I've always been kind of an easily frightened, squeamish sort of person. I never liked scary movies and to be honest I still don't. Or rather, I don't like things that will make me jump - sudden movements or loud noises, etc... So I thought I'd put together a list of "horror" movies that I don't mind watching - for those more faint of heart like me. Some people have told me that these don't count as "scary movies" - but others I know disagree. So here we go.

1. The Mummy
2. Sleepy Hollow
3. Sweeney Todd

WE'RE PAINTING MY ROOM! FINALLY! AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS! White walls, good bye, I wish not to see thee any longer. Hurrah! Teal, deep red, dark purple, light green and gold, here we come!

One more day of school before Spring Break officially begins. I have no idea if I can actually make it through another ENTIRE day of school, this is going to drive me mad. I'm quite sure that once I've hit fifth period, I'm going to be ready to go home. I wish I could at least skimp out on Algebra, or something like that. It's the last class of the day, AND my least favorite, AND spring break is so close I could touch it - I would go through all six classes to start with, without complaint, if I could just miss Algebra and go HOME!

It's 7:35 AM and I'm starving, so I'm going to hop off now and head for McDonalds with my mom.

April 14th, 1912. That would be the date that the Titanic hit the iceburg that sunk it. Lives were lost that day, and I'm posting this in remembrance of those lives.

I've had a bit of a fascination with the Titanic since I was little; I've never seen the movie (gasp! I know, what kind of person am I?), but when I was younger my godfather took my brother and I to a traveling exhibit that was set up in our city that was all about the Titanic. They gave you a ticket with the information of a person who was REALLY on the Titanic, and they even had a giant ice block that was supposedly the same temperature as the water would have been when the Titanic crashed. It was by far one of the coolest experiences of my life - I'm just sad that one of my best experiences had to be fueled by the misfortune of others.

I didn't, before today. I was on StumbleUpon and came across an article featured on PBS about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire - and if you know know about THAT, well, then, I'm slightly ashamed of you. I found the article interesting, and at the very end they had a picture of this young girl's gravestone.

She was seventeen years old. She died on March 25th, 1911.
There was no birthday listed. I wish there was.

I feel like I should do something important or useful or something, anything to commemorate this young woman's memory. I don't think that I'm able to do much, but I can do this:

In Memory of Tillie Kupferschmidt.

Focus on NOW.
NOW is something you control.
Because you control the now, THEN will always be okay.
Panicking only makes NOW harder. Get past NOW,
and THEN will come as it may, and it will always be okay.

I've never been much into the whole April-fools day joke sort of thing. As a matter of fact, I wasn't even aware that today was April first until I was told so; I've been out of school for almost two weeks now from illness, and I finally went to the doctor yesterday to figure out what was wrong. Apparently, it's viral, but her gave me some medicine so hopefully I'll be back on my feet in no time - I better be, because I need to be. I still have to make up that chemistry test, and apparently my English assignment is due today. However, as I'm not there today, I guess that means that I will be doing the whole thing this weekend, because I definitely haven't done it while I've been sick.

No, mostly, I've been sleeping. A lot. As in, I'm not used to sleeping so much, and now my sleep schedule is weird because I can sleep practically all day and all night. When I have been awake, I've been watching movies and browsing the internet; because let's face it, that doesn't take a lot of brain power, and right now, I don't really want to have to USE a lot of brain power. I just want to relax. It's sort of hard to do that, however, when everyone is pressuring you to get better - the pressure isn't helping, number one, and number two, if you want me to get back so that I CAN make up my work, I have to be better first. Please refer to number one.

Movies I've watched in the past few days:
Tangled, which is now out on DVD (congradulations Disney on your 50th animation)
Young Frankenstein, because I feel like it

I know that's only two movies, but honestly, that's all I can remember - I watched Tangled like seven times, and I'm watching Young Frankenstein right now, debatably, so that's really all I've got.

There was a failed attempt to dye my hair blonde last night. Just thought I'd throw that out there. I guess I should go get it done professionally, but as I still don't feel wonderful, it might not be the smartest idea I've ever had. At least, not currently.
