My Life as a 7th Grade Honor Student:Entry 3: Crushing and Confused

I am staring off into space in class. The teachers lecture on how to solve two-step equations wasn’t sinking in so I decided to give up. But then I think better of it so I snap back into reality and realize I am staring at a really cute boy. I’ll call him Jake for safety reasons. My mind wanders back to a couple of days ago, when I was playing with his hair. I don’t really remember why, though. Now I’ve been thinking about him ALL THE TIME. I think about how cute, sweet, funny, smart and sporty he is. I think about looking into his beautiful light brown eyes and playing with his soft, black mess of hair. At this point I am either going psycho or I have my first serious crush. Sometimes Jake sneaks into my dreams and makes me smile when I wake up. I even want to ask him on a study date so he can help me with my homework after school or seeing if he will go to the school dance. But I am seriously confused. What if he doesn’t like me? What if he really likes me but won’t admit it? What if we are only friends? I mean, I guess being only friends won’t be that bad since he could become my best guy friend which would be just as awesome. Anyway, most relationships in middle school don’t last unless people are really in love.

How to Deal With Annoying Teachers

Yeah, we all have ’em. But how do we deal with them? I just think about  how when I finish with school I will never have to do this ever again unless it is voluntarily. (They wish). Maybe they are annoying since they have problems and want to take it out on us. I wish they would just take a sick day instead, though. Don’t try to say anything to them about it though or you may be just asking for a detention. Please comment on how you deal with them. This could be the first step to a slightly better day at school.

My Life as a 7th Grade Honor Student: Entry 2: Easy as Pi

I groan as I sit at my desk. I was in 7th period Pre Algebra which had only 11 students and 1 frickin annoying and weird teacher. She said she lived on a mini farm with a donkey, many cats and many dogs but no children even though she looks 50 years old. She even has a clock that meows every hour on the hour. Talk about creepy. She was yelling at me for not correcting my homework. To myself I was thinking, Isn’t that suppose to be your job? That is like half of what you are getting paid for. She put -10 points on my homework for it not being self-corrected. *itch I thought to myself. What another wonderful day as me. (Sarcasm) *sigh* This is obviously not easy for me to remember. It is pretty much as easy as pi. (Which, by the way isn’t easy at all).

My Life as a 7th Grade Honor Student: Entry 1

I am not your average honor student. I am nowhere near perfect grades, perfect friends and a perfect school record. But I am an honors student nonetheless. Today I was in language arts, sitting semi-quietly at my desk. There were one of those college interns that observe classes staring at us and the teacher sent her out so she could take a break and get some coffee. Once she walked out a burst of noise exploded in the room. All the things we wanted to say poured out of us in relief. The second the teacher comes back in it goes so silent I would be able to hear a conversation from across the school. Soon, the teacher needs to leave again and the conversations continue, on and off for 45 min. Eventually I say, “We are like the best frickin’ actors in all the school!” I realize its sounds stupid once it comes out of my mouth, but by then everyone is clapping in cheering because it was the truth. Though the teacher had a really puzzled look on her face when she saw us grinning ear to ear when we had just been assigned a lot of homework. Oh well. Welcome to my world.

Shave or Not to Shave…

Hi! Its me again. :p Of course its me! Well here is one of the girl problems of today. To shave or not to shave. I will tell you my opinion of it and what to do about it.

You can shave your face, armpits, arms, legs and if you wanted, everywhere else but it isn’t always needed. Blondes don’t really need to shave unless they are REALLY hairy or REALLY tan. It is very unnoticeable and pale. If you don’t want to look like a hairy ape if you have a lot of dark hairs and want to look clean and mature ask your mom if you can shave. If she says yes, she will probably show you how to use it, clean the blades and other stuff. If she says no ask her if you can use depilatory cream which is stuff like Nair. It is gentle and doesn’t hurt at all if you don’t have sensitive skin. It totally removes hair by using chemicals to break down the hair. It sounds dangerous and painful but it isn’t. If she says no AGAIN (like my mom) wait a while, like 2 weeks or till your birthday when she might feel more like doing it if she’s thought about it. Good luck with convincing your mom. Wish me luck too! And if you shave, make sure not to cut yourself or you’ll have one nasty scratch. Also once you start shaving it will look like it grows in thicker since you cut it off where the hair was thick. Another option is waxing. It last longer, but I don’t think we should do that since 1) it hurts 2)it hurts 3) IT HURTS! Also people will notice if you have bright red marks on you and will make fun of you for waxing. People are that cruel. In the end it is your choice.

