Today is senior ditch day and we're supposed to go to the fair but... um... I'm not doing that. I'd like to but it's not like I have a car. Or a license. Or money. The last one is my fault I'm soo... like adverse to the idea of a job. I always told myself it's because I like my time at home and I'll wait until I get out of school, but I don't really think that's the whole issue. I don't want to get a job because I hate being around people and work is going to be way less lenient about me than school. And also if all goes to plan I'll be in school for another 6 years at least... so that's probably not a good idea. But I do plan on starting commission work after I turn 18 and can stop being paranoid about having a Paypal account, and that'll cover... the fact I like to buy things I hope. We (as in the orchestra. I play the cello.) have a concert today despite it being... senior ditch day. It's gonna be really boring my dad said my brothers don't have to go to this one because it's all of the performing arts. We're playing Skyfall from the movie, get this, Skyfall, with the choir and dance. Except we can't hear the choir or see the dancers so it's kinda a bust for us. Sad! Well there's other concerts. On the topic of school stuff, last year we got to take the ACT for free twice, and I did shockingly good (28 composite baby!) but I want to take it one more time so I could maybe push it to a 30? I mean if I got a 28 without studying who knows what it would be if I knew any of the math. I want to have an Obnoxiously Good ACT score to outweigh my mediocre ass GPA (2.9... baby...). I don't actually know how to sign up so I have to go to the library unfortunately. And... ask... Ugh. I don't know when people do stuff like this. I think lunch, I'm not sure. I think I'm gonna do it at lunch.

I want to make this page the rambles page... look more like a text document and not... just text? in the middle? I'm struggling to like. Do that though. Because it's formatted the same as the other pages and I like the way it's formatted! I may just give up on the idea idk. I also don't know what to do with the Middle of the home... page. I want to add one of those comment boxes but I don't know if it'd fit right there. I keep wanting to go to other people for inspiration but I don't really know how to navigate neocities yet. I tried to put one of those... Hits counters? Is that what you'd call them? on it but it would make the page load weird and I didn't like it. Like it looked fine after a half second but... idk. Also.... Um did you guys know that text decoration will mess with screen readers? All of my buttons have an underlined letter and it makes it split the word into to 2 or 3 words. I don't think I can do anything about that though, you can't add alt text to text. Maybe I could make them into images? I don't want to though... I'm going to try to find a workaround.

I've been playing Dragonvale obsessively lately. Y'know Dragonvale? The 2011 dragon breeding app that produced like 6 copies of it? I've been playing for years I think since 2014 but a lot of those years... I wasn't playing? Y'know? So I'm not as high level as I think I could be. But I'm level 130! I have a google sheets that's going to have every dragon and their element, and I'm so excited to share it publically but it's not done yet. There's over 700. And I'm only on the G's.
