I had a horrible stomach virus this morning. Spent the whole damn morning hoping that I would puke my brains out so I would get better. Obviously, never went to school.

Guess what day just happened to be today.

Senior Ditch Day.

Now the teachers from the 4 classes I had today all think I ditched. Isn't that special? Now I have to bring in my Mom to let them know I was legitimately sick, so they don't punish me. Because I know for a fact that two of my teachers were going to have assignments worth major points on senior ditch day.

Anyone else have anything this ridiculously unlucky happen to them?

Man, that sucks...
But think on the good side, at least your mom saw you sick and will go there to talk to them.
Imagine if she didn't and wouldn't go there to help you?
Oh that would be much worse.

Man, that's nothing. I got in a ****ing fender bender on Friday. Lady cut me off then stopped right in front of me so she wouldn't hit the truck that was in front of her. I'm trying to merge left a lane and I didn't see her. She hit it anyway though, since I rear-ended her.

Now I have to go to court. Hopefully they'll give me traffic school so it won't go on my record. The lady filled a claim and now my insurance will go up, and I'll probably have to pay this big ass deductable out of my pocket. Screwed ****ing over.

Thankfully though my car has so little damage that I don't even need to have it fixed. Her back bumper was a bit messed up though.

I woke up with a terrible headache. I been getting them alot, they feel like hangover head aches, only i'm not drinking. Went to the doctor's today, and it turns out they are either tension headaches, or I need to get my eyes checked again.

It's a universal law that the crazier you are for a girl, the crazier they'll get the longer you know them. I can express it in a simple algebraic formula, actually: interest x Time = Ass-kicking and pain for ET.

One semester left in my Undergrad College Career...

Undergrad? I take it you're going to go for Graduate then, right? In which case, have a good 4-6 years of fun-filled sleepless nights and countless suicidal thoughts and seeing your self-esteem plummet out right through the window that tempts you like a succubus.

Good job...

If you like hardcore giraffe pornography, then by all means declare it a "good job." I'm sure it pays well, considering there's very little supply of actors who's perform the genre.

I might give you the crazy formula, that sounds about par for the course with my experiences with women.

However, it's only 2 more years of grad school to pick up a masters degree, the tuition of said graduate schooling will be paid for by my job. Which, contrary to popular belief, does not involve giraffes.

Ergo, suck it. :p

That does really suck though, Bongo. I remember ditching on my Sr. Ditch day, but that's because high school was for suckers! :D

Something similar once happened to me:

I got sick on the 5th of July once, and had to call into my job to tell them I wouldn't be in for the morning shift. They gave me such a hard time, not believing I was genuinely ill and not just hungover, and insisted I get in. I hadn't even been partying the night before at all.

Fortunately, it was my second job at the time, and I really didn't like it all that much. I told them to stuff it and quit.

The place (Bradlee's) went out of business a couple of years later thanks to Wal*Mart moving in just down the street. Didn't hurt my feelings much...

Oh yes... I can see that some of us are very lucky... But that doesn't include me.
I've been chasing a girl I'm crazy about it has like 4-5 months...
Oh yeah... That's a touchy subject there..
Well, like I always say when I hear things like that, at least someone has to be happy in the huge world.

Ah, tension headaches suck. Did you strain your neck or shoulders or did they just start happening? I got a concussion last February from snapping my head into the boards while playing ice hockey. The doctor told me they were tension headaches and that I might need therapy to help them go away. But I never did do therapy but took lots and lots of ibuprofen. It took about a month and a half till the headaches went away. All I can say is hang in there, they eventually get better.

Oh and my headphones broke, so no iPod. Luckally I found this giant pair so I can still listen.

If you mean the ones that come with the iPod then good riddance. Those things suck anyways. Get a pair of Sennheiser PX100s, you won't regret it.

No. Earbuds are my worst enemy. They hooked around my ears and the sound was really good.

I'm scared to get expensive headphones though, cause I go through headphones like Elizabeth Taylor goes through husbands.

Ave, they come with a 2 year warranty, so even if they do break, you get em fixed right away :)

Plus the cord is Kevlar re-enforced, so your cord can take a bullet :p

EDIT: Tyrion is right, it was for truancy.

Senior Ditch Day.

I was off work yesterday because of a fever I'd had the night before and everyone's ****ing convinced I skived the day. This is me who hasn't been off sick for two years, when most people at my place average 5-10 days a year. Barstools.

I even went in at 6 this morning (Sat) to catch up, and because I wasn't at death's door 24hrs later the cynical folks are then super-cynical.

+ + +

Anyhow, what's Senior Ditch Day? Is that like "Playing The Nick Day"? I'd be chuffed if someone had the same idea as me (doesn't happen often :xp: )

I was sick during a day I had a final exam last week. I still had to go. I was very uncomfortable, but, eh. I also got screwed over on my Physics final. Oh well. I guess I got it lucky since I bought a nice TV for me room. :)

Blackout, Senior Ditch day is just the day that all the seniors get together and ditch. My classes that are all seniors, according to the teachers, were almost empty, with no more that 6 kids in a class that normally has 30+ students.

I recently had a lot of bad luck, on Friday to be exact.

Well, after 2 months of consideration I decided to start playing World of Warcraft again, so I went and bought the expansion pack "The Burning Crusade" on Friday.

When I try to install it I get two error messages at 79%, I try cleaning the 4th disc (which seemed to be the problem) and nothing worked. Then I tried copying all the contents of the four discs in to a separate folder and installing it from there. Which did indeed work, after 3 hours of trying to figure out the problem.

So I played it up until about 9PM when my graphics card apparently got overheated and ****ed up the screen to a wonderful heaven of messed up pixels. So today I had to buy a new GFX card. Meh.

I guess something is trying to prevent me from playing World of Warcraft. :p

Lol, i went over a wet and muddy field on my new bike... (see: Very good things!)

Now, what kind of idiot decides to put a manhole cover in the middle of a field?!?! And it was wet! needless to say, floor met ass, and i gotta wash my bike, seeing as it decided to keep half of the field what within every darn nook and cranny.

I hate the fact that no matter how many times I ask my mom to make me an appointment at the DMV she always forgets to make one. I'm ready to call them myself and try and set one up, but I get the feeling they'll be ass****s about it because I'm still a minor. Once I get my license I can get a Job and help out my parents financially, but until they help me out just by scheduling the test and taking me down to the DMV I can't.
