yeah....so i watched 15 episodes of scryed in a row last night. there's nothing wrong with that is there? mrs. downey says that i'm the cause of all the problems in the world. she's joking. i hope. one of my essays is progressing very nicely, the other i haven't started yet. mr. kalner gave a pop quiz today cause no one was participating in class. i think i did pretty good on it....and that pretty much sums everything up. peace.

i saw kill bill today with craig, donnie, adam, sam and scott. i really liked it. a little over exaggeration on the blood, but other than that it was very fun to watch. i can't wait until volume 2 comes out. does anyone know when that is? ah whatever. i can't say that i'm in a bad mood, but i don't think im in a good mood either. i'll have to use one of my favorite words in saying that i feel very copacetic right now. i wish it wasnt though. if i can quote my spanish teacher..."¡Animate!" hm...yeah...tomorrow will be my usual sunday routine. sleep till 2, then do as little homework as possible..though...actually..i think i'm going to try to write at least one of my us history essays. i've got 2 due on the third and i haven't started either of them the least bit. i really can't wait to the last day, cause that would mean TWO essays in ONE day which just isn't possible for me. hmm..that's all. peace.

school is okay. the essays weren't that bad. 8th period and the pep rally come along. i don't want to go so a bunch of us on the frisbee team just hang around on the frisbee field passing the disc around. the dean comes along and says we can play as long as we know we're going to be written up for cutting. i had gym then so mr.natoli won't write me up, he's cool. so we're playing and two of the security guards come along, elvis (yes that's his name) and some other woman. sam for some reason hands the frisbee over when elvis asks and we all get angry and want it back. we argue with him while the woman holds the door open for elvis in the back. mark gets pissed off and moons them. he moons them again. and again. the woman goes in the school, disgusted and mark runs accross the street to hide. elvis asks marks name and we tell them that his name is "john marks." he believes us, he goes inside and we wait a few minutes outside. then ian pulls out his frisbee and we're playing some more...but then elvis comes out and ian quikly hides the frisbee under his hoodie. we have a conversation with him about how he should be going to get the kids who are smoking in the bathroom and not bother us cause the dean said we could play. he's an idiot. so he goes back in after we convince him we don't have the frisbee and we move to the field infront of the school to play. we're playing for awhile, but then out of no where mark takes the frisbee and runs up to a security guard thinking if he gives them the frisbee he won't get in trouble. another stupid thing to do. she didn't get the frisbee, we all yelled at mark and finally elvis comes outside again. he tells us that he spoke to the dean and can play! hooray! so i play until about 3:30, i had a good game and an awesome school day.
at like 6 i go over to brian. brian, aj, mark, frank, another kid who i'm not friends with and i were supposed to go see scary movie 3 and do stupid shit in town. well...turns out mark can't come, neither can that other kid. so we invite lenny and it's brian, lenny, frank, and i walking a few miles to lynbrook. we meet aj half way..well he catches up to us..anyway...we're walking on sunrise highway which is pretty fucking crazy, but fun as hell. in the grassy hilly areas that seperate part of the highway frank and aj stupidly roll down the hills a few times...oh man..if i had a camera i could have so won americas funniest home videos. finally, we get into lynbrook and find out the 8:50 is sold out, so we have to wait for the 10:20. oh well. we stop in vincents pizzaria and grab a bite to eat. i had the creamsicle soda that i had up at stew leonards...oh man, that's the best drink there is. i wish i could buy it at the super market. finally movie starts, we run into a coupla guys on the frisbee team, but they sat somewhere else in the theater cause they were with other people. whatever though. the movie was pretty funny, on par with the first but AWESOME compared to the sucky second movie. i'm not going to spoil anyything about the movie incase any of you want to see it. movie ends, my dad picks us all up...and now i'm here....i'll probably be up a few more hours..and uh...that's it. peace.
:: Justin 12:36 AM [+] ::
that was a great show. the singing was great, the songs were great and audrey 2 kicked so much ass it's not even funny. the ending was different from the movie, but better. a lot "darker"...still, it was great. i did awesome on my test in kalner and my vocab test today....but tomorrow i have 2 essays...and one of them is in...SPANISH. DUN DUN DUN. argh. totally suxoring. i'm so tired. i didn't even get to nap today, that's how much everything sucks....im gonna go to rest in a few, but i first have to show you my updated flash animation which is viewable here! alright. love and peace.

simply enigma: im soaking in too many contradicting opinions and its really making a mess of the way i feel about everything
whatever though. what else is new? lol. i dont think anyone is ever happy. happiness is just a state of mind, and it's a mask for reality. i played a lot of suikoden today. it's good. on par with suikoden 3. my parents came home at dinner time. i didn't really miss them, since they weren't gone for long or anything, but i can say that i'm glad theyre back. when my grandma was here she was too pampering. everything had to perfect, everyone had to be pleased. i don't like that. i need to go do a few things..peace.

