I can't believe it either, people!! It is the first day of school!!
I woke up a wee bit late (because of my insomnia problem last night), and I was just trying to get ready as soon as possible like every other student that started today. The outfit I picked out turned out as a hit at school. I wore a cute bright turquoise tube top that had Aztec-like designs on the bottom hem w/ a black knit cover up (can't wait tubies to school!), dark wash bermuda shorts, and my Pocahontas shoes (aka mocassin/gladiator sandals). I kinda just threw it together, but I did say I was going for effortless, ha!
So, I got my outfit on, and the last things I put on were my Keltie Colleen mantra cuff + Buddha beads my dad got me from China a couple years ago. I can never leave the house without either, and I knew that I was going to need all the courage, passion, hardwork, and prayer that I needed to get through this hectic day. What really made me excited was that I got just as many compliments about my cuff + beads as my outfit did! I told every person who told me that they liked the cuff to go to Keltie's website to get one. I'm like the un-official spokesperson for Keltie's website, ha! Best job ever probably. <3
Getting schedules and laptops still seemed strange to me. I walked into the school with the last bits of summer on my heels, but I guess it rubbed off as soon as the school day started. I saw my Specialist Nathan today for the first time since he went to boot camp. I missed him so much, and he wasn't kidding when he said all his hair was gone, welp. Also, it felt very strange not to see my best friends walking around the school anymore. They're off to college having the times of their lives while I'm stuck here for another 2 years of high school, blech! ButI feel like this year is just going to fly by!
Remember I was freaking out about my ex's mom being my photography teacher? Well, she was very sweet, and I really wish I hadn't reacted that way. She was always nice; I was probably thinking of my ex...
Chemistry isn't anyone's favourite subject, but we have to take it. We had to write about 50 elements of the periodic table on notecards for a quiz next Friday. I ended up messing around with the symbols and tried to spell "fearless". It consists of Francium (Fr), Lithium (Li; I covered up the "i" so it would make more sense), Einsteinium (Es), and Sulfur (S). I maybe having a little too much fun with the elements right now, but I know I'll be ready for that quiz next Friday!
I'm sorry to all you History lovers out there, but I hate History. We have to read a chapter in the book tonight (which is 20 pages, but it will seem like 23o9847239 pages to me) and answer a few questions for a grade. I'm sorry to say that I don't have the attention span to read about a subject that I don't like...this year will be a great challenge in my History class.
Then the rest of the day, I kinda zoned out. I was just so overwhelmed by the upperclassman-ness, the college classes, and not having my best friends around the school anymore.
One more thing:
You know when you want to hug someone, yet they didn't realize it. They then keep walking as you try to continue to hug them, and it ends up as some awkward side hug. Yeah, sorry about that...but you're quite text beckoning me to come meet you after school was sweet. I'm kind of glad that I didn't get it until later because it proved to me that you really just want to talk and catch up. I'm not even going to bother asking why you didn't show up last week or why you haven't been answering my texts. I'm just gonna enjoy talking to you and staring into your wonderful eyes...
PS. I got lucky with today's outfit. How's tomorrow's gonna go? Eep!
