It's been a while - Mood:Good
Monday May 03 20109:12:11 PM |
So, a lot of stuff happened since I was last here. Let me tell you about some of it.

I decided which college I'm going to go to, and I'm pretty excited to start in the fall in the best city ever. I really cannot wait to graduate. I did not get into UC Berkeley, but I don't need them anyway! Or that's what I keep telling myself!

You might have heard about the floods that we had around here. We got some water in the basement, and had to pump for a while, but it's fine now. Some people lost their whole houses.

My dog also died, which was definitely the worst thing to happen to me in a long, long time. We might get a new dog soon, and I would be up for that, but I don't think it'll ever be the same as having Snowy.

There's a lot of drama in school. A lot. I don't know where to start, really, but I'm just glad that I'll be leaving a lot of people behind once the fall comes.

I hate biting on this stupid gauze.
And that my face is all numb, but the pain is starting to set in.

Ugghhh, i can only have like milkshakes, broth, and mashed potatoes. I want to feel as if I can write my paper.

But I'm kind of loopy. Just a little bit, though

Idk why I'm on YT. I should be sleeping

My time in California! - Mood:Good
Friday August 28 20091:36:27 AM |
Let's see.
I went to the San Francisco Zoo. It was pretty nice. There were lots of little baby animals. And a very cool lemur exhibit.

Shortly thereafter, I took a little roadtrip down in LA. I stayed in a hostel at Venice Beach. (Ew muscly guys!) I liked it there, but I don't think I'd want to live in LA. There's such a gap between the classes.

And then I went to go see Grandma in Phoenix! Saw Julia and Juliet, which was funny, but ended anticlimactically. Grandma is doing quite well for an 84-year-old. She's awake for a lot more of the day now, which makes me very happy.

Back to LA! I went to see Bruno the night I came back, which was forgettable, then spent the day riding around in a Rolls Royce that my second cousin from Beverly Hills owns. I saw the Hollywood sign!

We drove back to San Jose, and then we went camping. Which was boring.

And then I went to Six Flags with TK!

Leaving tomorrow! So excited! - Mood:Good
Monday August 10 20098:56:28 PM |
Not excited about packing. Or that I suddenly need doctor's approval to refill my birth control pills. And that I called in the prescription days ago, and he hasn't given his approval. I'm nervous that if I run out, my period will come back off schedule.

And period off of birth control = not nice. At all.
maybe I'll take one every other day to make them last longer.

I have to wake up at 4 to leave. WOO.

And I need to do 6 essays before September 3rd. And a journal thing. And calc homework and bio stuff. I think I can get it done.

I should finish packing.
I don't want to.
Distract me!

Pain. - Mood:Good
Sunday August 09 200912:52:31 PM |
I'm stupid. I spent the whole day in the Sun, and didn't put on sunscreen.

Now, I have a deep red burn on my back that stings. very badly. Especially when I dress myself.

I'm taking Ibuprofen, and I'm going to run up to the pharmacy to get some aloe (some GOOD aloe). Is there anything else I can do? It hurts, YT.

I'm leaving for San Jose in 2 days.
Hopefully it'll be less stingy by then. Plane ride + sunburn=not fun, I'm thinking.

Mathletes of YT, and general advice givers, help me. - Mood:Good
Sunday August 02 200911:16:27 AM |
I have summer work for my calculus class next year. It's about a 150 or so problems.
That alone is daunting.

But I looked at the problems a couple of weeks ago and did some of them that I felt comfortable with.
The problem is, there's a significant amount of stuff that I was never taught and have never seen before.

I tried to open up my study guides and teach myself... But I feel like I need someone to actually TEACH me the stuff.

So, do I continue trying to teach myself math, or do I just do the stuff I know how to do, and hand it in as is?

Tell me if this makes any sense to you. It does not to me. - Mood:Good
Thursday July 30 20099:25:32 PM |
My friend babysits every week and receives pay for it. Her mother takes the vast majority of all the money she gets (babysitting, birthdays, holidays...). Now, if it were to pay the bills or something, I could understand. But it's not.

