One of Those Days

Today has been a somewhat trying day for me. It's mostly just been one thing after another. We didn't have school yesterday so today was the first day back. And what do our P.E. teachers decide to do on the first day of the week? Circuits. Yuck. It's basically eight different stations around the gym where you do 50 reps of something like push-ups, burpees, line jumps, etc. with a lap in between. And then a 5 minute run. We did these 3 times. I mean, come on! It's basically a Monday morning! Then in English we have a huge, ginormous, humongous research paper due tomorrow that we've been working on since the beginning of January. And we had a trig test where I missed at least 3 problems (I didn't even do one of them), each worth 7 points. And to top it off my printer ran out of ink when I was trying to print my paper. Whew!

And let me just say that people (cough, cough Jeannine) have not been helpful. In after trig, in band, two of my friends and I were talking about this hard proof on the test when Miss I Know Everything walks up. "Oh, are you talking about the first proof? I thought that one was so easy!" Yeah, I bet you did. Know what else would be easy? Me, kicking your ass. Anyways... But seriously, is she trying to get people to not like her? Because it's working. I honestly just don't get it.

Exactly! (My dad and I joke about this all the time.)
This has inspired me to write my top five least favorite personality traits: 
  1. Pompous: There is nothing more I hate most in this world, when talking about people's personalities. It's just so ugly. I don't mind a little bragging. I get it, you're proud of something you did. I do it myself sometimes. But when it's excessive, and I've done the exact same thing. No. This is not all right.
  2. Pessimism: I understand what it's like to be depressed. I myself battle this frequently. But not everything in the world is death and rain storms. It does nothing to help other people's moods when you constantly talk about how you're going to fail at something or something bad is going to happen.
  3. Dishonesty: How hard is it to be honest? I feel like it's more of a bad habit. I can't stand the feeling of not being able to trust someone. I operate under the belief that if I catch you being dishonest with me once, I'll probably never expect you to be honest. It's just so shady, and makes me wonder what else is a lie.
  4. Lazy: I know a handful of people who are very intelligent and comprehend things easily. But they just don't apply themselves! It just blows my mind how someone can be so smart and be capable of getting As and Bs but decides to barely pass or fail. I know part of it is my perfectionism, but why not use the gift God gave you? Why not give yourself a better future?
  5. Dependent: I'm aware that it's okay to be dependent. To a degree. I mean, I'm dependent on my parents to support me and stuff like that. But I don't think it's okay to be dependent on someone emotionally. It's not healthy to base your happiness on another person's. It's just so unattractive to see someone who can't live without their boyfriend or girlfriend. Again, I know part of my feeling like this is just the way I am. I'm an extremely independent person. But, please, try to be your own person.
 Sorry for the kind of complain-y posts lately, but that's just the kind of mood I've been in lately. The months of January to mid-March do that to me. Hoping your day's been better than mine!


  1. agree with all the traits!!

    I hope your week gets better! Mine is sucky too :(

  2. I agree with the traits as well! I considered copying you and doing a similar list [I do love me some lists!], but mine would be identical.

    Also, I'm telling you. That girl and Rachel have to be twins! Today, my best friend who usually plays oboe or marimba was playing piccolo for a parade we have on Saturday [she's super f-ing musical, and I hate her for it. but I digress]. Rachel came up and goes, "Oh, can you play the music? I mean, I don't know how adept you are at piccolo." and then walked away....

    Ooooh, she irritates me.

  3. DEFINITELY agree with those traits. BAH there's this boy who is kind of in my group of friends who just irritates the crap out of me with his "better than you" attitude. Sigh. I guess I am am the one who needs to be more humble. But BAAH!


  4. I think that all these people just need to go off and live somewhere together. Then they can all make snide remarks to each other and no one will care.
