|Current mood:|| okay|
I actually applied for universities. Go Me.
Thursday I was supposed to hand in my stupid annalysis thing in Psych and forgot about it. Oops. We watched a biography on a serial killer, whose name I can't remember right now, but it was really interesting. He started killing at I think it was 18 and he eventually started dissolving the bodies in acid because he had too many bodies to get rid of. I actually don't really remember what else I did on Thursday....meh. Rehearsal went pretty well though.
Friday we had the Medieval unit test in Lit first block. I totally ran out of time with the essay and I didn't get a chance to write all I wanted to, so it'll be interesting to see how I do on that. I almost want Autumn to beat my mark on it, just because she always gets so annoyed because I always beat her. We watched another biography in Psych on the "Killer Clown" which again was really interesting and I forgot to hand in the stupid writeup again. So few people showed up to band that we got to watch the end of Chicago. Mr. Schafer (sp?) was talking about how our class was so good that we should be playing in community bands and he started telling me how he's in a band that would like to have an oboe player but it's out in Ladner. I was just like "yeah, well I'm already really busy."
After school was interesting. Grandma picked us up to take us to Elgin Hall for the Heritage Tea thing and we went to get Tyler. Tyler had told Max that he would start walking down 16th and we could just pick him up. So we drove towards Semi and didn't see him, so we went to the school and looked around for a while and still didn't see him. I asked Max if Tyler would have started walking towards Elgin Hall and Max said something like "why would he go that way?" so we went back to our school to see if he'd managed to get there. Of course, he wasn't there, so we decided to just go because we were going to be late and we ended up passing Tyler. He was a few blocks from the hall and he'd been walking for like 45 minutes.
The tea went okay. We didn't get to do our whole set because we ran out of time. Our last song was Nice Work and it was absolutely brutal. No one sang at the beginning and I think it was supposed to be my solo, but I'm not really sure. UGH. That was bad. Joan Webster gave us a thank-you card with a $40 gift certificate to Ocean Park Pizza, so we decided to go there for dinner after the hockey game. We went to Subway and got food and then Kristen went to hang out with her friends and Kirstin went home for a while and I think Lindsay went home too. She went somewhere anyways and Max had to go to work, so Step, Tyler and I went back to Step's and watched "Life of Brian."
Mrs. Hall drove us to the hockey game and there was actually a pretty good turnout. Eighteen people.
After we finished we went to Ocean Park Pizza. We had to wait for a table because they were full. We were standing out on the street waiting and there were these two ladies sitting in thier car waiting by the bus stop. We started to sing and they got out to look at the bus scedule and then one of them comes and sticks her head in between Tyler and Kirstin and starts listening to us. It turned out she was a music teacher on the island and she thought we were really good. We talked to her for a bit. She was asking us where we were from and stuff.
After we had been seated and we'd ordered the waitress came up to us and said that she was going to pay for our pizza because her son had phoned and he's in Mrs. Hall's class and he told her to pay for us. That was pretty cool. After dinner we sang for them and then we went over to the Esso station to buy candy and then we walked over to Mrs. Hall's to get a ride down to the beach. When we were at Step's Lindsay realized that we hadn't given a tip at the resteraunt, so we went back to give it to them and sang another song. It was fun, and apparently we made the kid's mom cry twice, and not because we were that awful. lol.
We went down to the beach and we wanted to get gelato, but the place we usually go to was closed. Probably because it was almost 10:00 by the time we got there. We hung out on the pier for a while and then we went over to the White Rock and did that "My name is" thing where you lift the person up over your heads. It was fun. I love the beach at night. It's so peaceful, except for the fact that there's all the people in the bars along the street. Some guy walked past us and kept speaking to us in French. It was odd.
Yesterday I slept until around noon. It was great. I had an odd dream, but I don't really remember most of it. Anyways, Mom was going to take me to Willowbrook to get my eyes checked, but I phoned to get an appointment and they were all booked up. Then Mom said she was going up to Zellars to try to find froting stuff for the window between her classroom and her office at school so I decided to go uptown because I had been thinking about walking up to the library and then hanging out up there anyways. I walked around Zellars for a while and then went over to Black Bond. Then I went to the Library around 4:00 and stayed until almost closing time, which is 5:00. I was looking for a book by Nancy Gardener who wrote "Annie On My Mind," but I couldn't find any. The have a pretty shitty selection of young adult books unless there was a stash somewhere I couldn't find. I wound up getting "The Wars" by Timoty Finley, which I probably spelt wrong, but that's okay.
