Unlucky 13
It's Friday the 13th. Do you feel lucky punk? Well, do ya? If you don't you might have a phobia of Friday the 13th, which is called--take a deep breath--paraskevidekatriaphobia. That's our new word for the day boys and girls.

There's a lot of myths and reasons as to why Friday the 13th is unlucky. Here's a pretty interesting tidbit I found. It's about the Knights Templar:

"On October 13, 1307, a day so infamous that Friday the 13th would become a synonym for ill fortune, officers of King Philip IV of France carried out mass arrests in a well-coordinated dawn raid that left several thousand Templars — knights, sergeants, priests, and serving brethren — in chains, charged with heresy, blasphemy, various obscenities, and homosexual practices. None of these charges was ever proven, even in France — and the Order was found innocent elsewhere — but in the seven years following the arrests, hundreds of Templars suffered excruciating tortures intended to force 'confessions,' and more than a hundred died under torture or were executed by burning at the stake."

Pretty good reason to feel funny about that date, I'd say. I wanted to be witty with all these facts for you but I'm worried/frustrated about this Policy Memo I have to write for class and have no idea where to start.

Today was definetly like Friday the 13th for me. First, I missed my bus and it was raining, then it started some weird ice snow. Ugh. I didn't have an umbrella and I cut my finger on one of the rings of my notebook.

To make matters worse? I got a letter about my loan repayment.

Someone kill me now, please.
