Re: The Post About Today Topic


Guess what? In robotics, we have to design a course for a robot to pick up a ring, stop after five feet and get it into a tall bin! It's really hard but it's fun to plan and my group came up with the idea of trapping the ring on a stick in front of a robot and using the gear mechanism to pull the stick back and raise it higher, and then slant it down at the end to get it in the bin.

The trouble is my partner always talks about old Fortnite updates and when he tries to repair the robot he bends over and it's not a pretty sight emoticon

Oh. Dear.

Glad you're enjoying robotics - we're actually doing that to finish-off our Computer Programming class - good thing I have a partner, as well emoticon

Also, I spent last night writing 20 pages of my "book", following prompts from my English teacher :red Getting it all bound and made-into a book today. I really can't wait for the weekend now! emoticon

Just read that, it tickled me. emoticon

With us, it's technically our parents live with us - my sister owns the house. We've explained to people it's our turn to look after them, now. They've done their hard work. Has brought a tear to a few people's eyes, that.

Christmas 'decorations' are a little bit literal this year, as in we have to actually decorate before we can put up the decorations. Bare walls being plastered/painted/papered over, so we'll have all the decorations up by next week. It's different, I'll say that. emoticon

On three: Awwww emoticon emoticon emoticon

And good luck with that renovation - when we were moving last year (left the day after Christmas), we skipped decorating for that year, so that might be worth considering. Actually decorating your house is enough for one year!

Today was funny and I think it had a dancing theme.

My sister was standing on my back porch and it looked like she was about to breakdance out of the blue. I don't know why but she just looked like she wanted to breakdance! emoticon

Then my friend put his finger on my dog's back and it started wagging it's tail. It looked so musical emoticon

Then I found out my sister's friend's name is Dancey emoticon

Then I drew on my little sister's picture and she got mad at me for ruining it emoticon

Today was funny.

Re: The Post About Today Topic


Lol, well a lot funnier than things are seeming to me.

All my sisters seem to hate me. Want a fresh start. Maybe with new sisters? emoticon

Oldest one is a personal-space hog. If I’m within ten feet of her, her “bubble” is broken. Entitled much? Okay, I’m not the biggest personal-space person, but I’m respectful and do my best. If my friend was literally on top of me, it might make me uncomfortable but I’m not on top of her, I’m her family, etc. Whatever, people say I suck at that type of thing. Open her door this morning, asking to charge my phone (since she has the charger) and she’s all “Leave”, “I hate you, creep”, “ emoticon you”. That just reeks of spoiledness for me - never would I have thought of saying that word when I was 14 and I still never will now as it’s disrespectful IMO - whether or not you’re Catholic or another religion. Her immediate response to me or her parents is “I hate you”. She’s cursed-out my parents and given all of us the finger (which I don’t even know how to do!). I think this is because of Loveland - everyone here seems to believe that they’re entitled to say whatever they want, even if they’re in front of a crowd of teenagers.

My middle sister is kind of the opposite - everything MUST be PC. I like to joke about things with them, but she won’t stand it. Just gets annoyed at me. Also she leaves a trail of slime (the stuff you play with emoticon) and candle-wax wherever she goes. Stresses me out a lot with OCD. Anyway, yesterday we had to clean for ten minutes and they were all doing nothing. I took her drink and said “After you clean” and she was BAWLING over it. It reeked of immaturity and she still didn’t clean. It sucks, plus just the smug look on her face. She knows how irritating it is and still does it. I just don’t get how people can deal with being so... stagnant.

Then my second-youngest sister is five so essentially takes everything my older sisters say as Gospel emoticon. So usually I’m the worst person ever, etc. plus she’s so spoiled, expects chocolate-milk every hour, etc.

And my youngest sister is seven months old and adorable. She’s so amazing, such a miracle. The thing is all my sisters have lots of positive moments but they’re all so nasty that it gets hard to take.

And usually I’m the oldest so must be most mature, etc. emoticon

Back three weeks later as I need to rant again emoticon

This week completely sucks.

I started new classes on Monday (after finishing my old classes and just missing my A in math by one point emoticon ) and I really hate them.

