I’ll be on my way to New York in about twenty minutes. Let’s hope for the best, and I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures!
I think my only complaint with the book reviews in our school newspaper is that they don’t really give any information on the book itself. I know you can’t exactly put in all the text on the back cover, but at least a one or two line synopsis would help. I don’t think I’d pick up a book knowing only a few character’s names (nothing about the story or said characters) and that it’s hard to put down. Unless a friend recommended it to me, of course, but that is not the case.
I almost got myself a job at the library this past summer. That reminds me of the time that a librarian got hot and bothered over me checking out a young-adult book as a child. That very incident would shape my future ideals.
You don’t know how far you’ve come until you notice that APUSH review book sitting on your nightstand and do some introspection far too early in the morning.
Career day was probably one of the most useless events our school has thought up in a while. I got to spend half the day with a sassy, shit-talking seventh grader who seemed to care less about what was going on and stood with her clique. Luckily about twenty minutes in, I met up with DP as my kid ditched me so I had someone to sit with. The only good thing about the day was the free food, like the pasta and the candy corn. Oh, and don’t forget the cupcakes by Jake’s mom.
I didn’t learn a thing from the day. I have no clue why I got matched with a cheerleading, dancing girl when I put my profession as a writer (with a backup of computer science). The most fun part was visiting my favorite teacher of all time, Mr. Difrancia, as he taught the class that changed my life. DP and I snuck into his class and sat down, and he was stoked to see us!
Last night was the very first night in a long time I can remember having sleep paralysis. I went to bed around nine, and I couldn’t move anything. At all. I kept drifting in and out of a dream trying to find…him, after our fight, I guess, and I couldn’t get anywhere in the dream so I’d wake up. I couldn’t really close my eyes, or open them, and I wanted to vomit the whole time but I couldn’t. I couldn’t even twist my head to look at the clock or move an arm to pinch myself. I couldn’t scream, either. I really don’t want that to happen again. Luckily my mom shook me awake at ten-thirty this morning because I wasn’t responding, and I woke up with an almost blank mind. No thoughts, no nothing…just that memory. Hopefully I’ll remember what I have to do today…
Lessons learned from life. Sometimes you’re going to have incredible luck.
My sister calls Gacy the “John Wayne Clown Men”. If I ever made a band, this would be the name.
I finally asked about my APUSH score and got a four!

Here’s a story. I always had a little Tokomon plush when I was little and in the hospital. He’ll always be my favorite, even though that plushie has gone through it’s fair share of wear and tear over most of the years I’ve been alive.
Making HTML documents that are so bad they’re good seems to be my new hobby.
In honor of my flashdrive, aptly named ITSASHARK.
Here are some facts.
♠ I’m interested in managing money and I’m really good at soliciting at yard sales. My first yard sale about five years ago I made enough to purchase an xbox 360, and that was a really big thing for me. I’m really excited to take AP economics next year.
♠ I collect tights, stationary, and figures. Plus pieces of technology, trading cards, and obscure games.
♠ I’m more of the type to jump into things headfirst over starting out with baby steps and then starting a large task. So instead of learning to drive on back roads (which is most of where I live) I just floored it out onto the main road and learned from there. The same can be said for school projects. Even writing essays, I usually don’t put too much time into the pre-writing stage.
♠ I do not let my food touch if the food is on the same plate. That always gives my brain the signal to not eat if they do. I usually get chicken if I eat out. I also enjoy ranch dressing.
♠ I enjoy Weird NJ-like things and urban legends.
♠ I’ve played through Summon Night: Swordcraft Story six times, and I feel that I’ve still never read every line of dialogue.
