hey everyone. Have you guys seen the show Touch? Its absolutely amazing i'm catching up right now. This is my third one in a row. I want to write a book like it. Like 4-5 totally different strangers who end up some how connected in the most insane ways.

I've been fiddling around with that idea since i was about 14 and watched this one movie i think it was called 11:15. But it was awesome. Although i really dont think i have the skills to pull off something as awesome as Touch.

Anyway how is everyone today?

hahahahah Do you mean Ally?

I'm so tired.... I really need to sleep but i'm really hungry too.

Today has just not been a good day. After all that work on my take home test a few kids were like "Could we hand it in monday."

If i asked that he would have laughed at me, but no, he told them "Sure no problem" ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I just spent the last three nights barely sleeping in hopes of figuring out what the hell to do and you give them a whole weekend to CATCH UP! NOOOOOOOO!!! GRRRRRRRR!!!

Oops! Sorry! I hardly check my User CP when the thread is active and simply refreshing the page is enough to find something new! haha

Sending it in a moment - tweaking it a bit again!

Doesn't mean they'll WANT it, though. Just means they'll get it.

WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT.

I've seen so many ads for Touch, I'm going to start to watch it. I've been meaning to lately, but I've kept forgetting... Thanks, Ally, for bringing that up! :p

(Post count is 1818... I find that odd and cool and everything... :p)
