Like I really want to spend three days with all of you…

Today I have a class retreat, where my whole grade is driving off to some place in the middle of nowhere to “bond”.

Don’t get me wrong, I love hanging out with my friends. I just don’t love hanging out with the rest of my classmates.

Apparently the seniors are picking groups, and that means that every single person in our grade is going to be stuck with someone they don’t like. I’m just hoping that I will be stuck with one other person that I am friends with/can tolerate. Please. Please. Please.

And if I’m with a cabin full of people I don’t like? Well, I can read. I guess that’s something to look forward to.

And the snacks. Apparently someone is bringing a Costco sized container of Sour Patch Kids. Bring it on.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Like, really?

So today at band, I wore my (borrowed) “Hold Me” sweatshirt…

With the hopes of talking to that cute guy. Well guess what?

1. He arrived 5 minutes before rehearsal started – I couldn’t talk to him then!

2. He had quartet practice during break – he’s 2nd chair

3. He left right after rehearsal

WHY DOES THIS ALL HAPPEN ON THE SAME DAY?!  He usually comes early and stays late, and walks around by himself during break! 😥

Well, there’s always next week!

Also, I just ordered my tea! So excited!

Until next time, Em 🙂

Bittersweet goodbyes…

School is over in 3 days. I can’t believe this… soon I’m going to be going off to college (well, I have a couple years left, but still)… holy mustaches this is crazy.

On one hand, I’m really excited for it to be summer (laying around, getting through my movies list and books list, playing tennis, sleeping in, no more annoying classmates)

But on the other hand I’m really sad. I mean, after I go off to college, I’m not going to see most of the people I go to school with ever again… until our reunion, but still. Obviously I’m going to keep in touch with my closest friends, but it feels really scary that I won’t see them every day at school, and I won’t be able to chat with them for hours about pointless things and then screaming about the same things at school the next day. I won’t be able to rant about the new episode of Jane by Design or The Glee Project. I won’t be able to goof off in math class anymore. It’s just really scary, we’re all growing up so fast.

Well, that pretty much makes me pessimistic as I’m writing this post the night before my last final (I should probably sleeping, but… not gonna happen)… anyways, last night I watched the season premiere of Jane by Design, and let’s just say, I am very disappointed with Janie and Billy. If you don’t already watch this show, go, now.

Another really great show is The Glee Project. It’s pretty much a show about a bunch of talented young people, trying to earn a spot on GLEE. Now, this season will not be as good as the last one, because Cameron and Damian won’t be there, but it’s still gonna be great.

Also, my Favorite Playlist of the Week, or I guess just Favorite Song of the Week, I’ve Been Screaming by The Relay Company! All of their songs are really catchy but not too catchy (being on the radio would ruin them). And best of all, I feel like a hipster (one of my goals in life is to dress like a hipster, embarrassing, I know). Also, Let It Go by The Dunes is another great song! I heard both of these songs on Jane by Design, and let me just say my life has been changed.

Until next time, Em 🙂

That awkward moment when…

That awkward moment when the random, cute guy you saw at band practice 3 years ago shows up on Facebook. My friend tagged him in one of her pictures and can I just say he is looking fiiine 🙂

The best part is, he’s in theatre, he likes The All-American Rejects, he likes Lord of the Rings, he plays soccer, he plays an instrument, he plays chess (he’s starting a club at his HS), he’s smart, oh and did I mention he is SUPER CUTE?!

It sucks that I’m never going to talk to him, though. Yep, sure sucks.

Also, my Favorite Book of the Week! It’s called “Good Enough” by Paula Yoo, and is about a High School girl who plays the violin and is very stressed. There’s also some romance! I couldn’t put this book down. Go read it.

Until next time, Em 🙂

This is gonna be epic. Or just fail with epic style.

While writing that title, I realized that no, epicly is NOT a word. Sad but true.

Anyways, the day has finally come for me to do…. drumroll… LIVE BLOGGING!!! If you don’t know what that is, it’s pretty much when you write a blog post while doing something very important.

Backstory: yesterday I went to a concert and saw a kid who looked like Swimmer. And now I am going to tell Anna.

