Last Day of Summer, First Day of My New Beginning.

Hey guys! Cliche title aside, it really is my last day of summer. Tomorrow, I finally begin my transition into Colorado Mesa University where I will at last be a part of the "mavily." I can't express how nervous I am about finally beginning the next phase of my life. Today feels... almost nostalgic I guess. I mean, it's my last day of summer as a technical "kid." And true, it's not actually the last day of summer, but I've always considered the day before school starts as such, and probably always will.

I can say that I am excited to see what college can teach me about myself and the major I am working towards. I also look forward to social experiences and being in a place where people are a little more adult. I must admit, however, that I'm not betting too much on the maturity simply for the fact that I know adults who act less mature than me.

My dad keeps telling me that college is going to be a lot more work than high school was, and I sincerely hope that isn't the case. High school wasn't impossible and I even graduated with a 3.8, but that doesn't mean it was cake either. I had to invest a lot of work into my homework and projects, as well as studying. That didn't leave me with a lot of social time.

I don't regret the actions I took to get to where I am now because hey, I earned my grades. I lettered for my second year in academics. I graduated high school. Those were my three goals for my senior year (aside from getting accepted into college). And I can happily say that I completed them and learned that even though I often feel dumb, I actually am a little smart.

Back From a Temporary Hiatus!

Hey guys, Del here. I'm sorry for the break from blogger (not that anyone actually cares!) I had this blog on a student email that was deleted due to transferring schools, so I could not access this blog. But all is well and I have successfully taken over again! So prepare for another year of shenanigans starring little ole me! I love you,

Junior Year... Yikes!

I always griped and complained about how difficult sophomore year was, but holy crap! Sophomore year was the icing on the cake compared to this year. I have began attending another High School, which is something I've wanted since I left Centennial Middle School in 7th grade. But, I already dislike this school, and it's barely been a full month! This is a ranting blog, and I sincerely hope you guys didn't expect anything less of me.

I am already in that part of the year where I honestly just want to stay home all day, crack out on Dragon Tales and Sesame Street, and eat my weight in Cheese Nips and Hot Cheetos. Like, yes please. So, what is already irking me? Well, I'm glad you asked (even though no one really did.)

I think my biggest confusion with this school is that it says I’m a senior, according to my counselor. But, I’m not a senior. I’m a junior. It sort of bugs me, because they expect me to attend all the senior meetings and stuff, and it’s like, why should I go if this doesn’t even apply to me until next year?

For instance, there was a meeting last week pertaining to ordering caps and gowns. My LEAD time teacher told me I had to go, and I’m just like, why? It’s not like I’m graduating this year. But, the good news is, if I continue to do well with grades this year, I can graduate by next December. I’m pretty stoked about that.

Slow People In the Hallways

Ah yes, people. Homo sapiens are always my least favorite things to deal with, and there is not enough coffee in the world to change that fact. I thought Ridgway was horrible, but now that I no longer attend school there, I honestly miss it so much.

There are too many people here. My favorites? The ones who walk at about a pace of -2 mph. It absolutely fills my life with joy. You know, I don’t already have a very short amount of time to get to class. Please, take all the time you need!

I don’t understand why people think it’s a great idea to swarm the halls, and basically build up a blockade in the center of the hallway. People need to get through, but they can’t; Why? Because some people seem to think that their social time is more important than the four minutes I need to make it from one end of the building to the other. This is not social hour; We are in school, and you can do your useless chatter at a more appropriate time; Maybe lunch?

End of the Year Awards!

For my final post of the year, I would like to hand out some awards from the people at my school. I figured it would be a refreshing break from ranting about all the things I hate... Ok, truthfully, I just couldn't think of anything else to rant about. Also, I am in a bet where I have to be nice to everyone for a week... It's challenging. Names will be included, so if you don't appreciate it, please let me know, and I will immediately change your name!

Most of you won't know who these people are, and that's absolutely fine. But, since I just recently won an award at school for the blogger of the year the other night, I'm in a particularly good mood. So, without further adieu, here we go! (By the way, this list is not in any particular order, so please don't think that just because you're not number one, that you're below anyone else!)

) The Best Music Taste Award;

This was actually a pretty hard decision to make, for the simple fact that I have a few people with a bomb-tastic taste in music. But, for the most part, I picked someone who I can get in lively debates over the best albums of the 70's from. So… drum roll please….

The Best Music Taste Award goes to… Mr. Shima! (Sorry, I don't think it's a good idea to include full names for the simple fact that it's a violation of privacy.) Mr. Shima has an amazing taste in music, even if I do give him grief over the type of music he plays during class sometimes. He does, however, listen to amazing bands such as the Beatles, the Steve Miller Band, and even more modern stuff such as Macklemore. So, Mr. Shima, here's to a great year!

Amanda Todd and Cyberbullying

This is a rather late thing to rant about, but I'm in a "screw the entire human race" kind of mood, so here we go. Brace yourselves for the anger that awaits in this post.

If you don't know who Amanda Todd was, I'll give you a little insight. Amanda Todd was a beautiful girl who made the mistake of flashing a stranger on a website her boobs. A year after that, she began getting bullied, because the man who did it posted it for all to see. She changed schools, and was bullied once again. I will post the video, but I will warn
you now, it's sad and explicit. This will be your only warning.

10 Celebrities Who Officially Conquered Puberty

Puberty… It either makes you a hot god, or a potato. It all depends on your genetics. Puberty sucks enough as it is, with all the awkward changes and raging hormones… But, here are 10 celebrities who officially became hot gods.

10) Dakota Fanning

There was Dakota Fanning as a young child, and now look at her...

Attention-Seeking 101

If there is one thing I cannot stand, it is people who do things purely for attention. Need more specifics? I'm talking about those annoying people who cannot stand the fact that they're not in the limelight for like, 2 seconds.

The Compliment Thing

I firmly believe in the power of words, but occasionally things do slip out of my mouth that I wish I had never said. However, if I give you a sincere compliment on anything about yourself, whether it be the color of your eyes, or the shoes you're wearing, accept the freaking compliment. I hate when I tell someone I think they're beautiful, and they won't accept it. This isn't really attention seeking, but it's pretty annoying. Or my favorite part is this:
Me: You're really pretty!
Them: Oh, no, no I'm the ugliest person in the entire world.
Me: Fine, you're ugly.
Them: *Gasp* I can't believe you would say that!

Well, what did you honestly expect? If you're not going to accept my compliment and you're going to keep denying it, I'll just tell you what you think. I'm not going to sugarcoat it and continue to tell you that you're beautiful if you're just going to keep dodging my compliments. I don't roll that way.

For instance, I used to have this extremely beautiful friend who always had guys hitting on her and stuff, and she always said she was ugly. But, she took a million selfies and was extremely conceited. So finally, I got tired of her always rejecting my compliments and saying she was ugly when she clearly thought she wasn't. I hate girls who only say they're ugly for attention.
