Mood: thoughtful.
I'm thinking of switching to a new livejournal. I've already got an account set up, so all I have to do is add the appropriate people to my friends list and type the first entry.
I'm still undecided, but I should have a plan in a few hours...I'll let you all know then. ^_^

Mood: sick.
Cha...really enjoying my day of so far, but am dreading the fact that I have homework later. Studying for science and health tests, and completing 28 algebra problems, to be exact. ^_^;
Oh well...it could be worse. It shouldn't take me more than an hour and a half, anyway.
My cold is a bit better, but I'm still coughing, sneezing, and having trouble breathing. Okay...so maybe it's not that much better, after all. 0_x
And now, since I haven't done one in a while, a quiz! ^^

Take this quiz!

First, an important announcement :

I love this song, and I love Rammstein.

Ehem...yes. ^^; Now onto the actual entry....

Today was exhausting. Just plain exhausting. I'm feeling much better now, but the day itself sucked.
It started off okay, but during first period this morning, I just start sneezing. Pretty soon I'm sniffling, my eyes are watering, and it's becoming very difficult to even breathe. It continues throughout the whole day, and I used up an entire package of tissues. Needless to say, that was enough to make my day miserable. But, it only got worse... X_x
After I got out of sixth period, before I went home, I went to the restroom. I couldn't have been in there more than 5 minutes, but when I got out, I found that all the halls were blocked off by gates. I had no earthly idea how to get out. X.X
I asked around for a while, and I finally found this teacher, who I asked for help. The conversation went like this...

Me : Excuse me...could you tell me how to get out of here?
Her : What do you mean?
Me : The hallways...they're all...locked up. *motions towards the hallway*
Her : *in a very snippy tone* What do you mean?! I can't read your mind, you know!
Me : *timid* I'm sorry...I...I mean...*motions again* look at the halls. I just need to know how to get out of here.
Her : If you'll just go to the office, they'll tell you.
Me : I'm sorry...I...okay. *sigh*

I then proceed to wander around for a few more moments until I finally find a way out myself. The whole time, the only thought going through my mind was : You don't have to be a mind reader, you rude old bitch, you just have to tell me where I'm going.
Really, was that even nescessary? I simply asked her, very politely might I add, a question. Then, for no reason at all, she gets snippy and attiude-ish with me, as if I had just insulted her. X_x
*sigh* My brother was the one picking me up today, and he asked me why I was so upset (I didn't know anyone could tell...I'm just an open book, I guess). It took me a few seconds, but I finally told him the whole thing.
He was extremely ticked off. In fact, he was more upset than my mother. O_o; I guess I should be grateful that he's so protective of me. ^^
On the bright side of it all, because of this cold, I get another day off tomorrow! (*squeeeee!*) ^____^

Mood: calm.
So...tired. X_x I don't think I'm even going to bother removing my makeup tonight...just sleep.
Speaking of makeup, does anyone use Clinique? I'm considering buying some tomorrow, but I've heard it's pricey, and I want to make sure I'm getting what I pay for.
I'm currently using Almay, but it isn't doing much or me, I'm sorry to say. ^^;

In other news, I am feeling a bit better.
I think that little outburst earlier tonight was just an explosion of all the negative feelings I've kept shut in these past few weeks. I'm always trying to be so optimistic, which isn't a bad thing in the least, but I might not be doing it in a very healthy way. You see, my way of being optimistic...is just to ignore all negative feelings and aspects of a situation. That really doesn't sound like the right way to me, but I don't know how else to do it. :/

Subject:I hate these titles. No more titles. Die, titles,die! >:D
Time:9:26 pm.
Mood: crushed.
*sigh* The weekend really isn't long enough. I can't believe tomorrow is Sunday. School,its'...it's just too much stress to pack into five straight days. They should do a "go-day off-go-day off" system. But noooo, that would just be easy, wouldn't it?
Yeah, I'm in a ticked off mood for the first time in a while tonight. Well...not really ticked off, just exhausted. I'm beginning to question if this homeschool-to-public switch was really even worth it.
I don't think it is. Now I see why I was so happy about being homeschooled in the first place...relatively stress-free, drama-free, peace-filled days.
I promised myself I would never swear again...but I want to so badly. I could just mutter "f*ck" under my breath a thousand times right now. I need to, but I can't. Can't let the stress get to me...musn't let it...
Oh my, I really do need another weekend, and I'm afraid that I just can't wait another six days for it...*sighx1000*

