{Tue, Dec 1549, '09}   10 Things People Don’t Know

So… here are some facts I find rather irksome that I would like to share with you. Because I know you all care.

  1. Sound Travels: When I’m walking in the school hallway 5 feet in front of you, believe it or not, I can hear you talking about me.
  2. Sound Continues to Travel: When I turn around (see 1) and say “I can hear you,” it doesn’t help to talk quieter. I still know you’re talking about me.
  3. Bipolar: To be bipolar does not mean to have sudden, drastic mood swings. I have no idea where that ridiculous idea came from. To be bipolar means to have a range of emotions from depression to some kind of euphoria within a short period of time.
  4. Short Periods of Time: A short period of time (see 3) is a few years.
  5. Low Pants: I’m not sure why anyone likes to see your boxer-clad butt when you bend down to pick up something you dropped. And it’s not really the hottest thing ever when you accidentally pull your shorts down doing curl-ups in phys. ed. class. (true story)
  6. Internet Privacy: The internet is not private. Umm… duh. For example: “Hey, what’s the math homework?” “Hey, how’d you get my cell number? Stalker!” “You posted it on facebook, idiot.” “Aaaah! You hacked my account!” “Nooo, your cell phone number is on your profile. Anyone can see it.” “What the heck!??! Why are you talking to me, stalker?
  7. Your Fault: “My teacher is so mean! She gave me a detention for chewing gum. AGAIN!” Well, you know that you aren’t supposed to chew gum in class… and you know you’re gonna get punished for it… so… why are you chewing gum in class? That applies to other things, too.
  8. Reading Books: Books are actually fun to read, in case you didn’t know. They’re like tv except with more possibilities. Writing, too. As long as you read about something you’re interested in, it’s fun. Like, you don’t play games you hate or watch shows that are dumb, right?
  9. Foreign Language: No, I’m not talking about math class. Foreign language class is very important, so stop insulting the teacher by saying it’s stupid. And if it’s so stupid, then I can only assume you’re such a master that it bores you. Let me be the first to tell you there’s a difference between (Spanish) “¿Qué pasa” and “cabeza,” “tú” and “usted,” and “aquí” and “allí.” “Ropa” is not rope, and “sopa” is not soap.
  10. Typing: Okay… why is it that I’m typing in complete sentences, using punctuation, not abbreviating words, and capitalizing and you claim you’re smarter than me. “your not tipin wright wen u spel lyke this.” “u suc @ typin if u do dis” “aaaaaandddddddd thisssssss isssss juuuuussstttttt annnoyiiinggggg.”

This is my opinion, and if you have a problem with it, then I have a problem with you.

Have a nice day! 😀

Update: Here’s some more that I decided to throw in…

  1. When Juilet says “wherefore art thou, Romeo,” she’s not asking where he is. She really means “why are you Romeo,” as in why did you have to be born into this unaccepted family, or why did fate bring our families apart when we want to be together? That sort of thing.
  2. It’s not really funny to scream “swiiine!” when someone coughs, or even randomly. And it never was. In fact, I find it offensive: Offensive to people with the influenza, offensive to people who know others with the influenza or whom have died from the influenza, offensive to people at risk for getting the influenza, scientists working to cure the influenza, etc. There’s a difference between being mean and being funny.
  3. Believe it or not, but this next one comes up a lot. There’s a difference between a baritone horn, a tuba, a trumpet, a french horn, a saxophone, and pretty much every and any instrument. There’s even a difference between the bari and a euphonium!
  4. Being born with black hair and dark eyes does not mean the person is emo. Wearing black clothes doesn’t make them goth. Being reserved or shy does not make them depressed. Wearing long sleeves does not mean they cut themself. Get these crazy assumptions and stereotypes out of your head!
  5. Other people do not speak with accents– you’re the one that does. Think about it.
  6. If you’re going to sing with your earbuds in, please make sure you can hear yourself. You may THINK you have the voice of an angel, but everyone else thinks you’re tonedeaf.

{Tue, Dec 1533, '09}   Hypocrite!

The show, Hannah Montana on Disney Channel, is hypocritical. Just saying.

I really don’t know why I bother blogging about things that require research…

In the Hannah Montana episode, “Yet Another Side of Me,” Hannah meets her idol, Isis. She then becomes worried her fans will lose interest in her music, and is convinced she will have to keep changing her image to keep them loyal to her.

Well, here’s Season 1 Hannah and Season 3 Hannah:

Hannah Montana

I’m pretty sure the episode gave kids the impression that Hannah will not change for her fans. *cough* selfish reasons *cough*

So what’s this?

