Why I've gone missing...

Date Posted: 9th May 2013 at 2:48 AM

In short: school blocks on my computer decided to classify this site as "games" and it's been difficult to get on. But, it let me discover a site that has completely absorbed me.

It's this great website called myhogwarts.com (not to be confused with .co.uk) that is like an online version of Hogwarts with duelling and quidditch and classes and everything! We even hospitalized the professors earlier So you should join if you're interested.

I Could Write a Better Love Song Than You

Date Posted: 8th Apr 2011 at 2:10 AM

Marcus Xavier hid within bushes, crouching as he watched the mercenaries pass, holding his breath so that the only sound escaping his hiding place was the wind flowing slowly through the leaves. Not a sound could be made if Marcus wished to live and finally destroy the capital's reign of terror...

...wait, that's not a love song.

In reality, I'm just kind of bored and my dawning of a 16th b-day has gotten me realizing that I don't actually have many friends. Well, none that aren't warring with all my other friends. And then, when it comes to love songs, has anyone wrote about a crush spanning years only for one to realize that dreamy is completely infatuated with your friend to the point of stalker-dom? Good times.

Whatever, just thought I'd put that out there.

Oration on the Dignity of Testing

Date Posted: 24th Mar 2011 at 9:26 PM

So today I had a mathy testy thingy, and I got a C. Depending on what type of person you are you'll react to this differently. Some may gasp in shock, mourning my grade as a failure to the institution, others may praise my grade with near-worship dedication. Wither way, it leaves the test-ee feeling kind of torn. Should they be happy or not? Genius friends A and B have already ticked your name of the people they need to compete with to get into Princeton, while Average friends C and D are wishing to be receiving your grades. Then there's Genius kid E who thinks his grades suck, but when you compare grades you see that he has received all As and Bs on everything and wishes he had your stellar math grade (a solid C).

I remember in my Latin class we had P.H.E.s. Public Humiliation Exams which consisted of 40 questions we answered, then graded, then we all stood up and she started counting backwards from 40 and you sat down when the number of questions you got wrong was called. Needless to say, I was usually from 20-8 depending on how well I knew the stuff and how luck I was that particular day. I averaged somewhere in the mid-teens. Then Freaky Genius kids A and B always get 4 or lower making you all feel like failures.

It appears to me that everyone when confronted with a test reacts in different ways both pre and post testing. Some will study for hours on end before hand then have a nervous breakdown five minutes prior. Others won't study at all and rely on their brains to get them through. I knew this one kid who before every test he would ask my rather peeved honors geometry teacher if he could take the test later. Needless to say he was not recommended for honors the next year good riddance.

All in all, I find testing deplorable and find that there are better ways to show our teachers how well we know their subject. Preferably in the company of cookies.

Entry 1- Feet are kinda weird aren't they?

Date Posted: 14th Mar 2011 at 8:32 PM

Seriously, look down at your feet. Move them up and down and wiggle them some more, what do you think? Kinda weird, huh? Arch your foot up so you're standing on the end of your foot and your toes. It looks like a lion's foot! Except minus the claws and fur and stuff. I kinda wonder why we have feet. Why five toes and why in that shape? Interesting fact about my feet, they are long and thin, and by big toe is as long as my thumb. I have abnormally long fingers and toes, leaving me with a very adept toe-pinching ability. What's that you say? That would be the art of pinching someone using your big toe and your index toe (is that what it's called? I have no idea.)

Why do we have feet? What is the purpose of spandex? How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

The answer is, of course,