Chemistry is the most over-the-top class ever, Spanish is fine, PE is insane for me because they expect me to know how to play "Pickleball" and "MatBall", which are probably exclusive to those who've lived in Loveland their whole life emoticon I suck at ball sports (decent at fitness/strength/running) as it is, and I have no idea what I'm doing, which makes it five times worse emoticon I feel like everyone hates me and whenever I ask a question, I get looks like I have tentacles growing out of my head. Then US History is fine, but nothing special.

But the main issue is my family (it gets more frustrating by the week these days). I came home after both of these days feeling pretty upbeat, but that's been immediately killed these last two days as my Mom is just being soooo moody. She registered my second-oldest sister for home-schooling (more on that later...), and she's complaining about how much of a chore it is to teach my sister and raise five kids. Well, I'm sure it is, and I am very impressed by her work, but there was definitely no one asking her to do this (my sister included!). So it's like... why'd you decide you needed five kids 15 years apart? Why'd you take my sister out of public-school? Why? Why? Why? emoticon

Anyway, after my Track practice she's been 15 or 30 minutes late both days. Not too far off the average, but still annoying getting home any later with all of this Chemistry homework!! She's very unapologetic compared to usual "Why'd you get out so early? You should have told me in advance, so I could get here." Yeah, like they let me know how long this practice will take! emoticon Sorry, just venting-out Loveland's stupid lack of plans for a second...

Tonight my Mom is complaining that I do so little and that she's going to send me a bunch of articles to read about what a 13-year-old should be able to do by themselves. And guilt me for not doing everything because I'm 16. Funny that she only ever looks at the articles about expectation for kids! I turned my phone off as getting these messages might just make me go ballistic. Sorry, I've just had it up to here (had it up to the height of the emoticon smilie's hair emoticon ) with all the guilt-trips. And it's like, I'm always cleaning up, taking out the trash, watching a sister or two, etc. I try my best.

One of the biggest things is waking myself up. Okay, I'll give her that, but if I wake up easily after being asked once, is it the end of the world? And packing my own lunch. She does not pack my lunch. If she thinks she does this, then I'm concerned, as she does not do so in any form. I don't pack lunch for myself because I don't want to get sick in Track. Track = feeling queasy, so why eat beforehand? Simples. emoticon

Plus, if I have anything more than that, I'm developing unhealthy tendencies and will soon become overweight. But if I ever mention being careful about what I eat, everyone flocks on me like "Brian, you're way too light" - it's so annoying.

But don't worry, my Dad will still go to Circle K three times a day and blab about "The parents treating themselves," so they are doing perfectly fine. Lovely.

I hate all of this appearance crap. "Hey Brian, you know teachers will grade you much better if you look better. Comb your hair. Your hair's a mess. Go get a jacket! No that's mine! Brian you look like a mess. Brian go get your jacket. I don't know where it is, you should (even though my Mom hangs it somewhere different every dang time). Hurry up!" There are probably five minutes of shouting at me about my appearance before I'm off to school.. after my Dad runs back inside to get his keys. I'm SUCH a disorganized mess though. I'm obviously the idiot who could've made me miss the bus.

I just hate it. I hate the school. The people can be really nice, but there are also some really cold ones. The teachers are shockingly good, but the classes are annoyingly computer-based (I am on screens more at home, so would actually rather paper for school). I hate that my house is infested with bats. All flying above me right now. Somehow, I doubt my Florida house is/will be infested. Wonder how I made that great conclusion.. emoticon

About my sister.. she befriended a girl this Summer who was extremely cheerleader-esque (you can imagine what I mean), my sister most certainly is not. Well, I thought this friend of my sister's seemed fake/shallow. I didn't say anything, but it was quite obvious. Well, at my sister's "surprise party" (that her friends planned, but promptly told her about), her friend punched her in the stomach and kept calling her fat and ugly. We assume she is jealous of my sister and didn't know how to express it. Well, my sister wanted nothing to do with this girl after that, and I can't really blame her.

Anyway, she made a friend early in November, whose Mom is an addict and Dad is.. out of the picture to put it lightly. I feel horrible for her, of course, but she turns-out to be an utter jerk too. For someone with that life, she comes across as incredibly spoiled and rude. She always needs attention and to be entertained. Anyway, no one else had really managed to decipher that one yet, and my Mom invited her to my sister's "makeup birthday party".

