going to bed early
before midnight! i’m happy. i was really tired today (heheh i took a nap after i came home) and so i want to get a lot of sleep tomorrow. plus, it’s block day. math, bio, and choir… pretty good day. and it’s gonna be warm tomorrow! i’m happy about that too.
yesterday after dinner we went out for frozen yogurt at yougurtland. today after dinner we went to baskin robbin’s for ice cream. i like this trend.

my confession yesterday was lame. so here's a...
i own a snuggie. in fact, my family owns FOUR snuggies. no, i didn’t buy them. that’d be my dad, the online shopaholic. but we’ve got four of them, all green. they’re kind of awesome.
i was telling my parents about school, and how in amlith we are reading a lot of puritan writing. in class we decided they were scared, angry, and had a lot of flaws in their logic. my mom says, “maybe now you can use that knowledge to help understand the tea baggers better.” she meant tea party-ers. but that’s not what she said. she had no idea why i burst out laughing.
i just deleted my farmville.
that’s right, endless hours during freshman year spent cultivating my corn or apples or milking my cows all for naught. i stopped playing last november… and the gift requests from my parents and cousin were driving me insane. so i’ve done it. i’ve deleted it. it’s gone, there’s no going back.
i can speak puritan

icygirl: I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. It’s impossible to put down.
today i was waiting to get picked up after 6th period with peggy. we were talking about french and the new french teacher, and then she wanted to show me some stuff she got a few days ago. she had these little pencils and an eraser that were shaped like little ramen cups. they were pretty cute, and apparently they were really popular brands of noodles. we were standing near this group of freshmen...
go away, chem
i took bio ap instead for a reason. i know you’re jealous, but you’re just going to have to wait your turn.
i love break n bakes
you think, “i want some cookies,” and 20 minutes later you’ve got a plate full of fresh-baked cookies.
day ten: a confession
well my confession is that i just realized i completely failed my biology quiz. maybe next time i should read the chapter, not just skim it. but you know, that’s what the point of the beginning of the school year is for, to make mistakes and learn from them. my mistake is that i thought i could use my chem knowledge to get me through it, but i was wrong. i got some of them right, of course,...

facebook is trying to convice all my friends that...
i don’t need any help doing that. i can do that perfectly well on my own. i was chatting with my friend and he asked me whether i thought this link was spam because it was sent to him by a friend who he hadn’t talked to in a while. i opened the link, and foolishly signed into facebook because it had logged me out. then ten minutes later, i started sending chats. to 25 people. 25...
lunch bag odyssey
today, i brought a sandwich to school to eat for lunch, and some tangerines for brunch. the past few days i’d kept my sandwiches in my backpack and then had gotten squished, so i decided i’d put it in a separate bag today. i came into first period lit with mrs. rocha, and i put it under my desk with my backpack. i remember thinking sometime during that class, “i wonder which...

days 6 and 7... i forgot yesterday.

demonstrating the effectiveness of translators
translate: “how much woow would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?” into japanese. then copy-paste that back into the translate box, and translate it back into english.
i don't remember being that little
so today was the lawson ice cream social. i went because my parents ordered a pizza, and i’m not going to pass up pizza. but we went, and it was kind of funny because i saw all of my old teachers. all the kids looked so young. i don’t remember being that young in middle school. although most of those 6th graders are older than i was in 6th grade, they sure looked young. and the 8th...

