Prom [May. 4th, 2008|02:18 am]
Mason
[Current Mood |gratefulgrateful]

Senior Prom was so ... fantastic!

Dinner was fantastic.
My date (the beautiful Ms. Taylor Allen) was fantastic.
Our pictures were fantastic.
All the other candid pictures were fantastic.
Breakfast was fantastic!
Everyone there looked fantastic.
Friends are fantastic.
Music was ... mediocre, at best. (I've never overly enjoyed the school DJs)

Out of every thing, however, I'd say the memories will be the most fantastic of all.

Grady and Shayla won King & Queen ... BUT I WAS NOMINATED FOR KING!!!
Like, I know I didn't win (which I still think is bull), but I was one of THREE guys to even have the HONOR of being on the ballot!!!
For the girls, it was either Taylor, Ruthie or Shayla - how can one choose? - so I went ahead and voted for my date; that was a tough call, I think they all deserved it.

And now,  I sleep. I'm exhausted, and I have an AP study party at noon tomorrow.
I love every thing, and especially everyone, right now!
Have a great day, all of you!!

P.S. There might be a dating prospect ... maybe. More on that later, if anything comes of it. ;)

Finally [Apr. 29th, 2008|10:07 pm]

[Current Music |"By the Sea" - Sweeney Todd]

This chapter of my life is coming to a close
...
but not without a fight.
As it turns out, this chapter's been a total bitch in that it's been all like "hey, every thing's easy!" for the last three quarters
and now it's getting really freaking hard.

Through Tuesday, I have no less than two projects due each day, a Statistics test on Thursday, and an AP Government test on Monday.
The Senior Issue of The Purr is set to come out for graduation, which means the end of this month. We have a ton of planning to do; fun planning, but planning still.
Bengal Follies are next Tuesday and Wednesday ... I think ... the dates have been changing a lot. Ruthie, Shaye and I are singing "I Believe" from Spring Awakening, while we have a group doing a Sweeney Todd medley, and a recurring skit about a bitch or something. Next Tuesday and Wednesday.
The finish date for my IDLA Fitness class - which I need to graduate - has been moved up a week, meaning I have two weeks to complete three units and a final.
My Statistics class will be done on the week of the 12th, which means I'll have to have my project completed. It's taking forever, and I still haven't even decided which p test to use. (Did I mention I don't understand chi-square?)
My manager at work is horribly forgetful / caniving when it comes to scheduling, and keeps forgetting I CAN ONLY WORK WEEKENDS! Maybe, just maybe, there wouldn't be so many schedule changes (which has been the recent problem) if she'd just FIRE the people who CONSISTENTLY no-show - seeing as how she has at least ten applications just sitting there with no eyes to read them - and LISTEN to people when they say "sorry, I can't work this day."

My dad's getting me a laptop for graduation. I get to pick whatever I want, accessories and all, and price is no issue. <3

I love Jekyll & Hyde.

Oh, and graduation's coming up. =)

Fitz is awesome.

Because she does such a kick-ass job at directing.
Because she teaches us all such great lessons about not only theatre, but about people, relationships and life.
Because she stands behind her perfectly justified decisions, even if it seems no one agrees with her.
Because she can put up with a group full of such back stabbers and still come out loving them like her own children when the lights go up.
Because she's Fitz.

Amen.

So I was looking through my photobucket account while procrastinating, and I found all my icons!

Remember last summer when I was obsessed with making those things?
Well, they're still here!

In fact, you can all take a look and see if there are any you want!

So yeah, I'll take requests, too!
I can pretty much make whatever you want ... but I doubt you'll get it until mid-May.

So, a freaking helicopter just landed in the next field over from our house.
It had blue stripes on the top.

There are a few people gathered over by where it landed.
I think someone might have been in an accident or something, I don't know.

And no, this isn't an April Fool, it seriously just happened.

OMG it looks like they're picking up a body!!

[Current Mood |thoughtfulthoughtful]

I love school. I love our abilities to learn about most anything we want and, thus, get a good job we enjoy from it.
I hate tests. Lol.
Finals have been the only things on my mind recently.
If not studying this weekend, I've felt horrible for not looking over what needs to be for memory refreshors.

