I found the best way to deal with parents punishing you is NOT to cry, complain, pout, or whine. Nay, ye must simply put on your best 'And I care...?' face and do NOT show any emotion. In my case, this is easy, because I actually don't care.
Anyway. Do you think that when a guy, namely Basil, randomly starts talking to his friend RIGHT NEXT TO YOU about the girl he likes, that it's a coincedence? Does he do it on purpose or does he really not care? I wonder what he thought of me staring blankly at the wall the entire conversation?
Oh, and he totally said my name today. Hee.