On top of that, when my friend wants to buy something, her mother complains about how she doesn't save her money, and that if she wants something, she has to save up!

I just don't see why this is. If you don't trust your kid to have a bunch of money on hand, and you want to hold onto it... That's cool, I guess. But why not give it back to them when they tell you what they want to get and how much it will cost?

And this is really about a friend.
my parents let me spend my money however I so choose.

While I was shopping today, I looked at the tags of clothes to see where they were made.
I found one from a non-third-world country. And it was ugly.

Problem!! - Mood:Good
Thursday July 23 20099:24:15 PM |
Not a huge problem.
But, it's still bothering me.

I'm flying to San Jose in a few weeks.
I have a layover at Midway.

The plane lands at Midway at 8:00
The other plane I need to get on takes off at 8:35.

Do you think I'll make it?

In other news:
The application process looks scary.
Two of the schools I'm applying to are not common app members.
Idk how to do unweighted GPA
I'm clueless.

Come be excited with me!! - Mood:Good
Tuesday July 21 20097:32:26 PM |
I bought plane tickets for a round trip to San Jose! I'm staying with my cousin for a week and a half.

EXCITING. I like to take a trip every summer. Last year it was Italy, this year it's California. Before then, not much for a few years. I consider myself really lucky, though.

We're taking a road trip. From San Francisco to LA, then from LA to Phoenix (to see my Grandma ) then from there to Las Vegas for two nights () back to San Francisco again.

And then I'll probably do things there. Like see Berkeley.

Are there things to do in Las Vegas for under 21-ers? I hope so. Because it seems fun, but I don't want to do nothing while my cousin drinks and gambles.

I'm also going to Disney World in February with my best friend, who's never been before.

Any exciting plans for the summer, YT?

16 and pregnant.
"I mean, like, I can take care of myself, right? Sooo, I can take care of a baby."
Ugh. This girl just sounds so stupid. So stupid.
Poor kid.
Oh, she just dropped out of school because her cheerleader friend said something mean to her.

I was working on my resume today. Everything looks good, except that little pesky extracurricular section...

Do you like Subway?
I always find it to be kind food. And when they try to make something that's supposed to be good, like a steak and cheese, they completely mess it up.

What is your take on it?

Omg I love driving places. - Mood:Good
Friday July 03 20099:04:28 PM |
Omg I hate auto insurance.
$1750 for just liability? Really?
It should go down in 10 years or so, but by that time, I'll hopefully have the money to pay some ridiculous amount of money on car insurance.

For those of you who read my other journal, that test was really really easy.

And I drove to get pizza today. It's yummy.

I am kind of full.
But it's a really delicious pizza, and I would like to savor another slice.

Should I?
Does this happen to you a lot, YT?

I`m freaking out about this road test - Mood:Anxious
Tuesday June 30 200911:04:41 PM |
Was your road test easy? Everyone tells me it's easy to pass, but I'm still scared.

Should I drive to my test or have Dad drive me? It's an hour and a half away. I've driven there before, but by the time I got there, I really did not want to drive anymore.

But my Dad thinks it would be good for me, to help me warm up or whatever. But... one and a half hours. Ack.

Also: AP grades come in soon. Maybe. Yay (?)

I don't know what to do about my brother.
He's 15. He's really a sweet, articulate kid when he's alone.

When he's with his friends, though (who are NOT the greatest role models), he acts like a complete idiot. Racial/homophobic slurs, talking really disrespectutfully about girls, etc.

And all of his friends are major druggies and/or go to training school. He's been in a lot of fights, and he barely passed the 9th grade.

He failed computer applications, ffs!!

Whenever I talk to him about it, he tells me it's none of my business or changes the subject.

I feel like it's not too late for him, and I really don't want to see my little brother fall until he hits rock bottom, but is that really what I need to do...?

