Going Overboard

I should be finishing my art project now, but instead, I'm doing this. So, I went to Walmart today, and I'm going to be in aerobics next semester, so I got some athletic wear for class. No, I didn't get some, I got a closet full. I bought three pairs of yoga pants, two pairs of athletic leggings, a short sleeved athletic shirt, a long sleeved athletic shirt, both stay dry material, five sports bras, and a pair of athletic shoes. I am going to be the envy of the class. Haha! I'm definitely the type of person who likes to go overboard. One time, I was on a health kick, and I went out and bought like, $200 worth of organic healthy fresh foods. I cooked healthy meals for maybe, like, three days, exercised for two, drank lots of water for five, then went back to eating super unhealthy convenient food. I am bad at sticking to things. Luckily this is a semester class with my best friend, so I can't give up. It's impossible. I CAN, however, cheat. Like, not really push myself, and walk when the teacher isn't looking. So wish me luck. I'm wearing some of my new clothes now, and I feel really springy. I'm going to go for a jog maybe when my project is cooking.

And I Thought I Was Doing So Well...

Several hours later, I'm still working on the same assignment. I got several long written responses finished though, so I give myself credit for that. I'm going to continue to post until I have to leave and get ready for school. I'm a wreck. I'm about to make coffee or something. I've been guzzling down bottles of fresh, lemony, sugar-free fizzy drink. Ha ha! British for a second. Anyways, it's actually sparkling water, so, yeah. I'm listening to a lot of upbeat, happy music, but I'm slipping slowly slipping into zombie mode. Luckily, when I'm in zombie mode, it's like I'm on autopilot. Hence, I still manage to finish my work, somehow. Actually, I finish it faster usually. Hmm... Maybe I should let myself go... He he. Well my teachers are all crazy. OOH! Update on Wonderland. So far, I have three songs. "Wonderland", "Love Like That", and "Fools". My favorite is "Fools" because it's about me again. That sounds weird.. But the other two aren't exactly autobiographical. It's about the cute, distracting guy in my art class that I mentioned earlier. I'm glad I can be so bold on the internet at 4:30 AM, because he will never ever read my blog. If I was in my "right" mind, I would stress about the fact that my friends who know about my blog could tell him and direct him this way. But Hakuna Matata. No worries for the rest of my days. The dark hours have a way of placating my mind. Feast your eyes now, though, because this post will most likely be edited, along with the other one that mentioned him, tomorrow at some point. Oh, another thing. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. My back is soooo screwed up. So wish me luck. I'll be back sometime in the next our. I'm out.

Book Challenge Again.

So, two minutes later, no homework done, and I'm writing another post. I entered another book challenge. I have to read six books by the end of January. So here are mine
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater finished January 2nd
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover- No progress whatsoever
Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel- No progress, and I don't even know what it's about
Nine Lives of Chloe King by Liz Braswell- 7% finished
Your Guardian Angel by Skyla Madi- Not started

And then The author that's new to me
Wake by Amanda Hocking. But I'm changing that to Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo, because I had wanted to read that forever, but I thought it was called Good Oil, not that, so I just now figured it out and bought it. The rational human being would think, "Oh, this book looks really cute! Why isn't it available in the US??? Hmm, well there's another book by this author that is available. I'll check and see if THAT looks any good." And then I would've seen that it had the same blurb about it that Good Oil did, and I would've realized that, Hey! It was just published under a different title here! How funny! Anyways, my point is that I could've read it a lot sooner, but I had to be stupid and not look at Buzo's other book. But I finished it in one day, and she IS a new author to me, so I think I'm going to replace Wake with Love and Other Perishable Items. I don't think I'll have time for a seventh book.

