oh crap

karriezai: ([house] [cuddy] oh crap)
Got an email from Suzanne (my supervisor at my internship) saying some things came up at the supervisor's meeting that she needs to touch base with Alice and me on. Seeing as it's just the two of us, I'm thinking it has to do with me being a slacker and Tracy (lead supervisor or whatever) knowing it. I don't think she likes me much because last semester I skipped one of her classes without emailing an excuse, and this semester I skipped the first after school seminar again without an excuse, and Monday she caught me getting to school late. It's the only time I've been late this semester, but of course that's the time she catches me. I have a valid excuse: I was sick all last week (still have the cough) and even had to miss Friday, though I emailed her for that, so I can just blame being sick. I did email Alice to let her know I'd be late, I just didn't email Tracy or Suzanne.

If that's the case, at least we'll be talking to Suzanne and not Tracy. I'm not fond of that woman, and Suzanne is much nicer and more reasonable. Blah.

Other than that, the internship is going well. I've had less trouble with getting up early all the time than I anticipated, though I do always push it until the last possible second before getting out of bed. I've taken over reading, and am in the process of fully taking over science and math. Need to do some planning for that after this, actually. We're starting cells and heredity in science, and math is statistics. I'm going to borrow one of Danny's tape measures and have the kids graph the class heights and find the measures of central tendency for the data.

Have not been writing. Finished a chapter of a Zelda fanfic, but nothing other than that. Rargh. But I mean, I'm busy. A lot. So I guess it's not so bad an idea to not force writing where it doesn't want to come.

I wish my cough would go away...
karriezai: ([hg] betting on you)
Hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day :D Danny and I celebrated Saturday. Just stayed in with alcohol, video games, Magic: the Gathering, and movies.

I've made lame money the last few shifts at work. Here's hoping the weekend will be better, because we'll need the money. Haven't heard back from Baka, our real estate agent, in a few days. Last we heard, the bank's figuring out the amount left due on the loan for the place so they can come back with a counter offer. I hope they get to it very soon. We need to get the heck out of this place.

School is hectic. Well, life in general. Internship 8-4 Monday through Friday, with an hour-long commute--though I do tend to leave around 3 fairly often to get to work/uni class/mandatory seminars. Three days a week at Hard Times--generally Monday and Friday evening, plus either Saturday or Sunday. Tuesday evening class at the university. Tutoring Shane on Wednesday. And a seminar about every other week on Thursday in a random location.

Teaching is good. I vastly prefer math and reading to science or social studies. I look at science and I'm just kind of like... "What am I going to do, exactly?" There's so much to choose from, but so little time to teach it. I'm taking over science now (slowly), so it's... blah. But reading is really good. It's so freeform you can do almost anything. And the kids are really taking to their writing journals. They love getting feedback.

I had to leave early today for my IUD appointment. I am the proud owner of a Mirena IUD that cramped like a bitch for the first couple hours. It wasn't super painful, just like really heavy duty menstrual cramps. But really gross since they had me come in and get it done on my period; apparently it hurts less then. I guess it's nice of them to consider my pain over their probable preference to not have to stick their hands in a bleeding vagina. For the next week I have to use backup protection, but then I'm good for five years. What what.

Also, I'm getting published. Alt Hist picked up Death in Theatre for its second issue. It's a new magazine, but it's been reviewed by Locus, among others, so it's getting good press. So that's looking up. Not that I've been writing. I'm really busy lately and feel pretty drained, and I'd rather not write unless I really feel like it because forcing myself to in the midst of all my other crap would just not be pleasant.

And I thought I did terribly on my Praxis II tests for Middle School Math and English, but I passed with flying colors. So I'll be qualified to teach middle school, either math or English--in theory at least. I'll be applying everywhere in Montgomery County (and possibly Howard too... or maybe Anne Arundel... depends on where we're living and such...) and then weeding through my options to figure out what I want to do. Because I really don't have any desire to teach science or social studies, but I want to teach math AND reading, so... blah. Makes a choice between middle and elementary school complicated.

Guess that's it for now? I mean, I've been reading--the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld and now I'm working on the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare--but eh. That's it. Overall life's good, just hectic and somewhat stressful.

Oh wait! Mirage Games accepted my response to the first work order they sent me and sent me confirmation of the credits earned, but I haven't heard about anything else forthcoming. So that's kind of sad.

