[ mood | exhausted ]

I am utterly exhausted.

I'm going to half-disappear from the world for the next few weeks, at least until AP testing is over.

  Eww.

After June 9th, I will sleep for days.


Wish me luck, kiddos.

My immune system decided to curl up and die [25 Mar 2007|07:26pm]
[ mood | sick ]

So I got home around 1:30 am Friday night, developed some cough around 2, went to bed just before 3, and got woken up by noisy soccer players outside my window at around 7:45.  Because I'm amazingly smart, I decided to go biking in the canyon despite being weak/feeling sick on Saturday. So I came home and promptly developed a fever.
Nothing worked!  My folk remedies didn't do anything, so I took tylenol before I went to bed.  Then I woke up with an even higher fever.
So basically I've been in bed most of the day with a temperature of around 104 degrees.  But at least I've managed to get SOME hw done... though it was really painful. :P  Mostly I've been attempting to catch some sleep and reading Chomsky and AP gov't stuff.
Thank god we're testing block schedule tomorrow...I can't even imagine doing calculus right now.  I'm just relieved I got 3 hrs of chem done yesterday (grr...double the amt of hw for block schedule...) before my fever shot up to 104. 

I think I'ma skip ceramics and art tomorrow to come home and sleep. And do calc/gov't/work on OMS essay.
I'm so sickly lately...

I just hope I'm all better by Saturday morning...  Taking the chemistry olympiad! (which I haven't studied for at all...dammit)

I'm gonna get off the comp before my head explodes.

P.S. Failed States is brilliant.

I've all these songs in my head that I just can't write [17 Mar 2007|12:06am]
[ mood | tired ]

Finalllllllllllyyyyyy term 3 is over (although it actually went quick)!!  I had such a stressful week.  BUT...I got 8 hours of sleep last night for the first time in a while...and I feel great.

Plus, it's been super sunny this week!  I was all bitter for being too busy to play outside, but I forgot about school today and played for hours.  Chris and I played racquetball against Qiang and his girlfriend at BYU for a while.  Basically, Qiang did all the work for their team and still beat me and Chris (who was a lot better than me).  I'm not used to the way the ball bounces (tennis is still better!).  But at least I hit the ball instead of standing in the corner.  And then I redeemed myself by owning at ping pong. :P 
I'm so madly in love with this change of weather.  I just wanna dance around in the sun!!!  But I'm biking and playing tennis tomorrow so YAY!!!!!  And documenting my day in PIX.  Oh baby.
Sometimes I wonder why I'm so obsessed with school when what I really love is sitting down and painting or playing outside.  I guess I'm just overwhelmed a lot of the time.

I'm just relieved that March is half over.  Just gotta get through a few more weeks.  Not terrible, just the state math contest, comp gov't nigeria, and chemistry olympiad (I don't think I'll make the national test though...dammit Zane and Joe Cardon!) to add to my usual workload.  AND PAY FOR MY AP TESTS. GRRR. Timpview decided they want to raise the test fees this year...which I think it completely stupid considering that it costs the school what, $15, to order each test?  grrrr.  Then they use all their money to redo the soccer field every damn year.


YAYSUN.

Another day older and deeper in debt [09 Mar 2007|06:16pm]
[ mood | sick ]

Well...I'm currently running a fever and set to take the SAT tomorrow morning.  What a terrible 5 hours that will be.  Plus I'm missing the surprise party Aimee's dad had planned for her tonight.  Damn.

I seriously have no idea what I have.  Mostly cold symptons, but I've also got other weird symptoms that I've never experienced before.  Hmm.

Both my mom and I aren't too fond of modern American remedies (tylenol, aspirin, etc), but downing Chinese herbal tea (which usually rocks) for the past few days hasn't helped.
Guess I'll try make some ginger tea tonight.

Tomorrow was supposed to be SAT, piano lesson, biking, and plans with MORP group (except that I decided I'm not going to the dance, so I'll have to inform them XD).
I think I will abandon all of those plans, except the SAT.  Hopefully I'll be in a good enough condition to get through the test okay.  If I am...I'll try to show up for open studio in the afternoon. :)

I'm still not giving up my teas and folk remedies!

I am so spent.  But I had a blast singing and dancing with neat strangers for several hours.

This was one of the smelliest shows I've ever been to...And easily the most enjoyable.

I accidently bit some guy's arm in the pit--  I think he may of thought I did it on purpose because he turned at patted me on the head afterwards. Hahaha.

I had such a great time.  Defiance, Ohio is great live.

P.S. I finally met Bombs and Beating Hearts!

I know I'm discontent here, but I think I'll get through intact.  I just wish I had more faith in myself, and not the temporal kind that shatters every other night.

