For those of you who don't know me, I'm Maple, aka the Queen of Inactivity. I've been around since December 2009.
For those of you who already knew that and are going "WHAT THE BANANAS MAPLE YOU'RE BACK YOU MISSED SO MUCH BIRCHY'S BEING POTTY TRAINED AND WHERE WERE YOU WHAT ARE YOU DOING BACK AND WHY DID YOU LEAVE." (Sorry Birchy. :D)
Yeah, I've been inactive. First my computer broke, then I went to camp for a month, and then I had ANOTHER concussion and had to come home early from camp, and then rowing started and yeah.
High school also happened, and it's my freshman year. :| I'm at like an 82% average, which is really bad for me.
So yeah, long weekend, in PA for the weekend for a regatta which are like rowing races. So what have you mis…
Okay, ****iest day of my life.
It didn't start out that crappy. It started out normal. Sleep in, get up, get dressed, spend 5 minutes looking for a pair of socks, realize I'm sitting on them, etc.
Things go downhill around 4:30 pm. We were derigging the boats (we have a reggetta tomorrow), when one of the coaches comes up to me, and sends me to my mum. Mum's crying, and I assume it's her mom who's passed away.
It was my dad's father. He was hit my a car around 3:00, sent to hospital, and died at 4:00.
So after sobbing for the past...4 hours, I needed to come out and rant.
I'm missing my Middle School Grad Dance tonight, and I'm missing the regatta tomorrow. I'm feeling nauseous, and want to curl up in a little ball.
So, if poof for longer t…
So, one year ago (exactly), I wrote a blog about having a concussion.
You know what I'm going to do this year?
THE SAME THING.
So, let me explain this year's concussion, which caused me to be very confused yesterday. And spacey. And nauseous. And...yeah.
So, yesterday I was at rowing practice. We're still indoors (If it had been outside, I wouldn't have had a concussion. But the boat would've tipped.)
So, with SOPA all over and done with, many of us are happy. Unfortunately, there's kinda been another law in the background...
ACTA stands for "Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement." And you know what sucks? The talks have been going on since 2008. And almost nobody has heard of it.
I found out a couple of weeks ago, but I thought it was going to be another SOPA. "OMG INTERNET SHUTTING DOWN END OF THE WORLD OH NOES!"
So, what is ACTA?
ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is a new law that was originally developed in 2006 by US and Japan. It would apply to the foudning countries, and the countries that have since joined the discussion - to Scotland, Australia, the EU, England, South Korea, Canada, and some other countries. And it will…
