Today was pretty hilarious

Yesterday, I was doing a section review in history class, and this happened:

HISTORY BOOK: The invasion of what country by the Soviet Union in 1979 potentially threatened the world's oil supplies in the Persian Gulf region?
ME: Wars limited to specific geographical areas.

I dunno how I could have misread the entire question. Yesterday, I would have bet you a statue of Waenya (for those of you new to my friendslist, she's this) made out of macaroni & cheese that the question was asking what limited wars are.

Fortunately, the other funny thing that happened today did not lower any of my grades in any way:

LYRICS TO SONG WE WERE SINGING IN CHAPEL: Bind us together, Lord, bind us together with chains that cannot be broken...
WHAT I THOUGHT MY BIBLE TEACHER WAS SAYING: Bind us together, Lord, bind us together with Lords that cannot be broken...

And yet the song also claims that there is only one Lord.

I accidentally fell asleep for nearly three hours after school. In other words, wasted the fact that I have no homework today. :(

My brain scrambles things like that too. When I'm tired, sick or otherwise distracted, I mix up left and right, and have to really stop and think about it to get them right correct.

History is first period for me, so I was obviously very tired. And if I try to do two section reviews assigned on the same day when I'm tired, I'm more likely to get an answer that's not left and be right wondering how I got it.

There are also many times when I can't understand even simple questions unless I repeat them to myself very slowly.

You should have come fishing! I was so bored, it would have been more fun with you there.

Well, that day was funny enough to make up for it.

Blurb

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