justin bieber: except a cool version →
okay so my gtalk status at this moment (probably won’t be if your reading this later in the day) is that i’m listening to justin bieber. no, i haven’t gone to to dark side. i still think he sounds like natasha bedingfield. but this may be the coolest thing anyone has ever done to justin bieber. i hadn’t heard the normal song before so i listened to it first, and if you...
this year is going to kick my butt
seriously. from two chapters of notes (bio and apush) in one afternoon, the second afternoon of school no less, to quizzes on books i’ve not seen in a month OR i haven’t had time to finish (hehehe but everyone knows nothing happens in the last few pages of grapes that’s not on sparknotes…) and inclass essays impending and biology tests the same day (MORE inclass...
day five: six things you wish you'd never done
signed up for two ap classes and two honors classes given up playing soccer, ice skating, and dancing wasted so much time feeling sorry for myself procrastinated so much over the summer and in general played that game in elementary school that got me in so much trouble failed at “live with no regrets”
day four: seven things that cross your mind a lot
i should really read that. how the heck am i going to survive junior year? i know i walked into this room for a reason…too bad i can’t remember. stupid cat, stop eating my hair bands. i’m worried that i worry too much. i should really get off the computer. i wonder who’s online?
i just thought this was pretty dang cool
so you know how we have a test on thursday in biology on chapter one? well i decided to get a head start and try and stunt my procrastination so i read the chapter. and it was fine, took me about an hour and a half (my mind would start to wander… then i’d realized i didn’t remember a word of the last page). after, i thought it would be fun to look at the cd. i played...
day three: eight ways to win your heart
smile. happy people are more attractive, i’m sure there’s some statistic to back that up. but anyway, i like people who smile. open doors for me. cheesy things like that are cute, i think. make me laugh. and laugh at my jokes. or, i guess, tell me when they fall flat. talk to me. i’ll never like you if i never speak to you. give me some clues if you like me. don’t make...
i’m done with founding brothers. i read the whole thing, no skimming, no nothing. and i have 8 double-sided pages of notes. my plan for the rest of the evening? read grapes of wrath as long as i can, read the sparknotes for what i can’t finish, and finish reading the book tomorrow after school. (shudder… school.) but actually, i’m kind of not dreading school so much...
so i think i'm going to go read now
284 pages of grapes of wrath. 100 pages of founding brothers. worried? nahh.
day two: nine things about yourself
i hate thinking of things to describe myself with… like which animal are you most like? or pick one adjective to describe yourself. someday i aspire to live in another country, live in a big city, and live near the ocean. but not necessarily at the same time. i really want to visit africa. maybe morocco or south africa, or maybe madagascar. i don’t know. just somewhere in africa. i...
day one: ten things you want to say to ten people...
that’s right, i’m starting it right now. just so that i won’t forget. you’re kind of awesome. i’m glad you’re there for me to talk to. you amuse me, you anger me, you intrigue me, you make me happy every time i talk to you, so thanks. you mean more to me than you know, and you’ve quickly become so important in my life. you’re another person whose...
i kind of love these things... but i've never...

trying to talk about a situation you’re not supposed to talk about is difficult. but i, being who i am, am going to try.

that makes sense, right? i have liked more than i post. celebration? i don’t know. it’s just an observation. you don’t have to feel like i’m stalking you if i like everything, i just do that a lot. anyway.

i just adopted a word
veteratorian. it means: subtle. i will now veteratorianly slip this word into my vocabulary.
today, i have experienced a nightmare. for real.
so we went to olarn, that thai place near yogurtland and mchart’s and daiso. we were sitting there, eating out noodles and coconut soup, and my back was to the window. my mom said, “hey isn’t that—” and i turned around. and guess who showed up? that’s right. mr. timmreck. oh. my. goodness. so i ducked down as he walked by, and finished my dinner. then we...
grapes of wrath is going to kill me
i’m on page 120. and i just got to the part about highway 66. and now i have the song “route 66” playing in my head. chuck berry and john steinbeck, you’re going to drive me insane.
shruthig asked: We didn't have Tino Crew. Just ASB helping out. Because we only had one person leading, right? And they had white shirts. I remember.
oh and i got a new couch
it’s brown. and i like it. on the outside two seats, it’s got recliners, which is pretty awesome. we got it about a week ago from furniture 2000. you know, that place that’s always one furniture store or another, and always going out of buisness? well it’s going out of business (again) so we went a bought a couch to replace our old couch, which was older than me. anyway,...
i'm so curious now
about who’s going to be in my classes. because of course we’ve got the onofficial schedule, but who knows when there are two teachers teaching at the same time? for example, first period am lit h? so many people have said they’ve got that with me that the chances of all of them having it is so slim. there’s definitely more than one am lit h class 1st period. some of them i...
THE WAR HAS BEEN WON.
victory is mine. i passed the french exams with 3% to spare. i am so glad. you know, after all the stress i went through in the past three weeks, junior year’s going to be a breeze. or at least i hope. on to grapes of wrath, founding brothers, book reports, and merit reading write-ups. plus cleaning my room. but for now, i’m going to bask in my glory. dang, am i glad i passed.
in the war against french, i have won the battle
but not yet the war. i’m done, that’s right, DONE, with all the packets, petit nicolases, and current events. i could stop now and have everything done. i’m not going to, of course, because i need to study like heck. i can’t remember which verb tense is which and i don’t know all the vocabulary, but i can do this. i think. i hope.
