i'm feeling quite today!
I'm trying to convince my Mom to let me be the Webmaster of her MAIP (some school comitee-related thing of hers) group's webpage. They'd pay me to design the site, build and maintain it. My brother used to do this, and they just sent him a check for $500...and the crazy guy isn't doing it anymore because he's too lazy. X_x I feel confident enough in my HTML skills to make a good site- and plus, web design is just plain fun! ^_^ I never knew I'd get so interested in it. I want to take a course in some time; maybe college. I want to minor in it, along with Japanese language, art, and a bunch of other stuff. Too many wants ;_; But anyway, if I do get the job, I'll get to do something I love, and get paid while I'm at it. Sounds good to me! :D
I can't believe this. It's only about 10:00, and I'm already tired. Me, who stays up until about 1:00 a.m. or so, until I eventually pry myself away from the computer to go to bed. What's the deal? I must de having a tempermental relapse, or some kind of brain aneurism that's affecting my sleeping patterns. Cool. ^__^ And I should almost skip school tomorrow; I have that easy of a day. It's like study, Spanish (we have a sub), History (our teacher might as well be a sub- we never do anything), and Orchestra. Not like we do much of anything there either. Ummm...and movies? Saturday? Yeah. Elena, Colleen, and I have to go shopping for our silly Bobby Soxer outfits for the play. I'm thinking plaid skirts, cardigans, and saddle shoes, oh my.

All I could think about today was coming home and looking at CLAMP art. It's just so pretty. I only wish I could draw as well as they can. I guess we can all dream. So I just went here and looked at all the beautiful MKR manga pics. **drool** I wanna plaster these all around my room. Oh, what a wondrous room I would have then. ^_^
Back again. Our trip was ok, but there were a lot of crappy things about it. Including one very immature girl on the trip (a Freshman, no less) who made up a story about being raped for no particular reason. I can't believe how incredibly stupid some people are. Oh well, at least she's getting expelled. I have no sympathy for people like her- I'm just glad she won't be in my school anymore. There were a lot of other things on the trip that made it really crappy (digusting food that made many people sick, having to perform in a crowded cafeteria, one bed in a tiny room for 4 people, perverted boys, the incident above, unwanted room mates, "trip nazis", 12 hour bus rides, yada yada) but there were some good things. Like the Smithsonian, getting to go off by ourselves for the day, King's Dominion, funny foreigners/tourists, funny boys, Cherry Blossom trees, good weather, super nice and cool chaperones, and getting to share Discman's/songs with eachother. I think the trip could have been a lot better (especially if the Chorus hadn't gone- they are a bunch of immature brats), but it wasn't that bad. The weird thing is that I almost feel like I have jet lag. That's funny. I don't even know what jet lag is.

Gah, finally finished packing. Today was just a jumble of things to do, and I am so incredibly sick of hearing my mother say again "Have you packed yet??". -_-; I don't work well with people breathing down my neck, thank you. So down to D.C., for five days, without compy-chan! *cry* J/k, I think I'm seriously addicted. Time off will do me good ^__^ I can't wait to see the Cherry Blossom trees...I hear they're really pretty! Eeeek! I must get to bed, and try to get some sleep. Main word try there. I have a feeling the grumbling beast who lives below me will be staying up all night online. Suprise, suprise. Anywho...bedness. Bye! ^_^
I've been playing snood all day. It's so much fun! And so addictive. XD Now, why can't they have something like this in arcades? I'd be hogging it all day. ^_^
Now I know why I never go to church. My parents made Nathan and I go there this morning, and it just made me sick. I sat there looking around at all the people, and it just amazed me that no one questioned what they were being told. I can't believe they just choose to blindly follow in their religion. The saddest part was seeing all the little kids going up for the "children's time" and watching them hang on the minister's every word. To me, all they're doing is brainwashing those kids. They hammer all these beliefs into the kids when they can't even think for themselves, and then the kids grow up to not think for themselves either. It's a vicious cycle. It's almost funny, because I used to like going to church when I was little too. Then again, that's when I was ignorant too, and just like those little kids I couldn't think for myself either. The thing that bugs me the most about religion is that you can't think for yourself. Religion makes up the things for you to believe, and you have to believe them, or you're "not in". Puke, it's just like some twisted social clique. Just sick.
I'm on such a music trip- I've been downloading Ace Of Base songs all day. They have such funkadelic songs XD I was also watching some complete rip-off show of MTV's "Fear" on Fox Family. I think it's called "Scariest Places On Earth" or something close to that. Basically a small group of people have to stay in one of the "scariest places on earth" picked by the producers for a night without running away, and then they get some ridiculous sum of money. The one I watched had the people going to an old Irish castle where they had to stay for the night. Um, it really didn't look that scary- at least MTV picks scary places. I probably would have been scared if I did it, but at least I know ghosts don't exist. And my case finally came today! It's soooooo much lighter than my other one. And it's purdy blue velvet inside :B
Eeeeeeiiiya!! *jump, kick, JUMP* Vacation, hear me roar!!!! ^__^ I'm just so hyper after realizing that we have the next 9 days off. Sugoi!!!! Yes, much too hyper. *nod nod* I've been jumping around all day getting everyone phyched about the trip.
Me: We iz gonna rock, ma peeps. Wez got the skeelz.
Everyone: ...Ok Caitlyn, hand over the drugs. Nice and slow...
Me: I pity da foo' who can't REPRESENT. Chaaaaa, my Orchestra posse, yo. Wez got the SKEELZ, mad skeelz.
Me: That funkyass Band, yo. They can't REPRESENT. Wez gonna open up a can of WHOPASS on dem players, symphonic style, yo.
Me: And that punk-ass Chorus, de think they all playas, but they just sorry ass bitches to that wackass wannabe director. They think theyz strong playas, but they can't be down with the rest o' the two musical posses. Theyz a bunch o' PUNK ASS BEEYOTCHES.
Me: Straight up, ma homeyz.

