*sigh* My head hurts dammit. Leave me alone...!!

Oh... and in a vague and rather meek effort to assert my defiance...


My mother's disapproving of my language again...

And to read a more recently updated journal of mine... http://joony.diaryland.com

...And I think I'm gonna get a different account name and start all over... I really like the idea of starting with a clean slate.

Oh my god! SUMMER! I am so going to kill you! I have the Juanes song stuck in my head!! And it's all your fault. It's like delayed... something or another. You were singing it in class the other day. Grr...

It's actually quite a sad song... if anyone speaks Spanish, or can translate it, here it is-- (well, minus the accents cuz I have no idea how to enter them in)

Esta es la historia de Juan
El nino que nadie amo
Que por las calles crecio
Buscando el amor bajo el sol
Su madre lo abadono
Su padre lo maltrato
Su casa fueun callejon
Su cama un carton su amigo Dios
Juan pregunto por amor
Y el mundo se lo nego
Juan pregunto por honor
Y el mundo le dio deshonor
Juan pregunto por perdon
Y el mundo lo lastimo
Juan pregunto y pregunto
Y el mundo jamas lo escucho

[...and the part that won't get out of my head...]
El solo quiso jugar
El solo quiso sonar
El solo quiso amar
Pero el mundo lo olvido
El solo quiso volar
El solo quiso cantar
El solo quiso amar
Pero el mundo lo olvido

Tan fuerte fue su dolor
Que un dia se lo llevo
Tan fuerte fue su dolor
Que su corazon se apago
Tan fuerte fue su temor
Que un dia solo lloro
Tan fuerte fue su temor
Que un dia su luz se apago

El solo quiso jugar
El solo quiso sonar
El solo quiso amar
Pero el mundo lo ovido

Summer!! You are so dead on Monday.

Mood:sort of bummed.
I hate applying to college... and I haven't even finished a single application. How bad is that?! God... I really don't feel like writing, but I feel like I have an obligation to. So that's it for now. I have a dentist appointment in a little bit. I'll come back later and hopefully write more.

Time:10:02 pm.
Oh shit. I don't know what just happened... ow... I've feeling sharp stabs of pain in the back of my throat/base of my mouth... and in the crown of my head. That's not bad... is it? God, I sure as hell hope not.

Time:9:54 pm.
Mood: rushed.
So I wanted to make myself write a long entry everyday. Well, I was kidding myself. As usual.

I hate making resumes! HELP! Okay, must get back to it. Need more sleep than last night (though last night, I managed to pack in a nice 7 hours).

Well, I shall be comforted in the fact that I did actually post.

Time:9:25 pm.
Mood: complacent.
Things are finally going my way for once. Everything in my life is perfect... or I just don't care about the parts that aren't anymore. I found a certain someone that makes me promise to wake him up at 2 o'clock in the morning... granted, I stayed up until the ungodly hour of 2 o'clock this morning (I got up at 5:30) by choice because I was enjoying talking... even in my semi-comatose state. I have a best friend... we have explored some interesting topics, haven't we? (Yeah, I don't think I need to elaborate... just think... um... what exactly did I dream about a week ago? Yes... that topic.) And my parents... well, they're the same as ever. And I love them still... even respect them a bit... but I truly don't give a shit if they think I'm the biggest failure to disgrace the face of this planet. Truly I don't. You should have seen me last night. I was really past caring about my parents (more specifically, my father) and his bullshit... I think I said something like, I wouldn't give a rat's ass if they fell off the Empire State Building.

So homelife. It's functioning I suppose. Though things were a bit iffy for a while when I called my father an 'asshole' (which he completely deserved, by the way). The day after, the Friday of Senior Prayer day, was absolutely wonderful! I felt so... free. I couldn't even describe it. My first real taste of freedom (in Arizona, at least)... and what I wouldn't give to experience it again! Emily drove us around... (and I gave her crap because she drives like an old lady. You know it's true, Em!)... and I ended up parking the car a couple times for her... mostly for fun. It was very illegal, but who the hell cares? We are both in one piece. And on top of that, we were both extremely giggly and hyper as a result of it (I think we were anyway). I loved it. Thus, if my family is staying in town this weekend (and they better!)... we are doing it again. And we're going to get us free makeovers and try on prom dresses. And hopefully I'll look good so I can send pictures to Stu. He doesn't quite understand why we're so obsessed with prom... but it's so fun!

Okay, since I really don't have much homework tonight, I'm going to ramble about the teachers... (I lied, I actually do have homework... late philosophy homework, but I'm not feeling any motivation, so I'm going to talk about teachers instead).

