Free Lunch #37 (“Happy” Fish Edition)

Hello there you happy fish. I want you to know that this is the one of the first few image results for “happy fish”.

I guess he does look happy. But more like a forced happy, like the kind that clowns at birthday parties have to put on to amuse the children. Anyways, back to Free Lunch. It’s been a really long time (2+ weeks) since I’ve posted a Free Lunch, but we’re back now! If you don’t know what Free Lunch is, basically, I just sit down with a device for 5 minutes and write as much as I can before I am out of time.

I’ll be starting at 5:31.

Now it begins. What begins, you might ask? If you did ask, I would be inclined to tell you that it’s Free Lunch. You already knew that, this was just filler. MWHAHAHA.

In meaningful or at least slightly thought poking news, we didn’t have too much work in our classes today. This was very welcome, as I was able to accomplish absolutely nothing in the free time I had for finishing early. Literally all I did was write the introduction to this post (fish and all), leave it, and play Santale and Bad Time Simulator for the rest of the time.

We still don’t have a band teacher, and the substitute got angry at me for correcting her. Ever since she was hired she’s been trying to get us to do non-band stuff in band. She had wanted us to write Haikus, and put that Haikus were 7-5-7 syllables…

I can’t wait until she’s gone. Though she did redeem herself slightly by letting me play Trumpet in the back room, I still don’t like her very much.

My time is up for this Free Lunch. I’m sorry that it was a little on the short side, but hopefully it retained your attention nonetheless.

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post :1

Hydration and The Eclipse

Hello there you paper rabbits.

Before I start talking about any of the topics highlighted in the title, first I’d like to apologize for not posting at all these last few days. As much as i’d like to offer the excuse that i’ve been really busy with school, the truth is that I really haven’t. I’ve just been lazy and uninspired. However! Now i’m back, and taking into consideration school and everything else, I can safely say there will be at least 2 posts outside of Free Lunch every week. I know this is a bit of a downgrade from the everyday posting, but that turned out to be kind of a disaster, resulting in a lot of filler posts and draining me creatively. So yeah, i’m sorry.

Now, on to the main post!

I’ll start with hydration day. Yesterday, as you probably know, was August 20th! Before I start throwing around some complex numbers, first think of how much 8 sounds like H. Now. Focus on this.

Eight Two Oh

Aitch Two Oh

8:20

H:20

Now that you have been enlightened, know that for me, yesterday was 8/20. So on 8/20 at 8:20PM, Brendan, Saoirse and I each drank an entire bottle of water in one minute.

After that, I felt a little like I was about to explode, BUT IT WAS ALL WORTH IT LOOK!

ANDREW HUANG NOTICED ME!

Given that he is one of my favorite Youtubers, this cheered me up considerably. For reference, he is the person who originally made that song “PINK FLUFFY UNICORNS DANCING ON RAINBOWS”. While I don’t particularly like the song, he still does lots of other amazing musical stuff.

Today was the day of the American Eclipse. I got to experience it at a college, where we got free chairs, food , and water. I took a few pictures with the glasses over the lens of my phone camera (without during totality), and even though they didn’t turn out too well, it’s still a good enough momento for me, along with the glasses.

Totality.

Totality also.

Not totality.

Slightly warped and also not totality.

Due to the eclipse, there was a large influx of people from around the world and country who came to Nashville, so I haven’t been getting any reception the entire day.

This post is made possible by Iverson’s generosity in giving me a log in for the xfinitywifi hotspots. Thank you Iverson.

That’s all for this post, thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom :0

School Saga · Writings

School Saga #1

Hello there you Sheldon Coopers. Today was the first day of school for everyone writing on this blog currently. I can’t speak for them, but I can say that my overall feel from today was that this year is going to be more chaotic than ever. To start things off, my homeroom is Math, with a teacher I have heard is bad, but doesn’t seem as bad as she was made out to be originally. There are a ton of new students in class with us, and that was one of the most interesting things about today.

BUT.

SOMETHING WAS AMISS AS SOON AS I STARTED PAYING ATTENTION TO MY SCHEDULE.

My band teacher from last year’s name wasn’t listed. Instead of Deaver, it said RAY! In case you were wondering, Ms. Deaver was the best band teacher of all time, and finding out that she isn’t going to be here this year was not a fun way to start the day. On top of that I was sitting by an annoying person almost the whole day, who kept being a jerk. On the bright side however, my friend Jett is joining us this year in our school. This is significant because last year he was home schooled.