———————————————————————————————-

Em: “Should I tell my friend who knows him? She would laugh so hard!”

Shelly: “Yeah probably.”

Em: “What do I sayyyyyyyyyy?!”

Shelly: “I meant she would laugh really hard, but I suggest you don’t. Do whatever you want. My guess is because she is your friend she will try to help set you up with him.”

Em: “Oh I see. Here goes nothing!”

Shelly: “Bon chance!”

Em: “dkjskjsakncke”

———————————————————————————————–

Em: “I just saw a kid who looks just like Swimmer!”

Lana: “That is amazing.”

Em: “Haha yes! His hair looked just like Swimmer’s and I was like OH MY GOD I LOVE YOUR HAIR (but I didn’t tell him that!) Anyways should I tell my friend who knows him “hey I saw someone who looked like Swimmer yesterday!!!” or would it just be awkward?”

Lana: “You should!!!!!!!!!!”

Em: “OH MY GOD SHOULD I ACTUALLY DO THIS MY FRIEND JUST REPLIED”

Lana: “Say “oh the other day I was at a concert and I saw someone that kinda looked like Swimmer. Isn’t that weird?” or something like that”

———————————————————————————————–

12:27 – Starts typing: “I just saw this kid who looks just like Swimmer… creepy stuff going on with all of these look-alikes happening.”

*looking at my phone like it is going to blow up*

*send*

OH MY GOD WHAT DID I JUST DO HOLY MUSTACHES SHE IS GOING TO LAUGH SO HARD AND BE LIKE “WHY DO YOU CARE WHAT THE HAYSTACKS ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT” OH MY GOD…………

OH MY GOSH I SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE THAT, WHY DID I DO THAT!!!!! MY HEART IS LIKE A FREAKING DRUM!!! NOOOOOOO MY LIFE IS OVER AS WE KNOW IT!!! GOODBYE CUTE CAT THAT IS LYING OVER THERE I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! GOODBYEEEEEEEEEEE

12:33 – This was a terrible idea. Plus the fact that I sent my message 10 minutes after she replied to my “dude!” message… not great.

12:38 – Still no reply. I’m gonna go do some homework. BRB

3:00 – YES! SHE REPLIED!

Em: “Dude!”

Anna: “Whattttt”

Em: “I just saw a kid who looks just like Swimmer… creepy stuff going on with all of these look-alikes happening.”

Anna: “Yeah or maybe you’re just seeing all the guys you’re in love with ;)”

(WAIT. SHE KNOWS?!)

Em: “Excuse me? Why would you think I’m in love with Swimmer?”

(Smooth, Em. Smooth.)

Anna: “I don’t know maybe because you’re seeing him everywhere.”

Em: “Uhh what I saw a kid who looked like him… but ok whatever floats your boat!”

Anna: “Haha and I see you didn’t deny loving Justin Bieber.” (I told her I saw someone who looked like him yesterday)

Em: “I don’t, it was just weird seeing his doppleganger.”

Anna: “Haha good use of a Vampire Diaries word.”

———————————————————————————————-

Well, that wen’t surprisingly well. Sort of. Anyways, today I dropped my dad’s phone (I was using his because I dropped mine and it got the white screen of death because it is a really cheap phone) and it now has cracks all over it… sigh. At least replacement screens are only like $10!

Until next time, Em 🙂

Cinco de Mayo is usually a day for celebrating….

But it wasn’t for me. I went over to Anna’s house at 11 a.m. and watched her play tennis for 4 hours. Not fun. Then I expected to see Swimmer at her BBQ, but he DIDN’T SHOW UP. Apparently he went to someone else’s party. Sad. I’m actually sort of happy that Swimmer didn’t come because Anna and A were a bit… tipsy. Let’s just say that Anna told a 14-year old that she was going to marry him. So I guess it’s sort of good that Swimmer didn’t come. Sort of.

Until next time, Em 🙂

EDIT: Oh and I totally saw a girl who looks just like Rue from The Hunger Games. A and Anna were shrieking and she probably got freaked out.
