I did vote for them :D I really hope that they win, they do so much good! Better than a lot of other types of charities...
They don't, they have just been/lived together for that long. It's so stupid, I don't know why anyone really CARES about it. If they don't like gay marriage, then don't get one! Bah. It is just silly.
So, what other nerdfighter stuff are you into? I like Doctor Who :P
Do you like Renee? And I'm sorry to hear about the fight, I'm sure it will all work out, it usually does :) My parents are kinda a part of my life. More so my father than my mother, my mother has tons of addiction problems and mental issues that she needs to work through. My dad is remarried and they have 3 children who are much younger than me (the littlest is 13 years younger). I love them all dearly.
I am quite the HP fan haha :D I am getting so excited for DH p1 to come out that I've already started making plans with people. I assume you are too, considering the HPA banner you have going on :D
Hey Mae! :)
You are not alone! I am in the custody of my great great aunt and her partner who have been together for 51 years :) They are absolutely wonderful and I love them to death. My younger sister lives with us too, she is almost 12. What is your story?
I really really really really sorry again,I know you said it's ok,but I still fell awfal.I'm the kind of person that will buy a bunch of flowers on a bin because I took a dead one of it,or send a happy birthday message twice because I was going to give the present on the day before but didn't until the achal day (both things I've done)
My mum's started teaching at a school placement as part of her teacher training programe.I've been given like a card thing to be signed to say if I'm late for register or don't give homework in on time (both of which I'm very bad at) and I fogot it once and now my mum's saying that if I don't improve then she's gonna stop be going to choir and violin lessons and doing gcse music,which makes me sad because music is my life,but also because I have a mother that wants me to be perfect,that's what upset me the most.
Mum and dad didn't get a divorce in the end.I don't really know what happened with that,but it's my mum's buissnes,not mine.
I'm getting to do the gcse's I want,which is good.Still have no idea how I got into art,though.
There's been a lot of stuff going on with first love and all that :P basicly,I fell in Love with a guy,and then my best friend did,then they went out,and he started being a jerk to her like he was to me,then she found out she has cancer and has until the age of 21 to live.But I got over him,which is good.But I'm worried for my friend.She's got over him to,but there's still something there,which I compleatly understand.I don't know what to do.
I hope your good.I've missed talking to you.
I'm really sorry I haven't talked for so long!God,I feel terrable.I'm sorry,but there was a lot of stuff going on with my GCSE options,and then my parents are possably getting divorced,but the're staying together as a coupple,and then my aunt came round and we had a 'clear up' of the house that didn't go anywhere,and my mum got depressed and had another attack in the pancrious,so I never really got round to some things.Again,I'm so so sorry!I'm a bad person.But now I've chosen my GCSE's,so that's out of the way,and coursework dosn't get serious until next year,so I'll be on here,though not as much as usal.
Angain,I'm sosososososo sorry.An I fogiven?
Your welcome. I'm glad you know how awesome the majority of Nerdfighters and I'm glad the discussion didn't turn you away from the site altogether. Also, I admire your ability to overcome something like Dyslexia. I've known anyone else personally with it, but I have a small understanding of how hard it must be.
I saw your discussion about not fitting in on the ning, and was going to leave this comment there, but it kind of turned into a debate kind of thing. I apologize for that, even though I didn't post anything, I still feel a little guilty that your discussion feel victim to it.
Anyways, the ning really is an awesome place. Its just because of the amount of members, everyone has a different opinion about "how far is to far" and they want to express it. Which is fine, except sometimes it gets out of hand.
Anyways, I felt a little bit like I think you do (I can only imagine, but I think its similar) when I first joined the ning. I was a little bit scarred to join into the conversations because it was already so big and I wasn't sure how easily it would be to make friends here. But eventually I just started joining groups and commenting on discussions and met a lot of really awesome people.
I don't know if that last paragraph helped at all, but the best advice I can give is to ignore the haters on here, and chat with the made of awesome people... because in my experience their's a lot of made of awesome people.
Other than that, how are you? I probably should have introduced myself at the beginning... Oh well, better late then never. I'm Tenley, I'm 18 from Virginia and an Psychology/English major. I like reading/writing/drawing/music/and Youtube vlogging. Um... I think that's it. If you want to know anything else, just ask, and I'll let you know.
I chickend out of NaNoWriMo :( It was strange,I was fine,and the pep talk email made me nevorus :P But I WILL do it next year.
I really like plays sort of for the same reason you don't.I like visuliseing how the set might look,how everything looks.I don't see any differance between books and plays,but with books it's apsolute.With a play,5 diffrent people could perform it and you could get 5 diffrent shows.
My grandparents are going to spain tomurrow,and my dads coming round for the week,but I will either be at school or on the computer most of the time,so that will be fine.I might be able to watch all the vlogbrothers videos :)
I just looked for the audio books for you,but no luck.I think that a while ago they made one for paper towns for a compotion,but I don't think they sold it afterwords.
Anywho,we have GCSE's options to take.I have to take chemisary,phisics,biology,english litreture,english language,maths,french or german and religous education.If History,Geography and religous studies don't come under optional,I'm takeing them,music,art and something,and if they do,I'm takeing music,RS,and history.Unless I get a good grade in art,then I don't know what the hell I'm takeing.I don't see why we can't just take what we want,and then do the exams to what we feel we can :P
I've been reading a lot more recently,and playing violin more,and listening to music more.I don't know how that works,but yeah.I've been listen to a lot of nevershoutnever,TAB the band,Tom Milsom and They Might Be Giants.I have the strangest music taste you will ever see (can you see music taste?)