MESA was so fascinating today.  Even with our pitiful, 5-member, AP Physics/AP Chem clan.
We had around 8 engineering students visit from BYU, give demos/presentations, and discuss different aspects of engineering.
The electrical engineering major did the most demos, but we did have pretty good representation (except civil engineering).  One of the chemical engineers didn't seem too happy with me when I sort of discredited Purdue....But hey, she's from Indiana (bias?) and Berkeley's got it all figured out in science/math.

I am intrigued.

Tell me some lies and I'll slide you the same [09 Feb 2007|10:47pm]
[ mood | dizzy :( ]

Heyheyheyyyyy Mr. Hangmannnn.

I feel dizzy and a bit nauseous.  I thought it was hunger at first, so I proceeded to eat excessively.  Apparently it's not hunger.  It's a genuine...dizziness.

Flashlight Brown makes me miss the good ol' days that weren't actually so good.  But whatever.  I still miss freshman and soph year.
And I still feel old even though I'm not.  Whatever again.

I am fabulously tired, and my dad is coming home from China tomorrow.  I called him a few hours ago at the Pudong airport in Shanghai and he said he felt like fainting from the weight of his luggage.  Poor guy. 
I also realized that my dad is always much nicer to me when he is out on business.

He sent me an e-mail the other day:

Angela,
 
I have one more day left in Shanghai and I'll try to find what you need even though I can't guarantee that I will be able to find those.
 
How is school? I am very proud that you have achieved what you have achieved.  People are amazed by you.  Daddy is so proud of you. However, do not stress out yourself too much by working too hard. You need a healthy body to continue your education in college and future.
 
Take care. I'll see you soon.


Aw, I mean, that's nice and everything, but I know if I'm more touched or completely WEIRDED out by my dad's sudden sentimentality.  He's always struck me as rather cold and distant.  And we never did get along too well.  That was nice though.



Anyway, it's been a while since I posted any sort of pics here, so ....Here are few.

   /crappyphonepic.

So at Chemistry in Action (I know, I'm a nerd) the other day, we did two thermite reactions and blew up a hydrogen balloon.  Chris found some random guy online and purchased enough aluminum, iron oxide, and magnesium for an impressive reaction, but I think it's going to have to wait  until after AP testing. But really, what weirdo high school student randomly goes online and purchases chemicals from random people?  Hmm.

My tears and my sweat stay warm with a vision of you driving me home [01 Feb 2007|07:28pm]
[ mood | surprised ]

Well.

I've been managing fine.  Unslept, but fine.  And I'm content for the most part.

We ended up winning a lot of awards at the MUN conference (yes, our pathetic, 8-member delegation), including the first place (3 delegations got it) award.  It's currently sitting beautifully in one of the glass displays next to Miss Mackay's room, above the AP plaques. :)  And we won the top/outstanding delegation awards in each of our committees.  Brad and I also won Top Position Paper in our committee, which was really sad considering that we didn't finish our paper until the day before the conference.
It was fun, nonetheless.  Disregarding some of the annoying delegations from other schools.  38 countries were represented at the conference, I believe.  Not too shabby.  Lee and I are hoping to go to the 3-day Western U.S. conference for MUN next year.  Oh, I forgot...
Say hello to your new Model U.N. president for the 2007-2008 schoolyear!!!!!  Well, co-president.  Lee and I are sharing the presidency.  We won't be near as amazing as Cathy, but...oh well.  I'm excited to be heading it.  
I think I have a pretty good chance for the DA presidency as well, so yay.

Today held a rather pleasant surprise:

3 people were nominated from our school for some national achievement award in writing.  Me, Hyung, and Julianne.
I'm way enthused over this opportunity, but also a little nervous.  We get to take some two-hour essay test in March.  And send in some of our work to a state coordinator. 
I hope it's a good experience.

Now I'm just relieved that I have nearly everything for my college app solidified.  I was worried that the "awards, honors, etc. received" area on the Princeton app would look sort of blank, but now it should be pretty filled up now.  This year's been great.  Plus, lots of clubs mean....lots of yearbook pages!  Yaay! 

NOW, IF ONLY MY POLICY DEBATE PARTNER DIDN'T LEAVE ME TO GO TO JA-FSKING-PAN.

But I'm not really mad.

In fact, I even invented a super-awesome recipe in honor of her.  Or rather, I added kissables and LOVE to the ol' puppy chow/muddy buddy mix.
That's right...  They're called Muddy Tuddies!  And are quite tasty. 


