Public School

Hey everyone!

Yesssss so I uh, moved to Maryland about three months ago. My life has gotten kinda hectic since then. Like, so busy I can’t even write for fun like I used to. Or do much of anything not school related. #iguessimapublicschoolernow

Public school can be summed up in one (uppercase) word: CHAOTIC. Students are continually backstabbing and double crossing one another, the bathrooms are almost always filled with smoke and vapor (even the supervised ones), and some kids are so stressed they get mental breakdowns and anxiety attacks. Then they get made fun of because of their mental disability, because they can’t properly process the insanity of high school.

And don’t even get me STARTED on the homework. Homework should be a simple ten minute paper for each class going over concepts learned in the class, not the part of the lesson that the teacher was required to teach but didn’t get to it so now I have to finish it at home.

I stayed up past 11:30pm last night doing homework and studying for quarterly assessments today, and the night before that I was up until 2am. Both yesterday and today I went to the nurse because my head hurt and I couldn’t focus. Today I also had chest cramps and I completely zoned out during algebra without even realizing.

The nurse told me I was “fine”. Um, no?! I’m not fine? I’m getting about three or four hours of sleep at night, I’m stressed, and if I can’t concentrate I can’t pass quarterlies.

The hardest part for me to handle is the school bus. I’m the second to last person to get on and off every day, so the only free seat is in the back, next to someone who hates me, most likely because I’m new to public school and I’m still confused about some things. Also, I don’t laugh at his perverted jokes.

Public school isn’t all bad though. I really love my ASL, music technology, and photography classes. Apparently I have ADHD (or ADD now since ADHD doesn’t exist anymore) and I can’t sit still and do nothing. It drives me crazy. Normally I use my speed cube when that happens, but a couple teachers don’t let me use it. ASL is one of the two classes I have where my ADD doesn’t affect me. It’s also super fun, and I happen to have it with someone who’s probably one of my closest friends at school right now.

I’ve made a few friends at public school who are amazing. The kid in my ASL class is the first person who was actually nice to me when I first came to school and he makes me laugh so much.

Most people at my school are nice or don’t bother me, I think the only real time I gets bullied is on the school bus. It hurts, especially when someone I thought was a friend never stands up for me and just laughs along. I can stand up for myself, but then I always just end up getting in trouble. Typically I turn my music all the way up and try to block everything out.

So…yeah. That’s pretty much my life at the moment. I will continue to try to keep blogging, but it’s definitely not gonna be on a regular basis. I’m really sorry for disappearing for so long. I honestly didn’t mean to. I just haven’t actually had forty-five minutes to put together a blog post and edit it and post and ughhhh I wish I could fix the school system somehow. It’s so messed up.

Thanks for reading (: I’ll hopefully get another post up soon ❤

Life Update #2

Hey guys!

It’s been awhile since I did one of these, so I decided to do another one. And … I’m actually drinking grape juice again too. It’s such a strange coincidence, because I don’t actually drink juice that much XD

Took this like 30 seconds ago XD

My family’s moving date was changed from June 1st to June 20th and then again to sometime later this week, so I’m hoping it doesn’t get moved to later this month. I made the mistake of packing up all my books last month, so now they’re in storage and I’ve been reading library books for the past three weeks.

A few neighbors on our street got together and had a “goodbye cookout” for my family, which was super awesome of them. It was supposed to be a surprise, but young children aren’t the best at keeping secrets… ANYWAYS, one of the families brought this amazing cake and it was so. good. I had a great time, and afterwards I went swimming with a bunch of neighboring kids.

I also went to the last day of my writing program last week, and my friends and I ended up spending most of the time hanging out instead of actually writing because of some emergency the writing teacher had to take care of fifteen minutes into the class. It was kinda sad because I’m not sure when I’ll see those friends again, but we had a great time. And I have some of their numbers so we’ll stay in touch.

ALSO I’ve been more artistically active and I started sketching again, which has been really fun. I’ve been experimenting with different styles and fonts and I can FINALLY draw an uppercase E without erasing it a hundred times because it looked terrible ;D Anyway, here’s a simple drawing I did in about thirty seconds.

Not a great sketch, but I was’t really trying to do anything super fancy.

NF has released a couple of new (also AMAZING) new songs which I’ve been listening to … a lot. Well, I’ve had all of his songs on repeat for awhile, mostly because lately they’ve been really relatable and he’s one of the only rappers who don’t have explicit lyrics.

And one last thing: I got a new personal best with speedsolving, which was really exciting for me. I definitely need a new lubricator for my cube because what I’m using now is something I got from Amazon for $2 and it doesn’t work too well. But even with barely any lubrication I still got a sub-23 (:

I think that’s it, at least for right now. I’m still taking photos and maybe I’ll make a post about that, but right now I’m focusing on packing and making sure my cat survives a 10 road trip.

Thank you for reading!

MEMES

Hey guys!

So, I do have a different post that I’ve been working on for about a month, but that’s because on my computer, WordPress will occasionally not let me edit drafts that I’ve already saved, or it won’t open up the draft at all.

I will figure out how to get that draft back. Somehow.

