I have a Heroic Quest myth due on Monday (having to follow the Monomyth guidelines), science problems on Heat and Thermal Energy due, and math homework. I also have to read "The Odyssey" and take a test over it on Monday. Oh, and I have to read "It's All in You Head" for my expanded learning program class. -_-

BUT FEAR NOT. I'm here now... /handsSnickers
First things first: it gets better. We're in a really tough spot right now, Soph, all of us 8th graders, applying and stressing and worrying the freak out about test scores and being perfect role models and shit. It's horrid to go through depression on top of this, but you know how life goes: it doesn't give a fuck. It hands us stuff on a silver platter but we don't know whether it's poisoned or not, and when we refuse to try it, we get no other food, no nourishment to keep us going. I was like that too, remember? I didn't recognize myself or anyone, I was just an emotionless drifting organism and I didn't feel at all, it was horrible, it was terrifying, and ultimately, it was RIDICULOUS. Because Sophie, let me ask you this: what is the point of life if not to live? Indeed, we MUST live, because it's our duty to the world. We intruded upon it and made it bad, we live to fix it and fix ourselves in the process--at least, this is what I believe. Okay? Do you see what I'm saying? This is why I've been so frustrated lately: I want to get out and DO something, I don't feel like living MY life anymore--I want to go on an adventure and I want to be passionate and brave instead of sniveling and feeling nothing, and I think you'd rather that to the alternative as well. Unfortunately, since we can't just get the fuck away because of reasons I articulated in my rant (see: when I'm saying why I can't kill myself, it's basically the same reasons), we must deal with life as it comes to us. And within our boring monotony, we must find ways to LIVE within our life. We mustn't shake our heads and sigh at every little thing. Fill yourself up while you can, Sophie, life is short and never forget it. Live each and every day with no roleplaying but yourself: become yourself, FIND yourself. I know it's not such an easy thing to do. I know it gets so goddamn hard and you want to cry. But you can't cry--you know that. You'll do no such thing as pathetic and weak as cry. (Even if some tears do not fit the qualification, it makes you feel burning up from within and saddens you more. I advise against crying for the time being. Screaming into pillows, on the other hand...) Conjure up emotion and really FEEL it. Read poetry, lots and lots of poetry--poetry is good for getting the emotional juices flowing. And write poetry, too--you're excellent at that, it shouldn't be a problem. Live your normal, common, exhausting, everyday life, and live it WELL. Enjoy your time because believe it or not, you don't have much left. That's my advice to you.

I know, and the worst part is that I feel like I'm trying, but it's just like an elephant came along and said whoops, oopsie, I just sat on a person, and I'm squished, and I'm getting crushed, slowly, slowly, underneath my own weight, my weight- that's the pity I'm carrying around, which bring me back to my first point. Which was. That I don't think I'm trying hard enough. So, I'm not depressed, I just feel like a failure.

Okay, this is actually serious.

My grandparents have these really tiny black bugs in their house. They bite my grandparents and burrow under their skin and lay larva. We've checked everything on the web but there's literally nothing that matches the description of these bugs. They've tried fumigating the house and everything, but the bugs are still there. My grandparents don't want to leave their house because they feel bad for having to stay at other people's houses/use their kids' money to stay at hotels. My grandma just had an anxiety attack today and my grandpa's depressed.

Please guys, I just need your prayers. If you know anything about these bugs, please tell me... because my grandparents are already really old and I don't want anymore stress being placed on them.

And the rest of our problems aren't?

Do they look like this?:

My dad says he's seen those a lot when he was a kid and when he slaps them, they're full of blood. He's confirmed that they're tiny, black, bite people and burrow under their skin and lay larva, so it might be wood fleas.

Holy crap, I am so glad that where I live is too cold to host any crazy bugs other than mildly irritating ticks...

I read it somewhere that if you tighten your muscles when a mosquito is on you, they'd burst from too much blood.
Is it snowing in wherever you live, Sandy? Last night was so warm that I actually needed to switch on the air-conditioning -_- This morning is better, though.
