My Birthday 30 March 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Aly @ 8:53 pm

I turned sixteen today! Yay! :D

Today, as I was stepping outside to check the mail, the brilliancy of the day surprised me. This past week was very rainy (which is not something with which I have a problem), but it was nice to have a change. In fact, it was almost shocking to walk outside and see the brightness, the colors, the crispness. This time of year, it is not at all hot; it is quite pleasant, in fact.

Oddly enough, all these pleasant and cheering sights and sounds triggered a very different thought in my mind. For some reason, I wondered to myself, what if I died?

Have You Noticed? 29 March 2009

I do not blog a lot. You have probably noticed.

I feel really bad for not blogging enough. I cannot even use homework as an excuse . . . I spend insane amounts of time on the computer not doing work. I just never know about what I should write. I start to write something, then think its boring or silly, or forget to finish it. I end up with a whole bunch of drafts and little inclination to finish them.

I think it is patently obvious that I need to write more, so you guys need to help me out with things about which to write! Because then, I will write, you will read, and we will all be happy! Yay!

 

Starcraft Is Sexy 15 March 2009

It is also very serious business. That is right. Starcraft is serious business. Unlike the economy.

The FCAT today was a fairly enjoyable experience. And yes, you and I are thinking of the same “FCAT”: Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (but now that we all know what we are talking about, I think I will stick with “FCAT” for short).

As a sophomore, I had to take the reading portion of the FCAT today. Tomorrow is the math portion. The reason I liked the FCAT was that it was so nostalgic. This is the last time I will ever have to take the reading and math FCAT (unless I failed them . . . ;)). It was amazing how many memories of FCAT have built up in my mind over the years. (more…)

 

Twitter 4 March 2009

I am addicted to Twitter. I joined two weeks ago, and already have 105 Tweets. I do not think that is a good thing. But it is pretty fun, and I have gotten a bunch of my friends to sign up (peer pressure–it works!).

As a lark, I decided to compose an “Ode to Yogurt” (in pseudo-Shakespearean English, no less) on Twitter and I would like to repost and possibly improve on it here.

Temporal Thoughts (and More!)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Aly @ 1:31 am

It is kind of insane for me to think that this is already MARCH. In two months and some change, I will be taking AP exams. :O It seems as if just a little while ago, it was January and school ending was still half a year away. It is really scary how fast time passes.

Optimistically, I will be dead by my eightieth birthday. Pessimistically, this could happen a lot sooner. But considering that I will be turning sixteen this month, that means that my life is 20% complete. It is really, really scary (especially when I think about all I want to do and how much time I will have to accomplish it). Even considering that I do not recall the first few years of my life, it is just so hard for me to grasp that I have been here for sixteen whole years! Time is so mind-boggling.
