And I'm sick, so I don't think I'll be going back tomorrow... But my mom said she'd drop my homework off tomorrow, so I don't have to worry about that not being handed in, and I'll miss the beginning of writing our Research Papers in English, so I'll be behind the class, but I'm a pretty fast writer, I'm writing a very familiar topic, and I have a prep that I can go in on and finish writing, so I don't mind.
Usually, I always have my iPod for school too. I lost that three weeks ago. But I haven't even bothered looking for it yet, so it could be easy to find... then again, I cleaned my room and never saw it... It must be somewhere else in the house. XD Or on the bookshelves I haven't organized, or under/behind my bed. I'll look tomorrow.
I got all of my homework done, which is really good. I honestly never expected to get here.
Soon, I have to start preparing for exams, I have one in English and one in Biology. I think they'll both be easy, though. I remember most of everything we learned.
According to a Facebook friend of mine, today is J.R.R. Tolkien's birthday. That's pretty cool. I started reading the Lord of The Rings books a while ago, and stopped midway through the first book (something I'm horrible for doing) because I got new books and wanted to read them. I have at least 20 books that I am half finished, and another 80 or so to read. And about 10 missing, or at my cousins. I probably have about 6 of her books here too. In total I have about 210 books, and desperatly need a new bookshelf, mine just don't fit them all, and I am planning on getting more soon. I love books. I love reading too, but I never have time for it anymore. Same with writing. They're two of my most favourite things, and I don't have time for either. I actually spend a lot of my free time playing Chess and Minesweeper.... Oh and just thinking, which I can literally do for hours, or all day, and not get bored for one second.
But reading and writing are more productive than thinking, usually.
My favourite series is the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine. Myrnin's my favourite character!
The series is about a 16 year old prodigy named Claire Danvers who goes to Texas Prarie University to get adjusted to university life before heading off to bigger and better schools, but she ends up knowing too much, and learning all of the towns secrets, such as the vampires, and getting too involved in the town and is forced to become a member and live there. Myrnin, by the way, is Claire's mad scientist boss, who happens to be a vampire.
I also like the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series by Michael Scott, the Night World series by L.J. Smith, The Forbidden Game by L.J. Smith, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Crank and Impulse (the only ones I've read so far) by Ellen Hopkins, Go Ask Alice by "Anonymous," Prey by Lurlean McDaniel, Remember Me by Christopher Pike, The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx, Cut by Patricia McCormick (probably spelled that wrong).
Those are my favourites that I can think of right now, there are more though.
There are also tons more books that I really want to read, like Shiver, Willow, Wintergirls, Hilary Duff's book, Fallen, and a bunch of others. I don't know the authors names though...
Johnny was here again today. After he left I was worried about him not driving home safely; I read earlier on Facebook that the rode he lives on isn't in a very good condition, but I think he's a safe driver, he always seems to be, and hopefully he is. And they road he lives on, well, it's a "Highway" but it is much more of a road. My school's on that road, all three of the school's I've been to are, actually, and my father's house is, and well, lots of houses.
I didn't get to sleep until 4:00 or later this morning, and I got up at 10:34 I think. I had a bad dream the night before, so I was worried about having on again last night, so I was afraid to sleep. This happens to me more than I'd like to admit. I love sleeping, but I'm also terrified of it too. I've had nightmares my entire life, it used to be nightly, and now it's every few weeks, but when I have them, I usually have them for several nights in a row. Almost all of them are about wild animals too. They've always been about wild animals, ever since I started having them when I was six.
I used to hear coyotes howling at night when I lived with only my mom in the house my father now lives in. No one else ever heard them. I could never sleep alone when I was younger. I either slept with my mom, or shared a room with Brady when at my fathers. I honestly stopped sleeping with my mom whenever possible in Grade 9 or 10. In my fathers house, I've always had to sleep alone, and that was horrible. I was terrified every night. I still hate sleeping there alone. When at my mothers, I can sleep alone, but I prefer either a human or my cat Jacob to be with me. I also sleep with a blanket I've had since I was six and a night light on, and last night the tv on a childrens station, in case I woke up in the middle of the night, so I'd wake up to Rollie Pollie Ollie rather than monsters that are only in my mind.
If it weren't for the coyotes howling when I was six, I don't think I'd be this afraid, and they are still the main thing that scares me about night time. But apparently as a toddler, I'd tell my mom I used to always see an old man in my room at night, and my father's house is thought to be haunted by an old family friend who lived there before we bought it. He died there. I know some people are skeptical, or don't believe in ghosts, but I do, and I think it's completely possible that the place is haunted, I don't fear Richard, the man who lived there, though. My whole family believes it's haunted too. It was also apparently a small hospital or something a long time ago, so apparently a lot of people died in it then, and my grandfather passed away there as well.
I really do like the house, but I'm terrified there at night, or when I'm alone. I grew up in that house, it's the first house I've ever lived in, and one of my parents has always lived there since my birth. My grandmother and aunt both lived there as well, when my aunt was my age.
Anyways, I did not at all expect to write any of what I just wrote, and I'm going to go now, and hopefully soon go to sleep.