I got off scott free today since we had MCAS- all I had for classes was History (easy) and Orchestra (all we did was talk about the trip). We had the English MCAS today, but it was only one question, an essay one. We got 80 minutes to write our rough draft, and then another 80 to write the final. I think mine came out to be 4 pages...I had to write very tiny :X I thought it went well. Except a certain "J" person behind me (Brooke, you know who I'm talking about) was threatening to burn his test and kept asking what the penalty was if anyone cheated. Except you really can't cheat on the essay part. Even when we take the multiple choice parts, you can't cheat either, because all the tests are different. Yeah. I didn't really think it was that hard, but that's just me. I mean, come on. You can draw smiley faces on your tests and they'd pass you. Well, not really. But you get the idea. In other words
Nonne sum cura! ¡No estoy preocupada! I'm just not worried.
Is anyone as annoyed as I am about this whole 10-number-number thing? I don't know if it's just a Northeast thing, but instead of the regular six-digit number we call when we make a local call, now we have to stick on a 1 and the area code too. I know it's not that big a deal to add 4 more digits when I'm calling someone, but honestly...that many numbers just to call my next-door neighbor? It's just plain annoying. I might as well walk over. At least then I'd get some exercise too. *nod* I didn't realize until now just how overrun our population is getting. It's because all those little 12-year-olds are having babies now, I swear. T_T
Wow...I just got back from the movies. My friend Maggie and I finally went and saw "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"! I liked the fight scenes a lot (wow to the special effects people) and it was suprisingly centered almost all on the women, which worked. I loved the whole Jen and Lo story/romance...it's so sweet! ^_^ The subtitles were really easy to read too, and there were only a few minor things I didn't get about the story. The ending kind of left me dissapointed though. It was good, but- well, you just have to see it I guess ^^ I thought the movie was good, but not as good as say...Charlie's Angels XD Now I'm going to bed. TGIF.
Only one more test...only one more test...just...one...more X_x Did I mention that I went to bed at 4:30 in the morning yesterday? Did I also mention how much my teachers absolutely suck? The funny thing is that I got less than two hours of sleep and I haven't collapsed yet. ^__^ I'm not even quite sure why I find that funny. It's just funny in a really sick, sick way. I really need some drugs or something. Prozac would work. I'd still be tired, but at least I'd be a happy insomniac.

"Roadtrip's the word!!!" Ok, so maybe it isn't...but that Grease song has been torturing me all day by repetedly dancing in my head :X I think this weekend my family's going to Virginia to see our relatives, and that means more than 12 hours in the car :D I just like long car rides for some reason, they're a lot of fun. Plus I think we're bringing our dog, which is a kind-of-good, kind-of-bad thing. I don't mind that much though, because I hate leaving him at the kennel ;_; *huggles Tyler* My aunt just had twins too, so we get to see them. I always thought I wanted to have twins. I'm not so sure anymore. I don't think I could take having two or more kids at one time -_- Anyway, it's not like I'll be having kids any time soon (if at all) so I could really care less. I always find it funny when girls think up names for their "future sons or daughters." What, do they already have some ten year plan going, or is there something I'm missing? They all seem to think that having kids is essential to growing up, or is the only thing that's important in the future. *eyeroll* So we'll be staying there for the weekend, and then Nathan and I have to come back for our trip on Monday. *cheers* I can't wait!! ^_^
Eeek! I'm blogging so late. ^^ I can't really help it though- I have so much work to do ;_; I hate this cram week we have right before vacation when teachers assign tons of tests and projects >_< It's so stressful, and there's a lot of pressure to get some really good grades in before the term ends. The thing that really irkes me is knowing I'll have another four years of this once I go to college. *hits head on keyboard repetedly* Sorry compy-chan, we'll get a break soon. If I survive, that is.
Isn't this Chibi Moon cosplayer so cute? Her costume's great, and she looks just like Chibiusa ^_^ The scary part is the Sailor Cosmos- that's a guy X_x And what's even more scary is that his costume is better than most BSSM costumes out there. Buuut...I still wish I had a little sister I could dress up like Chibi Moon or one of the senshi ^^;;; My own little kawaii chibi-sister!!! Eeeeeyaaaa!! >:D
ow ow oww...we were rushing to get out of the house this morning, and I tripped and fell, and ended up scraping my knee very well ;_; I had my long skirt on, so it covered the big bloody red spot, but it hurt like a bitch. So we didn't even end up being late (which was why we were rushing) so I just sat there with my knee throbbing for 30 minutes waiting for the concert to start -_- I was going to ask for a gauze pad or some sort of medical assistance, but I thought I'd be a big girl and tough it out until the concert was over. I can be really stupid sometimes. Aside from my unfortunate self-inflicted accident, I'd say we played well and the concert was very good. Now I'm just alternating ice and a heatpack on my knee in hopes that I won't have too big of a goosebump were the skin is now missing. Yuck.
