That Awful Realization: You Now Like Twitter

So it started with a Facebook post from some irrelevant group that was liked months ago for some sentiment or another and now they all post pictures that don’t relate to their name but are (supposed to be, anyway) funny in order to keep the fans enjoying the page.
Which is funny, because it doesn’t matter if you don’t post funny things – if you don’t, there is no reason for someone to unfollow your group or page or whatever. You aren’t offending them and it’s unlikely for someone to say, “X page isn’t entertaining me, and therefore I am going to stop liking it!”

Anyhow! I digress.

The picture … I am mobile blogging, I can probably put it here!!
Well damn, that didn’t work. But I can link to the Twitter post! So let’s do that.
Phew. iPhones are kickass. I am, unfortunately, not being paid to sponsor iPhones (I don’t have a big enough blog for that, ha!) nor do I have the best or newest or even the next-to-newest… I have a 3G (I think) which means no Siri. And I haven’t updated to iOS 6 yet, either, because I have heard baaaad things about it. BUT overall my iPhone makes me happy, it’s very reliable and versatile, the battery life depends on the usage which is fair, and just is overall a pretty great phone.


Wow, I hope that works. In the mobile app, I’m apparently seeing the coding version of the post, and that is of course ugly.

In any event. I keep digressing. Sorry, this is what happens when I become too busy to blog. :c

So with that picture the thought entered my mind that, “Oh my god, my Mom’s Scottish friend would like that!”

At this point, however, I didn’t know how to add pictures to Twitter.

Later, I was sitting alone very bored in my house, very still because I am sick and I keep coughing up a storm if I relax too much. And I decided to look at pictures on my phone when I accidentally held my finger over a picture too long which made the little options-UI show up. (Since I know not everyone has an iPhone I would like to post a picture of this but alas you will have to wait until I get my laptop at some point in the future.)
And one of the options was … TWEET!
And that is how you use TwitPic! I never knew.

Tl;dr: I posted a Scottish joke on Twitter for a Scottish guy, and his reaction is not exactly describable as good or bad. Damn.

In summary, I haven’t had my computer for approximately a week (has it really only been one week?) and as such blogging is difficult, but of course — here I am, on the WordPress app I downloaded a year ago and never use. C:

Will write more soon!


First day of junior year & a little more ranting.

Today was my first day of junior year, as the title suggests. My class lineup (for A days) is as follows:

  • AP Psychology
  • Algebra II
  • Creative Writing
  • Chemistry

Psychology was all right, mostly because I knew the teacher ahead of time and he’s a pretty funny guy. There are only two people in the class who I know at all and neither of them are really friendly to me. The rest are mostly seniors.

Algebra went okay. I have two friends in there from the couple years I’ve been locked away in Connecticut. I don’t know the teacher very well but she seems nice, and we have another student teacher this year just like freshman year and Algebra I. Unlike the freshman student teacher, though, this lady seems very reserved and meek.  I don’t know how helpful she’ll actually be to the class or if she’s open enough to be a teacher.

Creative writing was a wonderful course and I’m already so glad I took it. The teacher is an absolute delight and wickedly funny. Plus the fact we’ll be writing so much is just a great, great thing all by itself. Unfortunately, probably half of this class is full of kids who are seniors and only in the class for the credit. That’s worrisome to me, but I doubt it’ll affect me very much in this kind of class.

And finally chemistry, which I’m a little apprehensive about because the sciences have given me some trouble in the past years. I’m still in all accelerated courses (excluding the AP Psych and English which I have tomorrow) so it’s not a LOT of trouble, but I’m still worried mildly about it. The teacher seems nice, however, so that’s always a plus. She seems slightly reserved as well but has a chipper sense of humor.

I’m a little worried about tomorrow still, because there are four more new classes. (Rather, three – one is a study hall for the first semester and I’ll probably be resuming my job in the library during that time. Still, though, there’s a new library media specialist this year and that’s unfortunate.) But at least we have a three day weekend, so it’s kind of easing into the school year.

Now … for a little rant. You all know my mother from the previous post. She was a little less ridiculous and angry and shit tonight (rather, much less angry) but she still cares more about her Twitter personality and friends in other countries than her daughter. Granted I have been away for two months, but I still feel like she’s being a shit mom and it really sucks to feel like I don’t matter.

Oh well. Anyway, I’m going to relax for awhile before bed. Last night I had a hard time going to sleep (not falling asleep until a while after midnight) but fortunately I don’t think that’ll be a problem tonight.
