Shh! It’s a secret!

I’ve always wanted to start a secret society. With fancy induction ceremonies, secret meetings, and sacred rituals. It’s just seemed so cool to me. But I don’t know where and when to start one, and who I should start one with. I’m thinking that at my new private school, I could start one. But maybe I should make a game plan first…

Anyhow, here’s an article I found on the subject. My plan is below.

How to Create a Secret Society

from wikiHow – The How to Manual That You Can Edit

Have you always wanted to be in an exclusive club, but never known of any? Do you wish to be viewed as chic and sophisticated? Start a secret society with only your coolest and closest friends.

Steps

  1. Get a secret! A secret society has a secret to protect. The Illuminati are said to have a secret plan to take over the world (and is said to already be working).
  2. Read a few clique-like books for some background information. Get any number of your friends to read these books. Privately talk with one of your closest friends whom you know will love the idea of starting a secret society.
  3. Think of a name. You and your closest friend should discuss what your secret society should be called. Also discuss who you will induct. Remember, even if you have a large group of (really good) friends, not all of them are secret society material. They won’t find out, as it is a secret society.
  4. Conduct a proper initiation for you and your closest friend. This should be done before you initiate others. That way, you are sure to come up with a good idea. The initiation is one of the most important parts of the society. It has to be something neither of you would do normally. Candle-lighting sets a serious and official tone, and symbolic objects are a must.
  5. Figure out what your society does. There have to be rules. Set a schedule for fun things you can do, ie. dressing alike on certain days, or having monthly rituals. Have fun with it! It’s all about your creativity.
  6. Find potential members. Subtly drop something related to your secret in a conversation with a friend to figure out how they feel about it. Make sure there’s no possibility they ever betray you, make sure they will be okay with the rules. Don’t mention your secret society until you are absolutely sure they can be completely trusted.
  7. Induct your members. Invite your friends to a sleepover and then spring it on them. They will be surprised and excited, and thrilled because they are special.
  8. Keep quiet and have fun. Your friends and you will be closer than ever.

Warnings

  • If you are only choosing certain friends amongst a clique, be prepared to deal with questions if one of your unchosen friends finds out about your secret society; have answers and excuses meticulously prepared!

So it’s saturday (that’s a start), and I got a new iPod!

It’s an iPod nano (generation 3) And it’s RED! Aww, isn’t it so cute? I love it so much already, and I’ve only¬† had it for…what? 2 hours! Wow. Well now I’m listening to Stevie Wonder (<3 Signed sealed delivered I’m yours) It’s our new song (in my advanced singing group). I love to buy the song I’ll be singing soon–get the feel of it, if you get what I mean. And has anyone noticed, Old Navy has the coolest songs??? Like Ingrid Michaelson (The way I am) A while ago, and now they have Lights (Last thing on your mind). It’s like they can predict who the next big thing will be. It’s weird!

ipodYeah. I’m just sort of rambling right now. Oh, the song’s switched. (It’s on shuffle). L:ove Song, Sara Bareillis. I love music!!

Okay, so I have no news on the Demetrius/Lysander/Oberon front, but I’ll see most of them on Monday. So there will be news soon.

Oh yeah, neighbors! A young couple with an adorable 4-year-old girl moved in next door. I’m thinking Adorable Baby-sitting clientele, here! I can’t wait. I can see the girl from my window up here (wow, that sounds stalkerish…). But no, she’s so cute! I hope I look responsible!

Okay, I should probably go now. Oh, the song changed again! First Time, Life House.

Bye!

Hopeless Pursuit

Hey there. I titled my post Hopeless pursuit, not because I am in the process of ‘wooing’ someone, but because someone is ‘wooing’ me. Nice use of english vocab word. His name is Amir. He’s this indian math nerd/mathlete, hopelessly in love with me (sorry to be blunt but there it is). He’s been over-obsessive in school (like “Hey Lena, be my partner?” and I don’t want to be rude so I have to accept. :-P) and now he’s found out my screen name. He AIM’s me every five minutes. It is SO annoying, and I never aim back, except every three hours or so, like “ctn”.

