You see, there is a big difference between a girl and a girl having her period.
A girl having her period...
Spot the difference?
To further elaborate this, lemme' tell you what happened to me during these past few days.
2 days before my period...
We were at SAR, our usual hang out in school since the caf is congested and noisy. We just finished eating, and everyone in the circle was studying for our tax quiz. I was studying with them too, until…
All of a sudden, my mind zoned into a realm of pessimism and I recalled all the miserable things that had happened to me in all 20 years of my life! I lost my will to study and spent half of my break (that’s 1 ½ hours) staring into nothingness and sulking in deep sorrow and self pity. The next half I felt guilty of not studying so I finally did study... And remained depressed the whole time.
After school, when I was on my way home, with my depressed thoughts, I was organizing my supposed to be activities when I get home. But as I got home, I found my bed exceptionally inviting that day. I tried my hardest to resist, but there was something different. Unlike any other day, it was "restable"! It was clear from my usual crap. Cause usually my bed looks like this:
But that day, it looked like this:
Hence, it was successful at luring me. So I slept, woke up late, and as soon as I woke up, found responsibilities waiting to be smacked down on me. That bed was evil, keeping me from being the responsible kid that I am.
1 day before my period...
I had another exam (Sales Management). Due to my laziness the day before, I had failed to study. So as my ingenious solution, I set my alarm clock at 4:00.
But when my alarm rang...
Hah! I did wake up! To those who know me personally, you probably thought I wouldn’t. But I did. :p
... so I was convinced that I was doomed.
My test was in essay questions. If you’re thinking that that probably saved my ass, because one can always rely on her ever imaginative reasoning skills at making stuff up and connecting things. Unfortunately, this skill is useless, as it asked to identify stuff before explaining it. So if you’re wondering what I put on my exam... Well, while the exam was for my Sales Management subject, my answers were all based on my Business Policy subject (the subject I had managed to study for the exam I had days before).
After the test, I went home to fetch things for an activity in school. I found my helpless little brother as a subject of mischief. Being a kind person though, I approached him in a subtle way. I asked for his help in preparing for what I needed in school. After he was done helping me, I immediately fired of tantrums and rants of how a lousy brother he is. I realized how mean I was, I feel guilty about it now. (He's actually the opposite! He's kind, sweet. and caring. I couldn't ask for a better brother. He's the best brother in the whole wide world! I love him so much!)
The next day, I finally had my period. I realized then the reason behind my unstable behavior and abrupt laziness. Instead of controlling it though, I was a loose cannon!
Here's the summary of what I did that day:
Went to Galleria with family for church…
At the service...
After the service, when we got home...
At 2pm I finally rose from my bed. And I forgot what I did next. No, actually I do remember, but I'm too lazy to put it here.
So what's the point of my blog? My point is when a girl has her period she's either lazy and apathetic or hazardously raging.
There are long scientific explanations behind this. But they're too complex and boring to discuss in my blog. Anyway, I have a better explanation that will put all these explanations in a nutshell!

This is how a girl is on a normal basis:
This is how a girl is during her period:
See the difference? It makes a lot sense right? So girls, if you feel like this, you're probably about to have your period. Boys, if you notice that your mom/girlfriend/female friend/sister looks like a hungry red Super Saiyan Vegeta with horns, give them a break. They're on their period.
