Please let that be the end of the four-chord song.

So.  Last day of school today.

Everything that can be said about our grade and us becoming seniors next year have all been stated on others’ blogs (go see our blogroll).  All in all, you’ve been an awesome grade.

I’m not really sure I want the holidays anymore. 

For the past week, Mum has been making me do chores instead of my usual gaming/anime/manga time.  I have a responsibility to contribute to housework, etc. but the amount of chores seems to be increasing and increasing.  And she yells at me for not asking whether she needs any help.  I know myself well enough to know that I’m not going to ask to do more housework over going on the computer or playing fruit ninja. 

Another thing is that I won’t be able to see you all.  I ask to go see Tron, and she tells me off for ‘going out/playing all the time’.  The last time I went out with friends was last holidays.  I am quite possibly the most antisocial and reclusive person in my grade.  Shouldn’t my parents be encouraging me to go out there and socialise and hang out with friends?

Oh.  I forgot.  I need to stay home and babysit my siblings.  For some reason Mum is working more, so less chance of me getting to go anywhere (Dad works all the time anyway).  So no beach trip for me.  :(  Trust me, I definitely want to go.  I don’t particularly enjoy being at home all the time.

And the worst thing about this is that there is no one to blame.  I can’t blame myself (although my more-than-slightly disappointing report may have influence…), I can’t blame my siblings and I can’t blame my parents because Mum doesn’t choose her schedule.

So I’m going to be pretty lonely this holidays.  And pissed off.

That’s enough angst and teenage whining to fill up my year’s quota.  Have a survey (stolen off Carmen’s blog).

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
I don’t think much in the mornings. 

2. How much cash do you have on you?
A couple of dollars.

3. What’s a word that rhymes with “DOOR?”

Maybe some faraway one that’s yet to be discovered.  Although paraphrasing Carmen, Earth’s pretty cool.

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
Don’t have a fourth person.

6. What is your favorite ring on your phone?
My phone is pretty much unused, so no idea.  I’m not sure what my current (default) ringtone is.  I think it’s a ringing sound.

7. What shirt are you wearing?
A pyjama dress.

8. Do you “label” yourself?
Yeah.  Ends up being self-deprecating humour most of the time.

What shoes?

10. Bright or Dark Room?
I’m taking this to mean my bedroom when I’m sleeping.  Dark.

None, but there’s some random rolls in the key drawer which haven’t seen the light of day.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?

Life’s been pretty good so far, but I miss being young and carefree.  Five or six?

My mind. – Yeah what Carmen said.

23. What is your current desktop picture?

A picture of the main and supporting characters in Slamdunk in chibi form.

Ability to fly.  I can always earn myself a million bucks xD

26. Do you like someone?

Can’t remember.

I think it was one or two years ago when I was doing a Rural Youth kindy farm tour and a sweet girl gave me a handful of picked clover.

Let me check what sanctity means.

Holiness, eh?  Well whatever your religion has to say about it.  I care more about the legal definition.

Some build-from-scratch-and-race-the-result show that my sister is watching for some reason.

If you do it right.

54. Last time you saw fireworks?

I don’t think of them much, it was just a primary school crush.

71. What about the one before that?

72. Have you ever been rejected by a crush?
Well crushes are crushes for a reason.  I was going to make a pun here but never mind.

Nope.  It doesn’t really cross your mind to confess your feelings when you’re still a preteen.

73. Have you ever made a prank phone call?

74. What’s your favourite childhood memory?
I dunno.  I don’t really reminisce all that much.  If I still count this as my childhood, I’d say this year’s Gold Coast trip.   

75. Is there anything that you have done that you regret?
Small things, yes. 

76. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Even the answer ‘an adult’ seems clichéd here.  I have no idea, and that’s what’s scaring me.

This guy in Year 2. 

80. Who do you have a crush on?
Nobody, because I’m too old for that xD

I think I’m agnostic or something.  I’m too lazy to argue about the presence of God or not, and I like those principles by which Buddhists go by.

82. What does your screen name mean?
Weeellll…it’s something made up by Carmen.  But apparently it’s a slang term for two things which are not suitable for a public blog like this.

83. What person do you trust the most?
Other than family, I’d say Victor.

84. What is the longest crush/relationship you have had?
I think it’s been almost nine months.

What a dodgy amount of time >.>

Um probably my bluntness.  Which is also a double edged sword.

My lack of conversational skills and extreme self-consciousness.

87. What is your first thought when waking up in the morning?
‘I just opened my eyes.’

88. What is your first thought before you go to bed?
Gaming time!

89. Do you get along with your family?
Not that well, because I’m a really prickly person.  I’m sorry.

90. Do you think you’re attractive?
No, because I’m taking attractive to mean ‘drawing attention – lookswise, charisma, etc.’.

91. Would you ever get a tattoo?
Nah, I’m too indecisive for that.

92. How many piercings do you have?

93. Who makes you laugh?
My siblings, my friends, anybody really.

94. If you could change anything about yourself, what would you change?
A stronger sense of drive to achieve things.

95. Would you ever lie to someone to make them feel good about themselves?
Depends. If there is a need, yes.

96. What do you want your friends to think about you?
I’ll leave that up to them to decide.

97. Whats the biggest argument you’ve ever gotten into?
I dunno…I like mindless and trivial arguments better.

6th April.

103. Have you ever been in love?
Does the present count?

104. Are you a morning person or a night person?
Neither, but more night than morning.

105. Have you ever been to the hospital (other then birth?)
Yes, for asthma attacks when I was five or something and when I broke my collarbone, got a plate and had to come back for checkups and to remove it.

106. Do any medical problems run in your family?
Not that I know of.  Low blood pressure?

Again, not that I know of.  Sounds interesting.

108. Have you ever had a nightmare?
Of course.

109. Do you say meaner things to your friends or your enemies?
Probably to my friends, but they know I don’t mean it…right?  Also, I don’t really have an enemy. 

110. Have you ever laughed so hard you peed in your pants?

111. Have you ever written a love letter?

112. Have you ever attempted suicide?

113. Do you prefer boxers or briefs?

I don’t really get sad, and no one around is usually able to cheer me up then.

121. Who do you talk to most on the phone?
I don’t talk to people on the phone… my parents?!

Same here.

122. Do you have a secret that you’re ashamed of?
Not really, but maybe embarrassing things I’ve done as a kid or something.

123. Do you prefer British or American spelling of words?

124. Have you ever gotten detention?
Yes, but it was never the ones where you have to sit in your seat and do homework/nothing for an hour.

125. How do you vent your anger?
Rage, blog it or let it dissipate.

126. Have you ever been on a diet?
Yes.  A diet is what you eat.

127. Would you ever date someone younger than you? Older than you?
Not older or younger by too much.

Ditto.  But you never know.

128. What’s a rumor someone has spread about you?
Those rumours about me liking someone or someone liking me…nothing serious.

Apart from what my parents do, I can’t think of anything off the top of my head.

136. Would you ever tell the person you have a crush on that you like them?
If I had strong feelings for them, not just a crush, maybe.

137. Have you ever had a crush on an enemy?
I don’t have enemies.  Not real ones anyway xD

138. Have you ever had a crush on a best friend?

139. Are you happy with the person you are becoming?
What, this indifferent, twisted, cynical individual?  No.

140. Are you a different person now then you were 5 years ago?
Cell-wise, mostly.  Personality-wise, yes.

141. What do you see yourself as being in 5 years from now?
No idea

142. Are you happy with the life you have?
We get forcefed that stuff about us being extremely lucky with adequate nutrition, water, shelter and sanitation and being in the top school in the state…but I’m happy.
