Personal Note
My Latin teacher told my class that he believes everybody likes fireworks because on some molecular memory level they remind us of the Big Bang. I said, "Sorry to burst your bubble, but maybe we all just like sparks and loud noises."
music. equal sign. life. =D otherwise.........Jesus rocks my face off. I really really like superhero movies. Electric bass is an awesome substitute to having any sort of life to speak of. I like cheeseburger Pringles and peanut butter chocolate chunk granola bars. I'm that annoying kid who goes to the mall with a bunch of her loud and annoying friends and stares at the ceiling to see how many people they can get to stare with them until the rent-a-cop tells them off; essentially i have become the kind of teenager i was so very afraid of when i was younger.
Rocking, music - performing and listening to, bass (not the fish, silly), lil bit of guitar here and there, writing, terrifying strangers, causing uncomfortable scenes in public, you know, the usual. Annnd i pwn at boxing on the wii. Suck it.

One of them I got pulled out was a wisdom tooth. It was growing in all sideways and stuff. Also was into my sinus cavity a bit, which is probably why i've had an earache for the past few days.

Things are a little better in the girl department, other than that my life is bad right now.
My grandma is in the hospital. Not for anything like a life or death situation, though if we would have waited longer things could have gotten worse.

I just talked to her about it and she said she's not sure about going. She thinks it will be boring.

I feel kinda weird right now cuz I still like her alot and all, but I think I may be starting to like one of her friends too. Not like one of her best friends or anything though, but that's still probably a no no.
