Today when I went to pick up my research paper, so that I could actually, you know, revise it, I learned that it has apparently vanished off the face of the earth. The combined powers of SantiWall have absolutely no idea what happened to it; Santillan told me to email it to her and she would read over it tonight. Which... okay, I actually saw this coming, because on Monday when I asked about it (after Waller told me she didn't have my paper, so ask Santillan) Santillan wasn't actually sure where it was. I rather think that the God of Research Papers mistook it for an offering, much like the God of Art did to my ruler (and most of my erasers, and every pencil sharpener I've ever owned, among other things).

Santillan also said that she wasn't entirely certain that my paper would need that much revising, because I'm a strong writer. I already know that, but it's nice to be told every now and then, especially since I've never really talked over any of my writing with Santillan. Regardless, I'm looking forward to her suggestions. I was actually kind of looking forward to a paper copy with red pen marks everywhere, but I'll take what I can get, I guess. (I don't like seeing red marks on my maths tests; I love seeing them on my essay drafts. Mostly because red marks mean that I can improve, which I am all about when it comes to writing.)

I have fifty-three questions left to answer about The Great Gatsby, and I think I might end up typing out what I already have and then just typing the rest, because I really don't feel like writing it all out by hand. /: (I've also had the questions for a week, so of course I wait until the day before they're due to do them.) I don't think I'm going to finish reading it, but I liked what I did read. I also think I'm one of the few people who didn't get a book in which some previous asshole owner had written ending spoilers on the inside cover... not that it matters, because the first thing I did after reading the first section was spoil the ending for myself, lol.

Some lazy fun stuff, and then English homework, I think. When I get back from GS tonight, maybe Santillan will have finished with my essay.

Half an hour and twenty-four windows later, I'm not entirely certain that I won't end up throwing up sometime before I leave. /:

Presentations are, quite possibly, the bane of my existence. People who think they know me, "Oh wow, she's so good, she's not even nervous at all!" People who actually know me know that it's exactly the opposite. I've gotten better about it, but I really do get so nervous before a presentation, especially a major one like this. Usually, my hands are shaking the entire time; I doubt this will be any different. (My voice usually doesn't shake, though. Except for that one time in French class when it did.) Sometimes it doesn't hit me right away, usually because I'm in denial; this time, I'm not so lucky. /hands shaking

The only real reason why I can manage to get through things like this is to pretend that it totally doesn't matter, like, in any way. If I don't take it seriously, it's easier to do. I'm also basically putting on an act, whether I know my lines or not (in this case it's more like not; I know my lines for the skit and my slides have an outline of what I'm going to say, but there are still a lot of things I have to remember. Like about how the Magical Queer character type applies, basically, to all minorities, and to mention Bury Your Gays, and that All Bis Are Promiscuous applies to gays, too, and... yeah, okay, stop spazzing, self.)

I've got some Metroid Metal on pretty loud in an attempt to psych myself up. I don't think it's really working /: Maybe if I find some really awesome video on Youtube or something /coughI'mOnAShipcough

And then everything seemed to turn out okay, though I won't really be able to relax until after the presentation. I know what I'm doing, at least, and I know that I can do it. It's the others that I'm a little worried about. I have like four lines, some narration, and part of a gag ("He's an amazing, caring individual!" "Like a boss." "He's determined, compassionate, intelligent!" "Like a boss." Guess which part I am.), as well as two slides that basically amount to explaining tropes. (No, really; I even used trope names off TV Tropes.)

Also, the List of Things I Will Never Draw Again now includes castles, because eleven chimneys and eighty-five windows. I still have twenty-four of them left to do. I'll do them in the morning. If I actually get up when I'm supposed to, it should be fine.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about either presentation; it's true that I'm not worried about the French one, but I am worried about the AP one. We never did get to run through the entire thing; when I left, the powerpoint wasn't even entirely finished. (Of course, my part was, so...) Our skit is about five or six minutes long, and the powerpoint is... kind of long, so it should be able to take up the time we need it to (plus there are videos, and Neeth has a posterboard of... some kind of statistics, I don't really know what). My concern is that we'll end up running over our allotted time... not that we can actually run over, since we get cut off at twenty-five  minutes no matter what, but getting cut off before we're finished would kind of suck.

