"I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once."

As of Thursday, I am halfway done with my senior year. I passed Cal-cool-us with a B (which I am super happy with), and I am finally done with astronomy.

Thursday was a half day, so my friends and I went out to lunch at Freddy's.

Friday night, one of my friends was having her 18th birthday party. So earlier in the day one of my other friends and I made about 40 balloon animals to surprise her with. If in a few years our dream jobs don't work out, we will definitely go to kids parties and make balloon animals for them. But in all honesty they were terrible, some parts of them popped and they were so disproportional, so we told our friend they were Tim Burton balloon animals. That's how awful they looked.

Yesterday was our first rehearsal with the cast for South Pacific. It was a lot of fun, and I can't wait for tomorrow for another one. I haven't been involved in a play/musical since middle school, and I never realized how much I loved it.

Last night I read The Fault In Our Stars, and it was fantastic. I hate to admit it, but I definitely cried through most of it.

And finally, I just can not get enough of this song.

I could get lost in a voice like yours.

New Years Eve was fantastic.
Tomorrow I have my astronomy final exam, and Thursday I have calculus. I have an 80 right now, and I would love to keep it there. As for astronomy, I can not wait to get out of there. It is the worse class I have ever taken. I would love to take a class in college where I can learn something without having to rely completely on Google and Wikipedia.
Next semester I'm taking psychology and English, which I'm looking forward to.
The best thing that happened this week so far, is the Radiohead poster I ordered arriving in the mail, along with a wrist band.
I don't plan on going to prom, and my friends have given me a lot of crap for it. I would much rather spend that time with a friend who also doesn't plan on going to prom, hanging out together playing video games or watching movies. I came across some really cute ideas from a Tumblr post. These were some of my favorites:
  • Build forts out of furniture and blankets, and wage war with paper airplanes.
  • Try and visit as many people as you can in one night, and turn as many things in their apartment upside down as you can, without them noticing (he would definitely agree to doing this every time we hang out with someone else, haha)
  • In the middle of the night, drive to the beach, so you arrive just as the sun is rising (I've never gone out of my way to see the sun rise; I would love to do that. Also, I would love to "properly" star gaze. As in, not for my stupid astronomy class)
  • Drive somewhere unknown and have dinner in a city you've never been to. With fake names.
And finally, there's this boy, who is absolutely wonderful.
