leesville

I'll be on tumblr all day just in case I leave tomorrow!

I might go to Leesville, LA. with my uncle to pick up my aunt and there’s no computers for me to get on. Well, at my Uncle Charles house but he’s mean and there’s no use in bringing my wifi connector to even try to using my phone’s internet because the service is super low in that country town =[

But I still love going there lol

3 kids at my schools middle school division got expelled for going on a racist rant, filming it, and putting it on Instagram. The school is now on the local news and people are afraid it'll become national. Just look up Leesville Road Middle.