(My Mom told me this a few weeks ago, I wasn't there!). She decided to start the party off by sharing with my sister and another friend that her Dad was a emoticon offender (concerning a sixteen-year-old girl emoticon ). Apparently, she then complained at every possible turn about not getting to do things and saying how lousy my sister's party was, which is just really rude as she was invited to this expensive resort for free. At 11 PM she was saying "I'm bored" repeatedly and running around and her Mom drunkenly called saying that her daughter "May need to be sent to the psych-ward" (might've been a nice note before letting her daughter go with two girls her age and a newborn baby, don't you think?). She ended up staying up all night and so did my Mom because she was afraid this girl would get violent. The next day she was glaring at Chloe and sending her rude texts.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! Now, these girls are obviously crazy and I wish they never met my sister. But I do think that my sister brings some of this onto herself. She's pretty rude to/blunt with everyone and is soooooo sensitive. Talking to her is like: emoticon . She is really dishonest with me and gets me in trouble for stuff SHE should be getting punished for. And I don't dare try having a little joke with her. She would blow-up.

Anyway, mostly upset about my parents, but wanted to cover that story and get it all off my chest.

And I didn't even get to the friend's Mom murdering her cat so her daughter could stay with us for a day.

Loveland, this isn't normal! emoticon

Re: The Post About Today Topic


I find it crappy. My son is over harsh o. His name is Marshall o. I find it unique maybe. It is a rather common name o. I find it imoriginal. Oh my gosh I apologize i mean unoriginal rather. I find it insane.

Well anyway my husband was once a huge subtitute teacher. I signed him up you know? I find it giving. He was annoyed to me o. He said Sharon why the hell did you sign me up for this job? I said it is helpful. I drove him to the school. I find it charitable. I was stressed o because i was a huge history teacher however I did not want to leave my husband alone o. I think he ud say something stupid you know? I remained with my husband within the classroom. I said can they please share put a substitute teacher within my classroom. I find it wise and I am not big on my husbands jokes o. My husband one time put a pack of lime beans on his head. He said it was his beanie. I find his quips stupid o. Well anyway I viewed it. The class was a lovely Spanish culture edition o. I find it indigenous you know? My husband and me do not speak such a lovely language you know? I found it cumbersome. I said can someone say the date in Spanish. A student said it. He talked amusing o. He sounded like a doll o. He also said random crap from a book of Spanish words. My husband found it hilarious. I did not. I smiled. I said you are correct maybe. It was a little odd o huh? I did attendance o. I can not quite recall the names of my lovely substitute class o. The kid who talked unique said here and then encantado or crap. The class found it hilarious. I said we will learn greetings maybe. I then told my husband he must pay attention due to the fact that he was being paid probably. We did the greetings. I find it operable. The hilarious sounding student then said encontadoa and his name and other crap o. I found it odd to view. He said it several times o. I found it serious o. My husband found it hysterical.

We then had to learn about the vocabulary paper o. I did not quite know what the words mean o. I find it cumbersome. I then had to call a helper within the lovely Spanish classroom. A lovely Mexico member came to the room. She began to say crap in Spanish. She sang a song with the peers o. I found it interactive. I did not sing hardly. I find it nerve wracking. I smiled probably. I find it nice. My husband then went to the vending machine. I said hey Bill come back you are a substitute teacher! He said Sharon you made me be a substitute teacher. I found it cumbersome. The lovely Mexican woman did not quite understand English o. I find it tricky. She translated a huge message o. She said she must go to her class again now. I said no please stay. She did not understand. She left o. I find it prompt. I then said we can take a nap though. I find it fun and relaxing. My husband did not fall asleep. My husband read sports crap within the magazine he bought maybe. I find it stupid. A white car passed by my house several minutes ago.

You know when I was a teacher I one time had a student. I think his name was Woody or something maybe huh? Well I think he may uv been autistic you know? I find it logical I find him nice o. One day he said a hugely offensive comment o. I did a cause and effect test. I asked woody what is the answer? I think the question was why did Tony or whatever the hell his name is die when he was 43. I found the question thought provoking however the student was hugely crass o. He said it is because Tony is a fatass. I was shocked. I found it offensive to wide editions of people you know? Such a insult may also be directed at my husband though. I find it hilarious.

You know last week Messup ran 1 mile within 5 minutes on his treadmill. I find him speedy seeming. I think he may halsl runn again tomorrow huh? I find it hopeful. He may run. He may post a selfie to celebrate running on his treadmill possibly. I find it hopeful however chancy.
