Stuff That Happened When I Wasn't High

My Overwelming Genius

1/26/10 07:00 pm - AP Classes

I'm trying to get into AP History, and I seriously hope my GPA doesn't murder my chances of getting in.


Here's what I got:

In the following space please explain why you would like the opportunity to enroll in AP World History at _____________ High School.

My answer:
I would like the chance to enroll in AP World History because of my motivation to learning more about the history of other countries and cultures, as well as my own, and to gain more knowledge and respect about and for them. It is a subject I am deeply intrigued by, and would like to collect as much knowledge and understanding regarding it. I am fascinated with how other cultures and governments deal with the needs and conflicts between their people and nations.


What specific areas of history are you most interested in studying:
I am most interested in the changes of human behavior and opinion when influenced by the government (corruption of government/by government), wars and or any conflict between two nations, and types of government/political/economical systems. In a more specific context, anything pertaining to the 18th century and beyond (French and Russian revolutions, WW11, the Cold War/Soviet Union, Nazism/Fascism, ect.) Although I do enjoy Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, Ancient China, and the Medieval periods.



Although I do have an alternative to that ^ one:

Which one is better? ^


Can anyone give me critique on them?

I really feel like I should go out there and do something active.
Like idk Tai Kwon Do or something. But I'm afraid I'm like too lanky to be able to do anything right.
And if I tried another thing like a sport or something, I would just suck and everybody would hate me lol.
When I run and stuff I just feel like I'm clunkin' around and my limbs are flailing. It kind of sucks.

Plus I'm lazy and wouldn't keep up with it or something. But I feel so...tired....and dead all of the time.
I might just need sleep, but I have always felt like this.

UGH WHY IS LIFE SO HARD.

They thought it was weird, like I expected ahahaa.

12/24/09 02:50 pm - CHRISTMAS

SANTA'S COMIN' TONIGHT TONIGHT



SANTASSS COMINNNN TONIGHTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT


I had no idea what I wanted this year but I eventually ended up making a Christmas list (at like 12:00 at night on a school night..ahaha..go me) with things that would be cool to have.
And handed it to my mom..
SHE WASN'T VERY EXCITED SINCE IT WAS LIKE 12:00...ahahaa.

But yeah, my Christmas will hopefully be the bomb diggity and Shogget wont tear anything apart.


TEEHEE~


I LOVE CHRISTMAS.

12/18/09 10:23 pm - I need to update more frequently so I don't have to do this

Ahahahahaaaaa

So my opinions of my teachers has changed immensely.
I really am hatin' on science because most subjects I find incredibly dry. And I'm pretty sure my science teacher is hatin' on me...ahaha...
I like anatomy and how your body works and shit, but not...cell organelles. I'm sorry but I don't really care that the ribosomes in a cell create proteins. But I apparently do because today I looked at the tiles on the floor of the bathroom and thought "Wow! This looks like a plant cell in interphase!!" and then I dreamt about and animal cell that night...and it was an actual animal cell in my dream.
My grades are actually better than last year, I am proud. I'm still not doing good in math, it's just so complicated sometimes and the worst things for me is remembering the formulas and what to do. I usually end up doing the thing I remember most to everything and failing every single god damn test because I FORGET. I know I should study, I mean I should really study. But it's just gets so fucking hard I get frustrated I end up screwing up anyway and getting everything wrong while studying. My mom and my grandma can't help me, since they aren't good at math either. And I do pay attention, but it's hard BECAUSE I HATE NUMBERS. My thoughts wander off in the middle of it and I end up missing like a chunk of what I am supposed to know.

German is harder this year than last year. I still am a giant German nerd and love it to death. And I have a high grade. Though grammar really stumps me sometimes, and so do stem changes. I HATE STEM CHANGES AHJSDGSHDK.
I love love love social studies, I retain everything like a sponge, it's great. The teacher likes me. I actually feel intelligent in that class.
I like English a lot, except when we get into grammar. I don't think it even matters what language I take. I will always hate grammar. I love analyzing poems and stories. It's my favourite thing. I do raise my hand a lot without feeling uncomfortable in this class. My English teacher has pretty good taste in books and things too.
Tech is fun. I like to make stuff....not for the purpose of getting it to better than everyone else, just because I like to create things.

Orchestra is fun and I am getting along with my teacher better.

But.
I need to learn to go to bed. I have inherited my sister's computer, but that's really not the issue. When I go into my room to sleep, I draw for an hour. I usually end up going to bed around 11:30 to 12:00. That's not healthy when I have to wake up at 6 am. But as a result of my nocturnal (ok barely) behavior, I have improved in drawing.

The weekends are great. My sister comes home and we hang out. It's pretty damn fun.
In school, I have a shitload of friends. Probably more than I have ever had. I have kept my old ones, kept my even older ones, made friends with acquaintances, and made new friends in general. So I have people to talk to and I feel good.

FRIENDS

STOP RUBBING IT IN YOU DICK

11/15/09 09:38 am - Halloween

So I invited a few friends over for Halloween and we had some good times, man.
We went trick or treating AND I TOTALLY DIDN'T COSPLAY FOR HALLOWEEN SHUT UP BITCH YOU DON'T KNOW ME
Ok I did


and


I am proud.
Ok not really.
But it was fun. We got some candies, even though it rained cats and shoggets.
In which, we got no trick or treaters what so ever. But that's okay because HELL more candy for myself.

