    I lit a small firecracker in my car,

    i went to throw it and the window was up, me and my friend were both still in the car, the doors were locked and we didnt have time to get out. Hurt our ears but no real damage. I felt so stupid.

    I was telling a few people the story today

    about the time I kept touching a fuzzy cactus. I didn't know the fuzzy stuff on the cactus were glochids (barbed hair-like spines/short prickles). Basically felt like splinters and my entire palm hurt when I touched something after. I spent hours trying to take out tons of these...

    I Did Something Seriously Stupid...

    When I was sixteen I was online at teenspot.com chatting with other 'teens' I had never met before. One of them asked me to take my clothes off and touch myself and I did. I had never been with someone before that and it was totally out of character. I snapped out of it a few...

    Sigh

    I did something stupid. I told someone I liked them. They rejected me. I knew they would. And I did it anyway. Not knowing would have been better than this. I guess it's true. If you can love someone, you can hate them just as much.

    raw eggs is BAD! Well it's healthily if they are from free roam chickens, but store bought are BAD! You can get salmonella from them -~-. Ugh, yuck. I don't like the taste of raw eggs. Never again, never again.

    I Started To Hope

    For a while I thought I finally had what I had always wanted. I was starting to hope. I never should have. I should have remembered I don't get what I want. Ever. It would never happen. No matter how much I wanted it. I never should have forgotten that.

    I've been working so much lately

    that it's effecting my judgement and ability to function. Today I was working a band concert and thought it would be goofy to dance at the end song so all the kids onstage could see, but later realized it just reminded everyone of how much I'm not an adult.