psats this morning. i did good. parents left for washington to go to a wedding. grandparents at my house, parents dont trust me alone with siblings for extended period of time for obvious reasons. i don't blame them. made a few "revelations" about you-know-who today. some good, some bad. babysit. made 35 dollars. now i'm home and i feel like showering. peace.

great day, too bad it had to end early. played a good game of 7 on 7 ultimate after school. walked back to my house with brian and mark, then at about 5 we were gonna walk to brians house. here's where the fun starts.
:: 10.16.2003 :: okay ::
1. we're passing a certain someones house. mark runs up to her doorbell and i jolt off like a lunatic. i thought he really knocked, but he didnt. scared the crap out of me. i seriously would have killed him had he really did anything.
2. we're walking along and we find that someones throwing out a sink. we pick up the sink and walk around oside asking people if theyll buy it for 5 dollars. the fucking funniest thing that happend in the past...say...4 months. one old guy who was bald with a long white beard was walking and mark went up to him "HEY SANTA THE ELVES WOULD LIKE THIS!" he ignored him. "COME ON MAN" more ignoring. "YOU KNOW YOURE EITHER KRIS KRINGLE OF A TERRORIST!" rofl. it was so great. we put it in a shopping cart and went into CVS with it. we kept trying to get people to buy it in there. we also thought about buying drain-o. finally we get the idea to call yana and give it to her.
3. so yana comes, we walk around a bit. a guy asks us for directions, mark goes up and gives him TOTALLY WRONG DIRECTIONS. mean bastard. we through away the sink in a dumpster and mark needed so leave so his dad drove to where we were and gave us a ride back to brians house.
4. brian, yana and i go into town to get some pizza at sals. nothing that funny happend. we tried figuring out the jukebox, played green day and coldplay, stole yanas hat, etc. she broke up with her boyfriend and got back togetherwith him in one day.
5. back at brians house the 3 of us are just hanging out talking. yana leaves cause her grandma, who was home lone called yana and she felt bad. she was talking to her in russian on the phone and it was so damn funny. apparently speaking russian means screaming your brain out.
6. yana leaves, mark comes back. we talk. im tired as hell and i have the psats tomorrow. i go home...and now i'm here.
so yeah...that was my day. pretty fun if you ask me. ah well....i think im gonna go to bed. peace.
:: Justin 10:14 PM [+] ::
i had a pretty good day today. i did better than usual at frisbee, i dont have that much homework, played some suikoden and uh.....i took a nap. today was picture day at school.. when the guy came over and told me to tilt my head like they do in traditional yearbook photos he lifted up his arms and had horrible BO. argh. i dont know why i remember that, but i did, and it bothered me. he was a creepy guy...hm...that's all for now. i was hoping this would prove to be an interesting week, but it hasnt. oh well. maybe next week.

at the meeting with kalner after school today he bought 70 dollars worth of chinese food for 9 people. i have absolutely no clue why, apparently he has never ordered food for a group before. he said we could take home food, and since everyone was taking home bags worth i took a container of general tsao's(sp?) chicken. i ate almost the entire thing on the walk home, im such a pig..eheheheh. my fortune cookie said "you have a curious smile and a mysterious nature." interesting....oh well. i came home and took an awesome 2 hour nap, woke up and had some pizza bagels, watched jeopardy and then came the homework.
:: 10.14.2003 :: Update Journal ::
after homework i started suikoden. it's pretty cool so far. i can tell i'm going to like it. i didn't play much though, i'm too tired and i havent really been paying attention to what all the characters have been saying. i dont want to miss anything important.
i have the PSATs on saturday morning. i'm in the same room as you-know-who, so i hope i'll be able to pay attention to the test ;). my parents are also going away this weekend, and my grandparents will be here for two days. argh. they are going to yell at me cause i stay up so late, i know it. oh well, theyre old and cant enforce anything on me. so that's that...lets go red sox, lets go cubs...peace.

hoooom hooom hoooom....yesterday was blah. i had that doctors appointment, nothing interesting came out of it. thet rest of the day was basically me playing disgaea, which i got much farther in. today was the 28th day of school. 1/8th done...well, about that. i have some homework to do, but im procrastinating cause that's all im good at...bah..i'm being boring. i shall entertain you all by giving you a link to see that still life i may have mentioned the other day.

