So...I was signed up to take AP Spanish and AP Statistics on May 5th, but because the people running the AP exams this year at Kell are lame, they only ordered 2 exams instead of 12. So our whole class has to take the test on May 21st. I like it because I didn't want to take the exam with Statistics, nor did I have time to study before that. However, I really wish I didn't have it the Thursday before graduation. D: Not only am I unmotivated to do ANYTHING, I just feel like I don't have enough time to do all my senior crap. Eh.
I am going to Stetson University in Florida. I visited the campus during spring break and it was amazing. The college is very small, but it really allows for you to be a person there and not a number. I am SO excited about going there. It's only 20 minutes away from the beach and it is located near a really cute little college town. I got into the Honors Program there, so I get to have my dorm in the best residence hall. :D I only have to share a bathroom with 3 people (as opposed to about 30 people) and I am located with other honors students and seniors. It is awesome. O:
LOST was amazing last night. Great way to end the season, I say. House was okay. It was kind of predictable, but I still enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing the next season.
Hmm. I guess I'm going to go. O: I have to study for my biology final and I probably need to get started soon. I leave you with a little fandom thing that India tagged me for. O: I got tagged for LOST, Bleach, and Digimon. ♥ And yes, I am too lazy to do a lj-cut. SUX2BU, whores.
Comment to this entry and I'll pick three of your fandoms. You must then update your journal and answer the following questions:
01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?
01: I randomly started watching it when it was revealed that Sun could speak English (HOSHIT!). I was intrigued. O:
02: I will probably move on. O: It's great, but in order to stay in it, there will have to be a mystery, which there won't be much of if it's over. xD
03: Season 1 and Season 2 finales were AMAZING. O: Like really. I also loved the episode where Ben's past was revealed.
04: No, but I lurk it.
05: I think it probably has enough people, but the more the merrier. xD
01: I actually started to get into thanks for the anime club. One of the only anime that I was ever introduced to in the club.
02: I might or might not. I have a feeling I'll leave it before it ends, which is kind of sad. D:
03: Hmm, when Ichigo shows off his Bankai for the first time is pretty awesome. I know there are other episodes/chapters, but I just can't recall them right now.
04: I lurk forums. xD What can I say? I am a lurker! xD
05: No, I think this fandom has far too many people. D:
01: It was kind of a combination of events. My friend who had lived in Japan for a while kept trying to convince me to watch the show, but I thought it was just a knock off of Pokemon. One morning I was flipping htrough channels and I ran into the show during an episode where Ken was trying to convince the others that he was a good guy. I LOVED the show so much that I went back to the first season and watched it all. ♥
02: Yes~! I think I will always stay in this fandom. It has amazing people and I just love discussing the show.
03: Really, I have SO many episodes. I LOVE the Vamdemon arc in Digimon Adventure, the episodes revolving Ken in 02, the Shibumi episode and the Jogress evolution with Guilmon and Takato in Tamers, and the 48th episode in Frontier (although this last one is probably the only one I like in Frontier D: ).
04: I buy collectibles, I discuss in on forums/LJ communities, I watch all the episodes and talk about them on digitalrewind, and sometimes I make icons. Seriously, I love this fandom. I have been thinking about doing cosplays for a while, but I don't think I have the ability to do it. xD
05: Hells yeah! The fandom will always need more people.

So...lots of stuff has happened since the last time I posted publicly. O: My grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer. My grandmother got the tumor removed without incident. My grandmother is now undergoing radiation. And now my grandmother has to use medicare because both she and her husband are out of work. D: We've been sending them money, but now their car is broken down, and it costs $3000 to fix it - money they obviously don't have. D:
However, before all that, just after she got her surgery, my mom, my grandmother, and myself all went to Amelia Island in Florida on the 20th and stayed there for 3 days. :] We had a lot of fun and I have a bunch of pictures still on my camera. Comment if you want me to upload them. xD
Anyway, after I returned from Florida I got sick and was out all last week. Fortunately, it seems my makeup work consists only of tests and quizzes - incredibly easy to make up. I tell you, high school is all bull. I hope college is different.