Time:7:46 pm.
Mood: groggy.
Forget the + symbol and bold print, I'll just be random. Not too random, though, so don't worry. If you pay close attention, you should be able to follow along quite nicely. ^_^

In English today, this cute, incredibly short girl, Casey, was having a very...bad day, I guess. O_o;
She first stormed into the classroom, threw her coat and bookbag against the wall, and then proceeded to throw variations of the word "f*ck", and the phrase "backstabbing whore" around very loosely. 0_0;
From what I can gather, a former friend of hers was asked out by a guy she loved (loved enough to slash her wrist for, apparently), and the friend said yes.
She spent the rest of period crying, and when I saw her with mascara running down her face, using her coat to wipe away the tears, I just had to offer her a tissue. I felt so sorry for her. ;_;

I have successfully avoided Chris for the past two days, and he really hasn't bothered me much at all. Thank goodness. In Algebra today, he asked me if I was mad at him or something, and instead of replying the way I truly wanted to ("No, I just find you creepy and disgusting, now leave me the hell alone"), I just said "No, of course not, why would I be mad at you?", and continued to be coolly polite to him, much as one would be to an annoying stranger. I really hope he gets over his little crush on me, because I'm not interested in him in the least, and the whole situation is really bothering me.

I got transferred to different Health and Physical Science classes today. I don't have a problem with that, because both teachers seem very nice, as do the students. Jenna R. is even in my Science class! *squeak* ^-^

The week was turbulent, today was wonderful, and I'm ready for a break. Thank God for weekends. *sigh*

Ja! ^_^

Subject:Woohoo! I think...
Time:10:56 am.
Mood: happy.
Well, in case you haven't noticed, I'm not in school...I should be, but I'm not. Why, you ask?
You can contribute this little fluke to me and an alarm clock. Around 5:00 am this morning, my dad woke me up to tell the alarm was going off. I told him to just shut it off (twice, before he finally did), and just continued to lay in bed. I was planning to get up at about 5:30, but I just passed out again, only to wake up at 7:44, 16 minutes before school starts. 16 minutes. It takes 16 minutes just to get to that school, and I was still in my pajamas. Sooo, mom just let me have the day off, and here I am. ^_^;
Actually, I just woke up, after going to sleep around 11:30 pm last night.
This whole incident has both good and bad consequences, a good one being that I got some much-needed sleep, a bad one being that I have the chance of being totally lost in class tomorrow.
Ah, well. I tink the good outweighs the bad, in this case. It's not like I can't catch up, eventually. ^_^

Friday, August 9th, 2002

Time:8:20 pm.
Mood: restless.
Since I tend to be so...random in my entries, I'll now be marking things by little + signs and seperate titles, so if you see something you think might be interesting, you can go directly to that and skip the rest, if you want. But mainly it's just to make me feel less unorganized. ^^;

+ Power Points: The name of the project for Nutrition & Wellness we (Jenna, Erica and myself) have been doing all week. We had to choose a career, do a sort of report on it, and present it to the class. Today was the presentation, and it turned out both Jenna and Erica were very shy about speaking in front of the class (I wasn't expecting that...they really don't seem like the shy types ^^;), so when it's finally our turn, and we get to the front of the classroom, they both go totally silent. Out of desperation and nothing more, I just start talking. Yep, I got stuck presenting the whole thing. O.o
Anyway, it wasn't so bad. And they seemed really grateful that I did the presentation, so it all worked out. ^^;

+Ch-ch-ch-changes... : I knew this guy through all of elementary school, and actually had a crush on him for a short while. His name was Taylor. He was blond, preppy, and your average young boy. That was then...let's fast forward 3 years later to Yesterday morning.
I was in the cafeteria, waiting to be sent to 1st period, when Bess (a friend of mine), caught my attention and suggested I sit beside her, since all the other seats were taken. I do, and she asks me if I remember Taylor. At first I don't, then I do. Yes, I reply, I do. She then points to a guy standing by the doors. Said guy has long black hair, and he's wearing black eyeliner, a black fishnet shirt,dog collars and pentagram necklace, with black-painted nails.
"That's him".
After letting my jaw drop to the floor, blinking a few times, and making random noises, I regain my composure enough to ask : "WHAT?!".
I had seen the guy before, but I had no idea it was him. That's how different he looks. So, in short, preppy blond guy turns black-haired goth guy. O.o
(Note : I have no problem with goth people, at all. Don't be offended, okay? ^_^;)

