Is anyone else scared that if they keep their laptop on their lap that the radiation will kill their eggs and they won’t ever be able to have babies. Not that it keeps me awake at night. My laptop sits far away.
hfsjahfjaksgf. I’m starting over my second statement. Its fluff and bs. I don’t know what to write they say make it personal but what does that mean. How do I cram personal into 350 words? I could write about my grandpa and start crying but that feels so sappy and I honesty don’t know how much it impacted me. I have little topic sentences but they are all to ehhh. I’m not clever, I feel like a moron for waiting this long.
I was really excited to go this year. It was going to be a group of girls, but they have boyfriends and that’s fine so we can at least have a leadership group. Nothing would make me happier than spending the night with the people I love most. I didn’t fit in the group I went with last year and I wanted to enjoy my Senior Year one. Then something happened and the entire group was broken up. The dates wouldn’t enjoy it or something. I don’t know. I don’t know what I’m doing. I just want to go with my friends.
And congratulations to Jane for being in such high demand.
Had to end 45 minutes early because a kid pooped in the pool
sanitized the pool. Watched them dump 8 gallons of chlorine in. 8 gallons. I know you are supposed to shock the water but that’s a lot.
Took a shower because my skin hurt. You have to spend a considerable amount of time in chlorinated water to really know what it feels like to have your skin hurt. Its not like a sunburn or a scratch, it just hurts and itches. Lotion helps.
Worked on personal statements. I’m so ashamed.
Got a book from my Grandpa, “Eats(,) Shoots & Leaves”. Its a book about grammar and the meanings that come from commas. I need to read it and talk to him about how I can use a semi colon.
Babysat. I got turned into a princess, then a fairy, then I got to shoot them with Nerf guns so that was fun. The boy is seven and his bedtime stories are about serious chemistry and physics. I read reading to him about how light refracts and lenses. I wish I had those books when I was learning.
Spent time with family. Ate a little more than usual. Watched New Moon.
It really was a good day. Talked to relatives and heard stories. They stalked a lot about politics. I have opinions but sometimes I don’t have thorough reason and if I say something one of my uncles will probably say something snappy. I played poker. Gambled away my college fund. The first round I was holding 4 aces. Had some pie. And turkey. I don’t know. I’m not a big eater. Then it was talking and stuff. Then people left and my cousin walked home because the other cousin left early and took the car keys and left without anybody noticing. And then I watched twilight. I identify with Kristen Stewart. My face doesn’t change either.
Went back to work for a “staff meeting”. They handed out a giant packet and a little less than 3 hours in and we weren’t half way through. They kept going over the same thing and side stories and things that everyone already knew. I had to leave for TSO and I wasn’t missing it because I needed to know the time card policies.
It was still really awkward walking out in the middle.
I don’t want to call this a rant, because I’m not really angry, but a little overwhelmed. In a little over 2 weeks I spent around 24.5 hours in the pool. Thats just in the water. I work in about 3 hour increments and then a little over because tarping or changing the lane lines. The drive is about 20 minutes each way. I get there about 10 minutes early and I leave around 15 after. Thats about an hour I spend not working, but still part of my day. In the past 2 weeks, thats an extra 8 hours. And then I have to shower right when I get home to wash the chlorine out. I know I’d shower anyway but still. I was just in the water. Its tiring. I come home tired and hungry and am in no frame of mind to do anything. Yeah I know other kids are more busy and have fuller bigger and better schedules and lots of homework but this is me and this is what my time goes in to.
