me facepalm


Dear Timmy,

I heard that Pluto is no longer a planet... why not? Who made that decision?

Dear Jim,

This has primarily to do with the fact that the first eight planets (with the exception of Earth, which is of course super-special) are all Roman gods, while Pluto is a cartoon dog. Poor Pluto never really fit in with the rest of the crowd. They let him hang around because they felt sorry for him, but there's no denying Pluto is just ... different.

An Original Poem by Me

By day we are protected by a net of blue to ward away the bugs,
By night our guardians are fireflies, hurtling through the nightsky at speeds unfathomable,
Should we escape our shroud, our knights will stay by our side
Reminding us of love by their warm sustaining glow
Guarded and Protected by these stewards; they keep up from grasping the immensity of the absolute,
We are never alone

Prac stress and uni worries

I've been spamming everyones friends pages today, and I apologise. It makes up for all those times you don't hear from me.

I received a phone call about half an hour ago that went a bit like this:

Me: hello, this is [Kat], I received a missed call from you just then.
Nina: oh hello, I've been trying to get a hold of you for today and yesterday.
Me: what for?
Nina: Well prac is on this week and you haven't been at school
Me: WHAT!?

Followed by me trying not to cry in complete shock, and being horrified that I've missed out on the first two days! We chatted about it, and my mobile phone is not terribly reliable. But I'm a bit confused as to why she didn't use my home number or email me. These are other completely legitimate ways of contacting me these days! Anyway, because I did the unit last year and passed my pracs (I just failed my assignments, not the pracs, but I have to pass both to pass), then hopefully if I bomb out completely on this because the timing is terrible, then hopefully we can sort something out with last year's prac results. HOPEFULLY!

I would very much appreciate everyone's prayer in this. I'm totally stressed out, and when I get this stress, I want to yell and rant. But that's never helped me in the past. So I just need to chill out and get over it...

Part of getting over it is talking about it. But not in a ranty way.

I'm mostly stressed that I'm going to be missing out on Japanese. Jap is so very important for me, and I've been doing my best to work towards a HD for the end of the year. I've already missed out on a bunch of classes thanks to the Myer training.

*stress* I have a horrible feeling in my stomach, and I totally don't want to do this prac. But I'll talk to the prac supervisor tomorrow and try to work something out.
