Last time....I swear this time

But I had to write, because this is important. Remember that band I like, Blue Sky Roadster? They changed their name to Single and I got mad cus it wasn't as cool. But I still like them, and are on their mailing list for upcoming shows. Got an email...

One show at The Hotel Utah in San Francisco. Right, cus I would be able to go to California just to see them.

Second show: (directly from email)
"and. . .

AHHHHHHH!!!!! Why the FUCK can't I live in fucking California (preferably somewhere near Sacramento?) GRRR!! Hi, they are opening for my fucking favorite band! I WANT TO GO!!!!! Shit, what I wouldn't give to go see them open for MB20. I really like Single. They have really good songs. They are going to be big. And they are fucking opening for my favorite band in the whole fucking world!!!

I apologize for the swearing, but I'm so *grsadfakjsdhfalks* right now! Angry/Excited/Jealous/WhinyThatICan'tGo/Annoyed. Fuck it. Blah......

My head hurts. It's a headache worse than the ones I was getting last week. I took Advil, and I've been drinking water, and I ate something. It still won't go away.

I'm really tired. Sleep would fix this. A little nap might help my head too.

But I can't sleep, because I have homework. To do my homework though, I need to go buy packs of loose-leaf paper, and graph paper. However, I don't have enough money to go buy this stuff because Amanda borrowed money for lunch (and will pay me back tomorrow), and Caitlin never reimbursed me for the movies I rented. And life sucks right now.
Other than that, I'm doing okay. School wasn't too bad. Insanely long for the 15 minutes I was in each class. Yeah, this year is going to be great.

Physics. Lots of friends in the class, so *yay*. Mr. Bruss is a funny man. Not that he tells jokes all that well, but his mannerisms are easy to laugh at. Entertainment in the mornings.

English. I really enjoy Mr. Wolf. Our first activity...listening to "Pink Houses" by Mellencamp. Love this song. Love this class. My only good friends in it are Sam (she was in my english class last year, which rocked), and Charlie (but he wasn't sitting near Sam and I).

US History. I hate history classes about as much as I hate science. Probably more. Mr. Heerman seems like another very laughable person. Carly is in my class, so that's good. At least I'll be done with my two least favorite classes by 10:30.

Free. No complaints here. And, Allie has it free, so yippy!

Chorale. Love chorus, love to sing. 101 people in this class. It's the biggest class in the school. It's a little chaotic, but it will be fun. A bunch of my friends are in chorus with me, and Akers is the best. She's so much fun, and a really great teacher.

Theatre. I am *so* excited about this class. Only about 20 people (like the smallness). All the not-to-serious-about-theatre people drop it after first year, so this year will be fun. I know every person in the class. I might be one of the only ones. Half the class was in my 1,2 class last year, and the others I know from fall play this year or other places. Very comfortable setting, and I love Carl. He's the absolute best teacher/director anyone could ask for.

French. Oh god. 32 people in my class. We will never be able to concentrate or learn anything. Have Madame Wolf again, and she's funny. Theatre always gives me this strange energy, so I'm always hyper in French (I had french after theatre last year too.)

Calculus. Ew. Math. Have Gasper, and I had him in 8th grade. He came to my Junior High, because there were 12 of us in advanced math, Geometry. And, Amanda's in my class, which rocks. We will try and have fun, despite the fact that it's a math class.

Outdoor Adventure with Zima. Mr. Zima is the best ever. Very fun guy, and I have a bunch of friends in the class, so it should be good. We are even going to have a mountain biking unit, which sounds like it will be really fun. We start in the pool next week, which sucks, but then I get it over with. Besides, it's mostly canoing and kayaking anyway.

That was my day.

After, we went to lunch at Panera, then rented movies and came to my house to watch them (Dude, Where's My Car and Recess: School's Out. Don't seem to go well together? I enjoyed them both).

Now I'm trying to do homework, but getting distracted by my lack of loose-leaf paper and, of course, my computer. When mommy gets home in about 15 minutes, maybe I'll ask for some money for school supplies, then stop by my sister's apartment. I can do my homework there, and I don't feel like staying home. Maybe my headache is really cabin fever (but I've had it since 7th period, French). I need to go now.

    The school is too familiar. It feels like we never left.

Bed Time

I should have been in bed an hour ago, so I could get sleep. I hate school interfering with sleep.

Finished my homework at Ci's apartment. Also had dinner over there, cus my parents went out with my aunt. It was fun. Part of my homework was actually fun too. I had to write a couple responses on "Pink Houses" for English, so once I got through the shity US History crap, it was smooth sailing. I like english so much better than social studies or science. Why couldn't I just take 3 english or writing classes instead of boring ones. Who needs Calculus? I can see needing algebra, and it's a stretch, but Geometry can be helpful too. But Calculus? I think not. If I had total control over my classes, I would have all fine arts and english (go figure, that's what I want to do with my life). You mean I'm making intelligent choices about classes connecting to future career? No (sarcasm).

Anywho. Got back from Ci's and read a really good slash (or at least I liked it). Good plot, in my opinion. Here: [Celebrity] Read, enjoy.

Now, I need sleep. Full-time school tomorrow (and for the next 9 months). *sigh* The never ending cycle....
