Wow, post #100 :)!
I'm finally catching up to you guys! Sorta.. :P. There's still bloggers like Hannah who I'm lightyears behind with my posting, haha. But I'm getting there I suppose. I just want to say thanks to everyone. When I made this, I figured it would be just for myself, I never imagined it would actually be social, haha. It's awesome though, I love reading everyone's blogs, and I'm glad you guys take the time to read mine :).
So I think my whole dress fiasco is straightened out. I received a voicemail today from the place I bought it, saying it came in and is ready for me to come in and have altered tomorrow. I can't even explain how RELIEVED I am. It's been making me nervous for quite awhile now. Prom in general seems to be coming together last minute. I have had meetings all throughout the past weeks trying to organize things, and make final decisions. So it feels good to see it beginning to pay off. Our tickets went from a whopping $75.00/ticket, $150/couple to a reduced price of $40 or 50/person, depending on if you participated in fundraisers. SO MUCH BETTER. This week I actually got to go to a meeting at the lodge where our Prom is being held, so it was really cool being able to go inside the place and scope it out. I thought the place was neat, we're going to have an enjoyable time there :).
I dare you.
This past week I upgraded my phone :). I had the same Samsung for two years, and we got this coupon thing, so my mom took me to the Verizon store to get the LG Dare. Ahh, I'm in love with it. Touchy-feely screens are the coolest. It takes some getting used to though, having smaller fingers than I already do would be a bonus. My background is Amanda, Tom, and myself at a Rise Against concert.
Tuesday was my scheduled interview for New Visions. I was the first person they would speak to, so needless to say I was a little nervous. I kept my cool though, practicing giving the answers to their questions on the drive to the place :P. I undoubtably sounded like a madwoman, talking to myself for atleast 20 minutes, hahah. It helped though, because I remained pretty calm and collected when it was the real thing. Sure there was a time or two where my voice became slightly shaky, but I felt like I convered it up decently. They seemed to like me, but I'm not sure if I stood out to them or not. The program is highly selective, so we shall see. It probably didn't help when I forgot to bring my photo-release form, hahah. Oh well, whatever happens, happens. We find out if we are accepted next week, so I'll be sure to let you all know how it works out. It was nice being able to miss a period of school though, especially since it was chemistry, haha. I allowed myself to wind down on my way home by stopping by my favorite coffeeshop and grabbing a delicious butterscotch chai tea latte.
Interview attire. (What you can't see, is how I had to craftily "shorten" my slacks using safety pins and paperclips. I hope it wasn't noticable, hahah. But otherwise the pants would have been WAY too long.)
Ahh, let's see. What else have I been getting myself into this past week?
Oh, alright. I got one. Tuesday night, long after my interview, was College Night at the nearby community college. I went by myself, but fortunately ran into Amanda and her mother there :). I basically attacked Amanda from behind when I spotted her, hahah. Then we browsed all of the booths, grabbing packets and flyers as we went. Her mom had a party to go to, so Amanda chose to stay with me for awhile longer, and I agreed to drop her off at home later. So as we're walking along, this relatively, okay, PRETTY FREAKING HOTT guy comes up to me. I'm not used to this, by the way. And he's like "Hey, can I talk to you for a minute?" I'm caught of guard and curious, so I of course said sure. Then he's like "You see, my friend over in the grey is kind of looking for a girlfriend, or a girl to hang out with, something like that. So it'd be really cool if you texted him or gave him a call or something, here's his number." And he then hands me a little slip of paper. This is in fact, the first time a stranger has given me their number, hahaha. So as I walk away, I glanced in the direction he pointed to his "friend in grey" and sure enough, I see this hefty dude flashing me a goofy-ass smile, hahaha. Like I hate to be mean, but UGH. I don't know, the look he had on just screamed "Oh yeah, I'm gettin' some", like one of those cocky looks. But the guy wasn't even in my opinion, attractive >:/.Amanda looked at the same time I did, and started laughing hysterically about the whole situation, and I found the humor in it too, haha. Like I don't care what people look like, it's just incredibly lame to try to pick up a girl, a complete STRANGER, at a college night. Especially when you have your wicked hott friend do it, so the girl is more interested in him than she would be in you, hahah. I don't think I'm shallow, I'm just not desperate. I'm not going to hook up with some guy I don't know at ALL, from who the hell knows where, haha. I doubt I was the only girl he approached either. Even if the guy WAS in my mind, attractive, I would be VERY skeptical of getting ahold of some stranger. Especially if they were really good looking, because then there's the high probability they were playing a joke on me, haha. So that's my story of the week I suppose.
Hahah, that would be my pile of college pamphlets. My bag was so heavy that night.
Today was the blood drive. It was my first time, so I was slightly nervous. I followed the instructions and ate/drank plenty to be ready for losing a pint of blood that afternoon :P. It really wasn't bad at all. I tend to look away when needles are going in me, like when they pricked my finger, and when they put the needed in my arm. I need to become less squeamish about that, it's not a big deal or anything. The whole process went well though. It didn't seem to take a long time at all, like I don't think it took more than five minutes for me to fill up the bag. Maybe even less. I just feel like giving blood is a good thing to do because it's basically harmless for the donor, it just takes a little time, and slight discomfort. But you save lives, and that's what matters.
There's my complimentary tshirt ;), and check out the iodine stain, haha. That's the arm I had the blood drawn from, obviously. Then today after school I went over to Julie's with Amanda to watch the movie Julie, Jenna, and Dan made. They did this horror film based on zombie baby dolls, pretty much. It was awesome :D. I found it to be wicked funny, because Jenna plays a flawless role as a Grandma. She pulls off the old maid dress like nobody's business. Then Julie acted as this bratty, vulgar little girl. I don't know quite how to explain the whole thing, but if I had the capability to put it online for you guys, I would. Plus Dan did alot of cool editing on it. They shot the whole thing in like, five days, haha. But it was very amusing to watch.
Alright, well I think I'll conclude this post now.
Yay for #100 :). Have a good week everyone.
