Oh my Oreo bits! I am soooo
embarassed. I just had a total #Fail
For me to be so computer savvy, I am a complete idiot sometimes. I tried to PM ONE
person and ended up PM'ing all of the Mods somehow. I hope they don't hate me for too long.
Anyway, how is everyone today? I got home and saw I had TWO pages to sift through! I love when everyone has a chance to drop in. I got a lot of reading done today in school. I didn't take my laptop today so I wasn't distracted too easily. I forgot my ear plugs though! How is the library loud? People weren't exactly yelling at the tops of their lungs loud, but jeez! I had a quiz in Biology and now I have an exam Thursday. A plus to that is my teacher told us the Lab class for Friday's been canceled! (Yes, I like class cancelations
I got a little bit of extra work done in my Data Processing class. I was supposed to start my diet today, but, I think I blew it. I didn't do very well. To start, I walked out of the house and forgot to take my salad. So I went with nothing to eat the entire day but a bag of popcorn I had to pop (I always keep popcorn in my bag for some reason, and yes, I ate the enitre bag
). So by the time I got home, I was S-T-A-R-V-I-N-G
! Now my mom is baking brownies...... they smell so good. But, a good thing is that I haven't sipped an ounce of anything but water! I've gotten my 8+ cups. I've even gave up my beloved Pepsi/A&W I think maybe tomorrow I'll get off of the bus a few block early. Get some walking in because I don't have a treadmill. I've gathered some YouTube exercise videos and set Saturday mornings (well afternoons, I don't like early weekend rising
) aside to get some working out in. Does anyone know good substitutes for pastas and rice? I survive on macaroni and cheese. That is my go-to meal maybe 3 or 4 times a week. I'm serious, the lunch lady in 5th grade used to call me "Mac Mac"!
Second, I'd like to thank everyone
who gave their thoughts and opinions on my presentation topic. I read everybodys 2 cents and again, thank you very much. I was surprised that a lot of you guys had some of the same reasonings that I did. I thought most adults would say no.
My groups chose to say yes that we DO think the legal age limit should be lowered. I didn't say at first and give our reasons why because I wanted to see what some adults thought. I agree with those who said maybe 19 would be a more ideal age, but, my question to YOU would be - Should the right for 18 year olds to vote, purchase tobacco, and be legally married be bumped up to 19 too? Now, let's all pray my group members actually put in their part of the work and we get a good grade!On to my replies:Susie
(& others who commented
): The Army thing was my major reason for agreeing that the legal drinking age should be lowered. How can someone you've released into modern day society be told that he/she is an adult, is eligible to vote for a potential leader of the country they reside in, can be tried in court as adults, and not expect them to legally want a glass of champagne to celebrate a marraige that you've told them they are indeed mature enough to be in? I see most people's major reason for not lowering it is drunk-driving. As far as I'm concerned, the US can't even count on legal ADULTS
to drive responsibly. It's true that it all depends on the maturity of the individual. But again, some adults aren't even mature enough to own baseball bats. I'll be honest, I am still under the age of 21 and I've consumed alcoholic beverages both under parental supervision and alone with friends. I've personally never gone "outside
" in a drunken stupor and clowned like a caged buffoon. But I've seen it happen with underaged teens. In my eyes, the most if it is doing just beacuse someone has said you can't. I'm not saying I think alcohol should be "normalized
" so that "drinking-to-get-drunk
" can become an everyday thing. I'm saying that lowering the legal age limit and actually taking the time to show teens how to consume alcohol in an acceptable
manner would be so much better than just hiking up the age limit like it's a forbidden cookie jar and then pointing fingers at a good parent like my mom who has actually taught me how to at least pretend like I have a bit of sense (I do have sense, it's just an exaggeration
;) ). Another honest moment, my father is an alcoholic, he's been one for years. It's sad sometimes. I was actually in danger myself a while ago of becomming an underage alcoholic (long story, I was in a dark place then. I'm a bit better. I'd share if everyone would like me to
.). But, I'm learning from his mistakes and my own to make sure I always know when enough is enough. I've read The Hunger Games trilogy. I enjoyed it very much! I don't really like the epilogue at the end of Mockingjay but it satisfied me. The story itself was very well thought out to me. I think it flowed well and the excitement never died.
Sorry about the rant. I just feel a bit strong about this.Christina
: Yea, I kinda figured I wouldn't burn many calories breathing and stretching, it was a nice thought though!
Today was my first step in cutting out sodas and juices. I haven't taken a sip of anything but water! Thank you for the help! I appreciate everything.JennJenn
: That video was hilarious! She knew exactly what it meant.Tracy
: Thank you! I can never get pictures to actually look the way things look in reality. Someone told me it was my bedroom light. Either way, I love my nail color! It came out better than expected. I'll be trying this again. I actually just wanted to paint my tips but my brother decided to use all of my tape! MissP
roses?! nice! sounds like you're enjoying his company more and more.Marielle
: Before I respond, I don't know why but I always want to spell your name like Marriellia
. I have no idea why. I always have to retype it
That grin has permission to stay plastered onto your face! What do you mean by low alcohol drinks and all alcohol drinks? Are certain drinks more acceptible than others? I don't think I mentioned above but I believe in certain states, teens that are 18 and above can consume alcohol under legal/parental supervision.Raine
: Hey there! Oh no, no cell connection? I'd die!Desiree
: You were who I was trying to PM in my aboved mention PooFace moment!
I felt so stupid. I don't know how I PM'd everyone BUT you! Anyways, thank you for the help.Jaclyn
: No problem, Rain is complete awesome. He's my SK quivalent to Rob =) Ninja Assassin was a good movie if you like those types. Wow, you guys weather sounds horrible! The wind has died a bit here thankfully. I saw that we might have rain/snow Thursday though. I hate that I have to carry my laptop with me. If anything happened to it, I'd surely perish
