So, all those horrible awful, doubt-filled days I've been having?

DONE. This week has just been so awesome that I feel like it makes up for every crappy day I've had since the beginning of the school year. I mean, nothing can really describe how I feel, but thisFlorence song comes pretty darn close.

So, reasons why I'm feeling awesome:

1. I got my scholarship reply in the mail! Along with my letter they sent me a box of yummy Godivas. I'm convinced that I'm going to the awesomest school in the universe.

2. Today I FINALLY learned how to make spring rolls. As someone who is half Filipino, I felt like a fail for not knowing how to cook food from my own culture, but now I know how to make yummy delicious spring rolls!

3. For my school's senior superlatives I was voted most likely to be famous (for girls) and I made it into the senior hall of fame, which is voted on by teachers.

4. Yearbook is THIS close to being finished. I mean, don't get me wrong, we're all sweating bullets trying to get pages sent in before deadline, but I'm starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel!

5. In a mere few weeks I will be in Dallas, dancing my face off to Grouplove and Young the Giant at the Prophet Bar. I.CAN'T.WAIT.

So yeah. Despite having to read Heart of Darkness, complete a take home test for AP Eco, write a children's book for AP Eco, complete AT LEAST two art pieces, and write a paper over Rosencrantz and Guildenstern--- ALL DURING SPRING BREAK--- I'm going to be ok. Everything is great.


  1. YAY OPTIMISM!! Also, I adore Flo + the Machine. I think the beginning of March is always super ridiculously stressful because that's when the reality and responsibilities of school are most apparent.

    After taking a few deep breaths, I can say I'm with you. Work will not change, so my attitude towards it is going to have to :)

    Also, now is the time to register for the AP tests... yuck!

  2. I love Florence! And spring rolls! Haha! If only all school's gave you chocolates!!x

  3. I'm glad things have picked up, and that is quite a lot of good there :)

  4. Those are all excellent excellent developments! Most excellent? Going to see Grouplove! #envy

  5. You have the best attitude!

    And those chocolates look delicious.

    Have a good spring break. :)

  6. I'm glad everything is going very much fantastically now. :) Having fancy chocolates sent to you is definitely a mood enhancer! And Grouplove AND Young The Giant?! JEALOUS.

    We're reading Heart of Darkness right now too. So very dry. My spring break isn't until April, though, sadly.

  7. Congrats on your scholarship! That's awesome that they sent chocolates. :P