I learned today at my GYN appointment that a colposcopy involves putting vinegar... up there... and watching how the body reacts. Talk about strangely gross. However, my exam turned up normal, so I just have to come back in a year and get a direct HPV exam instead of a normal PAP. Assuming that comes back negative, I'll be all clear. If not, it'll just mean another colposcopy.

I'm going to smell like vinegar all day D:

I submitted a query for "Unjoined" to Rebel Tales. I'm planning on submitting "Control" to Realms of Fantasy next time I go out. (It's snowing now. Yeah, little early for that. Craziness.) And I found a historical fiction magazine to submit "Death in Theatre" to and did that as well. I wish all submissions could be electronic now.

I need to type up a resume for Tracy and sign up for the middle school Praxis II exams for math and language arts. Deadline for both is today. So... I guess I'll work on that next, and then possibly revise Unjoined. And then... I'm considering revisiting the dead twin realistic story I got two pages into a while back... or maybe working on The Evil Realm... or something.

ETA: Done with the essentials mentioned above. Off to shovel the driveway... assuming I can find a snow shovel... yay exercise?

Danny made me mad last night. I slept in the other room. He didn't comment on it this morning. I don't have time to go into it further.

Made Honorable Mention again in Writers of the Future, this time for Unjoined. Which is great of course; the email said I made top 5% of entries. But not what I was hoping for. Now to think of a new idea. I'm not sure I can get more creative than Unjoined, lol.

Work is screwed all to hell. I'm going in early today. Whoever's making the schedule must be a moron because there's all these gaps in coverage or one person comes in as the last person leaves so we can't stock because there's no overlap. I'm trying to apply at Hard Times Cafe in College Park; I ate there for the first time the other day and it looks pretty awesome, plus it's close to school. The owner isn't there today or I would have gone to poke around. Maybe tomorrow.

Made a doctor's appointment to have this rash I've had for months (I think from the Starbucks water) looked at. I don't see what they're going to say. There's a zillion things that can start a rash and I can't imagine how they'd figure out what's the right cause. But Danny insisted that I go to the hospital for it so I'm going on Friday.

Got to go to work.
karriezai: ([asoiaf] seems i must be a warrior)
 I'm a little overwhelmed right now.

Work: I work at Safeway now, specifically in the Starbucks.  It's fun and less boring than other jobs, as Starbucks has always been for me, but the pay is miserably low (and lower than I was told to expect now that the manager who hired me has been forced into early retirement) and it took a month for me to get paid because I was put in the system wrong at first.  On the (small) plus side, Danny was wrong; there is an employee discount, even if it's only on Safeway Select brands.

Health: My ear is a mess.  I got water caught in it a week ago at the pool and it still feels like a bubble.  I went to the ER Monday and they gave me the option of irrigating it or using medicine drops, and when they advised more toward the drops I agreed.  Well, it's still not fixed, and it's absolutely irritating.  And it keeps getting just a little better before getting worse again, so like... I made an appointment yesterday morning but didn't go because it felt a little better and I thought the medicine was working, but now it's fucked again.

School: I've missed a lot of class lately.  I've skipped math the most, but that's not too worrisome because it's easy and I'm not really missing much.  But I missed my ed internship two weeks ago because I overslept... and I missed all my classes this Monday because I went to the ER for my ear... and even though I woke up and drove my groupmates to school for my ed internship Tuesday, I only stayed about 45 minutes because I was still tired and had to work that night, so I wanted to get some rest.  I can't get my Writers' House citation because I can't take the non-WH creative writing class--not enough credit room.  But that's half-blessing-half-curse.  It means one less summer class.

Stories: I have so been slacking.  In fact, that's what I need to do next.  I'm also worried that my NaNo plans will tank again this year...

STUPID EAR.  I hate it.

Spent all day yesterday in hospitals trying to figure out what the fuck was wrong with my eyes. An opthamologist at Walter Reed said my contacts had just dried my eyes out and gave me all natural eye drops and some ointment to use with the instructions not to wear my contacts for two weeks and call her if I didn't improve. My right eye is particularly bad for some reason, really blurry.

But that's not the reason for my update. I'm gonna try to keep this short and simple. I just want honest opinions/advice. I don't necessarily want to be "right" or have people on my side because I do feel that maybe I'm being a little... well... dumb. So just whatever you really think, and even if I end up not agreeing it's not like I'll be mad or anything.

