i saw taxi driver today and i loved it except for the ending, i didn't like it at all but still worth watching. my thoughtful teachers decided to leave me homework for the weekend which i appreciate. i have to rewrite my rough draft on my short story and the worst part is i wrote it three pages long, front and back, which was 12 paragraphs. statistics is so difficult and i think i'm already starting to fall behind. the teacher gives us homework everyday but fortunately he gives us two days to work on it and i procrastinate on it. for me procrastination and masturbation go hand-in-hand.
this week has treated me so horribly. i'm so glad tomorrow is friday and i can finally rest. i never thought my classes would be difficult. they lied to me saying that stats is easier than trig! that class is way harder and i'm starting to fall behind and i have quizzes and tests coming up next week. i wrote a three page short story on an experience where i had to wear a mask and role-play for an assignment due tomorrow. i actually made it up but made multiple references to "Julius Caeser" even though i never finished reading it.
i've been in school for almost two weeks and i already want to stop. i get stressed easily because i start thinking about what's going to happen, what i don't want to happen, what might happen, what i wish could happen and so forth. if i forget to do something important, i drop dead because i am so worried about the outcome. i exaggerate how much homework i get because i think it'll take an hour to do and i can only sleep at 9:30 and no later than that because then i won't wake up and i'll be late and it takes forty minutes to get to school and God knows what i've missed already.
today i went to a small family gathering at my aunt's house. it was really fun and i played with my younger cousins. they usually have loads of fun with me and my brother mostly because we can carry them and spin them around and around.
so as i walking to school this morning i noticed something bizarre and out of the ordinary: a red tibetan mastiff walking by itself. i almost stood there for more than 5 seconds thinking of what to do. if you don't know, these dogs fetch more than a million dollars and are so adorable. however, i did see a man near the dog but i'm not quite sure whether he is in fact the owner. i would've taken the dog but not to sell it.
i woke up at 5:15 today, took a shower, put on my makeup, fixed my hair, dressed in casual yet formal clothing (dress shirt with sleeves rolled and tucked in, skinny jeans, and black suede shoes with a brown messenger bag). i ate breakfast and left my house at 6:45 and walked to school and arrived at 7:20. they had us look for our names which had our homeroom but since the school is fairly small, it was very crowded. i wound up finding my name after it was cleared and made my way to homeroom. there the teacher gave us our schedules. there it was: the classes listed in chronological order.
today i went to the beach and then went to a restaurant for dinner. i am so tired and i need to start sleeping earlier like at nine or something. i might go see "apollo 18" this friday and i don't understand why some people are gullible enough to believe in these mockumentaries. i remember a colleague of mine made a project on aliens claiming they're real and i completely disagreed with her. she used the mockumentary "the fourth kind" to back her statement up. i still can't believe i'm the one that pointed it out and not the teacher.
today i went to see "don't be afraid of the dark" and "our idiot brother" with my family. it was a double feature cinema and we had so much fun! i expected the guillermo del toro film to be much better than what it actually was so i don't really recommend it. "our idiot brother" was so funny and cute and i just loved zooey deschanel. paul rudd is incredibly hilarious. i recommend you guys see it sometime.
today in the mail i received my results from the cst i took back in may. for those who aren't native californians, the cst is a state exam that checks to see your progress in school subjects, i think. they added world history as a subject this year. however, they didn't include one question about the holocaust. here's the subject, score, and performance level:
-english-language arts, 429, advanced.
-geometry, 266, below basic.
-world history, 461, advanced.
-biology, 389, proficient.
-life science, 431, advanced.
there's a person posing as joseph mccarthy on twitter and he calls himself "RedScareBot." he/she has a link to an article talking about the red scare. i'll have a journal post tomorrow.

i just got back from the orthodontist and i went by myself using public transportation. oh my goodness it was so annoying because i didn't know which bus to ride that would've taken me home. i called my brother and he told me which one to take. i waited for 40 minutes for it to arrive and keep in mind that i was near downtown los angeles which is basically skidrow. i'm just really tired and i want to take a nap so badly, but when i wake up and get ready i can't fall asleep anymore.
hello ladies and gentlemen. i've been working on an essay that will present my ideas and ideal form of government. i'll cite sources and the last time i commented asking for sources on someone's "fact", people became angry with me.
i've just read the most inspiring news tonight: the libyan rebels have secured the tripoli center! this means that gaddafi's rule is about to collapse. they have arrested his son and the heir as well. oy vey iz frizzhead (pardon my yiddish)!
enjoy because it's going to get messy.
here's how the game of politics works: you get to choose to be in one of the two teams; red or blue, and you can switch back and forth as many times as you want, but no one will really like you as a teammate or believe you're part of the team. afterwards, you have 40% from the 100% of citizens on your team and another 40% go to the other team. your job is to convince the other 20% of undecided players to join your team. the game will get rough, dirty, and unfair, but that's how it works. you can add to the game if you'd like.
good evening everyone i've been contemplating alot this week due partly to that beauty experience. i started to rethink what i'm going to do as i get older.
i plan on becoming a male model. i'm going to give you all a minute to take that in. my friends are telling me to go for it and it's risky, but i've planned it out. i'm still going to college but won't pursue a photography career and study something else that'll be my backup plan in case the modeling career doesn't work out. i haven't told my parents yet and i don't plan to so soon.
