Song of the day: Westlife - Starlight

So I had parent/teacher conferences today. Or, more realistically, my parents had them and dragged me along. I did stop by my school's book fair, though, and I got two bookmarks, one scented tri-highlighter, and one fuzzball pen. Then, on the way home, after my mum went to do something else, my father and I stopped off at McDonald's for an early lunch. (It reminded me of that one Onion article about a man who had lunch at 10:30, except I ate at 11:30. I still felt just as rebellious, though)

Also, tangentially related, but I have a draft of a paper due on Thursday, and I just started working on it in earnest today. (Besides the outline.) So, I have some serious work to do this weekend. Thankfully, as leftovers of the PSAT, I don't have too much homework besides that, so I can concentrate.

Speaking of leftovers, for some reason my family went to Cracker Barrel today. I got their chicken and dumplings, which I had never had before. The portion size was absolutely massive (it looked like they were trying to feed Michael Phelps with one serving), and most of it went in the to-go box. I also picked up some gifts on the way out. Overall, today was pretty good. It also rained! Sadly, it looks like that was the last rain for the time being. Oh well.

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: LIGHTSUM - Vivace

So this morning I took the PSAT. Woo. Even the pre-test process felt like I was going through the TSA (though I have no personal frame of reference for that). And of course my pencils were dull, but just sharp enough that they were barely usable. But nonetheless, I survived. Even if it did mean that I spent a combined 45 or so minutes staring at the ceiling after I finished the various exams.

Our new high school principal as proctoring, and it's scary how being in an exam environment can make a cool person come off as intimidating. Every time I sensed her coming in my general direction, I was horrified that I'd done something wrong. But such is life in the world of standardized exams. Also, apparently we aren't allowed to bring in books to read after finishing the test. I remember doing the ACT Aspire or whatever it was called in 8th grade, we were allowed books. I think we even were in the Pre-ACT last year. I wonder when that restriction came in? Oh well.

I ended up spending a full ten minutes or so comtemplating the nature of lighting. Testing does that to one's brain. Anyways, the bright side was that toward the end of the exam period, it started pouring rain. At first, I wasn't sure, since it sounded a lot like the ventilation system, but it turned out to be rain! Also, my parents had a conference with my English teacher right after school today (or rather, 25 minutes after school). It actually went pretty well! Despite my fears, she didn't have any complaints, though she had a lengthy discussion with my parents about something or other.

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Emma Bunton - Coming Home For Christmas

It's Thanksgiving in Canada! So happy Thanksgiving to Canadian people if y'all celebrate it. And so as Thanksgiving has passed somewhere, I'm allowing myself to start listening to Christmas carols! I don't want to be one of those people who puts up tinsel on November 1st, but I can't help getting in that holly jolly mood inside my mind for now. I just love winter!

Also, I have a human geo one pager due tomorrow. I. HATE. ONE. PAGERS. Anyways, I just printed out most things and will make a couple drawings tomorrow during my study time. I hope I never have to do one of these again. Thank God I think I get another teacher next year. Hopefully she's not so one-pager-happy. It'll be nice to have some change as well. The same teacher three years in a row, unless you absolutely love the teacher (which thankfully is normally the case for me) can be very tiring.

Also, it finally rained again today! It started pouring during my first period French class, but sadly it had died down a bit by the time class was over so I couldn't see it. At least it rained, though!

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Propellerheads - Take California

So today I've been working a lot on my site! I noticed a problem with the firework click effect (yadda yadda something about the width of the page). Anyways, thanks to the Yesterweb discord server, I managed to find a fix which should be implemented soon! I also finally got around to updating the Verivery history page! I also found out about webgarden, which seem super cool! I started making one.

Also, I have way too much homework this weekend. Specifically, bio. I like the class pretty well, but there's a lot of articles and Web quests and stuff. Web quests are good in moderation, but too many are not good. I also have to highlight an article. Oh well. I'll have to do a lot of that tomorrow :( Here's to hoping next week will have less work!

Also, I think I want to start reading Pride and Prejudice. I'm getting close with to finishing Emma and I loved the BBC series, which if y'all have read my entries from a month or two, y'all would know well. (Colin Firth!!!!!!!!!)

Also, Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton finally put out a song together! I love both their music, and I loved the episode of Reba guest starring Dolly Parton, and I love the song! I can't believe it took them so long to record together but I'm glad they finally did!

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Girls' Generation - Party

I'm so excited for Verivery's concert! To think that they'll even be within a few hundred miles of them is super cool! I remember when they went to KCON back in 2019 I was in a Verrer group chat and I was this close to begging my parents to go to whatever city it was in. And the tour tickets are only $55 so they're super affordable!

