School Started! [Aug. 31st, 2006|04:42 pm]
Yeah, school started... and for the update, Anderson is a hell of a lot better than Nagel. I have to say I love it there, and I'm really looking forward to the rest of this year. The only thing I hate is the homework, which has increased by a lot, so I won't have much time to be on here anymore. But I promise, I'll stop in and update, and check on things when I can.

(I began writing this on the last week of summer, before school. I've been booked with homework for the last several nights, so I'm just now posting it).

So this past week has been very eventful. Therefore, I'm hiding the contents under an LJ cut.

Back!! [Aug. 2nd, 2006|02:47 pm]
[Tags|, ]

So I'm back. I've been back from camp for a while, but I didn't feel like updating until now. Camp was fun. Here are the highlights:

-riding a 24 year old horse (slow, but that's how novices like me prefer them).
-playing MASH for the first time since the fifth grade.
-Murder in the Dark (it was fun, a little over-rated though).
-Tie-dying shirts, for the first time in years, again.
-Scavenger Hunt (Yeah, my group made it in fourth place, top that!)

...and other sweet stuff.

Oh, and since I forgot yesterday...

Happy Birthday MTV!!

An interesting MTV fact: "Video Killed The Radio Star" by The Buggles was the first video to ever be played on MTV. Very appropriate, if you ask me.

I'll be leaving for Procter on Tuesday, and won't be back until Saturday. I'll tell you all about it when I return.

...So don't freak out, my feet are still securely planted on the face of the Earth.

So what's been going on in the last week?

How nice of you ask *false modesty*. Anyway, summer gym started... and it sucks (reader: *gasps*... no!) Despite what my friends who had taken it said, I still thought it wouldn't be very hard. That was an underestimation. Well, it's okay, I guess *feeling a bit less dramatic*. You just have to run a mile, play some sports, and swim. But if you're like me, meaning that if un-athleticism was a sin, you'd be in hell, prepare to look retarded in front of a bunch of jocks. Lol, oh well, there's academics, so I can win some of the time. I'm thinking about joining Quiz Team next year. I've heard the "oh, you'd get made fun of so bad if you did that" crap, and truth is, I really don't care. It would be fun, and I think I would be good at it, so why not? If smart isn't cool, then fuck cool. Like I said before, I would assume that by high school, people would be a little more mature than that.

Last weekend, I went backpacking with Katie, Hannah, Mom, and John at Zaleski (a park in Ohio). We hiked about 9 miles, with packs on our backs of course (mine weighed about 25 lbs). Yeah, un-athletic doesn't necessarily equal unfit. When we got to the site, we played cards (getting a tad bit better at ERS) and ate sodium-packed dehydrated meals (cooked of course). Note to fellow backpackers: go with Mountain House, that's the best brand. We also played Would You Rather, which is one of my favorite games right now. (For those of you who don't know what it is, you basically take turns asking "Would You Rather... *names two options*" and everyone has to answer it. Ex: Would you rather... burn to death or freeze to death. Some other ones we came up with: Would you rather... be blind or deaf. Would you rather... someone with no arms or someone with no legs (Robbie's question. No one's been able to beat it). Would you rather... Fred or George. Would you rather... Crabbe or Goyle. (Fred or George, or Crabbe or Goyle, which is the bigger difference, if any at all)? I think you've picked up the pattern by now.

1) Bold what is true about you.

2) Italicize what you wish was true about you.

3) Add one true thing about you to the end of the list.

4) Tag five LJ friends.

Ahh, I don't feel like tagging. If you want it, take it.

Just a little something interesting... [Jun. 22nd, 2006|04:43 pm]
[mood |boredbored]
[music |"Ghost Riders"]

I thought I'd share this...

Has anyone ever gone to http://www.mysticalball.com? Well if you haven't go there, and try it out, were you as amazed as I was?

After I did it, I was really curious to see how the hell it would know the symbol I was thinking of. So I looked it up. Here's the secret...

Take any two digit number, add both of the digits together, and subtract it from the original two digit number... it will always result in a multiple of nine.
Ex. 21, 2+1=3, 21-3=18(which is a multiple of nine).

The symbol that appears in the ball is always next to a multiple of nine. But why are the symbols different every time I do it? Well, if you look at the symbol board after each time you do it, you will notice that the symbols next to each number change, so you don't always get the same symbol.

...pretty sweet.

[music |"Potions Yesterday"]

So I'm back from ASP. It was a very fun and eventful, but short week. It was an experience like no other. I can't go into detail, since that would take a week just to describe it, but I'll sum it up. Going to Appalachia for the first time, insulating a basement, nailing shingles, giving kids piggy back rides, stealing clothes from older guys (don't ask, really), waking up to "Potions Yesterday" by Draco and the Malfoys, playing (and really sucking at, at least for me) cards, meeting new people, annoying old ladies who hate kids, and just plain acting retarded equals a pretty sweet time. So I loved it, and I am definitely going back next year. Hopefully I will be able to post the pictures from it on here (even though I'll have to scan them in, since I took a disposable camera, ugh!)

Hello Again [Jun. 9th, 2006|01:44 pm]
[mood |contentcontent]
[music |"Sultans of Swing" by Dire Straits]

Yes, it's summer! I actually have time again, so I've decided to update the lj (plus, myspace is getting kind of boring). I know no one reads this, but I don't care, I'm doing it for myself.

So, anyways, I'll tell you what's going on. The last day of Nagel was last Thursday. Leaving middle school was pretty emotional for a lot of people, since many of us are going to different high schools (Turpin or Anderson). Groups of friends that had formed during seventh and eighth grade are being torn apart. I was originally supposed to go to Turpin, but after Nagel, practically all of my school friends (except for about two people) are all going to Anderson, so I transferred. Because of this, I wasn't sad about leaving. In fact, I was happy, I'm sure I won't miss the middle school years. I'm glad that I am done with that period of my life. Nagel, like many experiences, had its pros and cons. I have more friends, I am more confident, and know much more than I did or was before. I got a lot out of middle school, but it's not something that I would ever want to repeat. It's just not a good age, and I'm sure whoever is my age or older knows what I mean, so I won't go into it.

I've heard that Andersonl is better. My friend, who's going to be a sophomore, told me "that it's like leaving hell, and going into purgatory". Ha, well at least it's a little better. Why am I so confident that it will be better? Here's why:

- most of the "prepulars" (nice word, Kaelie) are going to Turpin.
- older boys (self explanatory).
- more freedom.
- more stuff to do.
- more classes and opportunities.

I've also heard that in high school, people tend to leave each other alone more. More of a "we're all different, deal with it" attitude, if I'm correct. People do their own things, and other people don't care. At Nagel, everyone's in each other's business. If you dress a certain way, have an interest, or say or do something that most people don't, you'll be hearing from somebody about it. I'm also hoping that the retarded stereotypes (emos, preps, goths, etc.) will fade in time. That's getting really old, especially people who are trying to be a certain stereotype. I'm so sick of hearing "I'm an emo kid", or "I'm a punk", like that's literally all you are. I believe all this Nagel stuff will change, due to maturity.

Well, I got to go. Whoever you are, I'll see ya around.
