Oh well, not like anyone pays attention. I've been procrastinating the whole day so I might as well keep it up.
I don't even know where to start; I guess school, since there's been quite a lot of it. Things got pretty intense near the end of the year, with AP and the college course, but I managed. I got my scores last week for AP, and although I'm a little confused I can't really complain about them; I got a 4 on English Language & Composition and a 5 on US History. I'm confused as to how I got a 5 on APUSH instead of English, since I feel I'm much better at English than history, but whatever.
I've taken the ACT three times, and two of the times I took it with writing, and got a 6 and then 8 (out of 12). And that really just made me laugh because I get that on the writing but somehow 36 on the English & Reading sections? Whaaaaatever~ Those essays are dumb, 30 minutes with an ultra-bland topic, pfff. Plus I'm finding out colleges don't really care about the writing score, specifically the ones with essays (the ones I'm more worried about), because they figure out your writing based on your essay instead. So...yeah... Part of me is all confident I can take the dumb thing again and do better - the dumb essay aside - but at the same time, I know 34, 35 superscored, doesn't really "give me a reason" I guess to take it again. I'm not so motivated to do better that I'll pay for it again and waste a good 3 hours and wake up early on the weekend.
For summer, I've had five AP classes to do homework for. It's been a bit hectic, because then on top of it I like to procrastinate and I have other "projects" to work on... I got German done right away, then World history, and then most of Bio, so then I'm taking some "time off" now for a bit, and then in August I'll finish the silly little projects or whatever for Bio, read the book for English Lit, and then do the studying for Calculus. I'm also hoping to get, or at least start, my private pilot's license, because hopefully I'll be able to get a scholarship and it'll help just make that whole process a bit les expensive, whether I do it as a part of college or not. It's pretty busy this summer, with the AP and then that and then, starting tomorrow I'll have some tennis lessons, and eventually school-tennis starts, and then I'm at the zoo again, and on top of that I'm also working on college essays and applications, of which I've got quite a few... It's wild.
I've been working on a cross-stich project for almost a year now. I'm hoping when it's done I an make it a pillow. I'm finally done with the main pattern, so there's just to border left. I want to finish before school because once that starts I don't think I'll have any time for it, hopefully I'll be able to, the border isn't a whole lot... I like this patter quite a bit. It's a bunch of flowers done on black fabric so they stand out nice.
Bullyfish died a little while back. It was kinda sad, I've had him so long... So then it was just the catfish and Murdoch and Nougat & Sparticus, but then I got two snails, Sir Charles Hernandez and Julio, and another Phantom because Nougat was really harassing Sparticus, who I named Key Gal. A few days ago though, Sir Charles had been looking kinda sick and wasnt sticking to the glass and had been sitting still for a while, but I hadnt checked in a few days whether he was alive, and I guess he wasn't because then Murdoch died... I felt really awful. I liked Murdoch a lot and it was my fault for not checking...
I went to prom. I went alone and found a table to sit at awkwardly the entire time with some kids I get along with. It would've been a lovely event if I hadn't been by myself. I asked my friend beforehand if he planned on going, he said no, and suggested we could do something else together instead. We haven't and I'm not sure we will. I haven't had the chance to bring it up with him because there's either always someone else around or I just don't feel it's the right thing to talk about at the given point in time. I haven't seen him in a while, and I won't even be able to talk to him for another week and a half or so because he's been out of town since Saturday. It's really lonely and it's only been three days. I'm hoping that by making myself unnecessarily busy will distract me enough to make the time go by. I don't like wishing for summer to go by faster, I really really need the time off, but...
I went to a Linkin Park concert a little while ago, which was pretty cool. I wasn't really in a good mood though, which really sucked because I like them a lot and I wish I couldve gotten more, I don't know, hyped about it, like I normally do at concerts, but... It was a rough day. Pretty soon I'm going to see Breaking Benjamin, which I'm hoping I can psych myself up for because I've wanted to see them for a long time. I've just got some dumb emotional things to get over to be able to psych up I guess. My friend and I were going to go to a Nickelback concert together (ikr), but then the singer needed surgery so it got cancelled and I was really kinda sad about that because I had been looking forward to it for a while... We planned it a while ago, and it took a lot to convince him to come, but... Knowing him he probably would've cancelled the day before anyway. In fall there's going to be a concert with Neighbourhood and Bad Suns, and I really like both of them but there not coming very close and of course the closest ones are on weekdays... Plus the venues are standing-only and kind of expensive... Which kinda sucks, because like I said I like both of them a lot so both of them /together/, like....yeah. Meh. Maybe I'll find a way to go anyway, who knows.
Friday there was a Muse concert on TV, which was pretty great. They didn't do quite a few that I like, but then again they didn't do any that I don't like, so I guess...yeah. I'm hoping if they do come nearby they play more than they did on the TV one, but who knows. I like their new album quite a bit; not disappointed, that's for sure.
I haven't really drawn anything. Over spring break I did do new refs for Ichabod, Zack, and Wolfgang, but Wolfgang's actually still just a sketch and then I haven't posted the other two of course, so... I did draw a design for my poetry group though. It's like, a phoenix coming from a pen, with the words "With Ink We Set The World Ablaze". There's quite the story to go with those shirts, but I want to go to bed soon and no one reads this anyway so I'll leave it out. To put it bluntly it was a mess. As for writing, I've got the third chapter of the rewritten DSRA done, and then I've read it over a few times. I had an idea for ch4 at one point but I forgot what it was. Hopefully I'll get it finished before school. Among all the other things I'm doing. Poetry, along with Entropy, I've got three other poems now: Black Hole, Reptile, and Screenager. I still need to post Reptile and Screenager. Reptile got 29/30 and Screenager got I think 29.2, and then Black Hole managed a perfect 30, which kind of surprised me but yeah yay.
There's a good thing that came out of that whole mess. Which it's been over a year now... It's an easy day to remember. This year my friend and I were together somewhere so that was a good distraction. I brought it up to him and we talked a little about it.
I got Toby a nice new terrarium. It's a lot longer than his old one; I figured he was cramped in the little 10g so I found a good sale on a 20g long. It's taken him some time to get used to since he's so afraid of everything, but I think he's okay now.
I've been trying to make some money over summer by golf caddying but so far it's really just been a waste of time. Like, yeah when I do get out I get, so far, $30-40 for 2-4hrs, but then take into account all the days I've shown up and sat around doing nothing and getting nothing for 2-3hrs and it's really awful. Considering I've only gotten out three times after showing up who knows how many...yeah. I don't like it and wish I had applied for a job somewhere else instead, where I actually get something for my time, which I'm kind of low on this summer.
So...yeah. I guess I'm done now. I wanted to go to bed an hour ago, which was really early but that was the point, but oh well. Nobody read this anyway.
