"I could be the Walrus but I'd still have to bum rides off of people"

Random Thoughts:

Ahg. I hate the end of terms. I've barely had any work this whole semester and now bam! All of the teachers decide to pour all of these tests and projects on us within the last two weeks. How are we expected not to procrasinate if they do the same things themselves. Oh yeah, and not to mention finals. I still have two weeks left, yet I can't help but feel a little bit stressed, maybe like I should have been actually trying to learn things all semester rather than just memorize random information and then forget it.

Yesterday was good fun with Mads. RENT was incredibly sad, but so, so good. I'm still devastated that I have no talent in the singing, acting OR dancing areas therefore all my hopes and dreams of ever being in a musical are completely unrealistic. I'm really not artisticly talented in any way, or at least no way that I am aware of. This bums me out a great deal.

Just when I thought that we had this weekend all figured out I find about Sunday. Oh dear, such a dillemma. Hehe. Cassi and I are thinking of going in for the kill tomorrow night and asking mom and dad if we can go. If by some miracle they agree then we will have be sneaky on Friday, and I am utterly terrified! God damn parents.

Alright! So now I need some advice. In a few weeks I will take a huge step further into my awkward teenage phase as I get braces, on every single tooth in my mouth. However, I do have the option of getting invisalign on my top teeth. Although this does sound apealing I some people have warned me against it due to the fact that it cuts into your gums, spit and other crap gets stuck in it, etc. If any of you have had braces before I NEED YOUR ADVICE! Also, what are the best colors?

And just one more thing: Does anyone here have any creative ideas for a presentation on Plato? If you do, let me know.

Dude I am a master on Plato!!! Maybe you could do a presentation where you say some words of things (like, giraffe, car, house) and ask people to draw what they see as the stereotypical visual. Then you can talk about Plato's theory of the "real world" of perfect forms and the "shadow world" of imperfect forms.

That is just off the top of my head, call me if you need help!! (415) 640 6461

Ooh, thanks Emily! I was doing some more research today and came up with some more ideas. If I need some more help I will definitely let you know!

I had braces for two years, and yes I had them on every tooth in my mouth. Once I got used to the normal braces it wasn't a big deal. They don't hurt when you first get them on, but I remember the next day they hurt a lot. So there's a warning for ya.
I would suggest any color, EXCEPT yellow, cause then it just looks like you had a lot of food stuck on your braces.
Good luck...it's gonna be a bitch to have 'em...but in the end it's all worth it. (At least in my opinion it was.)

i've never been able to get braces because of issues with my jaw, but...

a friend of mine has invisaline and she thinks they're fine. it hurts when she puts the new ones in, but she has a system that whenever she chages them she does it right before bed so all the pain occurs during her sleep.

as for colors, i've always heard grey is good because it makes your teeth look whiter and isn't as distracting as, say bright green.
