T-minus one week until grad! Yeah, I know it’s weird. We “graduate” over May long weekend, and then we have to go back to school for three more weeks. It’s weird being in school mode and graduating mode at the same time. On top of that I’m planning my summer and planning university stuff for the fall. It’s an odd time in my life, really. It’s like I have one foot out the door, but I’m not leaving for three and half more months.
My to-do list for the next week looks like this:
-Recover from the AP English Lit exam today, which turned me into a puddle of angst. Nothing like three hours of writing essays and dissecting poetry full of words you don’t understand to make you feel like you don’t know anything.
-Grandma’s 80th birthday this weekend. And once grandma goes to bed my cousin and I are sneaking out for a pre-grad party with her friends.
-Plan for hangover on Sunday from said party
-Go to pre-grad hair appointment on Monday and have an angst session with my stylist while we figure out what to do with my hair for the grad banquet.
But seriously how awesome are my shoes?
-Get those little nipple stickers because I can’t wear a bra with my grad dress. I don’t want to have to cross my arms every time it gets drafty at the banquet.
-Break in the mint green four inch platforms (they seemed like a good idea in the store while the saleslady gushed about how they make my legs look a mile long. I mean, they do, but I’m not sure I can walk in them.)
-Get accessories that will somehow match said shoes
-GET A SUMMER JOB because otherwise I don’t know how I’ll be able to pay for university
-Figure out when I have to register for university classes
-Figure out what to tell people when they ask me how the hell I plan on making a living with a journalism degree
-Finish reading Jane Eyre and then write a really profound essay about it to make up for the crappy excuse for a research paper that I submitted about Charlotte Bronte
-Try to not fail Chemistry
-At the very least try to not fall asleep in chem every day next week
-Pray for no rain on banquet day so that we don’t have to take grad pics in someone’s living room
-Take photos of field hockey, the world’s most boring and pointless sport, for the school paper (seriously what is the point of making the ball so heavy and the sticks so short that you have to hunch over? It’s like they’re purposely trying to make the game suck)
-Get caught up on Grey’s Anatomy before the season finale
-At least make an appearance at soccer at some point so they know that I’m still alive
-Ditto with track practice. I just need to attend enough practices so I don’t actually face plant in hurdles at the upcoming meet
-Send the school paper to the printers after editing all 48 pages. 48 pages of crap I might add. My articles are included in that crap because I haven’t had the time or energy to care all that much.
-Listen to all the hipster music Pal keeps sending me
-Try to remember to enjoy my senior year or something
-Try to remember why I thought I’d enjoy my senior year
-Try to not scare off all of my friends with the angsty noises I keep making
