School is for Kids with a Future

   I can tell because I am in school and do not like it. Honestly, switching may have been the wrong idea, but I'm pretty sure that I'm just forgetting how truly awful Santa Fe High was. I look at my classmates, and I'm like, "That kid's an idiot," but then I remember that I knew someone just like him at Santa Fe High.
   I think the good thing is that even though my new school does have morons and douches and thugs, it's different from Santa Fe High in that they aren't worshipped like gods here. Here, they're just stupid kids. Not the ones that really own the school.
   Did I ever mention Gabe?
   Funny story behind Gabe, but one for another time. The overarching idea is that the kid is an annoying shit head, but for whatever reason I've been in school with him for the last three years, and this is the fourth. But Noah came up with a plan. We're all just going to call him Josh. Not like in an annoying way, just in a, "Isn't your name Josh?" kinda way.
   That is, if we ever talk to him at all. Right now he's a loner, and honestly I'd prefer to keep it that way, unless we can shove my friend Sam off on him. Sam... well, I was told by Danny to not let him become a reject, but I'm hpoing I can do that, well, without being around him much.
   Really, him and Gabe would make a great duo, the "funny" (read: not funny) fat one, and the "smart" (read: not smart) little one.
   But I guess I'm liking it overall. We have to do a set amount of community service every year, so I'm kinda like "fuck that," and the organization could be better (that said, it's better than Santa Fe High's), but I think that in the end, making the switch was the right idea.
   Ugh, basketball. I haven't gotten to play in like five days, and I'm desperate just to hold a basketball at this point. I'm still considering trying out for the team, but honestly it might be better for me to take another year to improve, actually try. But on the other hand, if I punk out this year I probably will next year, too. But whatever.
   Just a update on my life.
   Oh yeah. Today I talked to Leyla over Facebook. I don't think I've ever talked about Leyla on this blog, but she went to elementary school with me, and last year we got to be pretty good friends. I've kinda missed her, because she was the only girl I've like ever talked to on a regular basis. Our conversation went something like this:
   "Hey Leyla, have you started school yet?"
   "Are you taking an engineering class?"
   "But everything's going well?"
   No, really, guys. Girls like me.

   Hey guys, I have a Deviantart. It's right here. I really just draw thug gorillas and Pokemon but if that's your cup of tea feel free to check it out, I guess. School starts tomorrow. Well, orientation. So... fuck. I know Santa Fe High started on Monday, so I texted Miguel. I wanted to know when basketball tryouts are. I tried to play it kinda cool, you know, I wasn't gonna be like, "Man, I'm gonna make the basketball team against all odds, so tell me when I can!"
   So my text went something like, "Hey man, do you know when basketball tryouts are at your school?"
   His response:
   I don't think Miguel has faith in my basketball playing abilities. I'm trying to do some more art recently, cuz in the past month or so I've done barely any. As such, I went and drew like a dozen things over the weekend, and I have at least 10 more planned. I just need to find the time and motivation to actually finish pieces that I start.
   All that I've been listening to is mainstream rap, and I'm not really sure why. I worry that I'm starting to like Drake. I like Big Sean. "I Do It" certainly has its moments. I've also been listening to Sahtyre's live version of "Miss Communication" on Knocksteady Live.
   But fuck, I'm so not ready for school. Ugh, I really don't want to have to start dealing with other human beings again. Ugh. I mentioned  a while back the Hawaiian phrase "futless," which is kinda how I feel now, except just kinda not looking forward to anything at all. But whatever. As soon as I digitalize all my data for the summer (in terms of basketball), I'll post it here, so my readers (lol) can see how little I improved despite my efforts.