New Hannah has a different wardrobe of poofy skirts, animal-print tights, single gloves, *cough* Micheal Jackson *cough* and high waistlines. Old Hannah wore long shirts and simple colors. Her hair has also changed. It used to be long, blonde, and straight. Now it’s shorter, darker, and wavy. And a heck of a lot more.

So what kind of message is this sending to viewers? Hypocrisy is okay? It’s important to change for the benefit of others?

I don’t know. Really, I COULD care less, but…

{Sun, Dec 1351, '09}   Disney Vs. Nickelodeon

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while… THAT, and I don’t feel like doing my homework now, so…

I feel so targeted. Nickelodeon and Disney Channel are going at it, trying to catch my attention. Maybe you noticed. Maybe you never realized it and you are their pawn.

The most major thing I can point out is the internet. The two tv channels are targeting internet-users (YouTubers). Take Lucas Cruikshank, for example. He first appeared on iCarly in the episode, “iMeet Fred.” Later, he guest starred on Hannah Montana in the episode, “Come Fail Away.” Naturally, the television stations are trying to get Fred fans to become their fans. Nickelodeon also featured Care Bears on Fire in “True Concert,” an episode of “True Jackson, VP.” (Yes, Justin Beiber appeared in that same episode)

There are also some minor details I noticed. Disney has a show called “The Suite Life on Deck,” about a group of kids attending high school on a boat traveling around the world. Nickelodeon borrowed this idea for school on a boat on iCarly in the episode, “iReunite With Missy.”

Trying to be subtle doesn’t work. Seriously. I see through this act every time I turn on the tv. Why I’m even watching these shows, I have no idea. There’s a lot more examples I could use, but these are the most obvious. And I’m bored of looking these things up.

Internet users, beware: You’re being used by television.

{Mon, Dec 758, '09}   TerraCycle

Nina at and are giving away a set of TerraCycle Eco-Nation speakers. Participating in the contest is easy and you have several chances to win through blog posts, Twitter and Facebook. The grand prize will be shipped fast so that the winner can enjoy their new TerraCycle Eco-Nation speakers during the holidays. For more information and official contest rules, see the blog entry: “The TerraCycle Eco-Nation Speakers Contest!”

TerraCycle is an awesome orginization (did I post this already?) that recycles the “unrecycleable.” Commonly thrown-away items such as juice pouches, plastic bottles, and gluesticks and makes them into common products, such as flowerpots, backpacks, and pencils.

That’s all I have on the subject…

{Sun, Dec 628, '09}   Mercy Is Cool?

Quick post:

So there I was, cute and innocent (noooo) in math class, talking to my friends. I think we were discussing David Garrett…

David Garrett

For anyone who doesn’t know, this is David Garrett, my newest obsession. To me, he is the most amazing violinist. (Amazing looking, too. XD)

It took willpower to only post one picture…

So, anyways, I was in math class obsessing over David Garrett to  my friends (“Omigawd, Mercy, you’re OBSESSED! Give it up!”), when this kid (let’s call him Ray, for the sake of discussion) interrupts.

Before you continue, let me just mention that “Ray” is mad at me because I ripped up his paper contraptions that he keeps pelting at me in class… including a ball of paper wrapped up in tape, several footballs, and a frog…

So Ray interrupts and says, “You know what’s cool? SKILLET. Skillet is cool.”

And I reply, “Oh, yeah. I’ve heard of Skillet.”

“Really? Name one song.”

“Ummm… I dunno. Whispers in the Dark?” (Yeah, I’m feigning idiocy. So?)

He’s silent for the longest moment in his existence– about 4 seconds.

“Woah, Mercy knows Skillet! She just became a little bit cooler.”

*class ends*

So… there you have it? I’m officially a bit cooler than I already was, somehow? Eh?

Really, if anyone can explain the weird stuff I post about, please do. I don’t know what kind of sad being would read my blog…

{Sun, Dec 641, '09}   Teen Years: A Documentary?

This blog was created so I can rant and vent or whatever to the people on the internet bored enough to read.

Things I am currently being wrongly accused of by my friends, family, classmates, teachers, guidance counselors, strangers, etc: (not joking)

  • cutting myself
  • being anorexic
  • having depression (actually, that one might make sense)
  • being a conceited, arrogant, self-centered know-it-all jerk
  • spending all my time playing games instead of homework (I DO play games, but I ALSO do my homework)
  • lying
  • cheating
  • possibly doing drugs… who knows what people think of me at this point?
  • starting rumors
  • being a whiny brat
  • stealing
  • being a snitch/tattle-tale
  • being a work-a-holic

In conclusion, my life sucks, and I am happy to share it. I really don’t know why I’m posting this, so…

I’m pretty sure this is the first of many posts I will be adding to this blog today…
