I'm tired. Even though I slept more than ten hours (I went to bed around 11:30, woke up around 9:45), I can't seem to stop yawning. All I want to do now—all I have the brain power to do at the moment—is to read my friends list, go to the library, and read. And post on LJ, of course. Can't go a day without posting on LJ, can I?

I really should be writing, though. My Camp Rock oneshot seems to be calling my name, but I'm ignoring it. I should be writing it, considering my readers over at FFnet will kill me if I don't write something sometime, but I can't bring myself to be bothered. I guess it's a combination of my writer's block (I can't seem to write more than a few paragraphs of story at a time) and my procrastination (I don't want to write more than a few paragraphs of a story at a time), and if I don't get rid of both of them at the same time, I probably won't be writing.


So does anyone have any quick ways to get over writer's block and procrastination at the same time? If you do, I'll love you forever!


It seems like my post on abortion last night encouraged a few people to comment. I appreciate that more than you can imagine—although I'm a procrastinator and don't often comment back, I love it when you guys let me know your opinions on what I'm saying.

Abortion is a very controversial subject for a lot of people, but it's nice to see that people with vastly different views on the issue can debate civilly and intelligently with each other. I've gotten into some harsh, throwing-barbs-back-and-forth-at-each-other debates before, but this time, it wasn't like that. Once more, I appreciate you all so much, I can hardly believe it.

*hugs friends*


I heard that Obama chose Biden for his running mate. Does anyone have any neutral information about Obama/Biden/McCain that I can read? Although I obviously can't vote, I'm interested in the whole race, and I want to look at things from both perspectives. I'm disillusioned with McCain at the moment, so I want to know more about him, to see if I want to continue "supporting" him. Also, is there any more information on Obama I can read? And Biden, 'cause he's the one I know the least about?

Thanks for any help on that—politics is muchly intriguing, and I wanna know more, more, more.


And this is probably the last thing I'm going to ask you guys to do for me in this post, but do any of you have any quick, easy reads to recommend? When I go to the library, I want to get a few books that are quick and easy to read, but the only author that's coming to mind is Tamora Pierce, and I'm planning on taking out a few of her books when I go to the library.

Again, thanks for the help. :)

A lot of things have happened so far today and, considering I have to head to youth group in about forty-five minutes, a lot more things are probably going to happen today. However, I might be so tired when I get back from youth group I might not have time to post, so I decided to try and get this one finished before I have to go. I might succeed, I might not.

Let's see.

The first thing I did today was get a bit more of my Camp Rock oneshot (tentatively titled I'm Sorry, named after the song "Sorry" by the Jonas Brothers) done, although I have a lot more to do. Then, I emailed my best friend and asked if she wanted to hang out today.

She did. Around 1:30, we headed out. We didn't have a set plan—it was more of a spontaneous hey, let's go out and wander around downtown since we haven't done anything this summer sort of deal, and it was fun. We caught up on a lot of things we'd missed during the summer and recced some books for each other to read (my best friend recommended all of the Tamora Pierce books, which I'll get to soon, and I recommended The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, the Twilight saga, and maybe a few more, I can't remember). We also ordered some ice cream, hung out downtown, and sat next to a giant anchor. It was fun, although probably not as "wild" as some other people in my grade's idea of a fun time might've been.

I also tried wheedling her into getting an LJ, so hopefully she'll email me with her URL so that we can friend each other. And if she friends me, I can urge her to post here, so that'll be fun. I'm interested to see how she'll react to my posting here pretty much every single day. *grin*

In a few days, I expect to have her on my F-list, so that'll be fun. We can't hang out during school anymore, sure, but who says we can't hang out over the Internet? (And outdoors, too!)


And in case you didn't want to read all that, let me make a long story short:

If you want to make abortions less common, don't make them harder to get. Instead, make them less necessary. Teach abstinence and contraceptives in schools. Don't limit yourself to abstinence. Tell kids what they need if they don't want to have sex and what they need if they do.

In my opinion, that's the only way.

My best friend is transferring to another school.

My other best friend is going to be in college prep classes, which is a step down from the AP classes that I'm going to be taking.

I bet you can guess what that means.

It means that I won't have any close friends in my classes. I'm friendly with pretty much everyone in my grade, to be sure, but I don't have anyone that I'd spend time with—we can get along well enough in school, but would they want to eat lunch with me? No. Would they understand my crazy obsessiveness with writing? No. Would they understand when I told them about my life?

Nope, of course not.

My family keeps saying that I should try and make some more friends, but the fact is... I'm going into high school. There's room for a fresh start, but how much of a fresh start can I get? Half the people in my grade are popular and seem to dislike me, and the other half don't care either way about me. I'm going to try and make more friends—of course I will—but it won't be the same.

Geez, I feel so selfish for wishing my friend wouldn't go to the new school. 


Is it normal to want my friend to come to my school just so that I didn't feel like such an outcast, even though she'd be turning down a really awesome opportunity?
