happened back in August, tired of the runaround one of the students got active and posted a petition on Change.org to address the issue. This just brings to light more allegations of sexual misconduct which who knows if they have been addressed by The Oak Park Police Department, as with my case with my crazy neighbor. It seems that the OPPD do not take such things seriously, maybe the petition on Change.org will bring create an atmosphere of professionalism from the Oak Park Police Department. Because seriously kids raping kids is just terrible and even if there is an allegation no matter how slim there should be some time of increased attention to this issue.

Even the local “newspapers” her raise questions about the creation of a rape culture at the high school, and as with any resident in Oak Park, Il it makes one wonder how long has this been going on? If we know that there were at least “several” other offenders involved with this allegation why are they still allowed to go to school with other potential victims? With the other allegations, what has happened with those offenders are they still involved with Oak Park River Forest High School?

Also if the school is waiting for the Police Department to complete their investigation how are they handling the integration of these offenders into the general student population at the school? What new methods or procedures is the school going to put into place to protect future victims of sexual assault in the future? It seems to me that both entities (OPPD and OPRFHS) are to blame in keeping this culture continuing, not to mention the offenders involved. And the kids are only going to follow the direction of the grownups and those who are in charge and deliver out the consequences of their actions if there are no immediate consequences then why should they worry or change? So if Oak Park, Il is interested in creating a bunch of rapists they are doing a good job! Ha! Oak Park, IL created cul da secs decades ago because they feared the crime from the Austin area spilling into their little community, probably because they wanted to create a culture of veil on their own!

Here is the article from the local newspaper that brings up more questions regarding this incident:

Here is the Change.org petition sign off against the rape culture that the Oak Park River Forest High School is inept in protecting and the Oak Park Police Department is slow to putting an end to:

Oak Park, IL OPRFHS Sexual assault pt 1

So from what I understand these “athletes” trespassed upon the wrestling coach’s property with the victim and without the property owner’s knowledge accessed the liquor which lead to the sexual assault; and the only person penalized here is the coach? The incident was reported on August 31st but only a week or two ago was the parents of the school notified about the incident.

Plus, the school still has the majority of the athletes involved in the assault still in school? Why? Because as stated on Channel 5 news that the Oak Park River Forest High School is waiting on the Oak Park Police Department to conclude their investigation, but then why is the coach suspended? Why does he get immediate punishment what details or involvement to this event does the school know about that has not been told to the parents, student or the general public?

You cannot just put employees on suspension unless there is ample reason to do so, there are so many facts missing here it seems that the Oak Park River Forest High School is trying to deflect this issue or just aim people towards a convenient scapegoat. But how does suspending the coach or stopping the athletes competing in wrestling solve the main issue of this rape culture? It doesn’t it only sweeps the problem underneath the rug, by putting the spotlight on something else or in this case someone else to keep the blame being placing on the school. And maybe it should be placed upon the school. Especially since the school is more involved to keeping everything status quo with no regard for the safety of its students.

Here is the article that discusses further the incident and the suspension of the wrestling coach:
