Today’s been interesting. I mowed a lawn, spent 25 minutes on my project, prolly gonna do my normal homework later. Not as bad as yesterday, but could be better. I’ll probably finish my observation time tomorrow, write it up Monday. It wasn’t so bad sitting out there, though. It’s kinda nice just to take a second of doing absolutely NOTHING.
I wish one of my friends from skool would, come over, or call me, or SOMETHING. I’m so bored! Not to mention I’m procrastinating. I’ve got a project that should take around 5 hours to complete. Hopefully I can get an A on it, though starting it this late will probably give me a B. But that’s still good for a long term project.
[sigh] I need something to distract me for the next few hours…
What a boring Friday. I’ve spent most of it playing games. My only hope to salvage it is if Ben has a party, which seems doubtful.
I’m testing out this new cut-down version of Blogger that allows me to post without logging in. It’s pretty nifty. Got some paying work to do around the neighborhood, hopefully I’ll end up with enough to pay off my dad.
My wonderful 4 day weekend has arrived, and I can now mock my homeskooling friends as they slave until 2:00! Muhahaha…[power].
This week has been great. I’m finally getting to know some people at my skool. It always starts out with everybody you know being just acquaintences, but I’m getting past that point, and I’m really happy about it. Making new friends is truly one of the more enjoyable things in life.
Sam’s gone for the weekend, which makes me pretty annoyed, for my own reasons. It’s nice having a friend at church and crap that’s in touch with reality. Hopefully I won’t end up being too bored this weekend.
UPDATE: I’m really bored. This weekend aint looking so good. I’ve got a 10-hour research project to do this weekend, 2 lawns to mow, and the regular band of homework. 🙁
UPDATE: Really, really bored. Was reading a friends blog, and wow, I never realized what goes on in his life. To be in his position….I don’t wanna think about it.
I’m really bored, sort of. I have stuff to do, but I’m in that mood where I can’t stop thinking about something and its really, really distracting. And it really doesn’t help me do anything ELSE that coud be productive. Like…homework. [cough]
I’m really, really restless. And it aint caffeine.
Well, I’m through another Tuesday at skool. Nothing happened, really…
Well I survived my 5th Monday in school. I can’t believe we’re already over 1/8 through the school year. THAT’S A LONG WAY!
Today was just like every other day, though I now refuse to chew gum at school, but I certainly aint posting why. I didn’t do much today, but my dad took me to Chinese Buffet. Prolly to try and set us on good terms or something. He’s just becoming more and more annoying. Just like the “A” on my keyboard. I spilled Coke on my keyboard and its really aggravating how the keys react now. THEY STILL WORK THOUGH!
My mom gets back tonight. They had to fly seperate flights. I am not looking forward to her, either. I enjoy my lone wolf thing. Random note: The ad in my AIM posts in large letters: INTOLERABEL CRUELTY: IN theaters October 10th. WHO NAMES A MOVIE INTOLERABLE CRUELTY??? Whatever.
The weekend at Sam’s house was fun. I thought Sam and I would end up in our usual deadlock of ‘What do u wanna do? I dunno, what do u wanna do?’. We went to the mall, I got Halo PC. That game is too much fun. I earned 20 bux by helping Sam clean his van. It was really, really sick. And not in a good way.
One thing I discovered over the past 3 days: Sam knows way too many girls. Way too many. It really sucks, none of them seem to notice me either. It’s like “[Sam] Oh yeah, this is my friend Tim. [Me] Hello! [Random Girl] Uhh, hi. So Sam, blablabla…” NONE OF THEM NOTICE ME! [Grr]. I just dont have a very striking way with girls. I get along with the girls i know just fine, but making new friends that are girls is nearly impossible. Any females reading this wouldn’t really understand.
Overall a fun week. My parents get home tomorrow, though. I am NOT looking forward to it. I really can’t stand them. I don’t HATE them, but the only good I see them doing for me is giving me food and clothes. I earn all my money on my own, its not like they ever give me any money. I can’t wait till I can drive so I don’t have to depend on them for transportation. Hopefully my dad won’t bug me much this week. Though neither of my aprents are worse, they’re equally horrific. My mom is annoying, nagging, and never shuts up about stupid stuff. My dad is prying, annoying, and clueless. They really are aggravating. I could rant on about my parents for another few hundred words or so, but I’ll spare you people.
Interesting past two weeks. Today’s update: I’m off MY computer for a week [until Monday], so I’m on my mom and dad’s. Probably won’t post until Monday again, so this is a long one. I got Vice City working, but that was a week or so ago. Been having lots of fun with that. I should be getting Halo PC on Friday or Saturday, though it depends on whether Ben invites me to his next party. I put out a message to all my customers to pay up on the whopping $132 they owe me. 32 goes to getting Halo PC. The rest is for my dad. I’ve got a $30 EB card and $10 Best Buy card, and I’ve got $15 right now, so I’m covered. If worse comes to worse, I can just go for the money Jonathan offered and use my EB card and 15 bux. It’s all good.
Concerning Daniel, Emma and Jesse, Daniel said he emailed Maria. He hasn’t given me what her response was, but I’m going to be interested in hearing it. I’m not angry about it anymore, now that I know what went down. Hopefully should all be in the past in a few days. I didn’t really gain much out of this experience, but I hope Daniel and Jesse learned something about me and my attitude. I can be fiesty sometimes, and when I get angry I show it. I know some of the things I said may not have been justified in my situation, but I felt they needed to be said in order to make my point at the time. I do appreciate y’all’s concern over me, but too much concern is very definately not a good thing.
So, I’ve gone through Halo PC, money, Vice City, friend problems, what else do I need to cover? Oh yeah. I’ve been forced to move back upstairs into my closet, and I’ll probably be staying up here for a while. I’ve moved our 13″ TV up and my XBox and PS1 up too, but the connection on the TV is so awful its not really playable. If I could get a new adapter I might be set, but I don’t have any. Oh well. At least this room has my clothes in it, and its not cold. Of course the only reason my other room was cold is because of the fact I leave the window open at night. Oddly enough, I sleep MUCH better when the outside air is cold, and I have enough coveres to keep me nice and cozy warm. It just puts me right to sleep. Heh, I can’t wait for snow. I wont enjoy the commute in school and crap, but that’s ok. So long as I can still wear my normal shoes without too much annoyance, it’s not too bad. That’s what lockers are for, right? Of course, now that it takes longer to get ready for school, it can take me anywhere from 15-20 minutes, depending on how much sleep I got the night before.
Wow. This was a LONG post. It should cover for the next week at least.
Apparantly Maria’s entire youth group is now praying for me because public school is ‘changing me’.
Daniel, Emma, Jesse, this is YOUR fault. You had absolutely NO RIGHT to go yelling to people completely uninvolved in this perceived ‘problem with me’. I said this before: there is no problem to be fixed, and I don’t want the help that you think I need. I am fine. I know myself better than you know me, and I know I am fine. Just leave it alone, I know what you think, but once again, it was COMPLETELY uncalled for and COMPLETELY out-of-line to go telling over a dozen other people of a problem I DON’T HAVE!
Look, all of you read the blog, and you gave me way too much grief over it. Stop trying to ‘save’ me or help me! Leave me alone!
Well I’m through Tuesday. I’m starting to love school. Despite the amount of time it requires, it really is enjoyable. Now all I need is a girlfriend… 😀
Well I have Vice City, but it doesn’t work. The Italian Readme was corrupted [conspiracy?]. Gonna get a new one soon hopefully. I now have a CD-RW. It works, as I have already tested it out with some Halo movies I’ll be giving to one of my friends.
I discovered I can get ready for school in a new record of 19 minutes [including shower!]. Yeah! I used to take 20 minutes just for the shower part. Hehehe.
Anyways, I have to go with my mom and dad [as if that weren’t bad enough] to dinner with one of their friends. This means I’ll have no time for anything tonight. If I want some time for later tonight, then I gotta do some homework, so, I better go do some homeworl, right? Right.
Well I’m back home on a Saturday near-afternoon. Last night was awesome. I went over with my 32″ TV, my XBox, Halo, a Hub, and we played some sweet 4 vs 3 Halo. Also played GTA3 and that about comprised our night. We had some pizza, but, the selection of coke, only being sprite, was really dissapointing. Who wants SPRITE with pizza? Oh well.
In any case, I’m back home, with all my stuff intact. On an odd note, Daniel called me in the middle of the party. I don’t know why. He went through all the trouble of fetching the number from the Luddy’s, and called me to say something that I couldn’t understand. I can’t call him now that he’s in Rochester for his guitar classes. Hopefully he’ll be back sometime in the near future.
