I’m reading The Kite Runner and Frankenstein, for AP English, at the same time. Today I focused on The Kite Runner and got really pissed off at the main character, Amir. Usually, I like the main characters in a book, but I don’t know I like this Amir less and less. I’m not going to give any spoilers but if someone was doing that to my best friend I wouldn’t just watch! I’m trying really hard to understand this guy’s logic but uhhh. I’m probably a bit biased in all this since I tend to stick up for the underdog, victim etc. I don’t know maybe he’s a victim too but the whole situation’s really sad. It was one of those things where I wanted to shake him and tell him what the hell are you doing, come on?! Anyways, I’m finishing my final AP Government cases today! I think I’ll actually enjoy AP Government this coming school year…and AP English. I’m still trying to decide whether I should take AP Art History or AP Calculus BC? I really want to take AP Art but I don’t want to burn myself out with three time-consuming AP’s. I’ll make my final decision when I talk to my counselor before classes start.
I wonder why for some people a music preference translates to a lifestyle or fashion choice.
eg. Sometimes, if someone likes rap music they go and dress like a rapper; if they like indie music, they become an “indie kid;” If someone likes punk music, sex, drugs, and rock and roll becomes their motto, and so on.
If I modeled myself after the music I listened to I’d be a complete mess lol.
I don’t know. I was just wondering why some people make it a point to scream out their preferences.
I don’t think self-identity is solely determined by one’s likings.
I went to the dentist with my family today. We don’t go out as a family as much anymore so it’s a rare treat. What I love about the dentist is that we’re in and out in a few minutes and we get our teeth cleaned by a professional. lol. We then ate at Burger King and headed home, but I went to the swapmeet with my mom to get some earrings. I was getting tired of the ones I had so I got two packets with different colored ones; they’re really nice and versatile lol. And now I’m back home doing my AP government homework while on Tumblr and while I’m watching Skins, or waiting for the videos to load is more like it. I think I can easily do three court cases multi-tasking.
Quite upset actually. Just re-learning one of those repetitive lessons of not taking things for granted. This really sucks.
I hate choking on gum because in that split second I have to choose between choking to death or swallowing a gum, so I choose life; I’m exaggerating, but that’s essentially what it is :] When I swallow my gum I can’t help but feel like a little kid again. I remember my mom saying “don’t swallow your gum blah blah blah.” I don’t know. It’s as if I expect my body to NOT be able to swallow gum because it should “know better.” lol It doesn’t happen often, but when it does I can’t help but think that, especially now that I’m chewing gum. And I’m aware that this is a really random post but I just needed a break from government homework.