After the library I went and walked around Deals Warehouse. I almost bought another notebook like the one Max and I have to use as a journal, but I didn't for some reason. Then I went back over to the Mall and did another quick look around Black Bond and then phoned Max to see if he wanted to do something. They were having a family dinner, so he couldn't, but he told me that Mom had phoned there looking for me because I was lost or something, so I phoned home and told Dad where I was. Then I went over to the resteraunt that Max and I always go to, the one he calls Betty's Place, and had dinner. It was pretty good, but I ate a ton. Then I walked home. I got home around 7:30. I really like walking in the dark. It's really calming for some reason and I like how quiet it is once you turn onto 164th. When Mom came downstairs she started asking me what I did all day and asking me if everything was okay. Why the hell does me deciding to go out and do something for once mean that something is wrong? OH. MY. GOD. The library. Something must be incredibly wrong in my life for me to do something like visit the library by myself. Jeez. I spend half my life at home, alone on the computer anyways, what difference does it make if I decided to go somewhere else alone?
After I got home I played piano for a while because Carlene was on the computer and then I came online. I talked to Bean and Kate for ages. Bean was filling out university applications, and I figured it might be a good idea for me to apply to a few universities too, with yesterday being the deadline for most schools and all. I hate filling out applications. It's such a pain in the freakin' ass. All of them had a thing asking if you want to apply under Aborigional status and it's so unclear. It said something about being evaluated for entrance if you meet a minimum requirement of 69% and needing two reference letters, but it never actually said for any of the universities whether you needed the reference letters just to apply as aborigional or if it was only if you didn't get in to the faculty you wanted, so I just didn't apply with Aborigional status.
It's kind of funny. The application for SFU (or maybe it was UVic?) had a thing where you check off the minority groups you fit into because they want to "encourage diversity" or something like that. Anyways, I clicked off Aborigional and Visible minority and then I see that there's a box for gay or transgendered. (I wish I remembered how they worded it. It was kind of ammusing. Something about a minority sexual preference or something like that.) Anyways, I saw that and kind of paniced with the whole my-parents-don't-know-but-it-might-help-me-get-into-the-school issue, so I said something to Kate and to Bean about it and Kate starts talking about how you're not supposed to lie on applications, but if I think it might help me get in and then something about how if I want to be gay, then be gay and I said "I kind of am." Her response was "Is that why you always touch me? Or is that just because it annoys me?" lol. I thought she knew with the whole Autumn making that comment about how Gavin has a gorgeous back and then saying to me "this is why you stay bi" and I said "it's not like I can help it." She was freakin' standing right in front of us, so I just assumed she'd heard that. Plus with the whole me and Autumn flirting in English all the time. Whatever. It's funny, I told Bean about that adn she said that if I hadn't told her she would have always thought I was straight. I always thought it was pretty obvious, but I guess not. Or maybe it's just the fact that you don't see it if you're not looking for it. I mean, I decided that I would go on believing that Max was straight unless he told me otherwise because I just didn't care and if someone isn't telling you then it's not really any of your business.
Anyways, I applied to UBC, UVic and SFU and then stopped because I didn't really know anything about any of the other places and those were the only ones I was really planning to apply to in the first place. Then I stayed up and talked kept talking to Bean and Kate and reading fanfics. I ended up online with Kate until almost 2:00.
I woke up at about 9:30 thismorning and couldn't get back to sleep, which kind of sucked...actually, I probably dozed because I stayed in bed until I think 10:30 or later. I played piano for a while then came online and talked to Kate again. It's crazy, she's probably online as much or more than I am.
Max picked me up at about 5:00 to go to Step's for the Oscar party. It was fun. We all got pieces of paper with a nominee for different categories on them and if yours won you got a prize. I won a chocolate bar with a bag of microwave popcorn for having Finding Nemo (best animated film) and a bottle of I think it was 2001 Merlot for some other thing where she just had people and then the prizes had a picture of someone and if yours matched one of the prizes you won. I gave that to Max to take home so we can drink it sometime and Mrs. Hall told Debby to take it on the tour. I think not. She gave me another prize to "make up" for the wine that she thought I was giving away though, which I felt kind of bad about, but I wasn't going to tell her that Max and I were going to drink it. There was also a "booby prize" which was a picture of Janet Jackson's boob from the Super Bowl or whenever it was.
Spot showed up part way through. She'd just gotten home from Idaho and her parents are in Hong Kong or something so she came to Step's.
We also had the quiz as usual. Lindsay won by a long shot. She got 60 right, which is absolutely insane. I got 34, but it was marked as 33. David didn't win the pot for once. Some kid called Bob and some lady at Mrs. Hall's school tied. I only got three right. If I'd guessed LotR for all the categories I would have had 9 instead, not that it would have made much of a difference, but I would have beat Max and Mom.
When I got home I came online -suprise, suprise- and Kate was online AGAIN. I talked to her for a while and then she deserted me a little after 10:00 to go to bed of all things. I also talked to Janet of all people, of course, she just wanted to know what my marks were. She seemed pretty shocked that I only got 80's in all my courses and even more suprised when I told her I only got one A, but MEH. Then I talked to Bean for a while and she deserted me too. I was still going to say something and Dad came in so I put away the conversation for a while and she left. Blah. Stupid people with their interupting my internet. I depsise having people looking over my shoulder at my conversations.
Anyways, it's getting late-ish so I should probably go to bed. I want to actually be able to get to sleep tomorrow.