Also, I ate the most amazing asiago cheese bagel earlier today. It was amazing and delicious. Amazingly delicious, even.

Today I came to the realisation that I don't care what Neeth wants me to do with my portion of our project, because it's not hers. It's not her material and she's not presenting it; I am. So I'm going to do what I want to do, and not worry about what she wants me to do.

It would have been nice if it hadn't taken her pissing me off so much that I had to just leave the room so I wouldn't make a scene to realise this, much less if today weren't the day before our presentation, but I guess I'll take what I can get. Maybe I cry when I'm really angry because it's my body's way of making my mind realise that, whatever it is, it is so not worth the drama and the stress. Of course, I'd like it better if I had some other way of realising that, because crying sucks and I don't like doing it, but I guess it just can't be helped. I've calmed down a lot since this morning, at least, and being at home for a few hours before having to deal with Neeth again should help, too.

I'm pretty sure she spent brunch whining at Santillan about me (well, it helps that I was in the room at the time) but I don't even care at this point. If she tries to passive-aggressively whine at me like before, she's going to be totally screwed, because however negatively she thinks I've been acting toward her, I've been polite so far. If she pisses me off again, that's going to change.

(Most of the time I think that horoscopes have my personality totally wrong, but then things like this happen and I really do start acting like a stereotypical Aries.)

Anyway, twenty minutes for slides, and then forty minutes on castle drawing, because I really do need to finish that. It looks relatively decent so far, but I need to put in a lot more detail, and I'm going to try to shade it, a little bit.

I really dislike people who bitch about you being indecisive, then force you to make a decision, then bitch about the decision you made under pressure (because it's not the one they wanted you to make). Like just now, when my brother's all "Are you coming to dad's with me are you coming to dad's with me" and I tell him, "I don't know, I have to take a shower before I do anything," and he replies, "Don't lag, I have to go," so I tell him, "Fine, then just go without me," and then he started complaining. If he'd just waited ten minutes for me to take a damn shower, I'd have gone with him, but noooo, we can't have that.

I also really dislike stupid people who act like they're such hot shit, when in reality they're complete and utter dumbasses and the world would very much like it if they'd just stfu. They tend to be the same people who manage to talk for ten minutes straight without actually saying anything, are always, "Why do you have to make everything an argument?" when you correct them and also always have to get in the last word. Mostly I dislike people like that because they're really annoying, but also because they bring out my inner deadpan snarker and I have to make an effort to not respond to anything they say. (Like the kid who sits next to me in French class. Seriously, someone needs to just duct tape his mouth shut or something.)

I'm going to San Francisco tomorrow! My group's going to interview people for an intro video for our presentation. (The one that we really need to work on, because presentations start on the eighth and we... have not started. Like, at all.) And then I'm going out there again on Wednesday, for an AP field trip. I'm looking forward to both, but of course the first one's causing drama, or more accurately, dad's causing drama because of it. I'm not even going to elaborate; thinking about it's pissing me off.

In cheerier news, I finally got La Tale working again! So I've been grinding a bit; right now it's mostly for cash so I can buy something from the fancy shop (the cheapest item in the two that I can access is 100k), but also for levels, I guess; it's just that when I grind for levels it's really slow going, because my attack and defence are pretty low (since I'm playing a wizard) so I can't grind in level-appropriate areas without dying or using up a bunch of healing items. I get decent XP from quests, though, so it's not all bad. It... would probably also help if I weren't soloing, lol. I'm too antisocial to form a party, anyway /:

I think I'm going to go back to grinding until I figure out just wtf is going on today. |:

ALLERGIES. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS. I don't know if it's nervousness over the test today or the fact that I couldn't breathe that kept waking me up early this morning. Probably both.

