I check my inbox to see if I have any e-mails from the library… AND I DO. Woot woot! Time to read some e-books, cuz I just finished Reached by Ally Condie (I recommend all of her books, omg so amazing) and I need some new reading material.

But then when I go to check out the e-books, IT SAYS IT’S NOT READY TO CHECK OUT. What is this?!

Well, Harry Potter #2 was ready to check out, so I guess that’s a bright side.

But still! I want to read my mermaid story (don’t judge, I like mermaids. It all stemmed from my love of the show H2O. I watched all 3 seasons in less than a month [over summer break] So, obviously I like mermaids.)

Anyways, I’m off to go read the magicallness that is HP. And you know, procrastinate on my homework. Heh heh.

Until next time, Em 🙂

P.S. ~ I did borrow this awesome sweatshirt from my friend (that I will soon be getting – If I ever get the e-mail that they’re ready to pick up)… so that’s good! I’ll wear in my next TAP video, so you all can see it. Yay!

Why I Don’t Like Confrontation: A Memoir

Today I went to schedule a drive for tomorrow at the place where I took Driver’s Ed.

If you don’t know what a “drive” is, let me explain. For my driver’s ed class, I had/have to have 6 or so in-car sessions where I apparently learn how to drive. First of all, I’ve been driving for 10 months. I’m pretty sure I already know how to drive. I’m not a pro or anything, but seriously… argh.

I asked the guy at the front desk (aka the guy who owns the place, aka the guy who scares me aka… bleh) if he had any time available for tomorrow, or Sunday. He looked at me like I was an alien. “That is impossible,” he said in his scary Russian accent. What, does he think I’m 6? Just tell me whether or not there is a slot available this weekend, and I can be on my way.

But nooo, then he had to check when my last drive was (erm, 8 months ago?)… this took 15 minutes, because apparently he couldn’t see the date clearly marked on the sheet that listed the drives I had gone on. Argh.

Then, he asked if I could come in after school to take a drive. I said the earliest I could come in was 4, and once again, he looked at me like I was an alien. “What time does your school get out?” “3.30” “What kind of school is that?!” “Ummm, a normal school?” (the last part was in my head)

And then he went on this rant about how I was apparently too busy to come in for a drive (well excuise moi but I have 4 hours of homework a night. Drives are not happening in my near future), but I had enough time to text and such. I wanted to punch him in the face right then and there.

And then he kept getting more pissed about how I missed a drive (so not true, the receptionist person thought I was signed up for one BUT I DIDN’T SIGN UP FOR ONE) and blah blah blah.

All this time, he was treating me like I was a 6 year old that couldn’t do anything for herself. Argh. He infuriates me.

Lalala I’m off to read a book and (eventually) go to sleep for around 10 hours. How I love the weekend. And skiing, which I might do tomorrow 🙂 🙂

Until next time, Em 🙂

Guys really need to get a clue…

First order of business… why do guys never respond to your messages? Like, you’re having this conversation and you’re waiting for a response but it doesn’t come for two days… what’s up with that?! Except for when you’re talking to your guy-friend and you couldn’t care less about the topic and he texts back in 30 seconds. That is the only exception.

Second order of business… there are some very strange guys in band. So maybe you remember Cody? Or… maybe not. I was going to set him up with Shelly, but yeah… that didn’t work too well because (1) I never talk to him and (2) he’s like 5’10” and I’m 5’1/2″… yeah. So he sits up in the first row with me (not the same instrument, but right next to each other), and we were talking before rehearsal started. I always bring in my dinner because I have to get it right before band and I don’t have much time, so I just eat some of it in the car and at band, etc. So last week I brought samosas from my friend’s parents’ restaurant… so delicious. Anyways, last week he was all “can I have some” and I was all “get away from my samosas! They are delicious and all mine!” And this week I had bubble tea (with the jelly, I practically throw up if I get the tapioca) which was delicious btw, and he was asking if the place I got it from was good or not. Pretty normal conversation, yeah? Well, it was not that normal from there on. During break-time, he was talking to me and his stand-partner about how soft his hair is (it’s pretty soft, but he uses gel so you know… anyways) and then he was talking about how his pants were apparently skinny jeans but they weren’t that skinny… yeah he is very strange. Moving on.

Third order of business… male teachers should not be allowed to wear biking shorts on school grounds. I don’t care how good looking you are, guys should never be allowed to wear shorts that short and tight and spandex-y. Never.

Fourth order of business… last year in English class for our final project, we had to write poems and paint a picture to go along with it. I totally BS’d the poem, writing it the night before it was due. I thought it was pretty good, because I fancied it up so it looked like a tree and I even colored it so it looked like branches and everything. Over-achiever, I know. Anyways, some of our class turned it into the National Poem Society or something like that to enter a competition to maybe get published in their newsletter. Well I thought, why not? It’d be pretty cool to get published. So I turned it in and completely forgot about it until a few days ago, when a letter came in the mail, saying that my poem was being published! Of course I forgot all about it, so I was really confused when my mom asked me why I was getting my poem published… anyways. Maybe I’ll upload it sometime.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Bittersweet goodbyes…

School is over in 3 days. I can’t believe this… soon I’m going to be going off to college (well, I have a couple years left, but still)… holy mustaches this is crazy.

On one hand, I’m really excited for it to be summer (laying around, getting through my movies list and books list, playing tennis, sleeping in, no more annoying classmates)

But on the other hand I’m really sad. I mean, after I go off to college, I’m not going to see most of the people I go to school with ever again… until our reunion, but still. Obviously I’m going to keep in touch with my closest friends, but it feels really scary that I won’t see them every day at school, and I won’t be able to chat with them for hours about pointless things and then screaming about the same things at school the next day. I won’t be able to rant about the new episode of Jane by Design or The Glee Project. I won’t be able to goof off in math class anymore. It’s just really scary, we’re all growing up so fast.

Well, that pretty much makes me pessimistic as I’m writing this post the night before my last final (I should probably sleeping, but… not gonna happen)… anyways, last night I watched the season premiere of Jane by Design, and let’s just say, I am very disappointed with Janie and Billy. If you don’t already watch this show, go, now.

Another really great show is The Glee Project. It’s pretty much a show about a bunch of talented young people, trying to earn a spot on GLEE. Now, this season will not be as good as the last one, because Cameron and Damian won’t be there, but it’s still gonna be great.

Also, my Favorite Playlist of the Week, or I guess just Favorite Song of the Week, I’ve Been Screaming by The Relay Company! All of their songs are really catchy but not too catchy (being on the radio would ruin them). And best of all, I feel like a hipster (one of my goals in life is to dress like a hipster, embarrassing, I know). Also, Let It Go by The Dunes is another great song! I heard both of these songs on Jane by Design, and let me just say my life has been changed.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Sometimes I just hate my friends so much…

Today during lunch Megan decided to talk about how I was so in love with Swimmer (I’m not, I just want to get to know him, he’s a cool guy!)… now that’s all great until she starts making up reasons that I’m in love with him, like that I see him everywhere (not true) and text her all the time about him (not true). Especially when she starts telling an annoying girl, Julie, that I’m in love with him. Not cool. Especially because I really don’t like her and I don’t want her to know about my (non-existent) love life.

Also, next week I may be going with Shelly to tennis state! 🙂

Until next time, Em 🙂
