Day 60 – “We are the heroes of our time”

Monday, April 25th 2016

Why is it that even if I got more hours of sleep, I’m still just as tired, if not, more tired?

I forgot yesterday to say that apparently Robin Taylor who plays Oswald Cobblepot (Penguin) in Gotham is gonna be at the Comic Con in Montreal, as well as Alfonso Ribeiro (which my mom really wants to see) and a few other Star Wars/Star Trek actors my dad wants to see. I’m only interested in Robin Taylor really. Except, it’s the week before we are going to New York, so we don’t know if we can go. I would go to the Comic Con nearby for my birthday, but there aren’t really any actors I’m currently interested in seeing. Perhaps River from Doctor Who as well as Rory and Amy, but I’m not as big of a fan of them anymore. Still be cool to see them, I guess.

Today was alright, I’d say. Somehow different mentally, if that makes sense. My mind was racing all over the place throughout the day.

Day 1

1st Period (09:10-10:25)
We had a substitute—or, was supposed to. The substitute didn’t show up for the third time. The other math teacher had to survey both classes until one teacher could join us and 3/4 through, the real substitute came along, or I think he was? I don’t know.
   We were given notes, but things we didn’t know anything about, so Kohai and I just hanged out and talked. I showed her a new song I’m obsessed with that reminds me of X Company every time I listen to it. It’s called Heroes by Måns Zelmerlöw. It sounds country and it might be, but I promise you the refrain is amazing.

2nd Period (10:35-11:50)
Visual Arts
I continued my stained glass painting and it doesn’t look amazing, but not bad. I also took a picture of my emblem so I can do my analysis.

Lunch (11:50-12:50)
I sat with Kohai and we talked about some things. She read my Wartime Journal which is a collection of my poems for English class designed as a soldier’s journal. I then studied a bit of science and at some point I was asked if I’m Catholic. I answered Christian and they asked for the difference. Well, there’s a lot. I tried to explain the best way I can by saying Catholics follow more traditions, have a priest and we have a pastor and concentrate more on understanding and learning the verses in the bible. It was kind of all over the place, though. I’d be talking for hours.

3rd Period (12:50-14:05)
I read my notes for five minutes before doing the quiz. Mind you, I never properly learned refractions, because I wasn’t really listening… I love science, but I completely lost my energy during it. Luckily, I seem to be learning properly with lenses.
   Anyway, the quiz went surprisingly amazingly (either got very lucky with the questions or choosing exactly the right notes to write down). I was the first one done and I darted through all the questions without problem, except for one I wasn’t entirely sure, but put down my answer confidentially anyway. Afterwards, I was just thinking of photographic memory (because of X Company, still obsessed I know) and wondered if I have it, but eidetic memory instead, which allows to recall images, sounds or objects for a few minutes. I doubt it. I tested myself time and time again by looking at things around the class, but I’m pretty sure I just have an average memory (I was able to remember lines off the periodic table and in order, though) and I just want it so badly that I actually believe I do. It’s kind of the same with characters I obsess about. I want them to exist so badly that I actually start looking around for them. If I robber broke into the house, the first thing I’d think is “Is it [character]?” It’s a problem, because it puts me in a false sense of hope that I know is full of lies, but I can’t help and keep hoping.

4th Period (14:15-15:30)
I turned in my Wartime Journal and my teacher was excited when she saw it. It made me really happy and hopeful about my grade.
   Other than that, we worked on Animal Farm and finishing our Romeo & Juliet portfolio. I need some things, anything related to the play to put in. Could be a picture or a song, it doesn’t matter, anything.
   I decided to test my typing speed since we had time left, and the person next to me was watching. A girl a little further away kept distracting me by talking to me and if it was a more silent room, I would have beat my record, cause I got 127 words again. It’s still pretty good, though. So next time he wonders why I always take the initiative to write our documents on Google Drive, he knows it’s because I type very quickly and although he doesn’t know the following, it makes me impatient when people type slowly. It’s one of the few things that does.

After School
I might actually post one of my fanfictions online for the first time ever. I have no idea what to expect from it. I hope people like it to give me tips on how to improve.
   I need to do my art analysis. That’s what I’m not exactly looking forward too, but at least all I have to do is explain the symbolism, which is a little fun to me.
   I might call with Kohai later, depending on my homework. I’m also gonna watch more X Company if my brother won’t be watching something already.

That’s all for today.