My Warped Tour toes have also, finally, for the most part, healed.  6 months.  Whoa.  Basically, going to Warped means you end up seeing crappy bands, get heatstroke, and getcompletely beat up.  And speaking of shows, Against All Authority is playing March 3rd.  I'm thinking I may go see them again this year, although I'm not so fond of their new stuff.

And I'm rambling and blahblahblah.

Oh, and today (wow, I typed "Tuddy" at first) is the first day of February.  So..
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! <3
and more importantly, HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!

Let February be a wonderful month before the horribly busy month of March !  Poo on March.

Another year gone by but still I can't tell why I cry so much [01 Jan 2007|01:40am]
[ mood | okay ]



Just into 2007, and I felt like I should make my first post of the new year.  I'm not sure how I feel.  A little confused, a little tired, a little nauseated, a little excited, and a little sad.

2006 was a good year.  I hope 2007 is as well.

So far in 2007....    I have not yet used the bathroom.  My first text was from On.  My first call was from Chris.  My first LJ post is in the process of being constructed.

I'm not going to make a resolution this year, since I forget mine within a few days anyway.
But I will reflect a bit.
In 2006, I...
turned 15.
had my first experience with AP testing.
spent two weeks in Shanghai.
went to my first high school dance (I know, wtf).
got really sunburned for the first time.
got heatstroke for the first time (100++ degree moshpits = not a good idea).
dressed up as a fobby Asian tourist.
ate a lot of good food.
learned a lot.

Seriously, why is it so hard to compile a good list?  Maybe I didn't do as much I thought in 2006, but I had a good year nonetheless.

In 2007 I have definite plans to...
turn 16.
spend a few weeks around the country.
pass all my AP tests (with mostly 5s. :) )
do a lot of community service.
apply colleges!

2007 looks like it'll be a busy year.  I think I might spend a month at a university summer program in the east.  Or maybe somewhere else, but I don't really want to spend my summer here.
I'm also really wishing I could visit China.  I don't think I'll get another chance till 2009, despite my longing to go in 2008 for the Olympics.
I don't really know what to do about the Global Young Leaders Conference either.  They nominated me to represent the US this year, but I declined with the excuse of being too busy.  They're renominating me in 2007, but I'll be even busier.  Crap.

Anyway.  I spent my last hours of 2006 playing pool with Asian boys (one of which is an MIT student...  aaah).  The young'uns raped our table.  Damn.

Well, now it's about 2 hours into the new year and I should probably hit the sack.

Let 2007 be pretty damn awesome.

We clean up and now it's time to learn [07 Nov 2006|03:41pm]
[ mood | tired, but fine ]

Happy election day!

Miss Mackay was all cute (okay, so she's always cute) today, walking around with her "I voted" sticker! I have a slight suspicion that she voted straight-ticket, but that's fine by me! She voted for Burridge and Ashdown as far as I know. :)
I love her!

The Democrats are totally gonna take the House. First time in over ten years! I'm not so sure about the Senate... But hopefully they'll still make some gains.

I've been fine. Extremely busy, but fine.
I still wonder if I have faith in anything at all, and I still go through short spells of depression and confusion, the same old disillusionment I found during my summer of reading German philosophy (although at the same time, being filled with the inspiration of anarchist literature), but I'm good. And I don't regret anything in my life anymore.

This year has gone by really fast. November already! I normally suffer from pre-winter depression, but it's been sunny, despite the cold air. :]
This year is going to be good.
I've been working really hard lately. Piles of AP work, music, art, debate, other extracurricular. Model UN is starting, and I'm thinking of doing it this year... Missed out last year cause I didn't want to represent Finland! I just don't think I'll be able to balance it out with everything else I'm doing.
Oh well. Je suis content! Speaking of which, I miss French.
My piano teacher decided that I should major or minor in music when I go off to college in two years. "Fat chance", I say. But she still wants me to continue studying music. SO...that means lots of time-consuming music theory. And November also means I pull out my Tchaikovsky and continue my annual tradition of playing something out of the Nutcracker Suite for the Xmas recital.

Ahh.

Oh yeah. Halloween was last week. I was an Asian tourist! Fresh off the boat, baby!
Chris decided to cancel on me, so I hung out with Brenda/Trevor/Jess/Harry/some Jon kid.
I wish I went to the AP Chem BBQ though. Even though I don't eat BBQ.
Basically, half of our class decided to show up on Shelton's lawn and have a barbecue. Turns out, Shelton didn't inform his wife of his class's plans, and she called the police and fire department. Hahaha. Go ask Krys about it.

Dance & other activities on Friday, & a city council meeting (okay, so I think we've already established the fact that I'm a bit nerdy) coming up!

And now I'm off.

Mnph.