Mr. Summers. Definitely not as bad as I thought he would be. So far no inappropriate jokes... although there have been rather stupid ones that we laughed at because we thought they were so pathetic (Frank was like... "Did you think of those before class?"... it was very amusing!). His class... I dunno. I just have to motivate myself to keep up. And motivation is at an all-time low right now. So... it'll be interesting, at least... I don't think I really mind it as my first class everyday.

Mr. DiStefano. Well, what is there to say about Mr. DiStefano. Very unique dude. I like him a lot. I hate the fact that I actually have homework in his class... and a test on Wednesday that I could probably be studying for. Hmm... low-key guy. I dunno. He's just cool. And that's about all I can do to describe him... pathetic, I know.

Mr. Austin. Um... sometimes I think the man is a raving lunatic... sometimes I think he's hilarious... sometimes I'm just indifferent to him, I guess. He's a bit of an odd ball. Very helpful... but... he goes about it in a different way. Reminds me eerily of a male version of Mrs. Nejman. I think I like the man... but my instincts are telling me I'll be ready to slaughter him when I start getting some grades back in his class.

Mrs. Lopez. Love the class. Love the way she acts around the AP girls (me, Kelsey, Julie, and Brenda, in particular). She's very much like Mrs. Weiland... She loves her AP students but is pretty indifferent to her normal students, I guess? Anyway, I enjoy it because I can text Stu during class without worrying about being caught.

Ms. Boehm. I dunno. She's nice to me. That counts for something... maybe. But all teachers tend to be nice to me... whether I deserve it or not is something entirely different. The class... I hate the class right now. We're designing bus shelters, and let me tell you right now, I am so sick of making random sketches... and I really don't give a shit about a dumb ass bus shelter in the front of Xavier. ...Oh come on, can you blame me?

Sra. Gutierrez. She's so nice! Like... I'm actually doing my work in the class because I feel like I can't let her down. Very encouraging (always saying... "Muy bien! Punto!"). Um... understanding as well... she let me turn in my first ensayo (essay) late for full credit. Anyway, I felt like an idiot, so I'm never turning in anything late ever again. Um... the actual class... I've gotten in way over my head. Like, you have absolutely no idea how screwed I am for the AP exam... ok... definitely not going to think about that now.

Mr. Wyman. *Sigh* Such a nice guy. (For now at least) such a boring class! Um... yeah, I don't think I really need to describe him. He's so... adorable... like he acts like a little boy in a way. He thought of Frapaccino Friday, and for that, he already has five stars in my book (it really doesn't hurt that he likes Harry Potter, as well!)

Oh my god. I've never written an entry that long except when I was upset (and I'm not). New record for me! Yipee. Now I have to go shower. My parents have been bothering me for the past twenty minutes about going to take my shower (I'm kinda curious when they're going to realize I'm not in the third grade and really don't have to be told when I should take my showers). Anyway, I'm off for now. Me thinks that I'm taking my shower... doing the Philosophy questions very haphazardly and I will be off to sleep hmm... before 10, if all goes as planned (which it rarely does... so, in reality, it should be about 11ish... oh fuck. Maybe I'll just go to sleep after my shower and get up early... like 4... and exercise and crap... and do philosophy? Hmm... that sounds much nicer!)

Anyway! Night world.

I've just rediscovered my livejournal account... I sort of forgot that I was supposed to be using this. (Sorry Em!) I always feel like an idiot after I've neglected a journal for like 2 months. Makes me want to start all over again.

PS I'm currently looking for better user pics.

I actually ought to update this thing more often...

I sort of feel bad starting up again on a bad note, but anyone who knows me knows that I hardly write at all when I'm happiest. My dad is the world's biggest asshole. Seriously.

I went to sleep 'late' last night... let's see, about 11 or so? And I was supposed to get up at 4:30 this morning. Let's just say that it didn't happen. Granted, I did manage to sit up in bed at about 4:15 ish, but I fell asleep after that. (Can you blame me?) The next thing I knew it was 5:40. Can we say that my dad was not happy about that?

To make matters worse, I drove... er... a little bit over the speed limit (like 5-10 over) and my dad yelled at me the entire way there, telling me that I should have woken up earlier and I'm supposed to follow the speed limit and that it's called a limit for a reason... etc. etc. etc. I swear, if I go deaf anytime soon, it'll be all his fault.

So, anyway, tennis this morning sucked because he was a fucking brick wall. I swear he didn't move unless I hit the ball within five feet of him. And besides that my nail bent past the quick (if that made any sense) and I have a bruise under my nail. And besides all that, I didn't have breakfast. Today's really not a good day. Oh, and did I mention that my dad's officially not talking to me? *rolls eyes* I really ought to care that he isn't... but I don't.

On a random note, school starts... on Friday. Yipee. (That was sarcastic, people.)