Just like last year, I will take the city bus home everyday this year. Today I got on my normal bus and everything was going as it usually does. But then! The bus broke down while I was about halfway to my destination, and I had to leave it and catch the next bus at a nearby bus stop.

That’s pretty much everything I have to say for today, so thanks for reading these perfect three hundred words if you have 😀

how to: cure the school supply messiness epidemic

hOI!

I know, one post after another…kind of unheard of for me!

But, I had something else that I’d like to talk about.

At around 10 PM last night, I got an unexpected burst of energy, and immediately took to all the Target bags in my room that I had been too lazy to touch before.

And what I had spent nearly 2 hours doing was organizing my entire backpack for school all from an impulse decision. School doesn’t start until Monday.

I’m kinda weird like that.

Actually, call me crazy, I love school supply shopping and getting things ready to go to school. (lemme know in the comments if you are the same way!)

There’s just something about starting a whole new year, getting whole new things…now that I really think about it in depth, I think it may be because i’m someone who likes the fresh start, clean slate feeling.

But wow, I didn’t just pick random folders and notebooks, I had a color theme, and a certain aesthetic. Literally all my school supplies (excluding the hole-puncher I got because i thought it was a stapler which was navy blue, my mini stapler that I will take which is teal, and my planner has some navy in it) are black and white with cool tumblr-esque designs, and it’s just pleasing to look all organized.

But then I know that every single thing I own will be a complete trashy mess by the end of the year, because I typically am a messy person, which contradicts the part of my attitude WHERE I LIKE TO ORGANIZE.

Also, since I’m a sentimental freak (oh my god, I will not throw anything away if it reminds me of a memory), I have kept all my binders and such SINCE 3RD GRADE. I mean, I don’t blame myself because it’s really entertaining to look at all my Warrior Cat/American Girl doll sketches when I was in 4th grade, or my ripped apart 5th grade binder that I attempted to decorate with fashion tape.

Every single year, I tell myself, “this is the year I will be organized.”

Then, laziness takes over me and I throw more than half the stuff that’s supposed to go in the binder INTO MY HOMEWORK FOLDER, CAUSING IT TO FALL APART ONLY A LITTLE BIT INTO THE YEAR.

But now, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and not use a fabric binder, and instead use a smaller, more convenient file organizer.

And I have an inkling that I will extremely regret it, BUT AT LEAST I CAN SAY THAT I REALLY TRIED.

I wish I could say everyone falls victim to the school supply messiness epidemic, but an awful lot of my friends have beautifully organized binders all year round so…

But those of you desperately trying to not be messy (like me!), these first steps may get you closer to being a little more organized when it comes to your school supplies.

  • Use a fabric binder. Trust me, these can’t fall apart from your messiness, and they will make your binder look more clean, even if it isn’t. They also have a shoulder strap and lots of room inside.
  • Make sure NOT TO KEEP YOUR HOMEWORK FOLDER CLOGGED, OR ANY OTHER FOLDER THAT YOU ALWAYS HAVE OUT. If you have a habit of stuffing all your assignments that aren’t even homework most of the time into your homework folder, it may be helpful to carry separate folders for all subjects outside of your binder, so you can organize each assignment by subject.
  • Embrace it, I don’t know. At least have a paper and pencil on you if you decide to set your binder on fire mid-year.

Well, that’s my talk on school supplies. If you made it all the way down here through that mess of words, EVEN IF IT DOESN’T APPLY TO YOU, congratulations, you earn my respect slightly more.

See you sometime in your wonderful lives,

-Victoria

Free Lunch #14

Hello there you SUPER DUPER POOPER BOX CHAIRS OF THE WORLD! 

TONIGHT WE HAVE THE FIRST EVER FREE LUNCH ON WEDNESDAY!!!! If you don’t know how this all works, I sit down for 5 minutes and try to not stop typing. Also the reason for not having as many words as someone normally could type in 5 minutes is that i’m on a phone, not a computer.

I’ll begin at 7:56.

Today was not amazing, but not horrible. We had our first of three Math final TCAP tests, along with our Science test, which is basically our final exams. 

I breezed through the Math test because it’s one of my best subjects, but the Science one was difficult because I missed a chunk of material at the beginning of the year. There was also some things in there that we didn’t apparently have time to cover, even though my Science teacher is awesome.

