The One With The Poetry Project

I think my blog problems are about over now. On Sunday, because of a huge bug with MT-Blacklist, while trying to delete an old test blog, it managed to delete all of my blogs. Thankfully I have a good host who performs backups each night, so after a quick msyql database restore, I was back in business. Anyhow, so today in english we had to do this group poetry project. All I had to do was read 2 biographies on Edgar Masters and Edwin Robinson. I'm a pretty good reader, yet I have this tiny problem... I cannot read out loud in front of people. So basically I sounded like a stuttering 2nd grader who took 5 min to read one freaking paper (double spaced too, by the way.). It was awful. I survived though, I didn't almost faint like the last time I had to get in front of the class, so I suppose that's a positive. The in my computer class we got our "evaluations" back. I'm paraphrasing here, but it basically read "you only got 170/200 because you're anti-social and you have a low self confidence". My teacher did say my social skills improved though, so again, I guess that's a positive. I guess it helps having Tasha and Deven sit next to me. Tasha, who i've known sense the six grade and the other boy who've I've sat next to the entire year. Then in US History my teacher had certain kids read out loud. I read the paper ahead of time and was just praying he wouldn't pick me for the last paragraph because it had words and names I couldn't pronounce in my head, let alone out loud. Then I heard the wonderful words, "Nicole, go ahead and read the last paragraph". Excellent. More stuttering. More embarrassment. By the time I got home not even my trusty diet coke could keep me awake so I conked out for about an hour and a half. I'm such a baby

Anyhow, enough teenage angst... guess what tomorrow is? My birthday. woohoo. I think my cursed 13th birthday, which was on Friday the 13th(on a Good Friday too), has finally lifted haha. Last year was pretty darn good, so hopefully this one will be even better.
