I hope some of you got the harry potter reference.
Well, it's the National Day of Silence tommorow! It's exciting, but why does it have to be on a Friday? Seriously.
That's like when we have to turn EVERYTHING in. We have book talks tommorow. That's going to be just a little hard without being able to talk...
And also, I always have a lot to say. It's gonna suck not being able to say it.
However, I bet it's much worse if I'm silenced every day so I can't say what I want, which is what the whole day is about...
Today, I decided I'm going to eat more. Not that I just need to eat more, that's already been decided.
But, the thing is, like a week or two ago, I stood up in orchestra, and the teacher looked at me and was like "woah, have you lost weight this year?"
I don't know...
Maybe I have.
I do 5 miles on the treadmill 3 times a week. My swim coach tells me to. When I check the "calories burned", it usually says 662...
I don't think I'm burning that much. It's probably assuming someone heavier than me.
But I'm burning a lot.
AND, every day pretty much I swim two hours, and at a higher intensity than I run at. That has to be 1500 calories right there.
And also, I have growing to do. I want to be really tall some day. Tall people are fast people.
But, if I had to give a rough estimate, I eat maybe 2500 calories a day, maybe.
Well, whatever it is, it's not enough. My dryland coach told me to eat healty food, but a lot of it.
Where does douchiness come from? Where do douchy people get their vanity from?
In P.E., we're doing floor hockey right now. One of the people in my group is probably the douchiest guy I know, named Alex. He's puny, and squeaky. Whenever the gym teacher plays music (also douchy), he does even DOUCHIER dancing. And he's getting all vain about how our floor hockey team is the champions of the bracket.
I'm just stunned at this. There's a lot of REALLY douchy people. How can THAT many people have such high opinions of themselves?
Do they think they're cool, and that's a reason to have a huge ego?
I've been a douche before.
Usually for swimming.
I thought I was fast.
And I was.
But to get inflated about it is stupid, because in a year, I'll be way faster, and thinking of how stupid I was to think I was good a year ago.
Hell, getting a feeling of significance is one of the reasons I swim! If I can get Junior Nationals, then I can finally feel I have accomplished something. I have actually gotten into something that requires skill, and 300 million people have the ability to try for.
But I won't get douchey.
Why can't douches understand that they're just ONE little insignificant douche in a world that's full of 100's of millions of douches, and to feel cool, accomplished, and significant without actually doing anything is stupid?
