I need a break.


I will attempt to start this post in a typical teenage fashion:

“Okay, so, guys. Hi. I’ve been kinda dead for the past few days (more like years, haha) cause of school. Oh my God, I HATE school. And my math teacher is a total–”

You get my point.

Unfortunately, what I say is true. I’m becoming insane stressed more and more lately, which, while having the unhappy effects of general crankiness and dark circles, has the benefit of me losing weight.

Not that that’s a good thing.

So, to narrow it down, my stress becomes two major things in life:

*School

*My future.

Which is frankly ridiculous, but tell that to society. I understand the importance of school, to be educated, and therefore have a job that pays a certain amount of salary to keep me alive for about fifty years, but quite honestly, it’s rather intense for it to sprout dreams of riches and fame while you’re young, and squash it in middle school, as you see your genius classmates seperated from the lowly commoners.

To establish hiearchy among teenagers is a terribly cruel thing to do.

But I desist. My school isn’t one of those horrible places mentioned in a typical chick read. We don’t have the cruel, evil, beautiful, and rich cheerleaders. We don’t have muscular, idiotic jocks. Sure, we divide into our seperate groups, but in the end, no one really bothers to bully anyone. Of course, there are those really weird kids, and then the kinda nerdy ones, but who cares? The “popular” kids are friends with all of them. So, why do people say that high school establishes hiearchies of the modern society? From what I see, there’s just too many kids to keep track of, to see who’s popular and who’s not.

So, to finish my rant here, I want to say that the people who write those books are stupid. Those who makes the TV shows, the movies, even video games, are really really idiotic. Why endorse these things when kids are what they are?

Anyways, this post is mainly to stress out the fact that I’m being tortured to death slowly, and that I am taking advantage of a strangely non-tortureless Friday. Nevertheless, I hope all of you are enjoying your weekends. I’ll try to post something about various obsessions in my life, and I’ll see you again soon.

Cheerio,

The Year in Review-Part One


I supposed with two days left for the start of a new decade, this is a good time as any to reminisce 2009–a time of deaths, flaws, and craziness that just keeps on getting better.

So, the biggest death of the year: Michael Jackson.

I remember the first time I saw his picture. I just thought he was some overly induced celebrity with a bad makeup specialist.  The King of Pop was a vague figure for me, of no particular interest. So why was I so shocked at the news of his death?

I think it’s because all human beings have the semblance of being immortal.

A lifetime, when you think about it, seems to go on forever. Until you’re in your nineties, you feel like death is light years away. Don’t shy away and deny it; you probably think so too. The prospect of death is an unknown matter, and for some reason, it feels like the person who died is still alive.

I’m getting to philosophical. Anyways, moving on.

According to Yahoo, these were the top ten deaths of 2009:

1.) Michael Jackson (Big surprise)

2.) Farrah Fawcett (I have no idea who she is, but apparently, she’s a big “icon of the 70’s”)

3.) Patrick Swayze (Only watched him in Ghost)

4.) Natasha Richardson (This was a big shock; she died of such a little event)

5.) Jett Travolta (This was just sad.)

6.) Billy Mays (I was literally screaming, “HE’S DEAD??” when I heard the news)

7.) David Carradine (Eh…never saw his “big Bruce Lee” movie)

8.) Steve Mcnair (His death was just…disturbing.)

9.) Jade Goody (Who is she?)

10.) Ted Kennedy (Need I say more?)

I guess these people are up on that list because it’s a big shock that they died, they were big important people, or they were just too famous to be left off the list.

Anyways, moving on.

2009 was a pretty disastrous year all told. Sure, we had Obama move into the Oval Office, recieve the Peace Prize, and promise to make things better for our country. I’m only concerned to when people are going to start calling him names. Sometime in 2011?

The gloomy Mayan prediction weren’t all that great either. The Mayans probably don’t care, since they’re dead. But to go to the extents of making a blockbuster movie, write several books, and make such a big deal about it isn’t too nice to our younger generation. I mean, think about a kid born in 2012: “Oh, sorry for letting you be born, since you’re going to die anyways in December.”

That’s soooo nice.

Besides these deaths, 2012 BS, and the “OMG-OBAMA-IS-IN-THE-OVAL-OFFICE-STOPPING-TERRORISTS” news blasting around, there was also the financial crisis, North Korean bomb scares, and, of course, the fact that I gained several million pounds. But, for personal news, go check out part two.

To you Koreans-Happy Birthday! You’re one year closer to death. (For those of you who don’t know, Koreans age differently. They still have birthdays, but grow one year older every new years day. So, if you were born in 1987, you’d be 24 now. I am now (CENSORED) years old. Yippee.)

Anyways, have fun in 2010. I know that many of you wanted to leave this decade behind.
