There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.

Elie Wiesel
 
Protest away, but I take sides with GHS for enforcing exposed bellies, super short skirts and shorts and underwear that should be just that. Grow up, and realize that just because you don’t mind exposing body parts, others may want to concentrate on other things – like learning. After school, you can bare it all…it’s not just about you

As far as impeding self expression – the true meaning of creativity is having a mind that can maneuver within confines to find solutions….try expressing yourselves with true style, not baring your skin. Although you may be comfortable wearing less, the rest of the world may not want to see it….and please admit that part of it is shock value – not true expression.
 

The school’s dress code calls for students to dress “within reasonable limits so that their dress does not jeopardize the health or safety of the wearers or others, or cause distraction or disruption of the educational process as determined by the administration.” It adds that the school has “the right to determine what constitutes dress that is disruptive to the educational climate or process.”

45 OF THE ACRES DESIGNATED FOREST UNDER CT PUBLIC ACT 490 
Q: What is Public Act 490 and Use Value Assessment?
A: Public Act 490 is Connecticut’s law (Connecticut General Statutes Sections 12-107a through 107-f) that allows your farm, forest, or open space land to be assessed at its use value rather than its fair market or highest and best use value (as determined by the property’s most recent “fair market value” revaluation) for purposes of local property taxation. Without the lower use value assessment, most landowners would have to sell the land because they would not be able to afford the property taxes on farm, forest, or open space land.
Taxes – $156.116

In real estate, you hear a lot about staging your home, taking away the clutter, but clutter is also a huge cause of stress in everyday life – so get rid of it! 

According to a recent Huffington Post survey:

“Home organization is one of the most universal stress triggers, according to a recent online survey. Eighty-four percent of recently stressed Americans say they worry that their home isn’t clean or organized enough, and within that group, 55 percent called it out as a source of recent stress.

Among all those who experienced some level of stress about home organization, nearly a third expressed being very or extremely stressed by their homes. And it wasn’t just a stressor for women: 81 percent of men and 87 percent of women who reported experiencing anxiety over home upkeep.”
And if you are selling your home, you will sell it more quickly. People looking to buy a home want the ease of envisioning their belongings in the home, not yours. If you’re looking to stay in your home, release and be happy : – )
