Yet another one of my "lovely" rambles....

Sponsored by Puppy Sized Elephants

Youtube anyone? *points at the previous statement* If you know, you know. ;)

Well that was cryptic, eh
, eh?

Yeeeeaaaah.

Have you ever had a bowl of chips on one side and a drink of something on the other and you forget what side the chips are on so you stick your hand into the cup instead of the bowl? <-----run-on sentence win.

It's not fun...not that I'm speaking from experience or anything. *darts eyes*

Moving along, moving along.

Recently in AP class we had to act out tone words--I got to act out the tone word "burlesque" (among others) along with another person. Our lines we had to read?

I have something to tell you.
What is it?
I'm having a baby!
No.


Anyone see something incredibly ironic about that? I mean who would expect, out of all the other words and all the other dialogues we get that one. I found that very funny, so, me being the person that I am, I felt I needed to share the lols. No one knew what burlesque was. -.- So then I had to explain it to them. =_= Yeah, major awkwardness with some people. 

That day was fun. Another group got the word: colloquial. For those of you dear readers who don't know what  that means here's a definition:

"of or relating to slang or regional dialect, used in familiar everyday conversation"

So  when you hear that, what do you think? You think maybe accents, some slang phrases etcetera. Instead we got dancing---strange dancing---it looked like he was trying to be a chicken. Plus he kept trying to get increasingly closer to Paige. It was hilarious, pretty much all of theirs were. Another time he was trying to be "compassionate" and he ended up kind of semi-stalking her around the room, then he started rubbing her back when he was supposed to be "concerned". I know it sounds creepy right now but it wasn't, probably because it was Ron doing it! For some reason he's just really funny. I ended up laughing to tears during their presentation. It was great.

Well that's all I have energy to do right now. :( I have so many stories. Woe is me! Whyyyyyyy!!!

*whispers* Instantchaos is such a drama queen...gawwwd



Just for the laughs, 'n' stuff. So how goes it eljay? I've been absolutely horrid, I know. I'll let you decide a punishment--nothing inappropriate. *glares*

Ooh, and I'm just gonna show off some art thingys I'm real proud of *thrusts pictures toward you* EEEHHH, lookie!

</div>Under the cut, obviously...Collapse )

Just a couple of mah faves. *brushes shoulder off*

       About my last entry...it was written after being awake for quite a bit of time, so I apologize if it makes no sense whatsoever. That day I had to get up at 4:30 AM to travel to State Solo and Ensemble. So after about two hours on the bus, we finally get to the school where it's hosted. The  problem? That school is very, VERY confusing. Everything looks the same! And the halls are basically like a big box, you can just keep going in circles over and over. On each wall/corner they have a clock, the same color, and they have benches so you can never quite tell which hall you're in. They thought ahead about that and got maps and while they weren't the best, they worked. So there I was, alone, in the bottom level of the school (apparently no one else was on that level that was from my school at least and because we were there so early very few people were there practicing) looking for my room: W1. I go around about five hundred times until I figure out that my room was W11. They had put the wrong number on the room!! It's like, that's just freagin' great. So, I had about two minutes to warm up- I did a couple of scales and then I had to go in. I play my solo, I could not focus at ALL. All I could think was: "I'm so thirsty, why the hell did I pick a six page song?! What is wrong with me? Soo, thirsty. I wonder if they have a drinking fountain." xD I still got a first division though!!!! Apparently I did really good. YAY! So glad that's over with.

What?Collapse )

EARTH HOUR!!!!

I've been up since 4:30 AM and I'm crazy tired right now..but not tired enough to say this.
*Ahem*
Earth Hour: 8:30-9:30 Local time DO IT! *puppy dog face* PLEEAAASE!
Basically you just turn off your lights and maybe unplug your TV or computer or basically anything that has a clock and it plugged in-- everything else will not use electricity when off. It's one hour! Please do it, please, please, please. :D

That is all.

The Internet is baaackkk...

I never quite realized how addicted I was to livejournal until it disappeared. Every day I really, really wanted to check to see what people had written, but alas no internet and it's blocked at school. *dramatic pose*

I know, the horrors, the horrors.

Ooh, guess who came back today? No, can't guess?
Read more...Collapse )
Random question: What are you reading right now? And does anyone have some music reccomendations?
P.S. Sorry I haven't been commenting too much lately, I'll try to pick up on that. *ashamed face*

Have you ever met a celebrity in real life? Who was it and how did your paths cross?
Apparently, when I was little, I met Shirley Chisholm. *_* I don't remember at all. :( What the heck man, how can I meet someone so majorly awesome and not even remember! Darn you, little four year old memory, darn you! *shakes fist*
In case you were wondering, that quote was said by the  passionate Henry David Thoreau, whom I admire greatly.

Another piece of my own, I'd like to think I'm getting better with practice.

 
(I reject your reality and substitute it for my own- Adam Savage)

    The interesting thing about the imagination is that while I  never know where it will take me, or how far, I always go without question. It doesn't matter where I am, anything seems better than reality. My mind is an endless place for possibility, for adventure, for anything. I can choose at any day and any time who I want to be. It's funny how people throw that statement around. I like to think that it's a lot harder to change oneself than to simply say "I'm different now". This is partly true, the first step has been taken and simply accepting it does, in a way, make you different. I guess, what I'm trying to say is that it's easy to change, it's hard to stay changed.

(If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, I know I can acheive it."- Jesse Jackson)


 
    I mean everyone has urges, quirks, little things that could be genetically controlled, habits etc. How do we truly change those? We don't, we accept them or we force them out. Is that really the best thing to do? Force your body to do something it shouldn't? Why so artificial? We have this perfect image in our head, everything has to have some sort of aesthetic value.

