Summer Blues

It is officially one month into summer. I haven't left my house or worn makeup for two days, I totally forgot to eat food all day, and I am totally, incredibly...bored. So bored, in fact, that I ask myself almost hourly why I don't get out. I mean, I have a car. I have friends that would hang out. I don't know, I just haven't felt like doing anything.

To occupy myself, I learned how to write "Geronimo!" in Gallifreyan. I also decided that if I ever get a tattoo, that is the one I'm going to get. My best friend and I might just get matching ones, only hers will say "Allons-y!" since the tenth Doctor is her favorite. And here is my terrible attempt at drawing it on my computer:

My thoughts are occupied by jobs/job applications (because I am in desperate need of work), Doctor Who, and reading my book for WJMC. I need something to do and I need it quick. I'm getting stir crazy.

However, lucky for me a new restaurant is opening up in town (which is HUGE because we only have like seven restaurants) and I've known the manager since I was little, so hopefully (HOPEFULLY) I can get a job there. Cross your fingers.

I finished an entire chapter today in my book. Two people down, four to go. And because of this achievement, I rewarded myself with a Doctor Who episode. Just one though, because the new series comes out in two months and I'm trying to savor my last few episodes with Matt.

And now that we are on the topic of Matt, I bought this gem last night.

I think it's going to get here just in time for WJMC. I can show my love for Matt on my trip. YES.

(If you're interested in the other cases she has to offer, go check out fancase on Etsy.)

There's Benedict ones, and Sherlock ones, and Hannibal ones, and GoT ones, etc. It's pretty awesome.

Well that's it for me tonight. I'm trying to go to sleep earlier than 4 AM since WJMC is right around the corner. Until next time.

Math, Doctor Who, and a Twitter Rant

Hello, hello! It's another day closer to WJMC!

We got sorted into color groups yesterday, and I am especially excited because my advisor is a Cubs fan. I am a Cardinals fan. Now if you're not familiar with the world of baseball, let me explain: the Cubs are in Chicago. The Cardinals are in St. Louis. So they are kind of neighbors. As most sports fans know, neighbors are the mortal enemy. Now, you may be saying "Why are you so excited if he's a fan of the 'bad guys?'" Because well....*ahem* the Cards are better. Not being bias, just pointing out the facts. So I'm pretty excited to have a discussion over baseball with this guy. (P.S. I'm sorry if you're a Cubs fan, really I am. Please don't hate me.)

So that required book I wrote about a couple posts ago..? I've barely read any of it. I wanted to see how far I was so I did some math. There are 217 pages total in the book. I'm on page 38. So I took 38/217...

And I learned that I am only 17.5% finished with my book...yay? This is going to be a while...

Then I figured how many pages I'll have to read each day leading up until the conference (16 days)...

Eleven pages a day? Eleven? Uggggghhhhhhhhh.... (Or 11.2 if you want to be a little more exact, but how in the world would you read '.2' pages?)

There you go, now you don't have to go to math lesson today, because you just got one! You're welcome.

If you've read the majority of my blog, you know that I love Doctor Who (and Sherlock but Hot Topic has very little Sherlock merchandise). And I thought I would show you the great stuff I bought yesterday.

They're perfect! I am so excited. I bought the lanyard so I can wear my press pass in style at WJMC. I bought the phone case because....why not, it's the TARDIS!

I got on Twitter on my computer for the first time in forever today and this is what I saw:

Twitter what are you doing? Why do you look like Facebook? I don't like Facebook. This isn't cool. You cut Matt's face off. Not cool either. You shouldn't do that to someone as beautiful as him. It's not fair. Why, Twitter, why?

This whole post is me talking/ranting about random stuff. Sorry (but I'm really not..).

Okay, I'm going to end this here because this is getting really long. I hope you enjoyed your math lesson, looking at my Doctor Who stuff, and reading my rant about Twitter's apparent new layout. Have a great day (or not the choice is yours..honestly you'll only get that joke if you went to my middle school).

I'm going to go read my eleven pages now..

Late Night (Early Morning?) Update

It's five. Freaking. In. The. Morning. So why not write this lovely little post! I have yet to go to sleep and my mind is running, so I guess I should write some stuff.

Honestly, my one and only reason for this post is so I can show off the book my dad got me.

Keep in mind it's five in the morning so clearly I do not look my best. Seriously though, the inside is a beautiful treasure chest of helpful tips (I don't even know where 'treasure chest' came from. I'm tired, okay?)

It's amaaaaaaaazing.

I also bought this little guy (aka Raj, after Jasmine's tiger from Aladdin) to help save the tigers. It was only ten dollars, but every little bit helps!

Alrightly then, I suppose I should go get some shut eye because I have to wake up at ten and at this rate, I'm only going to get five hours of sleep.

Adjö (Swedish goodbye in honor of PewDiePie, my current YouTuber obsession) everyone!

Updates & Whatnot

Well WJMC is in less than a month. Where has the time gone?

I finally finally found the reading list and I just bought one of the two non-political (because I dislike politics) books yesterday.

I'm only on page eighteen and it's pretty meh but at least it's not terrible (I really don't like non-fiction books..). My dad made me a deal that as soon as I finish this book, he'll buy me The Game of Thrones so I have a goal to aim for.

In other news, my dad's fiancé is getting me a kitten and we decided to name her Hazel. Which means I'll probably be calling her Hazel Grace a lot because TFIOS is my favorite.

Speaking of TFIOS, that movie was perfection. And you're thinking about going to see the movie, but you haven't read the book yet, READ THE BOOK FIRST OR WE CANNOT BE FRIENDS. That is all.

I took a picture of the Gateway Arch Monday.

That's the only photo I took because I started feeling really sick and I had to go back to the hotel to rest before the STL Cardinals game that night. Which, I might add, THEY WON. Because St. Louis is the best.

Also, I'm currently watching a lot of That 70's Show because it's really the only American show I actually enjoy.

So yeah, my life is currently not that interesting, but I'm going on "vacation" to Branson next week for the 16th year in a row (P.S. That's my age. My mom's side of the family doesn't travel too far). And I'm trying to get a job because I would like money of my own so I can stop asking my parents.

Until next time, people of the internet.

Julius Caesar

This is an extremely short post because I'm out of school now and I have absolutely nothing going on.

In my last post, I mentioned our Julius Caesar project. Well, it's DONE and my English teacher straight up admitted that it was his favorite ever, so there's that.

Wanna watch it?

Julius Caesar: What Really Happened

And what the heck, I'll include our bloopers too.
