A part of me has been trying to ignore social media websites, but another part of me has been trying to keep up with it all. So what do I do in these situations? Nothing. Until I subconsciously come to a conclusion. Funny how the mind works.
These past days have been stressful, but also funny in a way.
Yesterday, I was trying to catch up on two episodes of the new sophisticated show, Awake, when one of my two cats (Cleopatra) calmly walked away carrying a cookie in her mouth. That was not her cookie. It was the last cookie in the container and she took it! During the last show I was watching, I thought I’d heard a small noise – like two surfaces rubbing together or something; I didn’t think much of it. After the credits were playing for the last episode, and I was stretching, Cleopatra walked to the other side of the room carrying a cookie. I didn’t say anything because it was their third birthday. We were both done and satisfied after our hard work (me with my completion of the two Awake episodes I was behind on, and her with her success in retrieving the cookie after all that while). I was shocked, amazed, you name it. These cats make sure there is never a dull moment. Sometimes it’s good, but most times (of course) it’s bad.
By the way, I’m sort of enjoying Awake. Though their stories are different, Awake and Lost are very similar. You keep watching it thinking you’ve finally reached the conclusion and then some insane twist comes out of nowhere and you’re back in the dark. At least Inception ended. It’s all very interesting, just very complicated. So, Awake isn’t my favorite of new shows, but I watch it. I also watch New Girl, Touch, The Finder, GCB, and I Hate My Teenage Daughter. Touch is also sophisticated, but not so much as Awake; yes, it has a lot more drama, but it’s meaningful. I don’t know why I watch New Girl and I Hate My Teenage Daughter. The former seems radical and possibly too typical for today’s television; but I watch it. I think I may have started watching it because I heard about Zooey Deschanel, which is kind of odd because I’m not that crazy about her.
I Hate My Teenage Daughter is a silly sitcom that I also insist on watching. The name doesn’t work for the show, and it’s almost unrealistic.
I will never understand myself.
Also, Youtube pissed me off a couple days ago by removing the account of the guy I was subscribed to that had playlists of full episodes of Criminal Minds. I was enjoying myself, and then they had to go and ruin it with their copyright bullshit. I knew it was coming, but I was still shocked when they removed it. Now I’ve been having issues hunting down free full episodes. I’m currently going with SideReel, but some of the links they provide want you to download the videos and plug ins and all that I don’t want to do. I don’t trust the websites, so I’d rather be safe than sorry and suffer. It’s kind of a lose-lose situation if you really think about it.
My grandmother is too busy telling me what I need to do with my life (college, etc.), and reminding me of my age and responsibilities to be actually helpful. I need her to retrieve boxes behind stores and anywhere else that has decent boxes that can be reused. We have somewhere between 17 and 20 days left till we move to Tennessee. I have packed four boxes in the past three days so far; my mother has packed maybe two boxes in the past two days. The funny part is she keeps getting on to me about packing when she’s barely even started! I don’t mind; I do mind the dust on all the things that haven’t been moved in ages blowing into my face. That’s unpleasant. Some things are prepared, but the rest is kind of everywhere; figuratively and metaphorically. When I try not to think about these stressful things, I just get even more worked up when I look at the calendar. I’ve been preoccupying myself with TV shows, books, and lately The Sims Freeplay on my Android phone. The latter is very addicting. Considering I haven’t played the PC version of The Sims in a long while, it’s too amazing. We have many computers, but I would prefer a gaming computer; especially since I plan on upgrading from The Sims 2 to The Sims 3. That’s a hell of a lot of graphics. I doubt my laptop can take it, it’s barely functioning as it is (I need to get the hardware checked out for a few minor things). My mother uses her laptop for – well, actually I don’t know. I just know she uses it a lot. And the desktop computer already has Photoshop and stuff. That’s a small dilemma I keep forgetting.
I love the library; it’s like a home to me. I would love to donate all that I can to help them with whatever they need. So I don’t mind paying fines for overdue books; but $12.30 is too embarrassing to take care of in person. I just haven’t gotten around to it. I have a few magazine subscriptions as well (one of which is active): Entertainment Weekly, Scientific American, Time and probably something else I can’t remember. My mom has two (one of which is active): People, and National Geographic. So it kind of works out. I really need a job though; I’ll deal with that later after this moving chaos is over.
I haven’t even been watching movies like I used to. I’m behind on a ton of new releases. I keep track of all of them though. But then there are the reviews that are piling up..
I’m still reading the same book for about a month now. It’s fascinating, I just haven’t been completely dedicated to it. I’m currently reading Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base by Annie Jacobsen. Area 51 is not what most people would think; that’s all I’m going to say about that.
I have a few other books I’d like to read afterwards:
- Scorpia Rising (#9 of the Alex Rider series) by Anthony Horowitz
- Psych Major Syndrome by Alicia Thompson
- On the Road by Jack Kerouac
I joined Pottermore late last night after finally hearing by word-of-mouth. I’m still learning, but it’s truly amazing. I don’t think their is a direct link to profiles, so I’ll just give my username (chosen by them): LeviosaStrike18084
