Just me talking about my day

I've said this a million times before, but it's so much fun to hang out with my sister's friends.

I wasn't going to do anything today. I was supposed to go out with my friends, but that didn't work out and I wanted to get out of the house, so I was going to go with my mom to just drop off my sister at the mall and go to Publix. Her friends asked me to come shopping with them (they call me their OSBFFL--older sister best friend for life) and it did help them out having me go because their moms didn't make them check in as often.

So yeah, I wasn't sure I would be able to walk around the mall all day and not collapse, but I held up well. I got tired and dizzy but it was definitely not as bad as I was at school yesterday. Then again, there's a big difference between running on 11 hours of sleep and running on 7. Yeah, I slept 11 hours last night. Haha. I went to bed earlier than I do on school days.

They went into Hollister, Forever 21, Victoria's Secret, and a bunch of other stores I haven't been in probably forever. They went in Betsey Johnson to look at stuff. I think that store looks like the wardrobe room for a Cyndi Lauper music video. I would love to wear stuff like that for Halloween or something, the clothes are so insane they're kind of cool, but I would never wear them in real life. Even if they weren't so expensive that I'm afraid to move in the store.

I'm actually eating the candy corn I got at the Sweet Factory as I write this. I got pink and blue/purple plaid tights at Claire's for like $8.50 total.

I was going to write more about something that isn't related to me, but I got distracted in the middle and it's almost 1 AM now, so this is all you're gonna get.

And my candy corn is gone.

Love,
Juliana

  3. Yeah, I know you're just too busy to read a few paragraphs or even write out tldr. You should find some time once in a while to sit in your room and play WoW and read 4chan.

  4. Ooo, touche.

    And I did read it after I was done with what I was working on. Just noticed the RSS feed icon and had to comment on the title. Sorry.

    That being said, I don't have time to be lazy anymore!

  5. And you're wrong. It is "Just me talking about my day" because I'm using it as a verb in the progressive tense, not as a gerund. So it's like, "just me, talking about my day." It took me a while to figure out what you meant by that. You know, the kind of people who talk like that are the ones who use the formal "one" more than once an essay. And I know for sure that you do that! XD

  6. OK, fine. I actually just looked this up. Both are acceptable today, but under different circumstances.

    It's still quite fun to pull your strings, imo.

  7. To clarify, it depends on what your whole sentence would have been (since your post name is obviously a fragment):

    If you were saying "It's just me, talking about my day", then it's valid. On the other hand, "This is just my talking about my day" is valid, as "talking" is the noun in the sentence. So yeah, i guess it depends on whether or not you're the subject or your talking is.

    And I don't like using the passive voice! I try to avoid writing overly formally, and if I have to, I don't use "one" as much as I used to. :-D

  8. What about that essay you wrote for english last year that you had me read? I thought it was too formal and you said you like writing that way.

  9. Tucker, I don't think that was an invitation to debate grammar. I think it was a "Shut up and leave my blog subjects alone."