Subject:Wonderful Day.
Time:6:59 pm.
Mood: good.
I got an A on my English paper! ^_^
Yep, Mrs. Smith did like it. In fact, she said I was a talented writer, and that I should look into taking a journalism class next year. ^_^ Hush, I have a right to brag...it's not everyday I recieve such a nice compliment.
But just because the day ended wonderfully, doesn't mean it was off to such a nice start. I woke up 30 minutes late, thus completely missing homeroom, and being late for 1st period again. This is the second time I've been late for that class, and it's only the third day! O_o

Subject:Now Or Never.
Time:6:08 pm.
Mood: happy.
Saw an old elementary school friend, Carley, this afternoon at lunch. She's so...so blond, and thin. I really don't remember her being that blond. O.o
Speaking of blond, I got paired with two of the five blond girls mentioned in yesterday's entry for a project in Nurtition & Wellness. Their names are Jenna and Erica. They're not so bad, really. I think they were just a little hyper yesterday. ^^; Today they were much more calm, therefore much more bearable.
Still don't know what the fook I'm doing in Algebra. Nothing new there.
Couldn't get my English and Algebra binders out of my locker today...don't even know what I'm going to do about that. Speaking of English, I think Mrs. Smith liked my paper. Good...I worked pretty hard on it.
And I'm tired of just being another face in this incredibly large crowd. Starting tomorrow, I'm going to do lots of things to make myself stand out. Today was only the 2nd day, so I still have time to make my mark on this place.
I actually started a conversation with these two girls at lunch today, Jerri and....someone(she was middle-eastern, I can't spell her name, but it sounded a bit like "Suyi"). ^^; This is a very big deal for me. I'll rarely respond to conversations, much less start them. But darnit, I wanna do it again!
Is much, much fun. ^_^

Can you tell I'm reeeaaally happy? ^___^

Subject:School stuff.
Time:6:34 pm.
Mood: tired.
My locker is the earthly incarnation of satan. Yep, it certainly is.

Now that we've got that out of the way, I'll give a quick overview of the classes and how they went.

Health : Because of my satan-locker, I was fifteen frikking minutes late. Yes, what a wonderful way to start the semester. Once I finally got there, I found that I'm not too fond of the teacher, Mr. Ramsey. He's okay, I guess, but a little too stern.

Algebra : Uh-oh. Really, uh-oh. We were given a five-page test (it didn't count as a grade, thank God), and I didn't know a single thing. I literally had to guess every answer. I, ladies and gents, am screwed.

Physical Science : Awesome. I love the teacher, Mrs. McGee. You can tell she's really into her job. It seems like it's going to be a pretty fun class.

Nutrition And Wellness : Hated, hated, hated it. Well, not the class, really, but the girls I decided to sit with. I'm not kidding, they just ruined the entire class for me. There were four or five of them, all blonde, perky, ditzy, and shallow. They spoke like traditional teenyboppers, all "Likes" and "Oh my gawd!s" and chatting about this couple and that couple. The most annoying people I have ever had the displeasure of meeting.

English : I love this class, if only for the guy that sets two desks in front of me. He's absolutley hilarious. He actually reminds me a bit of Bender from the The Breakfast Club, only less of a troublemaker, and more of a class clown. XD

Geography : Everyone seems to adore this class, myself included. You have the option of sitting either on the couch, the bench, or the desks. Since there are no assigned seats, I plan to alternate. The teacher, Mr. Dawkins, is really nice, but he's trying a bit to hard to be the "hip teacher". I find it funny or sad, depending on my mood.
I'm being a bit unfair, though. He really is very nice.
I saw this girl, Nikki, reading a Dean Koontz book, and went over and made a remark about how that particular one had confused me and I couldn't get through it. We got into a little conversation, and it seems like we have a bit in common. We're both bookworms, and fairly quiet, among other things.

In closing, today was one big headache. A pleasant headache, all things considered, but a headache nevertheless. I already can't wait 'till the weekend.
Now I'm off to do homework. ^^

School starts </i>tomorrow</i>. Sweet brother of dog (my own odd little expression...try not to be too freaked out XD).
This is extremely big for me, because I haven't set foot in a public school since 5th grade. Yah, I've been home-schooled up until now, and tomorrow I will be entering 9th grade, this time in a public school. I repeat, for emphasis : Sweet brother of dog!
I'm sort of nervous, I guess. Not unbelievably so, but that's just because it hasn't really hit me yet, I think.
My messenger bag is packed, and I'm in the process of choosing an outfit, so I'm pretty much ready. I won't be taking a lunch, or buying one, so I guess I'll be eating out of the vending machines.
I'll be okay, but just because it would make me feel better...wish me luck! ^_^