so lets see...yesterday..yesterday. it's sad i cant remember what i did yesterday? it was saturday right? Oh yeah...i babysat....i babysat for michael. i hadn't seem him in awhile. it was cool and stuff. made 35 bucks for a few hours, not bad if i do say so myself. i also practiced my driving and SOMEONE HONKED AT ME. it was great. i cant wait till im driving alone, road rage here i come :-D. i also pressed the wrong switch or something and the windshield wiper liquid started spraying, and then the wipers went on and i swerved and almost got killed. my mom was laughing too much to tell me what to do.
:: 10.10.2003 :: Update Journal ::
today was uh...interesting. i got some pants, and a shirt. the shirt is awesome. its got small mario + mushroom = SUPER MARIO. (pictures not words). on the sleeve it has mario lifting up a mushroom over his head. it's cool...im gonna have to wear it some time this week. i went over to brians at like 4, we walked around town till his brother got home with the xbox. then mark and frank came over and we played halo, ordered pizza and laughed. mark, who almost never plays videogames was picking a character and he was looking at the controller set up called "interverted", he thought that interverted was the name of the character and asked if interverted was any good. it was rofl funny...we bashed him about it for the next few hours. then my dad called and had to pick me up since he was going out to a friends. bah. oh well....
now i'm home. tomorrow i have a doctors appointment with my kidney doctor. argh. i hate going there, it's such a long drive..hopefully ill be able to smuggle some fast food along with me for the ride. hm....thats all..yeah...peace.

tonight i think i came to the conclusion that i dont have the same mentality as most people. i was out with brian, mark and frank and it was all good, we walked around RVC...met up with aj and adam at 711, by coincidence, ajs cousin and a bunch of other people were there too. nothing important happend, i was a little quieter than usual, but when we got back to brians house we had a good hour and a half talk about pretty much life, the universe and everything, and i was also quiet. i will admit, there was a lot i could not comment on because i have not experienced anything, but they way they, mainly mark and frank, acted...i dunno. i just feel secluded, different, wandered from everyone. it's hard to explain. i know this sounds like the same old sob story, and i know it is expected of me to say that but i honestly i dont give two fucks.i dont think i can use words to explain how i feel different. just, you know, the way people act, the normal but still not popular, but majority, way of thinking. what the basics of life are about, opinions on other people, opinions on myself...for instance..they were talking about how everyone can be two faced and mean, and i think that is true to some extent, but i think some people are decent, some people dont have the ability to be mean, they can't find it within them. argh. i dont know what im saying. i need to write out something on paper to explain it.
:: 10.09.2003 :: Alternatives ::
in other more depressing news, frank has a class with ________. he said that he was on the same team as her in middle school and that she was a bitch, and that she's rude and stuff. he also said he thought she was a lesbian. now, i know franks not the brightest of the bunch, but still what he said got to me, and while i dont think i quite showed it at the time, i'm pissed, confused, angry and afraid. if there ever was any chance of me talking to her, it's all gone now. oh well...it's not like i ever was going to..or could have. i hate myself sometimes, no, most of the time.
love and peace :-p. goodnight.

I fell asleep before I could tell you all about my day yesterday, I bet you were all upset ;). Anyways....there's nothing major I have to talk about except this thing Mr.Kalner asked me to help him out with.
:: 10.07.2003 :: Edit Journal Entries ::
He believes that the schools are teaching too much irrelavant crap and he believes there should be more courses that deal with things that go on in every day life that still fit in some other area of school. For instance a class would be like "McWorld vs Jihad." That basically means the American way of life compared to the way people in say, Afghanistan live, and opinions, ideas and beliefs from both sides. None of that Hooray America! bullshit. Another type of class would be teach people how to use Palm pilots, and other technological gadgets and things. He also suggested a few things like History of Rock and Roll, but I can't remember anything. What he needs me and the 8 other people chosen to do is to make the curriculum, teach the curriculum, and pretty much teach the class. I wouldn't be getting any credit for this aside from the fact it is a pretty cool and unique experience. It's every wednesday after school for like an hour and a half, he'll supply the food. Now, the school doesnt know about this yet. We're doing it in secret until we're far enough along to talk to them about it and be able to show them something. He said something about at the end of the year taking a few people up to board of ed and to present the classes infront of them to try and get these to become actual NYS classes. Anyways, this is cool, probably be an unfortunate amount of grueling work, but in the end I think worth it.
Hmmm....I watched Batman Returns last night, well, part of it. I fell asleep at the end and now I'm pissed off cause I want to see how it ends. Stupid me not seeing the movie and now wanting to see it. Oh well....Today was today. Nothing important happend, I'm tired and I think I should take a nap.