Today I’m going to be posting nine memes, several of them related to solving cubes or Marvel. I have wayyyyy too many of them on my camera roll and I thought it would be interesting to post some. I’m really sorry if they make no sense to you, but if they do, I hope you like them.

WR stands for World Record, a term used in cubing a LOT

Yo….

Okay, okay, I know. Again.

I’d say that life has been getting in the way of blogging, and that would be very true, correct, and accurate. I’m also trying to spend as much time with friends as I can before I move. However, I assure you all that I’m working on a couple of new posts, both of them very long and possibly a bit overwhelming.

I was nominated for the Liebster Awards (three times, actually) and I’m trying to fit in editing that while finishing up schoolwork before summer arrives. It will be posted, though.

Eventually.

Also, if anyone wants to be nominated for that, even if you’ve already done it, comment and let me know.

And if anyone has any tips on how to survive a long car ride with a large dog and a VERY vocal cat, I’d love to hear them. I need help.

Anyway, thanks for being patient. And *hopefully* I’ll get back to posting more regularly.

The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you Jade for nominating me for this award! I apologize that I couldn’t get to it sooner. I’ve been a little busy … XD

Anyway, here are the rules (:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Link to the blog of the person who nominated you
  • Share 7 facts about yourself

I am almost certain that I won’t be able to tag 15 bloggers, but let’s see how this goes XD

Seven Facts About Myself

#1. I am a freshman in high school.

#2. I really love street art and studying different graffiti artists’ works.

#3. I love listening to all different rap artists even though most modern ones *cough Juice Wrld cough* are pretty explicit and they don’t rap about good topics. Logic and NF are pretty cool though (:

#4. There are only two people that I’m really close friends with irl. I’m not sure how I’d still be sane without them.

#5. I’d rather spend the whole day outside than inside in the summertime.

#6. I’m allergic to a sweetener called high fructose corn syrup which is in most candy. As a result, I don’t eat much candy (except for chocolate, which I can’t live without).

#7. I saw Avengers: Endgame on Sunday and it completely tore me apart and left me in a bottomless pit of despair and it was amazing and I’m going to miss ******** so muchhhhh. Ily3k and everything.

I nominate…

Yeah, so that’s today’s post. I’m debating whether or not to do an Avengers: Endgame review, so let me know if you think I should in the comments!

Thanks for reading,

Life Update … ?

Hey everyone!

Today it occurred to me that I hadn’t been on here in a minute, and I have a very good excuse (well actually I’ve got about thirteen excuses, I’m pretty good at those), but that doesn’t mean that I couldn’t’ve sat down at a computer for fifteen minutes to write and edit a quick post for you guys.

So here I am, at the computer on the first actually warm day of this year, drinking a tall glass of grape juice and wondering why I haven’t done this sooner.

I KNOW I LOOK TERRIBLE but I AM drinking grape juice (: I took this selfie literally thirty seconds ago.

Anyway, here’s what’s happened in my life since I last posted.

My parents finally set a moving date. I know some of my followers are my friends and they know what’s been going on in my life for the past couple of months, but for those of you who don’t know, my family is moving about ten hours away from where we currently live to be closer to family. I’m kind of scared and also really sad because I’ve lived in *insert my town and state* for my whole life and everything I know is here. But I guess moving will be something new and exciting. We’re moving on June 1st, less than two months away. So … lots of packing!

I saw one of my oldest friends for the first time in over a year on Thursday. Some of you guys might know her as Esmeralda from Writings from a Farm Girl. It was really awesome to see her and talk to her in real life because we’ve been emailing for so long.

*pretend that I’ve inserted a picture of us together*

I also got to see another one of my friends who I haven’t really talked to since before school started, and we’re gonna hang out more, especially since spring break is HERE!! I’m so ready for it. Apparently he’s moving too, the day before I am. And we also just found out that we’d been working for the same woman for months and we didn’t know, so that was kind of hilarious.

*pretend that I’ve inserted a nonexistent picture of us*

Camp NaNoWriMo (Camp National Novel Writing Month) is an “extension” (sorry if that’s the wrong word for it, I’m kinda exhausted and I can’t think straight) to the November NaNoWriMo, an online event where writers try to write a 50,000+ word novel in the month of November. There’s a camp for April, and also one in July. So far it has been really fun this year, and I’m writing a novel which is a little different from my usual fantasy stories. This month I decided to try writing realistic fiction, and I actually kind of like it!

Yeah, that’s my Camper page (;

Aaaaaaaand …. I GOT A DOG!!!!

Well, we adopted her from the woman who lives across the street from us and we’ve known this dog for seven years, but still SHE IS SO PRECIOUS. I guess thirteen years of almost nonstop begging my parents for a dog finally paid off XD Her name is Casey and she’s watching me write this.

Look at that face, isn’t she adorable?!

And I think that’s it! That’s what’s been keeping me from writing a blog post. Again, sorry about that.

Anyway, let me know what you thought! And if you have any other post suggestions, I’d love to hear them! Also, if you have a NaNoWriMo account, let me know and I’ll add you as a buddy (;

Thanks for reading (:
