Again, sorry for not posting. I just haven't really felt like it.
It's New Years Eve! I'm just going to watch a bunch of movies tonight. Tomorrow I'm going shopping with some friends. Yay! ^^
I have found myself addicted to facebook... Oh, no... At least it's not MySpace...
It snowed! There is snow on the ground! How dare you sky, HOW DARE YOU?! (It rained last week and there was barely any snow and it was getting pretty warm... Dangit!)

I'm just looking around the internet aimlessly while I wait for my friend to call me back. :)
I guess I'll talk about what I received for Christmas...

From my grandmother, a bunch of Copic Sketch markers (which my mum obviously bought) and this sweet GIR hoodie! (I just can't imagine my grandmother in Hot Topic without me...)

From my aunt, $20. And a cute card with puppies. ^-^ I'm gonna buy screentones tomorrow with it! w00t!

From my parents, a [nice] sewing machine, many more Copics, and some cool guitar picks. ^-^

Tomorrow we're going to see my dad's side, so I'll be getting a few more prezzies then... Hopefully new Chuck Taylors! (hopeful)

I went sledding with my mother, brother, and my friend, Donald. We were only gone for an hour. (laugh)

My brother, the genius.
He was on Club Penguin, on a Portuguese server, for some reason.
"They call Santa 'Papa Noel.' What's noel mean?"
(me) "Christmas celebration."
"So... Papa... Christmas..."
"FATHER Christmas!"
"Oh!"
...Yeah.

Anyway!
I'm going to my grandmother's in about an hour and a half. I dunno if we're opening any prezzies tonight or not. I hope so! :D
Though I don't expect to get much, since my grandmother is taking my family to Disney World this spring. (I'm only excited about the plane ride... Disney just isn't my thing...)

This should keep us all thinking...


Watch it. Think about it. Pass it on!
I'm so pumped up right now!
(Seriously, watch it. It will be worth your time, I promise.)

~*~
Now some random questions! Because I have nothing better to post!

Do you go to church? Yep!

Do you pray? Every night, and whenever I feel the pressing need to pray for someone.

Do you wear contacts or glasses? Yep. Both. Glasses right now.

Who is your favorite reality TV star? I don't watch reality television. (except for the below one)

What is your favorite reality TV show? Does Last Comic Standing count?

Do you color your hair? Heh, yeah, a lot.

How often do you wear makeup? Eyeliner when I go places. Sometimes eye shadow. That's it.

Describe yourself in three words. A boring girl.

Describe your best friend. What? No word limit? Well, I don't want to go on all day (laugh), so let's just say the best friend anyone could ever have.

What is your favorite thing to wear? Hoodies!

Do you wear jewelry? Just two rings (one being my purity ring) and a cross necklace. Oh, and I'm wearing an anklet right now, too...

What car would you love to buy if you could afford it? Jeep! A Jeep! A real one. Where the top can come down. And it gets all tippy when you take sharp corners.

Christmas in three days!
My family finally put up our tree the other day! And the decorations today. Yay! Usually we do it a few days after Thanksgiving!!!
I went to the orthodontist today, and now my mouth hurts. Big surprise there. T_T

Okay, this is pretty much the best quote ever:
"Because you love me, I spend my time wishing you could understand. Because I love you, I spend my time praying you'll never understand. I wish I could be like you. I wish you knew how much I love you. I wish you knew how often you save my life."

Nothing going on to write about. I guess I'll go watch House now...

Yep, I changed the template!
And, YES, I figured out how to add the comments option! So I don't think I'll go back to my old template, I'm going to stick with templates from blogskins.com.
I drew a realistic girl last night! It's supposed to be Chii from Chobits. Feedback? I haven't drawn in this style in 8+ years.
Four days until Christmas! It doesn't feel like Christmas here at all. We don't even have a tree yet! My father and I went to get one yesterday, but it's still in the back of the truck. I put up some lights around the windows in the dining room, and a tiny tree on the table, but that's all the decor in this house. T_T
I wasn't feeling too well, so I didn't go to school last Thursday. Then on Friday we had a snow day (it was blizzardy!). So no more school for two weeks!
Friday my family and I went to see Yes Man. That's actually a pretty good movie! I really liked it.

Movies I want to see:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Day the Earth Stood Still
✓ Yes Man
Changeling

Have a good Christmas!

