Until next time, Em 🙂

P.S. ~ I was talking to my friend just now…

Me: “Should I do homework or go to [insert town name here]? (I have a college night thing in 3 hours and I’m stuck at school)

My teacher (sneaking up on me – creepy): “homework.”

Me: *WTF WHY ARE YOU HERE* “well I want to do homework, but really I don’t…”

My friend: *says something about history class*

Me: “OH YEAH! are we gonna watch that movie?”

My teacher: “which one”

*me trying to figure out the movie name*

Me: “you know, you said we could watch the rated R for nudity one (he said it was ok as long as he covered the screen lol) or the Auschwitz one or… the other one”

My teacher: “Schindler’s list?”

Me: “YES! It looked so fun!”

My teacher: “History class is not for fun.” *walks away*


Seriously, Downton Abbey? Seriously?

The setting: History Class, around 11.30AM

Fade in. 7 girls and a (male, may I add) teacher work on their projects (well, not the teacher)

Teacher: So, did anyone watch Downton Abbey last night?

Friend: OH MY GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE ************ (not gonna say what she said, just in case you watch it and don’t want spoilers!)

Teacher: I KNOW, RIGHT!

Me: Uh… you watch Downton Abbey?

Teacher: Well, actually, my daughter does… she’s having a Downton Abbey High Tea for her birthday.

Me: Uh…

Teacher: And guess who’s going to be the butler? *sighs*

Me: hee hee

Teacher: *mimes holding a plate with food on it like they do at restaurants* “would you like some tea?”

Me: oh my god dying here no big deal

Fade out.

Yup, just a normal history class.

Until next time, Em 🙂

I sure love tea…

I’ve had a sudden interest in tea lately. Why tea, you ask? I have no idea. Maybe it’s because I had a spectacular cup of chai tea latte… or maybe because I learned how to make a Dublin Fog. Either way, I now love tea.

My family, though? They don’t love tea so much. My mom likes it occasionally, but in boring flavors like Peach and Earl Grey (who drinks this? I found a bunch of unmarked Earl Grey teabags in our “mystery box” aka our leftovers box and I accidentally had one… ew)

My brother and dad think that we have too much tea… I don’t think that seven boxes are too many. We need some variety.

Because we need some variety, and because I hate Earl Grey and green teas in general, I decided to get some new teas.

Strawberry Shortcake

Organic Root Beer Float

Yum 🙂

And I found some more delicious looking teas!

Adagio has a great selection of blends:

James Potter – Irish Breakfast, Candy Apple, Gingerbread blend

Butterbeer – Caramel, Cream, Vanilla blend (all the things that go into actual butterbeer, which I’ve made before!)

Hello Sweetea – Valentines, Cinnamon, Vanilla Oolong blend with rosehips

Madman with a Cuppa – Rooibos Vanilla Chai, Almond Oolong, Ceylon Sonata blend with chocolate chips

Birthday Cake Tea – Vanilla, Rooibos Vanilla Chai, Honeybush Vanilla blend

Along with some great plain teas:

Valentines (tastes like chocolate covered strawberries)


Stocking Stuffers – candy cane, pumpkin spice, candy apple, gingerbread, chestnut and cranberry

Also, my friend is bringing me the

TARDIS Blend – Earl Grey Bravo, Blackberry, Vanilla blend (which apparently tastes like a blueberry muffin)

Until next time, Em 🙂

P.S. ~ A teacher at my school just walked into the classroom I’m doing my homework in and asked me if I was making progress on the History reading… yeah, if you call browsing teas online progress.


This feels like 8th grade all over again, when I was going to dress up as a British man (complete with a monocle) for Spirit Week at school (but then I switched schools the week before Spirit Week, so…)

I GOT A SUIT. Well, a suit top. Why is this so awesome, you ask? I have no idea. I just like wearing button-down shirts and suits (but mostly the button-down shirts. And I like looking at guys that wear button-down shirts. But you know… not that cute guy in band who wears one, or anything… hehehe (he forgot his music last week so now I have an excuse to talk to him – “hey did you lose your music”)



Which do you think is better? I’m kinda liking the “spiffy” outfit more, because the “casual” outfit reminds me of the male teachers at my school every time we have Open House…

And sorry for the terrible pictures, my brother apparently doesn’t know how to use an iPhone camera – my whole face was blocked by the light (the sun? I have no idea) because he doesn’t know how to focus on my face…

Until next time, Em 🙂

Thank you so much, dearest teachers

Why do teachers want to make us suffer so much? I have:

1. Bio test

2. Spanish test

3. History test

4. English essay

All do this week. The English essay was assigned one week ago, and the draft is due today (hopefully she’ll take my body paragraphs without the intro and conclusion… because I thought it was due Friday, but turns out the draft is due today and the final is due Friday)

I’ve decided to make Spanish flash card on http://www.quizlet.com which will definitely get me a higher grade. Hopefully. The History test, though? Haven’t even started the reading… kill me now.

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 🙂
