Stiffness and soreness are the two words that best described today. Groans could be heard from all corners of the room all throughout the day as people struggled to get out of their desks or walk down the hallways. A muscle right near my knee joint started twitching halfway through the day, and Zac could barely move his neck, groaning in pain every time he laughed.
On top of stiffness, my neck also hurt because of my sore throat. I’m not sure whether I caught it from skiing or whether I caught my dad’s cold, or maybe a combination of both, but something in my neck was really aching all day. Maybe it was my tonsils? I really don’t know. When I woke up I could barely hear myself because my voice was below the human range of hearing. Everything just hurt.
There’s something to be said in favour of adrenaline. It gives an incredible rush, makes you more alert, and numbs pain all at the same time. Unfortunately, once it wears off, the pain comes back in full force for retaliation, and your alertness level becomes almost nonexistent. At least in roller coasters you don’t feel physical pain.

It seems almost a curse that men are attracted to them at all, because they only bring headaches and monetary loss from the moment they enter a male’s life. And while the concentration of this pain depends somewhat on the individual, there are certain characteristics that all females share which just bug me so much that I must mention them.
First off is their annoying ability to come across as totally innocent while it’s all someone else’s fault. Usually that someone else is male. This partially has to do with society’s views of women and the feminist movement. When a female teacher sexually harasses a male student of theirs, it barely makes the news. If it does, the attitude is either that the guy wanted it since all guys are entirely and solely focussed on sex 100% of the time, or that the guy should have been able to fend for himself and get out of the situation. The teacher is barely pinned on as being at fault because obviously a 7-year-old male child is physically stronger than a 30-year-old female teacher and should have been able to get away.
When a male teacher sexually harasses a female student, it makes major headlines all over the place. Why? Because men are solely focussed on sex and the student could not have had anything to do with it, even though she probably wore low halter-tops and short miniskirts. But of course, that’s…Continue Reading