PS If you're reading this Stu, think of some more er... quality rap that I would like. I'm getting sick of listening to the same songs. :)

Subject:First Day of Summer School
Time:7:01 pm.
Mood: amused.
Anyone want to see a really cute picture of me? Well, here it is...

PictureCollapse )

6:40 - 7:00 am :: I looked around for Emily, who said she was going to be at school at 6:30, but wasn't. And when she eventually came, I was already playing Phase 10 with Seena and Jessie (who is no longer acting distant!). Sonya made fun of me because I was playing Phase 10, again. She doesn't understand though, that little obsessions such as these die just as quickly as they are acquired (did that make any sense?).

7:00 - 8:50 am :: Pre-AP Physics started. We went over the syllabus and the dress code (which said "no hip-hugger, low rise jeans" -- um, exactly where can I buy jeans that aren't?). I think we went over the fundamental SI units as well. And XCP changed the grading scale from 93-100 (as an A) to 90-100, which didn't help me at all because last year is when I needed that grade change! Stupid school.

8:50 - 9:10 am :: Break! Boring too, because Ashley is still ignoring me... granted, I'm not exactly doing anything to rectify the situation. We talked about jean sizes and... boys? I think. I wasn't really paying attention.

9:10 - 10:55 am :: More about SI units and I think there was a plug in here for Rio Salado registration. Emily W. brought up a good question -- is he getting paid by Rio Salado? Sure he made a very good case for Rio, but I really don't want to take it. So there. We learned more about units and conversions. Gads, I didn't think he was ever going to shut up about conversions. We went through at least 7 examples. At least. I didn't even need an example!

10:55 - 11:10 am :: A break even less eventful than the last. Jessie's holding a big swim party though! I'll have to ask when my parents are in a better mood.

11:10 - 12:30 am :: We went over different kinds of graphs and their 'mathematical models' -- fancy phrase for their 'general equations.' Did a little activity relating the circumference to the diameter... and we played with graphs on the computers. Worked on homework for a bit during class. Overall, the day was boring. And I hope it gets more challenging eventually. *crosses fingers*

And I really, really want to see a movie. Perhaps I can persuade my mother to let Emily and I go? If Emily's mom will drop us off, maybe my mom can drop Emily off? I don't know, we'll see, I guess.

Oh! After summer school :: got a haircut! I'm not exactly sure what I think of it... maybe if I could figure out how to style it, the cut would look better...

PS Anyone want to get me a paid account? *bats eyelashes*

PPS Amber, I hope you don't mind if I change my 'name'...?

Subject:A Needed Update
Time:6:51 pm.
Mood: accomplished.
Look! I'm updating! I figured this would be more fun than working on the Arizona History packet. Come to think of it... anything would be better than working on the packet. I've enjoyed my three day summer. I go back to school tomorrow! Pre-AP/Honors Physics, here I come! *groan*

I read Kathryn Reiss' Time Windows which was surprisingly good, considering I've thought young adult fiction beneath me for some time. And I reread Gail Carson Levine's Ella Enchanted and have officially declared myself a Gail C. Levine addict. I think I'm going to buy some more of her books (both Reiss and Levine). I do remember reading Dreadful Sorry a long long time ago, and I think I remember it being good. I hope so, anyway, because I think I'm going to be buying that book soon. And I won the auction for a hardback copy (I know, I'm insane -- but it HAD to be hardback) of the Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. Yipee. So that should come soon, and then I can bury myself in a book again! Something I haven't done for a while. After I read that and Lost in a Good Book, I think I'm going to reread the Amy Tan books.

And then, after I manage to satisfy my appetite for books, I'll do the packets and the summer reading (starting with the "Norman Conquests", since I already started it -- I stopped when I got to the part where Anne -- or Sarah? -- shagged Norman on the rug -- it was only 20 pages into the book!).

And my new addiction (besides reading) is now Phase 10!! Great game. Those of you that don't have it should get it and play! Es muy divertido.

Anyway, am off to call Emily.

I'm not wallowing anymore (yay!)... but I have to run to dinner. TWO more days left as a Junior and then comes finals... anyway, gotta go!

I've been busy and I'm currently wallowing in self-pity because I've come to realize that I really am a bitch. I'm not really talking to anyone right now... but I'll be back before you miss me.

Time:5:10 pm.
Mood: excited.
I never thought I'd be saying this, but YES! I got a 59.24% on my Chemistry final (ie: Practice AP Exam...). That was the third highest grade in my class! Go me. And I only did 49 out of 75 questions!! I rule. Okay, anyway, the real thing is tomorrow. According to my teacher, I would have gotten a 4 or a 5. Need I say how happy I am?

Okay, am off to study Net Ionics.

Time:6:54 pm.
I got my permit on Friday. Drove for 1.5 hours on Sunday on the 87 (a highway) going about 65-70. Not bad for my first day. Anyway, off to study Chemistry.
