So, I just watched this parody video about Twitter, and now I am going to share my views. 1.) People who say that it’s narcissistic to tweet don’t really understand the full extent of being able to tweet. Sure, some people only say what they’re doing, and everyone tweets the boring “I’m eating a sandwich” type thing now and then. But some people say really inspiring things on Twitter, and some people can use Twitter to express themselves. 2.) For a lot of people, including myself, the aforementioned “I’m eating a sandwich” thing isn’t tweeted because we think people care, it’s because we have fun saying mundane things like that. A few minutes ago, when I tweeted about the muffin I ate, did I think anyone would care? Hell no. But it was fun (well, that particular tweet wasn’t fun, it’s all of the tweeting overall that’s fun, if you see what I mean). 3.) People who think we should email friends or call them to see what they’re doing don’t see that we don’t specifically follow people to know what they’re doing. If one of my friends only said what she was doing all the time, and I didn’t care, I wouldn’t follow her. But I’m pretty sure every person I’m following has interesting tweets that relate to things I care about, not just what that person is doing. 4.) [this is more my opinion/my personal experience] Pretty much everyone who doesn’t see the point in Twitter seems to think that Twitter is the only way we communicate with our friends. They say we should call or email our friends to see how they’re doing instead of “following them on Twitter.” Well, yeah, I agree. And that’s why Twitter isn’t the only way I talk to my friends. I use Twitter AS WELL as email and talking on the phone and stuff like that. So, yeah, that’s my opinion. You may not agree with it, and that’s fine with me. I just get irritated when people don’t understand the way we use Twitter, they stick with the surface-level meaning and usage of tweeting. And it seems like there have been less parodies of Twitter and such since Twitter first became really popular, but they’re still there, so I feel it’s not too late to make this statement.

7th Grade Keepsakes

Today, I had to go through my entire closet. It sucked, but I found something that will probably be good for a laugh: the few things from 7th grade that I thought were worth keeping. Let’s see some of the things I did when I was twelve.

Thing #1: A valentine from my 3rd-grade buddy. Aw. It’s a white paper heart with an off-white, red-polka-dotted heart inside, with a heart-shaped random newspaper clipping in the middle.

Thing#2: A pretty good drawing of Hayley Williams, with special attention to her eyes and red-fading-to-blonde hair. I’ll probably post it on my DailyBooth later.

Thing #3: A page of “Original Doodles by Mercy,” including (will also be on DailyBooth):

  • a heart that says ‘Mercy Rocks’ inside of it,
  • a weird curly flowerish tree thing, a star that says ‘I love you’ and ‘heart’ inside of it,
  • a lily flower,
  • a heart which is actually a boy and a girl blob hugging and their bodies form a heart shape,
  • a lion with a happy flower for a head (it’s a dandelion, ha ha),
  • a smiling heart with a band-aid,
  • the word ‘love’ spelled out in flowers,
  • another weird curly flowerish tree thing, and
  • wavy lines radiating from a dot.

Thing #4: A second page of “Original Doodles by Mercy,” including (another DailyBooth thing):

  • the word ‘amazing’ written in curly letters with a swirly box around it,
  • a star with some stripes in it,
  • another heart that’s actually two blobs hugging,
  • swirls radiating from a dot,
  • a falling, fraying red ribbon (Think I might have been re-reading the Twilight series?),
  • a bendy straw,
  • a strange curly scribble tree,
  • a weird curly fence thing,
  • a flower with a falling petal (Called ‘When the Last Leaf Falls,’ which is weird because it’s the first leaf falling and it’s not a leaf.),
  • another heart with a band-aid,
  • a flower with thorns intentionally drawn very faintly (Called ‘Exterior.’ I was a deep, thoughtful twelve-year-old.),
  • a circle, cut into sixths, every section with a different pattern, and
  • a falling triangle.

Thing #5: A clippy magnet thing.

Thing #6: Two sample copies of letters to my teacher from the previous summer.

Thing #7: A 1/3″-thick extensive list of quotes (and my response to each quote) fromĀ Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller, The Call of the Wild by Jack London, Make Lemonade by Virginia Euwer Wolff, and Bull’s Eyes and Misfires: 50 People Whose Obscure Efforts Shaped the Civil War. Took me all summer.

Thing #8: A 3-page short story I wrote about a puppy mill owner. I will post it on my Tumblr.

Thing#9: A ‘Realidades Level One’ workbook. (For my Spanish course.)

Thing #10: A red PDA holder containing:

  • Four multicolored magnets,
  • A package of 1″ x 2″ post-it notes.
  • A faded, oval-shaped magnet with my school logo on it,
  • A very faded, star-shaped magnet with my name on it,
  • A piece of paper from sixth grade stating how I will divide a brownie between five of my friends, and
  • An orange piece of paper with a list of families to make on The Sims.

