My Weird Knee And Other Low Key Pains

I think I scared my cats walking like Jack Nicholson in The Shining as I ran to catch them. I’ve been having knee problems, so constant bending of my knee hurts. I’m beginning to hate beds that lift a little above the floor; it makes a great hiding spot for the cats mostly because I can’t fit under there so I get looks of almost pity from my cats when I try to wiggle to the center underneath the bed. They’re always just out of reach -_-
I have to lock the cats up at night in their carriers because one cannot be trusted and the other is questionable. Cleopatra is a normal cat, so she might try to go after our bird while everyone is asleep. Jade, the strange and bad one, can’t be trusted. She will go after the bird if she gets a chance and she’s very destructive, so I can’t lock her in a bedroom. It’s a very difficult situation, as usual. You’d think I’d be in great shape from trying to catch them all the time (they’re fast little demons). I don’t know what interests me about cats; I really don’t.

My laptop died again the other day. I need to take it to get fixed, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. It’s a decent laptop, but I would prefer an updated one with more options.

Speaking of computers dying, my phone battery died while I was away from home. The thing about me is, I prepare for everything. I pack extra everything justifying it all by telling myself each time, ”Just in case…you never know..”. Sometimes I overpack but I feel good knowing I have plenty of everything so I’ll never be without anything (I think I fear boredom). I even packed a flashlight! But I didn’t pack an extra phone battery or charger. I had to wait till my mom and I got back home to get a new battery since there wasn’t a T-Mobile anywhere nearby (there’s only so much country I can take). So of course my phone died by then, but I had a tablet so it wasn’t so bad (oh my God, I sound like my ungrateful generation). I’m so sick of these damn smartphones and these stupid cellphone companies.

It’s been bothering me how behind I am from my peers. But I’ve almost made a decision about college. I want to study either Film (screenwriting/film criticism etc.) or Public Relations. I just don’t know anymore. It’d be cool to work with/for Johnny Depp though πŸ˜‰

Lately I’ve been keeping up with the following shows:
New Girl, Criminal Minds, Elementary and American Idol (I’m a fan of Keith Urban and am interested in what he has to say as a judge).
I’ve still been watching a lot of movies and I’ve been trying to write more (I’m working on like six different projects). I read some too; and when I’m not doing all of that, I’m playing two games: The Sims FreePlay (for Android) and iMobsters (for Android). Both highly addictive games.
Don’t worry, I’m working on trying to get a life.

Other than that, I guess my mind is just all over the place…

Unfinished Business of Leisure Activities, and the Devil

There’s a difference between my grandmother and the devil. He is red, and she is not.

Decided to answer my phone this morning…
-Your cousins and people you know and don’t know will be graduating next month. how do you feel about that?
-Fine.
I’ll spare you the gruesome details. But the conversation lasted 13 minutes and 5 seconds. You get the idea.

Almost done with Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris. I’m telling you this because I’ve been reading it for a week. Usually (lately) it takes me only three days.
Here are my excuses:
(1) I’ve been distracted with errands and other unpleasant family events.
(2) I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s a big book. Not really, but really.

I have unique things pasted to my walls. I don’t really pay them any attention. They’re just there. First there are the Johnny Depp posters that take up the majority of the space; then a few maps here and there, a Keith Urban pin up, a pair of cardboard 3-D glasses from about five years ago, my mom’s work schedule (I can never remember the crazy hours), the local library hours, some sign language and coding printouts, and a handwritten page of the Bill of Rights (useless considering we barely have those rights anymore).

Things have been crazy, and things have been boring. Needless to say, I still find entertainment.