Also, for some reason, my parents bought more gum last time they went to the grocery store. So naturally, in less than a week I've gone through about three quarters of it. I might have a bit of a problem. Or maybe I just love gum. Who knows?

Also, tomorrow I have the day off! Woot woot! Tomorrow teachers have to write our comments so we get the day off. So naturally, I'm going to have to spend all morning convincing myself to actually do my homework, which I have a decent amount of. I have a mitochondria propaganda poster for bio and probably some other stuff I've forgot about so I've got to work work work this weekend!

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Miley Cyrus - Start All Over

So I've been playing some more BTS World! I've reached chapter 4 and I think I'm doing pretty well! I love getting new cards and upgrading them, it's so fun! Speaking of k-pop, Verivery announced a US tour today! It's kind of strange that their first tour isn't even in Asia, but whatever will be, will be, I suppose. Speaking of Verivery, I need to get around to updating my Verivery page soon, especially the history. I'd do it to night but it's getting late!

Also, I have a four-day week both this week and next week for a teacher work day and parent-teacher conferences. Woot woot! Though I'm kind of nervous about what my teachers will say. Oh well! I suppose I just need to put in some extra effort to be very kind. Come to think of it, I think that's a good thing to do every day.

Also, I have an English quiz tomorrow. I hope I do well! I think I've grasped the concepts well. I also had a precalc this morning, delivered by my 5th grade teacher, (she subs occasionally this year, and my normal precalc teacher was absent.) Anyways, she played jazz music whilst we were taking the quiz. I don't know whether or not I liked it. Hmm.

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: GFRIEND - Glass Bead

So I've been playing a tonne of BTS World recetnly! I'm about halfway through Chapter 3, and would be a lot farther if I wasn't such a perfectionist. (I normally make myself replay each level until I get three stars) Anyways, I love the game! I wonder if any other groups I like have games...

Also, I'm considering getting back into writing for fun! The past couple of days, I've gradually come up with an AMAZING idea for a story. I don't want to say what it is (for some reason I'm super secretive about things I work on until I finish them.) Anyways, it was inspired by the string of historical gay romances I've been reading recently. I love them so much!

Also, just my luck, I have a French packet due tomorrow that I forgot at school! Woot woot! And so I'm going to go in early, and, God willing, get it done before my first period French class.

Also, I've been watching a lot of The Nanny tonight! I've jsut finished my third episode right now, although the first two were cut a bit short because the rain interfered with the satellite signal when I recorded them. But anyway, I watch a clip from one of them earlier today by coincidence! I also watched some Murder, She Wrote today. Overall, it's been a pretty good weekend, although a bit too short. I get the next two Fridays off for teacher work days and parent/teacher conferences, so the next ones should be even better!

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Trisha Yearwood - She's In Love With The Boy

So at last, the world's longest week has come to an end. In my Human Geog class, we've been watching Don't Panic by Hans Rosling, which talks about how overpopulation isn't really as much as of a problem as some people think. (It talks about "peak child" and the predicted peak population of 11 billion and stuff like that.) Anyways, I've kept working on my English essay recently, which (if y'all were interested) is about comparing The Importance of Being Earnest with (wait for it...) Hannah Montana. Yes, it's as ridiculous as it sounds.

Meanwhile, I've been playing a lot of BTS World recently, and it's a great game! I would recommend for y'all to download it. :)

Anyways, today and yesterday (and maybe the day before it? I've lost track), it's finally rained! It was so relieving when the rain started! Also, God willing, we're officially into autumn weather now that it's October. (I mean, last year my area got our first snow in October, so...) On Wednesday the high was 30 or so, but now it's finally back down to the mid-20s! I'm ready for cooler weather :D

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: BTS - Butter

So I've had a bit of a mood whiplash these past two days. Yesterday everything seemed to be annoying me for one reason or another, which wasn't helped by 1) an awkward conversation with my math teacher (I asked her for more notecards after I had run out and she said I was being too assertive with the notecards, which confused me a bit but oh well) and 2) a whole heap of other annoyances to make for a crap day.

Meanwhile, today was much better! I was determined to not have a crap day, and so my day got off to a pretty good start when I heard the Backstreet Boys on the radio on the way to school. Not even hearing Maroon 5 on the radio could bring me down!

And then, in my French class, we got to go outside for a bit and it wasn't that bad! Then, we had a fun day in biology (bio-related games and stuff) and a decent lunch! I got my English essay back after that (at last, the suspense is over!) and got a 98! And then I did a scene in my acting class which went well. And finally, about an hour or so after I got home, it started to rain!

Meanwhile, I have an essay due for my current events class a few weeks from now (at least the first draft) and an English essay rough draft due Friday. Other than that, I think that AP is just the big bad in terms of workload. I meant to do my Human Geo homework tonight, but got caught up and so didn't. It's due Friday so I'd better remember!

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!
