People tell me not to wallow in self-pity. That other people out there have it worse than I do. You shouldn't complain about the things you don't have, but rather be happy and grateful for the things you DO have.
I'm sorry, but if I'm having a bad day and you come up to me telling me you have it worse than me, even if you explain your story and do IN FACT have it worse than me, I will be sympathetic towards you, but I WILL NOT feel sorry for you. OR feel better about myself.
I probably sound like a bitch. But I just get really annoyed when I'm in a really bad mood, and it's not a time when I want the truth. It's a time when I need comforting. You think that telling me that other people have it worse than me is going to make me feel any better? NO. In fact, I'm going to feel shitty, ON TOP OF feeling bad for all the others who DO have it worse.
Some people just have bad moments or days. I am damn grateful for everything and everyone I have in my life. All. The. Damn. Time. I may not show it all the time, I may take advantage of a lot of the things I have, but I KNOW I have it better than others. And I don't need ANYONE to remind me of that.
Wouldn't you agree?
I was in a good mood before I wrote this. Honest.

So I took a stupid Facebook quiz the other day. It was typically like all other stupid Facebook quizzes. Stupid. But time-consuming and some-what amusing, none-the-less. The title was "What is your biggest weakness?"
After answering 12 or 13 questions, my answer was jealousy.
At first when I saw this, I laughed. Because I figured there were SO many more things that could be counted as a bigger weakness, for me, anyway.
I took this quiz maybe two days ago, three days tops. And over these three days, I realized that this quiz was right. I AM super jealous. Now, some of the description was off, but only by a little. I get jealous of people constantly. People I should be jealous of but really shouldn't, and people I really, REALLY shouldn't be jealous of. Heck, some people I don't even know I get jealous of. But for good reason, obviously.
I mean. Is there something wrong with me, or is this normal?
SIDE NOTE. I learned new words today. Barren. It means empty, isolated, lacking. A synonym is desolate. Something completely nerdy of me? These words completely made sense when relating them to World of Warcraft. There are lands on the map called "The Barrens" and "Desolace," and both places when playing were very empty, isolated, and lacking.
MY Thanksgiving break. Also read question at bottom.

Was...different, to say the least.
This was either my second or third Thanksgiving after my parents split where my mom DIDN'T eat dinner with me, my dad, and well the rest of his family who lives in town. It's always been strange, but I guess I've gotten used to it.
This year was EXTRA different because not only did I have to go to three households for separate Thanksgiving dinners, but one of those household's happened to be my boyfriend's. I've never spent any holiday with a significant other, so it was weird. He even had his doubts. But it ended up being a good holiday.
Let's fast forward to Saturday night. You may have read in one of emilyography's blogs about going to her friend's house to help put up a Christmas tree because her friend's mother is blind? Yeah, that friend is my boyfriend. And this was my FIRST year helping out.
Let. Me. Tell. You. That family will wear you out with teasing and taunting. Like they say, "If we don't make fun of ya, we don't like ya!" Definitely something that I should be used to after being with the guy for almost ten months. Ah well. I love that family. No matter how much his dad intimidates me o.o And actually, I ended up having a good time. His mother baked DELICIOUS cookies, and putting up ornaments was a jolly good time, if I do say so myself.
OHMYGOD. I ALSO GOT A MATH PROJECT DONE. ON TIME. AND I KNOW THE ANSWERS ARE RIGHT. I. AM. SO. EXCITED. Why? Because I suck at math. This is a great achievement.
Does anyone on NuTang read manga? Like, shojo manga? If so please recommend some series to me. I'm running out! Thanks :D

I've become quite fond of Lady GaGa, as of late. I just downloaded her album "The Fame Monster" yesterday, and I am more than pleased with the tracks I purchased.
My favorites on the album are Alejandro, Telephone, and of course Bad Romance. And out of these three Alejandro is my current favorite. I mean, think about it. A lot of people dislike her, why? Let's take a look.
I will name a reason why people dislike her, then in parentheses I will explain why that reason is bogus (in my opinion, anyway).
1. Lady Gaga is weird. (She's different; plus, it gets her noticed and remembered as an artist, does it not?)
2. She's just trying to be weird to get noticed. (It's working, she's been noticed.)
3. She can't sing well. (I suppose that's your opinion. But she sings really well, actually.)
4. She doesn't perform well live. (LIES AND SLANDER. If you watch ANY of Lady Gaga's performances, she sounds really good live. Closer to the real thing than a lot of artists out there these days. Not to mention she puts on a good show with each song, giving each track a special introduction. It's genius.)
5. I just don't like her music. (Again, your opinion. Don't diss, though. State your opinion, then shut it.)
I love techno music, and she incorporates the perfect balance of pop and techno in to all of her songs. They're such catchy tunes; she's all I've been listening to the past 24 hours.
Just thought I'd share all of this :D
Also! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Dream as a foreshadow.

Have you ever heard something along the lines of a dream giving you an idea of something that may happen in the future?
I totally experienced something relating to this statement.
Last night, I had a dream that I tried turning on my car, and that it wouldn't start. I got up this morning early for work. When I got to my car, it wouldn't start. The battery was dead, and needed to be replaced.
I was upset, but I was freaked out by the foreshadow.
I was even more upset at the fact that the reason my battery went dead was because I left my phone charger plugged in overnight. Fml.
Also, this is the best thing I've ever read.
"Today I took my nine year old daughter to the dentist. After every appointment the kids get to choose a reward for being good. My daughter chose a Hannah Montana pencil. I was very disappointed until she said, "I chose this so that I can laugh maniacally while I sharpen her face off." I taught my daughter well. MLIA"

Have you ever had one of those moments where you wish you were in a completely sound proof room just so you could scream to the top of your lungs out of frustration?
I'm having one right now.
