- Second Day of Being Sixteen..
- May 13th, 2005
My second day of being 16 and I have to go to the freaking orthodontist. I hate the orthodontist. I’ve had braces on for almost 2 years now, and I hopefully I shall get them off right around Christmas. Until then I have to suffer through these visits. Blah.
Yesterday was sooooo much fun. Like I said in my last post, I had my hair straight and I freaked people out all day long. They were like “whoa! You look so different.” I don’t think I’ve ever received so many comments in one day in my life! Somewhat sad but funny at the same time. ^_^ Also I heard the birthday song three times at school. One on the bus, one in English class, and one in history class in which I had to sit on the birthday chair while they sang. Also in history we watched Hotel Rwanda, which is so sad!!! I’m not going to say anything other than it was sad and good at the same time.
When I got home my mom had brought home pizza (yay!) and then my cousins came over to hang out with me. They are all younger than me. The oldest one who is 4, can already write, speak in complete sentences, count as well as me, count in Spanish, count in French, knows his and mine phone number by memory, remembers the day of my birthday and how old I am turning, and can nearly write perfectly in Spanish and English. And he’s not even in kindergarten. Talk about a prodigy.
So then after eating, I opened my presents. I got about $95.00 and totaled up with my other savings I have about $160.00. I really don’t think I’m going to spend it all because this year was the first year my parents ever let me go to a convention, (damn parents) and I didn’t bring enough money. Well now I know better so I’m saving up for next year, little by little. I think the only thing I want to buy at the moment is a couple of anime DVDs. One is called Burst Angel; I saw an ad for it in Newtype USA. Also at the end of the month, the last DVD of Wolf’s Rain comes out. (Finally!) That’s all I want at the moment.
Also Akaru made the sweetest birthday banner ever. Its kingdom hearts and I LOVE IT!!! Thanks very much Akaru. It’s so sweet. If she’ll let me, I’ll put it up.
On another note, I think I found someone who can make the layout I’ve been requesting!!! Happy days!!!! Hopefully it’ll work. But now my birthday is over, and I have to focus on finals which start next week. *groans at the thought* The first day of finals which is next Friday I have English and AP World History finals. History should be easy because she said she wouldn’t give us a hard final after the AP test. English I know I have to write an essay because she told us yesterday. Stupid English teacher. On the Monday I have to take P.E and Geometry finals. Not too worried about those. On Tuesday I have to take Biology and Creative Writing finals. Easy. But on another topic
(it’s a little disgusting so beware) I had to dissect a fetal pig yesterday!!! Nastiest thing I have ever dissected. Ewww…*shudder* Then on the last day of school which is Wednesday the 25th, I have BCIS and Spanish. I am exempting Spanish and BCIS and P.E so I don’t have to come on the last day of school! Yay! Another happy thing is every year since 7th grade my friend who has a pool throws an end-of-the-year-party at her house. Last year they threw me and my friend in the pool. Whew! I think I’m done now. That’s the longest post I’ve ever written. Wow a new record!!!^_^