Still Workin'

So, I did approximately two questions on my anatomy homework since the last post. I'm feeling pretty proud of myself. I wish I could just turn off the rest of my computer besides the informative part of Google, which I can use to finish my homework faster. But I can't do that. So I continue to procrastinate. It is 1:17 AM. I'm going to die tomorrow. I really need to finish this stuff. I already decided to pull an all-nighter. If I'm going, I better go all the way. Once I fall asleep, there's no turning back. I sometimes think I can take an "hour power nap" It turns into me falling into hibernation with no hope of even waking up for school in the morning. I've done this before. There's no doubt that I won't be at all cognizant tomorrow. It's a fact I have to accept. I am now turning on cheerful upbeat music to fuel my brain. It's going to be a long night...

Pulling an All-Nighter to Finish Homework and Study for exams

     So, if I didn't say this before, I am the biggest procrastinator ever. Like, EVER. Anyways, instead of finishing all of my homework and going to bed, like I should, I'm going to write a most likely very lengthy post about how I'm staying up all night to finish my homework. Good plan. So, I have a butt-load of Anatomy homework to finish, and I'm Googling all of the answers, of course. I always let other people do all of my work for me. Luckily, I already finished my English homework. Mostly because My English teacher is my FAVORITE teacher, and I don't want him to think any worse of me than he already must. Even though apparently I'm his favorite student. I don't know how that happened. I have a C+. You'd think that people with bad grades are automatically on their teacher's bad side. Not me. I'm still his favorite. Then I have some World History homework. Then a ton of Algebra 2 homework to finish, which should be easy because I think all of the answers are online. Then, I have to study for my Nervous System test that I have tomorrow, along with studying for the Final Exam in that class. Good grief. Oh, and to top it all off, I have two ART projects to do at home, because there's a cute, distracting guy in my freaking class and I hardly got anything done all semester. So, now I'm going to have to make a butt-load of salt dough, build, bake, and paint a totem pole of my own design, and turn that in instead of the clay one that I was supposed to make. But I'm in sculpture, not ceramics, so I guess it's okay to use other materials besides clay. And, I have to make a little house and habitat out of outdoors items. What a fun night I'm having. I think I'll put the house off a little. It'd be extremely impressive if I could finish a salt dough project and paint it and turn it in tomorrow. Then I could turn in the house thing on Exam Day. You know, I should really get to that. But I'm perfectly content telling all of you about it, so, I'm good. Just kidding. I'm out.

Saturday! Six Events In My Boring Life.

