The One With The Speech
November 30, 2004 | Tuesday | 9:07 PM | Nikki | 9:07 PM | Comments (5)

Firstly, I'm aware that I've totally neglected this thing. I've actually neglected my whole domain. And it seems like every time I promise to update, I don't, so I'm not going to promise. I have been playing with another layout though, and i have two people picked out for an additional layout like the Andy Roddick one I have.

Okay, now to the speech. Today I had to do a memorized persuasion speech in english class. All we had was an intro, a little outline, and a conclusion. Of course I had to choose a hard topic, which was the unnecessary use of embryonic stem cells. everyone else had topics like the grading scale (which is totally ridiculous here. 69% is an F. Most schools around here is a 59 F) or school uniforms or something. So anyway, I've been worrying and complaining about the darn thing for weeks. You know, thinking about the worst case scenarios, thinking about every little thing that could go wrong, stuff like that. Well, today, everything that could have went wrong, went wrong. Literally. It was like god was out to get me. Not only did I forget everything and start to stutter and say incomplete, incomprehensible crap, I started to get sick. I had to cover my mouth to keep from throwing up (a scenario I actually thought about before hand. I thought maybe if I actually yacked I would still get the points), and the teacher actually had to tell me to calm down. Then, when I couldn't think of anything, I panicked because I knew I wouldn't finish in over 4 minutes. So when I looked down to read my conclusion, I couldn't see it. Not because I have bad eye sight (which I do btw) but because I was so close to actually fainting everything was all speckley and yellow and blue. Only someone who has been through that will know what I'm talking about. I don't even remember how i finished it, I just know that I stumbled to my desk before putting my head down and trying not to cry or something. Gosh was the horrible. How pathetic am I? I can't walk in that class again! I'll be the girl who almost fainted in class. You can't live that down.

Oh, one more quick rant. The davis cup final is on friday, and I just found out i have a half day friday, so I won't have to tape it! yay. I'm really trying to keep faith in our boys, but its looking rough. I basically think Andy will have to win both ties, and of course its a must win for the Bryan brothers. If Andy can beat Safin and Henman in a row, in straight sets, he can beat these guys on clay. He's 12-0 against them anyway. So what if only one of those wins is on clay, right? ;)

The One With One Year of Blogging

This blog was officially a year old on November 3rd. Yup, on nov 3rd at 5 o'clock I logged in for the first time. Five hours later I finally got the thing to post right. And now a year later I still have only used this thing 49 times. Quality, not quantity right?

You know, every time i would try to post something here, i'd end up forgetting and doing something else. I've had plenty to talk about, like the election, school, and so much tennis rants it could fill a whole page, but I'm just so lazy. Maybe I'll try to get in a real post later this week, but don't hold your breath.
