Called to see if your back
Is still aligned, and your sheets
were growing grass all on the corners of your bed.
And you've got too much to wear on your sleeves.
It's got too much to do with me.
And secretly I want to bury in the yard,
the grey remains of a friendship scarred.
[Kissing the Lipless- The Shins]
It's been stuck in my head, doesn't necessarily have meaning :P.
Last week was hopefully the end of my stressful frenzy :). It's the week before Prom now, but I'm realizing that everything is set in stone now, and there's no sense in worrying. Now I just get to watch the magic or chaos unfold, and make do with whatever happens. The tickets are bought, the dress is being picked up tomorrow, and I'm ready for it. I spent most of this weekend with Amanda and Julie. Friday night I slept over at Julie's after venturing around town running errands/destroying boredom. We wound up laying in her bed for the rest of the night playing with her cute little ferret :), and watching Dexter on dvd. I'm starting to get hooked on that show, by the way. The next day was even better. We dug our old rollerblades out of the closet, I had to borrow a pair from Amanda, and we took to the streets. Since the sidewalks here are awful, I drove us to a more roller-friendly town nearby. I was embaressingly clumsy, since the last time I went "rollerblading" was at some indoor skate rink ages ago. Amanda and Julie were quick to help though, pulling me behind them for the beginning of it. Once Julie went down a small hill with me, without me crashing, I gained some confidence at it :P. I was still slow at it, but progress was made. Oh, we also ran into this little gang of 8ish year old bikers. They were hitting jumps at this sandpit place we were passing through. I felt slightly intimidated... haha. It was lame. One of them, assumably their leader, was like "Hey ladies, how about you show us a 360." So Julie and I awkwarded stepped a circle, since you obviously can't glide with ease on sand, haha. Then we gave the kids a thumbs up and continued on our way. Unfortunately we ran into the little troublemakers a few more times on our journey, but we avoided conversation :P. All the skating around became tiresome, so we stopped for icecream at Stewarts. I got my favorite flavor, birthday cake. Once we were refreshed we headed back to where I parked, next to the local park. It was there that we played like born-again elementary kids, with pictures to prove it.
I actually had the worst fear of the firepoles when I was younger. :P
Julie made a new friend. Too bad she's two feet tall :P.
After that was all over and done with, I went back to hang out at Julie's for the rest of the night. Sunday morning I went home to celebrate Mothers' Day. I picked up an icecream cake which we ate over at my Grandma's house, and stayed there for awhile. Then I gave my mom a card and her favorite chocolate, Turtles. I wanted to get her something Star-Trekky, but I ran out of time. Since my computer was on a little hiatus, the internet wasn't functioning, I tried to be productive. I cleaned my room, did some much needed organizing, and read in the latest English assignment, Animal Farm. I actually enjoyed reading it.
Basically more than half of the juniors, probably 75% of them, went on a Business field trip today. I escaped the dreaded Financial Literacy course this year, I'll most likely be plagued by it the next . But this meant all of my classes were extraordinarily small, ergo studyhalls ;). It was nice being able to do..nothing all day. Actually I finished my English throughout them, but it was still cool. So tonight I was homework-free. I got my research paper back, graded a 98. I'm satisfied.
[H]ouse fans; What did you think of tonight's episode? I got sort of confused at the end of it, because Tom was leaving and I was trying to pay attention simutaneously. I can't believe he ended up where he did though D: Thoughts?
Well, I think I have run out of interesting things to ramble on about :P.