Also, there are minor things that bug me. Mispronouncing 'nuclear'. (Mispronouncing a lot of things, actually. Especially things in Japanese.) And also getting simple facts wrong. So when I hear things like that on the news, my rage button lights up a little bit.

I am so excited for Doctor Who tomorrow night. Weeping Angels hell yes. I'm also so excited for Iron Man 2. Going to see it tonight, hell yes! And that thought is probably the only thing that's going to get me through the AP test today if these stupid allergies keep up. It's May, damn it, I should be fine now! (Actually, that's a lie - May flowers and all that. But still!)

I'll ask Liz if there are binder checks today, but I think there are. Whatever, I can grade my two binders and then get the hell out of there. (Most of the other tutors grade three. Most of the other tutors also sit at the other table.) Last half hour of third block, thirty-five minutes of lunch, first half hour of fourth block. I can totally do that.

And there's always the invincible spell if I think I need it. And even if I don't need it, I should probably invoke it anyway. ...I should probably fix up the seal key and bring it today...

Feeling better; I think the allergy meds are working. I'll take a little bit more before I leave, just to be sure. I'll kick this test's ass! It won't be a curb-stomp battle like the exit exam was (and probably like the AP English Language test will be, lol) but damn it, I will fight this test and I will win. (Better cast some buffs to be sure. Lol.)

Also there are nine friendship bracelets on my right arm. I think I'm approaching scenester numbers, haha. (Yeah, the allergy meds are... definitely kicking in.)

Hooooome. /collapse. I got to carry a box of candles home, too. It wasn't very heavy, at least. I'm giving myself an hour to wind down before I start cramming, 'cause five straight hours is going to suck. I mean, it would if I hit the books straight away, but I'm not, so... right, I think I forgot where I was going with that.

At least it doesn't matter if my attention starts to wane at the end this time, lol.

Thirteen chapters (~250 pages) in four hours! I bet I can do fifteen in five. (Well, that's what I'm doing tonight, so I'm going to have to.) Craaaaaaamming /fistpump. At least I'm not joining the ~cramming session~ tonight at Mountain Mike's. I mean, packing ~30 students into a private room at a pizza place and expecting studying to go on? Yeah, I think that's a little idealistic. I'll stick to reading frantically whilst listening to jazz. :9 Fragrance of Dark Coffee, go~!

I make friendship bracelets periodically. I'm wearing eight of them right now, and I made them all. Usually I just tie stripes, because they're really easy and really fast and if I don't have anything to do in trig class I can finish a whole one, usually. But every now and then, I think, oh hey, maybe I should tie some chevrons! I mean, I know I hated doing it the last time I did it, but surely it can't be that bad, right? So then I start tying chevrons, and yes, it was that bad, and yes, it still is. Doesn't mean I'm not going to do the next four (well, three and a half, I'm halfway through the first one) in chevrons.

Also, occasionally very strange things happen. This morning is one such time. I checked my email, noticed there was one in my facebook folder, and thought it would just be, like, a page suggestion, because I get those from Liz all the time. But no. It was not a page suggestion. It was a friend request. From a girl I haven't seen since sixth grade. From a girl I haven't wanted to see since sixth grade, since she was a major bully empowered by being the daughter of the day care director, and I attribute a lot of my self-esteem issues to her.  Do I want her to be my friend on facebook? It's not like I trash her or anything; I don't talk about her. I don't even really think about her. I kind of forgot about her. Out of necessity, mostly, and because why would I think about someone who no longer has any effect on my life?

So this friend request was a little jarring, because I wasn't expecting it. I feel like I should just click ignore, but at the same time, I feel like it needs some thought. Would she even care if I accepted it? Would she even care if I rejected it? Would it even matter if I accepted it?

