@Roc: I guess so. Is it wrong if I lift 10pounds 200 times in each arm when I just started? (I've been practicing for nearly 2 months)
@Dipu: I thought you were cutting yourself mate. But who cares about school, skip as you like and become a fail everything's gonna be alright. I can't promise though.

    @Jess:
    That's terrible, but so hilarious! X)

    @Nathan:
    Honestly I don't know so much about weight lifting, I use a different muscel building tactic.
    I can lift over twice my weight easily though, so I know it works! :3

    No one in the entire city of New York (well, at least definitely in my school) called it hooky. It's a cut!

      @Dipu:
      I've always heard it called things like 'Hooky', 'Ditching', 'Skipping', 'Tardy', 'Calling In Sick', etc...
      Cutting is new to me though. -,-" (I guess that sort of thing is just regional...)

      Nonetheless, glad you aren't self-harming!...?

      >~>

      Well, I've got things to do, and have lately formed this gross habit of not procrastinating. . .
      See you later, guys.


      Edit:
      Haha, if I remember later I will.

      Tchh we all are a little bit paranoid, hmm?

      At least specify that you cut classes next time, okay? x; Otherwise you're going to have a bunch of people worrying about you like I was I:.

      Also, Roc, how would being careful actually help anything? X} I figure I might've just hurt myself when I was fighting (in a playful, less-violent way) with a friend a couple of days ago. I still can't use one of my arms much without pain, so it's certainly possible.

      Edit:
      Missed several posts.

      I've heard it referred to as cutting before- just misinterpreted Dipu's post.
      I'm sure we all seem so overprotective right now. T:

      ...On the (irrelevant) upside, I found my Cranidos pencil.

      If you say "I'm playing hooky" I'm going to assume you're a time traveler from the 50s.

      Nah, my skin is too nice to get slashed up (the words of almost every girl that knows me, NOT mine).

      And my thoughts exactly, Toujie. Hooky is such an old term. Honestly, cutting's the only word people use in my school.

      I use "skipping" personally. Or I just say "I didn't go" or "I'm not going" or something of that kind.

      What do you do when you cut just one class though? I never understood that in high school, if you're coming back for the rest it's not like you have enough time to do anything. Unless those were all your last class of the day.

      Good. X}
      Though I don't often see people putting it so bluntly haha.

      By the way, have/do any of you buy Pokemon TCG cards online? If so, how ticked off would you be if you found out the ones you bought were fake? I want to sell some of mine, but I'm not totally sure if they all are legitimate. I'd do my best to find out, of course, but still.

      I think I've heard it used only once, outside of movies/books/what have you, and that was back when I was in first or second grade and my principal was talking about "students caught playing hooky will be punished" or something like that.

      ...

      I didn't know what it meant, and I don't even remember what I thought it could possibly stand for ah ha.

      Not going to class = "I'm taking a personal day"

      Makes it sound more professional, because I'm a pro at it.

      The term here is 'wagging', lol. I truly don't see how that term ever got thought up, it makes no sense to me.

        Live, that's just attactive rephrasement.
        Like, you're not impatient, it's just your time management awareness reminding you to be more constructive.
        Or, you're favorite old chair isn't 'flattened and faded', it's personalised.
        Or, "McRib"

        I've heard it called Hooky the most. . .
        Is everything I know a lie?!? D:

        Nothing wrong with Simple Plan imo. (Though that is a lot of Simple Plan tabs.And by the looks of it, it's actually guitar tabs so possibly puns lol. )

            I guess they're just not your kind of music then. :)

            @Drakow I like simple plans more unless you're trying to cause confusion and chaos. (Which I'm sure you are lol.)

            I like naps. Naps are good.

            In other words, I just had a 16hour nap after working my butt off for the last 5 days. Sup chaps?

            I don't sleep well virtually every night, so I'm used to it now. Occasionally, I have to take something to sleep, to break an insomnia rut. One time, though, I forgot that I had taken it, and stayed up on the internet. When I got up to go to bed, I was pretty out of it and was laughing as I stumbled around the house. X}

            Agggh. I spent my morning in poison ivy and mud and having my eardrums blown out by the sound of gunfire from a range very near to those woods. On the upside, I got some pretty decent photos.
