First off, dear readers, I wanted to apologize for not updating as often as anyone would like. I also apologize for the fact that when I do update, it's never the best or most interesting. Ever. But I have a fun story for you guys right now!!
You guys know Sue Heck from the ABC show "The Middle," right? If not, I can just explain that the running joke about Sue is that nobody seems to remember her. She was in the yearbook under a different name- and it was her senior year!
I'm pretty much the real-life Sue Heck right now, just the opposite...
Today, we got our yearbooks. I was in a rush to get to the school library so that I could get my yearbook before anyone else crowded into the library. I didn't make it before anyone else did, but I made it out pretty quickly. I made it into the car and searched inside the index in the back of the yearbook for my name and anything similar to my name. There was one name similar to mine- in fact, the last name was only one letter off!
So I searched for this person with a similar name inside the yearbook. I checked each page with my name first and found that not every picture I was in was mentioned inside the yearbook. Why?
I checked for the similar name and saw that she wasn't on any of the pages that it mentioned she was on, but I was there.
I went back to the page where the regular, "required" picture was and found that I was on both pages, the odd and the even. Why was this, you ask?
Well, through some mix-up or other, I was both me and the girl with the similar name!
I hope that this story brought a smile to somebody's face with this story.
(Also, there's a cool picture on the chess club page and one of my best friends playing chess. Sure, he looks a little grumpy, but it looks like he was intensely focused, and I'm reaching for a piece and I'm laughing... it's awesome!)
To Whom It May Concern-
Please do read this all the way through.
This is a very important subject.
Look, guys, I have one word for you: restrooms.
Why am I talking about restrooms on my blog?
Let me tell you why.
Here is a video of some [very awesome] people when they don't have access to a toilet that they can poop in. It's irrelevant to Primpers vs. Poopers, but it goes to show that people NEED TO POOP! And primping in front of the mirror or using the stall to text or do whatever the heck is almost the same as their problem in this video. (Yes, this video is rather ludicrous, but just watch.)

Here is part two out of who knows how many parts in the "Random Thoughts" series. In yesterday's post, I mainly used the source of crazythoughts.com though I did use some from my youth group and one or two from my own whack-a-doodle mind... Again, feel free to comment below with additional random questions, or your answers (be sure to include the number of whichever question or questions you're answering, as well as whether or not you would like me to post that answer later.) as well as anything else.
Without further ado, here we go on part two!
Last week at youth group, the youth pastor started a new activity of sorts. This activity was called "Random Thoughts," and it consists of just random questions that, in my opinion, NEED TO BE ANSWERED!!!! Here is a selection of "a few" of these that I liked the most. (Note: some are from the youth group session, others are from Twitter- mainly using Shower Thoughts, a.k.a @TheWeirdWorld- and my own messed-up, crazy-as-heck brain, and STILL OTHERS were found through Google searching..) This is part one of who knows how many parts I'll have, but still... Feel free to comment with your thoughts or questions! (Please, though, tell me which question(s) you're going to answer, and if I can or can't use your answer(s) when I post this on Wattpad later.
I had to entitle this post like that for my brother, who always says "idea pop" if he has an idea. But this time, it's me having an idea.
I don't know who else has this problem, but I have a major issue with forgetting to turn off my music player before I fall asleep. Naturally, I can't tell which moment I will fall asleep in, so either I'm still awake without my music playing or asleep with it still on. This turns out to be problematic most mornings when it comes to waking up without any battery left since that means that I can't wake up listening to an upbeat song.
So, my major idea for the moment is a music player with sensors in it. Sensors that can tell when you're starting to fall asleep. It will quiet, gradually turning off, from the moment you start drifting off to the moment that you end R.E.M. sleep. It will turn all the way off after the exact moment that R.E.M. stops, turning on- quietly at first, building up to higher noise- when and if it senses that you're waking up for a midnight snack or for the morning.
Anyone like or dislike this idea? Or is anyone an inventor that could make this happen? (Just kidding there. I mean, unless you really want to...) I'd like to know what you guys think in the comments below. Thanks!
Today kinda sorta really sucked- a new favorite thing to say- in so many ways, and I just need to rant.
So, what went "wrong" today?
I know that this is all because of The Lost Girl of Astor Street, but I wanted to thank everyone for 53 Unique Views this week! (Seriously, when I checked yesterday, there were only two.)
I wanted to thank everyone so so so much for this!
I promise that I'll get posting more soon, so stay with me... things might get interesting. :)
Again, thank you, everyone!
In 'The Lost Girl of Astor Street' by Stephanie Morrill, we meet Piper Sail, a young woman growing up in Chicago during the early 1920's.
What happens, though, when her best friend, Lydia, goes missing?
Piper is determined to find out what happened to her friend, even if it means putting herself in danger and learning more things about the world than she would've appreciated.
With twists and turns abound, this book is enough to satisfy those who want a historical fiction, a mystery, or a coming-of-age tale.
This is a must-read!

I'm in AP European History, right?
And I adore Hamilton.
We're doing the French Revolution- matching quiz on the people today (I got a nineteen out of twenty-one! Yay!) and one of them was Lafayette.
Before a friend and I could look at each other and start lip-syncing Guns and Ships as we're used to doing for other songs and other moments, my teacher literally goes, "the answer is D, also known as LAFAYETTE!"
Mind you, he tried imitating the ensemble. Note the word 'tried.' Everyone thought it was funny though they didn't get the reference, but I thought it was freaking hilarious.
Thought you guys would like to know this.
