    life update? life update pog champ

    new year, new me lol
    it is now january 16, 2021 and a lot has changed (about me personally at least) since my last blog post
    • ive come out as pansexual and genderfluid
    • i've worked on expressing myself more, so hopefully i dont seem like a brick wall when people talk to me (ive noticed ive become a much more caring person), and i am trying to expand my interests and work on my social skills so i can actually try to hold an interesting conversation with someone
    • i am talking to a counselor and psychiatrist about my mental health, i have not attempted suicide or self harmed in two and a half years and i would very much prefer it to stay that way, thanks
    other than that things are the same for the most part, in regards to my first bullet i havent told anyone in my family because im afraid of what they'll say but hey thats how it is. i still have a good few friends that have been with me for years, and its getting easier to meet new people and make new friends.

    see y'all next time

    stand in blog post

    the idea was to make a blog post that had pictures of cats in it but the file sizes were too big and it wouldn't let me upload them, so take this blog instead :)

    Oh boy more... things

    My last blog post was in November, time for a new one. What has happened to me since the last update?

    Not much, really. The only notable thing I can think of is that I recently started taking ADHD medication again after about two years of not taking anything. I started it back in January. It feels like I can actually kinda keep focus on things now, and my mind and thoughts aren't a constant jumble of randomness. This all goes away when the medicine wears off, although by that time I'm usually already home and done with my work for the day. The dosage I'm taking is based off what I was taking back around 7-8th grade, and I've changed a lot since then... I'll probably have to change dosage if this amount doesn't work out for me.

    Other than that? Nothing interesting.

    Moving on... I can't believe it's 2020 now, even though it's already February.
    I'm surprised at how fast things seem to move by in life, even though it all keeps on going at the same rate. I'm also a bit surprised (and thankful) at who I've turned out to become these past few years.
    It still feels like just yesterday I was just another 13 year old kid about to start his freshman year at high school, shy as hell and having no friends to speak of. Now I'm almost done with my sophomore year and I turn 17 later this year. I have a small but great group of friends that although we can seem very different from each other, I know I can count on them if I have to. It might not seem like a very long time to you, but to me it seems like an entire lifetime and a half.

    Moving on (again...), I've recently been thinking about the future. I don't have much time left until I have to start making decisions that will ultimately affect what I do and where I end up in life. As for my high school years, I'll stick with what I got. I greatly enjoy doing fencing and I've noticed that I've gotten stronger and my physical health has gotten better since I started taking the course. Next year, I'll be taking a newly-offered guitar class at my school so maybe I can learn to play.
    After that, though? No clue. I'll need to start doing research into things like colleges and determine what's best for me. (Since PSAT scores have been released, I've gotten letters from various colleges and universities. They all have the same premise to them all though, even though they come from different places. Not exactly too helpful.) I'm also considering looking for a part time job soon so I can start earning some spending money and get some sort of experience.

    wow that was a long post, after all that i can't exactly come up with a good outro text so uhhhhhh
    have a good one and stay kind :)

    general life update thingie????

    y'all ready for a random mishmash of words as i try to describe my general life? no? ok

    please note i am absolutely horrible at writing and im just copying my thoughts

    unlike what i expected, things have stayed stable for the most part and im grateful for that. apart from a few things, im still the same person and my life is (mostly) the same.

    now probably about zero of you may be wondering, "well drenal, what have you been doing with your time? anything big or important really?" and the answer is no, not really. life's been going on like it should. my school life is good, my grades are good (one of my teachers is considering shooting me up to a GT class) and i have enough friends to keep me from getting lonely most of the time anyways. most of my free time i spend playing video games and talking with some of my friends (some of which I haven't seen in years but we still manage to keep a good friendship between us).
    there are other things too, bad things, that i probably shouldn't talk about/don't feel like talking about anyways. im trying to keep a positive mood about me

    tl;dr life's good lol

    if anyone is still reading this... remember that in a world where you can be anything, be kind to one another

    Kittens under the house

    At my dad's house, there is a cat that lives under the house, she is pretty comfortable with people she knows well so she lets us pick her up, etc. I came here to this house today and my sister called me over, I look under the porch we were standing on and I saw 4 kittens with the cat I was talking about earlier. Earlier this year, she had kittens but they didn't make it :( we suspect that another animal got them. We didn't want it to happen again, so right now the kittens are in a box in the house with the mother, I hope that they make it. We don't know what we are planning to do with the kittens yet.
    Update :I tried taking pictures, here's the best one, in it you can see one of the kittens

    Well, this sucks.

    So in school I am taking a high school English 1 class even though I am in eighth grade. Normally this would mean that I would get a high school credit for English 1 and not have to take it next year in ninth grade. However, Louisiana government recently passed the Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA. Due to regulations set in place by the act, nobody in the state of Louisiana can receive high school credit for English 1 classes, which is bad because the kids that are taking English 1 in eighth grade in Louisiana will have to take the class again in ninth grade. Kinda defeats the purpose of having a high school class in middle school doesn't it?

    I don't like winter

    as the title says, I don't really like winter. it's usually viewed as a snowy delightful time, but down in Louisiana, it's just a damp, cold season. ugh

    a short entry about my brother, Peyton

    my brother just got expelled from our school. what for, you might ask? he got expelled because he had his butterfly knife trainer with him. when my mom went to the office to prove that it wouldnt cut others, it actually cut her wrist when she showed them. turns out my brother had sharpened the trainer.

    god, what an idiot.

    That time I almost got a concussion

    One day at my old school, our P.E. teacher took us out onto the football field for free day or whatever. He sat us down onto the bench and gave us a talk about what not to do, etc. Then he said "Go," and we all started running off the bench, when a kid that was much bigger than me slammed into me and knocked me onto the ground. My vision swirled around, and it kept getting darker, until I stayed still long enough for it to go away. I had to sit out for 3/4 of P.E. class that day.

    I don't know how I didn't get a concussion, even though this was the second time that something like this happened.

    Now I understand the importance of football helmets.
