uhm, I don’t think you can put a skateboard under math…
I have been avoiding this question for a VERY long time. So while I’m in the writing mood and before I shy away from this (again), I shall go ahead and post.
Favorite Book: ….and the torture begins. Why do so many people ask this question? I mean, do you honestly know ANYone that has actually answered this question with a real book? The only person I know that could MAYBE narrow it down to two or three books is my mom. Maybe. So I’ll just pretend this says ‘Post your favorite book out of the books you own’. More specifically because I won’t have to choose from well over 7 billion books, and I can just choose from my 60 or so. So I think my three most favorite is The Reluctant God by Pamela F. Service, Keeper of the Lost Cities (Shannon Messenger) and The Amaranth Enchantment (Julie [i forget her middle initial] Berry). But I LOVE all the books to the City of Ember (that series was AMAZINGNESS) and the new Percy Jackson series (I was really going to cry at the end of the 3rd one. I can’t WAIT for the 4th to come out) and the Hunger Games (..there are no words to describe the awesomness of that series. if you haven’t read them all, READ THEM). And Nancy Drew (I LOVE her). See why I avoided this question for so long? I’ll bet you anything I’ll remember more awesome books right after I publish this…
Favorite Movie: GAH, I DON’T KNOW! I’ll go with Mission Impossible (the first one…I haven’t seen the rest yet) and Epic (it was AWESOME). And that Ice Age: Continental Drift one (it was HILARIOUS).
Favorite Band: Um, I don’t really have one. I like all kinds of music (I mean seriously ALL kinds. I’ll listen to pretty much anything).
Favorite Food: I don’t really have one of those, but at the moment, I could REALLY go for some ice cream. Or brownies (they’re my most favorite dessert. right up there with lemon bars). Or DONUTS (we go back a looooong ways) :D
Before I answer the question, or even post the question I’m answering, I’m just going to say that they should’ve been more specific. Seriously. How am I supposed to answer such a broad question? I mean, I can…but they still should’ve been more specific.
So the question in…question…is number 21, How has your life changed over the past year?
….Okay, I obviously wasn’t reading this right. So never mind about the entire first part. I would scratch it all out…but I think I’ll just leave it as a public example of how my smart self is balanced out by…that.
But let’s see…last year this time, it would’ve been almost three months since my mom got re-married to my current-dad.
I can already tell you that a lot of things have changed since then. For one thing, I’m not immediately revolted at the sight of him (I was that kid in all the movies that didn’t like the new step-person, while everyone else did. Somebody should REALLY make a movie out of my life. It’d be interesting). I actually like him now. I don’t have a boyfriend anymore (not diving into details about that). We moved (worst. move. ever.). I found out that I could graduate half a year early (SEE YA SENIORS WOOP)…next year (…and the magic dies. just a little bit).
So a lot of events have happened in the past year. It DEFINITELY wasn’t a year of things I was expecting. I know, that’s life…but I like that it contradicts what I’ve been saying for awhile now.
You see, I’ve recently developed the theory that life is much too laid out. You need to do that, your inevitably going to have to do that, everyone expects that other thing, etc. Then, life throws some curve ball at you. A new person, a move, a death note…you know what I mean. Then you’re suddenly kind of confused. You had half of your life all planned out, but then, your not as sure of yourself. Then money starts to throw itself into the mix. You’ll need more money than you originally thought to fix this and that problem. And then this person is in trouble, and you should probably help them. THEN somebody decides to get sick (okay, not all of this has actually happened to me all out one time…I’m just throwing it out there). So you have all this swirling around, and you still have to worry about your social life and school. Sometimes, you don’t even realize all this is happening until you’re sitting all by yourself at some point, and you start to think about your life, and then, your just like ‘What the [insert whatever word you would normally use]’.
So like I was saying, I like how this year contradicted my theory. Why live a boring, normal, planner filled (ew) life when you can have curve balls thrown at you every couple hours?
