Everyone's in a bad mood, including myself. Maybe it's because Crystal's leaving for Arizona tomorrow for about a week, and we'll all miss her. Or perhaps because it's been a hard day. I don't know. But anyway, it's not exactly the best day in the world.

Plus, I am so mad from reading the fifth Harry Potter book--does anyone absolutely HATE Prof. Umbridge? My anger is really getting in the way of my enjoyment of the reading, and it makes me want to dive into the book and rescue all the poor students from the "high inquisitor" by either strangling her or flushing her down a toilet. A perfect way to get rid of my anger, and I know I have too much of it by far.
Now that I've gotten that off my chest, Prof. McGonagall is sooo cool!

Anyway, enough HP stuff. Now onto some weird intellectual stuff!
Does anyone know why people screw up on things they normally would do fine on when they know they're being watched? I know that this happening is basically a fact, but why does it happen? Is it because people are afraid they'll make a mistake, and so therefore they do?
It sure happens to me a LOT.
Anyway, I'd better be going. I hope everyome has a great day!

I wanted to strangle the woman after reading the book.
To the weird intellecutual thing, I do that because I get nervous when people watch me, its this self concious thing. :-D