Yesterday was an interesting day. I mostly hung out with my friend, Donald. Fun! ^^ Then I had to go with my mother to drop some stuff off for this auction we're going to today, but when we got there, there was some Christmas thing going on and no on setting up for the auction! (It's being held at a school.) So that was a waste of an hour. T_T But when I came back home, I IMed Donald and had an email convo with another friend, Erik. Aaand I went to bed at 1:oo am. And that was my day.

Monday, 8 December 2008


Well... I was pretty pissed earlier today... On the bus today, one of my classmates saw me sit down next to my guy-friend, and, of course, we received the usual question. "Are you guys going out?" T_T We get asked that a lot. But then, this guy wouldn't shut up! He is SO obnoxious. About ten minutes later he practically shouted, "*bleep* likes Courtney!" (the bleep is my guy-friend's name.) THAT was embarresing. And he kept going on! So I turned around and told him to SHUT UP. That kinda ruined the bus ride. The stupid comment, not what I said. We just kinda sat there... Incredibly embarrassed... Not talking... Well, I'm not sure if he was embarressed, but I'm sure that he was. GAH.
Then, later yet, that same obnoxious guy, after confessing his love to a middle schooler ("TORI! I love you! Tori! Tori! Tori! This is my song to you! [<-- The song on the radio] TORI!") he leaned over the seat and asked my guy-friend, "Is this your song to Courtney?" T_T GREEEAAT. Make an already very uncomfortable bus ride even MORE uncomfortable. Thank you very much!

It was about five minutes later that I realized that that song was a happy break-up song (a guy singing about how much better his life is now that she's gone). 
Moron. 

So... Last Friday I spent the night at Chelsie's with a bunch of my friends (Katie, another Katy, Stacey, and Angel). It was muy fun! We watched a TON of movies (The Outsiders, The Invisible, Kung-Fu Panda, Jeff Dunham, The Simpsons Movie, and Patch Adams. After I left they also watched Jackass unrated... I'm SO glad that I wasn't there when they did! Angel told me that she spent most of the movie looking AWAY.


A cookie for anyone who can guess what movies these pictures are from!

Hm.


Yeah... Well, my internet is down. Partly. I can get on websites, but I can't do some things... Like reply to messages on dA or browse through art on dA, or check my page on dA... Yeah, I want to be on dA.
Like always, there is nothing going on. Really. Unless you want to hear about my Bio and Health tests! ...Yeah. Didn't think so.
Hmm...! Maybe I'll go on a walk. After I get some food! I'm hungry!
ONOMNOMNOMNOM...

Hey! There's a story right there, in my signature!
Today in History class, we did a reiactment (major spelling issues!) of Ellis Island. It was actually pretty fun! We went through three stations... One where they looked at our "birth certificate" (which we created in three minutes before we went down to the Media Center) and gave us a new name. T_T I was... Basketball Court! What kind of name is that?! Of course, I suppose it is better than what my male friend's name was changed to... Michelle! XDDD
Then, after they stole most of my "money" at the currency exchange station, I went to the, eh, station where they see if you're healthy. I refused to do the chicken dance, so I was quarentined. T_T ...And that is the story behind that strange signature!

Only in America...

I've posted this before, on my old blog. However, when I posted it then, everybody seemed to overthink it. It's just funny, okay?! I'm not insulting the US or anything... I didn't even make this up! Just... Don't overthink it. :)


Only in America... can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance...
Only in America... do people order double cheese burgers, a large fry and a diet coke...
Only in America... do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters...
Only in America... do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and leave useless things and junk in boxes in the garage...
Only in America... do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place...
Only in America... do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight...
Only in America... do we use the word politics to describe the process so well. Poli in Latin meaning many and tics meaning blood sucking creatures...

Mm-hmm... So, Thanksgiving was fun. I played with my eleven-year-old cousin and listened to my mother and aunt talk. Then, afterwards, my family went to the movies, per tradition. We saw Four Christimases... Gah, I hate holiday movies. They're all the same. And none of them will be remembered in ten years. Well, except for Christmas Vacation. That's a great movie!

I'm... I'm supposed to be doing Biology homework right now. Yeah... Now working out so well. I'm waiting for my dad to come back home so I can ask him what "mechanism of infection" is supposed to mean...

For your entertainment purposes: The Allen and Craig Show! Episode 9. (These guys are freaking hilarious! Seriously, at least watch the beginning.)

Craig reminds me of Eric Foreman from That '70s Show, and Allen reminds me of Reese from Malcolm in the Middle. The similarities are frightening!

