Blah Monday

Monday wasn't that bad today, but like always, I find something to complain about. I went to bed at 8 last night and I was still tired getting up at six this morning. In Government we took a quiz, and even though I didn't know what federal, confederate, and unitary governments were, I took educational guesses and I think I managed to get a B, maybe even an A. In Geometry we spent like the whole day doing homework, which was fun. In French I gave a guy the story our group of friends started last year. It was my turn last year but I refused to continue it until another friend gave me the missing pages. The guy whom I gave the story to ended it by saying Korea nuked us all and said we could not change it or alter it at all. Then we got into a whole paradox conversation because I told him he wrote it in pen and that I could just erase it. His conclusion was that we'd all implode. During lunch one of my friends stared at my purse because, I have to admit, it's ugly. But I only use it to carry my lunch. I go to my locker right before lunch and right after lunch so I don't have to lug it around. In Health we had to summarize articles about common sleep problems and caffeine. We had the whole period to do it, so we ended up talking most of the time. After that me and a girl in my science class went to our science teacher to ask about when our research paper was due.
On Thursday in Earth and Space Science we got to pick our research topics. The two that really stood out to me was stellar evolution and astrobiology. I took Earth Science in 6th grade and that was boring, so I'm really looking forward to the space part of this year's science. Astronomy has always really intrigued me. So guessing stellar evolution was the life cycle of stars, I picked astrobiology because I didn't know what it was. After class I went to the teacher to tell her my mom changed her email address. I also asked her what astrobiology was, and she told me it was life "out there". I secretly congratulated myself for picking that topic because the first day of class she told us that she does that for NASA. She told me it was an interesting subject and she could show me some interesting stuff.
When I came home today I took a nap, and had to listen to Torry complain about chips. When dad bought chips, he instantly hid them in the place where I hid the last box of them. So when Torry was grumbling about them, I told him that Dad was the one who hid them. He then told me he was going to search my room, and even called his friend to look for them. Eventually he found them since I hid them behind the couch where I was lounging. I then told Dad I was hiding them in my room and promptly did so. I think it's funny how I can announce to the whole blogosphere that I'm hiding chips in my room and Torry will be the last person to know. I only had science homework to do so I did that right away. Only 4 problems and they were so easy. I figured out a way to get Torry to not turn of the record player and turn on the TV as soon as he gets home. I staked out my ground on the futon with my backpack and put on a Bob Dylan album, and when he came home with Wendy's and asked not very politely to watch TV, I stood my ground and told him I was doing homework. A thing I don't understand is how could he think he deserves to eat the chips my parents buy and yet go out and buy Wendy's.

Win of the Day

Me and mom were volunteering at Smallwood state park today and there were people in the kitchen. They made us lunch; onion pie, curry chicken, and saffron cake. One of the people said the saffron cake was nice and yellow. The other said mellow yellow, and proceeded to whistle mellow yellow for the rest of the day.

It's on!

Well last night I kept turning off Torry's computer because the fan was making the most annoying noise. Once I did knock on his door to ask him, but he didn't respond so I assumed he wouldn't care...much. So now I wake up this morning and find that my mouse is gone. It's a good thing I know a bunch of keyboard shortcuts. But seriously tho. He shouldn't be acting so childish.

One spray of nasal spray per nostril for sinuses, one Zyrtec pill for allergies, and two Advil tablets for pain from braces. No wonder I'm feeling dizzy.

Second Week

When I came home from school I fell asleep until like 6. I am exhausted but feeling much better. A few things that I've noticed that have helped me during the first 2 weeks:

  • Having an upperclassman buddy. I didn't feel as lost as I could have been knowing there was somebody who could help me.
  • Taking bubble baths. Now that Andelle's gone I have a bathroom to myself. While cleaning it out with mom, I found an old Scooby-Doo bubble bath stuff. It said it was mild and long-lasting, but the bubbles were kind of lame so I'm hoping to get soapier stuff to have bubblier baths :D
  • Chocolate. And lots of it. Nuff Said.
  • Having something I brought from home. During the day my motto is "I wanna go home" and I often think of things I'd rather be doing, like sleeping, so I taped a small newspaper article that I thought was funny to the inside of my agenda book. I look at it, think of home, and get back to work.
