New zodiac sign? Really? January 13, 2011
The earth has been wobbling (the axis shifted slightly) and the stars are no longer aligned. There were some miscalculations and boom. My life has been a lie. Okay, I’m not one of those people that relies on the stars to predict my life for me so I will be prepared but this is still slightly alarming. I am not an Aries? I am a Pisces now? Please stop an and explain. Because I will not let go of my stubbornness. That’s trait that I can give these Zodiac people that the predicted right. What if I was one of those people that got it tattooed on myself? Sigh. Here is the new calendar:
Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
Pisces: March 11– April 18
Aries: April 18 – May 13
Taurus: May 13 – June 21
Gemini: June 21 – July 20
Cancer: July 20 – Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10 – Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16 – Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30 – Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23 – Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 – Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 – Jan. 20
This would have been so much cooler if I was an Ophiuchus now. Instead I got my ram taken away and was handed a fish.
Just for laughs, my father’s thoughts: “WHAT? The day I was born, I was an Aries. I am still an Aries. I don’t like Pisces, they are so pessimistic.” Hmm, maybe this explains why I’ve been so down lately. (I really do not believe this, but it is an interesting coincident.)
I promise that I’m not making this up. Multiple news sources have been reporting on it. TIME: http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/01/13/horoscope-hang-up-earth-rotation-changes-zodiac-signs/
It’s really not a big deal though. Just another thing for people to hype. Like I am right now. Ugh, I feel like I just feel into a mass-media trap.
Edit: This only applies to newborn babies. That would make sense because the reasons this change occurred are recent. I really should make sure I know more about things before I start complaining. Now I just look like an idiot.
A reference from the Christopher Nolan movie Inception that suggests that a person should examine their totem (small personal object) in order to determine whether they are in reality or in delusional dreamland.
Intended to be used sarcastically.D-Bag: “I swear every b**** in that club wanted my D.”
Smugster: Go Check your Totem.
I found this mildly hilarious. Thank you, Urban Dictionary for that source of enjoyment. I must re-watch Inception soon.
I had one of those nights that you just can’t even think about sleep last night. All I wanted to do was get up and go on a long run until my legs fell off. This could be called cabin fever to some extent. I never stepped outside at all yesterday, I decided to knock out some homework instead. I heard my alarm go off that tells me to wake up for school when the streets aren’t icy before I feel asleep. I woke up much earlier than usual too. So I’m sort of running on a nap.
Immediately after waking up I decided to supplement my existing work out routines with something from the Nike Training iPhone app. Loved it (enough though I lack enough balance to do a couple drills). I don’t think I’ve sweat that much in a long time. It felt good.
Then an apple. What what? It’s been too long that I haven’t eaten one of these delectable things. My taste buds sort of went into shock. Apples=love. Too bad my teeth have gotten too sensitive to cold to eat them too often.
I try to keep up with the world and what’s happening. I try not to be just another one of those oblivious teens that is just liven life and doesn’t care about what else is going on. I have the second part down, I care, I’m curious. Even with constantly checking the news and things, I realize that I’m still not completely up to date. Politics, weather, and criminals aren’t life. There are so many things that are always going on that we will never be aware of until they hit the mainstream media. Now that were things get a little hazy. The media shouldn’t rule the information of the world. But the laziness of people has let it do just that.
Today is Lohri, a Hindu/Indian festival. If you asked me now, I couldn’t tell you what it was about. This is a sad statement. I know. It’s even more sad because it is more specific to northern India and the state where my family once lived. I’m thinking that there is a ceremony that involves a bonfire and celebrating winter and lots of food. I shall ask my grandparents in a few minutes. I don’t want to go to the family gathering tonight without some sort of background.
I hear “Fly like a G6” playing somewhere. Unmistakable bass.