Drama, drama, drama indeed.
I love every one of you, lol. It's crazy how much crap happens with us, but I kinda like it. With each explosion of emotions, we grow closer. It may not seem apparent, but I've seen it happen in my absence from fighting.

My absence from fighting ... it's been nice.
Just sitting back and watching.
There are some definite bitches in our clique; good thing we only deal with them at lunch, rehearsals and in Gold Voices.
Well, most of us, anyway.
I'm certainly glad I don't have to spend all my time with them. If I did, I'd probably turn into one of them, just as happened with them and previous bitches.

Bitches ... what a vague term.
What I mean by bitches in this sense is they're ALWAYS sarcastically passive-aggressive, only not so passive. They're horribly opinionated, and they speak out all the time, completely disregarding others' emotions and/or possible reactions.
They're perfect for eachother, ne vrais pas? =P

Wow, French sucks when not in the classroom setting. I'm learning pretty well, and I can practice as much as I want, as quickly as I want, but I just don't get the same depth to it. If I can't take French III in a regular class next year due to (fucking retarded) scheduling problems, then I'm just gonna say screw it, and I'll continue my studies in college.

Geez, scheduling.
I'm really curious as to what will happen with me next year. The classes I want to take are as follows: AP Government, Calculus, Anatomy, French III, Gold Voices, Psychology, Journalistic English 12, Off-Campus Fitness and Economics.
Of those, the ones I need to take are AP Government, Off-Campus Fitness, Economics, and some english class.
Well, english classes are screwed up right now.Collapse )
As for my other classes, I can't afford all that time, which is terribly unfortunate. I'm thinking the first I'd drop would be Psych, then either Anatomy or Calc. I hope I won't have to drop more than two classes.

Then there's the whole drama officer thing. I really really want to be one, but if I take all these classes and stay an editor of the paper, I don't know if I'll be able to.
Now that I think of it, I may want to just quit the paper allout.
But I'll cross that bridge when scheduling comes closer.

History consumes my everyday life just as Finals have been this week.
Same deal, if I'm not working on it, I feel guilty.

I love old fashioned donuts.

Our financial situation is really sucky right now.
Dad's retirement was taken away quite a while ago, which is ridiculous.
It really gets me, personally, because so much of my college money was stored away in there.
He's been working with airlines for over forty years, and fell out with downsizing. He's been screwing them right back by staying home on disability due to his accident a few years ago, and still getting paid. Recently, due to the downsizing, he's been getting paid more than if he were working. But, that's going to stop. Soon.
The worst part, we can't sue for what happened. We get absolutely nothing.
Our income is about to be based solely on how much Mom works, which will unfortunately have to be a lot.
Maybe we shouldn't have gotten the pool, lol.
Ah well, as Dad keeps telling me, it's nothing I need to worry about right now ... but ... I DO need to worry about how I'm going to go to college.

My plan right now is to go for massage therapy, then pay my way through school that way. Right now, meaning starting next semester, I'm gonna start scholarship apps.

Gabi and I tallied up how many volunteer hours we've gained over the years, and I don't know about her cuz I was in the bathroom, but I was really honest and went for every minimum (honest meaning I didn't count driving people around or opening doors for old ladies =P - and this isn't to say she wasn't either, just that I don't know) - and I've gotten shitloads. We figured it's about 340ish per show, and I've done 29(ish). Then, about 1000 hours per summer of volunteering at the VBGC. I did for five summers.
Woo.
Well on my way.

Wow, I think that's about it for now.
I'll talk atcha later, LJ.
Keep it cool.

So, on my French test yesterday, there were some sentence activies (go figure, huh?).

One of the sentences was "Tu veux grossir, manges les bonbons!"

HAHAHAHAHAH!!!

(For those who don't know French, that means "You want to get fat, eat bonbons!"

We choreographed Greased Lightnin' and most of The Hand Jive today at rehearsal, I freakin love dancing SO MUCH!! ...For those of you who weren't already aware of that. =P Yeah, those are neat dances.

Tried the going into French II at lunch today, that worked beautifully. It's amazing how much more you understand something when a teacher is teaching you rather than your book.

