Kitten Monday #5

I have just realised something absolutely horrifying. A prospect so horrible it makes me ill just considering it.

...What if I run out of kitten pictures?

I think I might cry.




I keep dreaming. I wouldn't say they're scary dreams, not conventionally at least, but there's always this wrongness about them, like things aren't the way they're supposed to be. I was dreaming about being at school and my classmates and teachers looked more like living dolls than people. Just little things like that. I'm not sure what to make of it.

I keep getting the feeling I have a right to be paranoid.

Ciao for now,

Vlog Entry #1



I'm probably just being stupid, but that this has happened right now and in the way that it has makes me more paranoid than I have a right to be. I know I'm just being stupid but I still have this uneasiness niggling at the back of my mind. Hopefully I'll stop freaking out over creepypasta soon, because it's just plain embarassing.

it's just a dream, right? i'm just dreaming.

Kitten Monday #4

it keeps happening!





Enjoy your kittens, peeps.

I haven't been sleeping too well lately. I think I've been reading too much creepypasta, because I'm kinda paranoid about going to sleep. I finally got to see the first episode of season 6 of Doctor Who, and those alien things really freaked the hell out of me. I mean, an enemy that you forget as soon as you look away? Paranoia fuel incarnate. It kinda reminded me of this massive set of creepypasta blogs I found on TVTropes last year sometime. I wonder if the writers had seen them? 

Meh. i guess I'll just go to sleep early tomorrow, try and catch up on what I've lost. I need the energy. Ciao for now!

Dreams

At lunch yesterday, a bunch of my friends started talking about their dreams. It was a pretty interesting discussion, actually, although I had nothing to contribute since I haven't dreamed, that I can recall since I was young. Younger. 

...Well, that was a totally random tidbit of information.

We're studying slasher films in media, which is a new thing for me since I'd never seen a slasher film before. Funnily enough, I was the least scared person in that entire classroom. Too much TVTropes, probably. The thing is with slasher and horror films, the more I have to suspend my disbelief the less scary it is. So, say, "Nightmare On Elm Street" wasn't that scary. Scream was the only one of the three films we watched so far that I was even mildly scared by. Seriously...

Oh well...break is over. Off to class with me. Ciao for now!

Kitten Monday #3

It's that time of week again. JEGUS, IT JUST KEEPS HAPPENING :D






I'm in a pretty good mood today. I got my classics project back and I got a good mark. Same for my drama project. And we're doing some damn cool stuff in general. Pretty much everyone is tired, though. We had the school musical last week, and it's three weeks in to the new term so we can all expect to be slammed with a bazillion and four assignments, all worth credits. Some of them will have a resubmission opportunity, but better to get it right on the first try. 

My friend Penelope says I worry too much. She's probably right, but it's easier for her, ditzy genius that she is. Penelope's super smart, but she lacks common sense and she can be a bit dopey. I love her anyway. She's been my best friend since the first day of my first year of middle school, and she's pretty damn awesome. I have pretty damn awesome friends in general. I'm really lucky to have them.

Well, lunchtime is over, so I'm off to class. Ciao for now.

Gahhhhh...

Sorry I haven't updated all week, invisible readers. I've been really tired. I'm really busy with school and extracurricular activities, and I've been sleeping pretty badly ever since the school year started in February. Not horribly, but not very well. To top that off my teachers have decided now is the time to dump a crapload of assignments on me, and I'm in the school musical which we've been performing every night since Tuesday. We have two performances today, an afternoon one and a night one. Then it's all over, and if I didn't have three essays to write before Tuesday morning I would sleep all of Sunday.

On an unrelated note, my cat has decided one of the shelves in my wardrobe is his new hidey hole. Which is cute, but I have to check if he's there before I shut the cupboard door at night (which I always do. The residue of an intense childhood fear there might be monsters in there.) otherwise he scratches at the door when he wants to get out and scares the ever-lovin' fuck out of me.

My glasses (yes, the one's I'm wearing in the my profile picture) have broken. It's fixable, one of the screws just fell apart, but for now I'm wearing contacts, which despite my most valiant efforts, I have never been able to get used to. Sigh. They're gonna be fixed by Monday, thank god, since I've been without them for five days now and I keep reflexively reaching up to adjust them and they aren't there.

Besides all that, life's pretty good. See you all in two days for Kitten Monday, I guess.

Ciao for now,
Ariadne

School

I'm not sure if I love it or hate it.

See, I get to learn stuff and see most of my friends and it's fun in it's own way but about half my year are complete idiots. I don't enjoy one of my favourite subjects, Drama, half as much as I probably should because my classmates are not very bright and they're not very fun to work with because you have to spell things out for them.

I get...average grades, I guess (I average at a Merit. Grades over here go Not Achieved (fail) Achieved (pass) Merit (good pass) and Excellence (very good pass)) so I'm not the brightest crayon in the box but some of these girls make me look like a genius. Thankfully, I don't have to have much to do with any of them outside the classroom and some of the really stupid ones will probably drop out at the end of this year.

Sigh. I say this and yet I am writing this in class. Study, but nonetheless I could probably be doing something more constructive.

Ciao for now,
Ariadne.

Dramatis Personae

of a story with a cast of one.

Hi, I guess. I'm Ariadne. Another high school kid bitching about their life on the internet. You know how it goes. I write, so I might post a bit of that here and there. I might talk about my family, or my interests, or whatever. This blog? Probably going to be one long ramble about stuff I think about. My classmates (Roughly 70% idiots, 25% okay, 5% my friends.), books, music, cute things, school, the internet.

School starts up again tomorrow. I'm not sure whether to look forward to it, or dread it, as usual. On the one hand, I get to see a sizeable percentage of my friends every day there, and I enjoy learning. But on the other, it's a Christian, all-girls private school. I have to go to chapel about twice a week (I'm an atheist ._.) and my classmates make me want to bash my head against a wall because some of them are ridiculously stupid. Oh well. In a year and a half I will be out of there and going to university and I will never have to see some of them again.

Enough bitching. I'm going over to a friends place today, so ciao for now.
