something to check out

I don't know how much I'll be posting, but check out My cats co-write a blog now! :P I even have pictures of them under their seperate accounts. It's especially fun to write from Chewy's perspective, he's such a spaz!

switching to firefox

Lately, I've been getting more and more pissed at Internet Explorer. First, some websites stop working. Then, some images don't save correctly. Then, most images don't save correctly. Then, certain features of websites don't work, or some web pages are mostly blank. Now, I've decided to start using Firefox already. I don't like IE7 or IE8, and as much as I like Google, I am NOT switching to Chrome. I guess I'm a Firefox person now.


This is the real deal. Try ignoring it, and the first thing you'll notice is having a horrible day starting tomorrow morning . . . and it only gets worse from there."

So began a Facebook message I got. I haven't used facebook for a long time, but I noticed I got a message, so I looked at it through my email.

When I began reading it, I laughed. I should explain why. For two weeks, I anticipated my period, and then this morning it starts. I feel completely shitty, and I have all day, starting this morning. Doesn't that mirror the message in a strange way? How could tomorrow be worse? I mean, I embarassed myself in PE both yesterday and today, I got put in the spotlight in English, I epically failed an Algebra homework (how many is this now? at least I have a nice teacher who lets me redo the awful ones), the boy I like not only stopped showing any signs whatsoever of even slightly liking me, but decided not to go to the dance. I stayed home anyways; I wouldn't have felt like going. My best friend made me feel guilty for skipping jazz band when I felt awful, and I am in constant discomfort. How could tomorrow be worse? LOL.

Well, what it said for me was kinda interesting. It's an interesting take on Saggitarious, which is usually interpreted in a way that is the exact opposite of me. But this made it sound like when you're born could have an effect on your personality.

"SAGITTARIUS - The Promiscuous One
Spontaneous. High appeal. Rare to find. Great when found.. Loves being in long relationships. So much love to give. A loner most of the time. Loses patience easily and will not take crap. If in a bad mood stay FAR away. Gets offended easily and remembers the offense forever. Loves deeply but at times will not show it, feels it is a sign of weakness. Has many fears but will not show it. VERY private person. Defends loved ones with all their abilities. Can be childish often. Not one to mess with. Very pretty. Very romantic. Nice to everyone they meet. Their Love is one of a kind. Silly, fun and sweet. Have own unique appeal. Most caring person you will ever meet! Amazing in bed..!!! Not the kind of person you want to mess with- you might end up crying. 4 years of bad luck if you do not forward."

Spontaneous? Yes. High appeal? No. Rare to find? More than anyone realizes. Not Saggitarious, people like me, I mean. Loves long relationships, lots of love, loner, quick temper, anti-crap personality? Yeppers.

Gets offended easily and remembers forever? Why, yes, I will remember for the rest of my life? Is that a bad thing?... Since when? You know what, screw you. Now back to the interpretation notes:

Loves deeply but often doesn't show it? Well, I have AS, whaddaya expect?! It's not because I think it's weak, though. Very private, defensive of loved ones, sometimes childish: yes. Pretty, no (in my opinion). Romantic, well, more of a hopeless romantic. Amazing in bed - wait, what?! I am a virgin, thank you very much. Well, I am a bit young to be having sex. Not that my reasons have anything to do with age, more with waiting for someone who I would trust that much, who I am also in love with.

Now, that part about that people that mess with me may end up crying - very true. Although I don't intend for them to cry at the time, I suspect I really upset someone. She was bitching about my friend who was right next to her, and I started trying to confuse her, piss her off, and make a good point at the same time. She laughed at me, and the next school day she didn't say anything. I think she may have realized it was an insult eventually. Idiot. Well, she started telling everyone about our conversation, but twisted around the conversation in her favor, and what she claimed my exact words were became a phrase thrown around a lot by her small group of "popular" idiots who are never going to pass high school, and are probably proud of it. She said that phrase to me a few days ago, almost two months after the incident, and I ignored her. I know for a fact she was hoping for a reaction, perhaps in the hopes of comforting herself that I was embarrased about what I said or something. Honestly, at this point, who the hell cares?

One of my friends (the one the girl I just told about was talking shit about) gets bullied a lot, because she does things that make her look weak. I don't let them see my weaknesses, and considering people like me are a common target for bullying and yet I am left alone, I think I'm doing a good job. It's a nice feeling when someone is trying to cut in line, and all you have to do is gently elbow them and they back off because they know you will not hesitate to report anything.

The social side of going to school is so complicated. In one social studies class, one of the things we learned was that in Germany, they used to have a system where the better you did in school, the longer you stayed in school. THAT WOULD BE AWESOME! I could finish school and literally leave the douchebags in the dust. I would probably end up being some type of scientist or teacher, and all the idiots who seem to almost want to fail could just give up and be done with school. That would be heaven for the teachers, smart students, and the dropouts. Only then I suppose the idiots would be multiplying like rabbits while the smarter people work to make their lives better - hey, that's exactly like our system today. Big surprise. I am really hoping 2012 brings a new era of intelligence, something our society lacks.
