Calculators Killed the Dinosaurs

So, as I've probably mentioned, I'm on the yearbook and newspaper staff at school. Last Friday, I was allowed to use one of the good cameras (You know, the DSLR ones with the special lenses!) to take pictures, and I absolutely fell in love. I felt so professional and awesome! But I'll never be able to afford one of my own... :'(

However, I am able to afford a 3DS, so I bought a shiny new red one! It's pretty great so far, but I was on a budget, so I only got 1 game for it. Star Fox. My next purchase shall be Zelda. I hate going in that Gamestop, though... It's the one where that douchey guy gave me shit about being a girl. He wasn't there this time, but I kept getting ignored by the guy behind the counter. I don't think it was because I'm a girl, though. I think he was just kind of an asshole. He kept telling me to "wait a moment" while helping everyone around and behind me, even people with in-depth questions and stuff.

Also, on Sunday, I set out to find my Gameboy Advance at my dad's/grandparents' house because I wanted to play some GBA, but the 3DS has no GBA slot and my sister borrowed my DS Lite. I found mine; it's the old horizontal white one. It's so weird-looking to me now. And did you know that GBAs are 10 years old? Damn, that's just unreal to me! I remember getting mine like it was just yesterday, but it was 10 years ago. I tried for weeks before it came out to convince my mom to get me one by saying the screen was bigger and therefore better for my eyes than the Gameboy Color's. (I'm not actually sure if it even is really bigger.) Hahaha. She eventually caved and let Granny take me to the (now out-of-business) toy store to buy one!

I actually had a pretty big GBA game collection... I'll have to look through what remains of it and see if any besides Pokemon, Metroid, Kirby, and Zelda would appeal to me now. Maybe I'll hit up the good pawn shop too at some point, or see if Gamestop still has any used GBA games at all when I buy Zelda for the 3DS. I mean, they'll all be like $5 anyway, so I can get a bunch.

While searching for my GBA, I found 2 of my favorite computer games from back in the day. Rollercoaster Tycoon and Spy Fox! Both of them also miraculously worked on my laptop, but Spy Fox was a little laggy.

Sorry, you don't want to hear my nerdy game adventures! I'm so cool, you guys, can't you tell? Haha! Moving on now...

Anyway, my car broke at school on Friday, and I had to ride home with my 10th grade chemistry teacher, who hated me. It was so awkward. At least the car's in the shop now, so it should be fixed soon. But the first thing she asked me was why I didn't try in her class. That pissed me right the fuck off. I did try, but she was just shit at teaching. And I made an 83 in the class. That is not THAT bad, especially considering there were guys in there who made 40s.

Worst 20 minutes ever. She asked all sorts of awkward questions, such as how I liked my teachers this year. I wanted to say that all of them are mega jackasses except my amazing English teacher, but I was scared, so I said they were all fine but I liked the English teacher best. Also, this:

Chemistry Teacher: Do you not take French anymore?
Me: Nah, I didn't like the work very much and wanted more time to take new classes.
Chemistry Teacher: I bet you didn't like it because of that FCG. The French teacher said she was whiny.
Me: Umm, excuse me? FCG is my friend. I love her.
Chemistry Teacher: Oh. That's... uh... nice?

Well, fuck you, lady.

Speaking of FCG, I heard she was coming to town last week, but she got sick, so she didn't. Now I heard she's coming to town this weekend. So I told myself that I had to try to talk to her this week. On Facebook she posted that she lost her phone, which made me feel better because I'm always stalling and procrastinating, but she has it back now, so I have no excuse. I'm nervous. I just really want to talk to her again, but I wasn't so lucky the last couple times I tried.

I HATE my car being broken, though... I feel so powerless and dependent without it. It's awful. And Granny has to make a special trip to school to pick me up, which makes me feel terrible because gas is expensive.

In other news, today at school, British Girl asked me to cuddle with her. I did, and it wasn't weird at the time, and I didn't even think about it until way later, but is that weird? I mean, since I'm gay and she's straight? And since I can't exactly remember if I told her I'm gay or not? I'm not attracted to her or anything, so I hope that means it's not weird 'cause I felt loved. Hahaha.

Anyway, I'm gonna go ignore my history homework and play more GBA like I'm 7 years old.

Haha I know! I love Spy Fox!

Haha I know! I love Spy Fox! I had all 3 of them, but I could only find the second one.

I have very vivid memories of how I used to play it with my best friend at the time, and we would eat spray cheese on crackers and get crumbs allll in the keyboard. Every single time.

:-)

I think I played the first one from the library and then we bought the third one at some point. I played Freddi Fish more, though. I had ALL of those games.

I had PuttPutt too! I had

I had PuttPutt too! I had the one where you save the zoo and one that involved the moon, I think.

I never had one of those original massive grey Gameboys. My first Gameboy was a Gameboy Color, about a year or two before the GBA came out.
