How is it only Wednesday? Yesterday I thought it was Thursday until I found out about the terrible truth.
Today was good. Average day with ton of fangirling over Alfred Graves from X Company, except I can’t watch the show anymore, cause we only have the first eight episodes and no one has made any personality quizzes. Fangirls need personality quizzes; come on guys! I might just make one on my own. I prefer taking one, though.
1st Period (09:10-10:25)
I was working on ideas for my stained glass design until the fire alarm rang. Luckily my earbuds block most of the sound around me, so the alarm wasn’t ear piercing in the hallway. It was also warm outside, except for a slight breeze that made it a bit cold, but I like and I’m used to the cold. Anyway, my design is a tree split into the four seasons, surrounded by a circle. It’s made out of triangles and circles, except for the trunk.
2nd Period (10:35-11:50)
We continued our essay. Mine looks very good. I finished around 2.5/4 of the way through class, so I decided to continue my English poems. The second one I’m doing seems to be going good so far. I need to put in more figures of speech, though.
Sat with Kohai. I complained about not having any new X Company episodes to watch and how it’s Gotham all over again (not being able to watch any new episodes, cause the ones airing are two seasons forward). We also talked about foods we didn’t like, such as the fat in meat.
3rd Period (12:50-14:05)
There was a substitute and we continued watching the documentary from yesterday about food. At some point, they showed how they killed chickens, which was sad, but not enough for me to gasp and go “awww nooo”, which comes out on its own when someone or something gets hurt, until it did come out when pigs were killed in the biggest slaughter house in the world. They were just standing there until a wall came to push them across the room and the squealing… man… it was heartbreaking. At that moment, I felt like I didn’t want to eat meat anymore (that isn’t true, though), but really it’s just that they aren’t merciful at all. I wished that they were nicer about killing the animals, but there isn’t really one. I just didn’t like the fact that the pigs knew something bad was happening and that they were scared for their life.
I also had that one friend just going like “Yeah and? That’s how chickens are killed.” People were saying “How can you think that?” and I did call her heartless a few times, but jokingly, cause she’s a very nice person and she respects others. She also had a cat, so it isn’t the fact that she’s not an animal person.
4th Period (14:15-15:30)
More refraction. I couldn’t be bothered by it. I used to love science and refractions do interest me—well, at least I want to, but it just isn’t working for me.
You know it’s warm outside when your dog is just sitting in the backyard, soaking in all the sun.
I watched YouTube videos for the most part and then I got to eat my own small pizza from Pizza Pizza (so much Pizza, it sounds weird now) and then watched YouTube videos until I went upstairs for my homework. My brother came to talk to me and we talked about school for more than an hour and looked at our old elementary school website and the school on Google maps; the memories…. I always pass my old elementary school while in my bus and every time I wish I could just walk inside and remember everything.
Later while talking, my dad came along and gave us a KitKat. Then my mom talked about her new job and I left to finish this entry. I picked up my headset and it broke in half. I dropped it earlier, but I put it on my chair and it was fine. I picked it up now and I only picked up one ear. My brother offered his old headset, but the microphone is broken and flopping off to the side, so I have to hold it up when talking. I could just tape it. Hey, new thing to add to my birthday list, at least. I’ll be asking for a much better sounding headset too that doesn’t pick up everything around me.
That’s all for today.
(PS: Sorry if my phrasing is weird. A little tired today.)
