Hopefully grunting isn’t a motif of Shakespeare’s plays…

Today in English class we had a sub, which is really lucky (seeing as it’s the first day back and that teacher is freaking scary). We’re currently reading As You Like It by Shakespeare, which is totally over my head. I have no idea what’s happening. But there are some pretty exciting things that happen in that play, I’ll tell you that much.

We were listening to an audio book of the play in class, and then we came upon an… interesting… scene. Two of the characters are wrestling (don’t ask me why) and in the play, there is literally one line dedicated to the event. ONE LINE. 

The audio book, though? Not so much. There was grunting. For a full one and a half minutes. The characters said a few lines in between the grunts, but did we actually hear what they were saying? Nope. We were too focused on the GRUNTS. The sub had to turn down the sound, it was so loud. We were all hiding behind our books, laughing about the hilarity of the event.

I feel so sorry for the sub. Seriously, you help out in an Honors Brit Lit class and expect to read a play and talk about it, but no. Grunting audio books. Seriously. I’m actually happy that we had a sub, because seriously, having a 75 year old (nun) teacher having to sit though 1.5 min of that with us laughing our heads off? I don’t know if she would make it out alive.

I was telling my friends about it after class, and it just so happened that these friends have a class right next to us at the same time. Apparently they could hear the whole thing (though not the grunting) because they were having quiet group activities. Yup.

Until next time, Em 🙂

This is what I do with my life.

Today I went to a super amazing town near my house to get (a) fabric for my pillows (b) BRITISH CANDY OMGASDFGHJKL and (c) gluten free muffins – my mom’s doing.

I made some super cute pillows using some old pillows that we had on hand (shown in the picture) and a new pillow-form. I used the toaster fabric that I got a while ago and made shorts out of, and some stripy fabric, Paris fabric, and typewriter fabric. Yay!

Maltesers yay!!! (cuz you know… danisnotonfire said they were good so I had to get some… okay that’s an understatement. He didn’t talk about them… he poured a whole box of them all over himself in one of his videos)

Until next time, Em 🙂

P.S. ~ I totally forgot to post my weird dream this morning! I was going to lunch at my school and there was bubble tea (sometimes we have it, but it sounds more exciting than it actually is – it’s just really thick smoothie with tapioca bubbles – not the real thing), and this time they had jelly (yay! no more tapioca!) and I scooped a lot into my little cup and went over to get my smoothie put in, but my eyes wouldn’t open (it was actually really scary – it’s like when you’re super sleepy and your eyes legit can’t open) and so I kept moving the cup around and couldn’t get any of the smoothie. Then I walked down to the place where I eat lunch with my friends and THERE WAS A GREEN BABY RAM. Like, wtf?! And my friend petted it. And then I went to English class where I have a super scary teacher (who is actually really nice,  but she just has an angry tone of voice even when she’s happy) and I couldn’t keep my eyes open so she thought I was sleeping and I got in trouble. Yep.

P.P.S ~ Check out my youtube channel! Yay!

One Year Blogiversary!

Yay! I can’t believe I’ve made 262 posts, and had 1,342 views, and 251 comments. That’s freaking crazy.

I also can’t believe that I didn’t post on Leap Day. It’s my favorite day… but I don’t even know what happened with that.


If you want to relive the strangeness that is my life… check my first post out and yeah. Have a great day.

Until next time, Em 🙂
