(no subject)

-So my mother must think that I'm a morbid, depressed teenager who enjoys reliving and wallowing in my less than perfect high school years, because she just sent me a link to a scholarship essay titled "The Worst Day of my Life". The assignment is, you guessed it, to write about the worst day in your life. Um, thanks, mom? I'm glad you see my life as such an unhappy series of events with which you can decrease the cost of college! Haha. How weird.

-Other than that, today was good. The weather was beautiful (made me realize that if I get into Stanford or Pomona [pleasepleaseplease!!] that I will probably end up going, because I'd be crazy not to stay in California if given the option). I even took my shoes off (granted, they gave me blisters) and went driving with Kirin and Meredith and listened to rap; man, it really felt like summer. My "Perfection" piece was submitted to Aquila (not that big of a deal, but still quite nice) and I momentarily appeared as if I knew what we were doing in multivariable calculus.

-I have to squeeze enoough motivation out of me to last eight more days, one english paper, a history final, an econ test, a performance studies project and final, a mycology final, an english final and god knows what in multivariable. So far I've been putting everything off as much as possible, but I know that the end of this week/this weekend/next week are going to be crunch time. Agh.

-I've realized that I either go to the gym too often, or talk about college to often (probably a mixture of both), because it's gotten to the point where pretty much everyone at my gym is asking me where I'm headed next year (I wish I knew!). I'd be lying if I said that I didn't feel as if I would be letting my favorite instructor down if this whole process didn't turn out sucessful (which I've been really stressing over lately, of course). After all, she has, on two occasions, told me that I have a "black girl booty" (which is very far from the truth, but still puts a smile on my face).

-We had to take our senior class picture today and line up in height order. Turns out I'm the SHORTEST PERSON IN THE SENIOR CLASS! I guess that's cool? I don't know. A little bit sad if you ask me, but also somewhat amusing.

...and once again my life can be summed up by schoolwork, senioritis, stress, college, working out, crazy parents and vertical shortcomings. Oh yeah, and the fact that Greg is kind of cute.