Stupid Siblings… Whatcha gonna do?

Don’t you feel like your little brother or your bitchy older sister gets in your way or just is plain stupid? Me, too. Just today, my 6 year old brother “took a walk” around the block at like 7:30pm in the semi darkness and I had to walk all the way to another street to try to find him at his friends house. When I didn’t see him I went back home and my mom was waiting in the car, ready to drive around the block to look for the idiot causing this havoc for the 2nd time! By the time we talked to his friends dad and came back home he was banging on the back door and he got yelled at by my mom even though if it was me she would of slapped me and put me to timeout for 2 hours and not be able to use the computer for a week… even though if I was him I’d be 6, not 11. *sigh* Well here are some tips on avoiding brawls with your sibs.

  • Don’t yell at your siblings. Your parents will blame you for whatever happens
  • Do your chores and gently remind your siblings to do their share and if they don’t, leave it alone. They will be the ones to get in trouble
  • Try to avoid them by chilling in your room or going to your friends house
  • If you have desserts, candy or fast food, expect to have to share with your siblings. Save a really small portion for them. They can’t say you didn’t give them anything.
  • Don’t laugh at them or they’ll just tell on you. Instead, put on a goofy grin and when your sibling runs to tell on you they will say “-insert name here- keeps smiling at me!” Trust me I do it all the time. 😀

I am warning you now though, I only have 2 little brothers, no younger or older sisters or older brothers. These work better on little kids older than 4. Well, I have now done my part to make the world a better place.

Percy Jackson and The Olympians

I saw the movie yesterday on cartoon network and I was really disappointed. Fans of the book would be disappointed too. First of all, Percy, Annabeth and Grover were like 12 in the book but are like 16 in the movie. Annabeth isn’t even blonde in the movie even though its not that hard to dye your hair blonde and it doesn’t show that she likes Luke or likes architectural stuff like in the book. In the movie Grover is all brave but in the book he is easily made fun of, nervous all the time and is clumsy. Percy is all brave and crap but in the book he is unsure, stupid and needs lots of help from his friends. I could go on and on and on about all the things wrong with the movie but you can just comment to tell me what you thought of it and I will put all the comments in a later post. Time to rant!

Some pointers are to never bring your siblings with you shopping or at least try, try to make sure your friends are with you to see if it looks good on you, bring at least 50 dollars when shopping for clothes and never act stupid by yelling, screaming, crying or running around like a kid. Happy shopping!

 

Parent Problems

Every one has fights with their parents. Get used to it. It is always going to happen but you can prevent it from getting chaotic or too serious. First, you should ALWAYS tell the truth. And don’t wait one year to say it either. Say it as soon as you possibly can so they will be less mad and will get over it faster and easier. Don’t ever lie or leave out details. You’ll just run into problems doing that. Remember if you have a problem with one parent, that parent will tell the other one and you’ll be in trouble with both. (And it really sucks if your in trouble with your dad if your not Daddy’s Little Girl).

Do you feel like your parents never believe and don’t give you enough attention. I’ve certainly been there and I am still doing that. I am the oldest of 2 little brothers and its a pain in the neck. Lets say, I am in the kitchen sitting down at the table and my 6 year old brother trips in a spill he made. My parents blame me for not cleaning the mess up and helping my brother up. See how unfair it is!? Here’s another example. I am doing the dishes and my 10 year brother being lazy watching tv. I have to empty the dish washer, stack them in the cupboard, empty out the sink, clean the dishes than put them in the dish washer like 3 times a day and he does nothing even though he is only 1 and a 1/2 years younger than me. These are things you need to gently explain to your parents that it is not fair to you to give you all the work or be quick to blame you for something. If they treat you like a baby explain to them that you help around the house and get good grades which requires responsibility which you obviously have. Try not to give them attitude or they will just get mad. Trust me I’ve done that before. So, good luck with any of your probs!
