Have To Admit... I'm Just Venting...

Well, I hope you people find it hard to believe, but I've just experienced one of those times when my world has come crashing down around my ankles. The day didn't start well in the first place. I was tense and had underslept to try and finish some work for school, which was extra important because this is the last day of school (11th grade) for me. So anyway, I got it done, but still showed up at class five minutes late. Big deal, we're known for lateness. History today consisted of nothing but an in-class essay. Believe it or not, I did not discover until i was in class that I had showed up without paper to write the essay on! So I had to call my mom, and then sit and 'twiddle my thumbs' until mom showed up with a stack of papers, after which time I got to work. half an hour later, i had completed five not-so-good pages on the history of U.S. foreign policy. Fast forward to this afternoon, on the way to an independent literature class, my mom and I simultaneously discover, that though I passed History and English, I have still failed 11th grade due to a lack of completion in courses like P.E. , Personal development, and Spanish, which are generally so simple that one has plenty of time to pass them... So... I'm doomed to five years of school... gotcha... I was already going to be kept in school that long...

And then later this evening, after trying to sleep off the depression the rest of the day had pushed me into, i tried to work things out by indulging in my other, sporadic, hobby, archery. Wouldn't you know it, i did not fail to lose all my arrows in the weeds in the span of five tries. bad day, or what? Now I'm gonna be mad all week...

Cantrell and the phantom suddenly run across the room, shouting madly. The questioner keels over in shock, David appears to call King Valun away, and I leave the room as if nothing has happened.
*If possible, please do not get rid of either of your fictional characters mid-tag. But if you do find that they are too narrow-minded, feel free to use the arch-nemesis escape route.
** Also, please try to avoid using any form of 'stupid questions' at the end. My character got tired of answering.

Mobile Link

As you will see when you read this, I was able, with the help of a tutorial posted by my newest follower, to do something I had been wanting to do for some time now. That is, put up some sort of link to my bog which is easily visible and easily spread around the blogosphere. (I know what you're thinking, but I'm really insecure about this whole blogging thing. It worries me since I've accumulated only four followers in 15 months of blogging... :D I'm boring! lol. So thanks to Imogen for solving that problem, and will someone please take it so I can test it from your blog? Open the Window! In other news, I need to get back to my homework and hang out with my aunt and uncle who are leaving tomorrow from their visit. Confirmation on Friday! If I can get pics, I will post them...

Milestone

Yesterday, my two younger brothers finally received their First Communion. Getting to Church on time was hectic, as no one ever knows where anything is in our house, but once we arrived, it went off mostly without a hitch (the hitches could be attributed to forgetfulness). And then right after Mass, both sets of Godparents and their kids, as had been prearranged, showed up for a huge (there was so much food we didn't eat dinner and barely ate breakfast this morning) brunch cooked, believe it or not, by my dad. Everything was good and we all had fun. I am relieved that they are finally in the 'in-crowd'. As for myself, I'm getting Confirmed in less than two weeks! Awesomeness!