I'm overthinking this.

Today, as usual, I spent procrastinating working. (I actually got a little bit of work done, but not very much.) Most of the procrastination time was spent reading Cardcaptor Sakura~ I love that manga, it's so cute. Also Cardcaptors was one of my first anime... um, even though the English dub was pretty bad. (Though, I'm watching some of it now, and it's not actually that bad. I mean, I will never forgive whatever company did it for what they did to the names, but the actual voice acting isn't that bad.) I actually like some of those voices better than in The Sealed Card (Michael McConnohie as Fujitaka? That sounds kind of weird. Kirk Thornton as Touya? Yeah, no.), but most of those are pretty decent, too. It's an excellent cast, even if it doesn't sound all that great ^_^; Well, it's not that bad. I mean, Johnny Bosch did Eriol~ So obviously that's okay.

I had something else to post about, some kind of really deep discussion-type thing, but I forgot most of it, and I think if I tried rewording what I remember now it would just be... weird. /: I can say that I really haven't made progress on my paper, and I doubt I'm going to have it done by tomorrow (even though I had all break to work on it... oops). It's proving really difficult to write, and I don't like that. There are ideas in my head, but I can't make them come out the way I want them to, and it's really annoying me. Writing isn't supposed to be hard for me. I guess it's... I know what the big picture is supposed to look like, but when it comes to the details, I can't get them down. Which is what plagues my normal writing, not my essays. Then again, most of my essays are 'this is bs this is bs this is bs' but I feel like I can't do that with this one. This one feels too important to just bs my way through. ...plus I've never faked my way through seven pages, let alone fifteen...

Maybe I'll try again in the morning. If I get up a little earlier, I might even be able to finish it. It's not like I've never written essays that near the due date, anyway... and I did five pages in an hour once, that wasn't that hard, and I only have to write six now. (I've got one page done, anyway...) I'm still way behind on the reading and the IDs but... I should be able to catch up on those easily enough, I think hope think.

...mmm, Clow Reed-centric fic. I think I might just have to find more~ :D Or maybe Eriol this time, since I read all that Clow-centric fic this morning. While procrastinating. .///.;

I really want to go see Star Trek: THE EXHIBITION at the Tech Museum. It closes on April 11 x: Maybe for my birthday. I think if I do get to go, I might just cry a little bit. Because I'll be walking through history. I'll be right in the middle of over 40 years of space and dreams. And it'll be amazing. (Okay, so I cried a little when I watched the bonus behind-the-scenes on Star Trek XI where the actors were all talking about how honoured they felt to be working on Star Trek and to be working with Nimoy, and where Nimoy talked about how honoured he felt that they asked him to reprise his role as Spock, and how amazing it was that Star Trek had lasted for so long and... yeah, I cried.)

Also, I forget if I've said this already, but I'll say it anyway. The other day (like two weeks ago, at this point) I was talking about FFXIII, and Margaret was all, "You know, I really don't like the new Final Fantasies." I asked why, and I got the worst excuse I've ever heard for disliking a video game: "There are guns in it now!" No lie, I actually "..."ed. I actually had no idea what to say. I mean - there have been guns in FF since at least VII, if not earlier (Tactics doesn't count, since it came out the same year as VII, and I'm pretty sure VI didn't but I can't be too sure, because that's the one I'm least familiar with. Well, that one and V.)

It's almost like there's this huge gap between VI and VII. In a way, there is - it's 2D v 3D. What works in 2D does not work in 3D, and what works in 3D does not work in 2D. But it feels like even the stories are completely different - even moreso than Final Fantasy stories usually are.

Or maybe it's just all in my head. I don't really know.

