Blinking Icons and Flashing Lights

If there is anyone who dislikes failing internet and low battery more than anything, that would be me. I mean, why does internet even HAVE to fail? I wonder what would happen if everyone in the world just stopped using the internet. Would the internet be like... 100% faster? Everything would zoom by my face (if I was the only one using the internet) and I'd be like, omg, this fastness though. Anyway, back to the point. I hate it when I'm watching a video, and then it stops and that loading thing rolls 'round so annoyingly. And all because of the internet (well, sometimes). Okay, scratch that 'cause I don't watch videos much. What about the failing internet while you're seriously trying to write a blog post? AGH! So let's say I'm writing a blog post here, and then the warning pops up, saying something like, "Your post failed to save." and I just click 'Dismiss' and then 'Save' and then the warning comes again. So, not wanting to lose my work, I copy everything I wrote and paste it into Notepad. Then I restart the computer and the internet works fine again. So I take the work from Notepad and paste it back into the post to fill in whatever was not saved during the internet bug apocalypse. Anyway, the same case goes when I'm playing a game. 'You have lost connection to the game.' How annoying is that, man? I'm not sure if whoever reads this blog is a full-time gamer, but if you are, good for you. (Well, not really XD but whatEVER.) The computer I use always loses the internet when it's left alone for a long time, and I HATE IT. (Not the computer, but its trait of losing internet.) And when I'm too lazy to restart the computer, I try troubleshooting. But I'm too lazy to fix any wires (XD) so I'm like *rage-flips over computer table* and restart the computer. What else is there to do? Hehe. If I see the internet symbol with a yellow triangle warning sign near it, I'm mad. If I see a computer screen with a red X near it, I'm very mad. If I see the lights on my internet modem flashing orange, I'm mad. If I see no lights except the orange ones, I'm VERY mad. Madder than a hare. (XD yesterday expression)
And with that I conclude today's rant.

Ain't Time for the Zombie Apocalypse

Everyone undoubtedly hates slow people in places where you're supposed to walk FAST. FAST I TELL YOU. The most annoying thing in life is when you're stuck in a crowd of zombie-like humans who think the world belongs to them. In an airport, market, masjid on Eid, or practically ANYWHERE, you're practically like the only person who actually works in his right mind. You are the one who tries to push through everyone, actually TRYING to get somewhere, away from loud conversation and body odor. (Probably!) I'm usually a pretty calm person, but I'm also really impatient. I'd probably explode and die of impatience in a crowded masjid on Eid (which will happen pretty soon... aghhh). Oh yeah, and on weddings. UGH!!! I went to one recently and I didn't know whether to wait or to push. I actually do push people when I lose it. I push them and say a half-hearted sorry and move on. This is especially necessary when your family abandons you and you have to carry on alone. Isn't that ANNOYING?! There is absolutely NO REASON to walk slowly. And if you want to stop and talk to your friend I am going to push you man.

And with that I conclude today's rant.

Homeschooler Haters

People always imagine homeschoolers get to party all day at home in their bedclothes. This assumption is incorrect. Being a homeschooler, I know. I have never been to public school, but I'm sure I work as hard as public schoolers do. For heavens' sake I take online classes. Whenever I tell other people that they're like "Oh..." as if they've never heard of the online world. Not saying the online world is better than the real one, because it isn't, but the way they say it makes me think they were probably assuming I take NO classes at all. They look surprised when I say I have math textbooks. They always ask "Does your mom teach you?" I say, "No, I take online classes." My mom used to teach me but now she's too busy. I kinda liked it when she was in charge. But anyways, Back to the rant. I've seen negative comments about homeschoolers on YouTube, and they hurt. Some people are actually ANGRY that homeschoolers need to go supply shopping, be organized, and have desks in their rooms/houses. Aside from finding this annoying, I actually think it's kind of funny. Getting all steamed up because you hate school and hate those who have school 'easy.' You know you don't hate homeschoolers. The reality is, you hate school and you want to have it easy (or not do it at all) and you're jealous of those who do have it easy. Don't you find that funny? Also, whenever I'm talking to my peers about my school, they ask, "Wait, aren't you homeschooled?" And I say, "Yeah.... so?" C'mon, being a homeschooled kid is probably worse than being a public schooler. First of all, your mom sees you 24/7, which stresses her, therefore she attacks you more than a mom of public schoolers would. Unless your mom works. Second, staying at home means you have to do chores. Even if I'm busy mathing or writing an essay, I STILL get called to do things and then my work is not finished with true heart, or not on time. And homeschoolers do NOT cuddle in bed all day without showering. Because 1. That sounds boring and disgusting. 2. That's not homeschooling, that's cuddling in bed all day without showering. Honestly, people!! We have math textbooks, science projects, and essays!! We do NOT have it easy! You're forgetting that homeschooling has the word 'school' in it. Homeschooling is simply just schooling at home because you're too cool for public schools, because public schools are horrible. But, to sympathize with you, we DO have some things easy. Here, I'll put it in a bullet list.
  • We don't have to shower or get dressed
  • We can get food whenever we want, go to the bathroom whenever we want
  • If we spill food on our clothes, we can change
  • We don't have any haters except our siblings (LOL)
  • We get to use the internet
  • Right after an online class is finished, we can begin the homework right away
There are more advantages, but they vary depending on how your parents set up your homeschool program.

And with that I conclude today's rant.