So Danny's hanging out with Morgan and her friend, another girl, who apparently is really flirty and forward and likes to go after guys when her friends show signs of liking them. (Why is Morgan friends with her anyway?) I suggested that he bring Morgan by to see me at work last Thursday, so he said he'd try to bring Morgan and her friend by today, only clearly that wouldn't have happened even if I'd been cut because they're running on a tight schedule and need to be home by 5. Now, I trust Danny and that nothing would happen, but I just thought I might express to him that it made me mildly uncomfortable because without bringing them by to see me, he's just hanging out with a bunch of teenaged girls. He said once he wouldn't just hang out with Morgan unless we'd all be hanging out later; clearly not the case this time.

But what really made me extremely uncomfortable is when I got home from work and there's a pizza box and empty mike's hard lemonades and smirnoff ices in the room. So clearly they were drinking together.

Is it wrong that that pisses me off? That Danny was at home drinking with two teenaged girls? Like, it really bothers me, maybe more than it should. Especially since, thinking about it, if they'd skipped the drinking there would have been time to come see me or at least he'd for sure be able to pick me up on the way to drop them back off in Virginia, but now he's doubting he'll have time because he took them to Dave and Busters (admittedly to try to reserve lanes for my birthday next month).

I dunno. It gets under my skin. I've also been pretty jealous lately of how freaking much he texts her. Like all the time. And sometimes checks his phone like a girl waiting to see if her boyfriend texted. And downloaded AIM again to IM and video chat with Morgan and her friends in Myrtle Beach (they just got back yesterday). And is it wrong to be skeptical when he tells me he went out and bought a camera to play around with video chatting with me when he did so the day after one-way video chatting with Morgan because he didn't have a camera and so couldn't see him?

I'm done. Again, just honest opinions, and do keep in mind that I trust him not to cheat on me or anything stupid like that... I just don't trust him not to do something completely insensitive that he really shouldn't and really piss me off.

All my comm grades are finally in. I made an 89 on the final (pretty damn good considering) and an 86.something in the class (well, it's a solid B, I can live with that). In theater they promised to have final grades in by Monday at midnight, stat prof said he'd have them in probably by some time tomorrow... In Honors I'm just waiting on him to grade my final, but seeing as I only need a 147 out of 200 to get an A in the class I'm not too worried... And definitely gonna make a B in Writer's House, which is pathetic. Gotta do much better next semester. Blah.

ETA: I just calculated my grade so far for stat, and I'm not going to make an A (I'd need to make a 147.5 out of 150 on the final), but I should easily make a B since I'd only need about an 87.5 on the final (that's about 59%, haha), and that's without including the one extra credit sheet I did in class (but I think that may just be worth one point, haha). So, all that considered, I should make a 3.588 if I make an A in theater (I only need a 165 out of 200 on the final, I think I'll be okay). Or a 3.412 if I somehow make a B in theater. Yes, yes, I'm very obsessive. /edit

Okay. I'm watching Coyote Ugly. Maybe this time I'll actually finish it. I wanna be a coyote!

Danny's sick. It's miserable because he's not sick enough to just stay in bed and be waited on, he's walking around and working and stuff, but he's sick and grumpy and miserable. I feel bad because it can get kind of annoying, but I shouldn't be annoyed by my sick baby. Meh.

I work tonight, and tomorrow morning. But no school! No homework to worry about! Just work, and exercise, and trying to write, and trying to keep the house clean. Meh. But hopefully I make lots of money, and sell lots of merch, and go home early.
karriezai: ([house] excellent disguise)
Still getting over the last of my cold. God it's a long lasting bugger. I don't feel like crap anymore, I just occasionally cough uncontrollably and sometimes still have a bit of congestion.

We're about to watch How I Met Your Mother, which we had to download because the DVR flipped out and decided not to record it. Which is weird; it's ranked first in priority, so it should never have a problem. Oh well.

Had my stat exam tonight. I feel like I did fine, only one problem that kind of stumped me at the end. I had to use my iPhone sneaky-like because it was the only calculator I had.

Posted some pictures of Bear and of squirrels on campus. I'm too lazy to do my normal preview thing.

karriezai: (Default)
I'm sick. I couldn't sleep last night because of a sore throat. My throat feels better now (due probably in part to Danny forcefeeding me disgusting DayQuil) but my muscles all still ache from the constant tossing and turning and not getting any rest in general. And my stomach had that empty ache, but I think it's starting to turn into just hunger.

