I think we should have school year-round. I mean, think about it. We'd get two-week breaks spread throughout the year, and I wouldn't have to go stir-crazy during the summer. I really wouldn't mind doing that. School starts in two weeks, and I'm practically dying to start going again. If I went to school all year, I would be a happier student. They do that in Germany, and their students, according to test scores, are smarter than American students. Then again, every country probably has better students than this one.
Borders (the bookstore) is closing. Which really makes me sad. It's probably because of those freakin' Kindles and eBooks and Nooks or whatever. I can understand why avid readers would want them (who wants to lug around books everywhere?), but I looove cracking open a real book. I love the smell of the pages in a brand-new book. I love holding a book in my hands. I dunno. Maybe I'm just being weird. But now I have to order books on Amazon, and if Amazon stops selling books, I will cry. I seriously think that by the time I become an author, books will be obsolete and Kindles will take over the world.
In other news, I am officially addicted to the show Hoarders. I watch it all the time. Mental disorders, such as compulsive hoarding, really fascinate me. It's an educational show, really. The conditions that these people are willing to live in for the sake of keeping their hoard is astounding.
This unrelenting heat wave is keeping me from doing fun outside stuff. Bleh. It's been 100 degrees in this area for two weeks now. So much for getting off the couch and taking a nice walk or bike ride. I did swim today, and my mom yelled at me for putting a baby frog in the pool while she was swimming with me. Hehehe.
My orthodontist told me to wear bands on my braces again. Supposedly the right side of my jaw and the left side are not exactly even, so I'm expected to wear bands on my left side. Ha! Yeah right. I wore bands half a year ago, and it was helllll. I had to take them out and change them every time I ate, my teeth and jaws hurt, and putting the bands on is quite a task. I'll put these new bands on once or twice a day, and while I sleep, but not all the time. Hooray for putting my jaw alignment in jeopardy for the sake of comfort!
Finally, a question: Is it possible to love someone that you're not physically attracted to?
