Other People Want to Keep in Touch

✍ CURRENTLY WRITING FROM: SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA

My hair actually looked this way when I woke up this morning.  I took this is a beautiful sign and proceeded to make myself presentable in the best possible attitude.


Yesterday…  was… my last day of school!  Well, as a junior, anyway.

Today, I woke up and the first thing I noticed was that one of my socks had disappeared into my sheets.  I swung my leg around (or, as much swinging a leg can do underneath heaps of soft pillows) to try to feel/find it.  A window was open, and a bird’s chirping was distracting me.  I had opened it at one o’clock in the morning, I remember, because I couldn’t fall asleep.

I walked over to the window to close it, since my room was getting cold, and noticed a bee.  Just sitting there.  Pretending like it helped set up that window there.  Hmm.  I scrambled to find my stash of toothpicks (which I use to lit candles whose wicks are too far into a jar for my lighter to reach) and tried to poke at it, but the trooper stayed.  Also, I felt bad.


I noticed the state of my hair as I walked past my mirror and am embarrassed to admit I smiled at myself for about fifteen whole seconds.  Then I remembered I had braces and cut that out.

I also remembered that I had to take my SAT’s.  Then my hair didn’t make me feel as fancy as it once had.  It was a relief, though—last night I realized that school wasn’t over until I had finally taken my SAT’s.  Good news, though!  My hair worked.  I think they went…  well.  I was a bit uncomfortable to see so many people from my school, there, though.

After my test, I bought series three of Doctor Who.  And I watched it all.  In one day.  (Can you believe I used to hate Martha?)

Phew.  It still feels like I’m going back to school on Monday.  I’m a senior or something, apparently.
Also, yesterday, after I came home from school (see?! It’s so natural!) I made a video!  And I…  felt strange.  But excited!  Because I’m actually somewhat proud of it!  I really wanted to go to the park, or to the pool (typical things that teenagers do in summer movies, so I wanted to do it!), or do something summer-esque to celebrate my seniorhood…  but I couldn’t do things.

So I stayed home and did things over and over in front of a camera.
