At lunch, for some reason I was in this horrible irritated, antsy mood. I get like that occasionally, and I don't know why. It's usually just a big buildup of stress and the mood gets triggered by some annoyance, usually a small one, and I just want to go off by myself somewhere to cool down. I can't stand hearing people talking (usually it's kind of calming and soporific - I remember falling asleep listening to my parents talking in the hallway when I was really young), and everything annoys me. But at least the mood goes away easily, if I just play computer games or take a nap. Things have been rather stressful lately, but Halloween is almost here. I need to dye my hair purple either today or tomorrow. No idea how to go about doing it, but I'll try. Watch me end up dying my face and shoulders purple while my hair remains the same. I've wanted to dye my hair purple for at least 5 years now, and I figure now is the perfect time to do it. Plus, I'm going to be Delirium for Halloween. Her hair is constantly changing, but I'll settle for purple Ade-hair right now. And I don't think the guys will mind if the bathtub gets tinted purple. After all, I seem to be the only one who hates the pink sparkly shower curtain from last year, and the guys insisted on leaving it up. We'll just have a girly bathtub. Heh... reminds me of Emma's hair dye adventure at Alpha 2003...
Last night was kinda funny. Nick and I were in the main room, watching TV with the others, and he kept trying to touch my neck because he knows I can't stand it. So any time his hands got near my neck, I would growl and bite him. It was pretty funny and became a game. *poke* "GRARR!" *chomp* Nick thinks it's cute when I bite him. I wonder if his hands are covered in little teeth marks now.

First true friend: I don't know... I've had a lot of them.
First car: Echo!
First break-up: Never actually had one of those, but back in March when things were ambiguous with Nick, he told me he wanted to stop and just be friends and stuff... and then changed his mind like a month later when I had my sights on someone else.

First true love: What's "true" love anyway? I don't know. But Nick is my first love, anyway.
First enemy: Those mean boys on the bus in kindergarten through second grade that pulled my backpack, called me "Boogar," made fun of my height, and generally tormented the hell out of me. For some weird reason, it actually didn't really scar me though, except for maybe making me extremely self-conscious.

Last time wanting to die: just a fleeting thought of it sometime this week when things were piling up on me
Last time you scolded: I scolded someone? Maybe Nick at lunch, for not eating and not listening to me. The last time I got scolded... I don't know, it was probably by Deltron.