At least I don't work today.

Well anyway. Dennis and Heather brought over his mom's cat because she's out of town. He's fat but cute, very polite compared to a lot of cats. He seems to like people, he's only very very mildly skittish. You'd have to actually startle him to set him flying... if you approach him, he'll sit and let you pet him. When I was eating lunch yesterday he was sitting on my feet sniffing at my sandwich. I gave him little pieces of turkey on my plate to keep him from sniffing and/or licking at the sandwich itself. =)

I need contacts. I'm wearing my last pair and it worries me whenever they act up because I don't want to lose them.

I only made $27 Sunday morning (it was dead, I only had five tables). And I only made $62 yesterday. That's not SO bad I guess. Thinking about it, since I was cut early it was about $10 an hour tax free. I didn't sell any merchandise or Blue Moon or anything like that though. I work my first trivia night Wednesday night, hopefully I'll do better then.

Okay so naps and stuff. I was hoping to pick up my parking pass and maybe go to the gym on campus today but I have to feel better first.
karriezai: ([kh] [sora] melt away)
So I'm learning to drive stick finally. Danny's tried to teach me a little before but my heart wasn't really in it... I wasn't comfortable enough driving automatic yet to really commit to it. It's a lot to think about and adjust to. Danny keeps telling me to feel where the clutch hits the point you need to start hitting the gas, but I'm still better at seeing it when the RPMs drop. I'm told that his car is a weird manual, and if I can learn to drive it I can drive any manual... we'll see. Our driveway is a steep hill (speaking of which, I looked up at the mad security system for our house a minute ago and saw a white horse walk past the bottom of the driveway -- weird), and yesterday after I almost drove his car into a ditch because I was fighting between slowing down enough to turn and stalling, he had me sit on the driveway and go from stopped to first gear. It took a few tries, but I started doing pretty well at that. In the beginning it was very frustrating and I was close to tears, but at the end he told me I stalled way less than he expected...

So I've driven up and down Warrenton (street leading to our driveway, little to no traffic ever) once or twice, and today he had me drive through the parking lot from Target to Chipotle. I'm determined to actually learn this time, but I do want to start small, and I'm not ready to stall in traffic yet.

I'm also sick. I woke up with a worse sore throat than what I had yesterday and a mad headache, so I didn't go to class. I did go by school to drop off the last of my tuition status paperwork though. The woman wasn't there, but another lady found my file for me and let me sign my tax returns and leave the other stuff with my file. I stopped at the Diner and got a milkshake too. I've got laundry in the washer now, and I folded the clean clothes that have been sitting in a basket for almost a week.

Stuff to do for next week )

Lots to do... where to start?

ETA: Also, I went to room selection yesterday and met my roommate for next semester. She seems pretty chill, we'll probably have a relationship in the middle of the Joy-Laura spectrum... Laura being someone I chat with a lot when I see her, Joy being someone I really only say hi to. Her name's Deborah, she's 21 and a junior (we can have beer in our room o_O), and she's in Writer's House more for poetry than anything else. Which means I'll have to go outside my room for community about my specific type of writing, but that's cool. I need to do that anyway.
karriezai: ([misc] life's a bitch)
Mehhhh. I'm so tired. I want a day when I don't have to get up and do anything. No alarm clocks, no work, no school. My last day off was last Thursday. My next isn't until next Wednesday, and I swear if they try to get me to work that day I will NOT say yes. Not even for a four hour shift. That'll be almost two straight weeks of work and school with no days off.

Poor Danny is sick, and while I want to take care of him there have been a couple moments when I've wanted to stab him for needing this or wanting me to do that when I need to take care of myself, too. Like when I need to be awake in four hours to go to work and he's trying to get me to do this or that. No. Need sleep.

Blah. So tomorrow I have to get up at 4:30am. Today I have class straight until 3:15 and then work from 4:15 to 9:30. That hour long break between will mostly be consumed by walking to my car and then driving home to change. I may even be late, but if I will be I'll call them and if they don't like it they can suck it.

Danny said he'd visit me at work to keep me company for a while. I really hope he does. It'd be something, at least.

Anyway, Saturday I have to get up at 6:30, Sunday 7:30, Monday 7:30, Tuesday 8. And then a blessed break. All I'll have to do Wednesday is whatever homework I get on Tuesday.

