I took my little brother swimming today. We spent about 6 hours swimming and lounging around outside. The only break was a 15 minute break for lunch and then 15 minutes more to let that food calm down before being rowdy in the water some more. It was quite fun. My little brother has a sunburn but it isn't too bad. We applied sunscreen to him a couple times. He's just so pale, the sun couldn't resist, lol. I'm red but I never burn. I'll be tan tomorrow. I'm awesome like that. =) People watching at the pool is great too. I wanted to slap quite a few people. Especially the guy who put his face in his girlfriend's crotch and shook his face around down there for a few minutes. I wouldn't care but there were little kids out there and he did it in front of them. I didn't punch anyone or do anything silly. Sigh. I hate the sun but I absolutely love swimming and being in the water in general. =)

I'm happy I changed my blog around. I feel like this layout fits me so much better. I look at it and feel that it reflects me greatly. I love it. =)

I still want to post some pictures from the trip from Texas to California. I'll get to it sooner or later, lol.

There's a lack of posting going on around here lately. I'm semi settled in in CA. I need to buy some things for organization purposes so things aren't so cluttered. I haven't been too busy to write. I just haven't felt like writing lately. Even when I don't blog, I usually write. Just to clear my head. To get away for half an hour or however long I end up writing for. I really enjoy it. I haven't been writing lately at all. It's not for lack of things to say. It's not for lack of things I want to get out of my mind or off my chest. I just haven't felt the urge to. I've got the want but just haven't had the drive to do it. I have been going around reading blogs but I haven't been commenting. I just seem mentally stuck lately, lol.

1. What were you known as in School (Jock, Princess, Geek)?

I wasn't know as one thing. I played a lot of sports. I drank, smoked, did drugs and partied a lot. I dressed all in black and "goth" clothing, dark makeup, piercings and crazy hair colors.
I was/am really intelligent and always made the honor roll. I have always had a very diverse group of friends. I never really fit in one place or another.

2. What were you really?

Myself. Which doesn't mean I was happy with that, I wasn't. I'm still not happy with myself. I just know who I am and accepted myself flaws and all. Being completely happy with all that mess (me, lol) still hasn't happened yet. I'm sure one day it will. =)

3. If you could go back and tell your 16 year old self one thing, what would it be?

I'd tell myself to slow down.

4. If you could erase one moment from your school days what would it be?

I have no idea honestly. Everything has happened the way it was and got me to where I am now. I'm okay with that for the most part so why erase something that happened so long ago anyway?

5. Who did you not date (or more) that you wish you did?

There is no one I didn't date that I wish I had dated. There are a couple I dated and tons more I pursued that I should not have, lol.

*Bonus* If you went to prom, describe your outfit.

I didn't go to any prom. I got invited to two and didn't go to either. One of my ex's wanted me to go to his with him and I just had so little interest in it. He ended up not going anyway.
I saw it as a giant waste of time and had zero interest in ever going to a thing like that. No offense to anyone. I was more interested in any after-prom parties I might be able to attend, lol. =)

Please remember to play Wednesday Weirdness tomorrow! Another Suburban Mom submitted some questions in recently and we decided to post them up tomorrow. Come play with us! ;)

I feel the same way about the sun and water. I burn like crazy, but could spend an entire day in the pool.

Loved your TMI answers. I had gotten a facebook account and have reconnected with many HS friends and got inspired.

Lilly said...

God I hated HS.

I like the new layout, it's very rocker chic :)

Biscuit said...


Took me, ohhhh, 20 years longer to get to the point where I was perfectly happy being known as "myself."

I can so identify with the mental rut lately!

Paul B said...

Sounds like HS was relatively good to you, eh? No traumatic experiences or anything.

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

I don't see the point of prom either. *shakes head*

Lucky girl, I burn in the sun--and never tan. :P

Happy TMI!

Samantha said...

Ditto to the swimming comment ;o)Have a great TMI!

David said...

I was and still am the proverbial square peg. Now that I've met and developed close friendships with fellow freaks, I wouldn't change who I am.

Amorous Rocker said...

I don't really burn. I'm red for a day but it doesn't hurt or bother me at all. Then the next day, I'm tan. I just hate being in the sun, lol. =)
Thank you! That's cool. I enjoyed the questions!

Lol. I started hating school around 6th grade. I just couldn't wait to be done and move on to "better" things, lol.
Thank you!

Hehe, I didn't say I was happy with it. I'm still not happy with myself. I just know who I am and can accept myself flaws and all. Being completely happy with all that mess still hasn't happened yet. I'm sure one day it will. =)
I'm glad I'm not the only one whose mind is in a rut! Lol.

paul b:
School was always okay for me. I just wanted to be done but I tried to make the best out of it. The traumatic things I endured weren't school related, lol.

ms. i:
Glad I'm not the only one! I don't know hardly any other people who agree with that. =)
Awww. ((hugs)) Hehe.

Thank you!! =)

Good! =)

Lil Bit said...

fun answers! - really liked your answer to #4. Much better way to say it than I did. lol

dunno if I can play Wed Weirdness tomorrow, but now that I know it exists, I'll try to play sometime, k?

Rage said...

Some of us just run into a time where we hit that roadblock.

We can think, but can't write. We can write, but don't want to.

It happens.

Happy TMI!

Shannon H. said...

I am 37 years old and I am still not happy with myself and I dont think I have ever really found myself.

Southern Sage said...

good answers

glad you didn't punch anyone at the pool!

C. said...

Glad things are going well in California.

High School....ugh...!

Kittie Kate said...

That guy at the pool was an idiot. The girl was stupid too. Geez, kids grow up too fast anyways. don't need any extra ideas. that guy was selfish too, selfish for his environment.

I liked your TMI answers.

I like the new layout. I like Jack the Pumpkin King.

Amorous Rocker said...

Lil Bit:
Thank you! Lol.
If you ever have time, that's great! =)

Rage :
Hehe, exactly. =)

Shannon H.:
I wonder how many people truly do.

Southern Sage:
Good thing I didn't punch anyone, that would be bad, lol.

Thank you!
Ugh. =)

Kittie Kate :
They were both idiots. I tend to mouth off to people like that. Generally does no good though.
Thank you!
I love Jack. =)

Great answers... If your prom(s) was anything like mine, you didn't miss much. Dance for 10 minutes, snack table for 5 minutes, sit on bleachers for 5, repeat. Rather lame.
