"In this book, it’s music critisisim from the 19th century, and they’re ripping Tchaikovsky a new asshole, but the thing that really gets me is that it’s written so beautifully. It’s nasty reviews in beautiful language, and that’s what I want. My dad will forward some of the stuff people write about me, and I think it’s all bullshit. It’s all ‘Oh this sucks, that sucks, blah’. I don’t want that. I want you to write poetically about how bad I suck." - Regina Spektor.
TUMBLR IS PURPLE TODAY. For those who didn’t know its GLAAD (Gay and Lesbians Alliance Against Defamation) Spirit Day. They encouraged everyone to wear purple to show support. You didn’t need to be gay to wear purple, wearing the color represents standing up for youself, and everyone else who has been bullied. Nice move Tumblr. I like you even more now.
So you guys know how my family cancelled cable, and got an antennae? Well. That’s cool. BUT television now doesn’t work in my room, or in any of my sisters rooms. Our TVs are too old. The only TV that works is the one in the living room. I was fine with it before! But now I can’t watch anything I wanted to watch. At nighttime my parents get the TVin the living room. So that means no Animation Domination on Sunday’s. And everything I wanted to watch wasn’t exactly “Family Appropriate”. My eight year old sister doesn’t need to hear Steve Wilkos or Jerry Springer in the background of her life. My parents are probably reading this thinking “Well those shows aren’t even appropriate for you mister!”. It’s as if they think I go out of my way to turn off “inappropriate” television programs… What my mom views as inappropriate is different than what I view. She thinks there is a strict line between appropriate and inappropriate; while I think it should be judged on the persons age. THAT’S WHY THEY RATE MOVIES AND TV SHOWS BASED ON AGE…RIGHT?! Dur. Well. Earth to Miss Mother of mine, I’m 15, almost 16. That should permit me to watch TV14 rated shows…thanks. The end of my rant. I’m going to bed. :)
Nothing quite like seeing the people who scolded me for smoking pot, getting the cops called on them for alcohol possession. Marijuana>Alcohol. Did any of them apologize for judging me? Of course not! Drunk people say things they regret, get into stupid fights, and don’t remember half the night. Stoned people sit on the couch, laugh at stupid jokes and ponder life. Why someone would want to be drunk over being high, I’ll never understand… Let it be known that I DID quit smoking pot after 6 months of usage. Why? I got caught. At first, after I got caught, I wanted to continue smoking, but I knew I couldn’t because of my parents. Lately I’ve realized that my attitude has changed; no longer do I blame quitting on my parents, in a way, I thank them. It was getting excessive…to the point of nearly everyday. And my personality WAS starting to change. I needed that reality check. And I thank them for that.
I don’t plan on starting up again anytime soon. I’ve grown closer to friends whom I don’t want to loose, EVER, really. If I were to start smoking again, it would violate their trust and be extremely disrespectful on my part. I love these friends to the moon and back, and I would rather have them, over some silly plant anyday.
Now, I’m not saying that I’m now AGAINST smoking pot. Not at all. But you HAVE to be careful with the substance. Marijuana itself isn’t addictive, but the lifestyle is. Try to keep your stoned adventures to a minimum. Maybe once a week. Only on weekends. Because it WILL CHANGE YOU IF YOU ABUSE IT. I can’t stress that enough. I see friends of mine who use to be straight up AWESOME, now completley different people, all because they started abusing the substance. Oh well.
Anyways. Thanks for reading. :) I’m sitting here thinking about how happy I am that my parents caught me. I didn’t realize it at the time, but it was really for the best, like I said, it was getting excessive. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
Today I went to my counselor to talk about dropping spanish class. It was a LOT harder than I expected. The lady made me jump through hoops JUST to get the forms; and within 5 minutes of the appointment, I found myself arguing with my counselor. She wanted me to wait another week and think about my decision. I told her I already discussed it with my parents, and weighed the good and the bad. She wanted me to talk to my Spanish Teacher about my decision. My response? WHY?! What would I say?! “Excuse me, But I’m going to drop your class…k thanks”. But she REALLY wanted me to talk to my teacher before she gave me the forms. My response: can’t I just talk to her about it, and then give her the form to sign, all in one sitting? No was the answer. Can I talk to her now? Only if she’s got a free period. Thankfully, she did in fact have off the period I set up my appointment. On the walk over to her room, I quickly had to decided what to say. I said something along the lines of “I was considering dropping your class, and I just wanted to let you know previous to my decision so I can get your input.” Then proceeded to list the reasons why I wanted to drop the class. Why DO I want to drop the class? I didn’t grip the material taught last year, and this year, I felt myself rapidly falling behind in the class. It was affecting my GPA negatively. Thankfully, my teacher was understanding. She said she has seen me trying to comprehend the subject during class. I participate, I study, and I take notes when not manditory. Overall, I’m happy that I finally made the decision to drop the class. I just CAN’T get it. I had the HARDEST time understanding the subject last year, and this year would be even worse. That is all. Thanks for reading. =]
Cuomo or Paladino? Cuomo. Although I don’t LOVE either. I strongly dislike how both candidates expect cooperation with the Native-Americans, when they attempt to collect taxes. I understand NYS needs money right now, but that would be the incorrect way to go about earning money. Essentially, it’s stealing money. Way to go. Something in the near future WILL occur, a revolution of some sort. Our government is broken, corrupt and greedy. Why not Paladino? He’s all over the place; wanting to cut this, cut that. Sure it SOUNDS nice, but while reviewing his campaignI couldn’t help but to think “If he get elected, he’ll be overwhelmed”. He’s promising too much, and seems to be living in his own little world. On top of that, Paladino opposes gay rights, and opposes abortion, INCLUDING in cases of rape and incest. One day I’ll run for governor, and set everything straight. I think this covers Sunday’s Thought.
On to more personal topics! My family finally decided to get RID of Time Warner Cable. We’ve had the service for about two weeks now, and have already had to call a technician in four different times. FAIL. We’re not returning to Fios either, instead we’re getting a simple antennae. We’ll receive basic channels. 2,3,4,6,7,8. Ect. Am I upset? Not really. Animation Domination comes on channel six, and I love Steve Wilkos, Maury, and Jerry Springer. If I wanted to watch anything like Comedy Central, I’d have to go on the Internet to watch it.
SCHOOL: Still isn’t very fun. It’s better than last year though! As people mature, everyone grows more accepting of each other. Ever since HighSchool there’s not really any “You can’t hang out with us” or “You can’t sit here”. Everyone is nice to everyone else. Do I dislike any particular “group” of people? Not really. Do I dislike some PEOPLE in the group? Sure, but not necessarily all of them. Some of them I actually LIKE being around. I was surprised to find out one of the “popular” girls is atheist. It was refreshing to see that you can have opinions different than everyone else, and still hang out with those people. Who do I dislike? The people in that group who think they’re better than everyone else BECAUSE they’re “in that group”. It’s not that they’re mean or anything, but when you talk to them, you notice their smug personality, and can almost feelthe fact that they think they’re better than you. I tend to avoid these people. OH! Did I mention I’m dropping Spanish?
Today, school is out, and I’m enjoying my day off. I finished my homework the day before, so now I can just relax. I’m going out to lunch with my mom and sisters later in the day. That should be nice. =].