Otherwise I wouldn't have this shiny new KEEEYYYY.
Thank yoooouuu

So, I figured out what I'm going to do for my senior project. (It's required for me to graduate, and has to show a learning stretch. You need a mentor, blah blah blah )

I'm going to learn to sequence DNA!! Yay being chem teacher's favorite.

AP exams are done.
I studied...a lot.
I think I got at least a 3 on each.

I have to look for scholarships this summer. And write my college essays. Must not procrastinate on that.

They say that your senior year is supposed to be easy.
It won't.

Is it bad that almost all of my thoughts center around school/homework?

Reasons why living in Rhode Island sucks - Mood:Good
Sunday April 19 200912:46:11 AM |
Everyone is in such a rush to do stuff, and they're always so stressed out. I want to just kind of be like "Dude, look around. We're in Rhode Island. Nothing big is happening."

When I get my license, I can only drive within the state. WTF? Why should teenagers from California or Texas get a huge area to drive in, but I'm stuck with trips to Providence?

Speaking of Providence, the accents there are horrendous.

It gets really cold. And then it gets really hot. Repeat.

Everyone says, "That place from Family Guy?! I thought that was made up!" or says "Is that in New York?"

It's really pretty in the fall
and it feels kind of cozy, with all the suburbs everywhere.

In other news, AP exams are in less than 3 weeks.

Cram time.

Help me decide which math class I should take next year!! - Mood:Good
Thursday April 16 20099:20:47 PM |
I want to major in biology in college.
I'm in precalculus right now.

I'll have to take statistics and calc at some point, right? So Should I do stats or take a calc class?

The calc class would definitely be harder, but would it be worth the effort to get some knowledge on it before I went on to college?

My guidance counselors are useless. This is why I come to YT for this sort of thing.

ALSO, should I take Chem II and Physics I (which is a do-nothing class) or not take physics at all and substitute is with a history class? Because if I take two sciences, I won't have room for a history.

I ate almost a whole medium pizza.
I was starving.

What's your favorite flavor of Snapple, YT?

TEST TIME - Mood:Good
Tuesday April 07 200911:09:19 PM |
SAT: May 2
European History AP exam:May 8
Biology AP exam: May 11.

I was looking at the DBQ from earlier years for the European history one, and it was like, "Discuss the views in Europs from (this date) to (that date)."


So, this week coming up is going to be full of studying delight and practicing driving.

I like driving, by the way. After you get over the fear of hitting a child randomly running into the street, it's kind of fun.

I'm sure I'll get sick of it, though.

Back to AP exam talk:

I feel like my teachers aren't teaching fast enough. We're supposed to do the Cold War before taking the history exam, and we haven't even gotten to WWI.

Oh, and ecology?
Screw that. I hate ecology. So boring.

And I know nothing yet about DNA or the cell itself and we JUST started evolution and OMG there's this effing math project I think I'm gonna BS.

But instead, I'm on YT, and eating cookie dough.

I hope I don't get salmonella, that would suck.
But the chances of that are like 1/300,000 or something crazy, right?

I'm getting on a plane to Phoenix tomorrow at noon. I'll spend a lovely five days there with my Grandma. And Yay, warm weather.

TheKaiser and I are about to play Mario Kart. He'll beat me. Oh well.

The kid I babysit's mom is pregnant, and she wants me to babysit the baby when it comes.

That scares me. I can handle a bratty 4-year-old, but a baby? I've never changed a diaper or anything.

My father was unemployed in November. - Mood:Ecstatic
Saturday February 07 20093:13:16 PM |
Bad news: My mom and Dad are still trying to get medical.

Good news: They're making some under-the-table money (nothing illegal)

BETTER NEWS:I got my financial aid forms back.

To go to UC Berkeley or Brown, it would cost $1500, including student assets.

It would cost me $7000 to go to rinky-dink University of Rhode Island.

I'm going to call them and I'm going to add some more schools I'm interested in.


