Oi mother... friggin' vey.

This is what I've looked like all afternoon. Why?
I had my speech today. Not so horrible, I've done speeches before.
But, this time was different. Apparently god took a 10 minute potty break right when I went up to speak.
My videos, my ONLY visuals, WOULDN'T PLAY. I tested them 50,000 times at home, I get up there prepared and already halfway into my speech and BAM, the damn things will not start.
So I'm standing there like an idiot, clicking the video about 50 times and then going "Okay, guess that won't work." So I had to work around it. I'm not good at improv.
THEN I could NOT remember the symptom "anaphylactic shock"
Here's me:
Some people have experienced temporary paralysis and uh... um... uhhhh... um... crap... ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK. THAT'S IT. *grins like someone that just spied on someone naked*
The stupid video debacle got me all kinds of flustered. The good news? Talked to my teacher afterward, and she isn't going to dock me much for them. She says her computer is an old piece of crap, and it's possible my version of powerpoint wasn't compatible with hers.
Still, I looked like an idiot in front of the class. But, I stayed RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of the time limits. The speech was required to be 8-10 minutes. I was at exactly 9:01. Score.

I took my math test today, too. Let me tell you, I'm pretty sure I aced it. Once I went up to the teacher and said "How do I do this again?" (It was just some stupid letter I couldn't remember.) Once I got it, the test was a breeze.
Lemme give you some examples for a brain funny fun funnerton. I should make this interesting. Anyone that correctly answers gets their blog banner at the top of my sidebar for a week? xD I don't get enough traffic for that to be any kind of incentive.
Anyway:
Let f(x) = -3x + 4 and g(x) = -x^2 + 4x + 1. Find the following:
13. f(-3)
14. g(10)
15. f(x - 2)

Wee, brain workout time.
My world lit teacher was absent today. Thank goodness for my friend Haylee. She's been putting off working on our final paper, and it was actually pretty funny. I met her downstairs of our building and we start talking, and she goes "I think I might start working on that final tonight." and I go "You realize that was due today, right?"
She about had a heart-attack. I had mine done weeks ago. Why? Because I'm a go-getter. Plus I can't freaking stand putting anything off. It stays on my brain forever.
But guess what? After I turn in all this shnizzle cheeze-whizzle... I'M DONE FOR THE SEMESTER. HALLELUJAH. And since I did my speech first, my teacher's all happy with me and the other 3 that went today. WE'RE BRAVE, WE AIN'T AFRAID. NO WAY.

I was terrified. But I wore my blue pumps and was ready to pump it into over-drive. Or like my friend Melora said to the class right before she spoke "As you can see I wore contrasting power colors in order to create a visual dynamic."
God that made me laugh so hard on the inside. It sounded so amazingly cheesy. So I got "Yeah, well I wore my power shoes. Because they're blue and awesome."
My comebacks happen to be amazing.

I think I might be turning emo. I'm sitting in my room with the lights off listening to Evanesence curled up typing on my computer like a shut-in. How lame am I? And my finger and toenails are black, as you can see in forementioned picture.
I'm slowly getting over my breakup. It's a long, very annoying process. But eh, whatdya gonna do? Teenagers tend to hang onto things way longer than necessary. I was talking to him and he made a joke about parenting being harmful and I said "I'm going to tell your kids you said that!" and he goes "Well sure, I can totally see you 10 years from now telling them that." and I go "10 years from now? Kids so soon? I don't know if I'll be okay with that by then!"
I'll probably have kids of my own at that point, but I'll still screw with him about it just because I can. "I... I don't think I'm okay with this. We've only been separated for 10 years. Are you sure that's enough time for us to "heal"?"
Oh the drama females can cause when they really, truly feel like it.
Anyway, speech was craptastic but the teacher seemed emotive during it.
My mom won't get me the Xbox 360 I want because I have a playstation.
I never even use it anymore. I want to trade it in.
Parents pulling the "I'm the parent" card during stuff like that makes me want to take some scissors and remove the rest of their cards.

Hope your day was better than mine, and if you ever need someone to give a speech about the HPV vaccine... don't ask me.
No, I'm serious. Don't ask me.

Sorry that you had so much drama during the speech. But I am glad that you got it done and don't have to worry about it anymore. I always hated doing those things in school. I don't miss it at all.

Awww...sorry your speech didn't go as planned...but I'm sure you will get a good grade. Sounds like the teacher was understanding...as it wasn't your fault.

The way you write cracks me up. I laugh at the way you word your frustration...sorry...my bad! hehe

I'm nervous even reading you say the word speech. I'm sure it was better than you thought!

Seeing that math problem made me miss Algebra, yeah yeah I am twisted, but it sure was a good brain occupier, I so could use that right now

At least you didn't throw up infront of everyone like I would have done. Awesomeness. Send me some power shoes. I need em.

Walter said...

Was I the only one interested in the math?
a)13
b)-59
c)-3x+10

Sucks about the presentation. I've learned that if you have a laptop, always TAKE IT WITH YOU. 'tis always a lifesaver.