I've been playing the Sims 2 and Team Fortress 2 for a while now and have been having lots of fun. xD Yeah, I'm not usually into gun games, but TF2 is actually a lot of fun. I'm glad my brother talked me into playing.
I don't know if I'm going to prom or not. My mom says I'll regret it if I don't go, but I don't have anyone to go with. Ashley B. is the only one I know that is going without anyone and the rest of my friends are going with dates. D: I also don't know if I really want to spend that kind of money on a dress and if it really is worth it to go. I don't know, proms are just so cliché.
Oh, and to any of my friends that are thinking about taking AP Statistics - DON'T. Stop your thoughts right there or I will digitally kill you. I'm currently failing that class with a 69% - by far, the worst I have ever done in a class (excluding 7th grade when my butthole Orchestra teacher assured me that I hadn't turned in my practice forms and failed me with a 60%). I think I'm going to do horribly in math when I go to college because it just doesn't make sense to me. D:
Question: Has anyone ever chewed spearmint gum and gotten a severe pain in their mouth, almost near where the molars form? It only happens when I have spearmint gum and it is a burning sensation. Quite painful. D:
I really want this: http://www.squishable.com/pc/
I got accepted to a couple of colleges. Stetson University was the first to accept me and they offered me a $54,000 scholarship to attend. I'm definitely considering it. LSU also accepted me, but I really don't want to go there. At all. I only applied because I was freaking out and I thought I wouldn't be accepted any place, so I clicked on the first free application e-mail I found and said "Hells yeah" and sent it. O: Now that I've been accepted elsewhere with a scholarship, I'm not even considering attending. Stetson > LSU anyday.
I'm still waiting on the majority of my decision letters though. I have this big fear that most of them will come back as rejections, so I'm glad that I at least have one place I'm accepted to. *sigh* I suppose I'll find out soon enough.
Does anyone know if you have to put both parents' information on the FAFSA? I've had many, many, many people tell me I have to, but when I said that my parents were divorced, they never let me put in my dad's information. I asked my friend, Ashley E., if she had the same thing happen to her and she said yes. I would be enthralled if I could get aid without my dad's information, but I don't want to file my FAFSA incorrectly and get no aid. D:
Hmm, I'm sure there's LOTS more stuff I haven't said since the last time I posted, but I suppose this is a long enough post. xD
So I'm really enjoying life right now. =] I was REALLY stressed and sad last weekend over colleges because I found out I don't qualify for financial aid because of my dad's income level (and he won't pay anything for it). But this week I got nominated for my school's Emory Scholarship. :D
This week I got out four college applications, two of which were scholarship applications in conunction with regular applications. I applied to University of Vermont, Georgia Tech with Presidential Scholarship, Emory University with Scholarship, and Oxford at Emory University. I was so busy this week getting all the essays done and stuff, that I was a bit stressed to say the least.
BUT NOW I'M SO RELIEVED! :D I got all my urgent stuff out the door and in the mail and I don't have to worry about getting the other applications due anytime soon.
I get to vote on Tuesday and I am really excited about it. =] I was supposed to work the polls again, but I never got around to taking the classes again, which were WAY too long. Ah well, I'm just really excited about the election and I have done a lot of homework on the candidates this year. =]
I have a LOT of Spanish homework this weekend, unfortunately. D: I have been putting it all off for this month's reading and listening portfolios for my college applications and other events that have been going on this month. So I'll be spending all day Sunday doing my Spanish stuff. D:
Then tomorrow morning I have to do the SAT Subject Tests. I haven't studied at all, nor did I know how to. I'm doing the Literature and Biology tests. I decided to do the Molecular Biology exam since I'm in AP Biology now and that is what we are learning right now.
