I just got a new song for piano and I'm practicing it more than I've ever practiced. I can only play well to about 40 seconds into the song, and it sounds okay to about 1:15, but that's a lot of progress considering it's me and I've only had it for a week.
I've been in a slump lately, but I think I'm getting better, hooray. :(
I recently found a wonderful term to describe myself: L'esprit d'escalier
I didn't have much time online yesterday, so here's what I did.
At school we kicked off Red Ribbon week with an assembly. Some rock band came, shared us the message of "Be yourself, drugs and alcohol are evil, etc. etc." they were okay, and it was a good way to kill a class period, although I think I've gone deaf. As we were leaving, I heard this conversation between two seventh graders.
"Here's my rock song" *holds up middle finger*
I hope the poor boy didn't actually think he was being funny or clever or anything.
After we got home, we went to a corn maze. The theme was David Archuleta, the maze was shaped like him and his song(s) were constantly blaring over the speakers.
I'm on here rather late, it's not very exciting, and I'm tired.
The house of the coach of the Utah Jazz (Jerry Sloan) is very close to my house (And right across the street from my church) and he's been trying to sell it for some time. He's listed with a few agents, and none have been able to sell it. One however (I don't know if he's still with him.) put one of those gigantic full page ads in a newspaper. This would be unexciting except for the fact that the ad was extremely cheesy. He devoted about half of the ad talking about what a great real estate agent Mr. Sloan had chosen, and came up with something like this.
"In 1986 JOHN DOE [My dad read it aloud so I never actually saw the ad, but the idea that he types his name in all caps whenever he uses it makes me giggle] was in a sever motorcycle accident that left him fighting for his life. Pinned under the twisted wreckage, JOHN DOE survived what should have been a fatal accident with his [adjective] and [adjective] [i'm tired, insert whatever you want into those because I can't think of anything at the moment.] the same skills that make him such a wise choice."
Alas, I'm having trouble finding information on the house on the real estate sites I've looked at. I'm sure if I can even get the address, everything will click into place.
COURAGE:Courage is displaying a support Obama sticker and an HRC (Although I'm not sure anyone knows what it means) logo on the same car while in Utah.
RIDDLES: Anyone who posts in this topic saying "I'm sorry, I am an atheist and this riddle offends my lack of beliefs by mentioning religion." should be murdered in their sleep. Freedom of religion=/=Freedom from religion.
I have just decided that I don't like it when people say "go play real guitar not dummy giutar hero noob." If people want to say that, then they should never play video games again.
Go join the REAL army, don't play Call of Duty.
Go kill some REAL aliens, don't play Halo.
Go get all of your REAL skills to level 99, don't play RuneScape.
My past two Mondays have been good, and last Friday was bad.
Any explanations? Trying to say Monday=Anything good is like dividing by zero, and you know what happens when you divide by zero.
I'm scared. >.<
And now I have to sit down and write one about my "Life Purpose and Ambitions" for my Eagle Scout. I can only manage two paragraphs so far. I'm fine at writing stuff about what happens to me, but when it comes to actually writing down stuff about me as a person, bleh.
We had this weird German guy as a sub, he reminded me of Einstein, there's also this sub who calls himself Homie K who reminds me of Robin Williams, but that's off topic. These two guys started fighting in the middle of the class and he shouted "NO VIOLENCE!" really loudly, so they did the logical thing and kept fighting. He went in to break them up and started doing all this martial arts stuff, I think one of the people got really freaked out.
Then on the way to 7th period someone knocked my binder out of my hand, I thought that stopped being funny 50 years ago, but I must be mistaken.
Enough about me, let's hear more about you.
Today I got checked out of school to go see the dermatologist. He gave me a prescription that is apparently strictly controlled by the US government. You see, it causes birth defects, and some people link it to depression but no conclusive evidence has been found about that (Thanks, Wikipedia.). So I had to go through and sign a form promising I wouldn't get pregnant and some other stuff.
Funny story: Girls taking this drug have to have pregnancy tests every so often. Apparently some men from New York got offended that THEY weren't being given pregnancy tests, and did what any logical person would do when they were offended, write millions of whiny letters until something happens. The sheer stupidity of some people amazes me, amirite?
If you see these and don't want to kill yourself, you're some sort of god.
There's one I wanted to show you, but I couldn't find it on YouTube, it goes something like this.
Twin 1: Hey we're on a ship! (Or something to the effect of "Dear viewers, we believe that most of you have IQ's under 12, and would like to explain everything to you to avoid any confusion.")
Twin 2 (After some useless dialogue): I estimate we're going about 20 knots
Unbelievably stupid girl: Knots? I don't know how to tie knots!
Twin 2: No, it's a measurement of speed, I must explain this to you so people with IQ's under 12 will know what knots are.
Unbelievably stupid girl says something unbelievably stupid
Bailey, the new girl: Hi, I'm Bailey, the new girl. (This is the one line I am absolutely is 100% accurate with the commercial.)
Unbelievably stupid girl: Hi Bailey! Can you tie knots?
Bailey, the new girl: Well I can shuck corn, slop pigs, and do some other stereotypical farm thing that will assure you I am a "Fish out of water." My lack of knowledge of modern living will ensure hilarity and the same 5 jokes being used 500,000 times each. I am sure I can handle a few knots!
Unbelievably stupid girl: Shuck? slop? Other thing? I just got a manicure! See me hold up my hand to indicate to viewers what a manicure is?
*Other promotional stuff is said*
DISCLAIMER: Making fun of Disney is a favorite pastime of mine. If you don't like it you can ignore me.
needz 2 rant kk
Complainatron is still sitting next to me and still won't shut up. I wish I was brave enough to tell her to stfu.
We have vocabulary tests. Normally I don't mind them, but she's making us memorize the definitions word for word, that's a problem because I have no idea what most of them are trying to tell me. To top it all off, she's making us retake the test until we get 100%
I just referred to Monday in a positive way without the universe collapsing in on itself. :o
Nothing really extraordinary happened today, I just feel really happy. :D ^_^ ^_^ :D ^_^ ^_^ ^_^
I LOVE THE WORLD! <_<
PS: Goliath, it is very possible I'm on drugs right now and don't know it.
G=How many girls are directly in front of you.
T=How fast they're talking in WPM
H=How hungry you are on a scale of 1-10
B=How many friends the girls will have cut in front of you to join them.
I have this sudden urge to post something here. Nothing happened today (unless you count driving for an hour looking for a store that went out of business who knows how long ago and "Something.") I just want to type something. School was better than average but that was because I was happy it's Friday.
Enough about me, let's talk about you.
Words cannot express my gratitude at tomorrow being Friday. Quite frankly, this week has sucked and I need a weekend off. But now that little pessimist inside of me is telling me that after the weekend comes Monday, which have been scientifically proven to be the worst day of the week.
And today in biology we watched parts of Ferris Buller's Day Off. I thought it was funny that my teacher had minimal reaction to someone saying Dipshizzle but apologized profusely whenever someone said God. She's not Mormon (Here in Utah you are either Mormon or not Mormon, there are no other religions here no matter what people say.) so maybe she thinks we riot when we hear the word God.
Kind of a random entry, but it makes me feel better. :D
More random thought(s): Please stop bringing up CQ. It makes me feel awkward.