Okay, I don’t really want either of those, but you get the point.
So I know this might be strange that I just now figured it out (hey, I’m a late person), but my blog seems kind of frivolous. Only being there because I like to write, or I feel a sudden need to express something. Or just because I’m bored.
And then I turn around, and 20 million other people are using their blog to post all this deep stuff. Deep as in ‘Guys…I figured out the meaning to my life. Let me share my life’s story with you.’
Yes, yes, yes, I know this isn’t the case for everybody. I follow many a blog that has nothing of that sort at ALL. I’m just pointing this out.
Not that I’m going to change what I’m writing, because I think it rightfully expresses what I do and what I think.
I think I might just point out that I’m not some random kid that blogs because they’re bored. Okay, that’s a lie. So scratch that. Let’s try that again.
I think I might just point out that I’m not just some random kid that has a blog (much better). Well, I am some random kid…and I have a blog…OK I think I’ll get to the point now.
The POINT is that I do think. And have deep-ish opinions about things. A lot of them. And I have friends who think a lot. And, contrary to popular belief, my life does not revolve around the internet and social media. Sure, my life would be different and much more lonely without it, but the only real reasons I need the computer for is to talk to my best friends who live out of state, and to do school.
AL…MOST…..FONE…wait, i mean, DONE September 20, 2013
14) Post your favorite book, favorite movie, favorite band, and favorite food.
21) How has your life changed over the past year?
22) Find a horoscope site and post yours.
23) Talk about your crushes.
28) If you had three wishes, what would they be?
29) Write about any particular habits/mannerisms that you have.
30) Where do you think you’ll be in 5 years?
Seven more to go :D
24) How was your week been?
Oooo, I like this question. Gives me a good chance to rant :D So if I start doing it….don’t be surprised.
So my week started out okay…you had that usually Monday dread, those moments where you just do NOT want to get out of bed, and those school assignments that made you want to stab somebody, but that’s all the usual. I’m assuming.
But anyways, Thursday rolls along, and my mom is like (and I’m just making this short and too the point…she didn’t actually say this word for word) ‘I forbid you to talk to all of your friends from Georgia’. I was like
I would’ve just been like WHAT?!?, but it was too early in the morning for that. I also probably would’ve cried, but again, it was much too early for that.
So now I have to live a lonely life all by myself with all my social media except for the family email blocked from my usage. I, however, got on without getting caught for enough time to tell everybody what the heck was going on, because they had just been sitting there wondering where I was all day. But then I had to leave. NOW I have to figure out how I’m going to make this work, because I’m obviously not going to just sit around and be like ‘Yes, mommy. I’ll do whatever you say for the rest of my life :)’.
This might sound ungrateful or something…but as soon as I’m done with school, I’m leaving FAR away. I’m going back to Georgia to go to school. I’m not exactly sure how I’m going to get there or how I’m going to pay for it…but it WILL happen. I’m not going to be sitting around, playing with my thumbs, hoping life won’t throw some boulder at me. I’m going to climb on top of that boulder, stand on top of it, and be like ‘HA! IN YOUR FACE PEOPLE’ (and yes, I’m one of those people). I love my family…but I can’t wait for college. I’m so ready for it to start. Like, right now. I know college is a death trap with creeps and serial killers around every corner, with endless suffering and emotional breakdowns and endless school work. I actually realized that last year. But as long as I get what I want out of life, that’s all that matters.
Woah, this got deep REALLY fast. I would rename my post…. but the ‘This Is About To Get Deep’ thing has already been taken, so it’s a little late. But oh well.
ANYWAYS, have a nice night folks :3 Or morning depending on where you are. Or afternoon depending on when you look at this. Or tomorrow depending on what country you’re in (I always find it weird that somewhere in the world, they’re a day ahead of me. That’s awesome and all, but wouldn’t that be confusing if you were flying there? Just saying).
