Something weird happened to me today. So I was doing a project about stars in Astronomy, and my lab partner looks at my handwriting and says, "I bet you're a butch."
"What?" I say, puzzled. (I haven't really come out fully yet)
"You're handwriting is very masculine," she says. I'm pretty sure she wasn't joking either. She then proceeded to tell me that my voice, my clothes, and my handwriting all scream "butch," as she so nicely puts it.
First of all, how the hell do you know if someone's gay just by looking at their handwriting? Second, I don't really believe in all those lesbian stereotypes. I mean, just because a girl buys T-shirts from the dude's section at the store doesn't necessarily mean she's gay. Does anyone care to explain to me where people get this stereotype of what all lesbians look like from? The girl didn't bother me though. I don't think she was being rude. She's always been cool and she's hilarious.
Great news! I won't have to pick between German and Journalism next year! German IV is being offered 7th period and Journalism 8th period. Now I can commit to both. Frau Bakker is so pleased. I love that woman. But her chapter tests are ridiculously hard. I hope I didn't fail the one I took today.
Speaking of german, the whole german club is being featured in the school yearbook, which includes me, since I'm the club's vice president. Bleh. I had to do an interview with someone on the yearbook staff, and they took a shitload of pictures of me, which I HATE. I can't stand getting my picture taken. Something about seeing myself in a photograph bothers me. It's weird.
You know what I hate? When you're really irritated and you feel like being alone, and people feel the need to hover over you when it's obvious that you need some alone time. I had to deal with that today. My friend kept demanding to know what was wrong, following me around and shit. Gah. She knows I'm not always the most pleasant person to be around. Why push me? When you push me, I detach myself more. Why does she not understand this? I don't really consider her a friend. Just someone to talk to when I'm bored and need to pass the time. She's not a very good friend. She's very self-centered and her problems are always more important than everyone else's. And frankly, she's a whore. She claims to love one guy. Then two days pass, and she finds another guy and forgets about the first one that she was supposedly going to marry. Jesus. I don't understand how other teens do that all the time. How do you love someone for a few days and keep switching to a new person? I could never do that.
