Depressing Things, Depressing Days


I guess it’s just one of those days.

You know, the one where you wake up gloomy, spend the day gloomy, and feel like crap in general?

I have several excuses to feeling gloomy. I took two tests today, none of which produced good results. Especially the writing exam. Which is quite ironic, considering that being a writer is my first career choice.

I’m also dissecting a frog tomorrow, and spent an hour looking at various photos of frog guts.

However, I still could’ve been cheerful with just those reasons. But to lose my EXPENSIVE, UNREPLACEABLE cell phone is just something that ruins my day. Cause you know what? Most kids find this a reason to replace their phone with a new one. I find it a reason to get yelled at by my parents, and the promises of never buying me one again.

So I feel it reasonable to sink into a teenager’s melodramatic woes of “OMG! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, THE WORST DAY OF MY RIDICULOUSLY SHORT LIFE~!”

Mind the caps.

I also blew all my money on chocolate.

With my considerable weight, this is something that’s impossibly dangerous, not to mention a complete waste of the only cash I had, as well as stupid. I really dunno why I did it. I think I’m naturally dumb.

Oh great. Now I’m turning into the people who whine, “I’m so stupid~I’m so UGLY~” just so they can get their friends to say, “NO YOU’RE NOT! OMG, YOU’RE SO PERFECT THAT I’D DIE TO BE YOU!!!”

Yeah. I’m a bitch today. Blah.

So, to conclude, I whined like a moron, I’ve turned into a complete female dog, and I have many reasons to wanting to get into a time machine and go back so that i’m at least ready for those freakin tests, NEVER lose my phone, and don’t buy chocolate.

Valentine’s Day


Yes, I’m referring to both the day and the movie.

Valentine’s Day, until now, has actually held no real meaning to me. Sure, we get group candy and a few rare adolscent couples pass around chocolate and tiny  candy hearts that says things like, “Will you be my valentine?”

Pathetic.

Valentine’s Day, in various areas of Korea, Japan, and perhaps China, is normally regarded as a huge day for a man’s pride. Girls dominate this day. They are the ones who decide the rise and fall of a man’s reputation in the romantic sense. Why else would you have numerous manga/drama/manhwa scenes that produce gut-wrenching scenes that show {insert good-looking male character here} opening his locker to find numerous candies and love letters fall out?

Yeah. As I said, pathetic.

So it was with great surprise that I found people regarding each other with a shyer attitude than usual. One of my best friends (yes, I have friends) decided that her hormones were fully awake and attracted to a particularily uninteresting specimen. And gave him candy.

This is actually no business of mine. But today, I was supposed to see a movie. Percy Jackson and the Olympians, if you must know. I enjoyed the book, and after watching the trailer, decided it would be worth paying nine dollars to stare up at a giant screen.

Or, so I thought.

The tickets were all sold out for my preferred time. The next showing was extremely late. So it was to my disgust that my friends, who had come along with me, asked for tickets to Valentine’s Day.

Which were not sold out.

I don’t enjoy watching people jam their lips together. Give me horror, give me thriller, give me blood and guts, but don’t drag me off to a movie that’s based on solid make-out scenes. It was enough with Taylor Swift’s horrible acting, but…

I really wish I hadn’t eaten all that popcorn.

So, my thoughts on the day and the movie?

It turned out to be unusually interesting. I don’t think I necessarily enjoyed the movie, and am still regretting paying nine dollars, but it had a good way with its humor. Thank the Lord Taylor Swift didn’t have a bigger part.

Valentine’s Day, in general, has had no influence on me, nor ever grabbed my attention. But with a pen pal in Korea who drills me on facts about “American” Valentine’s Day, it has, for once, taken up my interest.

I guess it’s not so bad, if I get my chocolate.
