So.. just find me elsewhere if you've got accounts on Twitter or Tumblr :)

..is much less fulfilling these days. Maybe that's a good thing. Maybe I can move on, kick the addiction and get a life.

|Writer's Block: No Laughing Matter
What do you think is too serious to joke about?
Figure I ought to reply to one of these one day..
As a huge fan of parody, I think anything can be made fun of in some way or another. Will it be offensive? Likely. Will it disgust victims of whatever this is? Of course. But parody will never be an all-pleasing art, and if it is wrong to be laughing at 9/11 footage with Yakety Sax music, then I'm sure as shit going straight to hell.
Everyone must reply with happy~fun~time (but not fun~time~happy wink wink nudge)

|I feel uuuusssseeellleeesssssss
Who knows why. Maybe it's because I'm drawing a blank on how to narrow down my internal assessment question from "Foreign occupation in Vietnam" to something that makes sense. Maybe it's because some people will flat out not acknowledge me unless I'm right in their face, even some of my best friends. Maybe it's because I've been more whiny than usual lately.
Well, to make this post a bit less depressing, I totally owned that Bio test I was worried about last week, and I did moderately well on the Chem test. And even though I don't know my topic well enough, I'm still going to Laurentian library! Should be fun. On the topic of History, apparently Zsolt got a 6 for answering everything, just too concise. Welp, I'm fucked. I'm way concise in History homework. I don't have the time for drawn out bullshit. Oh, I also did pretty good at Improv today. I sure hope I get callbacks.
More depressing- Two of my fish died of what looks like finrot today, and another is looking really sick. Stupid algae eater looks fine. I bet Pierre murdered them all because they're prettier than him :(

|The IB Program
Rather than do the absolutely frustrating amount of homework this program is thrusting upon me, I'm going to rant about this bullshit program instead. Subject by subject. Of course, much of this applies to my school more than the program.
Okay, first off is History. I have not learned in this class for at least two weeks. We started with learning capitals and such mundane things, and then soon moved into the territories of eurocentrism. I was intrigued and excited by this subject matter. Now EVERYTHING we're doing is morality and political ideology. What.
Also, I never wanted to take IB History. I tried taking World History. They told me it was paired with American History. I went with it, figuring I don't have much knowledge on their history really. I discover once we obtain tentative schedules that it's an IB class. A class where 90% or more of the mark is relient upon exams. What.
Next off is the Science block. I was originally planning to take only Chem, but lo and behold it was paired with Biology. Chem is the only IB class I'm really taught anything in. I love chemistry, I have an awesome teacher, a comfy seat and I'm enjoying the subject matter. Bio is the complete opposite. I HATE bio. It's all memorisation, and things that require no formula do not work well in my head. He expects us to read the textbook and make notes nightly, while he drones on during class. We sit in stools so high my feet don't touch the ground, and it's stiflingly hot every day so I'm practically knocked out every day. There is not one class where I haven't fallen asleep. Even worse? The whole science block, the exam is in TWO YEARS. For Chem at least I have homework so I can apply what I've learned, but Bio? All self-notes. All lectures. I'd drop it, but...
Okay, what would be the "Languages" block is now my academic English, which is great consdiering how bad I usually do in English. I dropped the french entirely so I have a second semester spare. Apparently now the English and French classes are bombarded with essays and shit, so I'm safe from it. Why is this bad, you ask? Because with my after school musical theatre course, I round out my eight credits. In this space I can put Outdoor Ed or Construction. Because of this, I can't drop Bio even if I wanted to, and now I have a spare that I can at least hang out with Kallie in. Dropping bio would be awesome because I'd be able to go to drama class every second day. I might be able to scrape a partial credit if Mr Blake is nice enough. That would be amazing.
Math is a real letdown for me. I love and have ALWAYS loved math. It just worked for me. I would listen and take notes and understand EVERYTHING. Until now. My math teacher has got to be the most boring and annoying man on the planet. We took oodles of notes and homework that have so far only been review. And then he gives us our "test internal assessment". Koch snowflake. I looked it up, and nothing is looking like how I did it. He just threw this at us with no background or anything. I don't fucking get it. I hate that I don't get it.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the reasons why I've been down on myself lately. I'm not so pathetic that my romantic troubles would bring me down completely. Although they're sure contributing.
But that's something for another blog post. Or forum post. What the fuck ever. Current Mood: pissed off

Thinking things would work out for me without me having to speak up was probably not a good idea.
Fuck you, timidity.
Oh well, pretty sure I've lost my chance.

I will squish them if my reflexes prevail. You think they could mind their own damn business, but they float around me way too much. I'm already swimming with disease right now, I don't need more.
On that note, I think I may be sick for the first time in what feels like years. Damn caf food.
I'm starting my homework when this entry is posted. That's 20 minutes earlier than yesterday, an improvement for sure.

I suppose I ought to use this journal a bit more often. I think I'll start by writing all my Facebooky notes in here, and then importing them to Facebook. That sounds like jolly fun.
..Nah, I don't want my old angsty entries copying over. Methinks I'll just copy/paste the bulk of this message over.( Something wicked this way comes...Collapse ) Current Mood: annoyed

|Longcat is looooooooong
Your Score: Longcat
85% Affectionate, 39% Excitable, 44% Hungry
Protector of truth.
Slayer of darkness.
Longcat may seem like just a regular lengthy cat, but he is, in fact, looong. For proof, observe the longpic.
It is prophesized that Longcat and his archnemesis Tacgnol will battle for supremacy on Caturday. The outcome will change the face of the world, and indeed the very fabric of lolcatdom, forever.
Be grateful that the test has chosen you, and only you, to have this title.
To see all possible results, checka dis.

Hah, I never ended up writing that rant. I wonder what I was going to rant about...
Anyways, this weekend was pretty good. Friday slacking, Saturday Keeganing... actually Sunday sucked. Woke up early for Church (bleck). Brunch was good, but I had to work on math review from there. Only managed to finish like half of it.
History exam tomorrow. I'm studying all morning at school. Hopefully Dan or Nico are there to study with.
Oh, I listened to more Audible Radio today. Yay Patrick! It was pretty nifty. Almost as nifty as Neil's Hooray Radio the other day, except with much more pro-DJ skills.
Uhhh...I'm tired and sick of school. But my brother's on the computer in the next room, so it's not like I'd be sleeping much when I get there. Oh well. Current Mood: cranky

|Thirty hours of fun!
Oh mannnn, thirty hour famine is definitely something I'll be doing next year. Maybe with some real pledging. That was some of the most fun I've ever had in my life.( Cut for length!Collapse ) Current Mood: accomplished