Cinema Bizarre


I am in love with this German band, Cinema Bizarre!
I just read this, and now I like them even more! Apparently they met at an anime convention, and their names are inspired from anime. Otaku! I knew there was something about them... (laugh)
Love Songs (They Kill Me) is my favourite song. The video is amazing! I wish I could post it here, but YouTube won't let me. (u_u)
Visual Kai. I have a new appreciation for it. It's... Eh... Fascinating.
Heh. I just watched the video for Forever or Never. I like the kana they have in the beginning, on the walls. I'm not sure what the point of it is, but it's so cool! (If you don't know what I'm talking about, go watch it!)
I'd better go now before I put y'all to sleep. But seriously, check out Cinema Bizarre! They're amazing!

EDIT: Okay, here's Forever or Never! This video is freaking amazing!

So, technically, I'm grounded from my computer again. Poor Tamaki's moniter is GONE! ...But no one is saying anything about the fact that I am on my parents computer. So here I am!


Kino no Tabi is simply an amazing anime. It's about this girl who travels around on her talking motorbike. That sounds boring, but it's really wonderful. It's a philosophical anime. It really makes you think... And always leaves you hungry for more. The countries Kino travels to can be horrible, each one has its flaws. But, at the same time... It's just beautiful. I don't think that this is really something I can just explain. It has to be experienced. When I first started watching it, and that phrase that is repeatedly on this show came up for the first time, The world is not beautiful, therefore it is, came up, I understood it, but not totally. Now I do. I've also read the first book (not manga, book). I'm so sad that there are only 13 episodes! I only have three left now. (u_u)

Sorry about the lack of updates. Like always, nothing is going on!

Tomorrow exams start, though. Greeeaaat.

Half days on Thurs-Fri, though! Sweet.

Karaoke Superstars

I was just looking at my copy of Superchick's Karaoke Superstars... It's not the normal release... The cover art is different, it's missing about five tracks, and on the back it says 'Special pre-release'. It's really cool. I bought it last year at Salvation Army. I usually hate stores like that, because they never have anything good (I like buying new things!), but I'm glad that I went there when I did, or else I wouldn't have this! It's my not favourite album (Beauty from Pain 1.1 is), but it's still really cool. And funny. In the credits, it says, "Superchick is: Tricia, Melissa, Matt, Ben, Dave, Andy, Dan, Max, and whoever's in the van when we leave."

In other news, I went shopping with my friends yesterday! Angel and Chelsie. It was fun. We were literally shopping all day! We went to this huge outlet mall an hour and a half away... But it was worth it! I bought some really cute clothes! Their Borders sucks, though. They didn't have much, but it was very cheap. Luckily, they had Naruto... Only three volumes, but two of those three were the ones I needed next! They were 10% off, and my mum payed for one of them, so I bought all three.
I'd better go finish Good Night, Mr. Tom for English. It has to be done by tomorrow.

Self-harm Awareness

I originally posted this in my deviantART journal.

~*~

If you know me well, you should know that I can't stand stereotypes of any form.
The label 'cutter' is one of them, of course.
Please read this article.

Other great sites:
To Write Love on Her Arms
Harmless

I've always felt quite strongly on this subject. In the seventh grade, I saw a number of kids gathered around a computer in the computer lab, watching this 'Tickle Me Emo' video... It's on YouTube. I kind of watched it from where I was, and the whole time, as my classmates were laughing at it, I had this horrible feeling in my stomach.
There are so many misconceptions about self-harm... Last year in my US History class, our teacher told us that Meriwether Lewis (as in 'Lewis and Clark' ) was caught cutting himself. When my class heard this, they made comments like "That man was crazy." Many people also seem to think that self-harm is to get attention... It really is not. It's a way to cope with one's pain.
So many people just sit back and laugh at those who are going through this, when they really should be helping. Horrible, isn't it?

I guess all I can really say from here is to watch the video linked in that article (above).

We need to help raise awareness.

(I recommend listening to Superchic[k]'s song called Hero. It's pretty much about this.)

More Avatars





I like this. Because if you like a girl and there's a chance that she likes you, you should do something before sh e decides that you probably don't like her and loses interest in something that she thinks will never happen.
Right?

See, this is what I mean.