I wish I had some gum. ;_;
karriezai: ([kh] [riku] i will go mad)
I'm sick and I miss Danny ._.
karriezai: ([kh] [akuroku] sticks totally gay for)
So tomorrow will be my first day of Monday classes. I'll have to find time to go to the gym... I mean, I could just run, but I'd prefer to go to the gym. I could go after class, but I wouldn't have time to do the rock wall afterward. I suppose I could do the rock wall first, except I at least want to stretch first, and I won't have time. I could go between JOUR100 and HONR100 -- that's about two and a half hours, that's enough time. The whole showering thing will suck though. I'll work it out.

I'm listening to Laura on the phone with her parents, phasing in and out of English and... I guess Taiwanese? I don't know exactly what. But it's interesting to notice how the speech inflections are completely different from English. That's the writer in me coming out.

Anyway. So Danny left for Vegas this morning. We went to bed just before 3 and woke up at 6:30. Arty drove us... he's a weird kid. He asked me on the way back, when he was driving me to College Park, if there were any creepy guys in my dorm, so I told him about the kid from my Creative Writing seminar... who isn't exactly creepy, but who didn't seem to care that I have a boyfriend... and Arty said that to a lot of guys if your boyfriend doesn't go to the same school, if he isn't around all the time, then he doesn't matter. Like they can still edge in. He said a lot of guys just assume a lot of girls will cheat... or something like that. I didn't reply, my mind was already moving on to another subject, but a minute later he said, "You don't have to reply to that, that was awkward." Haha. "I took it as rhetorical," I told him. He's a strange guy in some ways, but harmless, and nice enough.

Danny'll be in Vegas until Thursday, which isn't bad considering I'll have school through Thursday so I might not have seen him anyway. I hope he has fun, but I do wish I could go... and I was 21 so I could actually DO stuff if I went...

So yeah. The schoolwork isn't so bad. It isn't really necessary to close read a lot of the assigned reading -- skimming is fine because lecture covers the pertinent info from the reading. I had a group assignment in COMM200, but I did the hard part and it didn't take long. Hopefully my group members will mostly be able to copy-paste-rearrange what I sent out -- tweak and improve it.

I'm working out regularly. It's weird to say since it hasn't even been two weeks of working out regularly yet, but I've been on top of it with no reluctance or anything. And I go to Black Belt Club Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 to 10:30 at night. My workout outside the club consists mostly of twenty minutes on the elliptical trainer, stretching, sit-ups (not necessarily in that order), and climbing the rock wall since I can't do push-ups. If I'm at Danny's, I run. I'm learning to pace myself so I can actually run the full mile... then sit-ups, and stretching still. I'm gonna try to do maintenance stretching on "days off" from exercising, and hardcore stretching whenever I go to the gym. Anyway, since it's been just more than a week, my muscles are still adjusting. It's not really painful, just uncomfortable.

I'm also getting sick, it seems. A tiny bit of a runny nose and a sore throat. Wonderful, right?

So far it hasn't rained, but that'll suck. For classes and for working out. The temptation to just not go out in the rain at all will be great. Especially since I don't have an umbrella... I should invest in one of those. Or a poncho or something.

Aaaand I was a little nervous, but I did exempt out of JOUR181 with an 88-point-something... I'm glad because I was expecting a bare pass, like an 80 even or something, haha. I'm so glad because that frees up my Wednesday. I have one lecture at 9 in the morning and the rest of the day is mine. Or my job's once I get one... lol. Speaking of which... I really hope someone hires me. I applied at Starbucks and filled out a multi-purpose campus application... I suppose I should go looking around some more. I could apply to become a shuttle bus driver for $10 an hour except I hate driving...
karriezai: ([kh] [sora] melt away)
I work tonight at five. I'm sleepy but I'm not gonna nap; I'm gonna write some, and probably eat 'dinner'. I. Am. Bored. Lol.

Flirted a lot today. Was fun. Meh.

Just me or was this post entirely pointless?

Oh yeah! My pay is ridiculously miniscule this week. It doesn't look like the raise is on this check either, but maybe 30 hours just doesn't stretch far for $8.80 an hour either. I won't know until I look at my pay stub tomorrow. But god, not even $200. Wtf.

Tips today, should be, and they're supposed to be decent, two weeks' worth instead of one. But so few hours, no telling.


edit : I didn't want to post another entry, so I'm just editing this one. But I'm getting so, so fucking sick of Starbucks, I'm gonna quit if I can get a job at the youth center or Borders. I'm not getting a raise. Turns out Brandy neglected to tell us that you have to have been in your position for six months to get the raise. Convenient. I've only been there four.