I have become slowly more ovbsessed with twitter,it's mental.
And I think I'm turning into a typical teenager,and I have started to care about what people think of me D:
I Talk (type?) to you to much,I could make blog posts out of my comments to you :)
Wow you've been through a lot recently,we've just had teachers nagging about exams.I thought you wernt talking either because you couldn't or you didn't want to,if you couldn't,me making a fuss wouldn't help,and if you didn't want to,I wasn't going to force you to :)But I'm glad that it wasn't that.
Only thing happen to me recently worth telling is that I finaly read one of Johns books.I live in England so the only one out that I can go out and buy is Looking for Alaska,and buy it I did!I loved it,it was (no other word for it,) awsome,espeshally the whole great prehaps bit.I'm going to try NaNoWriMo this year,and mabie script frenzy.I think you should give it a go to.It's the same consept as NaNoWriMo,a month to write a play in April,and it looks like you enjoy doing that.It must be great to see it being produced and put on.I might see my dad again over the summer,witch will make it 3 times in the past....9 years,I think.I would never say this to my mum,but I kind of hate him.It's an irationl hate,but it's still there,but I would never say because he's the only thing that makes my mum juenuenly happy,and happy for herself,not for someone else.Why can't we just love who we ove and be done with it?Only other things are,I'm going to see Wicked,wich is great,and it's a school trip so it's not as expansave,one of my fillings fell out,so I have to go to the dentist,and I discoverd I can't draw a picachu :)
Serously?Soy may cause canser?I really don't get why everyone panics when someone mentions canser (me being the not-so-greatly-informed 12 year old that has the memory of a gold fish) we have the option to take a vacsine that will block two things that combined has a 40% chance of causeing breast canser that may be carried by some guys who may pass it onto you if you have sex.My mum said it was my choise,but when I said I didn't want it (my last experance with neidles left me with a massive rash tipe thing,and a pain thats been comeing and going for the last 6 years) she said I shoud.I really don't want to,there are a lot of variables,your going to meet a guy that has both,your going to have unprotected sex with the guy (and I would really try not to do that,my fear of childbirth is only toped by my fear of falling),that it would pass onto you,and that it would develop into breast canser.Alot of things need to be right (or wrong) for it to happen.But I'm haveing them anyway,all 3 of them :(
Why are aunts allways telling us we are skinny?I don't know why,but I get offended if anyone calls me skinny,but people don't understand why I get so annoyed because they normally mean it in a nice way.I reamber a friend of mine told me I was as slow as a tourtice (because my mum keeps them,and a lot of the 6 year olds were faster then me) and I told him they were achally quite fast,then he told me I was as fat as one,and I turned my head to hide my smile,and I think he thought I was upset,so he told me he was jokeing.
I don't really like plain soy milk,but I love the vilina ones.For some reason I hate chocolate flaveored things,even though I love chocolate.I'm weird.
Telling you to DFTBA would be a waiste of DFTBA's.
I never made my point about the 'lacking nutrents' story,did I? :P
I really want to be a Veagan,but if I did I think all I would eat and drink would be bread,soy milk(=love) and water,that is really how bad my eating problem is.My aunt has tried to get me to eat more food,and she keeps going on about eating meat.My mum has told her I don't want to,as a personly chouse,but she keeps saying 'Well why don't you try it and see if you like it,and if you don't then you don't have to eat it anymore' she dosn't seem to realise that it's more then that.Then she said that I needed to put on weight,and that is why I needed to eat meat,but I have a group of friends that I mainly talk to at the train station (I have to get the train home from school),and I think I'm the 3rd heavest,and I'm the youngest there by at least 6 mounths.
Anyway,whats been going on with you?I say on the HPA pen-pals thing that your un-schooled,so you don't have the wrorry of finding all your books and all you PE (Gym,whatever) kit (that reminds me that I need to do all that :P)
Trust me,You NFTBA.
Since I didn't before,heres my reply!
It's really anoying when people are mean about spelling,I don't see the point of it,I know my situaion is diffrent to yours,I just can't spell at all (I spend to much memory on songs and chourds,who would you rather know at a gathreing,someone who could paly all of Hanks songs?Or someone who can spell all the words in Paper Towns?),but It's annoying all the same.I really hate how people act to dissabilites,not just the people that are mean,the people who are nice for no reason.I'm gonna sound really bad,I won't juge someone if all I know about them is that they have dissabilities,so I won't be mean to them,but I don't get why you have to be nice to someone if again thats all you know about them.If someone with dissabillites was a real asshole,I'm not going to be nice to them,am I?But it's more then that,I don't know how to explain....
Anywho,I know how you mean with the whole 'your body is lacking nutrents' thing,I have an eating problem,and I didn't eat meat then,but then me and my mum were driveing past a feild of lambs (I was about 9) and I pointed them out and mum said about something like 'yep,and their going to be eaten' or something like that.She didn't say it to be mean,shes allways very honest,I knew about sperm and eggs WAY before anyone else in my class (thats a weird to announce :)) so I knew she wasn't jokeing,then we went accros the road to visit a friends farm,and I asked if the animals were bread for meat,and I don't think he wanted to tell me because the last time I was there I was crying a lot about a lamb that had to be shot because it was to small (I even ofered to take it home) but he said yes and from then on I didn't eat meat (though I didn't eat it in the first place)