I Live for LoL

   It's all I've been doing for like three days. Unfortunately, at my mom's house the computer is pretty slow, and I lag a lot. But whatever. If there is one flaw with the game, it's the people who play it. Seriously, how come every single League of Legends player who isn't a noob is a total douche?
   Just now, I was playing on Summoner's Rift, I spent all early game grinding in the bottom lane with a guy playing Wukong (who was even more of a noob than me). By midgame, the Wukong guy had quit, but I had a ton of levels and gold on everyone, so I just kept pushing the bottom lane. I was at the Inhibitor tower and retreating, and I got ganked by the three strongest of the other team's players.
   Suddenly, this dude playing Kassadin goes, "dude what the fuck are you doing pushing by yourself?"
   I said, "I didn't see the other team, I thought you guys were dealing with them, so I thought I could push by myself." That's reasonable, because I'm playing a DPS Nasus, and obviously I can clear the lane easily. But the dude keeps being a douche, so I decide to group in mid and push with the rest of the team (minus Wukong). We all died.
   So the dude goes, "wtf r u gys doing we were winning?"
   And I'm kinda thinking, "Oh, you mean when I was pushing bot successfully and about to start spawning super minions?"
   We ended up winning. Now, I'm not great at LoL. Of course, I'm just a noob myself. Still, I ended up going like 3/13/7, with almost 200 minion kills and four tower destroys. But I never understood why someone can't be good at a video game and still be a good person. You damn straight I reported that bitch for flaming, and the Wukong guy for leaving.
   I mean, I guess I would feel the same way if I were a really good player, but I mean, why didn't he just tell me what to do instead of being a dick? And it's not like we're playing ranked matches or anything. The only reason I didn't flame his ass back is to avoid being reported.

Fuck LoL

   Another day with no song because I thought it might be interesting to go back and see what songs I had stuck in my head but it turns out it was a really dumb idea that I don't care about. So I guess no more Song of the Day.
   So, I have like 100 GB of free space on this computer, so I was like, "Hey, I'm gonna install League of Legends." I've seen some of the art work on YouTube and I really like it, and I watched a video by TheAcousticKind and I thought the gameplay looked fun. The way I figured it, I had nothing to lose.
   Except time. I've been waiting like five hours for this goddamn gae to install and update patches. The worst part is that the time remaining keeps going up while I'm not looking, so I'm like, "Oh, well I can afford to stay up another 15 minutes for the install to finish." But then a half hour later it says "15 minutes remaining." But whatever. I've been looking for something to do to fill up my time in these last few weeks before school starts, and I figure getting into a new game will do just fine.
   Seriously, what the shit is wrong with these programmers that they couldn't put the patches into the installation? I mean, really, what the fuck? Huh.
   I need to do some art. But lately I've been very uninspired (another thing I think LoL will kinda help with, since the art direction is so great), so meh. I'm not one of those guys who can just sit and draw.
   For the upcoming year, I plan on doing a character list. Like for my life. So that that way, I don't need to explain every person I ever talk about in my stories. I dunno. I think it could be interesting at the least. Ugh. I dunno. In Hawaiian pidgin, there's a phrase, "futless." It's a feeling between bored and frustrated and "meh." That's kinda just how I've been the past few days. Mostly bored though.
   I've stepped up my basketball routine, in the hopes that in the next few weeks my skills will improve exponentially and I can make the team. Maybe that's why I've been futless. 'Cause I've been working all summer at playing basketball, and honestly I'm not that much better than I was at the end of the school year. Meh.
   I'm only writing this because I'm bored. Waiting for League of Legends to patch. Only 53:56 and 489 MB remaining...

   No song of the day because I am lazy.
   Sometimes I have to update this blog. I keep thinking I'm gonna write movie reviews, then I get lazy and think I'll do it later. Then I don't because I'm lazy. By the time I actually want to do it, the movie is like a month old and I feel like there's no point. WHATEVER MAN
   Um. I hhhhierrrregfnho
   Oh! School starts in like two weeks. That really sucks, because I am definitely not as good at basketball as I hoped to be by the end of summer, and most definitely not good enough to make the team.
   I read Grendel. Did I already mention that? Idk. WHATEVER MAN "
   i am sso kcooooooooooooooooooool