1. I turned seventeen seven days ago!
2. I finished my album, Broken Mirror, about a month ago. Now I am working on my next album, Wonderland, as I am obsessed with Alice in Wonderland. I incorporated it into one of my songs, titled the song "Wonderland", and then titled the album that. I'm planning for most of the songs to be cute and happy and unique. That way it will hopefully be deserving of its title, because that's the kind of atmosphere I picture in Wonderland. The reason that my first album is titled Broken Mirror is because a) It was the first song I wrote, b) I thought it was a powerful title, and c) it encompasses the insecurity that lives in between the lines of all of the songs on that album. Most of the songs were sad or contained heavy material. They were all connected to things in my life, except "For Daisy", which I was inspired to write after reading The Great Gatsby. But I did read that book, so it still connects to me in that way. But they all had insecurity hidden in them, sometimes more obvious than others. It includes songs about the boys I was never good enough for, and the one who used me, there is a song about suicide, one about eating disorders, another about my brother who I thought I would never get back, a letter to my possible future daughter telling her not to be anything like myself, and one about God, which I guess doesn't completely fit on the album, as there isn't anything having to do with insecurity in it. Whew, talk about a run on sentence! If I weren't so lazy, I would use semicolons. Well, that's all about that.
3. I have midterms next week D: I am so not ready.
4. The reason that I am so not ready for the midterms is that I missed three days of school this week, the week of prep, because I had the flu. still have it, actually. Apparently there's a flu going around where you have the symptoms for a few days, then you start to feel better for a couple days, then BAM! It comes back worse than before, lasts longer, and apparently killed some people including teenagers. as you can guess, I felt a lot better yesterday. But now, I have the extreme nausea, building fever, headache, and pain everywhere. It sucks. I probably shouldn't be using my computer, because I might give it a virus! Haha! I try... Anyways, so I've had a pretty crappy week. And now I'm going to fail all of my classes. Including art. That does NOT look good on college applications. ESPECIALLY when you want to go into the artistic feild, like myself. I may have to puke my way through exams... and I have emetophobia, the fear of vomiting. I FREAK OUT when I puke. I haven't allowed myself to do that in four years. It takes a lot of willpower and involuntary muscle control. Just kidding. But seriously, I have no idea how I've managed to keep everything down for so long. Well this is getting gross... Next subject.
5. I am sad to inform you that the book has fallen to the wayside for now. I am way too busy to write a book, do schoolwork, keep a steady job, AND write songs (actually, writing good songs only takes about fifteen to twenty five minutes for me.) all of the time. Also, I will most likely change some of the subject matter, including the blurb I posted. It seems extremely unrealistic, now that I am a year older and no longer believe in friendships like the one I created between Alice and Darik. I wanted to create the perfect forever guy friend that I never had, and I got carried away. So, that will change, and I probably won't get back to the book until summer, and then I'll write like crazy.
6. As I mentioned above, I have a job! I make my own money now! My friend makes fun of me because I'm not on a payroll and I don't have to pay income tax yet. I personally like the fact that he's just jealous that I make more money than him per week, he has more hours, even, and I get to keep all of it whereas he owes some to the government. This is why he says I don't have a real job. But we actually have the same political beliefs, and with what the government is doing with our taxes, he agrees with me that we don't owe the government crap! I certainly don't want my money going to the lazy people who won't get off their arses and get a freaking job! I understand that there are people trying, and that there are people who have disabilities. I'll gladly pay for them. But did you know that most people on welfare have no intentions of ever having to work. In the future, If 60% of my hard earned paycheck is going to those lazy people, what's the point of even working? Maybe everyone should go on welfare. Let's see how that friggin' works. ERGGGHHH!! I also don't want to pay for government programs that I don't believe in. I think it might be illegal to put down the president of the US on a public website unless you're paparazzi and that's all you do, but I'll take my chances. Most of the paparazzi are extremely liberal though, so they most likely don't do that. Seriously though, this is not libel. It's just the truth: Obama is doing a really crappy job with our country. We are being dragged through the mud by him. I have no idea how he's brainwashed everyone into thinking that he's the most compassionate president we've ever had, and the most "real". Okay, am I the only one who heard what happened in Libya? And he refused to continue our strong connection with Israel. He makes me sick. Oh, and the "real" part? Apparently he does stuff like play basketball and rap and other stuff, or that's what my friend told me. Our country's economy is in the toilet. He should really be working on pulling us out of the mess we're currently in rather than shooting hoops and dropping beats. Sorry, political rant. I'm a hothead. Anyways, I tutor the kids across the street in English. That's right, no gas money spent on getting to work either! So I guess my friend has a lot of reasons to be jealous. Haha!

Monthly Wish List!

Sooo, for January, My wish list consists of  one book.

1. Golden by Jessi Kirby

    Seventeen-year-old Parker Frost may be a distant relative of Robert Frost, but she has never taken the road less traveled. Valedictorian and quintessential good girl, she’s about to graduate high school without ever having kissed her crush or broken the rules. So when fate drops a mystery in her lap—one that might be the key to uncovering the truth behind a town tragedy, she decides to take a chance.

Long Time, No See

Sooooo, It's been a while. I had a lot going on, with school and such. I've been sick for the last four days and tomorrow I will be going back to school. i've been watching a lot of Adventure Time... My birthday was Saturday, and I got a DVD of episodes from my friend! :D This is soo random. Okay, so sorry I've been gone for so long, and now I'm going to make some more organized posts :)
