8 Facts of My Week (4)

1. While walking through the rows of buses at my school with my friends (yeah, welcome to a magnet school, where you will never be able to find your bus), I walked into a bus, laughed, and promptly walked into it again. After a laughing fit that may or may not have involved us gasping on the ground, I got up and, with exaggerated care, did a wide circle around it.

I then slammed into the bus next to it.

2. Boys are freaking confusing. Why can't they just say what they MEAN? Why is this so hard? YA NOVELS HAVE NOT PREPARED ME FOR THIS.

3. I think I may have actually not failed that French-Indian War test. Some questions at the end were pretty tricky (I had to identify stuff on a map, which was not mentioned on the list of things that we were supposed to study, and maps and I don't get along), but overall it was... okay. The first half was easy. Only one part in the middle was actually hard.

4. This has been one of the most stressful weeks since school started. I had five different assignments due on Wednesday, each one requiring work with a partner. Let me give you an actual exchange between one of my partners.

Me: Oh, hey, so we need to work on that graph thing since it's sort of due today...
Partner: No.
Me: ...huh?
Partner: Do it yourself. I hate that [bleep].
Me: Er. It's sort of a partner thing.
Partner: No [bleep]ing [bleep].
Me: ...Is this a joke? We seriously have to do this.
Partner: [bleep] you, do that [bleep] yourself.

What. The. Heck. (And believe me, I was thinking much worse, but I know some of the readers here are uncomfortable with cursing, so you can just imagine it.)

5. I'm nervous for reasons that are way too personal to share on a blog, but oh God, I'm so scared. If you guys have any links to a pick-me-up, I will love you FOREVER.

6. I've always known I'm a bad singer. My mom's amazing, but I got all my musical talent from my tone-deaf dad, so it's never been a secret or anything. But yesterday, I reached an all time low. Some friends and I were singing along to a Panic! At the Disco song (from the first album, of course), and as I was listening to us, I wondered where that awful, shrill, loud noise was coming from, and thought it might be the fire alarm.

Then it struck that was my singing voice.

I think I'll be taking Introduction to JAVA Programming this trimester instead of Choir.

7. We Heart It is one of my favorite sites now. The photos are so inspirational. <3

8. Glee is amazing. I borrowed the first season DVD from the library, and I'm loving it so much more than I thought I would. And seriously, Puck is so hot. He's a bad boy but with a sensitive side, too.

PS: Don't feel too bad about your voice, your project partener or your work. Your partener is obviously not willing to work or to rise up to the place where yu're happy that you did everything you've done, to where it pays off. You're work will pay off, I swear. Everyone makes mistakes.
And your voice? I sing like a crow, but that never stopped me. x

Boys in the real world just aren't quite as straight forward as in the YA Fiction world! It totally sucks.

And wow sorry about that issue with your partner for school.... I would hate it if that happened to me.

Oh and this post made my day. You are hilarious! :)

Hahaha, you're too funny. And yes, YA books do not prepare you for #2. Boys are confusing and I hate to say it but they don't get any less confusing as you get older. At least not the ones I've encountered. And isn't partner work the worst? I always tend to get stuck with partners who want nothing to do with the project and in turn do as little as possible. Annoying. And woohoo, Panic! At The Disco! Their first album is beyond epic.