The Super Bowl will be coming soon. I really should start settling down on a team. Knowing me, it will be game specific. It almost always is. I wish I LOVED a team, but I don’t. I was fairly impartial during the Auburn-Oregon game this year. I just like Cam Newton and like it when whatever team my cousin is supporting loses. Out of the colleges that I could go to, only one of them has a well recognized team. That college is also my fall-back, go figure. I guess I may just have to get used to losing.
I think its time for some core work, I don’t know what’s gotten into me today. I just want to be tired when I go to sleep tonight.
Think before you speak. January 12, 2011
A common piece of advise to people. I find myself repeating these words in my head constantly. Not even to myself, but in reference to what other people say. I know that I also should take this advise, but more often than not, I don’t have much concern with keeping my thoughts private. I’m fairly brutal when it comes to telling people the truth, but that exactly why what others say bothers me so much. I expect the same level of honesty from everyone. If you don’t like me, then don’t pretend like you do. Or if you do like me, don’t take away the power of truth by speaking those words without meaning them.
Thank you and have a nice evening.
I’m not an Apple groupie. January 10, 2011
But I own an iPhone. I’m enjoying what it can do so far. I primarily use wifi for internet. I didn’t get AT&T’s $25 for 2 gigs of data deal, I went for the cheapest one whatever it was ($15 for 200MB?). Maybe later, but for now I’m just playing with it when I’m bored. The things I like about this phone are things that most all of the phones in it’s class can do.
Lots of people complain about the problems created by having the steel band as the antenna. I’m sure that you’ve seen the “end call” stickers that are available. They point at the bottom left corner where if covered the iPhone looses signal. I haven’t have too much of a problem with it. From what I can see, you actually sort of have to squeeze the phone for a noticeable change. My phone is now in an Otterbox. As much as I loved it bare, I am a clumsy person and can’t even think about how I would feel if I damaged this device. Its worth like what? $800? (I have a 32g.)
I play games while I’m texting. (The texting can get annoying- I love the thread layout, I just hate the lack of information about the messages received, you know like a time stamp? sigh.) I keep up with the news and follow some blogs. I use yoga apps and track workouts. I have become addicted to Doodle Jump, even though I lack skill when it comes to this game. The high scores are filled by my sister and cousin. Skype now has added video chat abilities, and it was use 3G. Facetime hasn’t even come that far yet. The white version isn’t even available yet.
Apple is forever holding out on us. I guess when you are so over-hyped you can do things like that.
It’s a trophy. ;) January 9, 2011
I’m working on a few happy blog posts. The ideas behind each of them die as I begin to write them, so they remain works in progress. When did I become such a scornful person? I don’t really hate good morning texts. I don’t really hate school. I don’t really hate people. I just hate feeling awful.
Winter break was surprisingly interesting, not nearly as mopey as I prepared for it to be. I quit planning everything and just let my friends do the work. I saw some of them quite a few times, others disappeared. It’s something that is going to take some getting used to. People walk in and out of your life all the time, especially during transitional times like these. Replacing them is never an option, learning to leave without them is all you can do.
The last couple weeks have been looking up though. I’ve met some new people, and tried some new things, all of them positive. Just happy times. I’m sure that the college kids went back with some good memories too. I know that one of them went back with a trophy of some sort. We’ll see what comes of it. Next year, I’ll be going with all of them instead of feeling left behind. Change is coming, and I’m not too scared anymore. Whatever happens, happens.
As of now, I’m content. Snow should be coming in soon. I’m thinking about some possible adventures during the spring. Skydiving is one thing that I really want to check off my bucket list this year. I’m looking forward to updating my horrid licence picture.
Summer plans are becoming more definite. College during the summer is a possibility, but unlikely due to the costs. It really depends on my brother, and my father’s plans. There are some ideas being thrown around that would prevent summer college plans all together. Whatever happens, it will be nice.
Another note worthy thing is my tear count has been reset. 0 so far for 2011. I did fairly well last year until some rough times hit.
I really just want to hear some Cello music right now. I want to dance. I want to just enjoy what I have.
The snow should start soon, I’ve been writing this post for hours, just a couple sentences at a time.
