APs are OVER! YAY!

English wasn't bad, the yayness of being able to write about Oscar Wilde was evened out by the nayness of having to write about effing Ethan Frome. I HATE books involving the country and go out of my way to avoid them...karma, I suppose.

Then Ruthie, Heather and I went to Charcoal Pit and were easily the youngest there. It was amusing. And fun. Because I like Ruthie and Heather. They make me happy.

Anybody else realize that next week is our last full week of school in our high school careers? O_o

Also want to point out that the best picture in the entire yearbook is on page 138. I love how it says Liz and I are fidgeting with our calculators and it's blatantly obvious that there is NOTHING on our desks and thus we must be playing Tetris. Hahahahahaha, oh, stat...

I'm done.

97 on term paper! Yay! I feel so dumb though, in all my editting I accidentally took out a page number and got 2 points off. Not that I have a right to complain because I'm more than happy with a 97, but it still made me slap my forehead. But I got an "extremely well done -- a pleasure to read," so all is well.

Will hopefully make up for my sonnet being utter crap.

And now, I'm listening to Juanes, hoping the Spanish will stick into my head, as I study for stat. Aka, preparing for my grisly death tomorrow. Should be fun.

Quick question to those at BHS: Monday is a 3 day, correct? I just don't want to show up late for study hall first period and find out it was actually a 2 day.

Site of the Day

Now you may click on and go, "MARIANNE! I AM SHOCKED AND APPALLED! WHAT KIND OF SITES ARE *YOU* LOOKING AT?!?!" But hang on, hang on... click on any photo, the most beautiful one you see. It will be maximized so you can enjoy its full beauty. Then hold your mouse over it. Let your jaw drop, let the snickers escape...then play with mouse and photo as you will.

I could do a nice long post on body image as shown by the media, unrealistic standards, hypocrisies, etc., but I'm rather tired and lazy and I don't feel like it. And you know what they say about pictures being worth 1000 words...so here you have 45 pictures, that's 45000 words. Take from it what you will.

Yesterday I googled myself and almost had a heart attack. The first result is for the Delaware GOP website. Ummm yeah. Not only that, but it then says that I was "the first place winner in the ..." so if somebody just looked at the google results, it would look like I won a contest for the Republican party. Which makes me feel utterly ashamed. I'm horribly amused and disturbed at the same time.

Spring break yay! All I have to do is read Hamlet, do my AP Spanish monster review, and actually go into stat review sessions. Fun times.

Ah well. Spring break!

I have to stop by Lauren's today to get my CDs, but I just realized I'm not allowed to drive with the new medicine I'm on until I'm certain how it's going to affect me. Which means I must sit around and wait for mum to feel like driving me. [sits]

Tis a nice feeling.

Piggy Test!

It was actually surprisingly accurate. Very difficult drawing piggies with a mouse, I envy anybody who can do it.

And now back to Spanish.

And my bunny who was very annoyed with me for not paying attention to her. Spoiled brat.

If every day could be like today, I'd be really happy.

Minus that psych quiz.

But going in for band and psych and going home ... lovely.

I thought of something else I could add in my oral book report. The question is, do I rework that section to include it? Or do I just forget about it because I don't really need it all that much?

Questions to ponder.

I feel like poking somebody. Any volunteers?

I'm really glad I didn't make that rant that I was planning on making the other day.

Things are good.

And so I celebrate with randomosityCollapse )

But on another note...insomnia sucks. Of all the things for my mom to pass down to me...

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe we'd ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

I can't be held responsible

[ mood | thoughtful ]

I've been in a crappy mood, and was tempted to do one long, bitchy rant...but then I decided not to. Because yes, there are things in my life that upset me/worry/confuse me at the moment, but overall, I can't really complain. Times change and people change, but some things just stick. And so, I now present to you my list of loves, in order of how they appear on my userinfo page:

I love Amy because she keeps me amused in stat class, always has tales of drama, and rescued me from my section in marching band quite frequently.

I love Swati because she was one of the only reasons I survived Princeton Review. Snowball fights, anyone?