Quick Numbers

-121 million people worldwide suffer from depression. (The World Health Organization)

-18 million of these cases are happening in the United States. (The National Institute of Mental Health)

-Between 20% and 50% of children and teens struggling with depression have a family history of this struggle and the offspring of depressed parents are more than three times as likely to suffer from depression. (U.S. Surgeon General's Survey, 1999)

-Depression often co-occurs with anxiety disorders and substance abuse, with 30 percent of teens with depression also developing a substance abuse problem. (NIMH)

-2/3 of those suffering from depression never seek treatment.

Untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide, and suicide is the third leading cause of death among teenagers. (NIMH)


Scary, isn't it?

Stats



Reading: Good Night, Mr. Tom, Farenheit 451, Naruto vol 4, and Kino no Tabi
Watching: Kino no Tabi
Mood: Bored... Tired... But almost happy. Almost.
Listening to: Bowling Ball by Superchic[k]
Thinking about: Should I go for a walk now or later? Do I cash or deposit that check? Will I see any of my friends today? What was that ambulance doing across the street earlier? What will I buy when I go shopping this weekend? Should I go upstairs and read or stay down here and watch anime? What will I watch when I'm done with Kino no Tabi? Should I call my friend today? I really want to read Bloodletting...

Today was a pretty good day...


I mean, I'm pretty sure that I failed my Bio test... And we're preping for exams... And my lunch sucked... But! I think I did pretty well on my Algebra test. And I made a new friend today! :D For me, that is very rare (I'm kinda schizoid...). But he's a great guy... Name is Donald, but I don't know much about him... Just that he likes anime (Chobits and Naruto! Whoo!) and is a grade above me. Oh, and he used to draw a lot, but doesn't much anymore 'cuz he's in an art class and has to draw everyday. I just started to really talk to him today... We did get a lot of comments on the bus, people kept asking us if we were going out. >_<
Although I am starting to get used to those kinds of comments. I have three guy friends (there was a fourth, but I never talk to him!)... So, yeah. People can be so annoying and judgemental.
I have a ton of yarn wrapped around my left wrist... Kind of like an armband! I dunno why... I thought it might look kinda cool. It's feelin' a little tight, though...

You may notice a picture on the end of the left sidebar... It says 'To Write Love on Her Arms.' It's really neat, click on it to check it out.

David Archuleta's debut album is out today!
I am very happy. I love his voice. ^-^
I'm listening to samples right now. I really like Angels... And Barriers. But... I think they're all love songs. That's pretty disappointing. I guess I was expecting something a bit more out of the ordinary... -goes off to listen to Superchick-
Nothin' else going on. I don't really have any homework today, but I think I'll work ahead a bit.

Hmm... Today was a very interesting day.
I woke up ten minutes before I had to go outside to wait for the bus!!! My mum woke me up... DARN YOU, iPOD ALARM!!! You have failed me once again!
Sometime during second hour, I realized that I forgot my lunch. Greeeaaat. Thankfully, I my stomach hurt, so I wasn't hungry anyways... Well, I was thankful until fourth hour. That's when I started to feel like I was going to throw up! That was very unhappy-making. And it didn't go away until after fifth hour. Which is gym. I sat out.
We're being forced to take a class that teaches us how to study and be successful... And I'm actually learning something! Sweet.
And last but not least, I learned that this semi-cute guy on my bus (cute in a geeky way... But remember, I love geeks! XD) likes me... Actually, my friend told me last week, but she didn't know who it was. She just heard it from his friend. But today I talked to her (his friend) and she told me who he was and his name. So... This is kind of weird. Just because I've never spoken to him before... I doubt he's even ever heard my voice! He doesn't know me at all... I'm sure that if he did get to know the real me, he'd run off screaming (laugh). I joke, but I'm still half serious. There's only one person in the world that knows the real me. And this person hasn't run off screaming yet because he, I think, understands me. At least a little. More than everyone else. So he can relate some. I know that this guy on my bus won't understand me totaly. I know that for a fact. And I don't like him, by the way. A little cute, but I don't even know him. I would be interested in becoming friends with him, though. He seems like a nice guy.

PREPARE. You are about to get to know me better...
THOUGH ICONS!
Mwahahaha!














Section 1- They apply directly to me! :3 (laugh)
Section 2-S They fit my personality.
Section 3- Total randomness! These have nothing to do with me. I just think they're cool.

Yes, geeky guys are the bomb! You can probably tell from that sentence that, yes, I, too am a geek! Kinda crossing over to 'dork'...
I decided to post these because... I really don't know why. Icons rule!