Your Primary Mythical Creature
The main strength of the Water types is feeling. The second element indicates the most probable focus for this emotional expression.
Water with Air
Astrologically associated with Pisces and the Twelfth House
Mermaid types are warm and caring in a passive, receptive way. They are given to daydreaming and to contemplation, a combination that can make them seem curiously absent and fey. They are among the most unworldly of all the types. Despite this they have a strong ability for clear, rational thinking that can be startling. They seem to have a deep, intuitive understanding of the oneness of the universe. They have a desire to help the world at large and are acutely aware of and sensitive to suffering. This is partly because they do not recognize the customary boundaries between people, other living things, time, space, this world and the Otherworld. They are frequently psychic. They can be brilliantly original and highly creative. They are usually regarded by others as benign eccentrics or as plain weird.
Your Shadow Creature
All the Fire types have problems relating to anger and aggression. The weakest element indicates the main focus of these problems.
Fire and Earth
This shadow is prone to a sense of stagnation due to lack of motivation and laziness. Nothing durable is ever produced. Practical activities may never be embarked upon. There is an underlying sense of futility and hopelessness. Disillusionment results from their lack of confidence that they can change anything for the better, and in any case they do not have the will. At the same time there is an underlying grandiosity and even megalomania reflected in their dreams and aspirations. They need to feel special. Instead, they may simply overindulge or neglect themselves physically. The biggest obstacle of weak Earth is to overcome self-centeredness and greed; the biggest obstacle of weak Fire is to overcome anger and aggression.

aaaanywaaaays. guess what im doing right now. seriously. guess....nope..no..nope...naah....YES! YOU OVER THERE! YOU GUESSED CORRECTLY! I am procrastinating. hahahah..that made no sense at all. i dont know what the fuck im talking about. i had a really strange lunch period today. it was all talk about halloween costumes and such, i'll get into that later though. anyways...i had a good day at school today. i have more homework than i would usually like, but oh well, that's life. anyways, halloween is coming up and i'm not sure what i should be. so far i have a few ideas and suggestions which are...
myself - take a picture of my face, blow it up, cut out eye holes and string it around. wear a mask of myself to school.
jesus - good for a laugh, especially considering im jewish/atheist
eeyore - brian wants to get a bunch of people to dress up like characters from the 100 acre woods, i think it's a pretty stupid idea, even though i like eeyore.
???? - this is where YOU come in. post comments telling me what YOU think i should do for halloween.

yeaaah...i got an essay a little over 2 weeks ago and it's due tomorrow. i haven't even looked at it yet :-D. talk about procrastination! anywaaaays....okay day at school. apparently kalner let some people in my class read my "satanic" sermon...i better get a good grade on it if he keeps talking about it like this. so here is the best part of today: i learned how to mailbox people. you have one person crouch/curl behind someone when they arent looking and then another person pushes them backwards and they trip over the person who crouched. it's so much fun! tomorrow is lennys birthday and we are going to have a cake for him and sing happy birthday to him in the bathroom. it should be interesting. i can finally say i've eaten cake in the school bathroom :-/...or something like that. tomorrow brian and aj are coming over for an all day get backers marathon! w00t. 3 day weekend thanks to yom kippur..i don't think i'll have that much homework either...too bad all year can't be like this. oh well...i have to go write that essay...peace.

a few funny things to tell. i'll start off with one of yesterdays more amusing things.
1) my brother and sister were home alone and my brother had to leave to hebrew school so my sister was going to stay at my neighbor down the block. my brother wants to leave a sign on the door telling me where everyone is. i will now tell you what the sign says: "justin, i am at hebrew school and molly is down the block at barbara. the keys are under the mailbox and the alarm is NOT on." i must emphasize that the NOT was written in capitols and underlined. :-D. hmmmm...i think im going to submit a story about this to readers digest..it's quite funny.
2) walking back to school from marios today one of the senile old pedophile(sp?) security guards stops lenny and i and asks us what classes we had third period. he though we were 10th graders and we werent allowed to leave the school. ugh. what a retard. also note that i got a giant pixie stick and had to have lenny cut it with a key because i couldnt tear it open. stupid plastic.
3) so i wrote this thing for the newspaper i was talking about yesterday. matt showed it to my teacher this morning and when he read it he was amazed. in class he told me that he was jealous of my writing because he could never put so much emotion into a sermon. rofl. im not even religous. after class he had my group stay to talk about why john didnt meet with us at the library and if it should effect our grade or not. he said that everyone had something to contribute to the group. he said i contributed my "insanity." gee, what a teacher.
4) the answer to a problem in my chem class was "1337"...hahah..i started laughing...im so pathetic. :-p
so that's all...i should be doing homework right now but im procrastinating..and uh..that's that. yeah. peace.