UEA this week.  I'm afraid I'll be studying most of it away, but it's pretty likely that I'll stay up in Park City for a litte bit, which is good.

asdlfadfija;efalsdf.  Crappy and vague summary of weekend?
After debate, Aimee and I went out for coffee and rice pudding on Friday.  And swerved and sped around in large puddles like the irresponsible teenagers we are (I don't know how in the world she got her license).  Then I er, came home and drew for the rest of the day.  Whoop.
Hung out with Sami for a little bit on Saturday and saw Jet Li's Fearless.  It was boring.  Really boring.  But the movie was decent.  Cried at least 4 times...
Don't remember anything else I did...  Except paint walls and windows in the basement.  Yippee.

Welcome to my boring life.


I ate a lot today.   was abnormally hungry...and after I ate and decided I was full, I sat down to do homework.  5 minutes later, Aimee and Jessie randomly showed up my doorstep and we got rice pudding and ice cream (YAY SPONTENEITY...?  andfood.).  And doorbell ditched random stuff on certain people's porches.

I also had at least 3 or 4 people ask me about Sadies today...  Apparently, everyone thinks I'm going?  Wtf.

My entries are boring as shit.  I really can't think of anything interesting that's been going on in my life recently.  Pfft.

I'm sick of people being materialistic shitheads.  I don't know about you, but I prefer not to waste time thinking about what items I'll be spending my money on next, and complaining about items I can't afford.  It's petty and stupid.
I'd very much like to tell everyone to stop being ignorant morons.  And then there are those people who pretend to be interested in world issues when they don't really give a shit.  And people who call themselves activists, and then don't do a single thing for what they claim to believe in.  I'm not saying that I'M necessarily an activist; it's just that apathy is a great annoyance of mine.  I'm going to kick the next person who says "I'm against it, but there's nothing I can do about it".  Uhh, nice excuse, asshole.

adfasdfasdf.  On other topics...
Awesome...  Totally aced today's AP chem test.  Apparently, I've been setting a trend of getting 97 every other test.    Aaand 99 on the calculus test.   101% on the ap govt.   Good testing week.
Oh baby.
There was a time when I wondered whether the education obsession was what I wanted, but I think I do enjoy the ap program.  It keeps me busy.  Timpview better be able to fit in the 5 ap classes I'm taking next year.  Or else it'd suck, and I'd lose my chances of being an AP scholar.  Grrrr.
I think it's funny how the Harvard representative made everyone suddenly think they could get in.  I've heard a bajillion people say they want to go to Harvard now.  Hey, well, the school'll get rich off your application money.  To be honest, the only person at our school who I think is capable of getting in..is Zane.  And he deserves it.

So what else have I been up to lately?  Well, being tired, for one.  Got home around 1:30 am Saturday, got up early Sunday, and have been studying into the night everyday this week.  I don't mind anymore, though.

I finally got a hold of a camera last week, after being camera-less for quite a while.  I'll post pics!  And then there are those China pics which I promised in what, June? July? 
Which reminds me...I'm pretty sure my eyes were closed in the group picture at Homecoming.  Oops.  Hahaha.  No retakes on that...

Vicky tells me I really should've done tennis team.  I wish I did.  Although my game hasn't been the best lately...  Lack of practice, I guess. 

Errrgh.  I've been a bit behind on the FFOL issues I had planned to distribute by now.  Gotta get with the game..

And this is just the same old boring LJ entry.

P.S. Tell everyone to stop complaining about gas prices and actually -do something- about them.  Utah's are among the highest in the nation.  We don't like it, but we're still willing to pay that much.  Walking/biking is so much healthier, for both yourself and the environment.
:)

More later, I suppose?
Until next time, then.

You can plan a pretty picnic, but you can't predict the weather [15 Sep 2006|12:58am]
[ mood | restless ]

I played tennis in the rain today, with Chris Cullen and Dan at Kiwanas.  I'd been dying to play all week, ever since the US Open Championship!  But ....didn't find time till today.

They were taking me home when we caught Mr. so-and-so on my front lawn with a large amount of string--  they got me the hell out of there (but not till after Mr. so-and-so looked directly at me D: ).  Chris got us ice cream and didn't take me home until an hour later, only for us to find strings tied all around the front lawn, and running down the neighborhood.  So, I had to follow all the strings in the rain (or rather, Chris and Dan followed them, while I froze to death and tried avoiding tripping over them all) before any of my neighbors got to it.  Haha, strings.  Clever.

Yeah, so....homecoming.

Crap.

Not that I wasn't suspicious.  Why are people predictable?

