It just kind of scares me, I guess.

Tonight I was thinking about a very exciting event in my near future: graduation.

Okay. So I’m not graduating until next year. But still. The seniors are FREAKING OUT and crying and stuff, and it made me think.

How many more times am I going to do these things with my friends?

  • Have “Free Dress Friday”
  • Go and have Bubble Tea together and look at all the weird clothes at Target
  • Have tennis practice [we make it fun!]
  • Have seriously deep conversations at our tennis matches [ok, mostly just awkward things that happen at volunteering, but still. I’m gonna miss this.]
  • Have “Tie Tuesday” [and have all my friends say “you look like Mr. fillintheblankteacher!” and have me say “omg I’m wearing a button down shirt, GET OVER IT.”]
  • Spend the whole math class period taking IB practice tests [ok, I actually love these packets.]
  • Hang out after school and do who-knows-what
  • Hang out before handbells concerts
  • Talk about how annoying the other grades are
  • Squeal over LBD/TV shows
  • Talk about tea
  • Stress out about the latest English reading/test/essay coming up

It’s kind of scary. I mean, on one hand, I’m happy to graduate [so, so, happy], but on the other hand, I’m never going to see some of these people again [which is a good thing] [except at our reunions, but stop ruining this for me].

Sigh. My friends and I better keep in touch. Skype to the rescue!

Until next time, Em 🙂

Maybe I’m not as much of an introvert as I think I am

Today was my first day of band camp, one of my favorite weeks of the summer. It’s a day full of 5 1/2 hours of playing your instrument, which fulfills my dream of going to Interlochen, almost. Today I:

1. Made a friend after being at camp for 2 hours (I always thought of myself as an introvert, but I guess I just hate people, especially people my age which tend to be immature and cruel)

2. Played a clarinet in my Second Instrument class (my mouth vibrated and hurt so badly)

3. Played a bass clarinet  in my Second Instrument class (I am never going to play a wind instrument. I hate having spit fly all over my face)

4. Saw my handbell teacher, because he was teaching the handbell class (he didn’t recognize me for a minute because I got my hair cut, and it was really awkward for those few moments)

5. Saw a LOT of cute guys (I didn’t know they existed in my state, except for the cute workers at the vacuum/sewing store and Whole Foods)

6. Saw a guy who looked sorta like Paul Rudd in Clueless, in the respect that he would be gorgeous if he cared about his appearance (Okay, he’s still cute, even if he doesn’t care about his appearance)

7. Ran around with a Barney doll that I found, trying to find my orchestra conductor (his name is Barney… only two people figured out that was why I was looking for him)

8. DID NOT GET TO PLAY THE TRUMPET IN MY SECOND INSTRUMENT CLASS (this is a dream of mine. Thankfully I will be able to play it tomorrow/the next day because my orchestra conductor was using it to play with the trumpet section)

9. Had one of the interns make fun of my Canada shirt by saying everything to me with “eh” added onto it (I thought this immaturity ended when you graduated from the 8th grade, the last time this Canadian-make fun of-ness happened, but I guess even college students are immature)

10. Said “hi how are you?!” to a random guy because I was feeling very extroverted/random

Until next time, Em 🙂