The youth center would be ideal if it's really ten dollars an hour and I can get good hours.

I accidentally skipped two nights of birth control (getting sick fucked my schedule up) and I like... spotted rather heavily today, twas gross. I should probably just throw the pack out since I've only got two pills left, but I haven't set up an appointment to get more and it's my last one.

Dude the lady from Medium cut her hair o_o; I haven't been keeping up with my shows at all. I miss House a ton but I don't want to catch odd episodes -- I want to see them all in order. I've been missing Avatar too. Billy-Erin gave me the link to where I can catch up on those, though, now I just have to actually do it.

My throat hurts. I finally broke down and took more medicine. The cough drops I took at work didn't help.

I'm watching ER. I'm about to start writing again, I think, but I know the TV will distract me. Lol.
karriezai: (Default)
Friday barely exists for me. Thursday I went to bed at... one-ish after watching Click. No school on Friday, just work at 4, so one was a reasonable bedtime, yes? (Click was decent, by the way. I enjoyed watching it, at least.)

Woke up Friday at one in the afternoon (after waking up once or twice during the night and trying cough drops and that throat spray to no effect until my dose of medicine kicked in) and had no voice. At all. It was kinda scary really. So I had Cris call my parents so one of them could call my work to say I wasn't coming in. (I knew he'd be too chicken to call himself, the big scaredybear.) Went back to sleep at like... three. Slept on and off until twelve Saturday (today). So out of those twenty-four hours, I was awake maybe twenty? Ish? That's a lot of sleep. So today when I woke up, I felt weirdly... floaty. Like I was just dreaming, and everything that had happened before was a dream too. I finally distinguished reality from dream (because I did dream a little, about Egan)... but it took forever for that floaty feeling to go away. Until just now, really. No... it's kinda still there. Whatever.

Anyway, I saw The Prestige with mom and Cris, and I really liked it. A freaking ton. It's one of those that I get out of the movie and I just want to babble on with someone about theories, events, what this meant, where this fit in, blah blah blah... but mom and Cris aren't those sorts of people, so I had to shut up. On a day when I was feeling better, I might not have shut up, haha.

I work tomorrow. I'm starting to feel better, so I'm gonna go in. It's just four hours. I already lost like five and a half this week when I only had 13 to begin with, so yeah, let's not lose any more.

Danny's at my Starbucks now. I guess he was permanently transferred finally. They've been talking about it.

Righto. Tata.
karriezai: ([kh] hero / anti-hero)
I went to the ER Sunday night because I was running a 103.5 fever. Dad had me under a bunch of blankets trying to get me to break a sweat, but all he succeeded at was making my fingers tingle. He decided that wasn't natural and had me take a cool shower, which didn't last long since warm to him was too cold for me and I was shivering so bad my hips and back hurt. They were gonna give me an IV in the ER because my heartrate was so high, but it went down while I was there. The strep test they gave me was normal, so they sent me home and said to get a lot of liquids and come back if I wasn't well after three days.

A fever was my only symptom at first. I didn't go to school Monday, but intended to go today... until I got NO sleep last night. My parents checked on me a little after five when they were getting ready to go to work and I was miserable. I was still running a small fever so they said I could stay... I was stuffed up and my throat hurt. And half an hour, an hour later, I was in the bathroom bent over the toilet throwing up.

I threw up three times, three sets of pills, gave up, used the bathroom, and went to bed, finally got some sleep. After that I was fine, except for my throat feeling like shit and my nose being stuffed up.

I hope I don't miss school tomorrow.

Today's my brother's birthday though.

And I think that my computer clock being on military time confuses my LJ, also on military time. 1851 -- at first it said 2251. I had to fix it. One night I posted and it claimed it was the next day. Whatever.

I wrote an article type thing on school uniforms yesterday, just because I felt like it. I think I need to fix it up some... and not just distribute the article itself, because how many kids at my school are actually gonna read a full-length article? No. Put out a synopsis and a few of the main points on neat little papers... put them in the bathrooms or whatever. Better not to get caught though. Hahaha. Maybe I'll get a few kids to help me distribute it so we can all say, "I dunno who wrote it, someone just gave it to me to pass out," if necessary, although better not to get caught doing that either.

We'll see.