But on the brighter side…guess who might be breaking up with his girlfriend?? DEMETRIUS!!! (Confused? See my list of people with changed names) I am hoping it’s not just a rumor. But he has been very very very flirtatious lately.

SO…that’s all for now. Sorry for the short post…I might post another one later today…

Angry at life?

Hi there…

Well I have been so freaking PISSED lately. My family is always on my back, but the main problem is my friends. So basically, one of my friends (Lise) invited me to her sleepover with a whole bunch of other friends. We formed a little group thing at the beginning of the year. But the thing is, the group thing worked out for everyone BUT me. I feel farther apart from them than before–not closer. But anyway. Lise invited me to her sleepover, and I don’t think I’m gonna go. I know that sounds b**chy, but I just don’t relate to them anymore. They treat me like I’m a spoilsport, just because I don’t ADORE anything related to sex, drugs, and slacker-ness. They call me a suck-up because I get 100%’s on most of my tests (except in math, but my average is still higher than theirs). I just have nothing in common with them. Sadly, they have a LOT in common with each other, and at the beginning of the year we scheduled all our classes to be together. So now I’m stuck with them. They don’t MEAN to leave me out, they just end up doing it because I find them obnoxious and they find me different from them.

Well, I’ve been hanging out with a really nice group of people, and they are really supportive. I won’t name them all here, but basically they’re a lot like me. One of them is teaching me to knit, and they’re all super creative. I just wish that my old friends (see above ^^) didn’t give me dirty looks whenever I hang out with the nicer people.

And then there’s this whole confidence thing. I take voice, and my voice teacher said that if I didn’t become more confident and less perfectionistic, she couldn’t teach me anymore. So I have to get a triple dose of confidence FAST. It doesn’t work that way, though. I scrutinize myself too much, I’m not optimistic, I have some serious issues with my attitude right now, and I just wish I didn’t care what people think.

But I do.

And then BOYS. Boys hate me, and I don’t know why. I try and try. I’m attractive, and I’m nice (and I’m not bragging), and I’m not really to assertive. I’m 14 years old and I have not once had a relationship with anyone. I feel so out of the loop. I mean, I like…3 guys right now. And as far as I can tell, none of them like me back. Well, one did hug me after the musical was over, because I was crying. And another one did sit with me in science (although he talked to his friend at another table the entire time).

I’m just so confused, bewildered, and angry.

At least I’m going to a private high school–which means I never have to see most of the people I’m bitching about EVER AGAIN!

Roller Coaster

Hiya!

Well, I’ve returned from my fab day at school. Lately I’ve been feeling like 1 moment I’m psyched and the next I’m yelling my ass off. Which is why I started this blog…go figure…

Hm. Today was relatively uneventful, aside from ^^ (see above). I made fajitas for dinner…yay!

I have singing tomorrow at 7 AM! Gosh. What will I do?

Boy Civility Count: 3
1–Subject: Homeroom. Notes: Had conversation about coffee.
2–Subject: History. Notes: Had somewhat 1-sided discussion about the rudeness of sitting on someone else’s desk (lol). It was all in good spirit, though. Both parties exchanged laughs.
3–Subject: English. Notes: Had lively conversation about the party in mention’s new band name: SALT (Skill Something Something Something). It was fun I guess…weird though.

Ohhhh wait you don’t know. Here’s my question, taken directly from yahoo answers:

am having MAJOR issues with guys. I can’t seem to carry on a normal conversation with them. They think I’m weird–not unattractive, but unapproachable. I think they might be sort of intimidated (I’m sort of known for being sarcastic to boys). How do I get rid of my reputation?

Well one answer I got was try to be nice to at least 1 boy per day and expand each week. Well…s’working!

Yay!

So now I must go wash my hair, or it will certainly be atrocious tomorrow!
