Don't you love it when you wait for some moment and when it finally happens, it's just as awesome as you thought it would be?

Don't you love it when you've waited for some moment for such a long time, but when it finally happens, it's so far from what you thought it would be?

5:31 pm - '06
So I don't think I've updated my LJ for quite some time now...

So today was the last day of school. I thought I would feel something, but I don't. I thought I would be happy, sad, relieved, or something. I just feel like it's my time to go and that's about it. I mean, I'm going to miss all my friends, not that I don't plan on keeping in touch with all of them, but I don't think I'll start to worry about it until I have to leave for college.

Graduation is tomorrow. I wonder what that's going to be like.

4:53 pm - A Wendy Hu inspired post
Since Wendy nailed how I'm feeling right now, I thought I'd add a little.

I miss trusting people
I miss when "I promise" was good enough
I miss caring about life
I miss late nights
I miss when a promise meant something
I miss sleep
I miss actually having to try
I miss having aspirations
I miss normal weekends
I miss solid relationships

Go to Wikipedia. In the Search box, type your birth month and day (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this in your journal.

Three events:
1872 - Women's suffrage: In defiance of the law, suffragist Susan B. Anthony votes for the first time, and is later fined $100.
1912 - U.S. presidential election, 1912: Democratic challenger Woodrow Wilson wins a victory over the Progressive former President Theodore Roosevelt and Republican incumbent William Howard Taft.
1935 - Parker Brothers releases the board game Monopoly.

Two births:
1857 - Ida Tarbell, American journalist
1913 - Vivien Leigh, English actress

One death:
2005 - Link Wray, American musician

There were a lot of other interesting events on my birthday, but you can't fit everything!

I just saw Capote. I'm pretty sure that may be the best movie I have ever seen.

3:27 pm - Long time no update
Okay since I have last posted, I have:

1. Applied to college
2. Finished the newspaper
3. Become awful at economics (I was never good in the first place, I was okay, but now I just suck)
4. Realized that I only need 2 of my classes to graduate and my class rank/GPA no longer matter, so I don't have to do crap
4. Started a bit of anarchy in my physics class when I announced #3, everybody turned in their tests without finishing as soon as I said it
5. Decided I watch too much TV
6. Made living with my parents awkward
7. Become the proud owner of the coolest mix tape ever

current mood: apathetic

8:17 pm - 0 fucking 6
I have decided that I hate school. I hate my new schedule. Human geography is stupid.

My new English class is boring. My new pre-cal class is just awkward. The human geography teacher is annoying. Gah, I can't wait until my schedule gets put back to the way it was.

I am so sick and tired of hearing every Tom, Dick, and Harry shout "'06" Go fuck yourself. If you define yourself by your goddamn class, what are you going to do when we graduate?! Shut the hell up. Nobody cares. Go get a personality and then maybe we might want to pay attention to you, but until then I would like to learn in Economics. Would all of you please just shut the fuck up?!

By the way, if you haven't bought First Impressions of Earth by The Strokes, you need to. It will make you forget that the class of '06 exsists.

current mood: pissed off

Did you make any new enemies? Not as far as I know
Did you resolve any fights? Of course I did
Who were your closest friends? Ya know

2005....The Holidays!

Did you have a Valentine? It may have been Elle, I don't remeber
the Easter bunny visit you? Heck yeah
Did watch fireworks on the 4th of July? No, I was at the goddamn Whataburger working
Did you dress up for Halloween? I put on a wig for like a minuet
What did you do for Thanksgiving? I went over to the Taylor's house and got drunk and watched That 7-'s Show

2005.....All about YOU....

Did you change at all this year? I'm pretty much a whole new person
Was 2005 a good year? It was the shittiest year of my life. Thinking about it just makes me want to break down and cry, but it was good for me. I think it was a defining year. Even though the general feeling I get out of it is shitty, I think I also had the most fun this year. I know it's weird, but how the hell else would you sum up 2005?
Did 2005 bring any new insights? A lot, I realized that people generally have an idea of who you are, but of course you aren't always going to fit into that. Just do what you want snd don't give a damn what people think. That includes the people you are closest too. I also realized that all the world's problems can be related back to selfishness and you could probably solve all your problems if you wanted to just by listening to other people.
Do you think 2006 will top 2005? It better.
Do you have any goals for 2006? Yeah, but they all sound stupid, so I'm not putting them on here
Do you wish 2005 wouldn't end? I started counting down the minuets a month ago. This year better end now.
Do you plan to do anything special for NYE 2006? I'm going to a party
Who will you be kissing at Midnight? TBA

2:37 pm - The Final Countdown
It just hit me on Friday that I'm a senior. I'm going to graduate in May. I'm going to go to college. I'm going to have to leave my home and all my friends and go to some city and live with a stranger and take care of myself! I know it will just be weird when I come home. Everyone will change, everything will change. I'm not ready to grow up. I'm not ready to leave. It just hit me that our days are numbered.

Do you ever notice how it always ends up that you have a bunch of homework in all your classes at the same time? I did no homework on Monday, I did none of Tuesday. Today I can hardly think because I have so much!

I finally understand why people think that journalist are evil. After learning that one of our school buses crashed into a truck and killed the driver, I became excited because that's going to be a kick-ass front page story!!! Seriously, it's going to be the best one yet.

Yeah, I know I'm going to hell or whatever, but I'm atheist, so you can just shut up.
