Sheezus that was fast. I'll write my inevitable year reflection later.
Today, Chad was scootering to swimming, like he always does, and then a guy comes up to me and was all like "scooters are gay, you know man?" and I was all like wow. I didn't know people actually did that. Like, why would you just tell someone literally on the side of the road that what they have is gay? I just like still can't believe that really happened.
I was too stunned to answer at the time, but I wish I'd had the brain power to say something creative like "well, how bout I beat yo ass with this scooter? Would that be straight enough for you?"
Usually I have like a 2nd best rule on what I say in pinch situations.
Like, if someone does something, my response is usually like the second best thing I could've done, and then later I think of something Ahmazing and I get all pissed I didn't say it.
Ooh, speaking of brain power, I found out that, being a morning person, my mental abilities start out low in the early morning, quickly rise, peak out at about 1 PM, then slowly fall over the rest of the day. Evening people start out REALLY low in the morning and slowly rise throughout the day.
But that means that my peak brain power is in CHEMISTRY, and 2nd best is trig, and 3rd is Health, and 4th is orchestra.
The two classes I actually need it for, less so German and more so English, are of course my first two classes, with English being FREAKING FIRST, making it my worst class for brain power of the day.
All those other classes I don't need any brain power! The chemistry teacher teaches me nothing I couldn't learn 3 times as fast on my own if I felt so inclined.
That's why I love her, because that means I can decide how much chemistry I actually want to learn, if I want to just A the class, or if I actually want to learn things about chemistry.
Well, Chad is tired. I have nothing to look forward to. Except for that swim meet next weekend, which is pretty exciting.
But one of the things that makes life the most terrible is nothing to indicate it might get better soon.
Optimism is a tiring way to go.
Oh, I have a question. Do you ever like just wake up and have like a day or maybe even up to a week where you just feel like terrible and disgusting or being gay, bi, trans, whatevs? Like does everyone do that?
I just get that sometimes. Like now.
