Dead too soon...

Or should I say, "gone too soon", as the song goes? (If you don't know that song, it's a Michael Jackson song, which ironically applies to him now even though he wrote it for someone else) But anyways, what I mean is that no one has posted in this blog for a long time. Seriously. In fact, not since the beginning of this summer back in June. Where are all the Himes?! I guess this is why independent blogs are easier, because the only one who posts is yourself. In fact, it seems The Ranting of the Hime♫s only reached a disheartening total of less than 40 posts. So everyone, come back down to Earth from whatever distant lands and planets you have wandered off to. (Probably you're all still on Earth, but never mind that.)

I guess it's time for me to rant a little, about the school year. I took French because apparently it's harder so you have a better chance of getting into a "good" college. Also, I didn't really want to take Spanish or Mandarin. I would've taken Japanese but of course they didn't offer it. If I just took it in high school I wouldn't be able to reach Japanese 5 (AP). So here I am taking French instead. It is not very easy. Rarely is something ever pronounced the way it looks. Like c'est, where basically the st is silent. I don't know if I can handle Japanese, Mandarin, Shanghainese, English, and French words all trying to crowd into my brain.

Not only that, but after long hiatus, my parents are now attempting to set a limit on my computer time again. Usually they give up on it especially since when I was younger I already had more free time. Now I'm in 8th grade and expected to get more homework than the past years, so my parents figure they should cut off the computer time so I have enough time to do other things. Since I usually use the computer more than an hour every day, it's pretty drastic if I try to cut it down to 30 minutes. I'd rather have a gradual change if I really have to. But my mom is pretty stubborn so she wants it to be reduced as soon as possible. She says I won't be able to go to a good college or have a job that earns enough income unless I study hard now. It's at times like this that I miss when I was young and my parents and I were all happier...At least, I think.

Well, I should probably not write too much here, so that will be the end of it. I hope no one has gotten in a horrific accident.
