This post is my alternative to watching Finding Nemo.

So, I'm in my web design class right now.
We have a substitute, so we're watching Finding Nemo.

...Why is it that this is always the go-to movie when there is nothing to do in class?
I swear I have only ever watched this movie unwillingly.
 You'd think teachers would realize that a seventeen-year-old's humor is a little bit beyond
 "He touched the butt".

Just kidding. Someone just laughed at that..

I wonder if the kid behind me is reading over my shoulder.
If so;
Uh, hi. Stop reading over my shoulder.

Ugh I still have like 23 minutes left.

Then lunch.
Then Improv.
Then I go home.
and I'm being held up by Finding Nemo.

I would seriously hate to be a substitute.
Kids kinda  know they are just there for attendance, and that's fine, as long as the sub knows that too.
But then there are those subs that try and take charge and teach a class when they don't even know whats going on.

Wait a second haha, I forgot about the part in Finding Nemo where the fish in the fish tank and the pelican are watching the root canal and they keep using correct medical terms only a dentist would know. Hahaha that's really the only good part about this movie. And I love Ellen. And Australian accents.

I actually got yelled at by a substitute last week.
Before the bell rang, I came to class, dropped my stuff off, and went to the bathroom.
When I came back she was yelling at me about how 'I'm late' and 'I can't trick a veteran...'
Yeah ok seriously I wasn't even late, and if i have to use the bathroom I'm going to use the bathroom.
My teacher didn't even care lol.

But we do have one awesome sub.
My friends and I call him Shneebly.
Because he looks exactly like Ned Sneebly from School of Rock.
Not Jack Black. He's Dewey Finn.
I mean actual Ned Shneebly.

Whenever we see him, we're like "YEAHHHH SHNEEBLY!!"
And he just smiles like "hahah hey guysss"
Its so great.
Once we got him to play Improv games with us in class, he was awesome.
And one of my friends got him to do the super long hand shake from School of Rock!

 It was so sick hahaha.

Omg ok!
 Class is ending!
Talk to you soon!

Sandy took away my Halloween and my Jersey shore.

Nobody thought it would be this bad.

I live on the mainland, I was lucky.
We lost power, heat, internet connection, and cell phone service for three days.
Trees came down, power lines came down, the only open stores were empty and dark.
Traffic lights were broken.
Without electricity, there were barely any gas stations open, with lines that extended endlessly.
Our town was trashed, like a warzone.

But we were lucky.
Towns barely miles away from us, near water, Long Beach Island especially, are destroyed.
Nobody is even allowed to go back there yet.
 Its flooded, like a town in the middle of the ocean.
Left people we know and love homeless and in worse situations than we can imagine.
Every shelter is filled.

But whats amazing is every single person I know is volunteering to help.
Everyone has put there own issues aside to do what they can to help those who really need it.
Today I went to a shelter to donate food and medicine, and helped transport food and clothes with my neighbor.
Its not alot, but since EVERYONE is doing a little bit, its making a huge difference.
Im so proud of everyone, thank you.

Its surreal seeing everywhere I grew up in destroyed
LBI and Seaside heights especially.
But we will restore them, I cant imagine not.

Its just weird, this isn't the kind of thing that happens to you.

Oh, and Chris Christie cancelled our Halloween in NJ. Postponed, actually, till Monday. I have work that night though. So cancelled for me. Oh well.
