Well I can't get any tv channels on my television because the cable company is stupid.My digital signal strength is apparently too low and I may need a weird box thing. So I have been watching Netfix on my Xbox and I have run out of things to watch. Nothing seems to look very interesting. If I do find something I want to watch it's rated R.It's so frustrateing! I never really watch movie because I end up falling asleep during them or I will stay up later than normal finishing it and I will regret it the next day. Usually I rewatch Torchwood,Doctor Who,6Teen,and Fruits Basket. I really like Anime but it's hard to find ones that I can watch that aren't inappropriate. Silly Japanese people I guess can't understand that you don't have to put naughty things into their stories. Actually I think a lot of people don't realize that shows and movies could go without language or sexual content. It really ruins things for me. I want to watch Adventure Time and Regular Show now. I hope things will get fixed soon so I can watch my spazzy cartoons.

Last weekend I attended my friend's birthday party. The theme was Doctor Who. Of course it was a lot of fun. We watched Breaking Dawn pt.1.It was and okay movie but I don't think I would ever want to see it again. I brought over my Xbox360 so we could play Left 4 Dead 1 and 2. I really like zombie killing games and it is so much more fun playing with your friend so you can freak out together. For the most part we just were hanging out in her room while playing with her hamster named Jupiter. He was the cutest thing in the world but for some reason he liked to go potty on me and no one else! I also got to try the strange combination of fish fingers and custard which is what The Doctor ate when he met Amelia Pond for the first time. It is a weird tasting meal. I don't think I ever would want to eat it again. I think the best part of the night was either Watching part of the newest Doctor Who Christmas episode or acting like maniacs. I hope that we all get to hang out again soon. We always have an insanely fun time together.

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into my youth room yesterday and got attacked by one of my best friends. Her name is Catie and I absolutely love her. I have been friend with her since we were 6. About three years ago we got the disappointing news that she had to move down to Georgia. It was really hard not having her around but I think it was good for their family. Whenever she comes back It just feels like a breathe of fresh air. She is so positive and uplifting. She has always been that way and I never thought I would miss it so much. Well of course they say things different down in the south and apparently people look at her weird when she says pop instead of soda. She saw the there was a box full of empty cans in the room the had the word "pop" on it. She freaked out and took a picture of it. It was so funny! She says she love Georgia but Iowa feels like her home. I hope someday she comes back and actually stays.

Today I have no school so as usual I sit at home by myself. It's nice being home by myself.I haven't had a lot of time by myself recently. At this moment I am working on an author project about Henry James. I thought I might take a break and blog for awhile because I have been reading for about 2 hours now and nothing is making sense anymore. I also just discovered that my library card won't let me access the library data basses which is what I need for my project due tomorrow. I have a feeling it will not be getting done on time. I can't wait for this paper to be done with. I'm also starting to wonder if my triangle pillow is ever going to arrive!I has been about 4 weeks since I ordered it. I really hope it comes soon even though it did say it could take 6 weeks I can't help but worry where it is. The other thing on my mind was that my uncle came into my room to get his old Xbox and brought his friend with.It was weird.His friend is awesome but I guess I don't want everyone seeing my inner sanctum plus I was trying to sleep so it made it even stranger.

Healthiness is difficult for me. I love to eat junkfood and all the stuff that you shouldn't eat.It wouldn't be so bad if the people I lived with would stop buying it but since it's there I will want to eat it. I have a decent amount of self control but then again sometimes I don't.Lateley I have been trying to not drink as much soda. My goal is to only have maybe 2 or three cans a week. Ever since Christmas break though it has been hard to get back into not drinking as much. I also try to excersize. During the summer I am really good about doing it everyday but when school rolls around it definateley dosen't get done. I am always worn out from school and the last thing I want to do is hop on the excersize bike and work out. Although working out does make me feel better if I'm frustrated or stressed out. I think it would be fun to get a treadmill. My mom and I used to go out for walks and I enjoyed it but we don't do it anymore. The winter weather isn't ideal walking weather I suposse.

So this last weekend my mom and I went up to see one of our friends that used to live in our town. Two years ago we did the same thing around this time. The town is really small and kinda boring. It really makes me thankful to live where I do. We love her and love to come visit her despite the long dive. On the bright side my mom spoiled me and bought me a lot of stuff. She bought me Venom energy drinks and a whole bunch of other junk food. On the way home it was horrendous! It was snowy and slick. My mom was super stressed out and when she get all stressed it starts to freak me out. Luckily we got home safe and we even made a trip to the CoralVille Mall. She again bought me stuff. I got a shirt from Zumiez and the workers were much nicer than the ones at my mall. I also got new shoes! They are a pair of black Vans that were on sale

Since my Xbox 360 was failing me my mom and aunt so kindly went in together to buy me a new Xbox 360. They bought it for me early because they didn't know how long the sale would last. So now I currently have a new Xbox 360! I'm so happy to be able to watch Netfix and other stuff in my room again. I do however have to go out and buy a new hard drive. I barely have any memory space. I don't know when I'm going to get it though. Hopefully it will be soon.I also am getting Batman:Arkham City through the mail. I heard it was really good but difficult. I'm trying to train myself to not get easily frustrated when playing videogames. If I fail at something I get discouraged really easily. Which is not a good quality in a gamer. Practice really helps you get through difficult levels. Also if I walk away from a game for a little bit and come back it usually helps depending on what it is.

On Sunday my Mom and I baked a cake. It wasn't just an ordinary cake. The cake we made was rainbow! We made it for my Grandpa and Grandma's birthdays. It turned out really great. It was packed full of sugary frosting. I had all the colors you could think of except yellow because we didn't have enough cake mix. This had to be one of the greatest cakes I have helped her make. I was really excited to make it. Someday I hope I will be able to proudly say I did one by myself. It actually takes a lot of work. I am also going to help my Mom with a TARDIS cake hopefully. My friend is having a Doctor Who party and they asked my mom do do the cake because she did one for me on my 16th birthday.Her cake will be different though and less extravagant unfortunately.