I'm not sure if I'm going out to dad's tonight or not. I don't actually want to, but if I don't then I'm stuck at home reading The Grapes of Wrath. Now, I know, I know - The Grapes of Wrath is apparently an amazing book. Everybody I've heard talk about it loves it to pieces. Even Sam likes it, and, as Sam has impeccable taste, I usually trust his judgement. I haven't even started reading it, and I am most certainly not looking forward to it. It's not because I've heard bad things about it. No, it's because it's Steinbeck.

I have not had pleasant experiences with Steinbeck, though my only real experience with Steinbeck is The Pearl. And I hated The Pearl. (Mind, it may not have been so bad if Mrs Haynes hadn't been my English teacher, but that's a different discussion altogether.) I didn't have to read Of Mice and Men in freshman year, and I'm not complaining. Other people are complaining, because "omg you're so luckyyyyy" so I don't think I missed anything important. Of course, I may have actually liked it, had I been required to read it; more importantly, I may be less reluctant to read this one now. But whatever; can't change the past, and I'm not too keen to, either.

Also, today there was an AP Naptime. There were five minutes in APUSH today where two-third of the class had their heads down on the desk. It was amazing, and those were probably the five most refreshing minutes of not-sleep I've had in quite a while.

Things I have done today:

 - IDs. Granted, only chapter twenty-three, and only the first eight (well, those are the ones due tomorrow...), but I mean, come on! World War I! That's awesome! And I can always catch up over the weekend.
 - Learned that there is, in fact, an immortal creature on this earth. That is so cool.
 - Bought the newest Vampire Diaries book, The Return: Shadow Souls. I cannot wait to start reading! :DDDD
 - Learned that .hack//LINK is out in Japan already. CC2, Bamco, you guys better announce that it hits America soon, or I might just die. Die. from disappointment.
 - Both lost and found my Pokéwalker. Yeah, all in one day. I wonder if I can catch a Nidoran♀
 - Taken painkillers for cramps without eating. So I didn't have wicked bad cramps, except I had wicked bad stomach cramps. ...yeah. Great idea, self.
 - Written an essay about the wonders of homework in ~35 minutes. APE essay-writing skillz, you are awesome.

Today has been a pretty good day and I feel pretty good. Tomorrow I need to get a meeting with Waller about my group's thesis, so I can figure out how to fix it so we don't fail miserably. Essays are ~70% of our English grade now, and this is not just any essay, but the final project (along with, uh, the presentation. The 25 minute presentation with "limited" PowerPoint. Yeah, that should be fun.) Admittedly, our thesis is pretty short, but that's what happens when you don't know how to write a thesis for a stupidly long (15-20 page) paper and when you have to tailor everything about your paper to fit your research, instead of the other way around. I know the thesis needs to be longer, but I don't know how to make it longer. So I have to ask. I feel bad about it, because I feel like I should already know this, but at the same time, I know that it's okay to ask for help if you need help. And I - well, we, really, but since I'm the one who basically wrote the thesis, and, uh, is in possession of the thesis - need help.

Oh, also! In Paradisa, Joshua got himself killed. Now,I love Josh. He's probably my favourite character in TWEWY. But this is arguably the best. plot. ever, because Joshua is an asshole and needs to learn things like limitations and consequences. Also, I think something like half the castle is going to celebrate his death, which is hilarious.

I find I've taken to correcting my dad's texts. It's almost weird. Speaking of dad, I've got to go out there tonight, and Alexiel's coming with me. ): I shouldn't find that a bad thing, as PS3 games look better on his TV anyway, but it still bugs me a little.

Speaking of going out to dad's, I have 33 APUSH ids to do tonight. |: I mean, I could just put them off until some unspecified later time, as I have been, since I'm so lazy, but at the same time, I'd like to get that weight off my back.

...I've got it! If I can get my dad to pay for FFXIII, then I can work a self-imposed deadline, like, no FFXIII until I finish all my ids, or something like that. (Oh, and notetaking for the first 8 chapters of Malcolm X, and the annotated bibliography and notecards for the AP final project, and the three trig assignments I haven't done yet...) Well, there's a lot of work, but I think I can manage it.

