    Did we finish Romeo and Juliet in English class? Yes.
    Am I re-writing it? Maybe.
    Am I making them all gay? Absolutely.
    Is this Shakespeare slander? Perhaps.
    Do I care? No.
    Am I having the time of my life? Most definitely.

    Quillfeather OMG but who is Juliet gonna end up with >.>

    Ari11 Romeo of course, but this time he's a girl.

    Spoiler! :
    I scaled up the family rivalry to warring kingdoms, with the Capulets and the Montagues being rulers of twin cities Verona and Mantua. Romeo's parents need an heir, but they struggle with infertility until she comes along--female. Obviously, a girl can't inherit the throne, so they dress her up as a boy to convince the kingdom she's a prince instead.
    Because everyone thinks she's a boy, she can go out in public as a girl without attracting much attention. She likes to explore and is a bit of a klepto, but is also really lonely since her only other friends, Benvolio and Mercutio, are six years older than her and have to work all the time. Then she comes across Juliet and --ding-- the story begins!

    Ari11 Yeah, but the rice got soggy and turned all gunky.

    After two almost-suicides and a whole lot of mental and physical un-joyfullness, reaching the end of the month feels like such an accomplishment. It's like, 'Yay, I made it! Another month where I managed to stay alive!'
    I know that sounds kinda depressing but for me it's a big deal. Three months ago I honestly didn't think I'd be sitting here, writing this post. I'm definitely not okay yet but I think YWS has been a great helper on my road to recovery, and I want to thank you all for existing <33333 It means so much to me that you've helped me through this difficult time <3

    Spoiler! :
    <3333333333333 happy end of May! for the record, i'm very happy you are alive ^-^ thank you for existing <333

  • I somehow managed to put a sock on upside down today. Don't ask me how it happened.

    PaigeFantasy hole in the sock?
    May 30, 2023

    Ari11 No, they're brand new. I'm just lacking in the brain department.

  • I'm sorry but I might explode if I don't say this, and I know I'm probably being dumb, but the brain demands to be heard.

    Spoiler! :
    So, in my Geography class we have an end-of-year project that takes up a decent chunk of our grade. It's a presentation on a list of topics, which you get to choose. Except I didn't get to choose and got assigned to a different group instead. Which is fine, I'll make do.
    There's two other girls in my group, neither of whom I know very well. One is gone all the time for unknown reasons, but the other is here pretty regularly. Good, at least I have one reliable team member.
    We split up the slides; she does half, I do the other half. I finish my slides in two days. She finishes the front cover in the same amount of time. I make the interactive part of our project, which is required. She is still working on the front cover. I'm starting to worry if she's going to get anything done at all.
    Last day to work. Hooray! She finished the slides outside of school. Wonderful, I think. We'll finish the assignment after all.
    Presentation day comes. I can't get the interactive portion to work, so we probably won't be showing our slides today. However, only three groups are ready to present, and they all finish with about a fifth of the class left.
    My teacher states that anyone who wants to present now will get extra credit, but if nobody volunteers, we get points taken off. I urge my partner to help me present--we can get it out of the way, and we won't have to worry about the interactive portion.
    She refuses.
    I try to convince her.
    She reminds me that 'Group member M isn't ready to present.'
    I'm sorry, but M hasn't done ANYTHING for the entire two weeks we had to work. She's not even part of our group anymore.
    My partner still refuses to present, singlehandedly tanking both our grades.
    Yes, I am extremely angry about this.
    Yes, I want to punch a wall.
    Am I being dramatic? Maybe. But I am still very, very pissed.

    Snoink OH SNAP. This is unacceptable.

  • Another suspicious search made by a writer: 'How long does it take to die from a stab wound.'
    Gotta make those death scenes accurate! :P

    GengarIsBestBoy Recently i had to figure out how long it takes to pass out from oxygen loss. Surprisingly it seems like a lot of others had the same question as me
    May 23, 2023

    Ari11 When I was searching it up, Google auto-filled to 'How long does it take to die from a stabbed lung.' which is oddly specific.

    did you change your bio recently? because all the ufo references are slightly suspicious >.> (not in a bad way, though!! if you *cough* aren't human *cough* i would love to learn about life on other planets <.<)

    Ari11 I did update my bio >.>
    I swear, I am very human. I eat food and go to school just like the rest of you normal people. I assure you, any suspicious references are...purely coincidental.

    May 22, 2023

    Spearmint you... eat food... okayyy, well, that settles it. you're definitely human! :D XD

  • We're doing Romeo and Juliet in LA class, and today we had to act out the first scene of Act 3. I was Lady Capulet. It was surprisingly fun >.>

    I do wish the language was a little less convoluted though.

    Quillfeather Perhaps you will now fall in love with acting:D it really is wonderful. :O do you have a drama club :O you should join next semester
    May 19, 2023

    Ari11 I was in drama seventh and eighth-grade year, but I had to quit because of the excessive amount of homework I had T-T maybe I should get back into it.

  • Soo I wrote a short scene between two of my characters, and I think it's decent but could probably use some work. I would really appreciate it if you gave me some feedback on it! :)

  • I always get really shivery after writing an emotional scene. Dunno why.

Uh, Lisa, the whole reason we have elected officials is so we don't have to think all the time. Just like that rainforest scare a few years back: our officials saw there was a problem and they fixed it, didn't they?
