2006 Time Person of the Year
21 years old and future college graduate. Posting a variety of useless things.
Major League Baseball has taken immense lengths to condemn steroid users. Players are suspended for 50 games on one positive test, and Alex Rodriguez was banned for a full season. I understand that they’re interested in maintaining the purported “integrity” of the game by keeping it clear of PED-users (only after it’s happened and they enjoyed the riches that came from it, of course).
On the other hand, Josh Lueke still plays baseball. He’s a relief pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays, and he is literally a *convicted rapist.* It’s fucking infuriating that the league considers itself on such a moral pedestal when it comes to PEDs, but it completely ignores stuff like this.
I spend a lot of time thinking about what kind of ECG my activity bar looks like.
This one just came back from the dead and now is having major fluctuation in BPM.
I HAVE SO MUCH HOMEWORK TO DO WHAT AM I DOING
I have started including Game of Thrones on my to-do lists. Not because it’s a chore to watch them, but because otherwise I would do nothing but. Had to pause the Season 2 premiere to remind myself to do homework (and make pizza) today.
Guess I finally found my Breaking Bad replacement.
I bite my tongue/gums in my sleep and get canker sores all the time (PITY ME), so I have this medicine called Kanka that is this gross goop that I dispense with a wand, like bubbles. But tonight I did it at like 3:45 AM and thus I was not entirely “with it,” as the youth say. Short story short, I put way too much in my mouth by accident and now I can’t feel anything and am drooling hardcore.
Not a good day for the proper dosage of over-the-counter meds on my part. Don’t worry ma, being a quasi-adult is pretty chill so far.
The Comcast person never came this afternoon, but now our internet is working anyway. I’ve been extra cautious and am loading all of the videos and articles that I think I might want to watch/read tonight, just in case the internet crashes again.
This is my equivalent to a bunker in case of nuclear war. I mean, slightly less severe but its the same idea. Just with Game of Thrones and Grantland instead of canned goods and water.
Now that I’m 21 and long-removed from high school, I feel moderately comfortable telling my parents things about high school that I previously was unable or just terrified to do so.
For example, over winter break I told them about a time I skipped school in senior year. My school was having a day for everyone to stay in their homerooms all day and just talk about what they liked and disliked about the school. It actually is a pretty cool idea, but I asked this girl (who I then dated) to hang out in the city so obviously I did that instead. They didn’t seem upset by it—my mom even said she knew I hadn’t gone that day because when I told her what happened at school I was super sketchy about it.
But then I also told them that I memorized the exact time of the automated call from the school that came whenever I had an unexcused absence. It was 7:17 PM, and I would sit by the phone when necessary to intercept the call.
They were less amused by that. Which is confusing, because either way I’m skipping school, but in the second one at least I’m being smart about it. I’d give myself props.
I have seasonal allergies and I took these meds but apparently they’re very strong and so now I’m in bed. I feel high but it’s not fun. So who wants to ask me questions? Do it! Do it! Maybe get silly answer.
Also our internet is down again so I’m on da phone
