Life is good. Halloween morning was Senior Munch, and Carly, Ashley, and I found full length pajamas and wore them. Needless to say we were the biggest sluts there. On Halloween we partied at my house which was awesome as usual. See for yourself.

halloweeeeen!!Collapse )

For Lauren

Funny story. So Jacob (kid at school who has down syndrome) made me the vice president of his club without really telling me. Later, I find out that I am the VP of Special Friends Club, and I'm just like "Okay, this club doesn't exist, I can deal with it." THEN he calls my house at 6:30 AM and I think it is my next door neighbor and say "What?! Are you seriously awake right now?!" and then I hear a "Sowwy" on the other end and start to apologize profusely. So the point of his call was to tell me that we had a club meeting at lunch and that I had to go to it.. So Lauren and I curiously venture to the room, and are wondering what in the world Special Friends Club could possibly entail. The mix of people was hardly appealing, and soon Lauren left me to fend for myself. Basically Jacob made everyone pray and played God rock for people to analyze. He also tried to make me talk, and have us break into small groups and sing songs. Worst 30 minutes of my life, but a damn good story.

Other than that, life is awesome.

P.S. I just got a letter in the mail and the front says: "If you're going through menopause...don't sweat it." HAHAHA

So I finally decided to apply early decision to UVa. (University of Virginia). I couldn't be more excited! My application is due Nov. 1 and I find out Dec. 1. Since it's early decision, if I get in I have to go.

If you haven't seen it...


I grew up in Charlottesville, so it's kind of like home for me.

bye bye bye

My tonsils are getting taken out on Monday. Soft treats, good movies, and good company will be greatly appreciated. Plus, I'm really funny on heavy meds.

Everyone,

I think I owe everyone an apology. I have been INCREDIBLY flaky lately, but I swear none of it has been intentional. AP's and IB's consumed my life for a few months, and I rarely had time for other activities. That being said, I am so sorry for neglecting everyone, and I want to see all of you this summer!!

On a lighter note, everything is going great. School is out in four days. The BFFs are staying local for college. I've been hanging out with Chris and Josh way too much and I love it and I love them. Zack is back for good, and almost everyone is back from college. This summer is shaping out to be one of the best yet. Keep your fingers crossed!
Has anyone taken the SAT more than once? If so, how much did your score change from the first time? I've heard that scores don't usually go up more than 100 points, but I'm hoping to turn a 2090 into a 2200.

Help please :)