I love Jackie because we share a mind and obsessions that will most likely get us sent to hell on the express train. With plans to change the English language, take over the world, and sip mai tais in London, you can't go wrong!

I love Marianne because she's my twin and she's the most bestest person in the world, even if she does eat her ducks. And she is my partner in crime -- we can confuse anybody when we're together!

I love Dani because she kept me sane during CCD for God knows how many years. Really, it's an amazing feat, and I shall never forget it.

I love Mollie because she is refreshingly blunt and great fun to talk to. Although it would have been nice to have a class with her ONCE in four years of high school... ah well, we've had to settle for lunches but it's worked out okay. And she was the first one to really call me Mar, basically changing my life forever. *grin*

I love Lauren because she never fails to entertain me, whether it be with stories or pieces of paper with strategically placed holes. She is also up there with Amy for being a band buddy.

I love Liz C because she's been one of my best friends since I was the bitchiest five year old on the planet. That takes skill. Also for her blatant disrespect of Wilt and allowing me to poke her whenever I feel like it.

I love Georgia because she is one of the few people I can spend almost literally my entire summer with and not get sick of. Even if she does still mock me for turning on the candles a full five years after the fact.

I love Lela because everybody needs a Kentucky friend! Plus she keeps me updated on the guy drama in her life, making me feel like I'm living in a Catholic school soap opera. I love it.

I love Liz S because she gave me a "Happy 1st Christmas" card in 8th grade that I still have. She has always made me laugh, and has redeemed Mount in my eyes.

I love Jen because she's always saving my butt academics wise, and she's a total sweetie, even if she does always seem to forget that her house is not that far out of my way to school.

Obviously, there are more people I love in my life, but I don't know if they read this LJ so I shan't bother now. But if by chance one does read this and becomes offended that he/she/it was not named, I will by all means made an addition to this entry.

Like I said...times change, people change, but I can't forget what's at the core, what first made me go "this is a great person and I'm glad we're friends." And for this I thank you all. Much love.

Whisper words of wisdom [03 Mar 2006|03:12pm]
[ mood | relieved ]

And so, after getting through 20 pages of the sermon, I talk to Smith today, who tells me that it is a waste of time to actually read the Parson's Tale and I should just find a summary of it online. Part of me is annoyed that I wasted time trudging through that mess, the other part of me is massively relieved that I don't have to go through any more of it. Now I just must find a summary...

Jackie, the mint tea is delicious. Mmmm thank you.

I had almost been looking forward to this Canterbury assignment. Chaucer sounded like an interesting fellow.

But then I look at my assigned Parson's Tale.

A 44 page sermon on the seven deadly sins and penitence. And it's in PROSE. Where is the fun in that, I ask you?

I'm on the second page and already want to stab myself in the heart with a spoon. "There are [insert number here] reasons for [insert subject here]. Quotes [insert random saint's quote here], and quote [insert another random saint's quote here], and quote Jesus (because you ALWAYS must quote Jesus)." GAH!

I finally got a copy of the book that includes the tale, but it onle has it in Middle English, which is a bit of a waste, but it has some good essays in the back, so I'll return it next week. And I can't print out the tale, which I'd prefer to do so I could read it in school or something, because, like I said, it's 44 pages.

Note to Chaucer: The Parson was a good, holy guy. We get the point. Stop by page 10. Please.

My iTunes has a dirty mind...

You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute [27 Feb 2006|03:12pm]
[ mood | amused ]

I find it rather amusing that I went down to the band room to simply pick up my flute, and ended up getting recruited to write a band booklet to distribute to 8th graders to promote the joys of the instrumental opportunities at Brandywine.

Also find is amusing/scary that this is the second time I've forgotten my psych book in two days. I think I have some aversion to it. Luckily it looks short, so I should be able to get it done before school tomorrow/in band. But still. I suck.

If I lived during 1710-1736, I would SO have taken Pergolesi as my lover.

Well, maybe not until around 1730 or so. I don't like little boys.

But still.

Much love.
