The stone in my class ring inexplicably shattered at school a few days ago. I know almost exactly when it happened, because I tend to rub it without thinking, and I had done as such about 5 minutes before I saw that it was broken. I didn't hit it on anything, it was just broken all of a sudden. I was sitting on plastic bleachers crowded with people, so I'm sure I would remember if I'd hit it on something hard enough to break it.
I didn't get to wear it to Prom. D:
SPEAKING OF WHICH!
Prom was a blast. I didn't dance the entire time, partly because I didn't have an actual date and partly because I can't stand to grind on girls I've known since before I can remember. But there were plenty of other prudes like me, for a while at least, so I hung out with them whenever the music was too terrible to stand.
Can you believe that there's a rap-ish remake of...er...that Journey song? (Look at me, I don't even know the name of the song...) I mean, why? It's a great song, all you can do is make it worse.
But I had a great time. There were a few songs that weren't just some kid dancing and wailing with Auto-Tune, and I danced to those. Sometimes, if I couldn't dance, I did what any loser does and made it up. Fun stuff.
Boy, it was hot.
My friend Kierra didn't have a date either, so we hung out and acted crazy together. I managed to gank a slow dance from Kilo's girlfriend. That was an experience; we would stop intermittently and start doing another dance. I also somehow got sucked into a dance that I would have done well to avoid.
I grabbed two of the glow-sticks that the DJ was throwing around. Sweetness.
As fun as the dance was, before and after were even better. I was with Keener, Kayla, Kilo, SuZZ, John, Mike, and Ian. We went out for dinner, where we encountered the coolest waiter to date, made a bunch of private jokes, and almost choked on laughter. Well, Ian almost choked. I just chortled.
'ey, can we get some more PL ova here?
After the dance, we all crashed Keener's house, and...get this, had a sleep over. Not such a big deal to many of my few readers, but this was big for me for three reasons:
1) I've never slept over coed before. That's right: I lost my coed virginity last night. Me and John, both. Teehee.
2) It was totally a surprise. I knew Keener was going to have a sleepover over, but I thought when she said sleepover she meant just the other girls. I was happily surprised.
3) My mom was totally for it. wtf
So, we sat around for a long time, then went to her HUGE backyard and tried to watch the sky. When the UFO that AJ (he joined us after the prom) had seen turned out to be a firefly, we gave up and went back in. I wanted to sleep at that point, (it was 2 or 3ish) but instead we watched An American Haunting (again). That was so exciting that by the time it ended, everyone was asleep except for me, and SuZZ & Mike on the couch. We went to bed at that point, but nobody slept until almost 6.
In the morning around 9, Keener's mom made waffles! :D
So we sat around outside, eating and talking and telling stories, and oh, what a great way to end Prom. I'm glad I turned down the limo ride and the other after-party I was offered.
But now I'm so tired, and I have to take back the tux.
And that reminds me. I popped a button off the vest. Hahaha.

Well, looky-there, I forgot a title.
SUNDAY: Freaking out because John and I have a video to film/edit by Friday, because I thought I had been assigned a crummy group for Appalachia this summer (it's not crummy, on second thought,) because I had 11 nasty Lit Logs due Tuseday, and because I had some nasty Math homework for a quiz grade and more for Tuesday for a Project grade.
MONDAY: Freaking out because I didn't do any of that except the math homework and 8 lit logs, and because we wanted to finish the school art magazine on Monday (we came really close!)
TUESDAY: Freaking out because we'd only recorded one scene, the Math project wasn't quite done, (we finished it,) because I had to finish those lit logs, because there was a small crisis when we packaged our final draft of the magazine, and some just for good measure.
WEDNESDAY: Freaking out because Thursday and Friday would be Practice Exam days for Math, (they count as tests in the class, though,) because we still only had 4 out of 5 scenes and no editing, because apparently our layout wouldn't print well because the bars didn't have enough bleed and because the page numbers would get cut off (thanks for the heads-up, Mr. Printer Guy), because I really didn't want to spend my little time at a Poetry reading that I hadn't even volunteered to attend, much less read at, and because I would be performing a skit in English Thursday with a group even though I basically had no idea what I was supposed to be doing.
THURSDAY: Freaking out because the first part of the math exam was hard as crap, and because:
-Movie Maker at my house didn't work.
-Audacity at John's house had some issues (he fixed them).
-Movie Maker at his house didn't work, either.
-The codecs that John uninstalled to speed up his computer happened to be the ones that made my film clips readable. (We had to re-install them)
-Movie Maker still didn't work.
-iMovie is only for Macs. Should have known that, but I got my hopes up.
-WAX movie editor, which is free-ware, can apparently only read .avi files. (I went home to convert all the clips)
-I can't convert to .avi.
-The converter John finds on the internet takes its sweet time and also 99% of the CPU power.
-WAX video editor is extremely confusing at first glance.
-It was 10:30 at night.
(Once we made the decision to stick with Movie Maker, even if it crashed constantly, it stopped crashing. -explode- Basically, half the night was wasted.)
FRIDAY: Freaking out because the teacher had some notion that the main idea of our video had been to translate all the speech into NewSpeak (heck, no), because the second part of the Math Exam was even harder than the first, because I made below a 90 on a physics test, which basically means the world is ending, because Mom nearly broke her ankle, and because X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a huge let-down.
Tonight is Prom night, and I'm only a little excited. :P I might freak out, just for old time's sake.
My dreams betray me
Thursday. 4.30.09 10:48 am
Does anyone else have the problem where you start to dream before you properly fall asleep? I don't know how else to explain it. I guess it's just the effect of an over-active mind. Blah.
As for the dream itself...it was another epoch, though this time I didn't realize it was in my head (I've been doing that a lot lately. Pretty cool.)
There was one part I remembered abruptly this morning while I was brushing my teeth, and I almost choked on my toothpaste. It was kind of comforting at the time, but now that I'm awake it just makes me feel...guilty? Annoyed? I don't know, and I refuse to worry about it because it's really not important.
My hand had a mouth in it. That was part of the dream; people could get, um, super powers or something for one of their hands. I forget the other ones I could choose from, or what mine even was, but I know that it included a small slit with teeth on the inside. I didn't use it to eat anything because...I think it was because I was worried it would hurt or something.
I love how my dreams always have that bit of adventure that could make a good novel.

A sad song, but sad in a fiercely happy way.
Now I'm sad again. Haha. Well, no. Not sad, really. Just kind of down. I crave companionship! That's why lunch is the best, because it's comradeship in its purest form. Now I'm just lonely. Meh.
