I think I might be addicted to the Big King at Burger King. I just had one for dinner and all I want is another one. Something about the special sauce, I think. I’m craving it. That’s also the reason I craved Sonic’s breakfast burrito: the tangy cheese sauce. It’s the tang that I think is what hooks me. It’s really upsetting, because I can’t focus on my summer reading, and I’m only 48 pages into Fast Food Nation. I still have The Jungle to read, and possibly do a bunch of math (idk all the math teachers did a really bad job of informing us on our summer work.) At this rate, I might have to fake sickness in order to get out of the first day of school and finish my work. I’m extremely upset at myself and my teachers. Myself for fairly obvious reasons (procrastination) and teachers for giving homework.
I was thinking (wow shocker) and I realized that my quarrel is not so much with going to school. I’m cool with that, and with a little adjustment, I could possibly get used to the teaching systems. It’s the homework. All’s well when I’m in school, a learning environment, surrounded by my peers (I guess. I mean I really don’t like them. They’re irritating) who are also learning the same things as me. But when you assign me extra work and send me home, an environment of comfortability and relaxation, I can’t handle it. My brain malfunctions and says “nope we are not doing any work” and then I end up doing all my work in a sleep-deprived rush in the middle of the night, or, y’know, as the teacher is taking it up, whatever. It just doesn’t work for me.
I realize now why Study Hall is an option: so students who have trouble with this can stay within the learning environment, but not get any extra work at the same time. Now I just need to find a way to motivate myself to take advantage of the study hall and organize my homework. Are there any good free apps on the appstore? I just figure, since I always have my phone, it’d be smart to keep my agenda on there.
Anyway, I’m excited. (You have to tell them why, Coolio) INTO THE WOODS IS GETTING A MOVIE OMG YES
IF YOUVE SEEN THE AD OMG ITS AMAZING
It’s gonna have Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, and a bunch of other actors, but those are the ones I remember. I’m so ready, though. (Into the Woods is a musical. My 6th grade choir did the Jr version, and it was my first actual play. (I don’t count little church skits) It greatly affected me, and was the cause of my appreciation of musicals.) I’m ready for it noooow. The ad reminded me a lot of the recent Alice in Wonderland movie, also starring Johnny Depp. It’s got that creepy-ish feel about it. If you wanna watch a performance before you see the movie, there’s a full version on Netflix. It’s amazing, and all the songs are great. Trust me, it won’t be a waste of your time.
Also, me and some friends in my youth group have all decided to cut out social media for a month, and I’m assuming that includes blogging, so I’ll vanish on the sixth and be back in September, if all goes well. It’s a thing we’re trying: cut something out to make room for the Lord. The idea actually caused me to read more of my Bible yay! (I hope you don’t see the word Bible and cringe. I’m not like the Westboro Baptist Church. I can guarantee you that the WBC is not a common thing. I see them as an embarrassment. I fully support gender equality and marriage equality. I also happen to believe that Christ died for our sins and was resurrected three days later, etc etc etc. It’s not an either/or thing, okay? I just wish more people would realize that.)
Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m fasting from social media, not off hunting demons with Team Free Will. (Although, hunting with the boys sounds like way more fun than social media…)