Also, started in on APUSH IDs. 3/28, woot!

I was hoping for a Detective Gumshoe meal tonight. Unfortunately, mum thinks hot dogs and rice sounds weird. /: But she bought Ruffles so at least I can have chips with my hot dogs :9 I'm really hungry, haha.

Also, I've learned that Mabel has kidney cancer, and is soon going in to have one of her kidneys removed because of it. This should be important, as Mabel is, after all, family, but since I have never met her and have only spoken to her all of... like, five times over the phone (all at least five years ago), it's not really hitting me. /: /feels Nobody-ish

Speaking of Nobodies, I read a theory somewhere that it's not that they don't have feelings, but rather that their feelings only pertain to things that pertain to them - that is, that they're sociopathic. I like this theory. It makes sense.

And then I remembered more homework I had to do! |: It's just vocab sentences, so that's not all that bad. I wonder if I should theme these like I did last year, and then what kind of theme I should use if I do. Maybe Metroid. I had a lot of Metroid examples in the APE IDs, after all.

I feel like I should be updating like Twitter or something instead of LJ. |: But then I post a lot when I have nothing to do all day but homework, so... And then I have to sync my Twitter account with my new phone number anyway, so... yeah. (I don't think that had a point.)

Off to not do history IDs! :D

J'ai un nouveau portable. Il est un Samsung Flight. Il s'appelle Lancelot.

...well, I have to practice my French somehow. Anyway, that's pretty much the gist of it, except for the part where the digits in the number add up to six. (Only if you don't add the area code, anyway; with that it's three, and plus country code on top of that is four. But for your basic telephone number, it's six.) 'Course, that doesn't explain why I feel like I've sold my soul to get the damn thing. ...though that might explain why I got super dizzy and had to leave the mall twice during the process of buying the phones. |: (I don't have to pay anything for it, though, since after rebate my phone is free, and after dropping a couple things on the contract that dad and brother had, and then adding me, it's... the same as it was before.)

I'm worrying about my cat, now, too. Well, I mean, the last thing any pet owner wants to find is vomit and blood, so of course I'm worried. I mean, there was a claw in it, and there was some blood on his paw, so at first I thought he may have snagged a claw really bad, but his claws all look fine, and he's still acting like maybe there's something caught in his throat, so... yeah, I'm worried. ):

In happier news, I have fifteen chapters of Huckleberry Finn to read and 30 IDs to do tomorrow, and I just found out that David Boreaneaz voiced Leon in the first Kingdom Hearts. And I can't get my free ringtones to work. |:

(Also, trivia: my phone is called Lancelot because, when I turn it on, it says 'Marching Ever Onward To Tomorrow'. :D )

And then Madame couldn't get the projector for tomorrow and pushed the due date back to Tuesday. We get time to work in class tomorrow on said project, so I didn't actually have to stay after school for filming and also don't have to spend all night editing. Instead, I get to do APUSH IDs!

Went out and got Pikachu-coloured Pichus for... everyone. (Actually just Kristen, Ben, and Marc. Um, and me.) Then got to go to two different tire places and, in the interim, listen to my brother bitch about how dad should just let him buy the 225s, they're cheaper and just as good, and the 215s he's insisting on are discontinued, meaning no one has them, and... on and on and on.

Also I was really really hungry so I made a box of mac and cheese and ate the whole thing. I put a little too much milk in it, but I was really really hungry so it was still good.

I think I'm going to do my trig homework now. I'd almost say that I feel just like Bella Swan! but she sucks ass at trig and I'm amazing at it, so no, I really don't feel like Bella Swan.

Also, I love my Skullcrushers. They're the best headphones I've ever owned. I love them so much.

Earlier this morning, I realised that I didn't know how to get recorded video off my iPod. I googled it and was freaking out, because every result was linking me to programs that weren't free, which, you know, isn't really an option.