I doubt I even have time for it.  I've been studying a lot.  But it's been sort of paying off!   Some kid and I both got 97 on the ap chem test this week...  But Hyung got 100!! >O (damn).  I had a small hope of the high score.  I was a bit annoyed (though very pleased with my score XD) over my essay test in Gov't from the 2001 AP test.  Miss Mackay seemed to have taken off half a point for no particular reason, on the paragraph where I discussed the elastic clause and judicial review.  I totally owned the sample essays!  Hmph.  Except one sentence about the McCulloch case that didn't quite make grammatical sense.  But still!  I'll shut up about that now.

I was depressed most the week.  Spent an awful amount of time trying to decipher whether I was living for anything or not, and over the meaninglessness of life in general.  You know, some days, I spend my time dreaming up revolutions and being all idealistic; and some days I have no faith in anything.  Bipolarism?  I don't know; I spend a lot of days in between.
I wish I believed in something, because I doubt everything at one point or another.

[ mood | nostalgic ]

I've been missing freshman and sophomore year terribly lately.  Being a junior is so.... weird.  High school feels close to being over.  I've wanted to leave for so long, and college is the way out of here, but there are some things I'll miss.

This post was originally going to be another post about school, but I'm sick of it.  Between this year's workload of 4++ hours of homework each night, instruments, and being so pressed for time, I can't seem to do much I enjoy lately.  I don't know whether I'm doing this for myself or my parents or whatever...
At least I still waste part of my weekends.  I'm gonna try not to think of what it'll be like when debate season starts, or in April, into the heavy preparation for AP tests.

I've been meaning to update my LJ all week, but haven't gotten around to it until now.  And now I've forgotten most of what I felt like saying all week.  However, I do want to share this picture I took with my phone driving down univ pkwy?  Whatever road that was.  Facing Utah Lake.  I'm horrible with Utah streets.



I love it!

I miss French!  I've had at least 6 or 7 people from the class last year, telling me French III sucks without me.  And how Claytie is all quiet without me and Chase to distract him. =(

Blah...  What else have I been up to lately aside from school?

Sami called me last week, just having returned from the middle east.  I was happy, considering that someone had led me to believe that he was dead for a moment-- it was actually pretty believable.  Plus, I hadn't heard from him all summer, which didn't help my being gullible over it.
I also went to dinner with Romrom.  I dropped a peach on the table at some point, and decided to turn the peach into a face.  Then Romrom drew a moustache on it.  It later turned into an IOU note that we left instead of a tip.



Haha.

I was really angry this week over my lack of attendance at the protests on August 30th.  I had planned on going for a month ahead of time, and I had gotten ahead in classes to attend.  Well, my mom found out, and did everything in her power to keep me away from SLC that day.  Plus, it was my dad's birthday.  It was -not fun-.  I was really looking forward to Rocky Anderson's speech(es).  I have a lot of respect for him.  It was probably the worst part of my week, missing it.
Now I have to wait until next year...    Unless some sort of crisis happens here.
Eh.

We watched a few minutes of George Dubya speaking for the Orrin Hatch fundraiser in AP Gov't (you know, because Hatch definitely needs any more money ...harhar).  Of course, at the end of Bush's speech, Ben Harrison clapped.  I asked him if he'd been listening, and he replied that he had heard "some of it -- the part about freedom"  (WOW! TWO LINES!).  He's always been horribly republican, obsessively in love with President Bush, and unaccepting.   But he's funny nonetheless.

Oh well.   I'll try to post more pics now; I have thousands upon thousands that have been building up for the past 2 years.  And then there are the China pics that I said I'd post months ago!

I've been camera-less for a few weeks now.  It's quite depressing; I see pictures I want to take everywhere.

At least I've got my phone. <3



And its crappy-quality pics.           ....I look creepily pale in that pic.


I hiked 8 miles with my mom on Sunday.  We both intended to go further in, but we ran into a rattlesnake, which put her off from going in more.
I want to start hiking every week.  Anyone up for it with me?

Well, school starts in less than week.  I hope this year is good.  I'm scared I'll be busy all the time.  I don't really want to do debate this year, but I think Aimee wants me to be her policy partner... Even though we all decided Utah policy debate was a joke.  Hmm.
Hey, maybe I'll motivate myself enough to actually study for the SAT too.


The other day I decided to bike across town out of boredom.

A storm was coming in, and I snapped this photo with my phone:



Had to share that pic. =]   There was lightning flashing around where the sky was a warm color, but I didn't capture it.

Upon saying that, history is very important to me, and I am going to post on an event that is important to me, partly for its obscurity.

It makes me really depressed that it's so unknown; the Japanese did very well in covering it up.

Bleh.
