I am so amazed at...


I've been learning nothing in my classes

Because teachers are constantly going off topic...and I love it.
So far I've heard about my physics teacher's college life, French wife, bi-racial kids, rants about the next door physic's teacher's love life, my Spanish teacher's college majoring choices, her sister's habit of switching between Spanish and English, my English teacher's six year old son and his love life (aawh), my history' teacher's proposal, first date with his wife, his students' prank on his lawn, his elementary suspension from peeing on a kid in the bathroom (he was standing as far back as he could from the urinal to see how far his pee could go...), and so much more.
I love being a junior.
I also love our new counselor, who actually understands what it's like to be a non-Catholic Asian at an incredibly white majority 80% Catholic school.

I guess St. Francis aint all that bad.

Sleep Eat Watch TV

And drink tea that makes me go pee every ten minutes. Pretty much how I wasted my sick day at home. After I waited for over and hour at the ghetto McDonald's where we meet for carpool after I decided I felt too tired/sick/miserable to go to school...but mostly tired. And sleep deprived. So I took a loooooong 6 hour nap where I dreamed about going to Stoneridge Mall with my mom and seeing half the stores closed down and craving a strawberry cream cone pastry that they didn't have. Woke up, went downstairs and ate dinner at four while watching How I Met Your Mother (on my computer because I can't figure out how to work my tv...I can never find anything) and now I'm wasting time when I should be starting homework.
So I've pretty much been drinking tea every single day (sort of... this Mcdonalds stuff probably isn't even real tea...) but none of that hardcore bitter tea real old people drink. More like sugar water with a bit of tea and cream/milk either from Starbucks or McD's and I'm pretty sure I'm going to get early diabetes if I don't start controlling myself. So I'll probably stop when my teeth turn brown or I realize none of my clothes fit me anymore.

Not going to be a good week...

Aaaaaaaand junior year is starting to kick in. I thought I had a relatively relaxing week ahead of me, no tests or anything. Turns out NOPE, I just don't listen in class to whatever's coming up. So as of Monday+Today I've been ambushed with an army of incoming tests I didn't even know about and here I am wasting my time blogging about how gruesome junior year is when what I really should be doing is start reading the two chapters of history I have a test on tomorrow which I've only read half of...or not even.

Two movies I've seen lately:

Orphan was traumatizing. Almost as bad as watching the trailer for The Human Centipede (sickest thing ever...and not in a good way). I feel bad for all the orphans who'll never get adopted now because of this movie. =( 
What Dreams May Come so. It's about a guy who marries his soul mate and then their kids die in a car crash and the wife is really affected and then he dies some four years later when a car collides with him and so he goes to heaven and then finds out his wife committed suicide and because of that she went to hell so he wants to journey to the underworld or whatever and try to get her back. And so on...Yeah I thought the whole story line sounded pretty amazing but the movie was disappointing :(

And now I should probably start studying for that test I'm going to get screwed over by in the morning. On top of everything else, I'm sick. Well not like fever sick, more like snuffy nose coughing every five seconds even though I don't really need to sick. Still wish I could skip school, though.

Smells like skunk.

Yeah, at first I thought it was just my imagination. Until I was closing my bedroom windows and it definitely. smelled. like. skunk. The fact that the sprinklers were on and it was dark might have something to do with it. Just a guess.
And this owl outside my window has been hooting like a pubescent boy for the last 20 minutes.

On the bright side, I got a new phone the other day. It's the definition of mediocre, so don't get excited. Someone called it a "junior high phone" the other day. Well thanks, I'm really starting to love it now...
But I've used it for a full day on one charge so far, texting and all, and it's still at full battery. I'm so confident, I'm not even going to bother charging it for tomorrow! Ok honestly, most phones can probably go two days on one charge, regularly. I've just been cursed with sucky battery life, so I'm grateful. Ha.
But the best thing about getting this phone is the change in our family plan. Basically instead of me having my measly 1500 for $15 a month, and my sister's even worse 250 for $5 a month, our whole family has unlimited now! Something about us paying 2 dollars more for this and that when we should just have changed our plan and yadiyada. The guy at the Verizon store was nice. Rather than letting us go indefinitely with my outstanding over-limit charges and having to pay more anyways.

