I have to go to a stupid NHS induction ceremony tonight.
I TRIED explaining to my mom that getting recognized isn't important to me, and that it's meaningless to walk across a stage in front of hundreds of parents who couldn't care less about me to shake the hands of people who only think they have something to do with my success in academics.
and i TRIED explaining to her that it's mortally humiliating for me to get dressed up for the event, and look like a fat colorful blob in the process.
and i TRIED explaining to her that i don't want to go, and that the only thing i care about is being able to put NHS on my college applications.
but she says that it would be embarrassing for her to not go. she thinks that if i get recognized, she is also getting recognized.
it pisses me off. it's my accomplishment, so i should be able to sit home in my pajamas and eat cookie dough ice cream if i want to, while other kids get their 10 seconds of glory. i don't CARE about it. i don't WANT it. i hate public award event things.
in deciding what i should wear, i decided to go with the longer skirt, so i won't have to shave my legs as much.
i'm pretty much pathetic.
put the italicized in the past-tense and it's still true. i already went.
okay. in OTHER news. my dad started a forest fire today.
i make it sound more dramatic than it actually is, so let me explain. he was trying to .. i don't know. burn.. away.. dead grass, or something? and apparently it got out of control. our neighbor called the fire department, and while i was recieving an NHS pin that i don't even know how to work, there was a raging fire being extinguished at my house.
i miss all the action.
grass and trees are burned in a sizable circumfrence in our backyard. i think it's pretty funny, but my dad feels really guilty about it, so i'll lay off making fun of him for it.