Then I found a "quick tutorial" that said you didn't need any programs, you just had to click a check box and then you could get to them through Windows Explorer. It took me five minutes to realise the check box was 1) there, but greyed out and 2) checked. Basically, I was worrying for nothing.

Also, and I just noticed this, but two of the authors of my main APUSH textbook (there are two textbooks orz) are named Rosenburg. That is one letter away from Ronsenburg.

edit: Found the wig, charged the iPod, unearthed a comb from the depths of the bathroom counter and some Sharpies from the depths of my cabinet drawers and drew a lightning bolt on the comb. (Well, it is 'le peigne éclair' after all...) I am so ready to film this project. /lies

I think I've got a new record for IDs... uh, for the first half, anyway. The analyses are probably going to take like two hours *____* /procrastinates until tomorrow

I wanted to do a bit about my feelings on Phantasy Star III, now that I've beaten it, but I did it over such a long span of time (s-six years orz) that I don't really remember much. I'll probably play through it again, and probably as Aron so that I can get the "best" ending, though really I should play as one of the other two third-gen characters, since I haven't played as Ayn yet. I also need to find a guide for PSIV (though I heard the published one was really bad, like even worse than the one for PSIII, which... was also really bad) so I don't feel so weird about playing it... and also find my guide for PSII so I can finish it, but I think I've mentioned that already.

There was some very loud altercation outside the house roughly an hour ago. It was distracting, especially since I was trying to do IDs at the time.

Speaking of IDs, I think I've found a new song I can listen to while working on them. I used to only be able to listen to Godot's theme off Gyakuten Saiban Meets Jazz Soul, but Mexican Flyer works pretty well, too~ Ahaha, can't wait until I get Space Channel 5~ (Mexican Flyer is pretty much the main song in it.)

Speaking of things I can't wait for, the company that's selling our class rings is delivering them on the 16th~ Mine is going to be so pretty, I can't wait to see it~

And we have another day! \o/ (Yeah, I'm not actually that happy about it. Well, except that today's Wednesday and so school doesn't start until 8:30.)

Monday I thought AVID would suck. Yesterday I realised that I have two days a week where I don't have anything to do after lunch, and I have realised the full awesomeness of that. ...also, I need to find something to do for the hour and a half that I'm not going to be spending in class. Today I think I might just drag my history book to fourth and work on IDs, since there are six due on Friday and another fourteen due on Monday. |:

This morning I decided that I'm thankful for my family, who get my Star Trek jokes, my friends, who get all my other jokes, and my school, much as I don't act like it, because I fully believe that it's the best in the district and everyone else just hasn't realised it yet. I'm thankful for Mr Williams, who cares so intensely about his students, even if he spends half his time yelling at them, and because he got me to understand maths. I'm thankful for Mme Qadir, who makes learning French really awesome, and I hope that the rest of her pregnancy goes well and that she ends up with a healthy baby girl. I'm thankful for Ms. Santillan, even though I don't do homework for her class half the time, because I used to hate US history, and now I think it's kind of interesting (even though I still don't like it). I'm thankful for Ms. Waller, because she's supremely cool and chill, and because she makes me look forward to English every day I have it (even if we do have pop essays). I'm thankful for our library, even if they don't seem to have the series that I really want to read right now, because they've got about a billion other things that I want to read, including Sandman comics which is just totally amazing and which I didn't even figure out until last week.

I'm sure I could come up with more people and/or things that I'm thankful for if I thought about it. I think it's important to be thankful for something every day, and maybe even to tell the people you're thankful for that you think that way, because if you never tell them then you might never get the chance.

In other news, the rate of pregnancy-related deaths has apparently tripled since... some time. Probably like 2000 or something. (I wasn't really paying attention to the news, can you tell?) And it's apparently safer to deliver in Bosnia than it is in California. I can't be the only one who thinks there's something wrong with that.