Tonight I sat outside to give out candy, but there were hardly any trick or treaters this year! I think only about 20 children hit our house this year, so it wasn't much fun. D: I went in early because it was too cold out and I had no shoes. xD
Today an old student visited my AP Biology class. He explained how he was studying stem cells at UGA and it sounded so interesting. He really made me want to go to college - it sounds like such a relaxed atmosphere. I can't wait to get to college. :DDD
Anyway, I'm going to go to bed. =] Night!
So, last year Nina, my former best friend in middle school and early high school, got into a fight with me. It was an idiotic fight, but a fight nonetheless. Nina thought for some reason that I had been treating Ashley really badly recently. As in, I treat her stupid. When she IMs me this, I had had a TERRIBLE day. I mean, I had been sobbing at school all day over the stress of AP exams and getting my grades in order, that I just SNAPPED. I told her to "Shut the fuck up" because I was so angry over the hypocrisy of what she had said to me. While I admit that I had snapped at Ashley that day, I had not been treating Ashley badly in the general. Yes, I would joke around about getting mad at Ashley or whatever, but I was never truly mad at her. However, last year I saw where everyone showed their true colors. My "friends" abandoned me, leaving me to myself, with the exception of a couple of friends (you know who you are). I felt utterly alone and really depressed.
Over the summer I sent Nina a PM on Gaia saying that I was sorry, sucking up my feelings of anger so that we could repair our friendship. Honestly, this was a big step for me because I never apologize - it is a major flaw of mine. I thought that Nina would in turn apologize, but I only got a reply saying "I forgive you." Honestly, I expected an apology because we both over-reacted to the situation, but as always, I was the one to apologize.
So when I got back to school, things were so awkward and I had to apologize to Nina upfront and I lied about getting the PM because honestly I didn't want to admit that I hadn't replied to her "I forgive you" message.
Things never really got to be the same again. We have hardly talked this year, and when we did talk it was about nothing at all - small talk, really. Nina has been rolling her eyes at me about the things I say and do in joke, and in respect to her anger over Ashley, I have been less "mean" to Ashley in front of her. Ashley has also been distant with me this year, I suppose because she took Nina's side last year. Something I look back on and wonder why since she never listened to my side of the story, but whatever, I never had a true grudge over it.
So I log on my computer this evening and have this oh-so-wonderful conversation with Nina tonight.
( Read more... )
So now I will have a repitition of last year - no one to talk to me, no one that will be on my side, nothing. I will be alone AGAIN. Because my closing comments are something I feel really deeply about - Nina is a bully. She bullies people into doing what she wants and screw what everyone else thinks. People think bullies are people that beat people up, but girls are the worst bullies - they gossip behind your backs and hit your emotions and hurt you bad.
And to be honest, I'm absolutely PISSED at Ashley. I know where Nina got the bullshit about her not voting - I told Ashley the other day that Nina didn't know who the president was in 9th grade. I ALSO told Ashley that Nina was probably more educated on the topic now and that I shouldn't base it on that, but I guess Ashley just HAPPENED to leave that detail out. Or perhaps Nina glossed over it. Either way, it's BS.
I spoke no lies in that conversation with her, although I still don't think I managed to convey all things I feel about her at the current moment. Because honestly, I think I hate her. Not in the "I dislike you and I don't want you to be around me" kind of way, but the "I HATE you and I wish I had never met you" kind of way. She attacked my very character and being tonight, whether she wants to admit it or not.
So yeah, I hope some of my words got through to her because maybe she'll have a happier life. In the end, I doubt it will, and it probably won't matter - bitches like that make it in life, but, as they say in France, "c'est la vie".

Although I am going to be working the polls for the primaries coming up here in Georgia. :D I get $150 out of the deal and I only have to take 3 classes on it and then work one day. I already took one class, but I really don't feel prepared. xD
I've been thinking about getting a job at an animal hospital or something. :/ I need to get a job for when I send out my applications for colleges, and since I don't really have a lot of extra-curricular activities that I really shine at, I think a job would be the best way to go. Does anyone know how colleges look into that sort of stuff?