And I still can't believe that so many people jipped out on HALLOWEEN because it was raining.
Crazy stuff.
I got a really huge coffee chocolate bar thing, damn you must be crazy to give trick or treaters such big things.
My shogget is really cute and stuff. He wanted candy, but most of it is chocolate so none for shogget.
Which really got annoying after a while PEOPLE HAVE SOME VARIETY. Not everyone wants Reeses, Butterfingers, and Hershey bars for Halloween.
Not that I dislike them, I just get sick of chocolate and super sweet stuff really fast.
My aunt also had her child two days after my friend's sister had her child.

We


are



totally




connected.

10/25/09 12:38 am - TL;DR LIFE DUMP

 I'm not dead, I swear. 
Since I'm lazy and I guess WAY TO BUSY WITH MY ~LIFE~ I haven't updated in forever.
 

WE WILL START WITH MY 






FEELINGS

Ok, so in the beginning in the year I was all "crawwwwwwwling in my skinnnnnnnnnnnnnn" because I felt like I had no friends in my classes.
One of my best friends, who I had a lot of classes with last year I barely see now. I only have 2 classes with her, one where we can't even talk to each other. I see her in the hallway a lot because our routes are alike, it's not so bad. My other best friend is in the same house (think Harry Potter) as me, and I see her in my Home base and at lunch, less than my other friend, but our lockers are right near one another. It's all good.
My other friend, I NEVER SEE HER AND I MISS HER ;--; BABY COME BACK. It's like someone took half of my soul awayyyy. And my other friend is the same. ;--;
I have actually been reunited with a bunch of old friends, who I haven't been able to talk to in two years, which is good. One of them, I used to be really good friends with..I just don't like her as much anymore. She is just kind of "whatever" towards me. I mean she will talk to me, but it's not welcoming like my other friends. I also have classes with people who were just kind of acquaintances before, but now I can work on my relationships to make us closer. 
I have actually made some new almost friends, I'm trying to get friendly with people, but keep my personality unaffected. 
Ehh, I don't feel as confident as I did last year. Mainly because to of my most confident friends who brought me out, are not with me as much.
I always think of how fun last year was and I kind of want it to be like last year. 
Two of my ancient friends, these guys are like 6 years ago, are now in my classes. But they are kind of...I guess....I can't really...describe them.
Like the kids that who you shouldn't hang out with, that everybody you shouldn't hang out with hangs out with them.
They are cocks, ok.
One of them actually talked to me online before school and said we needed to hang out, but she really isn't showing it IRL. She has kind of been indifferent to me when she is around a certain friend of hers, actually she can be really..nasty around that friend. I think she is just influenced a lot around her, because she has been nice to me alone. 
The other girl talks to me like she is still my friend, so that makes me happy. 


And since I got myself a computer, I haven't been drawing as much. Which is bad. I need to improve, very badly. BUT my writing is improving since I can type when I am bored. I am trying to make sure I draw at least one person a day to keep up my practice.


Friends aside, my teachers are really great this year. There isn't anything bad I can really say about any one of them.


I also have people in my lesson group this year. I was so thrilled. 
OK JUST THINK
please just think
about how weird it feels to be in a small cramped room, alone, with your dorky, 30 something year old, male, Orchestra teacher, who kind of hates you.
IT'S NOT FUN. 
I had to do this for 1 and a half years. Half of the Viola's quit, so I was alone. ACTUALLY only one quit at first, who was my friend. Now a bitch. She ditched me. And the other kid was just a delinquent, so he didn't come at all.
But my Orchestra teacher is actually starting to like me now, he kind of...jokes with me and my friend....


....
yeah.
My friend, Marissa and I have this thing where we would say "I believe in you!!!" and he said it one day to us...both..at different times he saw us.
OK.

HEY GUESS WHAT
I was caught by a fire drill with my pants off  a few days ago.
It was great. I was changing in the locker room and BAM, "OH MY GODDDDDD I DON'T HAVE ANY  PANTS ON JSDAHSDSHADSUD!!!!1" and so I threw them on, shoved all my shit into my locker, and ran to the gym. Shoeless. 
And I found out that my pants were backward. 
I got yelled at. 
My friends were laughing at me.
Those were good times, maaaaan.

Also, GUESS WHAT
I am ACE at opening my locker now, it's great. It turns out that I just wasn't turning the lock enough before I did my combo.
/high five, man!

The Halloween dance thing at my school was so fun. ;A;
I would show a picture, but...I look disgusting in all but one.
And I'm too lazy to put it in here.
aahaha.
Also, the urge to beat the shit out of people I don't like has risen. I just am filled with this burning rage now and not embarrassment.
NOT LIKE, JUST BECAUSE I HATE THEM, THOUGH. Only if it's provoked.
I think you can blame that on Marissa...
I JUST WANT TO FEEL HARDCORE AGAIN. ;--;
/sob.