Tomorrow is the ONE rehearsal we can't miss for Grease until Hell Week starts up, and it's when we start making pages for The Purr. I'm gonna talk to Rebecca, my partner in crime, about it and hope she can cover for me for just tomorrow. I'm gonna have her tell them I puked my guts up and that I should be back to full health by Monday. I know, I shouldn't skip out on that, but I really need to go to tomorrow's rehearsal.
Liz, if you're reading, don't kill me.

Anyway, I'm sitting down and enjoying my dinner - a big yum goes out to my spinach, chicken and taters. My Chem test won't be very hard at all tomorrow, and memorizing the elements is going swimmingly; we only have 41 questions on the chapter five BLW; and I LOVE the math we're doing now. Basically, I feel really good. =D

[Current Mood |contemplativecontemplative]

I just realized...I really appreciate my dad. His way of making me a more self-driven person really pisses me off while it's happening, but really works in the end.

He's always been on my case about every last one of my responsibilities. All of them. Homework, chores, schedule-planning, getting to bed, driving.

Driving, I'm SO thankful to him for that! The whole time I had my permit, he'd ride with me no matter where I drove. It was SO annoying. He'd get on me about every little freakin detail. It pissed me off because not only was it annoying, but also because he was a really bad drive - still is - and half the stuff he got on me about, he did anyway. Because of that, though, I was ready for anything after just two months. Mrs. Hopper even told me after taking my test that she hadn't seen a new driver that was so critical about everything in a while. Thanks to Dad, all those little nit-picky things about driving are totally second nature to me unless I choose to ignore them. When that happens, I rearend county sheriffs *sigh*.

Homework, oh my goodness homework. It hasn't been as bad recently, but ever since I was four years old, he's reminded me every two minutes to get my homework done. I remember through gradeschool, he'd sit me down at the dining room table and not let me leave until it was all done. Now, it's just habit for me when I get home to finish my homework before I do anything else. It feels wrong for me to NOT get it done as early as I can.

Anyway, point of the rambling is that I'm truly thankful for Dad being so annyoing.

But then someone shouted, 'I think they're attacking!'

[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Wow, it's early. Not as early as I'm sure Jenny and Austin have been awaking, but still. Until today, I've only gotten up at 7:00am to take the trash out, and even then I'd just go right back to bed and sleep my lazy behind into the afternoon.

Jeez, I woke up at the time in which I'm planning on leaving home for the next, oh, nine months. I guess it'll get better as this all goes on. There'll be loads of homework and less sleep, but I'll get used to it just like I have all the years before this one.

Luckily, I'm not planning on doing any Civic shows this season (except maybe Jukebox), and those ultimately end up screwing me over. And, I must admit, Independant Study can basically turn into a study hall that takes place in Yarno's room. Maybe all this reviewing of the French language wasn't totally pointless, eh?

I'm going out to breakfast at Waffles N More with Bethany, Amy, Gabi, Jonelle and whoever else may feel like coming. Sorry Kendra, I hope your breakfast is awesome!! I may have to taste some leftovers tomorrow if we end up carpooling as religiously as last year. Heh, I'm probably going to end up eating the school's breakfasts every morning...like last year. Those were good, mmmmm!

I've been seeing the cast of Into the Woods around town randomly. It's like a scattered cast reunion or something. Haha, Kris scared the crap out of me at the Credit Union by sneaking up behind me while I was doing the lollipops and acting like an old lady. I don't think her intention was to startle me, but boy, did she. I love that woman.

I guess I'd better go shower now, I want to leave by 8:30. Jeez, that is early! And to think, that's going to be halfway through Journalistic English for the rest of the year.
Au revoir, mes copains! Vous avons un tres bien jour! I bet that second sentence was totally wrong...oh well, we have to take two years for a reason, no?

[Current Music |"Egg Quarters" - Sonic Adventure 2: Battle]

I've recently started praying again.

It was actually due to Jessica, Leanne's cousin. As I was praying for them last night, I began to think about all my friends' problems. I prayed for them, too. All of them I could think of.

It felt awesome. I was closer to God than I have been in quite a while. I think I'm going to make it a regular occurence, for me to pray. Just because I'm who I am doesn't mean I can't feel close to God, that's basically what's been holding me back.
Here we go again :P.Collapse )

I just discovered a lot about myself through typing this post of random thoughts.
And I guess Catholocism is pretty stupid most of the time...I just enjoy being one. :D Weird, huh?

Anyway...
