I wasn't paying attention.

Today was odd. Very odd. First off in Debate class the teacher said that I didn't have to practice extemp. speaking, and instead she made me help the others write their speeches. I was dumbfounded, because 1, stuff like this usually doesn't happen, in fact it NEVER happens, and 2 because she didn't ask Miranda first, who of course has seniority over me.

I think it made Miranda a bit mad... I don't know, but she protested saying that she shouldn't have to do it either, so the teacher let her file news articles instead, which I must admit is a sucky job.

Oh well. It's not my fault that I play politics in class. I mean, I come in early, and try my best to prove that I'm at the top of the novice rank, which in turn makes me look really good.  Also, I'm learning that there is  a difference between being humble, and just plain shy (I'm currently trying my best to show that I am getting over my shyness).  And if someone compliments me, I thank them, and go on to say, "It took a lot of hard work to get where I am, so that really means a lot."  instead of saying, "Oh, well thanks I guess...." and just stand there, which I used to do a lot.

I participate in class, and do my best to show that I am capable and confident, and also that I can handle responsibility, no matter how big or small.

Right now I'm so conflicted. I mean, I don't want to come off as mean, but I will not slow down, or stunt any chances of success that may come along. If a beneficial opportunity comes up for me, believe that I'm going to take it.


PHEW. I'm glad that I got that off my chest. In other news today I was bitten.

And no ladies, not by a vampire, or some imaginary disease, but I was literally bitten by my friend Asstin on my upper arm.

And very hard too. It hurt like the Dickens, and I was just like, "Dude. WTF?"

and he was like, "You weren't paying attention, so I gave you a love bite."

At the time, I was doing a lab in Biology, and at times I kind of zone out into my own 'work' world, but seriously! He could have just thrown a pencil at me. I swear, it would have been just as efficient.


  1. yeah. i'm shy too. i had to literally learn how to handle myself more assertively.
    and i'm sorry about the bite; but hey, it worked :) your friend must be a character!

  2. taking compliments is always difficult for me :/
    also giving them feels awkward for me... I've gotta work on that...

    haha, biting does occasionally work for attention gaining :P

  3. You go girl! You deserve all the attention you receive! :D You sound like you work REALLY hard at it!! Don't do worse for nothin'!

    I'm like, major shy... So when people compliment me, I'm like "Um, thank you..." or "Not really, but thanks anyway..." Preeeeetty awkward lol I'm just like that :P

    Love bite?? LOL

  4. I think it's awkward when someone compliments me, I'm just like, "Uh, thanks? But not really..." I have to work on that too... Haha, biting somebody is a surefire way to get someone's attention!
