my god, hearing adam sandler sing that while parked in the middle of a 2 lane highway next to Jack Nicholson singing "tra la la la la" has got to be the FUNNIEST movie moment i've seen all of spring break.
And so the last week of my high school career is coming to a close.
A recap of last week...
wednesday: I went on the field trip for AP Enviro..it was 30 minutes long! Unfortunatly, i went with the worst carpool imaginable... they pleaded with the driver (the only guy) to go to fashion valley, where they proceeded to go goo goo ga ga over prom dresses and $60 bathing suit tops. "oh, that's so cute!" is a line i never, ever want to hear again. Wednesday was also day of silence, and I did stay silent for the most part while i was on campus. It wasn't bad at all. The worst part of the day was in Mc Millan's class, where Sam and Jessica were the only other participants. We were in a group to work on this activity and she separated us and told us to work alone, going so far as to give us EXTRA assignments. i'm working on not cussing so much so all i'll say is..Bitch. The day ended with an ap review session after school.
sometime early last last week i also dumped my prom date. Not sure when that was..
Thursday: we had this IDIOTIC disaster drill during which I ended up sitting on the freaken FOOTBALL field for like 45 minutes! Hello...SUNBURN???? and if its a drill for TERRORISTs don't you think they could shoot us all if we're in one tiny place with exits blocked by staff? I spent most of the time talking on my cell phone with bardia..we ended up walking arouond the whole field waiting for that stupid thing to end.
Friday: the last RO day of my career. Lots of fun times.. although, i've notice i've kind of grown out of it. I really enjoyed and put all i had into it this time, like all the rest. The best part was seeing all the alumni, some of whom graduated 3 years ago and came back to visit; i was really surprised at how many of those people, despite their outstanding high school profile and ambitious attitude, ended up going to community college..even those that got scholarships! good food, good times, cute shirt and nice rosy cheeks.
Friday night I went over to Bardia's house and had dinner with his family. That was SO much fun.. just thoughth i'd let the world know that he has this ID card from 9th grade that you simply cannot NOT go without seeing. I spent a good hour trying to take it away from him, and I succeeded, several times..but he got it at the end. damn. My all time favorite thing in his house was this silk rug he has.. i literally sat and stroked it, it captivated me so much.
Saturday: I spent the day at home.. reading angela's ashes if i remember correctly. In the evening i went with Bardia's family to La Jolla where, once again, I had an awesome time. I can't believe you guys have never been out on that splash pier thing before... Bardia, Shaheen, and I got totally soaked. It was WORTH IT. We spent the entire evening walking around La Jolla, went into a few funky little shops and had delicious dinner (i had linguini with goat cheese and alfredo) at this outdoor bar where we had an ocean view. So, so many laughs.
Sunday: Mother daughter day. Went shopping and had lunch. My mom bought me this really cool body spray in Vetyver scent. Now i can smell like grass. I had every intention to go to meditation class.. but I had a really bad migrane because my brain cells were protesting and, as you know, in democracy majority rules. So i didn't go. Instead my mom went through her jewelry collection and gave me all this stuff that she wants me to take so I can wear it in college.. thanks mom!
Monday: My sister took my mom out to base for her bday/mother's day shopping treat. I stayed at home and did homework like a good little girl.
Tuesday: Went with my mom to her ortho appointment where I spent a good solid hour studying for Euro. Afterwards, we went.. um.. shopping. At home I cleaned a lot. In the afternoon, my ex from sophomore year came by to drop off some herbs and we spent 2 1/2 hours driving all over the place and catching up. Good times, it was so fun to see that guy again. I've been doing that a lot lately..getting back to people I haven't been in close touch with for a while. Anyway, he even offered to help me with a certain sex related misfortune. Haha, thanks Arya. If the problem persists, I promise i'll give you a call.
Wednesday: my sister and her daughter came over. We had lots of fun eating popcorn, watching ducks, and the usual fun stuff. The funniest thing was when my mom said something to my sister and she responded with "No shit!" in a loud, excited voice...and immediatly the next thing you hear is 2 1/2 yera old Sasha saying "haha.. No shit!" lol, it was classic.
The whole time while Bardia was at Davis and Irvine we were texting.. 100 messages or something like that.
Thursday: lol I can't remember what i did. Sorry guys! oh.. to make you jealous.. I got 3 APES labs, an english journal entry, the english study guide, 60 AP euro notecards, as well as 75% of my spring project done while on vacation. so..Ha! I also talked to Alex online..he's chosing between Harvard and Yale and he cannot make up his mind! poor him..*snicker* We had an interesting converstion, mainly him talking, unburdening some old stuff, remembering moments of the past. Here's the irony: I recieved the appology I have been waiting for for over a year..and when it came, I didn't want it. It's like I waited so long for it that I stopped waiting long ago. I really didn't care about it anymore, which I didn't realize until the very moment that it came. I've closed the chapter of that book. What's done is done, and I cannot wish that guy anything less than the best in everything.
Friday: I have news. Bardia officially asked me out. I knew it was coming! And I, officially, said..yes. Surprised? quite frankly, with the amount of fun we've been having the past few weeks and how well we go together, I really don't see a reason NOT to date him. Not to mention, it's about time i had a healthy relationship, and crap from my old one has passed more than a month and a half ago. Anyway.. I had 5 1/2 hour date with him. We went to this incredibly beautiful field/park in Ranch Bernardo, where we discovered 3 abandoned bathroom/shed like structures and a really wrecked car. We kissed. Aww.. yes. It really was sweet. We also had lunch and watched Anger Management. I can't say it could have been any more fun :o)
Saturday: grocery shopping and homework, talking with lots of friends online
Sunday (today): Orthodox Palm Sunday. Ate a delicous meal of roasted lamb in red wine, salad, and a Kinder Surprise for desert.
I know it doesn't sound as exciting as going to london or spending 3 days at Yale..but I got a lot done and i've developed some really new and really positive thoughts and feelings, and have re kindled relationships with connections i once lost. I have to say this has been one of the best spring breaks i've had simply because, sitting here and knowing that it's over, I feel happy. :o)
I think i'm back to my optimistic self.
I hope everyone had a fantabulous spring break!
p.s. Did you know today is hitler's birthday? Happy easter everyone!