(You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"- George Bernard Shaw)


    And now it's been said repeatedly that the world is becoming global. Global what exactly? It seems to me that it's becoming globally commercialized. It's getting harder to find little things to treasure, but it's also getting easier. (If that makes sense) I can't even fully explain this as it's so abstract in my mind I'm not even sure I fully understand it.

(Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.- Carl Sagan)

     Everyone always tells me: "You have a unique perspective, a unique way of thinking of things".  Well, I think this might have boosted my "unique" ego.( I get it, everyone is unique- I guess the better way to describe me would be eccentric or bizarre or strange) The thing is though, I only show parts of me to different people. They may think they completely understand me, think me predictable but then I surprise them...I guess that makes me a bit of a hobbit. I have trouble seeing things that people find easy to perceive but all the ones they can't seem to grasp is very clear in my mind. I also get this a lot: "You always see things that most people don't" *shrugs*
I wouldn't know since I only can really, truly see things from my perspective. I can put myself in someone else's shoes for a while but that doesn't mean I'm them. Sure, I can act like it, but that doesn't really change a thing. My understanding of the world will never be complete. Life is a little bit similar to a cup with holes in the bottom in this way. You keep pouring in new knowledge in an effort to gain all their is to know, to quench your thirst, but it's never completely quenched. My family seems to think it's because of my need to imagine things.I'm a dreamer, a lavender, imagination is the air I breathe- without it I would be lifeless; a ragdoll with button eyes. I don't mean to sound as if I'm an tragic genius (or that my "voice from the wall" is) set out against the world or some master creator, I'm not. I'm just me, nothing more, nothing less.

( Imagination is the living power and prime agent of all human perception.-Samuel Taylor Coleridge)
 
   I just want to spend my life learning, exploring, presenting.I don't want to be limited to one area or one profession. I want variety, I want that feeling of awe you find when you learn something completely new and it excites you. I want this to be a daily experience. Is that really so hard? I guess so. I want to expand, to explode, to dazzle.

(Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what make you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive- Howard Thurman)
 
   
I just want the world in my mind out here
 



 
So Stats test today. I think it went pretty well...then the last problem. Ya know when you're looking at illusions or anything that involves estimation and your mind keeps going back and forth between what it could be.
Yeah, well that's kind of what happened.
We had to match up box plots to histograms ( there was no numerical values there so it was strictly picture). Two of them were pretty symmetric...
Yeah so that means the box plots were almost the same. So, there I am sitting there agonizing over the box plots.

*hyperventilates*
Now-now this one looks the same. Is this one slightly skewed or is that one...wait on this one the whiskers are skewed on that one the actual box is. *wrings hands*
I'm never gonna get this. *wild eyes
*

Heh...this is how I am with tests and stuff. I feel like I have to do perfect.
I messed up the modified boxplot though, only a little. I'll probably get most of the credit for that.

And I still have my AP test, crap. : /

Alright, Collapse )

Other than that I was having a conversation withenteringxghost  about dorky homemade music videos you see on youtube. You know the one's that  have someone doing something extremely embarrasing (like popping in and out of trash cans) in a public place?
All I can think when I see those is What would happen is someone you like (say a crush or something) found you doing that? Would you hide in the trashcan? Would you run away?Here's how I imagined it?

(Insert name here) sees you popping in a trash can and give you a strange look.
You panic and hide in the trash can.
(Insert name here) walks up to you. "What the hell are you doing?"

You: Err... *awkward sheepish face* In a meek voice you mumble ashamedly: "Justthisthingforyoutube"

(Insert name here) Okaaaay then..I'm just gonna go now. *puts lid back on and walks away*

Well it was funny in my head...

Man, that would be weird though wouldn't it?

Alright that's it for now, toodles.
 


So what do I do when I get bored??


Apparently, boredom/stress  does good things for me.
Does anyone else polyvore?

Lately, I've been majorly stressed from testing coming up- I have AP finals (which I can't really study for because they are the actual "test" ones. Oh, by the way, we've only done about three of those, so I'm freaking out just a liiiitle. *breaks out paper bag), U.S. History (I took independent study sooo....*gulp*), a Statistics test, and on that day I also have a band competition. Then next week I have ACT and MME and Workeys- they put them in three days (one full day two half days) and after we take the test we still have to go back to class. WTH?! All of the other schools in our district don't do that- we're going to be so exhausted...*grumbles* . And what the heck were the legislators thinking when they put two important tests one after the other?! Oh, right we'll be in "testing mode"- this coming from the people who haven't take it in nearly twenty years.

Gah, sorry guys I'm just a little frazzled. (That's an interesting word...frazzled. The zzz is nice in the middle...)

So, what do I do when I'm stressed- listen to George Carlin and Bill Maher and find new music and learn new things. For example: Did you know that in ancient Rome (I believe it was..) they thought a "genius" was an entity outside of the human. It was similar to a muse. Wouldn't that be interesting...

So, if you were a writer or something and your work was amazing- don't let it go to your head...you had a great genius. If it was a total flop...well not totally your fault- I mean who can control what sort of voice you hear from the wall anyways? *shrugs*

How's it going with you guys?

Lots of videos in this one kids...

Dude, click the link and it like leads you to the post duh.Collapse )
Sooo..how's it goin' with you guys? Ooh, ooh, guys tell me one thing you consider to be absolutely awesometastic about yourself .[[*snorts* Wait to be vague Leah...Question Fail. FAIL STAMP]
(Ya know, you click comment/reply then you type in stuff and click submit...that's what I'm talking about. It's okay....I can wait. *examines nails*)