That’s it. That’s all I have from 7th grade.

Stop Me If I Told You Already….

I’m a nerdfighter. Being a nerdfighter changed my life. I think the turning point was July 23rd. John Green held a late-night BlogTV show. He signed party blowers for nerdfighters coming to a gathering the next day. That’s all the show was. John signing party blowers. But I found something special about it. I’m not sure what. But that doesn’t matter to me. All that matters to me is that my life changed. Not drastically. But it changed, and I feel different because of that BlogTV show.

I feel like a part of something. I feel like I’ve seen a little bit more of the world’s wonderful side. (It has a wonderful side, you know. No matter what the Westboro Baptist Church says.) I just feel good.

“You and Me”

It doesn’t matter how much I want us to be friends. It doesn’t matter how much she wants the same thing. Almost everything we say to each other is mean or annoying. She does it because I’m doing it. I do it because the annoying and mean things she does are things I can’t take. I just can’t take it. I feel like she doesn’t try to hold back. I feel like she doesn’t try to refrain. She just does it, whatever. I can’t do it. I can’t deal with everything she does. I get mad. I get so angry, I don’t think to control what I say to her. I say mean things I don’t mean, but they’re things that will let her know I’m angry. She takes it personally. I tell her to leave, she thinks my reasons are stupid. She doesn’t know how much she’s hurting me. I hurt her, and I feel awful, but I just can’t take it. That’s no excuse, but it’s a damn good explanation. I want to be her friend. But I want to be friends with the part of her that’s nice, funny, and not annoying or hurtful. And that’s only a fraction of who she is. I want it to work. I want to still be her friend. But I can’t be friends with the person she is most of the time. None of my friends can help. The only one who can is someone who’s sick of us fighting. I hurt all the time, but not just because of her. She only makes me worse. I don’t want to tell her I won’t be her friend. She’s been my friend for eleven years. But the person she’s becoming is a person I can’t get along with. I’ll miss her.

I think this through so much more than she does. She doesn’t care. She just wants to be my friend and hang out with me. I can’t just brush it off, I have to think about it and get angry and ask that she be nice. She doesn’t do things that way.

My Dream From Last Night

I was with Hayley G Hoover (, Kristina Horner (, some girl who knew Kristina and Hayley, and a guy who knew the three other girls well. We were all at a huge boarding school, and we all selled cigarettes. They charged $2 per cigarette most of the time, but at some special point in the day, they charged $10 per cigarette. I charged $1 normally, and $2 at that one time where cigarettes were more expensive. There was a concession stand at the school. One day I was selling cigarettes to a group of five or six guys, and I only charged them $1 per cigarette, even though I should have charged $2. Later that day, Kristina and I went back to our room (we all shared a big room), and we talked about how we didn’t want to sell cigarettes anymore, and Kristina had gained 150 pounds, even though she looked exactly the same as always. A couple hours later, we discovered that Hayley had been hiding in the closet, listening to our whole conversation. Hayley confessed that she was going to go to rehab and quit selling cigarettes. Then the other girl and guy appeared out of nowhere and agreed with Hayley. The whole time, there was a mob of people outside of our door. Apparently we were the big cigarette salespeople on campus.

Chameleon Circuit

Awesome band. Yeah. They’re coming out with a CD. Tomorrow. You can pre-order it right now. It’s $12 + shipping. Shipping’s $3. I’m going to buy it. I have enough money. I’ve been counting down the days until I can get this CD. I’m really excited. Do you know why I haven’t pre-ordered it yet?

Well, I found out when I could pre-order it. I already had the money, I was prepared. I figured I would borrow one of my parents’ PayPal account and pay them back with cash. Well, my dad doesn’t know his PayPal password. My mom didn’t have any money in the bank account she uses for PayPal. My grandmother was busy, I didn’t want to bother her, asking to use her PayPal.

Then I gave my mom the money and she put it in her bank account. Okay. Then we realize the wrong bank account is used for PayPal. That’s fine. We change the bank account. Apparently, we have to confirm the bank account. It’s going to take 2 – 3 days. That’s…fine. I’m starting to get really upset by this point. Well, 2 days later, I want to confirm the bank account by looking at in online. Well, it’s not letting me enroll for onlineness. Officially very angry.

The very best part, though? I just added a new debit card to the PayPal account and paid for the CD instantly. I could have done this 11 days ago and felt so much better this whole time. Well, I’m happy anyway. I hope I’ll get the CD by the time I get back to my mom’s house, where it’s going to be delivered.

Mission totally accomplished.

Wanted to take pictures to put up on Polyvore, and I need somewhere to put the pictures so I can import them.
