Yes, I know. I really am abusing this blog. I promise the next post will be less self-indulgent.
Behold, a censored excerpt from the "Things We Hate" list, as created by Kate, Katie, and Chloe during a rather boring English period. For the sake of being politically correct, the title has been changed to the "Things That Annoy Us" list.
-People who chew really loudly.
-The word "hella."
-When skinny girls complain about being fat.
-Theory of Knowledge (if you are or ever were an IB student, you know what we mean).
-Doing the dishes.
-Spending all your money on gas/food, then realizing it was all you had.
-Soccer tan lines (trust me, they can get pretty ugly).
-When your hair won't fall the right way no matter what you do.
-ANY summer homework.
-Homework in general.
-Snow in May (curse you, SLC).
-Being expected to fill highschool stereotypes.
-Glen Beck (hahahahaha).
-The fact that the dinosaurs died out, because let's face it, the dinosaurs were awesome.
-The word "shoot".
-People who use the words "lol" or "omg" as part of their regular vocabulary.
Now, to counteract all that negative energy, here's a list of things that are completely and irrevocably awesome:
-Comfort food of all kinds.
-Joss Whedon/Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
-Cheesecake from the cheesecake factory (1500 calories per slice=heaven).
-Night swimming in the summer.
-Dress shopping, especially when your parents pay.
-Seeing how many saltine crackers you can eat in under a minute.
-Eating the frosting off cupcakes.
-Drawing pictures on our IB Math Studies tests because we didn't know the answers.
-Doing interpretive dance as a way to answer a math problem (didn't work, by the way).
-Making fun of Mr. Marsden.
-Making fun of Ms. King.
-Making fun of Mr. Case.
-Not making fun of Ms. Thompson, because she's pregnant so we feel bad.
-Holding hands in Spanish class.
Yup. That pretty much sums it up. I feel like I should at least mention writing (after all, that's what this blog is all about) but nothing much has happened since I last posted. We leave for New York in eight days, and I'm so excited to attend the workshops at Scholastic! Chapter 33 is now complete. Just a few more to go, and then I get to enter the wonderful world of revisions. Wish me luck!
