Hey kids. It's been awhile. And when I say awhile, I really mean a long ass fucking time.
New things are happening with the community. Brittany and I are working on something pretty big, so stay tuned.
I haven't been a very good mod to you all lately due to school and some other issues..but i'm back. And I'm sorry for not being here for so long. And I've missed this community and all of you. But now it's all good again.
The community has just been one big mess lately but now it's getting taken care of so now it will be easier to handle. Well that's all I have to say for now.

Love,
Courtney.

P.S. I got my new SoCo track jacket in the mail the other day. Wore it for the first time today.
I'm in loooove with it. Anyone else get one? They're pretty freaking sweet if I do say so myself.

if you DON'T see your username on that list. then i'm sorry but we're taking you off the accepted members list and removing you from the community. you have had TWO WEEKS to submit a picture for the soon to be accepted members page for the community. if you responded to the post but didn't submit a picture, too bad. you lose.
i don't care who the hell you are, how long you've been in the community, if you're a personal friend of mine, etc. we're not going to have a picture of someone on the accepted members page if you're only active every so often.

if you REALLY want to remain in the community, then you are going to have to apply again. NO "IF'S" "ANDS" OR "BUTS." i don't even care. NO EXCUSES.
i'm not kidding around. so take me fucking seriously. because i know most of you don't.

everytime someone new applies,
the first thing i look at

i love to read their reaction.
thats my favorite thing. ever.
whoever came up with that question is amazing.

I WANT EVERYONE TO LISTEN TO ME. KIM (bleedfordays) HAS ALREADY SAID, IF YOU HAVE JOINED AND HAVE NOT POSTED AN APPLICATION THEN YOU NEED TO DO IT. IT'S FRUSTRATING WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO BRING A COMMUNITY BACK FROM THE DEAD AND PEOPLE DON'T FOLLOW RULES AND DON'T RESPECT WHAT MODS SAY. No, we don't own you. We own this community. and what we say goes. IF YOU COMMENT ON AN APPLICATION, AND YOU DIDN'T POST YOUR PICTURE A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO ON THE ACCEPTED MEMBERS LIST THEN YOU'RE BEING BANNED. I DON'T FUCKING CARE IF YOU'RE ALREADY ACCEPTED. YOU'RE GOING TO BE BANNED BECAUSE YOU AREN'T ACTIVE BUT EVERY SO OFTEN..


so suck that.

Have you ever heard the story of Sadako and her thousand paper cranes? Sadako was a real girl who, like Andrew, had Leukemia.

"The paper crane has become an international symbol of peace in recent years as a result of it's connection to the story of a young Japanese girl named Sadako Sasaki born in 1943. Sadako was two years old when the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. As she grew up, Sadako was a strong, courageous and athletic girl. In 1955, at age 11, while practicing for a big race, she became dizzy and fell to the ground. Sadako was diagnosed with Leukemia, "the atom bomb" disease.
Sadako's best friend told her of an old Japanese legend which said that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes would be granted a wish. Sadako hoped that the gods would grant her a wish to get well so that she could run again. She started to work on the paper cranes and completed over 1000 before dying on October 25, 1955 at the age of twelve." http://www.sadako.org/sadakostory.htm

Remembering this story, and knowing how well each project is coming so far, I decided to make a project for Andrew myself. Although Andrew is doing so much better, he’s going to remain with the memory of being diagnosed and treated for Acute Lymphatic Leukemia. As a fan, I think that it’s up to us to show him how proud we are that he got over the disease, and to thank him. Imagine all the hell Andrew has been through this year, but remember also how much he gave. How much money went to the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation from Project Flip Flop? What about projects like Be Positive and 11:11 A.M.?

Without Andrew, these funds wouldn’t have been raised. This year I have donated to dozens upon dozens of charities. Why? Not because I didn’t have sympathy for those who suffer from horrendous diseases before his diagnosis, but because Andrew reminded me of this compassion and he reminded me how important it is to think of others once in a while.

For this, Andrew needs to know that even after his disease is gone, we’re still thinking of him and everyone who continues to fight day after day.

I decided to start a project which I call “1000 Cranes For Andrew” and I’m asking each of you to participate.

You’ll make one (or multiple) paper crane(s) and decorate them in any way you’d like. I encourage you to write messages to Andrew on the cranes; simple things like “I Will Fight” and “It’s Good To Be Alive” work perfectly. You are not, however, limited to this idea. Please be as creative as possible and make as many cranes as you would like.

After making the crane, take a picture of it. It’d be best if you did something nice with your cranes, like hang them from a ceiling so they’re ‘flying’. Unfortunately I’m not able to give out my address here, so for the time being the only way I can receive the pictures is if you have them on your computer and e-mail or IM them to me. If you don’t have a digital camera or scanner, I’m sure a friend would be willing to let you use theirs. Feel free to include a sentence or two that you’d like Andrew to see, but don’t feel obliged to.

Once you send your pictures to me, I’ll print them out (on photo paper, of course) and create a scrapbook of all your cranes. Please understand that the photos or messages cannot be too large, because I would like to have photos of one thousand cranes and I will not be able to fit all of them all the time. I AM however, able to resize pictures so if you’re unsure you have no need to worry. Also, encourage friends to participate. Even if they aren’t familiar with Andrew, I’m sure they’d be willing to help based on the reasoning that this project exists.

DO NOT GET RID OF YOUR CRANES! A short period of time after I send the cranes to Andrew (about two weeks or so) I’ll tell you all to send YOUR cranes to him along with a short note (try to limit yourselves to a page as Andrew will quite possibly be receiving a lot of these).

Please e-mail pictures to xKonstantine777@aol.com or IM pictures and questions to me at PrincessSarri or xKonstantine777. Thank you!

I have already posted this in the Jacks & All Things Andrew community, so please don't kick my ass for asking around. =)

I'm doing a project on a great American for my english class, and I'm researching on Mr. McMahon.

I have facts and stuff on him, like the ones found on AndrewMcMahon.com and from other random websites, but if you have anything thats fun or interesting or something of that extent on him, it would be GREATLY appreciated if you would let me know where I could find this stuff, or post it here or something. I need as much info as possible (it's a big project. =])

extra pictures are good too. haha.

I need to make a soundtrack to his life as well, and this is what I have so far. It would be also greatly appreciated if you think I should add something to this list.
so far I have -

Wild West End -Dire Straits
Time To Move On -Tom Petty
Sleep On Needles-Sondre Lerche
Parker Peterson -Firescape
Levon-Elton John
Let Down-Radiohead
Jackson Canner-Ben Folds Five
God Only Knows-The Beach Boys
Dream-The Everly Brothers
Ding Dong-Nellie McKay
Cupid-Sam Cooke
Caring is Creepy-The shins
Can I Hide-Bikelock
America-Simon & Garfunkel
For me, This is Heaven- Jimmy Eat World
Mr Jones- Counting Crows
Watch the Sky- Something Corporate
Piano Man- Billy Joel

If you could help me out in any way possible it would be, totally amazing.
i figured to post this here to, since, you know, it's socoholics. haha.
THANK YOUU