Well not much is going down tonight, but tomorrow should be fun. After school I’m heading to Ben’s house, and I’m gonna spend the night. Hopefuly I’ll be bringing my xbox stuff, and we’ll play some Halo, and other stuff. I’m trying to negotiate a TV from my dad. I gotta do some homework soon, so this will be short.
Anyways. Tomorrow I’ve got a Global Studies Introduction Test. I’m taking all my classes for Honors credit now, so everything will start getting harder. Other than that, life is normal. Pfft. Yeah right.
*groan* Another friend made a Blog. Dont ask. Go to it right here.
Ahem. Anyways, I just about blacked out 5 seconds ago. It was the weirdest feeling. I got this sort of headache, then everything turned into black and purple. I stood there unable to think. It’s a really, really, really weird feeling. Think about not being able to think. Your brain stops completely. You just sit there. Really weird. I promptly sat down and shook my head several times.
School is getting better. More people are recognizing me as not so bad. I got my schedule changed around a bit, so this is what it looks like now.

Don’t talk to me about lunch, I know. In other news, my 86 bux Graphic Calculator came today. Now I need some games for it, from my friends. Hehehe. Anyways, sleep awaits me. Later people.
Sorry folks! It’s been 3 days since my last post. I hope you haven’t wasted your time checking too often.
The last few days have been cool. Friday Jonathan picked me up from school. We stayed up all night watching ‘National Security’, eating calzones, and playing Fusion Frenzy. It was awesome. And National Security is HILARIOUS. A lot of swearing a racial remarks, though. Anyways. On Saturday I took the German proficiency test, which I’m pretty sure I got an A on. After that I went to Sam’s birthday party, at his friend, Ben Myer’s house. That was really cool. We played Halo and Unreal Tournament and all kinds of other games. I met Ben, Jared, and Zach there. Weilin was there, but I already knew him. After that I watched the Two Towers, and then came Church. That was interesting, as in Sunday School we have about 15 people in our class. Then came the abstinence class, and that was the rest of my day. OH! I forgot! After I got back from the party Saturday, my video card had arrived. I installed it and it came with Serious Sam. Its an old FPS. Anyways, Saturday was uneventful. I went to Daniel’s house and we played Halo, but that’s about it. Went home, played CS, watched the Two Towers, and went to bed. School was also uneventful. I discovered shoving people out of the way is rather effective for getting to DDP. I also discovered that iBen Myers is in my DDP class. Never noticed!
Ah well. I should go get my uniform for Scouts on.
Finally through my 3rd day of school. Man am I TIRED. I have to get up at 10 tomorrow, since my German test is at 11. I’ll definately sleep well tonight. Hopefully.
School today was interesting. Got yelled at for being late to DDP, but it isn’t my fault. I have to walk across the entire school grounds to get there. And the teacher doesn’t care either. A little explanation. In period 5 I have German 2, which is in sector K. DDP is in the technology sector, sector E. Each sector is usually just a circle, essentially, with 1 or 2 sets of doors to the outside, and connections to other sectors. E is essentially a Freshman Homeroom sector and technology sector. It’s off to the far west. K is the exact opposite. Now, not only does it take over 2 minutes to walk from K to E, you can’t run. And on top of that, you have to walk through the G sector . The G sector is just a mess. They are always packed insanely full, and most of your time is spent shuffling through there. Oh well. I just gotta find a better way to get through.
I’ve learned to appreciate the weekends again. I’m so tired. Sooo very tired. I need some sleep, and lots of it.
Well, I’m through the second day of school. So far everything’s good. Nobody I knew from Dewitt seems to hate me, and and the ones that used to have either forgotten me or don’t hate me anymore! 😀 Though it’s really amusing to watch some people. None of them hace changed at all. Others, meanwhile, are completely new people. THough I have to say. Some of the girls aint so bad looking now 😉 Ah well. I realize why Freshmans are so different from the rest of people in high school. They’re still like what they were since Middle School, only maybe a bit taller, and in the case of guys, with deeper voices.
Nothing much really happened today. I got pulled outta school for an orthodontics apointent, then had an hour long German lesson. I think I’m gonna do okay on the test.