In Clash Royale news, I got a Super Magical Chest yesterday, and when I opened it today, I got a second Inferno Dragon ;-;

For people who don’t play Clash Royale, it’s like having someone pass out chocolates, and you got the one with a bite taken out of it that smells strange.

Also, I have a special Gorillaz related treat coming tomorrow for you in collaboration with my little brother.

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post :3

SAO and State Testing

Hello there you roller-skating self-defense mechanisms. Today I will give you a brief talk about a new anime I started watching, and the upcoming state testing at my school.

The above mentioned anime is Sword Art Online, which without too much spoilers is basically about getting stuck in a virtual reality game. The concept of it just instantly appealed to me, and I was very eager to continue the series after watching the pilot episode. It was recommended by riseofthechairs so thank you 😀

Outside of Netflix, we have our annual state testing starting next Monday. All of our teachers are trying to get as much information as they can into our grey matter before the test. Which is very overwhelming sometimes. If it was up to me, instead of the huge end-of-the-year test/exam, which judges your intelligence and decides your future while stressing you out, you could instead have the teachers moniter your growth through the way you act, answer questions, and talk with your fellow humans in the classroom. Don’t get me wrong, I do understand that we need tests for grades, but they could just split the test up so that it’s not 3 solid days of sitting down completely silently bubbling in answers.

But that’s just my opinion.

So yeah. That’s tonight’s post.

idk

As the title suggests, I don’t know what to do. I was thinking of making a cooking vid but then I thought I would save the recipe for when Riley and I do a cooking collab possibly.

So my March books are going well, and I’ve got to hurry up to fit in the deadline. Reviews for the books will come soon, so if you are thinking about reading them, hopefully that will help.

And now an interview with my little brother.

Q: What is your favorite type of coin?

A: Quarters. Well, pennies and dimes and stuff, they’re small, they don’t have a lot of value. And, um there are half dollars and others.. but they’re hard to find and you wouldn’t find a place to use them.

Q: If you could create one Pokemon, what would it be named and what would its moves/type be?

Well, its type would be dragon and fire, its name would be Tyrangue and um its moves would be Dual Chop, Dragon Breath, Flamethrower, and Overheat.

Q: If you could have any other name, what would it be and why?

I would be Adam because well Adam is just a cool name. It’s short, its not that special, but you also don’t see it all the time.

Q: What is your biggest regret in life?

Um, well *waits for 45 seconds* I don’t know.

And that is Eliot Watson, my co-host in the Nerd and His Brother whenever we get that done!

Let’s see….

I’ve got a boring homework packet just like Victoria and Riley.

OH! I have started guitar and Riley already posted about that you can check that out here.

Like for run on sentences!

And since Riley didn’t do a Dictionary Taboo, I will.

Restorative Circles Rant

Hello you fruits, today I’ll tell you about horrible restorative circles at my school.

But before that, i’ll tell you that the first new Food World will be out on the 16th, which is next Monday.

Ever since the new vice-principal came to our school, we’ve been having to do this thing called Restorative Circles, where the whole class sits or stands in a circle, and we waste 30-45 minutes of what is supposed to be learning. We pass around a talking toy/stick/whatever, and only the person holding it is allowed talk. They then ask us questions about how we feel about school, and what we did over the weekend or something.

It literally feels like we’re being put back to elementary school for a morning meeting,

ONLY WE HAVE TO DO IT FOR EVERY. SINGLE. CLASS.

Half an hour to Forty-five minutes is spent doing things that don’t relate at all to what we’re supposed to be learning in school. The school implemented it thinking that they could make it a better community where everyone is friendly and nice, which is a good idea, if they weren’t taking so much away from the actual point of school, which is learning..

Rant over.

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

 

Free Lunch

Free Lunch #5

GO

Brendan is being an annoying little bother as usual. Um lemme think.. We originally had school today but the secretary turned us away at the door and told us if we wanted to get back in the car and go home we could because it’s snowing really hard. So me and Jamie ran back to his mom’s car and we drove to his house, where a few minutes later I was picked up by my mom. I don’t have very much else to talk about.. I just ate a pumpkin muffin with a little butter inside, and it was very good. Brendan and Saoirse turned on an Adventure Time DVD, where a deer is now attacking a bunny on a radio show. It’s still snowing and it’s 10:20 so i’m stopping now.
