EDIT: I finally managed to figure out BellaBuzz with help from AnneMarie. She’s amazing, emgad. I was being such a n00b toward the situation. Haha. So go on, ask me question here or in the box on the sidebar. 🙂
I am a jafoolie.
How can I go around neglecting my blog like this? IT’S NOT GOOD.
So, basically I have no excuse for not blogging. None. Nada. Zipee-dee-doo-dah. I’ve joined a bunch of social networks and in my excitement I forgot to blog. Okay, I haven’t completely rejected it, I did visit it to see your comments. Those who do comment are amazing. Seriously, I am being serious. And I don’t do serious. Anyone who meets me or knows me IRL, knows I can’t be too serious.
Weeellllll… unless you really piss me off. Like today, for instance. You know when you reach a certain age and you start to reminisce about past lessons, like how bad/funny/good they were? I was doing that today with my friends as we were walking to Media Studies and I must have mentioned the name Mrs. Fitzjohn because suddenly my old ICT teacher appeared out of nowhere and started shouting, “What? What was that about Mrs. Fitzjohn?!” Obviously, when someone appears out of nowhere and starts shouting at you, you’re gonna get a little bit frightened. Like, where the hell did she pop out from? And why was she eavesdropping anyway? My friends and I breezed it up the stairs and hid in the recording studio until my teacher was like, “Uhm, what you doing in there?”
It’s not necessarily that we were saying anything bad about her and that’s why we ran but you know… We went down to the ICT department because the toilets on our floor are only for gents and Fitzjohn spotted us and accused us of sneaking. You what? We were going to the toilet but because they were locked we turned and were going to go back downstairs! So, how the fudge does that constitute as sneaking? She brought us into her office and started some whole great lecture about sneaking or something. I’m surprised I was so calm toward her; I’m better than I was before – if it was before I would of blew up in her face and started shouting at her, like how the hell can you get the situation so wrong? And what does it matter if we were going to use your toilets anyway?! She was like, “This is my area. My domain. What I say goes. Blah blah blah…” I felt to slap her and say, “Erm, I’m so sorry but were you the one who paid for the new building to be built?”
Then she proceeded to go on about how she was a good role model (JFC… oh, I can swear in Irish now but I don’t know how to spell it :D) and she’s like a mother figure. There is no way in hell I’d want her to be my mother, I mean my mother is strict but she just takes the biscuits. And once she gets started she doesn’t stop! We in there for about 20 minutes. SHE IS SO FRUSTRATING.
I think I was so calm toward the situation because I couldn’t see what we had done wrong. There was no point in getting frustrated about it. The ICT department are full of crap teachers. And honestly, that’s not just my opinion. A lot of people would agree with me, I’m sure, if I asked them. Discreetly, of course. I’m so glad I dropped ICT when I had the chance. The subject is useless. I mean, most of us have grown up in an age where we have technology around but yet still have some of the old stuff – which is really cool. We know enough about computers and anything else we want to know, we utilise our skills and find out more BY OURSELF. ICT is just a load of crap, to be honest.
Anyway, away from idiotic teachers and stupid subjects – I finally have the question for my English coursework:
Examine the portrayal of women as prisoners – To what extent do literary texts show the female gender and their condition to be subordinate and manipulated?
I’m doing a lot of feminist stuff this year which is kind of cool because what I do in Media, I can use some of it in English. We’ve also started reading the Aeneid for Classics by Virgil. AENEAS IS WAY BETTER THAN ODYSSEUS. Just letting you know, even though you might not know who they are.
I’ve discovered iChat on my Macbook (: So, if you have AIM then drop me a message: princetongur1315, I’d love to talk to some of my readers. Don’t mind the screenname, I made it the time Cinderella Story came out and I thought Hilary Duff was cool and Chad Michael Murray was as sexy as. Although, to be fair, he still is a little bit.
PS. Don’t watch if you are a twihard fan. Watch if you want Edward Cullen to get slayed by Buffy. Buffy, I love you ♥