So my parents don't really know how to text. I tried teaching my dad the first day and he sort-of got it. So the other day I woke up and the house was essentially empty, no one was home. I texted my dad "Where are you?"

He replied,
"What u want"
HA. I actually laughed out loud when I read it. I love my dad.

Smoothies and Whipped Cream

My favorite part of smoothies is the whip cream. The whip cream is always on top. I always drink my smoothie with a straw. Straws suck the smoothie from the bottom. See the problem here?

By the time I finish sucking up all the smoothie, the whip cream is either deflated or just disappeared completely. Most of the time. What I do love though, is that level when there's about a 1:1 ratio of whip cream to smoothie left, and you get to mix it all in, and you get this sweet creamy goodness of fatty fatty goodness.

Note: Ok the right picture looks freakishly gross, I know. It's strawberries and mango, for the record.

Stupid birds...

So I think it's a bit of an understatement to say that our backyard's got nature...It's a freaking zoo. We get dogs, cats, pregnant kitties that lay their babies in a shady corner, turkeys come in giant herds and sh*t on every inch of the patio, deer that live under our deck, rabbits, and then of course the typical squirrels that establish an entire family under our apricot tree...etc etc.

Well the other day I came home to a peacock (above). And it wasn't the first time...a few months ago I saw one in our front yard (right) and I tried feeding it white rice but I guess they don't eat that kinda stuff (ha). But anyways yesterday morning I could hear an entire flock of them..."cluckcluckcluckcluck" there were about fifteen of them in our backyard. Great. Super sh*t covered. In all honesty, I suppose it's sort of neat, but uhhhh I'm not too likely to ever walk barefoot on the deck again.

I had a dream

And this sorta references to my fear of balding a few posts back. Like I said, I keep a dream journal and I record most dreams I have when I'm not too lazy or sleepy...
So my dream (I'm just gonna cut to half they said in Inception, you never really remember where you start your dream) I had just taken a shower and I was doing my usual routine (usual since I got my perm anyways...) of spraying in my leave in conditioner and combing my hair with my fingers. And then when I looked at my hands there was a big fat clump of hair (wdf right...) So I was thinking, Ha! Yes! I can prove to my mom that I'm balding! and I remember going out of my bathroom--
and then the dream ended.
So yeah, not that exciting, but I guess it shows what my real worries are. -__________-

A bit of midnight DIY

Not too many people know this, but a little hobby of mine is making my own alterations to clothes...And this is my most recent one that I started at around 12 AM last night and for some reason took me way longer than it should have...
So this was the original product (left) and the reason I left my feet in the picture was as a sorta measurement reference...the skirt was a size 12. Womens. Aka huge. And long. And the waist was so big it fell right off my butt. (this picture is after i altered the waist line though, so just imagine.)

And sooo this is the final product (right). Something that is actually wearable and won't fall down my ass. Bit too short for school length but I'll manage.

I would love to sleep.

No really, I would. I remember when I used to think sleep was "sooooo laaaame." Such a "waste of timeeeee."

Sleep is severely underrated.

So I told my mom...

That I thought I was balding. No, really. I've always had thin hair (anyone who knows me would agree...VERY thin hair) and not so much of it either... Basically, I wanted her to prescribe me some kinda magic pill that would make my hair grow like a weed. Nope, unsuccessful. No pills for me.
But seriously, my hair's been shedding a lot more lately. My guess is it's from the perm...and my hothothot showers. For some reason I guess I don't feel heat as much as other people, cause when I take showers with friends (okay with swim suits swim team. Don't be sick.) they always complain that my water's too hot. When it's perfect. For me. Anyways the hot water's probably scalding all my hair off so from now on, I'm going to FACE the shower (I usually turn away) and rinse with lukewarm/cold water. And I need to get out of the habit of touching my head when I'm spacing.