My step-uncle is here right now and will be staying for the next week and a half. He decided to call us on Thursday and he told us he was showing up on Saturday to stay for a couple of days. As it was, we were really pissed because I don't know about you guys, but I like warning before someone is coming to visit. When he came, he told us that he was going to be staying for two weeks. D: I find him to be stupid and annoying, so it really irritates me that he is here. Although I know I will regret thinking that when he gets shipped off to Iraq. D:
I took my SATs on Saturday morning and I feel alright about them. I at least answered all the questions on the "fill in your own answer" mathematics section, something I was never able to do on the practice exams I took.
Other than that it's been a really boring summer vacation. :D I've watched all the Digimon episodes available from ryuu_rogue and I really want them to get them all done soon. :D I really love the series in Japanese so much more. ♥
I've also been watching reruns of Dexter. I really want that show to be out soon, but it's not until September/October that new episodes come out. D:
I'm thinking about throwing a sleepover soon. Would anyone on here be interested? :D
As a 1930s wife, I am
Find Out Which Disney Girl You Are!
created with QuizFarm.com
|You scored as Mulan|
A free spirit, a beautiful soul, all things that most people would tag on a lovely girly girl - but you're more boy than anything! Sometimes you're considered a 'nerd' or 'dork', but that just comes with the package - you even embrace your inner nerd. Go you!
But yeah, seriously, I really hope they aren't too hard. D: I hate how your SATs score really determine so much. D:
I've been walking a lot lately. I really hope I lose some weight over the summer. If not, at least my dog got some much-needed exercise. :3
I watched every season of House in my first 2 weeks of summer vacation. :D Fun stuff. Now I'm working on rewatching Digimon Adventure and Avatar. :D
Yesterday was my brother's birthday and he turned 12. :3 He got a cell phone, which he has really been wanting and we went to Medieval Times down near Atlanta on Saturday. It was fun to watch the jousting and stuff, but I think it was a bit overpriced. Although the stuff they sell at the giftshops was surprisingly NOT overpriced and I got four dragon figurines for my collection for only $45. Very cheap! Those things are really expensive usually and good quality figurines are hard to find. Very happy I got them. :D
I got my grades in the mail earlier this week. I got all As and Bs, and I am so happy. I was really worried about my AP Computer Science class. If you're from my school and are thinking about taking the class, DON'T. STOP RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE NOW. RAWR. But yeah, really happy about the grades.
I want my schedule for next year already. D: I really want to know if I got into all the classes I wanted and whether or not I did sign up for Graphic Arts or not (I can't remember).
I guess that's it. Oh, and I'm pimping some new icons now. I really needed to change them up. :D
Anyway, I'm getting ready to go to my friends' graduation. I get to go because NHS needs people to hand out programs.
Afterwards, I go to my friend India's party at Dave and Busters and then we go to a hotel. My problem is that I don't know where the hotel is and I'm not sure how we're getting to the hotel from D&Bs. I hope the parents are not supposed to stay that whole time or whatever, because my mom can't. D: I also lost all the invitation information for the second time because my stupid YIM archives exploded. D:
I love being able to write in more than one language. I really want to be able to learn more languages. :3
So...finals went well I think. I got an 88 on my Trig. final and a 98 on my Spanish IV final (highest of all the classes o: ). I also know I have a 95 in my Health class and an 83 in my APUSH class. I'm not sure what I got in my Lit. class, but I feel pretty good about it - I had an 89 in the class and we had an EOCT, which probably raised my grade to a 90, and the final was only 5% of my grade. The final was also 200 questions wrong, so my chances of an A have probably gone up. :3 The only class I am super worried about is my AP Computer Science class, which I just don't know about. :/
I AM DONE! o:
Besides that, the only thing I am freaking out over is my Spanish project and my finals. Good times. =]
Congratulations to India on getting into SCAD! =D I'm so happy for you! ;D
I am obsessed with House right now. o: Love that show. xD
That's it. ♥