Boo having to buy insulin for my Mom because we're technically still over the poverty line.

Stanford University sent me a letter. - Mood:Good
Friday February 06 20099:22:11 PM |
They want me to apply for a summer program there. I could get college credits for the school at the same time.

Going to Stanford would be an absolute dream. The program only accepts 360 high school students a year, so they'll probably pick private school rich stuck-up kids...

I'm going to apply anyway.

However, I'd need to decide whether I'd stay on campus or with my cousin who lives near the city and take public transportation to my classes.

Staying on campus would mean I'd have to take a minimum of 8 units (eeek), and stay there 24/7 other than when we go on little field trips.

$9000. Not bad.

Or if I stayed somewhere else it would be like, $3000 for one class, $5000 for two.

Also not bad.

Tbh, I'd rather not be roomed with some snobby rich kid, but it would be nice to get a campus experience. (cont)

I guess I'm not different.
You know what today is?
Yeah, me and my boyfriend's anniversary.
Apparently they're holding some football game for us. Burce Springsteen will be there, you guys should watch.

In all seriousness, though, he makes me very happy and I'm glad to have been dating him for this past year.

Enough of that.
I'm going to watch the Superbowl just for the commercials. My dad just left to go get good food to eat while staring at a bunch of men tackling each other which I will happily eat.

I've been hainvg the strangest thing for saltine crackers lately. I sit down with a sleeve and eat the whole thing.

My mom has gotten better. She ate some toast this morning.

What kind of cravings do you have this fine day?

My mommy`s sick, and I`m worried. - Mood:Good
Saturday January 31 20098:27:20 PM |
She's been throwing up all day, and I'm concerned.

Washing out the vomit bucket and getting her ice chips doesn't bother me, but I'm really concerned.

She threw up a brown-red liquid, and she was worried that it might be blood. But when I threw up blood one time, it was bright red and stood out against what I threw up, so I don't think it's that, but I'm no professional.

And I tested her for dehydration, (pinched the top of her hand, it went down) so she's fine in that area.

Anything else I can do?
Anything she can eat that won't come back up?

She doesn't want me to call 911, because she doesn't have health insurance.

I'm kind of worried.

It was by Kelly Clarkson.
And it went a little something like this:

Pretty much cliche rhythm, but when you hear those words, it's kind of like, "Wut?"

So, I watched Lie to Me this Wednesday. I like it a lot, and I will be watching it again.

3 weeks until I get on a plane and go to Arizona!!

Yay 75 degree weather and seeing Grandma.

I should be studying for Biology and Spanish and History.

BUT I'M NOT. Story of my life.

Also, do they have Bob's Discount Furniture where you are? Yeah, there's a reason it's Discount. The chairs have holes in them, ffs.

Cough hack - Mood:Good
Friday January 23 20099:35:01 PM |
I'm all stuffed up, and whenever I blow my nose, my nostrils burn. My throat hurts and there's pressure on my head. The doctor isn't in until Monday. I want to get better.

My laptop recently got its hard drive replaced. It crashed the night before a big paper was due. Luckily, I had backed it up, so I only had to edit it again, not type it up all over again.

I like orange juice a lot.
I can't taste the pizza I'm eating.

I'm sorry if I've made some nonsensical/rude comments on here to some of you. I'm on a lot of Nyquil and Afrin and Tylenol.

I took a 5 hour nap earlier today. It was nice.

I took my math exam today. I skipped about 15 questions, but she said that we wouldn't be able to finish it all anyway. It wasn't bad.

Just Chemistry, Biology, History, and Spanish left to go.

To all of the people who say I'm going to miss high school:

I hate editing. I really do. I was about to insert a paragraph describing one of my character's childhood, but, yeah, I'm typing a journal instead.

Exams are coming up, and I will end up cramming. WOOO.

Thank God for those AP handbooks. They pretty much cut out all the crap my biology/history teacher say.

I'm getting chilli cheese nachos soon.
With jalepenos!