As I logged onto AIM, the little ‘AIM Today’ thing popped up. One of the headlines read this: ‘FBI: Dead Pizza Man Had Second Weapon’. Uhh, that’s gotta be the weirdest headline I’ve sson in a long while.
Wow. First day of high school. The first two hours were pretty boring indeed. I got to listen to the AP’s and all the big people say how ‘excited’ they are to have us Freshman here, blablabla. I really can’t stand people say the same stuff, trying to make it sound like they’re excited, but I know it’s not much of a change of pace for them. Every other year they’ll stumble upon some exceptional student who does amazing things, but that’s really as exciting as their job will get. Enough about them — on to my day!
After the ceremony-thingy, I went to my Homeroom, Briegle. Briegle is a going to be a pain. He’s obviously somewhat clueless and seems to enjoy making you do pointless stuff. But, thankfully, Homeroom isn’t even a class, however, I have him for DDP [Design and Drawing for Production]. DDP is gonna rock. We get to sit in big comfy roller chairs and design a ‘product’ on the computer, and then we make it. Not much homework, either! Anyways. I had Math with one of my friends from Dewitt, Charles, which is good. Earth Science will be pretty boring, I think. I should have taken Molecular Bio. I got switched into Honors German with Brofenbrenner, so that’s all good. PE is definately gonna be a pain in the butt to bring a change of clothes and all that junk. On the bright side, we get to do Archery as a segment later on! 😀 I’m not too bad at that, either. What else did I have … Global Studies will probably turn out like Math and Earth Science, boring, though we’ve got some interesting people in the class. One guy is named ‘Lord’, and we have 3 Sams in the room, including Sam Luddy. I have 2/6 study halls, and 1/6 science lab. The rest are all PE. All in the 3rd period. What a stupid way to set up a schedule. So, this is my schedule, layed out in a readble format!
1st Period: Math: Kuckes, D
2nd: Earth Science: Fast
3rd: [Days 1,3,5] PE, [Days 2] Earth Science Lab, [Days 4,6] Study Hall
4th: German 2: Brofenbrenner
6th: DDP: Briegle
7th: Global Studies: Shenk, 1st Semester, English: Cabrera, 2nd Semester
8th: Global Studies: Shenk, 1st Semester, English: Cabrera, 2nd Semester
Yup, that’s my schedule. Also, German looks pretty interesting. I’ve got 2 good friends in there, though the teacher looks like she gives tough assignments.
I just talked to my German teacher! She’s back Stateside and she called me 10 minutes ago. I’m going to do review of all we’ve done this summer on Thursday afternoon at 4 PM. Then, Saturday, I take the proficiency. I’m in Honors German 2, as well! Praise the Lord! Everything is smooth sailing from here on out, hopefully. Just gotta hit the books and study for everything! Thank goodness. I was getting really, really stressed about that. Now all I need to do is go to bed at 10:00 tonight, and wake up at 6:30 or 7:00. 🙂
Well I just talked to my parents. We came to one of those ‘agreements’ that you know you’ll screw up on in about 2 or 3 weeks, but they’ll never notice. So long as I don’t stay up past 10:30 and ‘do well in school’ I can stay down in my current room. Bwahaha. I have some skillz.
Was just talking to my parents. They’re gonna kick me out of my own room!!! I’m gonna be forced to be off the computer by 10:30! Argh! No anime! No nice room! No TV! No Xbox! What happens when Halo PC…when Halo2…when Fable come out??? Will I be stuck to stop playing at 10:30? For goodness sake!
Well this is the first time on this Blog-thingy. Daniel showed me and I decided to start my own. Cool stuff.
School starts tomorrow, and I’m gonna have to get up at 7:00 IN THE MORNING. I HAVEN’T GOTTEN UP THAT EARLY IN AGES. I just have to try and get to bed early, I guess. Thank goodness for alarms. I’ll get to see some friends I lost contact with over the last year. Hopefully they’ll remember me.
One serious aggravation concerning the coming school year is my German. I’m supposed to be going into German 2. I took some tutoring for German 1 over the summer, but my German teacher is vacationing in Germany right now. She’s the only one that can give me the proficiency test!!! I can’t change from German 2 Regents to German 2 Honors! I’m getting really, really angry.
Hopefully it will be resolved soon. That’s all for now.
