Irony And Sneaking

"The first recipe for happiness is: avoid too lengthy meditation on the past." - Andre Maurois

So I'm watching an episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer this afternoon (Sunday afternoon, that is) partially because I like the show, partially because I haven't watched any in awhile, and partially for escapism. And what happened?

I ended up relating to all four of the female characters in the episode in some way, shape, or form, which would have been hilariously ironic if it weren't so annoying (I take that back-- it's hilariously ironic anyway).

That's one of the many things that makes it such a good show, though; it's relatable, or at least we viewers can pretend that it is, which basically amounts to the same thing. 

(Bones makes for better escapism than Buffy, since the central character of each episode is dead. There isn't much to worry about there.)


I'm merging these posts because the above was supposed to go up this morning but didn't for some reason and now I have more to say. Let's start it off with another quote as per usual.

"Is this real, or is this not real? I don't know how I'm supposed to feel. They say I'll heal, and learn how to deal...I have this memory that I loved you." - "Real Or Not Real" by All Caps, based off of events in Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

If sneaking off campus for lunch without a pass is that easy, I should do it more often. I mean, seriously. It wasn't even sneaking; I just walked away from school.
Now, I wasn't actually sneaking off for lunch. I had my AP Chem exam today and was therefore let off early, and I had papers to prove it so I was allowed to leave and everything, but...I could have been just trying to get some ice cream from across the street or something and no one tried to stop me.

That's sad.


  1. I don't see why that is sad? It seems to indicate that the school places a certain amount of trust in their student body, which is a good thing it seems. When I was in high school, I often had to run errands for teachers, and it got to the point where I would just take a discarded hall pass with me (on legitimate errands mind you) to avoid the hassle of filling out a new one, just to maintain the appearance of propriety.

  2. It's sad because they make such a big deal out of not letting us off and how they keep a very strict watch.


Talk to me.
